Set Sail for Treasure with All41 Studios' Book of Captain Silver Slot
All41 Studios, in partnership with Microgaming, has recently released a pirate-themed slot game called Book of Captain Silver. The game is a classic “book of” slot games, with 5 reels, 3 rows, and 10 fixed paylines. The game is set on a ship, where players will find mouldy wooden planks, skulls, candles, and barrels of mystery cargo, making it a refreshing change from the usual deck setting. The game offers an RTP of 96.40%, and bets can range from 20 p/c to £/€25 per spin, making it accessible to all players.
The game's symbols include 10-A card royals, compasses, pistols, ships, and Captain Silver, with the latter being the highest-paying symbol. Wins can be triggered by landing at least two premiums or three low-pay symbols from left to right from the first reel. If five-of-a-kind premium symbols land on a payline, players can win 75 to 500 times the stake.
One of the game's main features is its free spins bonus round, where symbols are chosen to expand, potentially leading to big wins. The game also features four fixed jackpots that are displayed on the left-hand side of the screen, with multiples of the total stake. These jackpots can be won when scatter symbols land and a chest located beneath the reels is filled. Whenever a wild symbol lands, it is collected in the chest, which, when filled with wild scatters, grants a chance of triggering a spin of the jackpot wheel.
In the free spins round, the book symbol is used as both the wild and scatter symbol. As a wild, it replaces any paying symbol to complete regular line wins. As a scatter, 3, 4, or 5 in view award 10 free spins plus a payout of 2, 20, or 200 times the stake, respectively. Before free spins start, the book flips its pages to randomly select one of the high or low-pay symbols. After initial rewards have been paid out on a free spin, if the chosen symbol can create a win, it expands to fill all positions on its reel. Expanded symbols pay all lines from any position – they do not have to start on reel one and do not need to be adjacent to each other. Wilds cannot be picked to be expanding symbols, nor do they substitute expanded symbols either.
Overall, Book of Captain Silver is a satisfactory entry in the “book of” slot game genre, using pirates rather than Pharaohs and Egyptian Gods to theme the action. Although some players may find the background imagery a bit dingy, it's a refreshing change from the usual deck setting. The jackpot feature proved extremely tricky to activate, but the free spins round was more rewarding, and the expanding symbols feature is a nice touch. The game is highly volatile, with a win occurring every three spins or so, or 30.71% of the time to be exact. With its wide range of betting options, this game is sure to be a hit with all types of players, especially those who love pirate-themed slot games.
