Redbeard & Co. slot game falls somewhere between Pragmatic Play’s classic slot games and its high-tech video slots. This pirate-themed title is no doubt an old fashioned game but it has plenty to offer by way of bonus features. In any case, its 3D visuals are well made and it has a good soundtrack complete with nautical sounds. What’s more, the game has features that appeal to beginners and experienced players alike. The game is now playable on all desktop and mobile devices and is available on many sites given that Pragmatic Play (Top Game) is a very popular gaming software developer.
Redbeard & Co. Slot Structure
Redbeard & Co. slot game has 5 reels and 20 adjustable pay lines. Wagers per line start at 1p and go all the way up to £5, which makes the maximum wager a fairly reasonable £100. In fact, it costs only 20p to activate all the pay lines, which makes the game ideal for beginners or people on tight budgets. The game gives payouts whenever two symbols land side by side from left to right. As a result, the game gives out wins fairly often.
The Redbeard & Co. slot game has two bonus features that are designed to liven up the proceedings. These include a free spins game and also a pick’em game that has very good prizes on offer. The pick’em game is launched when three pirate ship symbols land on the reels. Players are taken to an animated mini-game in which they must select one of five Pirates to throw a bomb to. If the bomb detonates in the pirate’s hand, then the player wins a prize and gets another chance to hurl a bomb. This game awards a maximum 3,975x the wagered amount, but this multiplier is only available when the bonus round is launched by all five pirate ship symbols landing on the reels. The prizes are smaller when the round is launched by fewer bonus symbols.
The free spins game is launched when at least three treasure chest symbols land on the five reels. This leads to 10 free spins being awarded. Getting four or five chest symbols results in 15 or 20 free spins respectively. The spins feature can be re-triggered once more during the game.
The Standard Wild Symbol
The pirate symbol is the game’s Wild and it can take the place of all other regular symbols in order to complete winning combinations. However, it cannot replace the bonus or the scatter symbols.
The Highest Paying Reel Symbols
The game’s jackpot is a whopping 8000 times the line bet, and it is paid out when the Captain Redbeard symbol lands on all 5 reels. Landing 2, 3, or 4 of these symbols results in a payout of 20, 200, or 400 coins respectively.
We thought that Redbeard & Co. was a good enough game but unfortunately it did have a few drawbacks that might irritate players, high rollers in particular. For one, we weren’t too impressed with its free spins feature because it didn’t offer multipliers. What’s more, it moves pretty slowly and the rounds tend to take ages to complete. The bonus game is quite good and it offers good multipliers that can change a player’s fortunes for the better. However, given its good prizes, this round doesn’t take place all that often.
Overall, this is a medium variance slot game. Players can try it out for a good time and a good crack at small to middling prizes if they are looking to build back their bankroll.
