New Pirate Themed Online Slots


Pirate themed online slots have always been popular. Many such slot games have been released over the years. But two recent titles are far superior to any in the past. This is not surprising because slot machine software technology is continuously developing.

Loose Cannon is the pirate themed slot game from the online casino software provider Microgaming. The graphics are in 3D graphics and are crafted in considerable detail. The reels are set in the background of a pirate ship. Loose Cannon has the popular 243 ways to win paylines structure. The symbols are the usual found in such video slots and include the pirate captain, the treasure chest, the map, the flagon of rum and the pistols. There are two surprise inclusions. The first is a sexy first mate instead of a blood thirsty male and the second is the monkey as a pet instead of the parrot. The win animations are comically delightful. The free spins feature is triggered by the compass appearing simultaneously on reels 1, 3 and 5. You are awarded 15 free spins in which winning combinations pay both ways. The pirate ship is the wild symbol. When it lands on the middle reel it first creates a wild stack. The ship’s cannon fires and randomly turns additional symbols into wilds.

Pirate Isle from Realtime Gaming begins with an awesome introductory clip. The symbols in this slot game are also in 3D. The high paying symbols are the captain, the cabin wench, the pirate and the victim. The low paying symbols are the parrot, the anchor, the cannon, the ship’s wheel, the ale mug and the map. Then there is a set of keys. The skeleton key is the wild symbol. It appears stacked on the third reel and doubles payouts. The treasure chest awards the free spins. You pick locations on the map of the Pirate Isle to win bonus credits, free spins multipliers and up to 300 free spins.
