Free Burning Ocean Slot Machine - Instant Play Game
Please Choose an Option:
Pirates! You may not love them, but you’ve certainly heard of them. On one hand, they’re heartless wretches that raid and steal from the innocent to line their own pockets. But they’re also relentless privateers who will do anything to preserve their own freedom! They sail across the world’s oceans, seeking adventure and loot wherever it may come from. And today, IGT lets you travel with one such crew! Cross your fingers and hope you get lucky, because there’s a big prize waiting for you!
From the information we’ve found, it seems like Burning Ocean was launched somewhere in 2009. And looking at the graphics, we most certainly believe it! The game looks fine so long as you keep it to a small screen. But try and increase the size to something bigger, and every immediately becomes blurry! Even if we ignore this, there’s also an absence of an interesting background. All we get is a cyan background which is supposed to emulate being underwater. Not very interesting!
This would be the part where we praise the gameplay, but we can’t say we’re huge fans of this release. At first glance, it has all the important elements. There’s a 4x3 board with 25 fixed paylines which cannot be turned on or off. There’s several bonuses which can be used to net you some good prizes. Even the winning potential isn’t half bad. Our gripe lies with the special features, and how utterly dull they are. The only real bonus is a 2x multiplier that’s sometimes applied to playing card royals.
There’s no way to directly change your total bet in this slot. Instead, you adjust the coin value and the numbers of credits per spin, and your wager adjusts accordingly. What does this mean for your total stake? Well, it means that it can reach a minimum of GBP 0.05, and a maximum of GBP 50 on each spin. It’s a decent betting spread, and a great deal for casual players! Five cents for twenty-five paylines? That’s an outright steal!
And while there’s no progressive jackpot, you do have a decent shot at winning big. Your best, and if we’re honest, only hope is to cross your fingers that you find four mystery notes. That places your maximum win at 6400 coins, which translates into GBP 6400 if you play at max bet. So the jackpot only goes up to 128x your total stake, which is… not that great. The end goal is to try and accumulate lots of smaller wins and roll them into one big one. We were also unable to find any information about Burning Ocean’s RTP, which is a major red flag.

IGT’s release has only one special feature. Randomly, playing card royals have a chance of appearing with a 2x multiplier attached. And while this does increase your wins if you manage to land one, it’s hardly the most engaging bonus. There’s technically one more, but we’re a bit sceptical to call this a special feature.
So what is this other mystery not-bonus? Well, it’s the gamble! After a win, you can collect your win, or try to increase it. To increase it, you have to guess the colour of the face down card correctly. Do it right, and you double your prize and get to try again. But if you fail even once? Then you lose everything, including that initial win! It’s a high risk, high reward special feature.
It’s not often you see a pirate slot get sank this badly. We wanted to like Burning Ocean, we really did. But it failed to impress at every corner. The outdated graphics will undoubtedly drive off a large section of gamblers. But the absence of any substantial special feature is what sealed the nail in the coffin for us. With nothing fun to break up the monotony of spinning, we found ourselves frequently tabbing out while playing this game. If there was a big win, we don’t doubt some players would grind it regardless for a shot at that jackpot. But your maximum prize is only 128x your total stake, which is abysmally low.
