The design of Gold Rush is pretty good – the setting is a mine shaft. Axes and spears, a lamp, a pony at the pits and a cart full of gold join the gold-spotted playing cards. The most rewarding symbol is the bearded minor – 3, 4 or 5 of them lying on the same payline and you can expect a reward equal to 1, 8 or 20 times your total bet. To create these winning combinations, dynamite sticks are the game’s wild card. They do not offer any payments as such, but they replace all other symbols outside of the scatter.
This dispersion only appears on the 3 middle rolls. When you land on rolls 2, 3 and 4 in the same turn, you activate the Free Spins feature. Here, you can expect 10 free spins – an additional symbol, the gold nugget, is added to the reels during the free spins. Whenever one of these lands is collected one meter above the reels. The more you collect, the lower the high value minor symbols come into play. There are 4 levels in all:
- 0-4 nuggets = 7 additional minors
- 5-9 nuggets = 16 additional minors
- 10-14 nuggets = 21 additional minors
- 15+ nuggets = 29 additional minors
Whenever a cloud of points lands during the feature, 2 additional free spins are added to your total. If you advance one level during your last free spin, an additional free spin is also awarded.
Gold Rush is a pretty simple but volatile game. Expect extended periods when your prospecting will bring some gold. Collect a lot of nuggets in the Free Spins feature and coins can go away quickly. The variance is in the medium to high range.
That’s exactly what we expect from a pragmatic game: awesome design, simple gameplay and powerful functionality. Gold Rush meets all expectations, making it a fun and potentially exciting game.
