Ghost Pirates is a spooky online slots game that features ghostly pirates that plunder the seven seas in a haunted ghost ship looking for loot and hidden treasures. The game boasts beautiful graphics with eerie animations that are further enhanced by the ghostly sound effects. The reels display symbols represented by phantom pirates, a treasure chest, a pirate monkey, a parrot, a treasure map, a skull and a variety of other grisly pirate themed items.
Basic Steps to Play Ghost Pirates
Ghost Pirates online slots is simple to play. The bet level from one to five, the amount of winning ways and the coin size is decided upon and selected by pressing on the specific buttons at the bottom of the screen. A max bet feature is available to automatically bet on the most amount of winning ways at the highest level of bets. The spin button starts to spin the reels and so the game unfolds. An auto play feature is available to set a predetermined number of spins so that the spin button does not have to be pressed every time the player wishes to spin.
Ways to Win and Winning Combinations
Ghost Pirates online slots is a five reel slots game that does not have an option to bet on pay lines. Instead there are set amounts of ways to win that can be bet on. The maximum amount of combinations that can be won are 243. Other amounts of ways to win that can be bet on are 3, 9, 27 and 81. There are five levels of bets to choose from which range depending on the number of winning ways that have been chosen.
All winning combinations begin from the far left reel and work their way towards the right. The anchor and cannon symbols are the least paying symbols but they only require two consecutive symbols to produce a win. Information on all the various combinations that can be won and the amounts they pay out are found in the Ghost Pirates pay table. This can be accessed by clicking on the pay table button on the screen.
Ghostly Wilds and Scatter Symbols
The ghostly pirate represents the wild symbol in this online slots game and only appears on the second and fourth reels for players. The wild symbol acts as a substitute for all the other symbols including the scatter symbol and helps to create winning combinations. The Ghost Pirates scatter symbols are portrayed by the treasure chests. Three or more of these symbols appearing in consecutive order, from the furthest left reel to the right, result in activating the free spins bonus round. The scatter symbols do not need to appear on an active pay line in order to trigger the free spins. Up to twenty five free spins can be won depending on the level of bets and the amount of winning ways that have been bet on. If additional three or more scatter symbols appear during the free spin bonus round, more free spins are triggered. This results in an unlimited amount of free spins that can be won.
