The setting of this online video slots game is aboard a scary pirate ship sailing in the vast sea at night, with heavy waves and a nearby volcano that looked like it is going to explode anytime. If you check the corners of the reels, flaming torches light up the dark night, with skeleton ghost pirates going up on the rigging. You will definitely appreciate the stunning animated graphics on the reels whenever you hit a winning combination involving the Wild and Scatter symbols. The symbols are drawn according to its creepy theme, dark and eerie character icons and other pirate objects. Even if the drawings are mostly dark, it will not hurt your eyes. The overall graphic design of Ghost Pirates displays different colors of blue, green, black, orange, purple, pink, gray, yellow, brown and orange.
Ghost Pirates has sound effects that will make you “mentally” shiver to the bone. The background sounds resemble ghosts moaning and groaning, the wind making the ship’s loose metal rigging creak slowly; all of the background sounds are perfect for a pirate ship that is full of ghosts. Pirate-themed celebratory music from drums and trumpets are what you will hear when you manage to get winning combinations in this slot game.

The Wild Symbol is the Ghost Pirate. It can act as a substitute for other symbols in order to help you complete winning combinations, and it can even substitute the Treasure Chest Scatter symbols as well!
The Scatter Symbol is the Treasure Chest.
