Gold slot review (Big Time Gaming)
The Gold slot is very much about, ahem … gold
Golden reels, golden symbols and the background music seemed very familiar, so I just had to look it up.
Once I found it, there was no surprise that the title of the song is, here is the tie-in, “Gold”.
The dreadful number by Spandau Ballet is also continuously heard throughout the gameplay.
Without the mute button, this review of the Gold slot would have been very brief. I am happy I didn’t base my opinion of this game solely on its looks and sound. That would have prevented me from discovering the potential 10,000 x total bet that can be won. With a prize like that, I will happily sing every line of this horrid number at the top of my longs.
The Gold slot had my attention at that point, so I delved a little deeper into the winning possibilities of this game.
How does the Gold slot work?
Gold is played with 20 fixed paylines and has 5 reels and 3 rows full of bling symbols that go with the theme. The minimum bet is $€ 0.20, while the maximum is up to $€ 500, per spin. Now that goes along well with a well-stocked video slot.
This slot is suitable for the more serious gambler but is certainly also accessible for the small time player.
The theoretical payout rate of 95.02% is seriously low for an online casino game. The variance we estimate to be medium.
Symbols and payouts
The golden symbols consist of bars of gold, a golden car, a golden credit card and gold jewellery.
The high-value symbols in the game are the gold bars and the golden car. With 5-of-a-kind of these, you will earn yourself 750 coins.
The golden ring, the gold watch and the golden credit card are the group of medium value symbols, and they can net you up to 400 coins with 5 of the same.
Even the oft used card symbols are modified and were dipped in gold. The 9, 10, J, Q, K and A are the low-value symbols and will pay out a maximum of 125 coins if you spin 5 identical ones on the reels.
The Wild symbol is a golden suitcase that opens up when it drops on the reels. The Wild symbol replaces all other symbols in the game except the scatter symbol. I will get back to what this scatter symbol can do for you later.
Good to know is that in the Gold slot all winning combinations are doubled with a Wild symbol.
Gold Bonus Feature
If you thought there was a lot of shiny gold in the primary game, you better put on your shades in the bonus round. Here you end up in a golden vault, replete with reels made entirely of gold.
The scatter symbols are golden discs. Perhaps these were awarded to Spandau Ballet for the awful tune that you always hear in the background. The fact that I recognised it must mean that it was a hit in the ’80s.
If you manage to spin 3 or more of the golden discs, you activate the bonus round, and you get a sweet 15 free spins. On top of that, your winnings in the bonus round will be multiplied by 3, except when you spin 5 wild symbols.
With the possibility to retrigger the free spins your chances to grab some nice payouts are enhanced. This retriggering of the free spins goes up to a maximum of 180 x.
But believe you me, you can go quite a ways with that.
Our verdict on the Gold video slot?
The Gold video is the very first release of the online casino game developer Big Time Gaming. And for a first release, the game is all right. The design can’t be called fabulous, and the bling theme is no help.
In case you missed it earlier, I hated the background music. Apart from the choice of the song, it would seem to me that playing the same tune constantly obviously does nothing to enhance the player’s experience.
Nothing wrong with the payouts of the Gold slot though. Especially during the Gold Bonus Feature, with the free spins and retriggers, things can work out very profitable for you.
I say, earplugs, shades and go for it
3.5 out of 5 stars.
