Gold Lab Pokie Review
Typical themes for a pokie machines come and go: some are based on a popular movie hit, other on Super Villains or just as a remake of a popular brick ‘n’ mortar casino game. Still, there is but one type that truly stands out as the most diabolical, most over-all aggravating, and all around completely exasperating: The Mad Scientist.
You can found a lot of TV shows and cartoons packed with some kind of Mad Scientist, including earliest animated Superman toons and the latest Batman iterations. They all have one thing in common – a great role of a scientist. With that in mind, Quickspin has recently released their first cartoon-themed game, with a plot set around the funny scientist character. Is it mad or not? Well, let’s find out.
Based in Stockholm, Quickspin is a Swedish provider of innovative pokie machines, available in a range of online casinos both in the real money online gambling and free to play social markets. The company is focused on players and pays much attention on their wishes – all according to their motto “creating the kind of games that we as players would love to play”. Gold Lab pokie machine is the latest addition in their portfolio of pokies and just as their other titles, it also features impressive graphic and sound effects.
How to play
The Gold Lab is a 5 reel pokie machine with 25 paying lines, packed with themed symbols, crisp graphics and a variety of betting options. This fun-filled game that follows a scientist in his quest to make gold is available to play on desktop, mobile and tablet devices.
All the icons are made with the cartoon graphics and you will find 4 different coloured beakers as well as 5 different coloured precious gemstones. In order to score as much as possible, look for the yellow wild symbol which is the game’s highest paying symbols and rewards you with 8 times your stake if lucky enough to collect at least 5 such icons.
About The Game
Coins Range:0.10 - 100
Fee Spins/Multiplier Better:Yes
You can set the minimal bet from as little as $0.10 or decide to wager with as much as $100 per spin.
Unlike the competition, Quickspin has decided not to put any bonus round or to award players with spectacular free spins. Still, you will find a feature named Golden Bonus and the game is all around it, so you can actually expect some sizeable winnings after all.
The round starts when the Golden Bonus scatter appears at the same time on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reel. This is where the Beaker Meter steps on the scene and it is placed on the right side of your screen. When each of 4 beaker icons has a corresponding Golden Bonus scatter, the game will award you with 4 additional spins.
Then, all corresponding Beaker icons on the reels will transform into a wild during the re-spins round and you can have more chances to form a winning combination. If you manage to collect 1 more scatter, it will also turn a Beaker into a wild and give you one more free spin.
The maximum payout depends on the amount you decided to bet. As we have already stated, there is a wide variety of betting options, and the game is ready to pay you up to 80x your stake. This is a non progressive pokie machine, but you will find a rewarding Golden Bonus instead.
Based around the story of a mad scientist on his quest to create gold, the Gold Lab is a beautifully designed pokie machine that brings several unique options, including innovative game symbols and an interesting gameplay.
With the return to player percentage of 96.06%, this is a medium volatile game, but it also sets new standards for Quickspin pokies. Although some patience is required – and advised – you can really benefit from the game’s main rewarding option.
The Golden Bonus feature is here to provide more chances to form a winning combination, giving you a free spin each time you collect a scatter.
