Ghost Pirates Slots

Ghost-PiratesGhost Pirates is, as you would expect, a pirate themed slot machine. The better news is that its developer is Net Entertainment and that this is one of their newer games, so you can expect spectacular graphics and plenty of features to enjoy as you play it. The pirate theme has been done to death already, but I will never complain about this developer approaching a common theme, as they usually do it better than the competition. You’re getting skeletons and all kinds of pirate themed graphics here, all of them of the highest quality.

Not only is this a gorgeous game, it’s also one that tries to make things interesting for the player, relying on 243 ways to win that are placed on the same 5 reels that a regular slot would have. It awards up to $3,750 in prizes, but there are a lot more chances for them to be won, plus you get the assistance of various features as well. Among them, I found the wild symbol, the scatter and some free spins.

Features of Ghost Pirates

Though graphics wise it’s a great slot, when it comes to features it offers everything you could want to, but doesn’t go overboard. You’re not going to discover never before seen features, but you are going to take advantage of wild symbols, scatters, multipliers and the usual free spins.

The Ways to Win system is one of the things that makes this game a bit more special than the average. It involves the use of up to 243 ways to win, though you can also select fewer. The minimum you can play with is 3 ways to win, meaning the middle row of the slot plus the 1st reel. As you can see in the ways to wins screenshot, there are five different configurations of active positions in the game, which will get you 3, 9, 27, 81 or 243 ways to win.


The wild is the one that is most basic, a simple substitution capable symbol that applies to any regular icon, even the scatter symbols by the looks of it. It has the Jolly Rogers symbol representing it and it’s available no matter how many ways to win you have selected.

The presence of the Treasure Chest scatter will mean prizes for you, in case you get 3+ symbols, but it brings along free spins as well. The prizes are the same, no matter how many ways to win are activated, between 2x and 50x the wager being awarded. A small downside is the requirement for the scatter symbols to appear starting from the leftmost reel and in consecutive order.

Free Games Feature

With 243 ways to win active, the scattered Treasure Chests will get you 15 to 25 free spins. With fewer ways to win used, you get 10 to 20 free spins out of the game. All their prizes benefit from 3x multipliers.


Betting options and jackpots

You are required to use the equivalent of 25 coins if you want to activate all the ways to win, but you can get away with activating only 3 ways to win, which needs 1 coin. You can still use the Bet Level option to increase the wager size, with up to 5 coins selected for each virtual payline. The biggest wager consists of 125 coins, total value being $62.50.

The Ghost Pirates best prize is worth 1,500x what the line bet was, with 7,500 coins up for grabs for the right wager sizes. Cash wise, it only means $3,750.

Design and symbols

Pirate themed slot machines can be cool enough in most cases, but in this case it goes beyond what you would expect, making it good enough to be in a high quality Pixar animation movie. There is an astounding amount of detail and work put into every single symbol, most of them being related to ugly pirates, sunken ships and treasures. The background picture is that of a pirate ship populated with ghost pirates, with walking skeletons being the ones doing the pirating. You’re not going to find any beautiful maidens in this game, but you’re going to have a lot of fun anyway.


Symbols: Jolly Roger Wild (wild), Treasure Chest (scatter, 50x the bet), Peggy Rotten (1,500x), One-Eyed Ed (1,000x), Mad Monkey (500x), Polly Parrot (400x), Flint Pistols (200x), Pirate Pendant (150x), Treasure Map (100x), Bottle of Rum (100x), Cannon (80x) and Ship’s Anchor (80x).


Is It Worth Playing?

If you want to check out one of the best looking pirate slot machines available anywhere, then Ghost Pirates should be the obvious choice. The ways to win system is another advantage you have here, especially since you’re not forced to select all of them with your bets.

Ghost Pirates can be found at any Net Entertainment casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
