The Jolly Roger 2 game is made up of 5 reels, each one 3 symbols high. The slot uses traditional paylines, with 30 in total playing from left to right.
Wild – The “Jolly Roger” symbol is Wild, which means it will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters.
Scatter – The Scatter symbol is the “Pirate”. 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels will trigger the Bonus Quest feature.
Compass – The Compass symbol will award a multiplier on the spin it lands on worth 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x or 10x the bet.

Bottle of Rum Free Spin – If you trigger this feature you will be given one spin and once it has finished you can click on Rum Bottles that sit beneath the reels. If there is Rum in the bottle you will see the reel fully stacked with Wilds. If there is no Rum you will be given no more guesses.
Battle Free Spins – This feature works by having you battle other pirates. You begin the feature with 3 lives. You earn a life for each battle won (up to a maximum of 3 lives) and lose a life for every battle lost. You will always win against Merchant ships and if you do win your battle you will be given another spin and the Pirates victory is awarded.
During Battles, coins appear in a 3×3 grid. Whoever has the highest amount of coins will win the Battle. If you win you gain a life and a reward (all of which I will explain below). If you lose you will lose one of your 3 lives:
