Ghost Pirates Slot review
Ghost Pirates, from Net Ent, is a game with ways to win and a gorgeous design, typical for a slot inspired by the life of pirates.
The game’s pirate theme is not unusual for this industry, on the contrary. Pirate themed slot machines are found in most collections offered by developers, so no matter at which casino you’re playing, you will find at least one. Ghost Pirates is available at Net Ent powered casinos, and it’s going to be a good looking game, with only themed symbols on its reels, with a few good features, 243 ways to win and paying up to $3,750.
The scene that you’re shown in Ghost Pirates is from a storm out on the ocean, with a ship visible as it’s being approached by a huge wave. On the reels, the symbols will show you only pirate related images, including Mad Monkey, Polly the Bird, Peggy Rotten or One-Eyed Ed.
The bets you get to place in Ghost Pirates cover 243 ways to win with up to 25 virtual lines, to make it easier for you to place a wager. Each of those 25 lines gets 1 to 5 coins, and their denomination will go up to $0.50. You end up with line bets of $2.50 this way, and totals of up to $62.50. You can use fewer than 25 coins as well, but that means having fewer ways to win active. The smallest possible bet is at just 1 coin, which gets you 3 ways to win.
Scatter symbols are not as useful here as they are in other slots. They act like regular symbols in a slot with ways to win, having to appear starting from the left side and going to the right on consecutive reels. If you get the Treasure Chest scatter on three to five reels, with 243 ways to win active, you win 15 to 25 free spins and 3x multipliers for the prizes. Scatters also pay up to 50x the bet value.
The Pirate Sign, the skull with two crossed swords, is the wild, which substitutes for other symbols, without exceptions. If it’s present on the reel on which you need it, it can even take the place of a scatter.
The pirate theme might be common, but the ghost pirate angle I haven’t seen before, and it’s excellently handled in this slot.
