Ghost Pirates Slot NetEnt

Ghost Pirates is a revolutionary video slot from NetEnt. With compelling graphics and a dark, m­yst­erious atmosphere, this free version of Ghost Pirates gives players a truly immersive gaming­ ­exp­eri­ence. In addition, players won't have to worry about near hits. The slot allows players to win 243 ways, rather than using set paylines. As long as symbols are in succession from left to right at any position on the reel, the payline wins. Ghost Pirates simply gives slot lovers something different to try.

To set your bet, first choose your coin value in the bottom-left. Players may select any value from just €0.01 up to €0.50 per reel. Since Ghost Pirates does not use a conventional payline system, players are able to get a massive amount of ways for significantly less. Once you've selected your coin amount, choose how many full reels to play (the Bet Level). The paytable illustrates how many ways each Bet Level offers players to win.

Spin either by using the green circle button with arrows, or by using the Max Bet button to spin all five reels at the selected coin amount. As anchors, legendary pirates, and mystical treasures fill the reels, you can expect to see a massive number of wins compared to most other slots. Ghost Pirate­s's­ ­adv­ent­urous theme and unique set-up make it a slot worth trying out.

The attention to detail this game is fantastic and makes the graphics look beautifully sharp and crisp - on my tablet the effect is truly stunning. I like the eery background sounds too which definitely add to the ghostly feel. The games logo does look attractive though I get the feeling it might possibly have been "inspired" by a certain popular pirate themed movie series!

It's good that the presentation is so slick because Ghost Pirates doesn't have a great many surprises during play. Three to five scatters starts a typical free spins round, with extra spins for four or five scatters (the exact number varies depending on the number of ways activated) and all wins during free spins receive a 3x multiplier. Most of the paytable wins remain the same regardless of the number of ways played but there are some small differences at the very bottom end of the table.


Payouts are fairly typical for a 243 ways game but may seem a little low if you are new to this type of slot. I would have liked to have seen a win on the paytable for five scatters or five wilds but NetEnt often don't bother with such things. I don't know why! Microgaming almost always make these two highly unlikely combinations return a prize befitting of their rarity and I can't see any good reason for a game not to offer this. Also, I always feel that 243 ways games work best with stacked wild symbols, afterall that is the only way to win on a large number of ways simultaneously, but those are not offered here.

The spin sound effect doesn't quite fit with the game which might sound like a minor thing but whilst the effects are enabled you will be hearing it every couple of seconds so I do think it worthy of a mention.

Pretty much every 243 ways game I can ever remember having played has a fixed minimum bet size, usually between 0.25 and 0.50 per spin, so I was both intrigued and confused to see the option in Ghost Pirates allowing selection of various numbers of active ways. My guess is that in the early days of ways-to-win games some players found the concept difficult to understand or didn't like being restricted as to how many lines they wished to play so NetEnt tried to come up with a compromise. It's a nice idea but does make the game quite difficult to understand and I recommend just playing the full 243 ways - you may well get a dramatically reduced RTP if you do not.

I've said quite a few negative things about Ghost Pirates which is a shame because I do feel positive about the game overall - it's just that there is so little original or unique here, it really is a very standard slot game. It looks great and is enjoyable to play, plus I've had reasonable luck playing the game with a couple of hugely profitable sessions. I guess what all the negative points say is that it really could have been a lot better with a few simple tweaks and I really wish NetEnt would pay more attention to what is great about their competitors games and implement those features themselves, they definitely have the potential to be the best.

Who would like to meet 'pirates' ? I say: 'I do'! I am not saying these pirates are attractive to me but there is so much going on around these 'guys' that person like me would be happy to spend 24 hours and see if they are really so 'serious' as I heard and are they really wild spirits.I can't tell if NetEnt developers were inspired by 'The Ghost Pirates' novel by W.H.Hodgson, first published in 1909. But pirates theme and idea is very interesting in my opinion or according 'my books and papers'.  There is no violence nor robbery at sea in this 5-reels, 243- paylines video slot.

I have played this slot occasional, last year after seeing screenshots on the AskGamblers forum and like it happens, I was curious and wanted to check it out. This slot comes with superb graphics and very nice symbols. Theme, background and soundtrack are too beautiful. Wild symbol substitute for all symbols and nothing more to be said about wild symbol. Wining combinations with scatter are doubled and pay x2 the total bet.Free Spins bonus round is triggered when you collect 3 scatters and all wins during free spins are x3 multiplier (tripled). 3-scatter – 15 FreeSpins; 4 – 20 FreeSpins and 5 – 25 FreeSpins. Peggy Rotten is most valuable symbol and pay 1500 coins for collecting 5 of them. One-eyed Ed pays 1000 coins; Mad Monkey 500 coins and last one is Polly with 400 coins award for collecting 5 of a kind.

Sadly to say, but this paytable looks poor. I don't know neither what and how to win 'something' in this game. Not in the base game.. maybe FreeSpins bonus round .. and re-triggering FreeSpins. No features in this game that would make this game truly tasty and following fantastic theme . I am not interested in future sessions but you never know. I expected 'generous' paytable and I am a bit disappointed.

Ghosts-themed games can be fun to play. Pirates-themed games are also always fun to play. Combine the two and you get Ghost Pirates to play. Does it gives double the fun to play? Gees, maybe, maybe not, but if you haven't played it, there's no way of finding out, is there? You can take my word for it, or you can take other players word for it, but nothing beats your own experience on the game! For me, I found Ghost Pirates fun to play, entertaining, keeps you going for quite a while, until or unless you hit those inevitable dry runs. You can't escape them, you can't avoid them, but you can certainly run away from them! Hahaha.

Ghost Pirates was one of those rare beautifully created games from NetEnt in those days. The icons are all beautifully presented with rich details and colour. The scenarios and background scenes are no less well treated and presented too. A really cool game to look at, to admire, and best of all, a cool game to play, if you don't expect too much out of it! All games have predesignated aspects put into them. Some can pay really huge, but can eat you monstrously too. Some can give you lots of yo-yo fun, without tearing a big hole in your wallet, but there are also some games which can never take off the ground - these are the unsuccessful games which every games provider do faced at one time or another. But Ghost Pirates certainly isn't one of this!

Even though the Wild symbol, the Pirate, doesn't pay for itself, doesn't double any wins, doesn't come stacked or expanded, doesn't move about or appear anywhere randomly, it does substitute for ALL other symbols, which is at least one good thing going for it. So it makes getting 5-of-a-kinds and 5 scatters so much easier! In fact, Ghost Pirates is one of the rare games that I have actually won 5 scatters, but, sadly enough, those 5 scatters did not pay as good as in other games. What a blardy waste of a 5 scatters win!

The free spins game, activated by the usual 3 or more scatter symbols, can come slightly more easily than other games, simply because of the Wild's substitution capability. This was how I won that 5 scatters anyway, with 2 Wilds substituting for the scatter. In spite of that, the free spins game that followed, including getting one retrigger of 15 more free spins, paid out a miserably low amount of 147x my total bet, that's including the 5-scatters win amount! That was a big disappointment for me, because I could have won at least 500x my total bet on any other game! So, in this sense, Ghost Pirates cannot pay out really huge amounts, but it does provide you with lots of playing fun and playing time.


Without being too repetitive, the Wild symbol doesn't do anything more other than to substitute for all symbols, there's a lack of huge win possibilities in the game, and the low paytable makes everything else no better. Ghost Pirates could certainly be a big hit with a better paytable, but that's just how some things are. Some made it, some didn't. For me, Ghost Pirates fell short of it!
