Hit the High Seas in this Entertaining Pirate Themed Slot from WMS
In recent years, movies such as those in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, have bought adventures on the seas to the forefront. Instead of Captain Jack Sparrow leading the way however, this pirate crew has a female leader. Holding a long sword in one hand and a pistol in the other, there is certainly no messing with the pirate queen. Check out her crew too, all who appear on the reels throughout the game. No pirate is complete without their ship, and this eye-catching vessel plays a leading role as the bonus symbol.
Pirate Queen is an atmospheric and involving slot, offering up the following range of features:

The Pirate Queen’s ship acts as the bonus symbol of the game. The ship has distinct flaming sails and displays a skull, this skull looking a little more alien perhaps than the usual skull and crossbones, and therefore a little more sinister. To enter the free spins you’ll need to hit three or more of the sailing ship symbols, where you’ll be awarded 10 free spins. Some of the bonus symbols feature an added number, which can be any number up to +5. Should you activate the free spins, this number will be added to the 10 spins.
During the free spins bonus feature, the wild symbol (represented by the logo of the slot) is stacked on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, ensuring many more winning chances.
There is a total of six progressive jackpots to be won in Pirate Queen – the mini A, B and C, the minor A and B and the Major.
You’ll notice during both the base game and the free spins feature that the backing to some of the reels turns gold. To win a progressive jackpot you’ll need to line up full gold-backed reels in a row. Line 3 fully gold reels in a row and you’ll win mini Jackpots A, B or C (based on whether they are in the 1-2-3, 2-3-4 or 3-4-5 position). Line up four fully gold reels and you’ll win minor jackpots A and B (based on whether they are in the 1-2-3-4 or 2-3-4-5 position). Hit the maximum five gold reels in a row and you’ll win the major progressive jackpot!
Pirate Queen is a five-reel slot with a total of 40 win-lines. The cost of each spin is 60 credits – you’ll pay 40 credits for the lines and an additional 20 credits for the features.
The highest paying symbol in the game is the Pirate Queen herself. The queen symbol is stacked four-high, so lining up the queen on the reels will pay huge dividends. Next on the pay table are the pirate queen’s crew, while the low end of the pay table features the playing card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A. The wild, which plays such an important role in the base game, will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the scatter.
Behind the reels of Pirate Queen, you’ll see glimpses of the sea at night, where the pirates embark on their skulduggery. On the reels you’ll find the nice mix of different individuals that make up this pirate crew, each bringing their own character into the game. Improvements such as animation on winning and a pirate themed soundtrack, instead of the generic slot sounds, might have improved the design.
Pirate Queen is a slot that is more involving than your usual game. During every spin, you’ll be looking out for both matching symbols and those golden backed reels – giving you two ways to win at every spin. Line up five golden reels in a row and you’ll feel like a pirate yourself, as you lay your hands on that major Jackpot. With a free spins bonus feature too, where wild stacks are added into the mix, you’ve got a slot with a nice amount of variety. Just have your sword ready.
