Pirate slots machines have always been one of the most popular types of slot games. So if you're looking for a Pirate slot, then you're spoiled for choice. We've got slots from some of the biggest and best slots developers. Wherever you're based in the world we've got at least one swashbuckling game for you to enjoy!
First up we take a look at what are, in our opinion, the top three pirate slots machines available to play right now. Then we take a look at the best of the rest.
Overview: We kick things off with what in our opinion is the best pirate themed slot currently available. Rival Software's Jolly Roger's Jackpot slot.
Rival's earliest slots games were never the most polished looking slots around. But with their newest games it looks like they've upped their game and got all new artists in. Their games look absolutely fantastic and Jolly Roger's Jackpot is no exception. This 5 reel, 50 payline video slot game looks amazing thanks to 3D graphics and animated symbols. Visually the game appears to take inspiration from the cult classic Secret of Monkey Island video games.
On the reels themselves there's a pirate ship, a skull and crossbones, treasure chest, bottle of rum, cannon and pirates.
Watch out for the Expanding Wild pirates. Who can appear on reels 1, 3, and 5. While 3 or more pirate ship bonus symbols will trigger the bonus feature. In which you must fire at 3 pirate ships. Each ship hit releases coins into the sea which you must click to collect.
The lady pirate symbol is a free spins scatter symbol. Hit 3 and you will win 10 free spins. While hitting 4 rewards 20 and 5 rewards an awesome 50 free spins.
In summary then, Rival's Jolly Roger's Jackpot is a superbly presented, enjoyable game. With play starting at just one cent Jolly Roger's Jackpot is well worth a spin.
Overview: From top developers Betsoft we have Barbary Coast slot game. A 5 reel 30 payline video slot that features stunning 3D graphics and a brilliant Hollywood style movie score. This game is not only bursting with swashbuckling atmosphere. It also comes with a nice set of game features ensuring your time spent with this motley crew never gets dull!
3 or more parrot symbols anywhere on the reels triggers a free spins feature. While landing a cannon in the center reel triggers the explosive Wild Reel feature. Land 3 or more Ben Sawyer pirate symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger the Dashing Sawyer Click Me Bonus.
Just to make sure you don't get a chance to take it easy. Landing 3 or more of the Captain Blackbeard symbols triggers a Fight Bonus. Take on Blackbeard in a sword fight and attempt to rescue the kidnapped maiden. Select your fighting option: slash, parry, or thrust then watch the fight unfold!
Watch out for the Grog Challenge in which you challenge the worker pirate to a drink off! This is a fifty-fifty heads/tails gamble game. Guess incorrectly and you must take a drink. 3 drinks and you're out for the count! Three or more Worker Pirate symbols triggers this feature.
To sum up, fans of Betsoft's incredible looking slots or indeed anyone looking for a pirate slots machine should certainly check out Barabry Coast and take it for a spin.
Overview: Pirate Isle is one of Realtime Gaming's 3D slots games. With graphics that put it head and shoulders above the typical Realtime Gaming slot in terms of visuals. This game starts off with a fully animated 3D movie before setting you on your pirate ship with 5 reels and 25 fixed paylines. Set to embark on a journey to a remote island where treasure lies waiting. Fixed paylines means you must wager on all 25 but there is an Extra Bet option you can turn on or off at anytime. Turning it on gives you access to the Broadside Feature and the chance to win a progressive jackpot.
The emphasis on this game is on the fun and cartoony rather than serious. This is reflected in the brilliant 3D symbols on the reels. Symbols include a Skeleton Key Wild, two bonus scatters in the form of Galleon and Treasure Chest. Plus your pirate crew, parrot, monkey canon, ships wheel and more.
This game has more symbols than the average and it has more features than average too. Let's take a quick look at each feature to give you an idea of what to expect:
Land 3 or more Key symbols during normal play and you will activate a Treasure Key ( silver, red, blue, yellow or green ). The Treasure Keys remain active until the completion of the next free spins feature.
Hit 3 or more scatter Treasure Chest symbols on the reels to activate Treasure Chest feature. Collect Treasure Keys by landing 3 or more matching color keys on a payline. Treasure Keys give you the chance to triple your wins in the bonus feature.
Land 3 or more treasure chests to trigger the Treasure Chest feature. In this game you will be presented with a Treasure map. You get to pick from 5 locations on the map to reveal either a chest, a new map or a ghost. Finding a chest awards a prize and another pick on the map. Best of all, if the lock on the chest matches one of your collected treasure key colors the prize is tripled. Finding a treasure map awards a new round of picks.
If you find a pirate ghost the round ends with up to 100 free spins or an amazing 300 free spins if you have 5 active Treasure Keys.
On the main reels hit 3 or more Galleons when the Extra bet feature is active and you will exchange fire with an enemy Galleon. Wins move up the prize ladder. You'll take on up to 5 opponents. If you manage to make it to the top of the ladder, the Pirate's Treasure Jackpot is yours. Defeating the Spanish treasure ships moves you up the ladder faster.
Overall this is a fantastic Pirate themed slot and one of Realtime Gaming's better slots.

The games below didn't make it into our top 3 but they are all worth checking out!
Swedish developers Net Entertainment are famous for their quality slots games. Ghost Pirates is their excellent take on the Pirates of the Caribbean theme. The game is beautifully designed and obviously takes inspiration from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Complete with suitably spooky music and dazzling video game style graphics set against a background of a ghostly pirate ship.
On the reels you'll find Peggy Rotten, One Eyed Ed, Mad Monkey with a bomb, Polly the parrot, pistols, treasure map and compass, canon, and anchor symbols, flagons, scatter treasure chests and a Skull and Bones Wild symbol.
Overview: From the famous slots developers Microgaming we have a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot game called Loose Cannon.
This is a fun, light hearted slot with nice cartoon graphics and jolly Pirate shanty music.
The game comes with wild symbol, scatter symbol, and free game feature and Wild Cannon feature.
The Free Spin feature is triggered when you land three Compass Scatter symbols on Reels 1, 3, and 5, awarding 15 Free Spins. While The Wild Cannon feature occurs on Reel 3 in both the Base Game and Free Spins, with the Expanding Wild turning up to 15 symbols Wild.
Overview: From developers Playtech we have Captain's Treasure slot game, a 5 reel 9 payline game with Dollar Ball progressive jackpot. This is one of Playtech's lotto-type progressive games with a side game where you pick 5 numbers out of 49. Then once you start the main game, five numbers will be drawn randomly. The more numbers match your selection, the more you win. If all five numbers match, you will win the Jackpot. The Dollar Ball will be played along with every main game round, with the same numbers, until you either change the numbers or disable the side game.
That's about all there to say about this game really - there are no bonus features at all so it's a very simple game and somewhat dated in terms of presentation. If you do happen to like your slots to be as simple as possible then this is the pirate game for you.
Also from Playtech is Captain's Treasure Pro. This is a more modern looking version of the game with 20 paylines and different payouts on the paytable. However this version does not feature the progressive jackpot side game but instead offers 10 free spins and a gamble option which lets you gamble on playing cards to double your win.
U.K. players can play Playtech games at Paddy Power Casino.
Playtech games are not suitable for U.S. players.
On the reels you'll find a Flying Dutchmen Ship's bell, sunken treasure, sunken figure head, cannon and Jack, Queen, King, Ace making up the standard symbols while The Ghost Captain is Wild and Ghost Ship symbol rewards with free spins when you hit 3 or more, with all prizes doubled during the free spins rounds and that's about it really - there are no bonus features in this one to keep things interesting. On the plus side this is another of Realtime Gaming's progressive jackpot games with both a "minor" and "major" jackpot up for grabs after any spin.
The graphics are jolly and colorful, if not exactly spectacular. On the reels you'll find a Pirate Ship, Cannon, parrot, gold coin, treasure chest, Jack, Queen, King, Ace and of course Blackbeard himself.
Watch out for the Goldbeard wild symbol - land it on reels one and five for the opportunity to win up to 24 free games and if you hit a Goldbeard in a winning combination, your prize is doubled and tripled during the free spins games.
If you're looking to dip your toe in the water then Goldbeard is a good choice as you can get started with just one penny and there's the random progressive jackpot which can be won after any spin.
Last but note least, we couldn't finish this page of Pirate themed slots without mentioning our very own exclusive pirate themed slots games of which there are two.
First up is our oldest Pirate Slot game is a fun 5 reel, 12 payline slot game with a Wild pirate sword symbol and two scatter symbols (compass and treasure map).
