Where’s The Gold Slot

Head down the mine in the hope of digging up a jackpot haul of coins in Where's the Gold, a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot from Aristocrat Gaming. It comes with an explosive free spins feature where you can boost your wins with the addition of 3 wild gold symbols. Play from between 25p and £50 per spin.

Where's The Gold has a typically Aristocrat feel - the visuals are cartoon style and include a selection of symbols related to a 19th century gold rush. Look out for pick axes, wagons, mine shafts and a cheery, bearded miner. They're joined by playing card symbols from A to J. The miner is the top payer, offering 1,000 coins if you find 5 in a payline. There's no wild in the base game but look out for them during the bonus round.

The dynamite symbol is the scatter – 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels will net you between 2 and 50 times your total stake. They'll also trigger the free games feature. Once active, you'll be presented with a selection of 5 characters. Pick one. They all go panning for gold.

The number of nuggets chosen by your character will determine the number of free spins you'll receive. You'll also see between 1 and 3 symbols in the window alongside the nuggets. These symbols will appear as wilds for the duration of the free spins round. You can trigger the free spins again with up to 20 available in all.

It may not be much to look at (and the sounds are Aristocrat's generic bangs and bleeps) but there's still plenty to enjoy here. If Where's The Gold? is the question the free spins round is the most likely answer. Decent base game wins are at a premium but if you get lucky with multiple wild symbols the cashier can soon start to roll during the bonus round.

It may not be Aristocrat's finest but this high variance affair is still a little entertainer and if you get lucky with the free spins can still deliver a gold rush. It’s a very popular land based game and for good reason. I would also recommend Choy Sun Doa and Miss Kitty (both by Aristocrat) which are 2 of my favourites.
