As the name suggests, Pirates Paradise is a pirate-themed slots machine by Microgaming. It’s a pub-style game with one payline, three reels and a three-column pay table. Note that there are several other online slots in the classic style that use the title Pirates Paradise, and all of them share many similarities. This machine, however, does stand out due to the authentic spin action and sound effects that reflect Microgaming’s experience developing physical slot machines for Las Vegas and Atlantic City casinos.
Like a true one-armed bandit, Pirates Paradise has three spinning reels, and those reels can come to a stop with the symbols off-center from the payline. When setting the stake, players have the option of betting one to three coins, and the number of coins determines how rich the payouts are. For the most part, the payouts are scale evenly, but there’s a big jump at the jackpot tier that favors three-coin bets. Consider that a $0.25 bet has a max jackpot of $125, but a $0.75 bet has a max jackpot of $625.
Pirates Paradise offers several special features that help to offset the disadvantage of symbols that can just miss the centerline. The first of these is the conch shell symbol, which pays out with just one or two symbols on the payline as well as with three across. The second is the any bar feature, which pays out on any three-across combination of bar, double bar and triple bar symbols. Thirdly, the game offers a mix-and-match feature on the Jolly Roger and treasure chest symbols; three across in any combination provides a payout of at least 40 coins and as many as 120.
Graphics and Audio
Pirates Paradise is a very colorful and vibrant game, and it has a distinct, cartoonish art style that we find very engaging. Like most Microgaming Classics, it also has authentic slot machine sound effects, and those definitely add to the immersion. Music and sound only play during spins, however, so they don’t become repetitive, and if you’re automating spins, you always have the option to mute them.
The Pirates Paradise jackpot is 500, 1000 or 2500 coins depending on whether one, two or three coins were wagered. At the maximum bet of $15, which uses a $5 coin size, the jackpot is $12,500. The smallest bet that achieves the top odds is $0.75, and if you prefer a smaller bet, you’ll find other Microgaming Classics that favor that kind of wager.
Pirates Paradise is an energetic game, and that’s what players want from the pub style, which is meant to play fast and furious and without many details bogging it down. Microgaming develops many classic slot machines, but few of them hit the mark as well as this one does.
