Winter Gold is a slot that is inspired by the Winter Olympics. It features some of the more popular events on its symbols, including the Bobsleigh, the Ski Jumping, the Biathlon and Speed Skating. There is plenty of snow to go around, there are medals and features that will let you choose which event you want to attend. There are also wild symbols, so hopefully there will be plenty of chances to hit the $20,000 top prize. You will bet on 15 lines. This is one of the games offered by Microgaming.
Betting and Prizes
Despite the maximum bet of $60, you can have up to 300 coins in the wager. The reason is that they have maximum values which are low, of up to $0.20. The game does let you use up to 20 coins for one line though, so you can spend $4 per line, or $60 for all of them.
It appears that the big prize in this game will be at $20,000, and it will come with help from the wild symbol’s own combination. It’s a 5,000x jackpot, which looks good enough, though not particularly impressive.
Winter Gold Slot Features
The feature that is more regular is the wild symbol, since it’s the same one that will be used in many other slot machines. It’s a game logo that you’re seeing in this symbol, and it will be a way for you to land a 5,000x top prize if enough of them are on the same line, or it can be a substitute and help you get a smaller prize from another symbol. Wilds shouldn’t be expected to be able to replace a scatter.
The alternative feature is the Bonus Wheel, and that’s the one that you want to get if you’re excited about the theme of the Winter Gold slot. The Bonus Wheel loads up when enough scatter symbols trigger it, and on it you will find four types of bonus games, cash prizes and free spins. Depending on where the wheel stops, you might get up to 18,000 coins, up to 20 free games, or one of the events from the Olympics (Biathlon, Bobsleigh, Speed Skating and Ski Jumping).
Theme & Design
Winter Gold’s design looks pretty good. The higher paying icons are dedicated to the events of the Winter Olympics, and there are a couple of logos as well. The lower paying icons are the numbers and letters which are inspired by the poker cards. They’re simply surrounded by some kind of ice line, nothing fancy.
Winter Gold slot has a theme that slots generally don’t cover, so I’m glad that Microgaming decided to use it. Fans of this great event will appreciate having the option to play it.
