Pirate Gold bonus features
When we first open Pirate Gold, it is set in a tranquil harbour, mist shrouding the ships at anchor. This is a pirate game and you will see some familiar pirate symbols – treasure maps, doubloons, someone’s spare hook, a treasure map, a telescope and even a parrot feature on the reels, which appear to be wooden.
The most rewarding symbols are the two pirate characters, which give the player 12.5 times their stake when five land in a winning combination.
The treasure chest symbol acts as the Wild, which can substitute for any other symbol except the Scatter. Wilds can appear on reels 2 to 5.
Lucky Treasure Bag feature
There’s one other symbol that can land on the Pirate Gold reels and this one is extra special. The money bag symbol appears with cash amounts or jackpot prizes displayed on it. When 8 or more of these appear on the same spin, the bonus round is activated, with the money bags the triggered the symbol locking in place through the 3 re-spins that follow.
During the re-spins, only money bags, multipliers or re-spin symbols can appear. Some spaces can also be blank. The re-spins tally will reset to 3 each time a new money bag lands. Once all the re-spins are done, all the wins are added together and if a multiplier appeared during this feature, it will be applied here. Multipliers up to x5 are possible.
Pirate Gold Free Spins
The compass is the Scatter symbol. It will trigger 10 free spins when three appear on the same spin. These will take place on a different set of reels, set against a very different background to the base game – the sea churns as a storm batters the ships.
During free spins, both the pirate character symbols are Wilds if they appear on reels 2 to 5. Free spins can be re-triggered by landing 3 or more Scatters and there is no limit to how many additional spins can be triggered this way.
Pirate Gold jackpot
There are three jackpots to be won on Pirate Gold – the Minor jackpot, worth 50 times the stake, the Major jackpot worth 200 times the stake and the Grand Jackpot, worth 1,000 times the stake. Jackpots can be won during the Lucky Treasure Bag feature and filling all 20 spaces on the reels with jackpot symbols unlocks the Grand jackpot.
