The Golden City slots game can be found at casinos offering iSoftBet software. iSoftBet are one of the newer casino software providers on the market but they have managed to tie down some impressive branded slots game contracts. As a standard iSoftBet do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help file. As such, we can tell that the House Edge of The Golden City is 4.02% when playing maximum paylines/coins.
The Golden City is a 5 reel slots game and each reel is 3 symbols high, playing from left to right over 20 paylines. Each time you form a win in the Golden City, the symbols involved will explode and new symbols will drop down into place, giving you another chance to win. The process continues if you win again and will keep going until you fail to land a winning combination.
Wilds – The slot’s Wild symbol is the “Totem Pole”, which always comes stacked and will substitute for all symbols other than Free Spins symbols and Scatters.
Valuable Symbols – The game’s most valuable symbols are the “Blue Mask” and the “Red Mask”.
Bonus – The “Golden Eye” symbol is the Free Spins symbol. Three of them on the reels at once will trigger the Bonus Trail feature. The symbol is only available on reels 1, 3 and 5.
Scatter – The Scatter symbol is the “Golden Key” and is only available during the Free Spins feature. Collecting them gives you a chance to play on the Prize Pyramid Bonus.
Bonus Trail - If you trigger the Bonus Trail by landing three bonus symbols then you will get to roll the dice on the Bonus Trail to collect Free Spins and Golden Keys, or increase the Scatter value during Free Spins. Every time a Scatter value lands this will be added to the Scatter Bank, which will determine the value of the Scatter symbols during the Free Spins.
Prize Pyramid– During the Bonus Trail, if you can land 3 of the “Golden Keys” then you will trigger the Prize Pyramid feature. The Prize Pyramid is made up of levels and you either progress up a level or you collect a cash prize. If you can make it to the very top of the pyramid then you will be awarded a chance to play the Bonus Wheel, where you can win up to 1000 times the bet. The feature ends as soon as you are awarded a cash prize and it cannot be re-triggered.
Free Spins – If you can land on the “Start” Space during the Trail Bonus you will trigger the Free Spins feature. During the feature, every time you land a “Golden Key” Scatter symbol you will be awarded the amount that was determined during the Bonus Trail.
The Golden City slot sees you spinning the reels in an ancient city that we can only assume is based on the mythical lost cities of gold in Central America. The game is up to the usual standard that iSoftBet set for themselves, with bright vibrant symbols moving the satisfying sound of granite sliding along granite that you often find in games like this. The central features are excellent, with the Bonus Trail paving the way for everything that follows. You get cascades, stacked Wilds, Free Spins and a Bonus round, so there is plenty on offer here to keep you engaged. The house edge is a little higher than we would want to be but other than that there isn’t too much here for me to criticise.
