Any fans of Pirates of the Caribbean will fall in love with Ghost Pirates online slots game, which is surely based – to some extent – on the series of blockbuster movies. Ghost Pirates is a NetEnt production which simply wows with perfect graphics and an atmospheric theme. The game is set upon a haunted pirate ship with plenty of spooky characters and the sound of waves crashing against the decaying vessel. There are 5 reels, 3 rows and up to 243 ways to win in this intriguing game, which offers a range of bet levels and bet ways for a captivating twist.
The impressively designed reels of Ghost Pirates display a range of pirate-related imagery: think anchors, cannons, maps and compasses plus skull-engraved vases. There are character symbols too; these are higher value and feature Peggy Rotten, One-Eye Ed, Mad Monkey and Polly the Parrot.
There’s also a skull wild, which substitutes for all symbols, and a chest scatter. Check out the dazzling animation as the wild helps to create a win.
So there’s an interesting feature that runs throughout gameplay in Ghost Pirates. The player has the option of choosing the pay ways amount, from 3, 9, 27,81 or a massive 243 ways to win. Of course, choosing 243 ways will award larger payouts and more free spins if you’re lucky enough to trigger the bonus feature. Players can also select their bet level (from 1-5) as well as the coin value. Experienced game players are sure to enjoy this increased level of interaction and control.
Landing 3 or more scatter symbols in succession from the leftmost reel will grant free spins will all wins subject to a 3x multiplier. Usually, 3 symbols will award 10 free spin, 4 symbols will award 15 and 5 symbols will award 20 free spins. However, if you are playing the maximum amount (243) ways to win, then 3 symbols will grant 15 free spins, 4 will grant 20 and 5 will grant 25. For this reason, and the increased payouts on certain winning combinations, we’d recommend that you choose to play 243 ways to win.
In typical NetEnt fashion, this is a great-looking game with superb graphics, animations and sound effects. We have come to expect nothing less, in all honesty! The game features make for some interesting gameplay since you have greater control over your bets, pay lines and ultimately the payouts and bonus, as a result.
