Where’s the Gold
Where’s the Gold Slot Machine
This slot is a mix of the simple yet playable games that Aristocrat is famed for, and some new ideas for the bonus round. The same formula has been used before (in ‘Lets go Fishin’). This is not the most retro title in Aristocrat’s range – though it still feels quite flat compared with modern slots from other software houses. At least the theme is cheerful and bright – even this send’s mixed messages, with cactuses on top of the screen (Wild West?) and a dwarf looking guy on the reels. Graphics for this game do have some shading, keeping them ahead of the oldest titles by the Australian slots giant. To say that the graphics or theme was good would be going too far.
I’m happy with clean and functional. There are some nicer touches, with the gold playing cards during the feature round looking fairly effective. Most of the sounds are straight from Aristocrat’s library. If you have played their games before you will be very familiar with the different clicks and beeps. There is a pick-em round in this game, which is an animated game to determine how many wilds you get for the free spins bonus. This is entertaining, though your participation is limited to picking a character at the start.
