Pirate Armada slot – it’s booty-ful!
Carl Marx had a bushy one, Abe Lincoln a lip-less one, Idris Elba rocks a well-groomed one while Harnaam Kaur has, well, a rather surprising one!
Say hello to the humble beard. Throughout history, men – and seemingly women, too – have cultivated face rugs, goatees, lamb chops, or the flamboyant Vandyke to give their look a bit of an edge.
There is, however, one man whose whiskers were so notorious, he’d eventually become known by them: Blackbeard. So join this rascal of the Seven Seas as we set sail on a journey in Pirate Armada slot!
Filibuster free spins and special bonus features
This 5-reel, 10-payline slot game from 1×2 Gaming has its reels filled with trouser-tent inducing pirate babes, mean-looking dudes, parrots, ships, treasure chests, skull Wilds, and of course Blackbeard – known to the world as Edward Teach.
Land 3, 4, or 5 of our dear Blackbeard on a payline and you’ll get a payout of 5, 10, or even 20x your stake! Winning combos come in when you land 3, 4, or 5 matching symbols or Wilds across a payline from left to right.
Other than this, there’s only one feature that adds a little pizzazz to the game. Land 3, 4, or 5 Scatters and you’ll get 6, 8, or 10 free spins! But 3 or more triggering Scatters also set off the Armada Treasure Chest Free Spins bonus feature where all Scatters get given a coin value. Now, these values combine into one sum upfront and it’s this amount that’s won each time you land a Scatter during the bonus round.
Unfortunately, that’s all that Pirate Armada slot has to offer. The bonus feature is OK, but it’s not the most engaging one we’ve ever experienced. Also, you’ll need some impressive Scatter coin values to be able to take advantage, which can leave you feeling disappointed for the most part.
While the design of the game is very detailed, with two pirate ships bobbing on the sapphire sea and intricately designed symbols on the reels, that’s not enough to offset the lack of features.
Additionally, the RTP is only 94.62% (which is below average), and the volatility is medium. This means your chances of landing that massive €110,000 are about as promising as Blackbeard getting a shave.
Head to the Seven Seas for swashbuckling wins!
So, what’s our verdict on this game? If you’re just looking to spend some time on a simple slot that won’t tax your grey matter too much, then this might be a welcome distraction.
If you’re looking for big wins or interesting features to keep you engaged, Pirate Armada slot will leave you wanting. Instead, rather try Blue Fortune slot, Wild Seas slot, or Pirate Gold Deluxe which will be sure to shiver your timbers!
