Pros and cons

Admiral Nelson Slot Review

Itching to see what the greatest Admiral of all times is up to? This British hero and his naval forces are the subject for this Amatic slot. Admiral Nelson brings some interesting nautical themes on the reels. Naval action isn’t the most common theme, so whether or not you’re into classical slots, you’re sure to get an interesting experience here.

The ships of line take to the reels, together with some interesting characters. Meanwhile, the background is filled up with all sorts of regalia that only sailors have a name for. The style is definitely a throwback to older times too, with the symbols made for terminals and cabinet games rather than modern online slots. Once you get used to them, the real details start to shine through. Animations are simple, yet entertaining.

When it comes to the theme there aren’t many games like this. Sure enough, you can find some that set you sailing on the seas, such as Wild Seas by Elk Studios, and countless other pirate games. On the other hand, the classic ten paylines on five reels is a more common feature, and present in almost all Amatic games.

Without a doubt, the graphics in Admiral Nelson are a bit too outdated for some folks. Likewise, the lack of proper mobile support is a bit of a minus. But if that doesn’t bother you, then this is a game you will greatly enjoy playing. Mostly thanks to the interesting wins, easy bonus features and an excellent return to player.

How to Play Admiral Nelson

Admiral Nelson game uses the same setup that you might have run into on other Amatic games. That is five reels with three symbol positions each. Through these run ten paylines, from left to right. Score enough matching symbols on any of those lines and you’ve got yourself a win. Easy enough, right?

You can choose between how many of the ten paylines are active, though not which ones. The bet can be set between one and 50 coins per line, which usually means a minimum bet of 0.01 per round.

Press Start to spin the reels, not Autostart to make the wheel go round and round automatically.

There’s a bit of that old-time feeling with the symbols, especially the playing cards, which are styled after a much more classic look. Other icons include the admiral himself, his apparent love interest, ships, anchor and a compass, all the things you need to sail on the open seas. There are a couple of specials too:

  • Wild – Without a doubt the most valuable symbol in the game. No need for substitutions, when five of these alone pay up to 5000x your line bet.
  • Scatter – This one too pays out up to 1000x times the line bet, and together with Admiral Nelson even more.
  • Ships – Not only are these used to sail the seas, but in this game they also bestow some free spins upon you.

Game Rules

Admiral Nelson Slot Features

Amatic has chosen, like their other games, to go heavy with paytable wins. This means that the features are in a supporting role. The wild is a very useful symbol, and a very lucrative one. So is the scatter, which doesn’t require paylines to pay out.

The main special comes in the form of bonus spins, which are activated with the help of ships. You also have the possibility of increasing your wins with the gamble function.


Whenever the scatters, which are depicted as cannons, show up together with the Nelson symbol, all scatter wins are doubled. This is a rather simple and subjective feature, but it can obviously lead to massive wins.

Bonus Spins

The main feature found in this game. When three ships show up on any position during the same spin you will immediately win 10 times your total bet. After that, you get ten bonus spins. The ships will turn into wilds during these spins, substituting for all other symbols. The spins play out and you return to the normal reels.

Free spins

If you have played Amatic slots before you might be familiar with this classic feature. Whenever you score a win you have the chance to enter the gamble function. Here you need to guess what colour or what suite the next card is. If you guess the right suit your win will be quadrupled, and if you guess the right colour your winnings will be doubled. In both cases, a wrong guess will lead to a loss of the prize.
