While it may sound like the title of a straight-to-DVD horror movie, Ghost Pirates is actually an incredibly well designed 3D slot from NetEnt that offers players up to 243 ways to win. Featuring five reels and 3, 9, 27, 81 or 243 ways to win, the slot is another flexible addition to the NetEnt catalogue that serves up a top prize award of 1,500 coins per line and a free spins feature in which players could land up to 25 bonus games. During these free spins, all wins are also tripled in value, making it a highly lucrative feature that can substantially boost players’ bankrolls.
It’s pretty hard to veer too far of course when you’ve made a slot called Ghost Pirates, and NetEnt have certainly stuck to the script in terms of the game’s theme. The reels sit in front of a dark and murky-looking sea with undead pirates hanging in the rigging at the sides of the screen. The symbols themselves, meanwhile, depict all manner of creepy characters from Peggy Rotten to One-Eyed Ed, with lower value icons being comprised of smoking pistols, skull vases and cursed pendants. The game features an eerie piece of background ambience throughout, with the wail of spirits and the creak of wooden floorboards perfectly complementing the slot’s ghostly theme.
With the 243 ways to win largely taking top billing, there aren’t actually that many other features available in Ghost Pirates, with a free spins game being the main source of bonus earnings. Triggered whenever three or more treasure chest scatter symbols appear in succession starting from the left-most reel, players can land up to 20 free spins unless they’re playing with all 243 ways to win activated, as this increases the total up for grabs to 25. All winnings accumulated during free spins will be subject to a 3x prize multiplier, making it a potentially a hugely rewarding bonus feature.
There can be no denying that the console used in Ghost Pirates looks a little bit different from other NetEnt games, with players having to select one of five pre-set options when it comes to active paylines. The same goes for bet level, with players simply having to click the level they wish to play for from 1-5 to highlight it, but thankfully the more familiar left and right arrow are on hand to control their coin value from £0.01-£0.50. All three of these aspects are combined to make the game playable from £0.01-£62.50 in total, but the greatest rewards are only available when playing with the full 243 ways to win enabled.
An altogether different title from NetEnt, Ghost Pirates is a deliciously dark video slot that will haunt your dreams with its state-of-the-art 3D graphics and immersive sound. Come to terms with this ghoulish onslaught on the senses, however, and you will find a game that is hugely rewarding thanks to its whopping 243 ways to win and an incredibly generous free spins feature.
