Captain's Quest: Treasure Island
Captain’s Quest: Treasure Island from Betsoft plays out on the vast seas in search of treasure hidden on an island.
If you close your eyes and click on any slot machine, you’ll most probably land on a pirate-themed one.
Although it is a dated theme, we promise you this online slot is the exception. It is to pirate slots what Jack Sparrow is to Disney.
Whereas other buccaneer adventure slots all seem dark and gloomy, this one is light and witty. Behold the beautiful parrot side-kick garbed in pirate paraphernalia and smoking a cigar.
Special features in the game are not so overwhelming that it takes from the main two features. Play commences on a 5×3 grid offering 10 paylines and an excellent jackpot of 25,280x your wager.
Loot and plunder your way to great wins when matching between 3 and 5 identical matches across the paylines.
You can start spinning from between $0.20 and $15 to receive features that include Treasure Reels with multipliers and Free Spins.
As you expect, the symbolism in this slot depicts all things pirate. The base game plays out on the pirate ship’s deck while the free spins feature takes place on Treasure Island.
The low-value symbols are card suits that pay for 3 to 5 identical matches on any paylines. The Clubs and Spades symbols pay even money. Whilst the Heart and Diamond suit symbols award 2x and 2.5x your wager.
The high-value symbols are beautifully detailed and kick off with a Brass Spyglass worth 3x for 5. Then follows the charismatic Parrot, Death Scull/Helm combination symbol, and the Treasure Chest.
They award a maximum of 4x, 5x, and 7.5x your wager in ascending order. The Pirate Captain offers more than just a matching payout up to 100x.
He is also the wild symbol that unlocks all the magic of this slot game. He looks dashing with his hook and sword while smoking a gold pipe.
The slot announces big wins by shooting off two cannons into the night sky. A bit of a theatrical marvel if you will.
This feature activates as soon as the Captain Wild symbol partially covers any reels. He’ll stomp his foot on the tile’s base to move down across the entire reel and make it fully wild.
Don’t be surprised when he hits the top of the tile to push upward and fill the reel from the bottom as well.
Now, the Captain Wild symbol stands 3 rows high after nudging other symbols out of his way. He proceeds to substitute the remaining symbols and creates maximum winning combinations.
Once you get into the Free Spins feature, the Nudging Wild Captain keeps showing up to enhance the rounds.
As soon as you land 3 or more Wild Reels, you receive 10 free spins. Now all reels containing the Wild symbol become Treasure Reels that apply multipliers from 2x to 5x.
Play in the free spins commences with a 2x multiplier. As more wilds land on a Treasure reel, the multiplier adds 1x more multiplier.
If you land more than 1x Treasure Reel, the multipliers multiply by each other. For instance, landing wilds on 3 treasure reels with a 2x, 4x, and 5x multiplier pays a total of 40x (2x4x5).
Unfortunately, the free spins cannot retrigger during this feature. However, the 10x you receive brings more than enough action to the reels.
You can pirate your way into the Free Spins feature with the following options. Pay 78.50x your bet for 10 free spins and 3x Wild Reels features.
If you prefer an additional Wild Reels feature with 10 free spins, it will cost you 138x. For 5x Wild Reels and 10x free spins, you’ll be out of pocket 255x the bet.
The Free Spins continue at the amount you bet when the bonus round triggers. New wilds landing on Treasure Reels activates the first multiplier that evaluates the win in that spin.
So, all wins with wilds in this mode multiply by the reel multiplier to increase your prizes substantially. This might sound glib, but we wouldn’t mention it if it were untrue.
The symbols and animations are so spectacular that they distracted us. For example, when the Pirate Captain stamps his foot to nudge the reel down.
The impact is so significant that his tricorn hat falls onto his head a split second later. So, we suggest you play this slot in demo mode to take it all in before playing for real money.
The Free Spins feature activates more often than you’d think, and additional wilds make for a pretty nice payday.
Welcoming you to the slot, the Pirate Captain takes to the stage with a hearty laugh. We love this game and feel for high rollers who feel limited by its low bet maximum of $15.
Regular players will flock to this slot like rats to the Pied Piper. Its excellent RTP percentage and medium variance mean lots of nice wins.
Nudging Wild Reels and Free Spins with wild multipliers is just enough action for a pirate slot. The chance multiplier increase on all 5 Wild Reels is the ultimate treasure for slot lovers.
