Pirate From The East Slot
The Pirate from the East slot is a September 2019 slot release from NetEnt with an Asian pirate theme. Both Asian- and Pirate-themed slots tend to be popular so combining them seems an OK move on NetEnt's part.
What is the RTP of Pirate From The East? The game comes with an industry-standard RTP of 96.38% and is a highly volatile game with a max win of 2.400 the bet size. It is played on a 5x3 setup and 15 fixed paylines.
It comes with a wild symbol that multiplies all wins in which it features by a factor of 3 and a scatter triggered free spins round with additional multipliers.
NetEnt fans might find themselves feeling a touch of déjà vu when playing this slot as it is (theme and design aside) an identical clone of their popular 2010 release, Piggy Riches.
You can play Pirate from the East from 9th September 2019 from €0.15 to a max bet of €75 a spin at any online casino that has NetEnt slots in their portfolio.
Design & Symbols
NetEnt rarely releases a badly designed slot and Pirate from the East has a clean, crisp, and colourful cartoon design. The action takes place at the hull of a pirate ship. The gameboard appears to be a dog eared scroll or it could just as easily be the sail of the ship – both seem pretty ‘pirate-y’ so take your pick I guess?
Either side of the gameboard a row of canons can be seen. Each is numbered and represents one of the 15 paylines. The backdrop beyond the rigging of the ship is simply blue seas and blue skies. Other than the sound of the reels spinning, all you can hear is the gentle waves lapping against the side of the pirate ship.
Low-value symbols are the standard royals 10-A. The high-value symbols are represented by a jug of sake, a compass with oriental symbols, a knife and duelling pistol, a pirate ship and a treasure chest dripping with gold.
There's no treasure map, but that's okay when the treasure chest is the most valuable symbol, awarding 133.333x your stake for 5 on a payline. The wild is a male pirate and the scatter is a female pirate.
The wild certainly qualifies as a feature here but the primary bonus feature is the free spins round.
Whenever the wild symbol forms part of a winning combination, the win is multiplied by three. This occurs both in the main game and the bonus game.
Free Spins Feature
Landing 3 or more scatter symbols triggers a free spins round. Once triggered the scatter symbols reveal a number of free spins alongside a win multiplier. The higher the number of free spins offered, the lower the win multiplier will tend to be.
The maximum number of free spins is 28 and the maximum win multiplier is 6. You then choose which combo of spins and multipliers you’d like which essentially allows you to choose your volatility in the bonus game.
Once in the bonus round landing a scatter adds an extra free spin and a wild (as previously mentioned) forming part of a winning combination multiplies the win by 3x.

It’s been almost a decade since Piggy Riches, so repackaging it with a new theme is fair game for NetEnt. The game has certainly stood the test of time and I found ‘Pirate’ to be a very enjoyable slot.
There’s certainly nothing new here of course in terms of slot machines and innovation, and it’s one of the simpler online slots you’ll play but it has enough about it to keep you entertained. The wild multiplier guarantees some decent base game wins, while in the bonus game it can produce some huge scores.
Pirate from the East is never going to be a game-changer, and I would have liked to have seen a higher maximum win on offer, but as clones go it’s one of the better ones. If you’re a fan of Piggy Riches you’re bound to love this too. If you’ve never tried either game then I can certainly recommend giving it a go.
