The Gold Slot game can be found at casinos using Big Time Gaming software. Big Time Gaming is one of the newer software developers in the online gaming market. Alongside many of the smaller casino software providers Big Time Gaming focus exclusively on Slot Games. The company was founded by two individuals who reportedly were involved in the early days of New Tech Media that (via various sales and takeovers) ended up being part of OpenBet. Big Time Gaming publish the slots house edge information of all their games as standard. As such we can say that the House Edge of Gold Slot is 3.85%.
Gold Slot is a 5 reel slots game that is 3 symbols high. The game uses traditional paylines, with 20 in total, playing from left to right.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Gold Briefcase”, which will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters. Not only do Wild symbols double any wins that they are involved in, they are also the most valuable symbol in the game. 2 as part of a winning payline will pay out 10 coins, 3 will pay out 200 coins, 4 will pay out 2000 coins, whilst 5 “Gold Briefcase” Wild symbols as part of a winning payline will pay out 10,000 coins.
Scatters – The “Gold Disk” symbols are Scatters. To trigger the game’s Free Spins feature you need to 3 or more “Gold Disk” symbols on a single spin. Scatter symbols pay out regardless of paylines, with 2 earning you 2 coins, 3 earning you 5 coins, 4 earning you 20 coins and 5 “Gold Disk” symbols anywhere on the reels earning you 100 coins.
Free Spins – When you trigger the Free Spins feature by landing 3 or “Gold Briefcase” symbols Disk” symbols anywhere on the reels in a single spin you will be granted 15 free spins. During the feature all win are multiplied by 3, except 5 of a kind Wilds. Free Spins can be re-triggered by landing 3 or more of the “Gold Disk” symbols on a single free spin.
Gold Slot has to be the most straight forward game that Big Time Gaming have released to date. The game is as simple a slots game as you are likely to find, with a basic set of reels, basic symbols and no real background, other than a purple sheet, to speak of. This lack of visual detail is supported by a lack of features. There are free spins and wilds and that is essentially all you get. The house edge is also much higher than we would ever want it to be, meaning there is nothing here we would recommend.
