Pragmatic Play – Star Pirates Code – Free Slot Game

There are already many Starburst-inspired releases , but none of them compare to Star Pirates Code. Reel Kingdom didn’t exactly go overboard with creativity when designing this rather simple piece, however, but the mix of Starburst-inspired gems and pirate elements gets the job done without dazzling anyone.

You’ll have to endure plenty of dead spins with occasional smaller wins in between the compass-induced wild spins, which is the only feature. The big twist is that the compass needle determines which direction the Wilds expand (including diagonally), and all the action takes place on the 3 center reels as usual. The volatility is higher than Starburst , but the potential is boosted significantly accordingly.

Features of Star Pirates Code

Normal symbols pay out between 1.2 and 15 times your bet for 5 equals, and the treasure chest is the highest level symbol. However, this game is all about the Wild Compass Respin feature , and we’ll take a closer look at how it works below.

The compass symbol appears at random times on the 3 middle reels, and the compass needle spins to determine the direction of the following wild spread. When the compass lands in a corner, wilds can be spread both vertically, horizontally or diagonally, and the same is true when the compass lands in the center position.

However, in all other positions, the Wilds are expanded either horizontally or vertically in the direction of the arrow, and the compass itself also goes wild. All Wilds become sticky for one respin, and if you land a new Compass symbol, the process repeats with even more Wilds added for another Sticky Wild respin. When a wild is generated over a wild, the wild multiplier for that position increases by +1 and the feature ends if you don’t land any new compass symbols.

The 200 Spins Star Pirates Code Experience

The first half of our 4:18-minute highlights video contains nothing but dead spins and occasional low to decent payouts. In the second half of the video, however, we trigger some compass spins, and you can see for yourself how we fared by clicking the play button below.


The name of the game as well as the gems are clearly a tip of the hat to Starburst, the obvious source of inspiration for this Reel Kingdom release. Instead of the usual expanding Wilds respins that most copycat titles come with, you get different configurations of Wilds in this sequel. This makes each Compass Spins trigger less predictable, but also potentially less lucrative.

In Starburst and similar releases, you know that 3 respins in a row guarantees that the 3 middle reels will be wild on the last respin. This is not necessarily the case in Star Pirates Code, but you are compensated by a higher 2,500x potential. Of course, you pay the price in terms of volatility, and the maximum win is hard capped, so the feature ends when you hit it. You can expect a lot of dead spins here, and most of the payouts come from the respin triggers.
