Book of Captain Silver Slot (Microgaming)

Book of Captain Silver Slot (Microgaming)Microgaming has been quite busy in 2021, and the developer has partnered with different providers to keep us well entertained with new slot titles.

Book of Captain Silver is one of those titles that they developed in partnership with All41 Studios. Although I did not find the slot to be unique in terms of the theme and mechanics, the Book-style is always a fascinating thing, and that is why I took some time to try out this title.

Below is my review:

Game Set-Up

Book of Captain Silver uses 5x3 reels, with just 10 fixed pay lines.

The slot offers several special features like the mixed scatter/wilds, expanding free spins, and a random Jackpot Wheel.

Betting and Prizes

Irrespective of the wager picked, the slot offers a betting range of between $0.10 and $25 per spin.

The slot offers two types of big prizes, and for the regular one, the top symbols will deliver payments of up to 500x the stake, per line.

Chances that they can all payout at the same time are very high, and if this happens, you get to walk away with up to 5,000x the stake from a single round (during free spins).

The biggest jackpot on the slot is the Mega which is worth 10,000x the stake.

Like a majority of the Book slots that I have played, Book of Captain Silver is highly volatile, but it also offers a decent RTP of 96.40%.

Book of Captain Silver Features

The standard feature icon with these types of slots is the Book, and on this slot, it belongs to Captain Silver. It serves as a substitute, and with its help, I managed to form a couple of winning combos.

3 to 5 Books visible in the reels serve as scatters, and they have the potential to award you with up to 200x the stake, in addition to triggering 10 free spins.

Book releases work pretty much the same, and just as is the case with others, this one also has a special symbol that expands to form combinations.

Landing 3 to 5 of these on the 5 reels gave me 10 combinations of 3 to 5 icons.

A Jackpot Wheel can also be triggered, but this will only happen after you collect wild symbols. The wheel spins to disclose one of the four available fixed jackpots.

Theme & Design

The Book of Captain Silver correlates with the pirate ship, and this explains the dark and uninviting background.

I must admit that the dull design and interesting symbols did not work for me, but I appreciate the features that Microgaming has used.

Besides the low-value Royals (10 to A), other symbols present include images of a pirate ship, the Captain, a pistol, and a compass. There is a Book icon as well.

Conclusion

Book of Captain Silver has a lot to offer, and you will love it more if you enjoy Book-style slots.

Instead of the usual Ancient Egypt idea, Microgaming has switched to the pirates. It’s a great slot title but with high volatility, and I can only recommend it to professional gamers.
