When it comes to pirates, there are not many of us that are not favorites of them, at least in the movies and games, of course. Well, here we have a sequence by Play’n GO called Jolly Roger 2, which is a game that offers us 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 paylines in total. That would be one of the fewer connections with the old game.
The pirate theme is widely used on the slot market, but our provider really spiced things up and ensured for us quite a few pleasant surprises. The graphics of the game are really done to perfection, and you will truly get to experience the pirate life with this release.
The background of the game shows us the deep seas with a lot of battleships around, so watch your steps. The grid itself is set on the front of the boat and it is quite transparent so you can see almost clearly what is happening behind it. The soundtrack works really well with the theme, and surely gives you the feeling of heading out with the pirates to plunder and conquer.
When it comes to the symbols, there are of course the low paid ones, represented by the card royals. There are also the high paid symbols shown as a pirate ring, pirate crucifix, diamonds, and a treasure chest. There is also a wild symbol represented by the classical pirate flag with a skull and crossed bones on it. The scatter symbol is reserved for Jolly Roger himself.
The RTP of the game is at 96.20% which is well over the average, and that is surely one more reason to try the game. The betting range is nice and the minimum bet is set at 0.20, and the maximum is set at 100 coins per spin. The maximum payout of the game is set at 5000 times the stake.
When it comes to the features, the provider really stood up and they managed to make their game really ahead of their competitions. The first feature to mention will be the Compass feature. This one is triggered randomly, and it will provide you with multipliers from 2x to 10x.
There is also a Bonus Quest, which is the highlight of the game. This feature is triggered when you land three scatter symbols, after which you automatically get a chance to choose from 12 rolled maps. The first map that you uncover three times will be your reward. You can choose from the Instant Cash Prize, Bottle of Rum, Treasure Hunt, and Battle Spins whichever one you want.
The Instant Cash Prize will reward you with an instant win between 2x and 20x times your share. The Bottle of Rum is a feature that rewards you with one free spin, and where you can choose from five bottles underneath the reels. When you choose the right one that reel will get covered with wilds. Up to 4 wild reels are possible during that one free spin.
Treasure Hunt is a feature where you will get 10 free spins, and the key is to get your boat that you now can see under the grid to the x spot. The boat will move every time you land a map symbol. The Battle Spins is one open-ended feature where you will get three extra lives which mean many free spins. The battle is happening using pirate and privateer coins, and who gets more coins on the board is the winner. If you defeat privateer, you will get one free spin with the Compass feature, and one whole reel stacked with wilds.
You will also get an Opponents Victory reward, and there are three types of them. In the British version, all high paid symbols are turned into treasure chests. In the Portuguese version up to 2 symbols turn up into wilds. There is also a Dutch version where three adjacent reels land on the grid together and they uncover the same symbols.
