How To Play

If you thought ELK’s Wild Seas served up a pirate delight then just wait until you load up the Boom Pirates slot. A crisp animation that deserves a place on a next-gen console introduces you to the pirates, the ship and the promise of finding hidden treasure.

Once you’re onto the reels that is the aim. A tropical island sits in the background with the ship anchored in front, ready for you to explore the reels in front of you. As with all online slots that know their onions, the buttons are clearly laid out at the bottom of the screen. You can always see how many Free Spins you’ve got or your balance, along with the number of Wonderways, signposted at the top left. Start spinning away and listen out for the “boooom pirates” shout-out, as that’s when the reels can increase. And so can your wins.


A pirate themed slot is obviously going to have pirate themed symbols. Yes, quite right. Alongside the 10 to Ace card values, the higher symbols are represented by Gunpowder Barrels, Parrots, Canons, a tattooed pirate, complete with eyepatch and he’s named…Ben. Then there’s Captain Mary, the heroine, the star, the leader, and the one who can give you 25 times your stake for nine of a kind. There are no Wilds on this slot, but there are bonus features which more than make up for it.


As well as bonuses which you can activate before you even start spinning, it’s the lucrative Wonderways which are the real treasure.
