Blackbeard’s Compass Slot Review
If you think you have what it takes to become a fearless pirate and sail the seven seas, looking for vast treasures, then you should consider joining the crew of the notorious Blackbeard, who is on a quest for discovering the treasure island. His Compass is there to help him, but he could also use your aid. Blackbeard’s Compass is a five-reel, 25-payline video slot that offers three interesting special features. Gamers can benefit from the Free Spins feature, the Pick Bonus, and the Transforming Symbols. Playable from £0.25 per spin, the 2019 release boasts colourful graphics and an engaging soundtrack.
Once you start spinning the reels, you will notice that the pirate ship has arrived to the treasure island. Captain Blackbeard has finally reached his destination. His First Officer appears to be a lady, even though it is bad luck to have women on the ship. The one-eyed Pirate is also there, and you will see a Ship Wheel and a Pirate Flag on the reels as well. Playing cards are used for low-paying symbols. The Compass is the Transforming Symbol, while the Treasure Chest is the Scatter that triggers the Free Spins feature. As for the Map, it is used as the Scatter that triggers the Pick Bonus.
Life on the sea is rough, but Captain Blackbeard is not that strict when it comes to the rules of the game. The 1×2 Gaming title features five reels, three rows and benefits from 25 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts. Betting is fixed at 25 coins per spin, but the coin denomination can be altered and players can wager as low as £0.25 and as high as £100 per single spin. Activate Quickspin Mode if you want to speed the reels up a bit. Use Autoplay when you get tired of hitting the Spin button.
First, we will talk about the Compass and its ability to transform into different symbols. The Transforming Symbols feature is activated every time a Compass lands on the reels. All instences of the Compass on the reels will transform into instances of the same randomly chosen symbols, simply to help gamers land more wins.
The Free Spins feature is triggered when the Treasure Chest Scatters land on reels 1, 3, and 5. Gamers get 10 freebies. Also, the transforming symbols will have the ability to stick around for more than one free spin. Finally, there is the Pick Bonus, which is triggered when 3 Map Scatters appear on reels 2, 4, and 5. Get on the trail and collect instant prizes as you go.
The rumour among the pirates is that the maximum payout can offer up to 1,600 times the bet in a single spin. Set the bet to the max and you can pocket up to £160,000. The Transforming Symbols will help you land winning combos more easily, especially during the Free Spins feature, when they tend to stick around for more than one spin. Blackbeard’s Compass’ RTP is 96%.

Of course, not every punter is prepared to become a pirate and not every spinner feels good on the sea. Some of you might even get seasick, so our advice to you is to stay on the shore and play the 1×2 Gaming title on your desktops and on your handheld devices because the quality of the game is completely the same.

Everybody loves a good story that involves treasure chests and pirates on a quest. The 2019 release is a very good video slot, because it has a popular theme, boasts crisp, colourful graphics and a soundtrack that will definitely remind you of Pirates of the Caribbean. As for the features on the offer, the Free Spins feature and the Pick Bonus are quite common for 1×2 Gaming products. What we liked the most is the Transforming Symbols feature, when the Compass turns into different icons. Compass tends to land in stacks and proved to be extremely helpful when gamers need to land some rewarding payouts.
