Join the mysterious pirate Veronica, aka the Red Lady, for some swashbuckling action on the high seas in this volatile, 5 reel, 10 payline slot from Novomatic. The chief attraction in this pirate adventure is the bonus feature which offers 10 free spins with a special expanding symbol that can really get the doubloons flowing. Playable across all devices, set sail from between 10p and £50 per spin.

The visuals in Red Lady are strong, especially for a slot from the Novomatic stable – set against a classic sailing ship and flanked by a pair of impressive mastheads, the reels feature an assortment of pirate related regalia. You’ll see pistols, parrots and pirate ships alongside the Red Lady herself.

The imagery has a classic feel and is rather well done, complete with animations to greet your winning spins. The compass symbol is the game’s wild, substituting for everything – it’s also the scatter and the key to trigger the Free Games feature.

Land 3, 4 or 5 of the scatter symbol anywhere on the reels and you’ll be awarded 10 free spins. Before you start your free spins, 1 symbol will be chosen at random to become the special expanding symbol. Whenever this symbol lands during the feature, it will expand to fill the entire reel (or reels) in which it appears. It then pays out just like a normal symbol, even when the symbols aren’t adjacent to each other.

Buccaneering and pillaging was a notoriously high risk affair – the perils in Red Lady may not be quite so severe but it can be a dangerous proposition if your bankroll is slim. This is a volatile slot – expect lean spells when your spins will award very little. The upshot of course is that you can win a stack of coins on a single spin.

Trigger the bonus feature then land a high value expanding symbol though and there’s plenty of treasure to be had from this entertaining pirate adventure. It’s almost identical in terms of gameplay to the iconic Book of Ra Deluxe but with a pirate theme.
