In terms of visuals, the studio clearly gave it their all, offering animated characters, a ton of special effects, and exceptional attention to detail. A ship can be seen bopping lazily on ocean currents in the background, while each win is marked with an explosion of coins, and friendly, pirate themed skeleton.
All in all, it is the swashbuckling adventure that players were hoping for, neatly wrapped up in a real money slot.
Taking a closer look, the 5 reel Pirate Gold Deluxe is actually a reworking of a previous release from the studio. Though, more than enough has been added and changed to justify a new release.
As far as the basics are concerned, 40 paylines act as the basis of gameplay, with a maximum payout of 1,000x the original wager keeping excitement levels high. The same interesting pirate characters from the original populate the reels, offering up the biggest base game payouts.
However, it is the bonus game where most sea scoundrels will be grabbing the biggest payouts. First, however, at least 8 Money Bag symbols will have to be gathered, which triggers a total of 3 Free Spins in the bonus round. Not as many Free Spins as seen in some other slots, but in Pirate Gold Deluxe each spin has an above average payout potential.
During the bonus game, the grid will be populated with bags of cash. Some of the bags hold a monetary value, while others appear as multipliers. Needless to say, the payout potential is nothing short of impressive.
More impressive is that the Free Spins can be retriggered, potentially drawing out the cash amassing sequence for some time. Plus, for any slots player that manages to get a bag of cash in every reel position, a jackpot amount is awarded.
Vice-president of Pragmatic Play, Lena Yasir, shared a quick thought on then new title. She explained that the company was all about keeping its portfolio fresh, and that included refining slots, giving them new life, and releasing them for a second wind in the industry.
Pirate Gold Deluxe is out now, and sea dogs are already taking to the seas in search of loot.
