The Blackbeard slot is played on 20 paylines, which means you can land wins on 20 different types of combinations. It's also played on five reels and three rows, and this is the standard playing area for most online slots. You can land winning combinations on this slot when you land three or more symbols aligned to any of the paylines.
The symbols in your win must go from the leftmost reel to the right and run on adjacent reels. When you land a win on any of the paylines, your win will be multiplied by the bet per line. The bet per line is the total bet divided by the number of paylines, between €0.20 and €40. It's an ideal range for high rollers and low-budget players.
After placing your bet, you can click on the spin button at the side of the reels. It will spin the reels for you once, while the autoplay feature spins the reels automatically.
The symbols you will see while you play the Blackbeard slot will increase your winning chances and offer you top payouts. The slot features a WILD, BONUS, PIRATE SPINS, SUPER SPINS, and SEA BATTLE, all acting as the special symbols of this slot.
The most valuable symbol on these reels is the Blackbeard icon, giving a payout of 25x, 10x, 2.5x, and 0.2x for landing five, four, three, and two symbols across the reels.
Next on the reels is the treasure chest symbol with a payout of 20x, 8x, and 2x. The skull will give a reward of 15x, 5x, and 1x for hitting five, four, and three symbols of a kind.
Then, we have the parrot and gun symbols offering the same rewards of 15x, 2x, and 0.4x when you hit five, four, and three symbols of a kind.
The low-paying symbols include K, Q, and J, and they all offer the same payouts of 10x, 1x, and 0.2x for five, four, and three symbols. Note that all line wins are a multiple of the total stake.
You can win big with the Blackbeard bonus features while enjoying the slot's gameplay. The game will reward you with bonuses starting with the wild symbol. The wild can substitute for other symbols on the reels to create a winning combination, except for the bonus symbol.
Then, if you land three bonus symbols anywhere on the first, third, and fifth reels, you will unlock the Blackbeard bonus game. You will pick any three bonus symbols, including PIRATE SPINS, SUPER SPINS, or SEA BATTLE.
In the Pirate Spins feature, you start the bonus game with three lives. As you play, you will fight against the ghost as it tries to take away your lives with the help of Blackbeard. You will get different cash prizes. You also get super wilds which will remain locked in place throughout the bonus round.
Next on the reels is the Sea Battle feature, where you fight against four pirates in the bonus game. Until Blackbeard and all his pirates are sunk, the reels will continue to spin. If you land the Blackbeard wild player or the Pirate wild, you get one extra shot to fight. It also offers increasing multipliers.
In the Super Spins feature (Blackbeard free spins), the bonus symbols turn to super wilds. The reels will spin once and can also do so additional times. You can also get flying skulls which will award you with cash prizes.
The Blackbeard RTP is set at 95.01%. This is in the decent range but is still below the industry average. The game also offers medium volatility, which means you get average wins coming in quite consistently.
