Where’s the Gold
Where’s the Gold is a 5 reel, 25 payline video pokie game. The game is set in the Wild West where gold mining was extensive and the sound effects support this setting, as does the background with its mountains, long grass and cacti. The game is suitable for all players from penny players to high rollers. There is a coin range of 0.01 to 4.00 available and with a maximum of 25 coins per spin this results in a betting range of 0.01 to 100.00 per spin.
Where’s the Gold is an exciting pokie game that offers a range of bonus features to create more winning opportunities. The game includes wild symbols, a scatter symbol and a free spins bonus round that includes a bonus feature game.
The symbols in the game are brightly coloured and crisp, standing out against the darker background. There are 5 reels and three rows.
The most obvious symbol in the game is the jolly prospector with his big grin, plaid shirt and polka dot handkerchief around his neck. Other symbols include wagons, shovels and picks, lamps, mine shafts and dynamite, as well as high value playing cards from 9 to A.
The dynamite symbol is the scatter symbol and spinning three or more anywhere on the reels will result in a payout of up to 50x your bet when five land on the reels. This symbol is also the key to the free spins bonus feature game.
The prospector is the jackpot symbol and spinning five of these on an active payline will result in the maximum fixed jackpot of 1,000 coins – which could result in a win of up to 4,000. It can also act as one of the wild symbols in the free spins bonus round.
Free Spins Bonus Feature
The free spins bonus feature is triggered when three or more scattered dynamite symbols land anywhere on the reels. Players will be awarded up to a maximum of 10 free spins with all wins in the free spins round tripled. In order to reveal the exact number of free spins you will be awarded you will be taken to a separate screen with five interesting and varied characters standing in a row.
You will need to choose one character who will be lit up by a ray of light. You can chose from Peter Panner (a miner), Professor Gold, Mary Money (a sexy blonde), Happy Lucky (a hippie) and Find Doh (a dog). You can sit back and watch as all five characters begin to mine for gold in their own unique ways, digging up nuggets and symbols as they go. Each of these nuggets represent one free spins and the total number of nuggets that your character digs up by the end of the feature game will be the total number of free spins you are awarded.
You will also be awarded wilds for your chosen character which will appear during the free spins game. You can win up to three wilds. You watch helplessly as all characters dig up gold and wild symbols and in some cases another character may dig up more than the one you chose. However, even if your character didn’t dig up the most free spins or wilds, the game will play and in addition to what he or she dug up, the mining tools during the free spins round can randomly turn into gold wilds creating extra winning opportunities, so keep an eye out for them while you play.
Once the free spins round has been completed, you will be paid out for any winnings and returned to the base game.
After every win you are able to play a gamble game in an attempt to increase your winnings. You can choose to simply collect your winning and continue, but if you choose to gamble you will be take to a separate screen with a regular playing card, facing down. If you correctly choose the colour of the card, you will double your winnings and if you correctly choose its suite you will quadruple your winnings. If you choose incorrectly, you will lose your winnings for that round.
Where’s the Gold is a bright and colourful game with an entertaining theme and a unique bonus feature game. The game offers many opportunities to win, giving you many reason to come back for more.
