Venture deep underground and try and unearth some precious metal in Gold Rush, a new 5 reel, 25 payline slot game from Pragmatic Play. Available to play on all devices from 25p a spin, this volatile game combines slick cartoon graphics with a potentially explosive feature round.
Set against a gold mine backdrop the reels feature a selection of mining-related equipment alongside golden flecked, playing cards. You’ll see spades and pick axes, a Davy lamp, a pit pony and a railroad cart full of gold. Most rewarding is a gnarly old miner who offers awards of up to 20 times your total stake per payline. Appropriately enough, the stick of dynamite is the wild.
The base game action is pretty standard. Where Gold Rush really sparkles is in the Free Spins feature which is triggered by landing scatters on the middle 3 reels on the same spin. You’ll then receive 10 free spins.
Look out here for the special golden nugget symbol which is in play during your bonus games. Every time 1 of these lands, it adds to a meter. As the meter fills, more and more of the highest value miner symbol are added to the reels.
Get a full complement of 15 or more golden nuggets and you’ll see 29 extra miner symbols spinning around the reels. This can really boost your chances of hitting a big score when you do land a winning combination. Landing scatters also brings rewards in the feature round. Every time 1 hits, 2 extra free spins are added to your tally.
There are few more high risk, high reward occupations than a gold miner. The same is true of this slot game as far as variance is concerned. This is something of an all or nothing affair. Expect lengthy spells when your quest for treasure will come to very little. Get on a roll with the nuggets in the free spins round and you could be counting gold galore.
