Jolly Roger 2 Slot Review – Play’n Go

Here comes number 30 Out Of 52 confirmed by the slot provider Play’n Go, we are nearly 8 months into the year and already 30 slots to choose from. The latest game I reviewed is ‘Diamond Vortex‘, which shows off the success of Play’n Go’s grid layout games like ‘Honey Rush’. But today we have a rerelease/sequel of a much older game, which has been forgotten about and been granted a second chance in these modern times. This slot is titled ‘Jolly Roger 2‘, set to release 27th August across all sites.

Jolly Roger 2 Slot Review  Play'n Go casino Visuals Art Work Base Game

The original Jolly Roger was released 8 years ago in 2012, with colourful visuals and simplified artwork. Now the studio has reworked this old school release, with new modern visuals and updated statistics. Both stick with the same pirate theme, which is a not so saturated theme within the casino industry. The background is the high seas with pirate ships sailing in the winds. The reel set is set onboard one of these ships, with a detailed wooden border. The visuals within this new rerelease are beautifully crafted and very detailed.

This slot has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 20 set pay lines. Jolly Roger is a medium variance game with a set RTP of 96.2% and max win capped at 5,000x. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.
