Gold Rally Slot is a Wild West themed free online slot, developed by Playtech. It is tailored to medium and high rollers, because its minimum bet is 2 units of currency (dollars, pounds, roubles – depending on your geographical location) per line.
Slot style and design
Gold Rally places you in deep underground gold mine, though it is not very obvious due to huge size of interface. It practically overshadows entire background. Icons try to correct this situation a bit, as most of them either golden or gold-related, but strange dark hue makes them not as bright as they could be. Art style is not very innovative or memorable, but it gets the job done and may satisfy gamblers who value performance over visual impression. Sound effects fit nicely though, and do not distract.
Gold Rally Number of reels and paylines
3 reels and 8 paylines is there for the gambler to exploit. Progressive jackpot is being touted as major feature, as it is not only present, but paraded in front of your eyes. After each spin of each player, live ticker in the middle right corner of main game screen is being updated with current amount of possible jackpot. During busy weekend, jackpot can be as high as few hundred dollars. Which is considerable. Return to player rate sits at moderately good 96.71 percent. There is no WILD bonuses or free spins, but there is a bonus game which is triggered by getting 4 dynamites in all 4 corners. You will be asked to pick a bag of gold if this happens.
Symbols and coefficients
We found at least two slightly different versions of this game, which offer slightly different symbol aesthetics. One is more bright, another is dimmer. This depends on version of software and various live casinos offer various versions. Scatter symbol is scales. Golden letters GR and horseshoes are most valuable usual symbols. Other symbols, in order of decreasing value: sturdy pickaxe, oil lamp, retro revolver, miners cart, bag with gold, red stack of dynamite. Looks live developers were somewhat inspired by “Treasure of Sierra Madre” movie.
Gold Rally is one of those Playtech’s creations which are available not only on PC, but also on phones and tablets. As it comes in two color scheme versions, it is possible to choose that one which is better looks on display of your mobile device. And just like another Playtech offering we recently analyzed, Triple Profits, its rules are refreshing enough to warrant a try.
