Walk the plank for wins in Jolly Roger slot from Play‘n GO! Based on the life of pirate, the game is set on the seven seas and can plunder you treasure chests full of gold! Hopefully. It’s kind of like Space Traders, but set on the high seas.
There are no Free Spins on offer here, which is a rarity, but hopefully the game’s other bonuses will make up for it. Let’s play slot lovers!
The backdrop to the reels is a pirate ship (of course). In the distance, you’ll spot a silhouetted vessel sailing across the horizon, while seagulls cry and the waves lap against the shore. It’s doesn’t have some of the sharp HD graphics we’ve come to expect most Play’n GO slots, but it looks fun in a vintage kind of way. Your wins come with sound effects, too; cannons fire gold coins and you’ll hear a nice little calypso ditty. It has really got the kind of slick graphics that you’ll see on games like the North Storm slot from Rabcat, but then again, it’s not pretending to be anything other than a traditional game.
Jolly Roger slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 15 pay-lines (5 fewer than 9 Pots of Gold from Gameburger and Microgaming) – bets start at 0.15 and go up to 70.00 per salty sea dog spin.
All your reel symbols are represented by pirate-related objects and include swashbuckling cutlasses, a rather robust cannon, the pirate ship, the one-eyed pirate in a green bandana, an antique gold coin, a ruby-red bejewelled ring and a huge diamond.
The Jolly Roger flag is by far the most lucrative icon on the pay-table – it will scoop you 10000 coins of you land 5x in a row. It is also the game’s wild symbol, and will substitute for all other regular symbols except for the bonus icons. Best of all, it will double all your wins, too!
The map represents the scatter, and the treasure chest is a bonus icon. These exceptional little symbols are the key to bonus features.
Good news! You’ll not find 1 but 2 bonus rounds in Jolly Roger Slot namely the Map Bonus and Chest Bonus. Hurrah and huzzah!
The Chest Bonus
Land 3x, 4x or 5x of the treasure chest symbols and you’ll be taken you into a mysterious cave piled high with jewels and gold that also contains 5 intriguing treasure chests. Pick two out of the five treasure chests and you’ll reveal some decent cash prizes.
The Map Bonus
Hit 3x of the treasure map icons anywhere on the reels and it’s a brand new pirate adventure for you. Next, you see a map of a desert island surrounded by the sea. There are five ‘X’ marks on said island. Pick 3 places out of the 5 to dig out for treasures – and you’ll be rewarded with coin wins
The Monkey Verdict
Truth be told, I had my reservations about Jolly Roger slot – as there are no Free Spins on offer and the visuals aren’t exactly first class. However, there are wins to be made with that x2 Wild multiplier and the pick ’em bonuses. are reasonable.
It’s a basic slot, but sometimes less is more my fine friends. Set sail for pirate gold aboard the Jolly Roger – it’s most certainly worth a spin or two.
