The design is striking and obviously there has been a lot of thought put into this part of the game as the reels are designed to look as though they are on a sail with the masts and rigging surrounding them. The high card symbols exude what can only be described as pirate writing with the 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace in various colours and awarding the smaller wins. Apart from the 9 the other card symbols need three on a line to award a prize. The larger wins are made by landing the unique picture symbols and these include a parrot, the pirate ship, a dagger that is stuck through a treasure map but the best of all are the compass and the beautiful pirate Queen herself. The compass and Queen award the largest wins and only two are required on the first two left hand side reels rather than three as is the way to win with the other symbols. Landing five of the compass or Queen and the player will then amount a massive win that ranges from x2 their line bet up to a whopping x750.
Another symbol that awards the top prize is the gold skull and cross bones and landing the full complement of five and the win an be up to x9000 the line bet. The gold skull and cross bones is also the wild and will substitute all other symbols to create winning combinations. This is not all though as any symbol on the win line that the wild substitutes will double in value. The scatter in this slot is depicted by the treasure chest and this is the only symbol that the wild cannot replace. The treasure chest can pay out x2000 the coin value and when players land three in a row the scatter will trigger the free spins bonus game. These free spins are not normal spins, they are rather special as the player gets to make the choice of volatility for the round by selecting how many spins they want and the multipliers that are applicable to them.
Free Bonus Games
The options on offer for the free spins are Pearl games, which sees 20 spins being played and any prizes tripled. The Jewels game where the player is awarded 15 spins with x4 multiplier added to any wins. The Silver game provides 20 spins with x6 multiplier added to wins, or for those who really want to take a risk there is the Gold games where the player gets just six spins, but all wins are x10. Decisions, decisions!
Should the player land three or more scatters whilst in the free spins round, the round is played again but automatically at the spin to multiplier ratio that they had already determined. Finally, if you need more, all wins can be gambled and choosing the correct colour of the face down card will double the amount won, this can be repeated 10 times, however to land ten correct guesses in a row really would be lucky.
