Book of Captain Silver from All41 Studios is the latest to join the ranks of a plethora of Book Style games.
This time we’re shunning the conventional idea of an Egyptian theme in favour of a buccaneer adventure with none other than Captain Silver himself.
Anyone familiar with the Book style gameplay knows all too well how rich in potential these slots are, and with the added extra of Jackpots, Captain Silver may just well stand out as a cut above the rest.
Let’s set sail with this Book of Captain Silver Slot review and relive the tried and true ‘Book of’ gameplay on the high seas.
Book of Captain Silver Theme
Book of Captain Silver takes you to below deck where you’ll be teased with a big ol’ treasure chest that holds alluring jackpots.
In terms of visuals, the Treasure Chest is of course the main focal point, but you’ve got to appreciate the subtle attention to detail with all of the assets that gives Book of Captain Silver its Pirate persona.
The music for Book of Captain Silver does really well to compliment a Pirate Theme, and overall you feel like you’re right in the middle of a daring adventure.
Book of Captain Silver: Betting and Symbols
Betting options in Book of Captain Silver are broad enough to cater to every kind of player. The lowest option here is £/€0.10 per spin, and the highest option is £/€25 per spin. There are lots of different options in between the two, so pirates far and wide are welcome aboard in Book of Captain Silver.
When it comes to the symbols, the highest paying symbol is the man himself, Captain Silver. Following on from this is the Ship, The Pistol and the Compass.
Low paying symbols are Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10. The Book Symbol in Book of Captain Silver doubles up as both a Wild and a Scatter.
Book of Captain Silver: The Base Game and Features
Book of Captain Silver is a 5 reel slot with 10 fixed pay lines.
To form a win, you’ll need at least 2 of any high paying symbol or 3 of any low paying symbol to connect from left to right on adjacent reels across any of the set pay lines.
One of the biggest attractions of this type of slot is how great it can pay. A connection of the highest paying symbol pays 500x, and the other high paying symbols would do well to induce a hearty pirate cheer if you connected a full line too.
If you’ve played a book-style game before, and you probably have, then you’ll recognise this kind of gameplay instantly, but what you probably won’t recognise is the jackpot feature.
Captain’s Wheel Bonus
Every time you land a Wild Scatter, a coin will be added to the treasure chest below the reels.
Any Wild Scatter may trigger the Captains Wheel Bonus, which gives you a chance at one of the Jackpots.
- Mini Jackpot – 15x your bet
- Minor Jackpot – 50x your bet
- Major Jackpot – 500x your bet
- Mega Jackpot – 10,000x your bet
We tested this slot and it was no surprise to see that Mini Jackpot was often the result. Still, though, the pure excitement that comes with potentially landing one of the higher jackpots does well to add a little bit of extra flavour to a slot done so many times before.
Book of Captain Silver: Free Spins
3 or more Scatters trigger 10 Free Spins in Book of Captain Silver. Scatter Symbols also pay, so you may be able to bag yourself a little reward before the round even starts
- 3 Scatters – 2x
- 4 Scatters – 20x
- 5 Scatters – 200x
When you enter the Free Spins, a random symbol is picked.
This special symbol will act as the expanding symbol for the remainder of the bonus. 3 or more of any low paying symbols trigger an expansion, and 2 or more of any high paying symbols trigger an expansion.
Expanded symbols pay anywhere, so you need not worry about connection via a pay line to collect your winnings.
Book of Captain Silver: Our Verdict
Book of Captain Silver brings with it the exciting prospect of Jackpots, but if you’re a fan of Book Style gameplay, then you’ve definitely seen everything else it has to offer before.
The pirate theme does well to make it stand out a little bit when compared to a sea of slots that continue to use the Egyptian theme, but the gameplay concept is more of the same.
Book of Captain Silver is by no means a bad slot, quite the opposite in fact. The foundations of what would become one of the most popular slot mechanics were laid many aeons ago with Book of Ra and others like it, so you can’t really give too much praise to All41 Studios for gameplay here.
What you can praise them for, is the appealing design, seamless gameplay and Jackpot inclusion. 10,000x win potential and 96.40% RTP values makes Book of Silver look great statistically speaking, and with 2 avenues in which you can bag the top prize, Players may well prefer Book of Captain Silver to their current favourite Book style slot.
