Pirates Gold is an online slot game that is considered a classic styled online slot but has some features of the more modern video slot. Unlike ordinary classic slots, this one features a five reel setup with nine pay lines. Designed and developed by Net Entertainment, Pirates Gold offers the best of both and is a popular game amongst players in America.
The Theme of the Slot Game
As the name suggests, the theme is based on pirates and a hidden treasure. With Pirates Gold being a classic slot there are no outlandish animations and graphics as simplicity and focus on wins is the main aim. There is a feel of the original classic slots found in land based casinos and bars across America, with sound effects reminiscent of an actual slot floor. The reel symbols are themed and include a golden coin; a treasure chest; a ring; a cannon; a conch shell; a sword and the pirate’s skull and crossbones flag.
Betting Options and Game Play
Up to ten coins can be bet on each of the nine pay lines. There is however only one fixed value per coin placed but this is set at 0.10. Pirates Gold has a maximum bet of $9.00 which is perfect for casual players. Anything below the maximum bet can be placed manually by using the single line or all lines buttons. The game features a max bet button which will automatically place the maximum amount with one click and automatically spin the reels.
Once the betting online wagers are placed either the spin button or the auto play feature can be used to spin manually for each individual spin or to spin a predetermined number of spins automatically.
When the reels stop spinning any winning combination that is displayed on an enabled pay line is paid out according to the pay table which is located at the top right hand corner of the screen. All of the winning combinations consist of matching symbols landing consecutively from the furthest left reel and running towards the right.
The Pirate Island Bonus Feature
As a classic slot, Pirates Gold does not feature any wild symbols, scatter symbols or free spins that can be won but with a modern twist on the game Net Entertainment developed it with a bonus game attached. There are two levels to the pirate island bonus feature which is initially triggered when three or more of the golden coin symbols land on an enabled pay line. The aim of the bonus game is to shoot at an enemy ship in order to win 10x, 50x or 100x the pay line bet. When a golden key is revealed by hitting the ship, the second level of the bonus game is triggered. The golden key is then used to unlock on five treasure chests. Any treasure chest can be chosen and each holds a random mystery prize of either 100x, 200x, 500x or 1 000x the pay line bet. The bet amount is dependent on the bet that was placed on the original spin that triggered the bonus game.
