There was once a pirate known as Blackbeard whose name was feared far and wide. He was brutal, wicked, charming and a right son of the devil. This fella eventually became one of the most famous and successful pirates ever.
Now, the exploits of this bloke and his merry crew of pirates have been told time without number in books, poetry, movies, documentaries, a few games and many an online slot. One such slot is the Blackbeard’s Quest, from the one and only Tom Horn Gaming. This slot is an uncomplicated affair where players can earn their own booty, courtesy of a 5,000 coin jackpot.
Read up on the review below and set sail for waters anew.
All Aboard For The Blackbeard’s Quest Slot
Blackbeard’s Quest is a Tom Horn Gaming creation and just like other slots and table games from the same company is a simple affair with barely much in the way of eye candy. The visuals here are reasonably detailed but are severely unlikely to win any awards and the setting is a tropical beach. Palms sway on either side of the reel set, with a soft and sandy beach occupying most of the foreground and the waters of what has to be a lagoon taking up the background.
The primary equipment of the Blackbeard’s Quest slot comes in the form of 5 reels, 3 rows and 9 paylines. The entire reels are fittingly constructed from what appears to be old wood, of the sort that is found in really old ships. At the bottom of the reels set can be found the gameplay buttons, with the Bet Max and Autoplay buttons being featured.
Icons on the reels include such worthies as playing card values, a treasure chest, a map, a galleon and images of Blackbeard himself and a young lass with lovely eyes. To form a winning combo with these icons, players must land a trio of matching icons anywhere within view.
Of the icons detailed above, the most valuable are Blackbeard and the lady, with these being worth 5,000 and 1,000 coins respectively when 5 of them are landed anywhere on the reels. The rest of the featured icons pay from 5 to 500 coins for 5 on a payline.
Blackbeard or Edward Teach also performs the role of the wild icon and is able to take the place of all the other icons except the scatter.
Free Spins - Landing a trio of the treasure chest icons that are the scatter triggers this feature. 10 free spins are awarded here, during which the triggering icons are transformed to wilds for enhanced winning chances.
Blackbeard’s Quest slot is an unpretentious affair that still manages to deliver a solid punch. Overall, it is a simple slot for those who like their action served hot and garnished with thrills and plunder aplenty.
