Shiver me timbers, if it aint a pirate based slot game that nektan have come up with here. Plucky Pirates is a pirate themed slot that has been designed and developed in HTML5 by nektan. The backdrop of a sandy beach and palm tree is to be expected. This is also the case with the symbols, that all have a pirate theme. From chests full of treasure, to pirate ships and the complimentary parrot. But what exactly can you expect when playing this slot game? As it has been primarily developed for mobile users some of the features you may be used are missing. There is no bonus round, just free spins and a wild symbol. I did test plucky pirates on both a mobile and desktop devices. There is no doubt that the mobile device was the winner as it looked a lot smoother. But in truth, it doesn’t really matter what device you chose to play this slot on, it stops becoming very exciting after a short while.
Plucky Pirates is a 5×3 9 line slot. The minimum stake is 0.01p so the minimum bet for 9 lines is just 0.09p. If you’re a slots player on a budget then this represents a good game to play as you don’t need to stake much money to enjoy this one. For those looking to play with bigger stakes the maximum stake per line is £1 which means your total bet will be £9. But with the lack of extra bonus rounds to keep you entertained I’d be surprised if this was one for the high rollers.
The cheeky parrot is the wild symbol. This completes winning lines with everything bar the free spins. To trigger the free spins round you’ll need a minimum of 3 free spin symbols on the board. You’ll get 10, 20 or 40 free spins depending on whether you get 3, 4 or 5 free spins appear. When I played plucky pirates it took forever for me to trigger 10 free spins and then I didn’t exactly win a kings ransom and didn’t find x marks the spot either!
To summarise this plucky pirates slot review. If you’re going to play this one then I’d recommend doing so on your mobile. Its a good game to play on the go or when you have five minutes spare. The lack of bonus features does mean that you won’t be playing it for hours, so if you’re looking for something to kill a bit of time then overall it isn’t a bad option.
