Where’s The Gold Online Slots Overview

Where’s the Gold is a slot game based on the theme of gold rush that took place in some countries, and follows the adventures of an old gold digger still searching for the precious metal. It is a slot, or pokies game, by the leading Australian games developer, Aristocrat Gaming, who are well known for their colourful and unusual slots games. This game is ideal for all players, both high and low stake players, as the percentage payout is very attractive. Where’s the Gold has been played in land based casinos for some time, and was brought online by Aristocrat’s partnership with Nextgen Gaming. All the symbols, characters and the sound are identical to what you will find at the land casino.

Dynamite and Gold Nuggets Play Their Part

Where’s the Gold has five reels and twenty five pay lines. Graphics are clear and crisp, colours are bright, and the music sound track is pleasant. Symbols in Where’s the Gold include the gold digger of course, a pickaxe, an ox cart and a shovel, a mine shaft and dynamite, and the standard playing card symbols of nine, ten, Jack, queen and king. The Dynamite is the Scatter symbol, which triggers the free spins feature, and the Gold symbols are the Wild symbols, and they can replace any other symbols in a winning combination except the Scatter.

The Free Spins Round Is the Main Attraction

Three or more of the Scatter symbols in this slots game appearing on the reels, will trigger the free spins feature. The free spins feature is the main attraction in the game Where’s the Gold. Three Scatters will win you ten free spins.

Before this feature can be activated, the player will be asked to pick out a character to dig out the gold nuggets. The characters you can choose from are Mary Money, Nugget Ned, Peter Panner, Professor Gold and Happy Lucky.  When you have decided on one of these individuals, all of them, including the one that you selected, will dig out bonus gold nuggets. They have a limited time to do this, after which the free spins are awarded. The number of free spins you are awarded is equal to the number of nuggets dug out by the character you have chosen. During the free spins, the regular symbols are replaced by extra Wild Gold symbols, and the more you get, the more possibilities of winning combinations you will get. The Wild symbols for the free spins feature are listed on the top of the screen.

Where’s the Gold is one of the classic games by Aristocrat, and has been voted one of the games that are the most fun to play.
