- A good-looking slot with a fun theme
- Has several bonuses with unique features
- Great idea let down by poor payouts
Ships Bounty slot comes from a smaller developer, Live 5 Gaming, that you may have not heard of before but they’re here to offer you a fun new slot with some cool features and potential for decent payouts. One thing I like about this slot is the design. It’s fun, colourful and really draws you in. The pirate theme is exciting and although not especially original, it’s certainly not as overused as other theme outs there; I’m looking at you, Ancient Egypt. You have 5 reels here with 4 rows, although as we’ll see these can expand. You need to get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols to get a win. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Clubs or Diamonds (lowest value)
- Mask (highest value)
There’s a Wild symbol too which substitutes for all of the above symbols in a winning combination.

Ships Bounty Slot Bonuses and Features
Booty Reels. One of the more interesting aspects of Ships Bounty slot is that it has special reels which are used to enhance the Free Spins symbol and the Chest symbol.
Expanding Reels. On every spin, up to 8 expanding respins can be awarded, whereby the reels expand on to either 5, 6 or 7 rows high.
Free Spins Bonus. To trigger the Bonus, you need to land the Free Spins symbol, but when enchanted this will award 4 free spins compared to 2, and an additional multiplier. You can also retrigger the Bonus which will give you further free spins and multipliers if enhanced. Furthermore, every Wild symbol that appears on a Booty Reel during the Bonus will increase the multiplier by 1x. All free spins are played at fully expanded reels.
Chest Bonus. This Bonus allows you to win coins which are worth a cash value. By enhancing the Chest symbols, you’ll be given more gold and platinum coins which are, of course, worth a higher value. You have 3 lives with this Bonus, and every dead spin will take a life whereas every coin that appears will reset the number of lives to 3. In other words, 3 spins without a coin showing ends the Bonus, unless you collect all of the coins for a payout of 1,750x your stake.
Ships Bounty slot from Live 5 Gaming has a few interesting Bonuses which offer some potential for nice payouts but leave you with the feeling that they could go a bit further to make this a really exciting game. The Free Spins Bonus is quite a good idea, but there aren’t enough free spins to take advantage of it, especially without enhanced symbols. The Chest Bonus is pretty cool and often pays out a decent amount but again, without enhancement, it doesn’t give too generously. I think the main problem I have with this slot is the low RTP at under 96%. The features are fun and could work well, but payouts here just aren’t enough even for a medium variance slot which is a shame. That said, it might be worth checking out so don’t discount it immediately.
