There is something about classic slot games and the American gold rush that makes them a perfect fit for each other, and Gold Rally from Playtech has joined the ranks. It comes offering very simple, cartoonish graphics, with a trio of rednecks riding a wagon into a gold mine in the background. They look like a lively bunch; one wearing an eyepatch, another holding a pickaxe, and the third triumphantly holding his fist in the air with a malicious grin on his face and a mad look in his eye. Just the type of folks you’d like to have a picnic with.
Now that we have covered that, let’s move on to the game’s layout and setup. You will notice you have a pretty traditional, old school style grid of 3 reels and 3 rows. But these come with a total of 8 active paylines which may be more than what you were counting on. The paylines aren’t fixed so this will allow you to select a lesser number to play with if you want to, but what is fixed is the coin value. With that in mind, we ought to point out that the stakes in this title are very steep and not suitable for everyone’s pocket. The minimum bet alone will set you back a hefty £2 per single spin, and if you’d like to go higher, it can be as much as £18 per spin, which is the maximum available bet.
Gold Rally comes with its own jackpot, which is exciting on its own, but as is often the case with this type of online slot game, you will only have the possibility of winning it if you play with the maximum number of paylines. Even if you don’t, you still have the chance of winning pretty big – how does 5,000 times your line bet sound?
The key to hitting the jackpot (or scoring the other substantially high amount) is filling the screen with Scatter symbols.
Now, while this title may not feature a Wild symbol, it sure does have a Bonus symbol in addition to the Scatter we described just now. This means that there is a Bonus round to look forward to which is rarer with classic slots.
This one is called the Dynamite Bonus Feature, and in order to trigger it, you will have to land a Dynamite symbol in each one of the four corners of the screen during the same spin. This will take you to a new screen displaying a simple pick me game. The objective is to select items that explode until you finally reveal a cash prize.
Gold Rally is an exciting title in that it offers some fantastic winning opportunities. However, it is by no means a bankroll-friendly offering and it is extremely volatile.
