Jolly Roger 2 Slot Review
For starters, Jolly Roger 2 is nothing like the original Jolly Roger slot from Play’n GO, both visually and technically. Sure the pirate theme is still the same, but it’s better and more sophisticated. It does mean that the gameplay got a little bit more complex too, but there’s nothing that you couldn’t work out after a spin or two.

Jolly Roger 2 Bonus Features
There are so many bonus features in this slot that it’s quite challenging to describe them all in detail. From wilds, scatters, win multipliers to symbol upgrades, symbol transformations and three different free spins round, there’s never a dull moment with Jolly Roger 2.
Depicting death in pirate language, the skull and bones symbol acts as a standard wild and fills in for all paying symbols except scatters.
You’ll find the eye-patched pirate Roger himself playing as a scatter aboard his own pirate ship. Landing three of such symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 will take you right to the Bonus Quest round.
The Multiplier Compass feature is a new addition and worth mentioning right at the start. Located atop your reels, it activates on any spin at random awarding you a multiplier of up to 10x.
Bonus Quest Feature
Bonus Quest is just a fancier name for a pick bonus game. In this game, you get 12 treasure map rolls each hiding different bonus features. By picking and matching 3 of these features, you’ll go on to trigger three different free spins rounds or instant cash rewards of up to 20x your bet.
Prepare to try and activate not one but three different free spins rounds in the Jolly Roger 2 slot.
First up is the lethal but delicious Bottle of Rum free spins game during which you’ll have to taste rum from 5 different bottles and try to avoid the poisoned one. During this round, one or more reels could turn wild and a multiplier compass triggers at any time.
A lot can happen during the next bonus round – the multi-level Treasure Hunt. You’ll get 10 free spins to start moving up a level. For each new level achieved you’ll get additional free spins, symbol upgrades and symbol transformations or win multiplier boosts.
The third option, the Battle or Freebooter free spins round featuring 3 lives and unlimited free spins, is the most dynamic. This game is a fierce battle between the Merchant Ship and the Dutch, Portuguese or British Privateers. The ship that collects more gold coins wins the battle.
It won’t always be possible, but your ultimate aim is to sink one of the Privateer ships for maximum awards. These will include an extra life, a free spin with a multiplier compass active and a respective Pirate Victory award. The latter differs depending on which ship – Dutch, British or Portuguese – you sink. Here’s what’s on offer:
- Portuguese Victory Reward – 1 or 2 random symbols transform to wilds.
- Dutch Victory Reward – synchronised reels display the same symbols.
- British Victory Reward – all high-paying symbols get upgraded to treasure chest symbols.
Jolly Roger 2 Jackpot
The Jolly Roger 2 slot is not a jackpot slot, but it still offers some decent loot – up to 5,000x your stake.
RTP and Volatility
Set to medium volatility, the slot will afford you more action in terms of landing bigger wins which is much needed when trying not to lose all your hope and bets within the complex bonus features. The reasonable RTP of 96.2% will also help to keep the balance between your wins and losses.
