Gold Pokie Review
Big Time Gaming are trying to take over the online pokies world from their base in Sydney, Australia, and Gold is another strong release from this fast-growing company.
All those glitters is most definitely Gold when it comes to this pokie, and you run the risk of being blinded by the glittering symbols on display here. Credit cards, chunky watches and jewelry and limos are all provided with a coat of gold, and a version of Spandau Ballet’s hit single serves as a soundtrack to reinforce that golden theme.
In common with many of the releases from Big Time Gaming, the Gold pokie is a 5 reel game offering 20 pay lines. This company understands how to make compelling and enjoyable pokie games, so keep reading as we find out what lies beneath the surface of this superficially sparkling release.
About The Game
Software:Big Time Gaming
Coins Range:0.01 - 2.00
Fee Spins/Multiplier Better:15
Wild Symbol: A golden suitcase symbolizes the wild card in the Gold pokie, and it opens to reveal… well, more gold. If you see five of these on your screen it means that you have won a massive 10,000 times your initial stake. The wild symbol can be used to replace any other symbol except for the Scatter and any winning lines which feature a wild symbol are doubled in value.
Scatter Symbol: A gold disc represents the scatter feature in this game and when three or more of these appear on any of the reels fifteen free spins are released. These golden records are the most important symbols of the game, and they help you to mine the richest seams of gold in this pokie.
Free Spins: It is possible to win up to 180 free spins by turning up additional Scatter icons during free play. Okay so it’s probably not going to happen, but the lure of that golden promise is liable to keep you spinning those reels.
Everything you win during free play is tripled, so you most definitely want to see those golden discs appearing as often as possible. Drawing five of any of the other symbols will only pay out between 100 and 250 times your original bet.
As we mentioned above the maximum possible payout is ten thousand times your pay line stake, and this is triggered if you manage to reveal 5 golden suitcases on the playing area. In regular game-play you need to look out for the top ranking gold bars and limo, as when five of either show up it means you have won x750 your bet.
The Gold pokie game does not rank as one of the best games from Big Time Gaming, but it is certainly a decent entry onto the market.
Unfortunately, its similarity to other releases means that it is unlikely to make much of an impact on the pokies scene, but the Free Spins feature enlivens what might otherwise be a pretty routine gaming experience.
We have high hopes for future releases from this Australian outfit, but this title does not really set itself apart from the competition.
