Join a band of buccaneers on the hunt for pillaged treasure in Pirate Gold, a five reel, four rows, forty payline slot. If players like treasure hunts, then it is time to embark on this pirate ship and start the high seas sail to go searching for hidden treasures. This ambitious undertaking will take players on an exciting and high variance adventure with powerful winds and sails forward.
The graphics and design in Pirate Gold are done nicely. With a mist-shrouded harbour as the backdrop, players will see ten standard pirate related icons spinning around the wooden reels. They include gold, silver and bronze coins, a telescope, a hook hand, a ship, a treasure map and a parrot. The most lucrative icons are the male and female pirates. Landing five of these on the same payline and players will pocket a prize of x12.5 times their total stake!

Slot features of Pirate Gold
The Wild Treasure Chest icon replaces all the symbols in the game except for the Bonus and Money icons, and this can appear on the second, third, fourth and fifth reels.
The compass is the Bonus icon, and it can appear on the second, third and fourth reels. Players who land three or more of these anywhere on the reels will activate the Free Spins feature, and thus will award players ten spins. During the Free Spins feature, two Pirate icons will transform into Wild symbols.
The Money symbols all have values displayed, and they appear on all the reels. During each spin, the bag will take a random amount from a predefined set or either the minor or major jackpot values. When players hit eight or more money icons, they will activate the Lucky Treasure Bag feature.

Once the feature has been activated, the standard ions will fade, and the Money symbols that activated the feature remain on the reels. The regular reels will be replaced with a unique reel set containing only Money icons, retrigger symbols, multiplier symbols and further empty spaces for new icons to fall.
During the Lucky Treasure Bag feature, multipliers can increase to a random value that can be either an x2, x3 or x5 that is then added to the total multiplier of the round. The Skull-embellished chest icon is the Retrigger symbol that grants a new Treasure Bag round with the Money icons beginning the same way as the initial first round.
Pirate Gold is an extremely volatile slot game that can boast beautiful design, visual and exciting features. Pirate Gold offers players a massive win potential that can reach up to x32,000, and there are also three separate jackpots that can be won. If players can cope with the potentially massive swings, then they won’t find many more entertaining slots than Pirate Gold.
