Captain Venture Review
Captain Venture is a great little free slots game from Novomatic that is available now to play on our site. Fans of our games are sure to find something to love here, with a wide range of prizes, retro graphics and generous gameplay features.
Like a number of our other slots, Captain Venture is available to play on either browsers or mobile and tablet devices, making it equally suited to gaming at home or on the go.
As with most contemporary online slots, this game is made up of five reels with three rows each, laid out in a standard 5x3 configuration. There are up to 10 paylines which can be selected in series.
As mentioned above, a wide range of prizes are available to lucky players who manage to find two-, three-, four- and five-of-a-kind adjacent symbol matches from left to right on an active payline. In total there are 13 symbols, 11 of which are just regular sorts that award prizes and the remaining two being special types that award wild and scatter functionality.
The man in the hat and woman symbols are the most valuable regular types in the game, both awarding the same range of prizes. Finding five of these can potentially earn players a massive top prize of 400,000 credits when playing with the maximum bet.
Next up is the picture of the ship. This offers only slightly smaller top prizes of 300,000 credits. Way down at the other end of the scale are the lowly 'J', 'Q', '10' and '9' symbols, all of which offer the same higher level prizes up to a maximum of 80,000 credits for matching five.
Don't despair, though, as with numerous winning opportunities, and some very generous bonus features, even these smaller amounts can add up to something much, much bigger with continued play and just a little bit of perseverance.
First up among the special symbols is the wild, represented here by a long-haired man - most likely the titular Captain Venture. This functions as a substitute, which means that it can be used in place of any other symbol (except for the scatter) as part of a winning combination on an active payline.
Multiple wilds are also the key to unlocking this game's biggest jackpot. Finding five on a payline when playing with the maximum bet will result in a truly massive top prize of 10,000,000 credits! The second of the special symbols is the scatter - a picture of a captain's wheel. This awards generous prizes for appearing in any configuration - that is to say, regardless of position and selected paylines.
The highest possible scatter win is a giant 1,250,000 credits for finding five. In addition, the scatter is also the thing that unlocks this game's bonus free spins round. Finding three to five of these symbols will award players with up to 20 free spins, all of which are played with a 4x multiplier.
Additional free spins can be won, and all are played using the selected paylines and bet size of the regular spin that initially triggered the round.
