Older slots fans may well link the words ‘pirate radio’ with a ship floating in the North Sea broadcasting Radio Caroline form the 1960s to the 1980s and they would of course be correct to do so. This online slot from Realistic Games takes a more literal view of the term and adds actual pirates into the mix along with headphones, turntables and several bonus features.
Pirate Radio contains twenty paylines spread out over five reels and those reels are placed against an ornate wooden part of a ship’s interior. Pirate paraphernalia lines the walls and floor and the main symbols are three pirate characters along with the standard playing card icons.
Special symbols are a skull and crossbones wild and a treasure chest scatter which triggers some free spins.
Scatter Free Spins
This is where you get to spin the bonus turntables but first you’ll have to land three or more of the treasure chest scatters anywhere on the reels. As you can see from the video below you now have to press the ‘stop’ button on two turntables – one to determine the number of spins and the other to give you a multiplier. The maximum is 25 spins with a 6x multiplier.
When all that’s been sorted you just click the ‘Start’ button and watch as the spins earn you some well-deserved profit. The feature can be re-triggered by landing more scatters while in this round.
Pirate Bonus Round
More free spins are available if you can land five of a kind of any of the pirate characters on an active payline. You’ll now get ten free goes on the pirate bonus reels which should payout for you at a higher rate.
Pirate Radio Online Slot Playing Tips
You’ll have a greater chance of landing the Pirate Bonus free spins with more active paylines so make sure you play all twenty. The scatter free spins can be triggered with any number of paylines so that’s more suitable for low rollers.
This is a nice enough slot with an interesting theme and some detailed graphics. The two bonus features mean there’s something to keep most slots fans amused here and of course there’s a piratey soundtrack to accompany your gameplay.
