If you’re a big fan of the franchise, and many people are, Pirates of the Caribbean is back on the big screen this summer with the launch of Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge (also known as Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales).
Watch a trailer for the film below.
The new film not only sees the return of Johnny Depp as the ever-popular Jack Sparrow, but also plenty of familiar faces are returning for what might be the swansong for the swashbuckling franchise.
Whilst millions will flock to the cinema to see Captain Jack Sparrow’s latest adventure, as he once again tries to cheat death – this time at the hands of a pirate stuck in the Devil’s Triangle, Captain Salazar – pirate-themed slots continue to be popular in the online casino world.
As is often the case when a big movie comes to town, expect slot lovers across the net to be playing a whole host of swashbuckling, landlubber, pirate-themed slots over the month. We’re a step ahead, though, and have decided to look at some of the better ones out there.
Arguably the finest pirate-themed slot on the net, BetSoft Gaming’s Barbary Coast contains elements that any Pirates of the Caribbean fan would easily recognise in the slot, all designed with top-notch 3D graphics.
The five-reel, 30-line slot contains cannon wilds which shoot out onto other reels, Parrot free spins, a click me bonus, a grog drinking gamble feature, and a wonderful swashbuckling duel with Blackbeard, just in case the slot needed another bonus feature for good measure.
This can be played at Mr Green casino, Bet365 casino and LeoVegas among others.
Chests of Plenty
Ash Gaming (now owned by Playtech) are the developers of this colourful and creative Chests of Plenty slot.
This is a very basic five-reel, 20-line video slot, and one which is so basic it should appeal to all players, experienced or amateur. There is a massive 10,000-coin non-progressive jackpot in Chests of Plenty. Special features include Treasure Island trail bonus, pirate wilds, and a decent progressive jackpot, to provide you with additional booty if the non-progressive haul wasn’t enough swag for you.
Ghost Pirates is about as Pirates of the Caribbean as you’re going to get.
This is a slot machine which contains skulls and crossbones, double sword and flintlocks, monkeys and parrots straight from the film, and even its logo bears a striking resemblance to the Disney franchise.
Net Entertainment’s Ghost Pirates captures the very essence of the first film in the franchise – The Curse of the Black Pearl – and offers up an RTP rate of 96.90%, which makes it very appealing.
There are 243 paylines for players to win on, a host of free spins, and your typical NetEnt style gameplay to enjoy. Given that the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is owned by Disney (and we all know how Disney feels about slots and gambling in general) NetEnt’s Ghost Pirates is about as close to the real deal as you are going to get.
Other top pirate-themed slots
Of course, there are other top pirate-themed slots out there on the net, too. WMS Gaming’s Red Flag Fleet takes pirate-themed slots in a new direction, with its Asian theme and its impressive 2-3-4-5-6-7 reel structure.
Amaya Gaming’s Blackbeard’s Gold is a bit tricky to get hold of, but its Galleon feature can offer up plenty of spins, wild reels and multiplier.
Then there is always Treasure Island. Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel, this quirky Quickspin game offers 40 lines, creative characters you will recognise, and has a thoroughly impressive 97.07% RTP rate to boast about.
If you’re off to see the movie and feel like sailing the Seven Seas with a pirate-themed slot, any of these games can easily fill up your purses with pieces of eight and booty galore.
