Pragmatic Play Releases Gold Rush Slot
Pragmatic Play takes you on a adventure to the 19th century California where you can dig yourself some gold nuggets and become rich in a single spin. Their first 2018 slot title Gold Rush uses 5 reels and 25 paylines and benefits from a progressive free spins feature.
The mining theme is nicely delivered with this one featuring a 5×3 grid set within a mine shaft. The graphics come in vibrant colours and are accompanied with a country tune and realistic sound effects of mining and horse neighing. On the reels you will meet a jolly prospector with a pickaxe on his shoulder and a gold nugget in his hand, cart loaded with gold nuggets, pit pony, lamp and mining tools. They award high-value payouts whereas nicely drawn playing card symbols make up the lower ends of the playtable. A stack of dynamite and the mine interior represent Wild and Scatter respectively.
The biggest attraction of the Pragmatic Play 2018 release is the progressive free spins feature awarding 10 free games during which you have to go deeper to collect special symbols represented as gold nuggets to advance up the levels for a more rewarding gaming experience. As you unlock the levels, more prospector symbols will be added to the reels. Keep in mind that it is the most lucrative symbol awarding 500 coins, so you can land some hefty wins during the feature, up to 125,000 coins to be precise.
You can join the prospector and make yourself rich if you wager between €0.25 and €125 per spin. This is a medium to high variance game and you should keep in mind that the free spins feature is not easy to trigger as Scatter land only on the three central reels and you need 3 of them to unlock it. However, once you manage to do it, you can enjoy an infinite number of free games as every Scatter that lands on the reels will add 2 extra free spins thus prolonging the duration of the feature.
