Even though Pirate’s Gold has five reels and nine bet lines, and usually would belong to the video slots category, Pirate’s Gold is a classic slot.
The five reels, so recognisable from the many modern video slots at the Netent Casinos, have been placed into a traditionally designed slot machine. This is how it became a classic slot, even though the game itself tend to be a modern video slot. This way Pirate’s Gold offers you the best of both worlds, so to speak, including a bonus game.
Classic design, modern game
Pirate’s Gold is a nice mixture between the classic and modern slots completed with a nice design. If Pirate’s Gold would have been a live slot machine 20 years ago it definitely would have been called innovative, but we’ve got spoiled and used to the many extra features and cutting-edge designs of the modern games these days. And so Pirate’s Gold ends up at the classic slots even though the game looks much different than the traditional slots such as Mega Joker and Super Nudge 6000. The panel got the classic look, and symbols like Any and the Treasure Chest have been found in many classic games, but the paytable, five reels, nine betlines and the bonus game are related to the modern slots.
You can bet on up to nine bet lines, but when you decide to play with just one bet line, a minimum bet of 0.10 will be available. Play with nine active bet lines and your bets will start from 0.90, but maximum bet covers all nine bet lines at ten coins per line. If all played with the maximum coins, a maximum bet of 9.00 will be available. Nothing impressive for the high rollers, but perfect for the low risk players who love to build up their game slowly as there are 90 different bets available in total. If you click Max bet, the reels start spinning automatically.
With a theoretical return to the player of 97.3%, your chances to win are quite good when you choose to play Pirate’s Gold. This must have something to do with the many payouts as they can be found in the paytable. With more than 20 different winning combinations and the nine bet lines, I do understand the high return. And although a classic slot, Pirate’s Gold offers a bonus game too.
Bonus game feature
There are two pirate themed bonus features to look out for. The first bonus feature is triggered when three gold coins align on an active bet line. You will be brought to the seven seas where a battle has to be fought and you will be a big part of that. Always wanted to be a pirate? This is your chance as you will be the captain, deciding what ship has to sink. It’s up to you to choose the enemy and activate canons, so in the end your wins can be revealed. Once your enemy has sunk, you’ll be brought to round number two as it’s time to get what belongs to you, the treasure. Choose one of the three treasure chests to unlock another great award. Being a pirate doesn’t have to be a dream anymore as sometimes dreams do come true.
