Captain Quid’s Treasure Chest
Captain Quid’s Treasure Chest Slot Machine
For readers outside the UK, ‘Quid’ is a slang term for the British pound. This pirate themed video slot from IGT (International Game Technology) gives you the opportunity to win plenty of them. The action is based around the standard 5 reels, 15 line, setup. You can play up to 5 coins per line. There is a free spins feature which is preceded by a pick-em round. This involves treasure maps, though the spins / multipliers / advance concept is the same as the 50000 Pyramid game when you take away the different playing environment.
Graphically, this game is blocky and has a retro look and feel to it. The music is from the 1700’s, with noises which sound like digging for treasure when the reels stop. When you hit the free spins part, you’ll be treated to a lively sea shanty. There are also classic pirate sound effects, like the odd ‘Shiver me Timbers’ for a decent sized win.
Except for the two-stage bonus feature, this is a relatively simple slot. It might keep you entertained for a session or two – though with the only attraction the occasional big win from the bonus feature, it does not compete with many of today’s more interactive titles.
