Go Slot Mad For Pirate Day

Go Slot Mad For Pirate Day

Published on by Ben

Arrrrrrrrr, ahoy there buckos!

Happy International Talk Like A Pirate Day –  our favourite special day of the year after Christmas!

Ever since two mates came up with the silly idea to include a day in the calendar for celebrating booty-loving pirates in 1995, the day has been growing in popularity year upon year.

We’re hoping today will be the biggest yet and, to do our little bit to help in that regard, we’ve put together a piece all about NetEnt’s Pirate slots.

So, landlubbers, take a big swig of grog and read on, lest we make you walk the plank and feed the fishes!

Ghost Pirates

Ghost pirate

One-Eyed Ed, Peggy Rotten, Polly and the Mad Monkey are a “part of the ship and part of the crew” haunting the reels of NetEnt’s Ghost Pirates.

Released in 2013, this slot clearly took influence by the blockbuster Pirates Of The Caribbean series, but gave the concept a fun and cartoonish flick.

Does it hold up today? From a visual perspective, it’s definitely aged well – looking just as colourful, fun and exciting as it did 6 years ago.

There’s a noticeable lack of special features though, a trademark of more modern NetEnt games, so the game does start to feel as stale as ship’s biscuits after a while.

Hook’s Heroes

Hook’s Heroes Slot ScreenshotNext up we have Hook’s Heroes, a childish and playful slot about young buccaneer-wannabes imagining at life at sea pillaging and plundering.

This slot, released in 2015, was popular when he came out – but you’ll likely not see it advertised very strongly at many casinos now – especially at those in the UK market.

Why? Because the UK Gambling Commission has cracked down on slots featuring child-like images, fearing that they may encourage children under 18s to play.

Just like fruity vodka pops and vaping flavours based on sweets, slots that could reasonably attract children are now seriously frowned upon.

It’s a shame, because Hook’s Heroes is a fun and relaxing slot that’s been really well designed.

But don’t worry, you can still pillage and plunder to your heart’s desire on this game, and we definitely recommend that you do.

Wait, is that it? Just Two?

Surprisingly the answer is basically yes – there are only two NetEnt pirate games worth talking out.

NetEnt also released a classic slot aeons okay called Pirate’s Gold, but it’s a discontinued basic slot that’s past its sell-by-date, so we won’t waste your time with it here!

With that said, we hope you enjoy Pirate day and get your hands on as much booty and rum as possible… although we recommend staying away from the poop deck, it smells a bit.
