Take to the high seas with the supplier’s buccaneering new release

Sydney, 25th October 2017: Specialist slots supplier Lightning Box has enhanced its industry-leading portfolio of games with the release of its latest title, Five Pirates.

This game has been a proven winner from the Asian online market to the South American land-based venues, and is now made available to the European online audiences via NYX’s OGS.

The 4×5 reel slot, which features 1024 different ways to win, combines an engaging soundtrack with excellent presentation, filling the reels with skull and crossbones, cannons and the game’s titular heroes.

All the symbols pay left-to-right, while the scatter symbol triggers the game’s unique “Hold-n-Spin” bonus round.

Peter Causley, Managing Director at Lightning Box, said: “We are thrilled to release Five Pirates, a proven game that transports players across the Caribbean and into the golden age of piracy.

“We’re very confident that landlubbers and seadogs alike will enjoy exploring the game’s richly detailed and immersive setting and its unique feature section.”

The innovative Hold-n-Spin bonus round blows extra gusto into the game’s billowing sails.

Activated when two to four scatter symbols appear left to right, it covers each reel where the symbol appears with an ancient scroll, re-spinning the uncovered reels up to three times to uncover more scatter symbols.

If all the reels are covered the player will enter the Five Pirates Bonus Round and be whisked away to choose from one of five bonuses. This lets them try for up to 15 free games, or a big multiplier up to 15x stake.

Five Pirates joins Lightning Box’s proven portfolio of top-performing slot titles, including recent releases Stellar Serengeti Lions and Red Roo.
