The Jolly Roger is the traditional English name for flags that are flown to identify pirate ships. These usually feature some form of skull and crossbones or skull and crossed cutlasses and come in black and white. While this game is called Jolly Roger’s Jackpot and does utilise the pirate theme, it is named after the man himself rather than the flag. It builds heavily on the general theme and provides a game about pirates who have come ashore to stash their treasure.

The layout of the slot is made up of five reels and three rows and this is joined by 50 pay lines which are customisable. You’re also able to adjust the value of your wager easily enough. You just need to select a coin value between 1p and 25p and then bring between one and five of these into play per active line. This means that Jolly Roger’s Jackpot allows you to place a maximum overall bet of £62.50 per spin.

The customisation features are great, but how does the game do on the visual side of things? Well, Jolly Roger’s Jackpot boasts some cutting edge graphics, with the background nicely depicting the island that the pirates call home. Then, upon the five the symbols of the gun, the skull and crossbones, and then the bottle of rum start off the symbols. A wooden treasure chest is also present as a symbol, which can pay out up to 100x your bet. You’ll also see a symbol of a cannon, a pair of cutlasses and an anchor. Yet it’s the sexton that operates as the highest paying addition, rewarding players with up to 800x their bet.

Special Features

Pirate Captain

As well as all of the basic symbols mentioned before, the game contains a jackpot symbol which is that of the pirate captain himself. He is able to provide the largest pay-out of all symbols, and you need to ensure that at least three of him come into view across a pay line.

Should you manage to form a win consisting of five of this one, then you’ll see your stake multiplied by a total of 5,000x.

Big Pirate

The butch pirate wearing a bandana is the game’s wild addition. Therefore, wherever this one comes into view it will substitute for all of the other aforementioned symbols to help with creating winning combinations.

Not only that, but if it’s possible to create extra wins on other rows and lines, the wild symbol will expand to cover the entirety of the reel that it appears on. In Jolly Roger’s Jackpot, the wild is only able to appear on reels one, three and five.

Pirate Ship

If you’re interested in playing through a bonus round, then make sure that you’re on the lookout for the pirate ship with the Jolly Roger flag on it that triggers it.

Spinning three or more of the bonus symbol into view will activate the slot’s bonus round, and they can appear anywhere on the screen for this to happen. Playing the bonus round gives you the chance to significantly boost your win balance.

Female Pirate

Of course, a pirate ship is a place for equality, so female pirates are also a feature, and the female pirate in Jolly Roger’s Jackpot acts as its free spins scatter symbol. You’ll need to spin three or more of this one into view in any position to activate the free spins round.

You’ll get 10 of these for the appearance of three scatters, while 20 are handed over for four scatters. On the other hand, if you manage to spin five free spins scatter symbols into view you’ll be the recipient of 50 free spins. During this round, all of the winning combinations that you form will receive a triple multiplier.
