The pirate theme in online video slots is extremely popular. It provides for some iconic symbols on the reels and also action in the win animations and bonus games. Therefore every leading software provider offers some pirate themed video slots in its portfolio. This article reviews some such games.

A relatively simple pirate themed slot game titled Goldbeard has been released by Realtime Gaming. The symbols are bright and colourful and somewhat comical. As expected Goldbeard plays a key role. When he appears in winning combinations he brandishes his cutlass. Goldbeard acts as the wild symbol, acts as a multiplier and triggers the free spins bonus round. You will be given up to 24 free spins at tripled payouts. The other thematic symbols in the Goldbeard video slot are gold coin, pirate ship, parrot, cannon and treasure chest.

The Playtech pirate themed slot game selected is Captain’s Treasure Pro. It is a revamped version of an older but popular slot game Captain’s Treasure. Captain’s Treasure Pro introduces symbols crafted in 3D graphics. It also has background audio of sounds of the sea and the ship’s wheel creaking. The symbols are the usual ones like the pirate captain, treasure chest, parrot, ship and cannon but the win animations are awesome and make the experience realistic. For example the ship rocks and rolls on the seas and the cannon fires and recoils. Captain’s Treasure Pro also incorporates the Playtech mystery scatter symbol in the free spins.

The best pirate themed slot game is Buccaneer’s Bounty from the software provider Cryptologic. One thing that is immediately different in this slot game is that the leader of the pack is a female. The symbols have been crafted in 3D. But more than this, Buccaneer’s Bounty unleashes the full impact of animations technology. When two or more pirate ship symbols appear on the reels, the ship’s cannons fire. The entire screen vibrates with the shock and the cannonball leaves black holes. The bonus game on the second screen is also highly animated. You can choose from two options titled Island Defender or Pillaging Pirate. Each game has exciting gaming features as well. For example, in Island Defender a fleet of pirate ships attack the island. You are allowed 10 cannon shots to bring down as many ships as you can. The animated graphics of the ships being hit and keeling over are take you to the scene of the action itself.
