Golden Chief Slot Review

The Golden Chief slots game can be found at online casinos offering WMS Gaming software who are a wholly owned subsidiary of Scientific Gaming. WMS Gaming do not publish their RTP or House Edge figures as standard. However UKGC licensed operators who now publish all game figures as standard. As such we can say that the House Edge of Golden Chief is 5.88% when betting less than 2 credits, 3.98% when betting 2 credits or more and 1.86% when playing the Big Bet feature. As this figure has not been confirmed by the software provider we cannot confirm whether this game is configurable or not. As such this figure should be treated as a guideline only when playing at any operator that does not publish their RTP figures.

Are you up to leading the tribe.

Golden Chief is a 5 reel game with 100 paylines. When playing the base game different numbers of paylines are in play depending on your stake. When playing less than 1 credit you are playing 10 paylines. When playing 1 credit or more you are playing with 20 paylines.

The ‘Wild’ and ‘Golden Chief’ symbols are Wild.

There are three bonus features when playing Golden Chief. The first bonus features is triggered when you receive a ‘Golden Chief’ symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens the Golden Chief symbol will expand to cover the entire reel it lands on. Also the number of paylines in play increased from 10 to 50 if you are playing less than 1 credit per spin and from 20 to 100 if you are playing 1 credit or more. When the Golden Chief has expanded you may also randomly receive a symbol upgrade, where one symbol type shown on the reels is upgraded to a higher value symbol.

The second bonus feature is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Golden Bonus’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. When playing 2 credits or more per spin the Golden Bonus symbol is two position high. A two position high symbol still only counts as a signal symbol for the purposes of triggering the bonus feature. When this happens different prizes are won depending on the number of Golden Bonus scatter symbols you receive, as defined below:

3 Golden Bonus scatter symbols – you will be shown a prise wheel that can award the following prizes:

i) Free spins. You are awarded 5 free spins. Before the free spins begin you will be offer the chance to gamble them to win additional free spins. Each gamble offers the chance to win or lose 5 free spins. The free spins will begin automatically if you have a total of 30 free spins and you will be taken back to the base game if you lose all your free spins. During the free spins Golden Bonus symbols awards additional free spins. One symbol will award 1 free spins, two symbols awards 2 free spins, three symbols awards 5 free spins, 4 symbols awards 10 free spins and 5 symbols awards the prize for receiving 5 Golden Bonus symbols in the base game detailed below. Also the Golden Chief Wild symbol expands to cover up to 5 reels rather than just the reel it lands on.

ii) Cash Canyon – You are taken to a new screen showing a trail lined with multiplier prizes. Spin the wheel to move along the trail. The feature ends when you receives the ‘Stop’ result from the wheel or you reach the end of the trail.

iii) Totem Riches – You are taken to a new screen showing 3 totem poles with 15 levels. Select one of the pole to reveal a prize on the bottom level. Reveal one prize on each level until you either reach the top of the totem poles or reveal a ‘Collect’. You are awarded the final value you select.

4 Golden Bonus scatter symbols – you will be shown a prise wheel that can award the following prizes:

i) The same as the 3 Golden Bonus feature but starting with 10 free spins rather than 5.

ii) Cash Canyon – You are taken to a new screen showing a trail lined with multiplier prizes. Spin the wheel to move along the trail. The feature ends when you receives the ‘Stop’ result from the wheel or you reach the end of the trail. The multipliers are larger than the 3 Golden Bonus symbol variant of this game.

iii) Totem Riches – You are taken to a new screen showing 3 totem poles with 15 levels. Select one of the pole to reveal a prize on the bottom level. Reveal one prize on each level until you either reach the top of the totem poles or reveal two ‘Collect’ symbols . You are awarded the final value you select.

5 Golden Bonus scatter symbols awards 500 credits for a bet of less than 2 credits and 250xbet for a bet of 2 credits or more.

The third bonus feature can be activated before any spin by pressing the ‘Big Bet’ button. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing three different options:

– For a bet of 20 credits you’ll receive 5 spins. During these spins all Golden Bonus symbols are two symbols high and payouts are improved.

– For a bet of 30 credits you’ll receive 5 spins. During these spins all Golden Bonus symbols are two symbols high and payouts are improved. Also when you receive the Golden Chief Wild symbol and it expands to cover the reel it lands on, that reel will remain Wild for the rest of the spins. If you trigger the Totem Riches bonus feature you are allowed to receive one additional ‘Collect’ before the bonus feature is ended.

– For a bet of 50 credits you’ll receive 5 spins. All spins at this level are played at 100 paylines. During these spins all Golden Bonus symbols are two symbols high and payouts are improved. Also when you receive the Golden Chief Wild symbol and it expands to cover the reel it lands on, that reel will remain Wild for the rest of the spins and you have a higher chance of randomly having a symbol upgraded to a higher value symbol. If you trigger the Totem Riches bonus feature you are allowed to receive one additional ‘Collect’ before the bonus feature is ended.

Conclusion

Golden Chief is a show case of everything that WMS Gaming can do when they get it right. A phenomenal selection of bonus features combines with user choice and, if you’re willing to play the Big Bet feature, one of the lowest House Edges you will find playing any slots game on the market. Even when playing at more reasonable bet levels the House Edge of Golden Chief is well inside of the acceptable level. There’s next to nothing that can be faulted about this game and we’d encourage you to check it out.
