Casino games developer Habanero is taking players to the high seas with its new pirate-themed slot Scruffy Scallywags.

The 5x3 reel, 25-line slot follows the adventures of a band of pirates as they hunt down the fabled sea monster the Kraken.

Once discovered, the beast will award players with extra wilds on reels, while compasses that appear along the way offer up prizes such as multipliers, cash prizes and respins.

"With stunning graphics, crystal clear sounds and a gripping storyline to boot, Scruffy Scallywags is one of our most exciting titles to date," Habanero head of corporate communications Toni Karapetrov said.

"The thought of incredible riches and the mysterious Kraken is sure to excite players and we’re sure they’ll take to life on the ocean waves."

Scruffy Scallywags is the latest to be rolled out by Habanero in recent months, following the likes of The Dead Escape, Panda Panda, Bird of Thunder and Fire Rooster.
