Most software providers offer pirate themed online slot games in their portfolios. These are very popular because there are many iconic images associated with pirates which are used as symbols on the reels. The action of the pirate theme also leads to interesting bonus game features. This article reviews two pirate themed slot machines from the software provider Microgaming. These can be played at online casinos like All Slots, Royal Vegas and Spin Palace.

Loose Cannon is the later release and is definitely the more slicker of the two with 3D graphics crafted in detail. The reels are set on a pirate ship. It also features the Microgaming 243 ways to win feature. The symbols include the pirate captain and his sexy sultry first mate. You will also find the captain’s monkey, which is a welcome change from the usual parrot. The treasure chest, the map, the flagon of rum and the pistols complete the pirate icons. However, the largest payouts are awarded by the Loose Cannon logo. Watch out for the nifty and somewhat comical win animations. There are two bonus features. One of them is the free spins feature triggered by the compass appearing on reels 1, 3 and 5. You are awarded 15 free spins in which winning combinations can appear left to right and right to left. The pirate ship is the wild symbol. When it lands on reel 3 it creates a wild stack. Randomly the ship’s cannon may fire and turn additional symbols into wilds in the Wild Cannon Bonus. This is the significance of the title Loose Cannon.

Shiver Me Feathers is a much older slot game. The expression, instead of the usual Shiver Me Timbers, indicates that birds take on the role of pirates. The parrot becomes the captain and is the boss. This symbol is the wild and also awards the top line payout. His first mate is a mutinous looking crow. The other symbols are the crab, the Jolly Roger, the map and treasure chest all crafted comically in keeping with the attitude of the online slot. The treasure chest awards the scatter payouts. Shiver Me Feathers has only bonus feature - a free spins round. This is triggered when the treasure chest appears on reels 1 and 5. You are taken on the second screen and asked to pick a gold chest and a red chest. One reveals the number of free spins and the other reveals the free spins multiplier.
