Shiver Me Feathers is a both a bird and a pirate themed title, a mix that is not exactly unusual, not since parrots are so often associated with the pirate life. The slot is a cute one, and more original than many other pirate games get, while graphics include a combination of properly drawn icons and poker cards which look a lot less interesting. The pirate theme is accompanied by the Captain Symbol wild, the scattered Chest, and there is a bonus game as well in there. This slot presents you with a 5 reel layout, with 3 symbols on each one, plus a total of 25 lines for combinations to form on. There is also a jackpot of $30,000, for you to go after.
Betting and Prizes
With a total of 25 pay lines in play, should you decide to cover them all with your bet, you will have to use at least 25 coins per spin. You can take it even higher though, the maximum wager having 500 coins in it. Next, you choose what those coins will be worth, and know that the range for them is between $0.01 and $0.25. You can’t spend more than $5 for one line, or $125 for all of them.
Apparently, a 6,000x top prize awaits for you inside, which should mean up to $30,000 cash, at the maximum line bet.
Shiver Me Feathers Slot Features
Captain Symbol, as the red parrot character seems to be called, will act as a substituting icon, one which can be combined with any type of symbol, if it gets you a new paying combo. It doesn’t replace scatters, and it does form combinations with wilds alone, paying as much as 6,000x when this happens.
The Chest is a scattered symbol, which doesn’t really care where it lands on the reels. All you need is for at least two of these to be in position somewhere, and a prize will be yours. The more such symbols are present, the bigger the prize, going up to 100x total bet.
The bonus game, the final feature of Shiver Me Feathers, is activated by the presence of scattered Chest symbols, on the 1st and 5th reels during the same round. Six treasure chests are shown on a beach, on a new screen, and you pick two of them, to show you the number of free spins and the multiplier that will be used for that feature.
Theme & Design
The pirate theme is not that special, it has been used too many times in the past, but it will work well enough for most players, and generally you end up with great designs from these Microgaming online slot. Shiver Me Feathers slot is not as good looking as other games from this category, but it’s still better than the average slot machine. Symbols have for you images of parrots dressed as pirates, with treasure chests, crabs, pirate flags, treasure maps and the usual range of poker cards.
Shiver Me Feathers has an interesting enough theme and set of features, and even decent graphics, but I’d still call it average for the pirate theme category, where there are a lot of titles of even higher quality.
