The classic-style 5 x 3 reel slot game comes with 5 pay lines that pay from the leftmost reel and from the right – giving you twice as many chances to create winning lines. You will need 3 or more symbols in an adjacent line to create a winning combo, the biggest wins come via the Gopher Gold logo symbol. If you are spinning with the max stake and create a 5 of a kind combination with the Gopher Gold logo symbols, you will bank $12,000. Gopher Gold comes with a medium volatility, which means that you will never be left waiting for all too long before you create a winning combo. It also means that when the wins do roll in, you won’t be left feeling unrewarded. In 1999, not all too many online slot games strayed from the traditional format, it was years after when exciting and immersive bonus features started to become a possibility, so, it isn’t a surprise to see just one bonus feature in Gopher Gold, the wild symbols.
Gopher Gold Bonus Features
The traditional playing card symbols, A, K, Q, J and 10 are the lower-value symbols. The most these symbols can offer is 500 coins when creating a 5 of a kind combination with the A symbols. The premium symbols are all different things that you’d associate with goldmining, in order of the lowest paying to the highest, they include oil lamps, minecarts stacked full of gold, mining tools, sticks of dynamite, and, of course, the high paying Gopher Gold logo symbols. The gopher who has already got his hands on plenty of gold is the wild symbol. He doesn’t carry an individual value, like the aforementioned symbols, but he can step in and substitute for other standard playing symbols. His presence on the reel set improves your chances of creating high value lines, significantly.
