Jim Hawkins, Long John Silver and Captain Flint all make an appearance in this bonus game heavy Treasure Island mobile slot.
And by god are there a lot of different features here. So many, you’ll have to read our section below to get them all, as we will only go through them here briefly.
Needless to say, this, like many other Quickspin slots is beautiful. With 40 paylines and sitting on 5×4 reels, even the Ace to 10 symbols are prettily printed on the background of a treasure map.
However, much like the book that inspired it, this is more of a frolicking adventure, than a real treasure hunt.
Before we start breaking down this Treasure Island slot, we should say that we didn’t have bad luck whilst playing it. Quite the contrary in fact. We got a couple of decent 30x and 40x our bet wins, and were, if not massively up, then not down on our budget.
But that’s part of the problem we had.
It’s hard to get excited when you get a stacked wild, and then 5 extra ‘pirate attack’ wilds on screen, and only win… 20 times our bet? Really?
The animations and excitement you first get as you discover these slot bonus features, from a click me feature that pays barely 5x times your bet, to a constant array of wilds, slowly dies down as you realise that short of a screen full of wilds, getting 100 times your bet or more is short of impossible.
This game is redeemed slightly when you get to the free spins… but they don’t get here often, and even then it’s no guarantee.
Reason is, whilst the game promises you can get extra wilds, super wilds and locking barrel wilds – it also very clearly states that you’ll only be given one of these three features.
Which, if it’s the super wilds, can be good, but again, it mostly feels like you’re spinning for the sake of spinning.
For our money, we had far more fun playing on the beautiful, but slightly more rewarding, Firestorm slot.

Stacked Wilds: The treasure chest is wild and replaces all other symbols except bonus scatter and barrel wild. They also come stacked as an added extra.
Barrel Wilds and Pirate Attacks: There is a second wild on these reels, and that's the TNT barrel. On it's own, it replaces all other symbols, but if you get two or more on the reels you trigger the pirate attack bonus.
Here, the shop will shoot 2 or 3 cannonballs on screen creating extra wild symbols on the reel. If the cannonball shoots down a TNT wild (which is usual), you get 2 extra wilds, instead of one.
Bonus Scatter Pick: If you find three compass symbols on screen, you get to pick one of the three for a mystery prize of:
You'll mostly get option 1 and 3.
The Treasure Hunt: Here you play as Jim Hawkins as you try and dig for treasure. You have 2 shovels, and five 'X marks the spot'.
Under the X hides instant cash, and you'll be lucky to walk away with 10x your bet - mostly around 4x to 5x is a good average.
The Free Spins Bonus: If you manage to find the free spins in the bonus scatter pick, you'll be taken to a second screen full of little islands.
Here you'll get either extra free spins, cash prize win, or one extra feature, until you find a 'start free spins' island.
The extra feature are the interesting part, as you can win:
You will only ever get one of these 3 features. How many free spins will you play? We've had about 10 to 14 on average - more could be possible we guess?
The Treasure Island mobile slot is pretty enough, and to give it credit, has plenty of features that keeps you distracted from the fact you're not winning much - but we suppose - not losing much either.
That said, if you want a pretty fairytale, at least the Crystal Queen slot has some fun multipliers and unique gameplay. Just saying... in case you wanted to see what Quickspin can really do.
