Gold Factory from Microgaming: Slot Review - fancy a job in this mythical factory?

Visit a crazy factory where Gold is produced at an alarming rate and you have the chance to win it all!

This game is all about a factory that is pumping out gold left, right and centre. It revolves around a quirky inventor clearly influenced by Willy Wonka and his trusted assistant as they use various transport to make it to the Gold Factory.

It is set in industrial times and the factory itself seems to be producing more than enough of that juicy yellow metal than it can handle!

It has 5 reels, 50 paylines and a variety of features such as free spins and two bonus games.

Special Features

The first feature I came across is the Wild symbol. It is denoted by a Gold Factory symbol and it substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter symbol which is represented as a Bonus Golden coin.

The Scatter symbol is quite significant in this game as it can award you up to 10,000 coins if you match 5 of them while playing at the maximum bet. Also, If you land 3 or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels then you will trigger the Boiler Room bonus game. This is the standout feature of the game as there is the potential to win up to 619,000 coins! In this feature, you get to pick 4 out of 12 items to reveal hidden prizes. The fun does not end there as there is a second level to this feature where you can access other features.

For instance, if you manage to reveal a Reactor symbol then you will be taken to the Reactor room where you have to correctly identify malfunctions among 12 items. If you select two malfunctions then the bonus will end and you will be sent back to the Boiler Room. You are also awarded a consolation prize of 1X for unselected items in this room.

The other level of the Boiler Room bonus game is the Free Spins room. You have to find the Free Spins logo in the Boiler Room in order to be taken to this room. You can win between 10-35 free spins in this feature and it also good to know that all free spins wins are doubled! The only downside to this feature is that Free Spins cannot be retriggered here.

Theme and Graphics

The game has a really polished presentation and the factory is breathing with life as gold is churned out at an immense rate. The animations are excellent and really come to life when winning combinations are formed on the reels as the brightly coloured symbols pop out.

You really do feel like you are inside a big industrial factory when spinning the reels and this is illustrated nicely by the golden cogs and pipes in the background of the game.

The music is upbeat and very pleasant on the ears. It really adds to the game and compliments the theme of the slot very well.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 50 paylines, a nice RTP of 96.54% and an unbelievable jackpot of up to 619,000 coins!

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.
