Sea Captain from RTG
Sea Captain is a jaunty nautical themed online progressive video slot from Real Time Gaming. The main character is a stereotypical sea captain complete with a pipe that would not be out of place next to Popeye.
The story line centres on helping the captain to sail around the world and find treasures along the way. The sea faring theme carries throughout the game, from the Caribbean music, to the symbols, to the school of fish constantly swimming at the bottom of the screen. As with all of Real Time Gaming’s progressive slots, the graphics are dazzling and some of these are animated. The sound is crystal clear and the story line immersing.
Symbols, Scattered and Wild
The symbols in Sea Captain are as expected with a nautical theme, incorporating worms on a hook, anchors, fish, rope and a boat. The wild symbol is a large and friendly giant squid. Usually feared by sailors, in this instance the squid can substitute for any other symbol as well as doubling your winning line. The squid can appear grouped in both reels two and four and as mentioned substitutes for any other symbol except the scatter.
Not surprisingly, the scatter symbol is the Sea Captain himself. The scatter wins are added to the payline wins, and multiplied by the total bet. The scatter symbol can appear anywhere in the reels, but must be counted from left to right. When this happens the reels will pay out up to 200x your bet. If three or more Sea Captain appear anywhere on the game a number of free spins with a multiplier will be won. If the scatter symbol appears again during those free spins, anywhere, even one, an additional free spin will be awarded.
The highest paying symbol on the game that is not wild or scattered is the Boat symbol. The Sea Captains top payout can be achieved by finding four ship symbols on the screen with the squid wild symbol substituting for the last ship. The second highest is the lighthouse.
Free Spins and Progressive Jackpot
As mentioned above, free spins in Sea Captain can be triggered by the wild symbol, which is the Sea Captain symbol himself. The free spins feature can only be triggered one at a time and cannot be retriggered.
Free spins are pay out at the paylines and bet of the triggered spin. Sea Captain does not feature a bonus game, but if a player wins the progressive jackpot, they won’t be complaining, lack of bonus game or not. The Progressive Jackpot us triggered randomly, and so can be won at any time on any spin whilst playing the Sea Captain game. These wins are added to other wins.
Worth noting is the Auto Feature function. This can be fund under its own tab at the top of the game. The feature allows the player to set all parameters, and allow the game to play by its self. You can set it to stop if the jackpot is won, but if it is not won then the game will continue until all funds are exhausted unless a particular amount is stipulated by the player. A turbo play option is also available to speed the game up if a player is simply after winning and not the playing experience itself.
