Pirate Golden Age Review
Everyone dreams of going on a pirate adventure on the open seas to chart unexplored territories and unlock the juiciest booty. Pragmatic Play is giving players the chance to experience this with Pirate Golden Age.
Playing on 5-reels with 20 paylines, Pirate Golden Age allows players to take on the role of a pirate to uncover treasures in the form of free spins and multipliers. So join in with the rapscallion crew and embark on a brand-new adventure in Pirate Golden Age.
Like most Pragmatic Play slots, the overall design of this game is superb. In the distance, there are various mountains as well as mould and trees growing around them. To the right of the reels, there is a giant skull cave which will give you chills as soon as you open up the game.
Closer to the bottom of the screen, players will find themselves on a beach with the ocean hitting the shore and various creatures crawling around. As for the symbols on the reels, there are typical pirate items such as anchors, compasses and scary pirates themselves.
We expected a cheesy jaunty tune throughout but instead, there is an epic score played. This changes the tone of the slot and builds up the intensity of spins throughout.
Sadly, there is nothing complicated or innovative throughout the game. However, this is not a bad thing and this slot definitely appeals to the casual player looking for something easy to pick up and play.
All of the menu buttons can be found at the bottom of the screen with the spin button and bet level at the bottom. Other settings such as the sound and paytable can be found on the left side with a slider menu to adjust the volume.
With most Pragmatic Play slots, you can expect a high volatility level followed by an amazing RTP of over 96%. This slot definitely follows that with a wonderful RTP of 96.49% which is great to see.
Unfortunately, the maximum win for this slot will not shake your core as it's only 3,000x the stake. This is a decent amount to win but will put off high rollers looking for the juiciest booty.
There are many pirate slots out there and others that are more innovative. However, Pirate Golden Age has a charm to it with its simplistic gameplay and incredible design. Any type of slot enthusiast can easily pick up this game and instantly play it.
That's not to say that there aren't some issues that we encountered such as the low maximum win. However, none of the issues was too overwhelming to put you off playing this game. If you are looking for a new crew to join, give Pirate Golden Age a try.
