Join the infamous Anne Bonny as she breaks the convoy and gives you rich pickings in this Wild Seas mobile slot.
Don’t disregard this game by Elk Studios as just another Pirate ship, nothing from Elk is ever that simple.
For one, they use a real historical character, the infamous Anne Bonny, as the pirate Captain, out to claim the riches of the English, The French and the Portuguese.
You can feel the excitement in the air in the West Indies, much like you could feel the air of war in the Poltava phone slot.
The base game flies by fairly quickly, thanks to this being a 178 ways to win slot machine.
That said, nothing much happens in the base game other than the occasional wild symbol flirting across the screen.
And yet it rarely drags – that said as a medium variance slot you need to be able to play for 50 to 100 spins to get the bonus games, triggered by only 2 wilds on screen.
That’s when things get interesting: because what you get is a free spin bonus feature like no other.
You basically get a row of wild symbols that slowly walk across the screen, one row at a time. And whilst you think that might only get you 5 free spins, there’s more to this casino game than first appears.
Because Anne Bonny tries to sink those ships, holding them back and giving you even more re-spins.
If Anne Bonny manages to sink one of those wild walking ships in the Wild Seas slot free spins, you get to level 2.
It doesn’t happen often, maybe once every 3 or 5 entries into the bonus round, but when you do, it can be spectacular.
Then, every wild on screen turns to treasure and stays on screen as a sticky wild, giving you extra spins – more than 5, usually no more than 15.
The whole concept sounds complicated, with ships, bombers, and a full-on embargo happening live on your screen.
But that’s part of the fun. Because once you see how the slot bonus games trigger and hit big, you’ll realise that “it’s a pirates life for me.”
And if not, you can always seek out Egyptian treasure in Elk’s Hidden mobile slot.

The Wild Symbols: The Black Pirate flag with 'Wild Seas' on it is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols on screen to create a win.
The Bonus Free Spins (level 1): If you get 2 wild symbols on screen you start the first level of the free spins, and the one you'll experience most often.
Here, one of the three main captains will be chosen; the English, the French or the Portuguese. You will now only have one rather than 3 high paying symbols, meaning more chance of catching a big win.
Then, their ships will line up on the left of the screen and act as wilds, covering a whole reel each time they move by one - giving you a minimum of 5 free spins with one wild reel.
But then, our bonny Irish lass and Pirate Captain shows up on reel 5 and fires on the ships. These hit ships will stay sticky on that reel for one spin and then move again, giving you an additional free spin.
Once the ships move off the side of the screen, the free spins end, not unlike the Taco Brothers slot.
The Bonus Free Spins (level 2): Better yet if Anne Bonny hits any of the ships three times in a row that ship will turn into a treasure wild.
This wild symbol (or wilds if you are lucky but unlikely, to sink more than one ship) will now stay sticky on screen once level one finishes.
You now start a whole new free spin bonus round, where every time a wild and a pirate ship shows up, you get an extra sticky wild.
This continues until the pirate ship and the barrel symbols are on screen at the same time - usually giving you an extra 5 free spins, and at least 2 sticky wilds.
This Wild Seas slot on mobile sounds complicated, but it's basically a simple game with wilds and free spins.
The free spins are where all the interesting things happen, as you sink ships and wild symbol to find treasure onboard.
It's not without faults, it can be a while between free spin rounds and entering the mobile bonus games doesn't guarantee big wins.
But that's not to say you won't have fun in what is a brilliantly executed game that mixes theme and features beautifully.
Add some in-game betting strategies that change your bet automatically and a low minimum bet of 0.20 a spin, and this is a must try.
That said, fans of simpler casino slots should probably seek out something like the Ho Ho Tower slot machine instead.
