Yar harr me maties! Are you ready for another swashbuckling adventure? Good! There’s treasure to be found out there on the open ocean. It’s not just you out there seeking their fortune, oh no. There are others seeking the maps and the bounty. So make sure you’ve readied your cannons before you depart!
Themes and Symbols
Jolly Roger 2 takes place on the high seas during the golden age of piracy. Naval battles and rum a plenty, there’s always excitement to be found on the vast blue ocean.
The score that plays alongside this game is what you’d expect for a pirate adventure. It’s a score that screams adventure and feels like it should be accompanied by the booming voices of your crewmates singing sea shanties.
The effects that play on winning spins are sharp and pronounced, grabbing your attention and only letting go when it’s finished showing you what it wants. When you click to spin, the sounds that the reels make sound like sails unfurling, ready to lead you to your prize.
The art work on the icons is well done and the graphics are superb. While animation on spins is a nit light, where the game shines in that department is when the bonus games trigger. It’s a standard fare for Play ‘n GO, producing quality seemingly so effortlessly.
Betting Options and Features
Loading up the game you’ll notice it’s a standard 5 reel, 3 row video slot but where the game shines is during its mini-games. The game boasts 20 paylines and a RTP of 96.2%.
When sailing the seven seas, there’s icons you need to look out for. This is just as true today as it was during the age of pirates.
While you’re out sailing you’ll want to look out for other pirates, which in this case represents the scatter symbol and their skull and crossbones flag which represents the wild symbol.
The wild symbol can substitute for any icon in the game except of course for the scatter.
Should 3 scatters appear on the grid, that will trigger the bonus mini-game feature.
When the mini-game feature triggers, you’ll be prompted to find 3 matching treasure maps out of 12 scraps of paper. There are 4 possible mini-games to get from here and all of them are pretty unique. The bonus games are:
- Instant Prize – Awards a random amount of credit as a prize.
- Bottle of Rum Free Spin – This bonus spin adds bottles of rum to the grid, bottles of rum turn the reels wild.
- Battle Free Spin – Various icons appear on the grid, match them to win the day!
- Treasure Hunt – Get awarded with 10 bonus spins and try to collect 4 treasure maps to claim the prize.
There’s also a compass that spins randomly that can award you anywhere between a x2 to a x10 multiplier on your spin.
Jolly Roger 2 is another solid entry from developer Play ‘n GO. While fairly basic for a video slot, it makes up for it in its mini-games.
If you were a fan of the first entry, definitely give this one a go!
