castaway-cove-slot-base-game

With a pirate theme, the Castaway Cove slot takes you to a stranded island (Castaway Cove). Pirates have washed up on the island’s shore after a ferocious storm shipwrecked the band of scallywags. Driven by a lust for wealth, they stumble upon a hidden trove of riches which include treasure chests overflowing with coins and precious gemstones.

With an idyllic, deserted island forming the backdrop, the shipwrecked pirate ship and treasure chests appear behind the reels. Symbols appear on the pirate ship’s sail which really ties the game into the theme.

The setting looks a little like the one in the Castaway film starring Tom Hanks but with a pirate twist. Audio-wise, the soundtrack is uplifting and triumphant.

On the reels, you’ll see 4 rings and 5 pirates. The Pirate Captain symbol is the best-paying awarding 4. 7.5, 15 or 30 x bet for 3, 4, 5 or 6 in combination.

Then you have the Pirate Skull Wild symbol that substitutes for all paying symbols above. 6 wilds in combination will pay 30 x your total bet. Look out for 5 different treasure chests that appear on reel 6 only. Finally, there is a Treasure Map Bonus Scatter that triggers the free spins

Castaway Cove Bonus Features

The Castaway Cove online slot comes with 2 or 3 bonus features. Treasure chests land on reel 6 with ruby ones worth 2,000 x bet. Then you have the Free Spins feature where coins are stored.

Treasure Chest feature

Keep an eye on reel 6 (the rightmost reel) where treasure chests can land. With 5 various treasure chests, they award prizes between 5 and 2,000 x your total bet. Here is what they are worth:

Free Spins feature

castaway-cove-slot-free-spins-feature

The Free Spins feature is triggered when 6 or more Treasure Map Bonus Scatter symbols land on the reels. With 10 free spins awarded, the map will guide you to the hidden cave.

A Blue Coin is stored in the area of each triggering scatter. Landing a Treasure Map Bonus Scatter will be stored as a Blue Coin when it lands. If this lands in a position where a Blue Coin is stored, the coin is upgraded to the next level. The higher the level, the more the coins are worth.

Once all free spins have been played, the coins will reveal a prize. During the final prize reveal, coins can reveal treasure chests. The Ruby Treasure Chest is worth up to 2,000 x your total bet.

Dream Drop Bonus feature

In the Dream Drop jackpot version, the Dream Drop Bonus feature is randomly triggered before any base game spin. With 5 jackpots to be won, you will see stone blocks or DD symbols appear. DD symbols stay in position while stone blocks are destroyed.

You will carry on spinning until 1 of the reels is filled with DD symbols. Once you do this, the corresponding jackpot is won:

Mega Jackpot €500,000 to €10 million
Major Jackpot At least €25,000
Maxi Jackpot At least €100
Midi Jackpot At least €5
Rapid Jackpot At least €1

The current real-time Mega Jackpot is worth £2,428,269.33.

Originality








The Castaway Cove slot follows on from the Mexican-themed Los Cuatro Esqueletos which was produced exclusively by Relax Gaming for Unibet Casino.

Even though there are lots of pirate-themed slots available online, Castaway Cove has a unique feel in the way the symbols appear on the pirate ship’s sail. Visually, there’s nothing to grumble about.

In terms of the gameplay, look out for treasure chests which are worth up to 2,000 x bet (for the Ruby Treasure Chest). In the Free Spins feature, the key is to store coins which can be upgraded. At the end of the feature, the coins will reveal prizes and treasure chests.

With Ruby Treasure Chests up for grabs, total wins can reach 4,364 x your total bet. A screen full of Pirate Skull Wilds and/or Pirate Captain symbols would theoretically lead to a 13,980 x bet payout which is obviously not possible.

In summary, the Castaway Cove slot is quite simple and doesn’t really stand out compared to the countless games with a similar theme. With a 96.13% RTP version available, Unibet has also opted to offer the 94% RTP version. At the time of writing, there is no Dream Drop version available either.

If you like exclusive slot releases, Relax Gaming and Unibet have teamed up a few times. The Blender Blitz slot is a relatively simple game but it does come with 25,000 x bet max wins. Reel Star Dream Drop is another basic game that offers you the chance to win the Dream Drop jackpots.

If it’s pirates you’re after, NetEnt’s Rage of the Seas is recommended as it comes with lots of bonus features, up to 5,488 ways to win and 27,440 x bet top payouts.

Pros
  • 5 fixed jackpots worth up to 2,000 x bet
  • Collect coins in free spins for prizes/jackpots
  • 5 progressive jackpots (in DD version)
Cons
  • Low max wins vs other Relax Gaming slots
  • Gameplay not original
