Jolly Roger is more commonly known as the Pirate’s flag embedded with the skull and crossbones symbol particularly white on a black or dark background. This flag was the most commonly used flags among Pirates in the late 17th and early 18th century. It is a sort of identification to instil terror and anguish to would-be victims and also as an illegitimate way for pirates to identify themselves as being remorseless bandits ready to kill, steal and cause havoc and destruction on the way.
The name Jolly Roger is believed to have come from the ironic French words ‘Jolie Rouge’ meaning in literal terms ‘Pretty Red’, based on the flags used by earlier French Pirates. The cartooned adaptation and animation of this game is quite revealing and lifelike at times making you feel as if you are there on the spot but really positive and you will feel it in your skin as you set on board with Jolly Roger for battle, treasure hunting and challenge as you drift in the high seas far in the horizon.
Jolly Roger Slots is a 5 reel game devised by the Play’n Go crew whereby you can activate up to a maximum of 15 lines and bet up to 5 coins per line. Coin denominations range from 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.25, 0.50, and 1.00. Your bet selections is child’s play by using the buttons situated on the bottom left hand of the screen to select the coin value, number of coins, and number of lines in numerical order.
The symbols consist of a skull on gold coins, treasure chests, pirate ships and bottles of rum, pieces of a map, crossed swords, cannon, a pirate ship, the one-eyed pirate, a red-jewelled ring and a huge diamond. The Jolly Roger flag is the Wild symbol, the parrot is the scatter symbol, and two bonus symbols are represented by the chest and map.
The Wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols except the parrot and the map symbol in the evaluation of a winning combination. Any winning combination that comprises the wild as substitute will double the normal pay-out.
3, 4, or 5 of the Chest symbols on an active pay line will trigger the Treasure Chest bonus round. In this feature, a new screen will pop up divulging a number of treasure chests on a bundle of gold bars. You are invited to pick two of the chests with each one revealing a prize.
3 map pieces on an active payline in the base game will trigger the other bonus round which will send you on a treasure hunt. The animation here is quite stunning with the 3 pieces of the map unravelling into one with buried treasures indicated by a cross on the map. You dig out the treasures or the prize that you have won by selecting a cross on the map. The map pieces only appear on reels 1, 2 and 3.
