Black Gold Slots Review
Welcome to the Wild, Wild West, where the oil industry is king and the search for black gold never ends! For those of you who don’t know, oil was first discovered in 1859 in Titusville, Pennsylvania by George Bissell and Edwin Drake. There are many books, comics, movies and games inspired by the Wild West and Black Gold slots is also on that list. It has an oil-drilling theme and runs on Betsoft software. Keep reading to find out more!
Black Gold Overview
Black Gold slots has five reels, three rows and up to thirty paylines; the reels spin on a huge wooden noticeboard set in front of various oil wells tapping into the earth. The main character in this slot is Ol' Bill – a moustachioed chap with a huge hat and an old trusty horse.
The symbols are all theme-related and include Ol’ Bill, his horse, some oil drums, a hat, dripping oil, a rusty valve, some mounted animal horns and a ‘Private Property’ notice.
The slot doesn’t include a Wild, but there are some bonus symbols like a barn, a drill and an oil pump, all of which activate various extra features which are explained below.
How To Play Black Gold
Before you start drilling for black gold, you need to set your bets. By clicking on the wooden plank with ‘Choose Coin’ written on it you will set coins size which ranges from 0.02 to 1. The ‘Select Lines’ barrel allow you to adjust the number of lines you wish to bet.
Clicking on the ‘Bet per Line’ crate will set the number of coins per line. When you’re ready to start, click on the ‘Spin’ barrels or go with the ‘Max Bet Spin’ which will spin the reels on the maximum bet and number of paylines. The ‘Autoplay’ option will turn the reels automatically without interruption for a chosen number of times.
How To Win Black Gold Slots
The lowest-paying symbol in Black Gold slots is the ‘Private Property’ sign which awards 10x the line bet for five-of-a-kind combination. Next is the mounted horns symbol and landing five of it on a payline will award you 25 times your bet per line. A combination of five of the rusty valve symbol pays 50x the line bet, whereas five of the symbol featuring dripping oil are worth 60x. The symbol featuring a hat, some cash and cigars is worth 80 coins for five-of-a-kind combination and the oil drums pay 100 coins for five. The owner’s horse awards 200 coins for landing five matching symbols on a payline, while Ol’ Bill pays 400 coins for five.
Black Gold Bonus Features
Nighttime Free Spins
Landing three or more of the barn symbols anywhere in view triggers this feature for which you will receive ten free spins. Those free spins are played on a set of reels which includes that barn symbol as an extra wild which will increase the multiplier value with each successive win up to a maximum of 10x.
Drilling For Oil Click Me
This bonus round is triggered by landing three or more of the drill symbols anywhere in view. Once you do that, you need to choose one of the drills on show for an instant win.
Higher Or Lower Bonus Round
You can trigger this feature by landing three of the oil pump symbol on reels one, two and five. After that, you get to play a Higher/Lower game to win a prize. You are limited to four guesses.
Centre Reel Spins
This is a base game feature which occurs on every win – after every winning combination the centre reel will respin and with every additional win, the multiplier will increase by 1x up to a maximum of 5x. As long as wins occur, the re-spin feature remains triggered.
You can check your multiplier progress any time in the meter in the top right hand corner.
