Ghost Ship Slots

The Flying Dutchman might be the best example of a famous ghost ship, and we think the creators of the Ghost Ship slot game might well have read about it prior to developing this slot. Everything looks rather dark and murky in this game, which makes sense given the theme. We're going to brave this game to bring you answers about the ship and its possible occupants - if, that is, we return…

Developer info for the Ghost Ship slot

If you love slots from the Realtime Gaming crew, here's another one you can put in that category.

They provide another practice game here as well

RTG is a reliable provider in this sense, as you can always find a demo version to try if you are curious to see how a game plays.

A ghostly theme

With the Ghost Ship title making it clear just what the theme is in this game, it doesn't take long to work out how this game plays on this level. It seems there is just one ghostly ship here, although we think that would be enough for anyone.

Expect the murkiest and most curious of designs

There is a lot of green and blue in this one, with a mysterious feel over the whole thing. The appearance clearly matters a lot here, and we think RTG has done a superb job of giving it a ghostly setting.

How to play the Ghost Ship slot game

If you are brave enough to venture forth, you can expect five reels to appear out of the mist. The ghostly captain of the ship is used as a wild, but don't freak out when you see him. He is powerful, certainly, but he substitutes for most other symbols. The only thing he doesn't replace is the ghost ship itself. If you know your slots, you'll guess that this is a scatter symbol. Finally, the game also comes with two progressive jackpots.

There are lots of paylines spread over the reels

A familiar quantity in many games is a set of 25 lines, and that's what we have here.

Bets are kept on the low side for the Ghost Ship game

Coins go from one penny to a quarter, so you can get underway by approaching it as a penny slot if you like. Even the highest bet doesn't result in a massive wager, so this isn't really for the high roller players.

The paytable includes explanations and prize values

And for those reasons, you should make this your first port of call before playing the game.

The game does not offer a bonus round

Things play out in a traditional manner here, which means no bonus to trigger.

How many free games might you collect?

The usual trigger of three or more ghostly ships is in action here too. However, the triggering combination determines how many you'll get. Two free games drop for each ship that appears. You will always trigger at least six, then, but there is a chance of finding more. You'll also receive two for each ghost captain showing up in that same spin.

If the ghost ship or captain land on a reel during the free games, the remaining spots on that reel are taken up by wild ghost captains. There's no multiplier for three triggering scatters, but four would bring a 2x multiplier and five offer you a mega 10x multiplier.

We do not have any RTP details

The return to player percentage has been kept under wraps here, not showing up in the paytable.

Our rating: Is it worth sailing toward the Ghost Ship slot game?

The game has been around for a while, sailing aimlessly and without a crew, but if you see it drift into view, you may want to check it out more closely. It's certainly one worth playing in our opinion - we love the graphics and tone of this one, and the features elevate it to 7.5 out of 10.

The ghost captain holds the key to the best prize

Finding five on a paid line will trigger the top prize of 2,500x your bet for that line.

Demo play allows you to sail through a few spins to learn more

Is that too much with the sailing links? You can find out what you think of this ghostly captain and his ship without risk if you play the demo game.

Play for real if you like the theme and presentation

We love the free spin round in this one, as it really does bring you a few twists on the usual round you might see in other slots. Check your wagers before you play though.

You should also spot the ship in mobile casinos

The game has received a spruce up since its release, which means you should find you can play it at mobile casinos featuring RTG slots as well.
