The Gold Dust slots game can be found at casinos offering EGT software. EGT are primarily an offline slots terminal producer but have recently moved into the online market. As a standard EGT do not publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help file or paytables. However as part of the UKGC license requirements many UKGC licensed operators have started to publish this information for all of their games. As such we can tell from Jetbull’s site that the House Edge of Gold Dust is 3.99%.
Will you hit a rich vein?
Gold Dust is a 5 reel game with 20 paylines and you can bet up to 20 coins on each payline.
The ‘Gold Cart’ symbol is Wild.
There are three bonus features when playing Gold Dust. The first bonus feature is activated when you receive three or more of the ‘Train’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be asked to click on one of the Train scatter symbols and awarded a random number of complimentary spins. During the complimentary spins the multiplier starts at 1 and increases by 1 each spin. Also a ‘Gold Nugget’ symbol is added to the reels and pays in conjunction with the ‘Pick Axe’ symbol. An alternative set or reels is used for the complimentary spins and complimentary spins can be retriggered up to a maximum of 50 free spin.
The second bonus feature is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Dynamite’ bonus symbol in a row on an active payline starting from the left side of the reels. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing 12 sticks of dynamite. Select the dynamite sticks one at a time to reveal symbols. Collect four or more matching symbols to win a prize. You play up to 4 rounds like this with the bonus feature ending when you reveal the ‘Stop’ sign.
The third bonus feature is activated randomly at the end of any playing round. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing 12 face down cards. Select the cards one at a time to reveal one of the 4 suit symbols. When you’ve revealed 3 matching suit symbols the bonus round ends and you are awarded the progressive jackpot associated with that suit of cards.
Gold Dust offers the chance to play for a Progressive Jackpot at what is actually a pretty reasonable House Edge. Even if the only other bonus feature is a basic complimentary spins feature, this is pretty good value for money. However you can get the same features and Progressive Jackpots for less if you’re smart about your selection of EGT games.
