Pirate Gold Slot Review – Pragmatic Play

After so many old Play’n Go slot reviews I am now starting on Pragmatic Play releases from the year 2019. Including ‘Safari King‘ and ‘The Dog House‘ as the most recent old game reviews. Today I am reviewing a popular game that already has a sequel. Titled ‘Pirate Gold‘, originally released 18th March 2019.

The Pirate Gold game sequel titled ‘Pirate Gold Deluxe‘, which was released on 12th November 2020. With a popular pirate theme and jackpots up to 1,200x on offer. The slot background is set on the rough seas next to a coastal town. With animations such as the sea waves, clouds in the sunset, and lanterns swinging on either side of the reel set. There is beautiful detail seen within the background artwork, such as the unique art style and colours used.

Pirate Gold has a setup of 5 reels by 4 rows, this includes 40 set pay lines. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.5% and max win capped at 32,270x. You can bet from £0.40 – £200.

Pirate Gold Pay Table & Symbols

This slot has 15 symbols in total which includes, 6 low-paying symbols. These are represented by 3 different coloured/designed coins, hooks, telescopes, and maps. There are also 4 premium symbols represented by ships, parrots, lady pirate, and captain. The highest paying symbol is both the lady pirate and captain paying 12.5x for 5 across a pay line. There is also a treasure chest wild symbol, ship pirate wheel scatter, money symbols, multiplier symbol, and treasure chest retrigger symbol.

Pirate Gold Features

One feature you can benefit from is called ‘Lucky Treasure Bag’, this feature is triggered when 8 or more money symbols land during a spin, all normal symbols will disappear leaving room for money bag, retrigger, multiplier symbols, and empty spaces. You are awarded 3 respins, every time a money bag symbols lands the re-spin counter will reset to 3. This feature will continue until all spins have been used or all spaces have been filled. This feature plays identically to the base game feature in Wolf Gold also produced by Pragmatic Play. These bags have different values based on the stake and also can be each jackpot value, multipliers can be 2x,3x or 5x, total amount won is multiplied by these multipliers if they land. When a retrigger symbol lands a new feature is awarded which starts from the beginning with the same starting grid from the previous round.

To trigger the bonus feature you need to land 3 scatter symbols on reels 2,3 and 4. This will award 10 free spins, during these spins the 2 top symbols will transform into wilds on reels 2,3,4, and 5. You can also retrigger these spins by landing 3 scatters again on reels 2,3 and 4 for an additional 10 free spins. Also, special reels are used for this feature.


Overall, I think Pragmatic Play has created a high variance and fun game idea. With a max win of 32,270x and jackpot up to 1,200x on offer. Be sure to try out the slot for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
