Join a motley band of seafaring brigands on a quest for hidden gold in Treasure Island. Created by Quickspin, this 5 reel, 40 payline pirate-themed video slot is loosely based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel and comes with slick visuals and plenty of extras. Look out for stacked wilds, free spins with wild extras and a pick me treasure hunt. Play on all devices from between 50p and £100 per spin.
Like most games from Quickspin, there’s little to quibble about regarding the design. With a tropical cove in the background, you’ll see members of the pirate crew spinning around the reels alongside the usual playing cards. There’s also a wild that can land fully stacked and substitute for everything apart from the scatter. As we said in the intro, Quickspin has packed in a decent range of features here.
Pirate Attack feature – this is triggered when you land 2 or more barrel wilds on the same spin. 2 or 3 cannonballs are fired onto the reels with the symbols they land on turning wild. Hope to see the cannonball land on a barrel wild as this causes a chain reaction with even more wilds being added. A final payout calculation is then made with all the wilds in place.
Land 3 scatters on the same base game spin and you’ll win a cash prize or trigger the bonus picker where 1 of these 2 features is awarded.
Free Spins feature – before the round begins, you’ll take part in the Island Hop Bonus Game. Choose islands to reveal how many free spins you’ll receive. You can also add extra wilds (Jim Hawkins, Long John Silver and Captain Flint turn wild), extra stacks of Super Wilds or Locked Barrel Wilds. The round begins when you find the Start Free Spins icon.
Treasure Hunt Bonus feature – this is a classic free spins round. You’ll be offered 5 locations. Choose 2 of them, hopefully with buried treasure hidden.
The pirate theme is an enduringly popular one. There’s nothing too revolutionary on offer in Treasure Island but it remains an enjoyable game. The sound and visuals are well done and there’s a good range of extras. Variance wise, it’s in the middle with maximum wins of 1,844 times your total bet on each spin.
If you fancy a pirate themed title that still has the power to shiver your timbers then it’s certainly worth sailing to Treasure Island – I would also recommend NetEnt’s Ghost Pirates and Novomatic’s Red Lady.
