Black Gold is an oil prospecting themed video slot from BetSoft Gaming. This title contains a rather unique gaming structure, as well as wonderful 3D graphics, and a theme which hasn’t been done to death. Black Gold won’t be everybody’s cup of tea, and you need a somewhat decent device to play the game on (due to the high graphic quality) but decent gameplay is relatively assured for most players.
Black Gold offers up a 5-reel, 30-payline structure, with players able to take command of their stakes via options which allow them to alter the number of lines, the value of their coins, and how many coins they wish to stake per line. Black Gold is suitable for players of all budgets, with the wagering spectrum covering bets worth as little as 2p per line, up to £150 per spin.
Cash prizes in this slot are actually a little on the low-side. The most you can hope to win in a single winning combination is 400 coins. In order to pocket that, you will need to land 5 oil hunter symbols on a line. The horse, drums, hat, pipe, wheel, mounted horns, and sign symbols pay out considerably less in this slot.
The centrepiece in this slot is the Black Gold slot is the re-spins feature. Every time a player lands a winning combination on the reels, they will be granted a free re-spin. Consecutive wins grant further re-spins, with increasing multipliers being added to those wins, up to a total of 5x the normal rate of pay in all. Once a player loses, the re-spins feature ends.
A Click Me bonus can also be triggered. Players simply need to land 3 or more drill symbols anywhere on the screen to trigger it. This is a basic feature, and not particularly one worthy of remembrance.
The free spins bonus round in Black Gold is far more profitable. Three or more barn symbols are enough to trigger the feature. Barn symbols are wild in this feature (but only in this feature) and they can award random multipliers worth up to 10x the normal rate of pay in all.
Higher or Lower Bonus
Land the oil pump symbol on the first, second and fifth reels to trigger the Higher or Lower bonus. You can probably guess what is next. Players can choose whether the next number will be higher or lower to bolster their wins with this feature.
Black Gold is an enjoyable game, even if there are no wilds in the base game. It is true that the features in this slot don’t offer up big wins on their own, but those multipliers certainly can. A 400-coin non-progressive jackpot might seem piddly, but imagine a 10x multiplier on top of that and it all suddenly becomes worth it. Black Gold isn’t going to be everybody’s cup of tea (like we’ve said), but we’d certainly recommend all players to give it a quick look at the very least.
