We’re back on the Seven Seas for another pirate themed game. ‘Captain Quid’s Treasure Quest’ from ITG is a fun game to play and that treasure quest might just win you a handy sum of cash too. Pirate games are far from short supply, and games such as ‘Chests of Plenty‘ and ‘Ghost Pirates‘ have proved very popular.
Piracy is always a fun theme for a slot game though I suspect most real-life pirates weren’t quite as friendly as this bunch. The game has a great look to it and in the background we have Captain’s Quid’s pirate ship with a skull and crossbones but there’s no sign of anyone being made to walk the plank.
This is a five-reel game that has a total of three rows of symbols and fifteen paylines. Playing the game isn’t too expensive with a top stake of £75. Simply decide on a stake you can afford to lose.
Symbols in the game include a compass, one of the crew, the pirate ship itself and of course Captain Quid. The wild symbol in this game is the Captain Quid’s Treasure Quest logo. This can get you some additional winning combinations as it has the ability to substitute for other symbols in the game. It’s not possible to substitute for the treasure chest scatter symbol which can trigger the bonus game in this slot. The rest of the symbols are the lower value ones and they are the ten to Ace playing cards.
The bonus game in ‘Captain Quid’s Treasure Quest’ is a bit complicated so it’s definitely a good idea to take a good look through the paytable and the game rules. That will really help you as you prepare to put your real cash balance at risk.
It’s also possible to set an autospin of between ten and fifty automated spins. That’s handy if you fancy some time away from the screen or just can’t be bothered to keep pressing the spin button.
There are some free spins available in this game. You need to get at least three of the treasure chest scatter symbols anywhere on the reels at the end of a spin. They can be anywhere on the reels so that means you don’t have to activate all of the paylines to be in with a chance.
Once that’s been achieved you start off with two free spins, a multiplier of 1x and a pick count of five for the second screen game. This mini-game sees you having to travel from one island to another. Simply click the ‘X’ on the first of the islands on the map and this may increase the number of free spins you get and your multiplier. You may also get an extra pick or an advance arrow that takes you to the next island on the map. Simply keep on making picks until they run out or you make it to the final island. If you managed to trigger this bonus round with four or five of the bonus symbols, then this increases the number of advance arrows and extra picks that are out there.
During the free spins all your wins are multiplied by whatever bonus multiplier you end up with. It’s also possible to retrigger more free spins if those scatter symbols turn up on the reels again.
Slot games that have a pirate theme always seem to be popular to play. It’s all those Pirate of the Caribbean films I guess, though I prefer ‘Blackbeard’s Ghost’ to be honest. This is another fun game and the theme is fairly well adhered to with an entertaining soundtrack. The bonus game is fun too and if you’re lucky in the mini-game then it can also be quite profitable. Definitely worth a play.
