The Pirate Gold Deluxe slot game can be found at casinos offering Pragmatic Play software. Pragmatic Play are one of the newer slots game developers on the market but their products are polished and professional in feel and operation. As a standard Pragmatic Play do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game help file. For a provider that are not currently licensed within the UK market and therefore are under no obligation to publish these figures this is a significantly progressive move. The House Edge for Pirate Gold Deluxe is 3.52%.
Pirate Gold Deluxe is a 5 reel game that is 4 symbols high. The game uses 40 standard paylines, playing from left to right.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Treasure Chest”, substituting for all symbols other than Money symbols. The Wild symbol is only available on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.
Money Symbol – The money symbols are “Loot Bags”. They come with numbers written on them and are active on all reels in the game. 8 “Loot Bags” on a single spin will trigger the “Lucky Treasure Bag” feature.
Lucky Treasure Bag – When this feature begins all symbols that are not “Loot Bags” will disappear, leaving behind only the “Loot Bags” responsible for triggering the feature. The normal reels are then replaced with special reels that only contain “Loot Bags”, retrigger symbols, multiplier symbols and empty spaces. You begin this feature with 3 re-spins, which will reset to 3 every time a new “Loot Bag” symbol appears on the reels. All “Loot Bag” symbols will remain in place for the duration of the re-spins.
Purple Loot Bags – When a Purple Loot Bag lands it will take on the entire value of all the initial triggering symbols.
Red Loot Bags – When a Red Loot Bag lands it will take on the entre value of all other loot bags on the reels at that time.
During the Lucky Treasure feature there are multiplier symbols that are “Green Loot Bags” that come with a multiplier number written on them. This will total either x2, x3 or x5. These symbols add up and create a multiplier total which will be multiplied by your total win.
Closed Treasure Chest – The “Closed Treasure Chest” symbol will re-trigger the “Lucky Treasure Bag” feature exactly as it started in the first place, with the same symbols and the 3 re-spins.
When the Lucky Treasure feature is complete, all the “Loot Bag” symbols will be added together and multiplied by the total multiplier to create a cash win.
Buy Now – You can pay to play the feature whenever you want to, although doing so will come at a cost of 100x the bet.
Pirate Gold Deluxe looks as good as the original, which is hardly surprising given the fact it’s almost all the same symbols. The game has some excellent features, with the main difference between this and the original being that the Free Spins have gone and that Jackpot is bigger and better. The house edge is a tiny bit higher, but not by much and you have a buy now feature that you didn’t have before.
