The California Gold Rush slot machine with 50 paylines on 5 reels was released in 2017. The game is set in the United States amid the Gold Rush. The video slot mainly attracts online casino users with its free spins, stacked wild symbols, and considerable winnings with multipliers of up to x600.
This slot machine uses fixed paylines, meaning that the user will only need to adjust the amount of the total bet in a separate menu before they start playing. The menu opens up with a click on the New Bet button, after which available bet amount options from 50 to 5000 credits will appear on the screen. The amount selected will be withdrawn from the play balance at the beginning of each paid spin.
Alternatively, the player can bet 5000 credits in one click, using the Max Bet button. Once confirmed, a new spin will automatically start at the maximum bet. The “i” key opens the paytable. The round button in the center of the control panel starts the rotation of the reels. By pressing and holding it, the player activates the Auto Spins mode.
The playing field is placed against the backdrop of a night landscape with moths flying around. The wild symbol here looks like a stack of shiny gold bars. The picture of an old gold miner brings the largest payouts, multiplying the linear bet by 50, 150, and 600 times. The symbol of a young gold miner with a shovel has payout multipliers of 30, 100, and 150. The portrait of a sheriff on horseback pays out with multipliers of 20, 100, and 150. The bank picture increases the amount wagered by 5, 20, and 100 times, and the symbol of a steam train multiplies it by 5, 20, and 80.
The rest of the symbols have the following multipliers:
Free spins are the main prize feature of the slot. It launches as soon as three or more scatters with WANTED posters appear anywhere on the reels. This picture is paid for regardless of the lines, and it multiplies the total bet by 2, 5, 20, and 500 times.
The user gets 10 free spins. If during those a new combination of scatter symbols is formed, 10 more games will be added to the remaining ones. Users can increase their winnings during free spins even more as all combinations featuring the wild symbol receive an additional multiplier of х6.
The slot machine has medium volatility, and the Return to Player (RTP) here is 96.06%. The largest payouts can come during free spins. The player is advised to gradually increase the bet amount until the bonus feature is activated.
