Ghost Pirates Slot Review

Remember the scene in Pirates of the Caribbean where the pirate ghosts walk along the ocean floor? Well, this isn’t far off from that as it features ghosts of pirates hence the name of the game. Let’s check it out!

The static background of the game consists of two ghost ships from the sails of which, pirate skeletons are hanging. The reel set occupies most of the screen as it is also surrounded by an elaborate border featuring silver decorations, lit torches, and flags indicating the number of active ways to win.

As for the mechanics, Ghost Pirates works just like most other slots as the reels start spinning altogether and come to stop one after the other consecutively with winning symbols becoming animated and triggering a short audio effect.

Utilizing pirates as a slot theme isn’t something new as there already is a good bunch of similar slots available. If you’re looking for more then we recommend you check out Thunderkick’s “1429 Uncharted Seas”. For now, let’s focus on Ghost Pirates.

How to Play Ghost Pirates

The game consists of 3 rows and 5 reels with up to 243 ways to win. The controls are found below the reels allowing players to adjust the bet size, enable the max bet function, spin, or enter the in-game menu. Something really odd about this game is that an autoplay function isn’t available.

As for the stakes, bets start at $0.01 (3 ways to win) and are capped at $62.50. Ghost Pirates is a medium to high volatility title meaning that winning spins aren’t going to occur frequently. The maximum exposure is somewhere around 1500x while the RTP is fairly low for NetEnt standards at 95.28%.

Ghost Pirates features 6 low paying and 4 high paying symbols. The first come in the form of an anchor, a flask, a cannon, a map, a coin, and two pistols. The most rewarding symbols are represented by the characters of the game. In detail, these are Polly the parrot, Mad Monkey, One-Eyed Ed, and Peggy Rotten.

The game’s special symbols are:

  • Wild – The wild is represented by the skull and bones symbols and substitutes for all symbols.
  • Scatter – Represented by the treasure chest symbol, 3 or more scatters trigger the free spins feature.

Game Rules

Ghost Pirates Features

The game doesn’t have much to offer feature-wise other than a single free spins bonus mode. Still, as you’re about to find out this can be fairly rewarding so without further ado let’s check it out.

Free Spins

3 or more scatter symbols must appear in succession starting from the leftmost reel in order to trigger the feature. All free spin wins are tripled. The wild can substitute for a scatter but only if it follows the basic prerequisite of the feature’s triggering mechanism. Based on how many active ways to win there are, the awarded free spins are as such:

  • 3, 9, 27, or 81 ways – 3 scatters award 10 free spins while 4 or 5 awards 15 or 20 free spins accordingly
  • 243 ways – 3 scatters award 15 free spins while 4 or 5 awards 20 or 25 free spins accordingly
