The bonus feature selection includes tried and tested free spins alongside random jackpot prizes.
I observed Kraken coins showing up on the reels every few spins, but they didn’t appear to do much. Then, on one lucky spin, they activated a segmented bonus ship’s wheel that spun to award me a Mini, Minor, Major, or Mega jackpot prize worth 15x, 40x, 250x, or 5,000x my bet, respectively.
When I landed 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols, the bonus game launched where I was instantly awarded 6 free spins and a base win multiplier of 1x. The number of scatters corresponded to the number of feature picks I would receive. The first part of the bonus round was a pick-me game where I was presented with 9 sealed treasure chests.
I clicked on the number of chests that corresponded to my feature picks and received awards that included up to 9 extra free spins, up to a 3x additional win multiplier, or symbol conversions (high-value symbols upgraded to wilds or low-value symbols upgraded to high-value ones). Once the free spins sequence began, I was able to unlock even more feature picks by landing additional scatters. Landing 2, 3, 4, or 5 scatters gave me 1, 2, 3, or 4 additional feature picks, respectively.
Adventures of Captain Blackjack slot sails in already charted waters but delivers a stirring experience nonetheless. The game’s graphics are typically impressive for a Just For The Win title, with the accompanying sea shanty-style soundtrack enhancing the sense of adventure. The feature selection is fairly standard, with no modifiers to excite the base game. The only genuine excitement I felt was for the two-tier free spins feature where cracking open the chests to reveal my bonus round boosts added a real thrill to the gameplay experience that promised a top possible reward per spin of $250 000.
Overall this is a good game, but I wouldn’t go so far as to call it excellent as it covers old ground in an admittedly glossy and attractive way.
