The slot doesn’t possess good graphics regards to symbols and I dare to say none of them is too nice and they also don’t surprise us in any way as we can play here with the very common ones like parrot, cannon, anchor, pirate flag, compass so it would be just another typical visualization if some designing work wouldn’t make the entire appearance still attractive.
Previously, I had some issues with interfaces where the symbols are not separated from each other in well-visible ways but at this game it isn’t a problem as the figures can form a real unit together and they’re easy to recognize them on the table because of the great old-fashioned map as the background image of the reel area which I really like how it looks like. The pictorial effects are even increased by the nice background picture that has awesome graphics as it illustrates pirate ships, palm trees and ocean. Overall, I like the atmosphere that this slot creates and I can only image what would it be if the symbols were also so impressive.
Pirate is the most coveted symbol at this 25-payline slot as we can achieve the best result by it in a 5 of kind type win when 10.000 coins are credited. I think this is the most positive quality of the game segment and other parts of it are just average at the best. The Black Beard character is the Wild but it only can replace other wins without paying by own or multiply the wins. 3 or more appearing Cannons on the screen can trigger free spins (with 5 such symbols we’re awarded 30 free spins which is quite good number of extra spins) but unfortunately the spins there are played with the same conditions as the triggering spin so no any multiplier or any other add-ons are involved during that sequence.
Treasure Chests are the bonus triggering icon which starts the ‘Pick a Chest’ extra and it’s not too hard figure out what kind of this bonus can be. If you think it is a simple ‘pick me’ secondary game you can’t go wrong with the idea, and every successfully selected chests hide a bonus credits which will be multiplied by the total bet at the end of the side game.
As you can see there’s nothing special in this slot and almost every feature has just ordinary quality but somehow while playing the game it isn’t so obvious and fortunately the game has the ability to be much better than that. Surprisingly, despite of the not too much specialties the slot gives back some nice winnings and seems to have a great rewarding abilities. My most profitable session came when I got an entry to the free spins and even if I knew the wins happen there more frequently but I didn’t expect what came. After just the second spin 4 more Scatters appeared on the reels so my total number of spins was almost 30. I started to get real excited and the fact that the spins there are not played using any multiplier value I really hoped that the game finally rewards me with something big. About the quarter of the given spins were just went by when I got a 5 of kind win with Pirate Flag icons that formed a V shape and the first, third and fifth reels contained Wild symbols in so lucky order to complete another full line win with this same symbols so that single spin awarded me 2x€100 and at the very end of that session I could reach the €250 plateau.
Of course that extra brought some very fortunate layout of symbols and maybe it was just a one-time wonder but the game is generally more profitable than I initially thought or what the paytable suggests. Every other quality of the product shows just ordinary abilities but luckily what the most counts, well, it’s really outstanding occasionally. No wonder, since my great run I always try this game for some spins if I’m around Saucify casino and even if I couldn’t go that far but I still got several appreciated results. Pieces of Eight is one of the few slot which could get above of my expectations and became a very positive surprise for me.
