As the name suggests, the Treasure Island Slot game by Quickspin is based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s famous 1883 novel, which centres around battles in the Pacific Islands and the pirates and other characters that fought them.
The graphics, sounds and nautical background music are all of very high quality and go a long way to immersing players in this world of adventure. The icons and background images have an illustrated feel, with the higher-value reel icons being different characters from the story and the reels being set on a tropical island. The lower-value icons are the usual playing card symbols, and even they look like they might be found on a treasure map.
Scatters and Treasure Island Bonus
The Compass is the Scatter Symbol in the game, and triggers this Bonus Round if 3 land anywhere on Reels 1, 3 and 5 at the same time. Players then get to pick from the Compasses on the screen, and one of 3 possible Bonuses will be revealed. Players might get an Instant Win, which is as simple as it sounds, or they might win Free Spins or a chance to play the Treasure Hunt round.
In the case of Free Spins the Island Hop game will need to be played first to determine how many Free Spins and extra Wilds will be awarded, while for the Treasure Hunt game players will be taken to another Desert Island screen and will be able to choose 2 of 5 X marks. These will reveal different rewards, and one will yield 3 Treasure Chests. IF this happens, players will get to choose between them to win an even bigger prize. The level of detail in the game, especially in the Bonus Features, makes it really engaging and exciting for players.
The engaging theme of the game is carried through wherever possible, which makes things much more engaging and enjoyable for players at Lucky Nugget online gambling in Canada.
Basics of Treasure Island
The game has 40 paylines, which are played out across 5 reels and 4 rows, and boasts a theoretical RTP of 97.07, which is one of the highest seen in online Slots today. The reels can also be spun for free, or spun automatically using the AutoPlay feature, depending on what works best for players at the time. When using real money the betting range is 0.5 to 200, and so is suitable for almost every player. The top Jackpot in the base game is 150x the total stake, and the Special Features listed below make payouts even more likely and more worthwhile.
Wilds and Pirate Attacks
There are 2 Wild Symbols in Treasure Island: a Treasure Chest and a TNT barrel. The Chest can substitute for any regular reel symbol to create winning combinations, while when 2 or more Barrels appear at the same time anywhere on the reels the Pirate Attack Bonus Feature is launched.
The reels become invisible, and the only symbols that can be seen are the Wilds that triggered the round in the first place. A pirate ship in the background then fires cannonballs at the reels. Any invisible symbol that is hit becomes a Wild, and if the ball hits one of the already-present Wilds the symbol explodes into several of the same. Set up with all these new Wilds, the reels spin again and yield substantial wins.
