Gold Rush Slot Machine
Gold Rush is a classic 3 reel slot, which is based on the theme of the California Gold Rush of the 1800’s – where panning for gold in the mountains made the lucky few very rich. This is a simple slot, it has some deliberately retro graphics – though the game-play is also a little retro by the standard of some more recent 3 reel games. There are still some great reasons to take this game for a spin. The bags of gold are wild, and double or quadruple your wins. There is also a decent top prize or 400 coins to be won if you line up all 3 of the gold bags.
You’ll find the pay table taking up most of the left hand side of this game, with prizes listed under ‘bet one’, ‘bet two’ or ‘bet max’ (which is 3 coins).The logo is at the top on the right and shows a guy in a hat with a white beard panning for gold in a bright blue river. He does not look very happy, which is a little surprising considering the large gold nugget visible in his pan. There are mountains in the background, and a red and gold logo. Below this are the reels, the colours here are more faded, and the shading does show the curve of the reels.
There is no soundtrack for this game. Everything remains quiet until you spin, when all you will hear is a ‘bink’ sound like someone hitting a tin can when the reels stop. The only real effect is when you hit a winning combination. Anything above 3 mixed bar symbols gets you a short and lively tune played on a banjo.
You will not find any animations for this game – which keeps things very simple throughout.
