Blackbeard’s Compass

The pirating exploits of Edward Teach—the infamous pirate Blackbeard—within the Atlantic Ocean are thematized in Blackbeard’s Compass, an October 2019 video slot from developer 1X2 Gaming whose games Asgard Warriors (May 2021) and Pirate Armada (July 2021) are relatable.

Themes: marine navigation, treasure, and piracy. The ten regular symbols require three to five-of-a-kind in the 25 fixed rightward winning ways to regularly win its X5 to X800 payouts. General features: thirteen symbols, fifteen total bets, multipliers, sticky compasses, free games, and bonus game.

Blackbeard’s Compass Game Characteristics

A pirate ship docked in a mountainous shoreline—amid mossy trees, skulls, and parrots—are in the lush tropical background of the Blackbeard’s Compass’s translucent and unpartitioned 5X3 grid whose light purple frame is decorated with fancy skulls and swords.

The Blackbeard’s Compass total bets: $0.25 (minimum), $0.50, $1.00, $1.50, $2.00, $2.50, $3.00, $4.00, $5.00, $10.00, $15.00, $20.00, $30.00, $40.00, and $50.00 (maximum).

Blackbeard’s Compass has three special symbols, in fancy golden wooden frames: substituting golden wild compass; bonus game-triggering parchment yellow “bonus” treasure map, with black-marked and red-marked trails around an island—unearthing stacks of treasure chests offers wins with multipliers; and nightly free games-unlocking scatter—a “free spin” treasure chest.

Ordinary symbols: wooden values—violet-and-golden 10, yellow-and-golden J, blue-and-golden Q, green-and-golden K, and brown-and-golden A; tattered pirate flag; skull-embedded helm; eye-patched, clean-shaven and red-banded pirate; blonde (female) pirate; and the stereotypical Englishman Blackbeard.
