Pirate Gold Deluxe was released on November 12th, 2020 by the industry-leading slot game developers Pragmatic Play. Pragmatic Play initially launched in 2015, and since then they have gone on to launch many successfully online slot games including titles like Star Bounty, Wild Walker, Emerald King, and Jungle Gorilla. They have upgraded the original Pirate Gold game with exciting new features and gameplay. It’s always hard to deliver a sequel, especially when the original game was already good, but Pragmatic Play has managed to pull it off.
This game is played across a 5×4 grid of reels with 40 pay lines. Bets start from just £0.20 per spin and reach a maximum of £100 per spin. So, the game has something for everyone from the penny slots players right through to the high rollers. It’s a high volatility game with a unique feature called the lucky treasure bag feature which gives you the chance to win instant cash prizes, multipliers and retriggers. The maximum win in the game is 15,000x your stake which translates to £1.5 million if you’re betting the maximum.
Graphics and Theme
The graphics are incredibly vibrant and colourful. They feature a scene from a port somewhere in Caribbean waters. The foreground of your screen is the emerald green waters which host at least two docked pirates’ ships. You can see the waves moving and knocking into the ships, creating a dynamic effect that will keep you entertained and focused. In the background, you can see a mountainous tropical island with the sun setting over it, and the blue sky is slowly fading away. The reels are encased with a border made from the wood of a ship, and the symbols are made up of items you would expect a pirate to have.
The soundtrack is calm with the sound of gently crashing waves coming from your speakers until you hit spin. The music then intensifies and builds suspense with violin noises and dramatic drums. It sounds like it’s been inspired from a battle scene from Pirates of the Caribbean. The reels spin silently but come to a stop one by one with a thudding noise. Winning combinations are acknowledged with classic arcade winning noises.
Pirate Gold Deluxe symbols
The low paying symbols in the game are made up of a bronze coin, a silver coin, a gold coin, a pirate hook and a telescope. The telescope is the most valuable and is worth a maximum of £500 or 5x your stake for five of a kind. The high paying symbols include a map, a pirate ship, a parrot, a female pirate and a male pirate. Both pirates are worth a maximum of £1250 or 12.5x your stake for five of a kind.
There is also a wild symbol that can be substituted for any symbol except the money symbols. It can only land on reels two, three, four and five.
The money symbol will land on your screen with a predetermined cash value that’s either chosen randomly or features the value of one of the minor or major progressive jackpots.
Lucky treasure bag feature
To trigger this feature, you will need to land eight money bag symbols on the reels simultaneously. When the round begins, all non-money bag symbols will fade away, and the reels will now only show money bags, retrigger symbols, multiplier symbols, and empty reel positions.
During this round, there are an additional two money bag symbols present. The first is a purple money bag which takes the value of all the triggering money bags combined. The second is a red money bag which takes the value of all of the money bags combined that are present when it lands.
You start the feature with three re-spins. All the money bags that land on your screen will stay there until the end of the round. Every time you land a money bag symbol, the re-spins will reset to three, and you can go again. The game will end when your re-spins runout or the entire screen is filled with money bags. Please note that the multiplier symbols will accumulate their values and be applied to the total winnings made at the end of the round.
Game How to Play
The Pirate Gold Deluxe gameplay is simple and easy to follow. You first need to decide on your betting value which can be anywhere between £0.20 per spin and £100 per spin. Then you can either hit spin manually or use the auto spin feature to play up to 1000 spins for you. The game is played across a 5×4 set of reels with 40 pay lines. You unlock cash prizes when you land three or more identical symbols on a winning pay line. However, the real money can be made when you trigger the lucky treasure bag feature by landing eight money bags simultaneously. It’s in this bonus feature that you can win the maximum payout of 15,000x your stake. There are also Minor, Major and Grand jackpot prizes worth £5000, £20,000 and £100,000 that can be won on any spin.
