Pirates of the Mediterranean Slot Review

Ahoy, fellow gamers! Prepare to set sail on a thrilling adventure across the high seas with “Pirates of the Mediterranean,” an online slot game developed by Spearhead Studios. This captivating title invites you to join a crew of fearless pirates as they seek untold treasures and legendary riches. With its enticing visuals, engaging gameplay, and rewarding features, Pirates of the Mediterranean is a worthy addition to any slot game enthusiast’s collection.

The beautiful graphics of the game were among the first things that drew our attention. Spearhead Studios has done an excellent job creating a visually appealing, even though, static world, showcasing detailed and vibrant pirate-themed symbols. The backdrop of a sun-kissed open ocean adds to the game’s immersive atmosphere, transporting players to a time of amazing adventures.

You’ll find comparable gameplay concepts in other titles with a related premise (Cursed Seas, Barbarossa, etc.) but here, things aren’t that complex. There aren’t that many amazing bonuses to keep track of making the game rather simple yet enjoyable.

As for the audio, the game’s soundtrack captures the essence of classic slot machines. You are going to hear the traditional reel spin n’ stop sounds. Nothing less, nothing more. That’s it. Still, call it nostalgia if you want, it manages to immerse us further into the theme.

How to play Pirates of the Mediterranean

EveryMatric is known as one of the biggest software providers in the iGaming sector and in case you didn’t know, it also is the parent company of Spearhead Studios which was created in 2019. This isn’t one of their earliest creations since it hit the market in 2021. Even though it didn’t manage to become a hit overnight, it did capture the attention of many slot aficionados.

As for the actual game, the slot maintains the traditional 5-reel, 3-row slot format offering no more than 10 fixed paylines. This means you’ll have to bet on all of them if you want to play.

As is usually the case with that provider’s slots, most of the controls are placed with mobile adaptability in mind meaning they are in thumb distance. The process of adjusting the bet size and spinning the reels is rather straightforward as is entering the paytable or in-game menu for more information. The only thing that requires some stretching is the audio mute button located near the top left corner of the screen.

Different from the demo mode, in the real money version you can wager as little as 1 cent and as much as 100 bucks per spin. We found that interesting as it goes to show the developer really though of every type of player regardless of their wallet size.

The RTP of “Pirates of the Mediterranean” is 96.02% but can fall to 88% based on the active mode. The hit rate is around 20-25% with the volatility being super high (as is usually the case with this kind of slot game) and a top prize worth 10,000x the current stake. (Full board of wilds).

There are 10 regular symbols. First come the 6 traditional playing card values 9-10-J-Q-K-A followed by the cannon, the pirate sailor, the pirate maiden, and the pirate captain. The special symbols are:

  • Wild/Gold Wild – The colorful parrot will substitute for all other regular symbols to create or improve upon existing paying combinations.
  • Scatter – Landing 3 or more treasure chests will trigger the free spins mode.

Pirates of the Mediterranean Features

We know we said the game is rather simple and we stand by that while at the same time telling you that even though a special feature is offered, its mechanics are extremely easy to understand.

Pirates of the Mediterranean Walking Wild

During any spin a gold wild may appear on any position on the reels. This is the standard walking wild meaning it will trigger respins, moving one position to the left, and continue doing so until it walks off the panel.

The process continues until there are no walking wilds in sight, because, as you might have figured, more than one may appear. Free spins can be normally triggered during a respin.

Pirates of the Mediterranean Free Spins

Every time you land at least 3 scatters you will trigger the associated bonus game. A compass will appear and award 10, 12, 14, 16, or 18 free spins. All wins pay 4x but if a wild is involved they pay 8x. Free spins can be retriggered. (In recent versions of the game, the bonus can be purchased)

Pirates of the Mediterranean Gambling Ladder

This is a 50/50 chance mini-game you may play after each winning spin. It is divided into 3 levels and 13 prizes in total with the top one being 150$.

You can gamble and if you succeed you climb to the next prize. However, if you lose while being in the first zone or the bottom prize position of any zone you will either lose everything or demote to the immediate less rewarding one. We don’t recommend risking it unless you choose to take half of your win after each successful gamble.
