Jolly Roger Review
This is a 5-reeled video slot, 3 rows high with 15 adjustable pay-lines. You can bet from 1 to 5 coins per line with values of 0.01 to 1.00 credits each. This way you can form wagers in the range of 0.01 and £75 per spin when you activate between 1 and all 15 of the pay-lines. Playing with more line gives you more chances for wins.
The 15 pay-lines reward for the left to right formed combinations. Only scatters pay regardless of where they have landed on the reels so long as there are 2 to 5 of them in a spin. The wild symbol has its own payout and doubles are wins it takes part in.
A full screen of diamonds with the help of a wild symbol results in 2,500 times your stake. There is a Treasure Chest Bonus game that you can activate with 3 to 5 Chest Bonus symbols landed on a pay-line. This game can offer you a total win of up to 4,000 times your bet. Collecting 3 Map piece symbols in a spin on a pay-line trigger the Treasure Map Bonus. It rewards with a total of up to 1,200 times your bet per spin.
Jolly Roger is set on a wooden structure and the grid is hanging in its centre. On the white reels, you can see the chest, map, game logo and colourful parrot symbols. There are also cannons, gold pirate coins, rings with jewels, pirates, sailing ships, white diamonds and crossed swords.
Over the grid, you can see part of the sea with a sailing ship in it. The reels make a rolling sound with a melody and other sounds signalising wins. The game menu is on the bottom of the reels. The images are colourful, look good and all in the pirates’ theme.
Jolly Roger Gameplay
The pay-table consists of 4 low-value, 3 premium and 4 special symbols. To score wins you need to match 2 of the premiums or 3 of the low-value to 5 symbols on a pay-line from left to right.
The low-value symbols include two crossed swords with a payout of 0.26, 1 and 5 times your bet for 3, 4 and 5 symbols. The cannon weapon pays 0.26, 1.33 and 6.66 times your stake for 3, 4 and 5. Next is the ship in the water – landing 3, 4 or 5 of it on a pay-line return 0.33, 1.66 and 8.33 times your stake. The most rewarding of the low-value symbols is the pirate – hitting 3, 4 and 5 of it pays 0.33, 2 and 10 times your stake.
The premiums include a golden pirate coin with a value of 0.66, 3.33 and 16.66 times your stake. The ring with the red jewel pays 0.26, 1.33, 6.66 and 33.33 times your bet for 2, 3, 4 and 5 symbols on a line. The most abundantly paying of all symbols is the white diamond. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of it in a spin to win 0.33, 3.33, 16.66 or 83.33 times your stake.
The game logo is the wild symbol and it substitutes for all others except the scatter, map and chest symbols. It has a payout of its own. Landing 2, 3, 4 and 5 wilds in combinations give you a bit less than the white diamond – 0.66, 6.66, 66.66 and 666.66 times your stake. Another added benefit of the wild is that is doubles all wins it takes part in. This boosts your payouts even further.
