The Captain's Treasure slots game can be found at Playtech casinos. Playtech do not publish the house edge of their games, however several established Playtech casinos have started releasing this information and on the CasinoMeister forum, the Boyle Casino Manager confirmed that Playtech slots games are not configurable at the operators end. As such, it is possible to identify that the house edge of Captain's Treasure is 2.94% and should be valid at all Playtech casinos. The house edge of the Bonus Ball side bet is 27.59%
Poster 'thelawnet' from the CasinoMeister and Wizard of Vegas message boards has looked at these figures for the Dollar Ball and believes there to be an error. By their calculations given the seed level (10000 coins) and contribution rate (10%) the figures should be 36.43% at the point where the Jackpot is reset and the average house edge across all Jackpot values would be 26.43%. The house edge at any given point is dependent on the Jackpot size with a larger jackpot resulting in a smaller house edge.

Captain’s Treasure had 5 reels, 9 paylines and you can bet one coin on each of the paylines.
The ‘Captain’ symbol is wild.
There is only one bonus feature when playing Captain’s Treasure and it is the Dollar Ball feature. You activate this feature by click the Dollar Ball logo at the top right of the reels. When you activate this feature you select five numbers from the numbers 1-49. When you spin the reels some symbols come out with numbers attached. The more numbers that match the numbers you picked the more you win. The house edge of this side game/bonus feature is 27.59% - there is no other description for this other than suicidal.
Other than the low house edge on offer, Captain’s Treasure has nothing else going for it. Its only bonus feature you’d have to be mental to play and the graphical interface is nothing to write home about.
