Ice Pirates Slot Is an Original Pirates Game
Ice Pirates slot is a new and interesting view of the standard Pirate theme. This slot game by Endorphina has the pirates sailing over the frozen Arctic sea. The background is full of ice floes and frozen wastes, with snow covered mountains and plains. As a player, you stand on the front deck of the pirate ship, looking over at the sea under a night sky filled with stars. Blue and white are the colours used for the backdrop, as the ships sails on between the icebergs. Occasionally a fish leaps out of the water, and freezes instantly. The decks are made of wood and covered in frost. The only sounds come from the creaking ship and a few sea gulls. Endorphina has created a great atmosphere for this game.
Ice Pirates slot has five reels and ten pay lines, and twelve basic symbols. The standard playing cards from ten through to the ace, looking like they were chopped out of ice blocks, form the lowest value symbols. Then comes the red haired Pirate Girl and the Pirate Penguin, and the Polar Bear. After them in value will come two members of the Pirate crew.
Two Special Symbols
The last two symbols are special. The most valuable symbol is the Pirate Captain, and four of them appearing on the reels will give you the game’s jackpot. The Captain is also the Wild in Ice Pirates slot, and can replace any other symbol in the game to complete winning combinations, except for the Scatter. If you land three or four of the Wild symbols you could win up to one thousand coins.
The Skull with an orange cap and scarf is the Scatter symbol, and three or four of them appearing anywhere on the reels will give you a cash prize, and also unlock the Free spins bonus round. You will be given twelve free spins at once.
The last reel is very important to players of the Ice Pirates slot. There are no symbols on this reel, but it contains different multipliers instead. There are bottles and flasks with a tag attached to them to show which multiplier they give. You will see a two times multiplier, a three times or a five times multiplier on the tags. Any winning combination will have a multiplier at the end of its pay line, and the wins will be multiplied accordingly. You have to be a bit careful, however, as some of the multipliers are frozen solid and can’t be used. Another huge benefit in Ice Pirates slot, is that there are two extra multipliers introduced during the free spins bonus round. You could be awarded a multiplier of ten or twenty times on a particularly valuable symbol combination.
Take the Risk Feature
After any win in Ice Pirates slot, two buttons will appear. One will say Take the Win, and if you press this you can collect your winnings. The other button says Take the Risk, and if you press this button you will be taken to another screen so you can try the Gamble feature. Here you are given one card, and four more facing down. You choose one of the four cards. If the chosen card is higher than the card shown, your winnings will be doubled. If the dealer has a card higher in value than the one you chose, you lose and will be taken back to the main game. All winnings can be collected after each winning Gamble round.
