Head to a tropical island

Set against a tropical island backdrop, you’ll see wooden style playing card symbols spinning around the reels. They’re joined by a Jolly Roger flag, a ship’s wheel and 3 members of the pirate crew. Captain Blackbeard is the most lucrative symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these on 1 of the game’s 25 paylines and you’ll receive an award of 1.4, 16 or 32 times your stake. There are some decent features on offer in Blackbeard’s Compass.

Transforming Symbols feature

First up is the Transforming Symbols feature - all instances of the compass symbol that land on the same spin all morph into the same matching symbol. A payout calculation is made with the new symbols in position.

Bonus feature

Then you have Bonus feature - this round is triggered by landing 3 of the treasure map bonus symbol anywhere on the reels on the same spin. Work your way around the trail, collecting cash prizes as you go.

Free Spins feature

Lastly, there’s the Free Spins feature - land the treasure chest symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin to trigger this feature. You’ll then go on to receive 10 free spins. The transforming compass symbols are in play during this round. Each time 1 appears, it locks in position and retains its magical transforming properties for a number of free spins.

Blackbeard’s Compass slot overview

The cartoon-style design isn’t quite as sharp as what we’ve seen in some similar slots. It does the job well enough though and the stirring backing track is a good fit. The gameplay is relatively simple but offers enough variety to keep things moving. Both the trail bonus and the free spins offer decent winning opportunities.

An early fall of transforming symbols in the free spins can really get the coins flowing. You can win up to 800 times your stake on every spin or free spin. There’s nothing revolutionary on offer in Blackbeard’s Compass. If you like the theme, then you’ll find plenty of alternatives like Thunderkick’s Riders of the Storm and Nolimit City’s Pixies vs Pirates.
