Pillage and Plunder with the Pirates!

Sail the high seas for some thrilling adventures and old fashioned wins. Sharky is an old fashioned kind of video slot, but with a few wiley twists that’ll keep you hooked, including a 95.49% RTP, shifting wilds and free spins!

Gameplay

Novomatic love their old-school slots and Sharky is no exception! The graphics are pretty basic and the old school pokie machine sound effects definitely take you back to the good ol’ days, but there’s more depth to this 5×3 reel, 9 payline slot than meets the eye. Sharky, the pirate lord, represents the Wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols except the three scatter symbols: the compass, the pirate ship and the desert island.

Sharky also pays out from even 1 symbol appearing on the reels and up to 250 coins for 5 symbols. The base symbols, from highest paying to lowest, include the parrot, which pays up to 50 coins, the treasure chest, the crossed swords and card symbols from 9-K. The 9, which is the lowest value symbol, pays out with even just 2 symbols on the reels and up to 5 coins for 5 symbols.

There is also a standard gamble feature you can activate on any win, where you guess mystery playing card’s colour to get double or nothing.

Special Features

When the pirate ship appears on reel 1 and the desert island appears on reel 5, it activates the 10 free spins bonus game. In the bonus game, any pirate ship on reel 1 lowers a lifeboat, which acts as a Wild and has to reach the island on reel 5. It does this by shifting over one reel on every spin, and staying Wild the whole way.

The only way the lifeboat can be stopped from reaching its island destination is if it’s attacked by the shark symbol. Also, if you a treasure chest appears anywhere directly adjacent with the lifeboat, it can award random extra prizes.

Verdict

This old school, pokies machine style video game may be fairly simple, but it’s fun to play and with an RTP of 95.49%, it can still pay out fairly nicely.
