Pirate Golden Age (Pragmatic Play)

Pirate Golden Age (Pragmatic Play) slotPirate Golden Age joins the long list of new slots by Pragmatic Play. From its title, you can tell the direction that the slot is going, and therefore, the story inside might not be unique.

However, we know the creativity associated with Pragmatic Play, and we know they have the potential to play around with this rather common theme and come up with something very interesting.

Here is more bout Pirate Golden Age:

Game Set-Up

It is set on 5 reels with up to 20 pay lines. Pirate Golden Age has a long list of features that include wilds, scatters, multipliers, and mystery symbols.

Betting and Prizes

Even with the availability of 20 pay lines, you can get started with real money bets by spending as little as $0.20 per spin. The maximum that you can spend on a round is $100 which is a good amount, especially for high rollers.

Pirate Golden Age offers up to 3,000x the stake, which in my opinion is pretty low for a slot with high volatility.

However, the developer has been generous with the RTP, and you get up to 96.49%.

Pirate Golden Age Slot Features

Pirate Golden Age offers some great features, and one that really stands out is the Pirate Skull Wild. This is what you will use as a basic replacement symbol as you form winning symbols.

On this slot, the wild only works as a substitute, so you won’t be able to use it to trigger other features. When it comes to forming its own winning combos, the wild pays an amount equal to what the slot’s top symbol pays. So, with a combo landing up to 5 times within the same line, you can expect up to 75x the stake.

Then we have the Compass Bonus, a feature that appears on all reels. This serves as the scatter, and with its help, you will be in a position to trigger some free spins (up to 7 are possible). The Compass Bonus will also pay up to 200x the stake whenever it appears.

Inside, there are mystery symbols, and these come in an image of a gold coin. Mystery symbols are converted either into a wild or in some cases into a random regular icon. Thereafter, the mystery symbols are collected and added back onto the reels (this happens once the feature comes to an end).

Theme & Design

Clearly, we’re looking at a slot with some pirate-inspired graphics. Generally, we can say that Pragmatic Play did well with the design quality, especially for a slot with such a common theme.

Royals are present to represent some low-pay icons, alongside some themed symbols in the images of anchors, bombs, coins, pirates, and parrots.


With such a popular theme, Pirate Golden Age is a slot that has done extremely well. The graphics are excellent, and so it’s the RTP that helps to counter its brutal volatility.

However, due to the slot’s high volatility, I can only recommend it to more experienced gamers.
