Jolly Roger's Jackpot Slots is one of the best pirate themed slots we have ever played, and we have played our fair share across the high seas of the internet. It looks amazing, in many ways is on par with a feature film or video game, and there really isn’t much to fault about this wonderfully well produced effort in a genre filled with half attempts and missed opportunities. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with it, mostly wishing that we could see more of the nice art, or there were other ways to engage with it. If you like what you see, skip this review and immediately head to giving it a spin. You will not be disappointed.
The premise of Jolly Roger's Jackpot Slots is Pirates. Pretty much Pirates of the Caribbean to be fair. The titular character bears a striking resemblance to Johnny Depp’s film efforts as Captain Jack Sparrow, but we don’t fault the game for that. It takes a nice theme and runs with it, living up to and perhaps beating the source material at everything it does. We can’t get over how much we like this game, as we are big pirate fans. Been swashbuckling since we were but wee kids.
Graphics in Jolly Roger's Jackpot Slots are really, really great. Everything is crisp, clear, colorful, and compelling to look at, which makes your time spent playing all the easier because of how easy they are on the eyes. It looks like a feature film, vividly painted for you to enjoy any time you’d like. The main character is a Disney knock off, but we almost like him better than the real version.
This is a well produced game on all fronts, with our pirate hates thoroughly off to the developers for putting so much love and effort into every pixel that you match. Even the UI looks amazing. We’re blown away.
Gameplay in Jolly Roger's Jackpot Slots is fairly standard, but still manages to be fun. At 5 reels and 50 pay lines, it does not break the mold there, chosing instead to keep things classy in ways we can respect.
Betting here ranges from a penny to $10, making this an accessible slot that anyone can jump into in hopes of winning a lot of money without worrying about necessarily breaking the bank in the process. Max bets cap out at $125, which tends to be how we rolled when we played it a bunch for our review.

Who is the Game NOT For?
Although we enjoy this slot, it is not for everybody. In particular, it may not be your cup of tea if this describes you in any fashion:
* Averse to winning money online
* Looking for something truly innovative in the genre
* You find the theme in any way offputting
Is it Buggy?
In the time we spent playing this game, we did not encounter any bugs, problems, or errors. The same cannot be said for all slots of this genre, so we commend the developers for a job well done on that. We also encountered no issues in processing winnings or payments, and everything ran very smooth just like you would expect across many varied devices in a variety of ecosystems and operating systems.
Jolly Roger's Jackpot Slots is the best pirate game we have ever played. And we have played a great deal of them. It’s phenomenally executed, looks superb, and we can’t fault it for anything at all. The gameplay is a little standard, but it makes it easier to immerse yourself in the artwork, so there’s that. We found ourselves staring at it in awe as money kept rolling in with spin after spin. Do yourself a favor and start this one up right now. You’ll love it, and have no regrets. If you don’t take it up with Jack. He seems like a nice guy, pirating aside.
