Arr! With Sharky™ you're a dreaded pirate on the prowl in the Caribbean. Set sail and steer your ship towards the winnings - the compass will show you the way! In the regular game you roam on up to 9 win lines across 5 reels looking for pirate gold. Additional features open up truly legendary treasures you for.
Your aim is to land 5 matching symbols along an active win line. All win lines run in different patterns along the reels from left to right. To win you have to land several identical symbols from the left side by side on a line without interruption. The Pirate substitutes all symbols except for Scatter. If the Ship lands on reel 1 and the Island on reel 5, you win 10 free spins.
You win 10 Free Games if you sight a ship on the first reel and an island on the fifth reel. This means 'winnings ahead' for the next 10 (stake free) rounds. You automatically play with the settings of your last regular game round and you win additional Free Games with the Ship/Island combo.
If a ship appears in the Free Game a new boat will be lowered into the water on reel 1. The boat replaces all the symbols except for the island, the ship and the compass. All boats which have been lowered into the water move from left to right across the reels in the Free Game and increase your chances of winning. They can be stopped by a shark.
If a boat touches a treasure chest you get a random win.
How do you play?
After starting the game you can adjust the game settings according to your preferences:
- Click on the 'Bet' or 'Bet/Line' buttons to choose your line bets. You can increase or decrease the current amount using the arrow keys. Please note: You can only adjust the amount within the minimum or maximum bet limits.
- Click on the 'Lines' button to choose the number of lines in the same way. With some games you can adjust the number of lines individually (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.), at other games you can adjust the number of lines gradually (e.g. 5, 10 or 15 lines). If the number of lines is set in a game you cannot alter it.
- Click on the ‘Paytable' button to go to the winnings overview. Here you can view the potential winnings for each winning combination based on the size of your current bet.
- The Menu Symbols buttons in the top right corner of the game enable you to adjust music and audio settings, activate the help menu or exit the game.
You can spin the reels once by clicking on the 'Start' button. Click the 'Autostart' button to trigger automatic spins and click the ‘Stop' button to stop automatic spins.
If you have landed a winning combination you can bet your winnings again in the Gamble Game and with some luck double them. Your odds of winning are 50:50.
Depending on the slot machine the Gamble game can vary:
The 'Gamble' Button is the most common variation of our slot machines: It appears when you have won. Clicking the 'Gamble' button starts the Gamble Game. If you don't want to gamble click on the 'Collect' button.
Gamble symbols heart and clubs: With some games two symbols appear below the slot machine: Heart and clubs. They will be activated when you win. If you have the opportunity to gamble, heart and clubs will flash alternately. If you click on one of the two symbols you bet your winnings again in the Gamble Game.
