Join the hilarious crew of The Beak Pearl on the slot from Pariplay and sail the high seas in search of lost treasures. It’s all hands on deck on Parrot’s Gold with Pearl Suprise Respins, a Jackpot Picker bonus game with four fixed jackpots and a free spins round that can lead to wins of up to 2,400 times your bet.
Parrot’s Gold is a video slot with six reels, four rows and 50 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Your quest for treasures on desktop or mobile will start at just 0.20 credits and peak at 20 credits per spin. The medium variance game has an RTP of 95.98%.
The game window is placed onboard The Beak Pearl, the pirate ship that will take you on a squawking reel adventure with the four parrot pirates. Four displays on the right indicate the fixed jackpots that can be won in the bonus game. The entire design is held in a cartoon style while a typical pirate soundtrack together with scatter thumps keep things lively during the gameplay.
The low-value symbols are the card royals from 10 through to A carved from wooden planks, paying 1.6x to 3x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by four parrots with the captain Jack Parrot being the most valuable. Hit five one a line to win 5x to 12x your stake.
Jack Parrot’s compass is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular pay symbols. There are three bonus symbols on the reels – free spin scatters, pearl respin symbols and jackpot bonus flags.
As to be expected from a pirate-themed slot, there is a lot happening on the reels. The game has three features that are each triggered by its own scatter symbol – Pearl Surprise Respins, Jackpot Picker bonus game and the Free Spins round.
Hitting minimum five pearls anywhere on the reels will trigger the Pearl Surprise Respins. The triggering pearls are held while three respins are awarded. Any further pearls landing will be held in place, resetting the counter to three. This continues until you fill the entire screen with pearls or you run out of respins. Each pearl is overlayed with a coin value. These will be added at the end to determine the total win from the respin feature.
Similarly, landing minimum five scatters in one spin will trigger the Free Spins feature. Each is marked with a number of free spins which will be added to determine the starting amount of free rounds. Up to 120 free spins can be won in one spin, which can be retriggered indefinitely. However, there is no multiplier or modifier active during the feature, they are simply free rounds. The other two features can be triggered on any free spin.
The final feature, that can lead to jackpot wins of up to 300 times your bet, is the Jackpot Picker bonus game, where one of four fixed jackpots can be won. The bonus symbols are pirate flags marked with the word “Jackpot”. Hit minimum five to enter the pick-and-click bonus game with 17 scrolls. You can now pick one scroll at a time to reveal either Mini, Minor, Major and Grand Jackpot symbols, an x2 or x3 multiplier. Find three matching jackpot symbols to win the respective jackpot. Without multipliers, the Mini will pay 10x, the Minor 25x, the Major 50x and the Grand 100x your total bet. Only one multiplier can be found in one round, putting the maximum win in the bonus game to 300 times your stake.
Did we like our pirate adventure on Parrot’s Gold? Not entirely, but it was hilarious enough to see us return to the slot to play it for real money when it is released. The visuals and animations are impeccable, while the features hit often enough to avoid boredom. While I have some trouble to see how you could win up to 2,400 times your bet on this slot, I am sure it will be good for regular big wins in the 100x to 500x range.
