It’s time to start huntin’ for gold with the Gold Rush slot online. Created by Pragmatic Play, the Gold Rush online slot is an exciting journey back to the days of prospecting! Unlike other slots the Gold Rush slot machine offers multiple levels to venture through each designed to challenge your play in different ways and of course offer more and more exciting rewards. As mentioned, the Gold Rush slot game takes place during the California Gold Rush and you’ll find the graphics, soundtrack and symbols all perfectly match this for an enchantingly immersive adventure.
The first thing you’ll see when you play Gold Rush is a standard 5x3 slot set up - but hold your horses there’s a lot of extra features to enjoy here which make the Gold Rush game anything but standard, which we’ll get to later.
Getting started with the Gold Rush slot is easy and only takes a few clicks; even less if you’re enjoying Gold Rush free play. First, you’ll need to set your stake amount using the + and - buttons found on either side of the spin button. Once that’s decided, just hit spin! Like with almost all other slot games wins are made by landing three or more matching symbols across an active payline in a single spin. When you do so you’ll be awarded the symbol value listed in the paytable.
Speaking of symbols the Gold Rush slot game has quite a few. Let’s start with the highest paying symbol which is the Prospector. The Prospector most commonly appears in later levels of the game and can award players a maximum of 2,500 coins. The next most valuable symbol is the gold card which may award up to 2,000 coins.
Moving to the medium-value symbols, there’s the donkey, lantern, shovel, and pickaxe which will all award you a maximum of 500 coins. Of course we cannot miss out the low-paying card symbols which in the Gold Rush slot are 10-A and can award a maximum of 250 coins.
Lastly there’s the bonus scatter which is your ticket to free spins, and the Wild symbol which is a stick of dynamite and can replace all other symbols apart from the bonus scatter.
Gold Rush free spins work a little differently to other free spins rounds due to the level feature used. We’ll talk more about how the golden nuggets play into this in later sections. For now let’s focus on the basic details of Gold Rush free spins. The free spins round is triggered by landing 3 or more scatters in any reel position in a single spin. Players will be awarded 10 free spins with 2 extra free spins being given for additional scatters.
Golden nuggets appear during the free spins round and are your ticket to reaching new levels of the Gold Rush slot. Each golden nugget that lands on the reels is worth a point and to get to the second level of Gold Rush you’ll need to collect 5 points. This will add 5 more prospectors to the reel set thus increasing your chances of landing higher-paying combinations. 10 more points will allow you to reach level 3 which adds another 9 prospectors while 15 nuggets is your ticket to the fourth level where 11 prospectors will appear on the reels.
It’s worth mentioning that the Gold Rush slot features an innovative battery-saving feature which mobile and tablet players will love. This feature is easily accessed from the settings menu and can mean you can enjoy spinning the Gold Rush reels without having to worry about draining your battery.
