Somehow it seems as if we haven’t heard much from Pragmatic Play lately. While in the past, this Rumanian games developer released new slots regularly, their production seems to have slowed down a bit.

It has been a while, so we were happy to see that Pragmatic Play released a new slot called Pirate Gold

Maybe they were too busy developing and releasing the Pragmatic Play Live Casino?

Pirate Gold is a “pirate” video slot with 40 paylines and two exciting bonus features.

However, what makes Pirate Gold stand out from the crowd is its sky-high potential: it is possible to win more than 32,000 x the total bet in this game.

See, that is how you get our attention in a wink.


How does the Pirate Gold video slot work?

Pirate Gold has a jolly pirate theme and is set in the home port of the plundering and ferocious seafaring scoundrels.

Fortunately, the pirates have time to relax and try their luck at the Pirate Gold slot, too. What could be more fun than searching for treasures during the day, beating a gang of other pirates and then in the evening unwinding a bit with an online slot?

The game has 5 reels with 4 rows of symbols and 40 fixed paylines. You play from $€ 0.40 per spin, and that can reach up to $€ 200 per spin.

Pirate Gold has a very high variance, and the theoretical payout rate is 96.50%. So it seems to be an excellent slot for players who are up for some risk in their game.

Symbols and payouts

The value of the symbols is relatively low at Pirate Gold.

For example, the female and male pirates award you the most, but they are worth merely 12.50 x the total bet for 5-of-a-kind.

The parrot, binoculars, pirate ship and treasure card are the medium-value symbols that earn you between 5 x and 7.5 x the bet if you spin 5 of the same symbols on an active payline.

The low-value symbols consist of a pirate hook and three types of coins, and they are pure screen fillers: those symbols award you a minimum of 1.25 x and a maximum of 1.87 x the total bet for 5-of-a-kind.


Free spins bonus

3 scattered bonus symbols on the middle reels give you 10 free spins.

These free spins can be retriggered unlimitedly. But we’re not finished yet: wilds will replace all pirates on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.

It may sound like a piece of cake, but in reality, it’s still quite challenging to pocket a nice profit during the free spins bonus.

If you’re looking for serious prizes at Pirate Gold, you’ve got to seek salvation in the Lucky Treasure Bag Bonus.

Lucky Treasure Bag Bonus

“Jetzt Geht es Los” is what they would yell in Germany as soon as you spin 8 or more treasure bags.

You have now won the lucrative Lucky Treasure Bag feature.

All winning treasure bags (with sums of money written on them) stay on the reels, and you can use respins to try and spin extra money pouches onto the remaining empty cells.

You always get 3 respins to start with. But each time you spin a prize, the counter is reset to 3 again. Wolf Gold slot players know precisely how this works.

You can earn even more, though: there are three jackpots (win up to 1,000 x the bet), and you can spin multipliers.

Especially the multipliers are exciting. They reach up to 5 x, and it is possible to spin more than 1. Then, things can spiral out of hand very fast (in an extremely positive way)!

Our verdict on the Pirate Gold slot

Pirate Gold is a bit of a tricky slot. While at first glance you might think the free spins bonus is where the money is at, you could not be more wrong. The Lucky Treasure Bag Bonus can provide the treasures: up to an incredible 32,270 times the total stake.

Even though this slot can be a real money sucker, it is also very polished and gratifying, as many Pragmatic Slots are.
