Book symbols are used for the scatter in this title, triggering the free spins game mode if three or more land on the reels at once. 

Before the free spins feature begins, the compass hold & respin game mode will be presented. The compass of Tortuga will choose how many free spins are to be awarded to the player, in addition to selecting how many bonus features will be guaranteed to land in the game mode.

Players are initially awarded three respins with the respin counter resetting to three with every compass symbol that lands on the reels. Once these spins are over, the player will be awarded a subsequent amount of turns for the main free spins game. 

Once this free spins feature begins, bonus symbols are no longer evaluated along paylines, but are instead stamped onto the entire reel and evaluated with any gaps between paylines ignored.


Thomas Wendt, Co-Founder and Director at Apparat Gaming, stated: “The Black Book of Pirates promises to take players on a thrilling journey across the high seas and towards the stunning Caribbean caves.

“Led by the compass of Tortuga, they will discover great chances along the way including more bonus symbols than in any classical book game, which will add to their loot and help them on their ultimate quest towards big win treasure.

“This is our take on the pirate theme and, as with all Apparat Gaming titles, also includes the trademark German engineering quality and artistic flair to ensure a superior player experience with each spin.”
