Aristocrat is Austalia’s leading supplier of slots which are otherwise known as pokies down under. The company is only second to IGT when it comes to producing slots throughout the world. It has over 60 years experience in the industry so they really know how to make a good slot! The most popular that Aristocrat created is Where’s the Gold. This slot machine can be found in pubs and clubs all over Australia. We decided to take a closer look at this game and see why it is so popular.
Where’s the Gold Mate?
One reason the Where’s the Gold slot was so well received by the Australian public is because it features a unique Gold Rush theme and it offers some very attractive payouts. It was first released as a 5-reel poker machine by Aristocrat back in 2003 when it took the slot machine industry by storm. The game centers on a happy go lucky miner who is digging for gold in the hopes of striking it rich. It has such a unique playing experience that players keep coming back to it for more and more action. Recently Aristocrat realised the importance of making their games available to a wider audience no matter where they are, so they decided to release a digital version of Where’s the Gold so everyone could enjoy this game online.
A Great Online Slot
Aristocrat tasked NextGen Gaming with the duty of converting Where’s the Gold into digital format and they have really excelled themselves by delivering an excellent online version of this slot machine. The game itself features 25 paylines which can be adjusted when placing a bet. This is quite beneficial for players who like to budget when they play games. It is worth noting that the game is highly volatile which should appeal to players who do not mind waiting for a big payout to land. The slot features a Free Spins bonus game and this can be triggered when you land 3 or more Free Spins symbols along the reels. The Free Spins symbol is aptly illustrated by a dangerous stick of dynamite! Players receive 10 Free Spins in this feature and you can also retrigger more Free Spins if you land additional Free Spins symbols.
That is not all as Where’s the Gold features a fun bonus round where players pick a miner who will dig the ground like a maniac in order to reveal hidden bonuses. This is a really touch and it ties in well with the theme of this game. If you like to take a bit of gamble then you’ll be pleased to know that Where’s the Gold also has a Gamble mode. This feature is triggered when you form a win across the reels and it involves guessing the correct colour or suit of a card. If you decide to pick a colour and guess correctly then your win will be doubled but if you are really feeling lucky and pick the correct suit then your win will be quadrupled!
The jackpot for this game is 4,000 credits which more than makes up for the fact that it does not contain a progressive jackpot. One last thing to mention about this game is that it is an instant-play game meaning you can play it directly from your web browser so need to download any additional software whatsoever.
Start mining for some gold today with Where’s the Gold and see if you can spark a Gold Rush!
