Reef Raider™ slot next pirate-themed slots addition

I’m a fan of pirates! Not the modern ones, of course! Captain Flint and Captain Jack Sparrow are definitely two of my favourite pirates while I always appreciate a good pirate-themed video slot, series, or film. NetEnt developed quite a few pirate-themed slots, but we might have lost a few of them over the years with Ghost Pirrates™ and Rage of the Seas™ left, as well as Pirate from the East™ for the Asian market. As you can’t have enough Pirate slots, NetEnt announces its 4th Pirate slot Reef Raider™!

Reef Raider™ slot launch

Hook’s Heroes™ is one of the pirate-themed slots we had to say goodbye to thanks to the HTML5 upgrade a few years ago. In return, Rage of the Seas™ found its way to the online casinos in 2020.

Therefore, there are now 3 pirate-themed slots available at the NetEnt Casinos in total. A pirate slots adventure often provides a Galleon ship, canons, a little monkey, a parrot, a giant squid and of course, pirates!!! However, I don’t have any clue yet what the Reef Raider™ slot is going to offer. For that, we need more than just a short description and a name.

That doesn’t mean that we’re not interested in the tiny details such as the launch date, of course. NetEnt announces the new pirate slot as Reef Raider™ with the launch planned for 12th August 2021.

This means that it won’t take long for a new bunch of pirates to arrive at the NetEnt Casinos. And as I said, I don’t have many details, but let’s see what the few details I have say about the new pirate-themed slot.

Like all pirate-themed slots or not?

What to expect from an intro like “Get your sails set pirates and discover the reef’s treasures with NetEnt’s Reef Raider slot!”? If you ask me, it’s clearly a new addition to the category pirate-themed slots. There’s no doubt we’re going on a raid to find some of the ocean’s hidden treasures. Do I agree with stealing from the sea? No, but as long as it’s fictional and good for a great slots adventure, it’s fine by me.

With the next part of the description, “Reef Raider is a video slot developed by our NetEnt team, that can be played on desktop computers and mobile devices. This slot machine is due to be released on the 12th of  August 2021,” we don’t get very far. It’s usual these days that a desktop version and a Touch® version are launched with each new NetEnt game. But it’s useful to know that we can expect it to arrive at the NetEnt Casinos on August 12.

And the last part “At this time, no further information is available, including reel format, features, gameplay mechanics, or visual production. As soon as we receive more information on the Reef Raider slot, we’ll publish an update,” won’t help much either.

Let’s talk existing pirate-themed slots

As mentioned before, pirates remain in the spotlights, the reason they appear regularly in NetEnt slots. We might have lost a few pirates on the way, but at least we can still enjoy the Ghost Pirates™ slot and the newer Rage of the Seas™ slot.

There’s almost always a parrot involved and a big sailing ship! Who knows what new characters we can expect from the Reef Raider™ slot, but I’m pretty sure they are just as cool as the pirates we find at the NetEnt Casinos already.

Rage of the Seas™ slot

Expect a feature-packed game in which you will sail across rough seas!  The action doesn’t start straight away, but wait until the monkey shows up in order to open windows. You will start with an amazing 1024 ways to win, but keep an eye on this monkey for the number of betways to expand.

The Boost feature, as well as Free Spins, can lead you to a dazzling 5488 ways to win. Meanwhile, you enjoy a good number of random features including Spreading Wilds, Stacked Wilds, Major and Minor Reel Upgrades, all good for a good winning boost!

The random features come with the Feature Spins, activated with either a Boost symbol or when you activate the Free Spins feature. Feature Spins have a lot in common with Free Spins, except they’re not free.

Activate up Free Spins with three Boosted reels (3 Boost symbols) or 3 or more Scatters. You can activate up to 12 Free Spins with at least 3 Random features activated:

All three middle reels will be expanded during Free Spins with an amazing 3 features activated for an incredible winning boost as it means all 5488 bet ways are available during Free Spins.

Ghost Pirates™ slot

Looking for a typical pirate-themed NetEnt slot, you have found yourself one with Ghost Pirates™. This video slot was one of the first NetEnt slots that offered up to 243 Bet ways instead of the traditional Bet lines. This spooky pirate game does fit the category pirate-themed slots as no other.

I love Ghost Pirates™ since its launch in 2013! That’s 7 years ago, but the game still looks as if launched recently. The theme has been used numerous time by software developers, but NetEnt’s Ghost Pirates™ is still in the game!

The game offers a low RTP, but once you hit that Free Spins feature, that’ll be forgotten. The feature offers you 15 free spins with an amazing x3 Multiplier. No innovative bonus features or animations, but it’s still a great game.
