With plenty of shoreline in Australia, the lure of the sea is inevitable. One way this attraction manifests is through pirate themed online pokies. Microgaming is a leading software provider to Australian online casinos like Casino Mate and Royal Vegas. It has some fantastic pirate themed online pokies in its portfolio.
Shiver Me Feathers is one of the oldest pirate themed online pokies in the Microgaming portfolio. Birds take on the role of pirates as the symbols on the reels. The parrot as the pirate captain is the wild symbol and also awards the top line payouts. The other bird pirate is a crow. Then you have the regular pirate themed symbols like crab, Jolly Roger, map and treasure chest. The graphics are comical and add to the visual appeal of the online pokie. The treasure chest awards the scatter payouts. It also triggers the bonus feature when the symbol appears on reels 1 and 5. You are first taken to the second screen and asked to pick a gold chest and a red chest. One reveals the number of free spins awarded and the other reveals the free spins multiplier.
In Booty Time online pokie Microgaming carries the bird-pirates concept further. The captain is a parrot named Squawks. He awards the highest line payouts. A parrot is at the helm and another is firing the cannon. The final thematic symbol is the captain’s table laid out with gold coins, quill, rum and a candle. The Booty Time logo is the wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property. The treasure chest symbol triggers the free spins feature known as Bounty Bonus. You pick objects on the second screen to win free spins and payout multipliers. These are added to the initial award of 3 free spins and a multiplier of 2x. The Bounty Bonus can be retriggered.
Loose Cannon is visually the best of the Microgaming pirate themed pokies with symbols in 3D and some amazing win animations. It also features 243 ways to win. The symbols include pirate captain, female pirate, monkey, treasure chest, map, rum and pistols. The game logo awards the largest payouts. The free spins feature is triggered by the compass symbol. You are awarded 15 free spins in which winning combinations can appear left to right and right to left. The pirate ship is the wild symbol. It creates a wild stack when it appears on reel 3. The ship’s cannon may fire and turn additional symbols into wilds before the payouts are awarded.
