Edward Teach, otherwise known as the ferocious pirate famously known as Blackbeard, is the inspiration for this online video slot created by Amaya Gaming called Blackbeard’s Gold.
Blackbeard’s Gold is a five reel slot with three rows and 243 ways to win. There are no paylines and landing matching symbols from left to right would result in a payout. The metallic-framed reels spin against a backdrop of Blackbeard’s ship, which we presume is the Queen Anne’s Revenge, sailing on a calm sea under Caribbean skies.
In this game are entertaining graphics and smooth-rolling reels that just adds to the premium quality of the aesthetics to make Blackbeard's Gold a game that is a joy to play. Although the reels spin slowly compared to other offings, the slow thud as they land goes perfectly with the pirate theme. If you like movies like the popular Pirates of the Caribbean, then you will love this game.
Blackbeard’s Gold is good stuff and players would find the different features easy to trigger. The graphics are of a high quality and the various nautical sound effects are very entertaining.
There are six high-value symbols in this game and it includes a pirate flag, a glowing skull/cutlass, another pirate and a mystical-looking compass. The standard playing card symbols of 10, J, Q, K and A are the lower values. The treasure chest is wild, Blackbeard himself is the scatter and the three ships – the Revenge, the Victory and the Galleon – all have a huge role in the bonus features.
Blackbeard is the scatter symbol but if you can land three or more of him anywhere in view, those symbols would all turn wild and the payouts would be reassessed. This can result in some big wins.
This is initiated when the Revenge ship appears on reel one and the Galleon on reel five. Initially, you would be asked to select one of the five treasure chests on display that would determine the following free spins award:

Trigger this by landing the Revenge ship in reel one and the Victory on reel five. Now you must choose from one of the five chests on offer to determine the award which is a mix of the following:
On each spin up to three reels (excluding reel one) may turn completely wild. This feature can be re-triggered by landing the correct ships again during this round.
