Quickspin-powered Treasure Island Slot is a five-reel, four-row slot played over 40 Paylines which takes pirates, the Pacific islands and the Robert Louis Stevenson adventure novel as its inspirations. The Stockholm-based gaming studio loves a strong story, and this one’s no exception!
The reels are set against the backdrop of a beautiful tropical bay, while the jaunty music incorporates cannon shots, water splashing sounds and fanfares each time you score a win.
How to play
Adjust your bets in the standard fashion; you’ll find all the usual controls including Spin and Autoplay here. Set sail in this game from the slightly more expensive than the usual price of 50p a spin to up to £100 each go.
Symbols include famous characters from the tale, including Captain Flint, Jim Hawkins and, naturally, Long John Silver. Meanwhile, the typically lower-paying playing card values are here, set against a map background.
Treasure Island Slot special features
The treasure chest symbol serves as the Wild here, as ever replacing all other icons bar two – the Scatter (a compass) and the second Wild, a barrel. Land five regular Wilds on a Payline to rake in 500 coins.
Three Scatters are your ticket to this perk, a mini-game in which you have to pick one of those Scatters to trigger an instant win via one of the following:
- Treasure Hunt bonus
- Free spins
If you end up with this option, you’ll first need to do the Island Hop bonus, which is another picking mini-game featuring more free whirls and extra Wilds (Long John Silver, Jim Hawkins and Captain Flint can become Wild). It determines how many free spins you’ll get.
Barrel Wilds stay locked for as long as the free spins continue.
The Treasure Hunt option presents you with a map offering five ‘X marks the spot’ options. Select two of them in exchange for great cash prizes, especially if you find Ben Gunn’s cave. (However, don’t expect winnings here to be huge.)
You’ll get a couple of shovels for digging – and if you hit the treasure spot, choose between three chests for an extra reward. This round finishes once you’ve used both spades.
Pirate Attack feature
This activates when you land at least two barrel Wilds wherever you like on the reels. A pirate ship appears and will fire two or three cannonballs onto the reels, converting whichever symbol they land on to a Wild. If the symbol fired on happens to be a barrel Wild, expect explosive action as you bag extra Wilds to land more wins.
The maximum you can win playing Treasure Island is 1,785x stake.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player is particularly generous at 97.07%, while the variance in this game is just on the higher side of medium, meaning you should feel you get plenty of play for your cash.
Clearly, the pirate theme has been heavily plundered by game creators before. But in this feature-rich game, you can expect this operator’s trademark top-notch graphics, complete with a cartoon-style feel, plus some great bonus perks, to give a fresh take on the concept.
Try it in free demo mode first before parting with any pieces of eight – and see whether it shivers your timbers!
