January 15, 2017
The theme of pirates is popular in online pokies. Microgaming is a leading software provider to Australian online casinos and includes some exciting pirate themed video pokies in its portfolio. These can be played at online casinos like Casino Mate, Royal Vegas and Spin Palace.
Shiver Me Feathers is one of the oldest pirate themed pokies from Microgaming. The typical pirate expression Shiver Me Timbers has been changed because different birds represent pirates. The parrot as the pirate captain is the wild symbol and also awards the top line payout. The other pirate is a mutinous looking crow. The other thematic symbols include crab, Jolly Roger flag, map and treasure chest. These are designed in a comic manner. The treasure chest awards the scatter payouts and triggers a free spins round. You are first taken to the second screen and asked to pick a gold chest and a red chest. Your choices determine the number of free spins and the payout multiplier.
Loose Cannon online pokie has 3D graphics with the reels set on a pirate ship. It also has 243 ways to win. The pirate symbols include the captain and a female buccaneer. The other symbols are monkey, treasure chest, map, flagon of rum and pistols. The largest line payouts are awarded by the game logo. The compass symbol triggers 15 free spins in which winning combinations can appear left to right and right to left. The pirate ship is the wild symbol that creates a wild stack on reel 3. When this happens, the ship’s cannon may fire and turn additional symbols into wilds.
In Booty Time as well the pirate symbols are represented by birds. Captain Squawks awards the top line payouts. Other birds are engaged in different pirate activities like steering the ship and firing the cannon. The captain’s table is laid out with gold coins, quill, rum and a candle. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons embroidered on colourful flags. The game logo is the wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property. The treasure chest triggers the free spins feature known as Bounty Bonus. You first pick one of the treasure chest symbols to reveal the number of picks awarded on the second screen. Then you exercise those picks to determine the number of free spins and the payout multiplier. These are added to the initial award of 3 free spins and a multiplier of 2x and the feature is played out.
