You can find this by clicking the ‘+’ symbol at the bottom left hand corner of the game window then clicking ‘?’. Within this help file you’ll find the RTP information. As such we can say that the House Edge of Gold’Orado is 4%. As the help file does not list a range of possible figures we assume that this game is not configurable and should be the same at every casino you find it at.
Gold’Orado is a 6 reel game with a particion in the middle, which essentially means you have 2 sets of 3 reels that are both 5 symbols high. The games uses 25 standard paylines over each set of reels, each one playing from left to right. During the Free Spins feature the reels will join together to create a set of reels that are 6 symbols across and 5 symbols high, the number of paylines will remain at 25.
Wild – The Wild symbol will substitute for all other symbols. The Wild symbol is also one of the game’s most valuable symbols with 6 as part of a winning payline earning you 200 times the bet.
Free Spins – The Free Spins symbol is the “Gold Shield”. You need to collect 8 of them across both sets of reels to trigger the Free Spins feature.
Symbol Swap – This is a random feature. If it activates the Totem will pick one symbol at random and swap it out for a high paying symbol.
Mirror Stacked Wilds –If a stack of Wilds land on any reel the Totem will mirror the stack in the opposite set of reels in the same position.
Free Spins - If you collect 8 “Gold Shield” symbols across the two sets of reels you will trigger the Free Spins feature. When this happens you will have 3 amulets to choose from and will be awarded either 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins, depending on what the amulet awards. During the feature the reels will join together to create a 6x5 grid. The feature can be re-triggered.
Random Wilds – During the Free Spins the Totem can place a random number of Wilds onto the reels with a x2, x3, x4 or a x5 multiplier.
Gold’Orado is one of many games to be released this year to use a South American theme. Incan, Aztec and Mayan themes are proving to be more and more popular and have certainly been even more commonplace this year than Egyptian themed games. That means we will be expecting something a little special from this if it is going to stand out from all those other releases. And to be honest, Gold’Orado manages it. The game looks fantastic. I like the unusual grid formation and the number of random features. In a purely aesthetic touch I like how the totem pulls faces when certain things happen. You get Free Spins that can be re-triggered, Wilds and a few additions to the Free Spins, making this a fun and engaging slots experience. The house edge is better than I was expecting from PariPlay, coming in at a pretty standard 4%, meaning this game offers some value for money too.
