Crazy Pirate Slots [rating: 3.5/5]
Saturday September 19th 2010 is International Talk Like a Pirate Day and while it’s still 5 months away there’s no better time to start getting into the pirate talking habit and Crazy Pirate Slots developed by Clever Fox Software could be just the game to do that.
There’s just one set of slots to play with and it’s full of pirate related items such as treasure chests, hooks, cutlasses and jugs of ale. As you would expect the aim is to spin the reels and get matching sets to earn yourself gold coins.
You start off with 20 coins and you can up you stake at any time as long as you have the coins to cover it. A lever on the right side of the screen is pulled to start the reels spinning and you can then either tap each one to stop it or choose the auto-stop option to get them to stop automatically.
As I mentioned previously this is just a simple arcade style slots game so there is no ability to hold reels, nudge them or anything else, it’s just spin, spin and spin. It’s simple and fun and that’s even before the mini games have been thrown into the mix.
Firstly there are the parrots and the skulls, if either of these appear when the reels stop you’ll have a split second to tap them repeatedly before you’ll lose out. Missing a skull will will lose you five times your bet and if that’s more than the coins you have it will be instant game over. While hitting a parrot will take you to a bonus mini game where you get to spin a wheel to win additional coins.
In addition every time you win coins you will move up towards your Booty Bonus which when reached will give you even more coins.
The game is linked to the OpenFeint network and comes with 21 achievements and a global leader board.
While Crazy Pirate Slots is not going to be a replacement to the more serious casino style slots games it’s still a fun game when you have a few minutes to spare.
