Blackbeard's Bounty slot machine is a good example of a pirate genre. The game has 5 reels and 25 adjustable paylines. There is an opportunity to get wins with multipliers of up to x100 for every spin; and this is not the limit, because the game has a lot of bonuses and pleasant opportunities.
Blackbeard’s Bounty uses a simple and convenient way to control the number of active paylines. To do it you just need to use the Lines menu. It has the keys “-” and “+”, which allow choosing a number from 1 to 25. In the Coin menu you’ll be able to adjust the amount of the line bet which must be specified using the game currency. By using it, the gambler can bet from 1 to 5 virtual coins on each of the paylines. The value of each virtual coin is equals to 2 credits. Thus, the minimum total bet is equal to two credits, and the maximum is 250 credits. In the “Bet” tab, you’ll be able to find out the total amount of virtual coins that was deposited.
The following keys are on the control interface of Blackbeard’s Bounty:
The user needs to collect 3, 4 or 5 identical images on any of the active paylines to win.
There are 9 icons in the Blackbeard’s Bounty video slot. A wild symbol is in the shape of a portrait of a pirate with a hook. In winning combinations it replaces any icons except bonuses. The multipliers for the wild symbol are 50, 100, and 200. It acquires its own special function when a player accumulates the required number of points. They are awarded every time when at least three images of the chest appear on the reels. The counter is located in the lower right corner of the playing zone.
There are two more icons in Blackbeard’s Bounty that progress according to this principle. They are an image of a pirate with long red hair (multipliers 30, 80, and 120) and a gray-haired sea wolf (multipliers 25, 50, and 100). Characteristics of these symbols will be described in more detail in the next part of the review. The combinations of icons in the shape of a compass multiply a linear bet by 25, 50, and 100 times. Multipliers for a hook are 20, 40, and 60, and for a coin — 10, 20, and 40. The symbol in the shape of a barrel has the lowest multipliers — 5, 10, and 30.
The icon of the gray-haired pirate can activate the bonus round during which you’ll get free spins. This happens when 4 such icons appear on the payline. After that 4 free spins begin. A portrait of a long-haired young pirate activates a bonus game. If you want to play this game then at least 4 of these symbols must appear anywhere on the playing field. During this round the player will take part in a sea battle.
A combination of 4 or more compass images on an active payline triggers another bonus game. It is dedicated to the pirate`s adventure on the treasure island. The symbol in the shape of a hook, which appeared in an amount of 4 or more on an active payline activates the bonus round with a selection of items.
When all paylines are activated in Blackbeard’s Bounty, the chances of winning are maximized. It is important to pay attention to the amount of bonus points. As their number increases, it is recommended to increase the bet. Under these circumstances you can gain the maximum benefit from the prize functions.
