Overall, Pirates Party is a solid NetEnt slot that should appeal to lots of different players. While we loved its swashbuckling pirate theme, the base game was relatively uninspiring. On top of that, the small 3,046x max win is not going to appeal to high rollers, considering the £20 max bet. To make up for its shortcomings, Pirates Party has interesting free spins, expanding wilds, and multiplier bonus rounds. Whether it is spinning a prize wheel or boosting payouts on free spins, these features are enough to hold attention for short spin sessions.

Pirates Party Slot Paytable & Symbols

Here's a guide to all the paying symbols in Pirates Party. 10 paying symbols can create wins in the base game. Lower-paying icons are the card symbols 10, J, Q, K, and A. Get five of these on the reels to win between 1x and 3x your bet.

Pirates Party Slot Features

While many NetEnt slots are complex with many features, the Pirates Party slot machine has a more basic approach. The base game has no modifiers aside from a standard Wild symbol and a Bonus symbol for the free spins round.

Wild Symbols

The skull Wild symbol replaces any other symbol – aside from the Scatter/bonus symbols – to help form winning lines. That’s all the wild does during the base game, but it becomes much more important during the bonus.

The Pirates Party online slot also has a progress bar connecting to a special Helms of Luck bonus round.

Progress Bar

Let’s start with the progress bar, which fills up when Bonus symbols appear on the reels during the base game. When you fill the progress bar, the Helms of Luck bonus will trigger while the bar resets.

Helms of Luck

When the bonus opens, you get 8 tokens and will see three different wheel helms. Each wheel has segments, and each segment has a prize. To spin the Helm wheels, you need to pay a certain number of tokens:

  • Blue Helm: Spin with one token and claim prizes between 2x and 15x your stake.
  • Green Helm: Spin with three tokens and claim prizes between 5x and 50x your stake and get free spins.
  • Purple Helm: Spin with five tokens and claim prizes between 10x and 100x your stake and get free spins.

Free Spins Bonus

When three Scatter symbols appear on reels one, three, and five, the Pirates Party Free Spins Bonus opens. This round is especially powerful because you can choose the number of free spins and what benefits you get:

  • Five free spins: Comes with up to two Wild symbols covering 2x2 that can land on the reels for the spins
  • 10 free spins: Up to five Wild symbols on a 5x5 grid that can land randomly on a spin
  • 15 free spins: A multiplier of 5x is added to any win from free spins
Our Verdict Free Spins Party should be the name of this game, considering there are three different bonuses. Thanks to the bonus rounds, Pirates Party finally comes alive. A bland base game is worth it for these exciting free spins and bonus features. However, none of them is especially lucrative, so this is not a slot for players looking for massive payouts.

Pirates Party Slot RTP & Volatility

RTP
Variable RTP
Volatility
96.17%
Yes
Medium

While the standard Pirates Party Return to Player (RTP) is 96.17%, this variable RTP slot is also available in RTPs of 94.17%, 93.17%, 91.14%, and 88.14%. While this approach may be confusing for some, our advice is to check the version of Pirates Party your online casino offers before playing.

NetEnt says the Pirates Party slot has medium volatility, but we think it edges more towards high with less frequent but bigger wins. Even so, a hit frequency of 25.74% is good for a win every four spins on average.

Our Verdict While it’s not a badly balanced slot game, Pirates Party does suffer slightly from dead spins. Of course, the variable RTP is something that you need to be aware of when choosing a casino to play the game.

Pirates Party Slot Graphics & Audio

Graphics

In terms of design, this slot seems like a faithful take on the pirate genre. However, there is no party to speak of, and parties do not play into the theme at all. The reels sit on an ocean-facing bar looking out to the blue sea, with rapiers stuck into beams and a pirate ship docked in the bay.

Audio

The soundtrack is bouncy enough and tries to fit with the theme, but we would like to hear more bombastic and swashbuckling music. Small audio effects, such as water sounds or ships creaking, would also be nice to add to the immersion. We get some, such as parrots squawking, but there is definitely room for improvement.

Our Verdict Pirates Party is a middle-of-the-road slot in terms of graphics and audio. Nothing stands out as special, but at the same time, nothing is terrible, either.
