Gold King – Game of the Week
Michael Jackson was the King of Pop, Elvis was the King of Rock ‘n Roll, but Midas was the Gold King with the magic touch. Everything he laid his paws on would turn into that most coveted of precious metals. Find out more about the Game of the Week and maybe he’ll help you go from rags to riches.
You may be surprised to hear that there are “only” two bonus features to look out for in this Play’n GO release, Golden Spins and Free Spins. As they say: “Less is more,” and this is truly the case for Gold King.
Instead of spreading the game thin over a whole bunch of bonus features which could be difficult to understand, focus is precise. Precisely where you want to be, that is. Let’s just jump straight into it, shall we?
Gold King’s Golden Spins
This feature is only triggered randomly in the main game. Reels 1, 3 and 5 are locked with the same symbols in every position. Only reels 2 and 4 will keep spinning, leaving you with a great chance of landing the same symbols across the screen.
Since this can only happen during the main game it’s worth mentioning that every spin during the main game will have a random symbol selected. This symbol is now stacked 12 in a row on every reel and this is what makes this feature tick.
Gold King’s Free Spins
When you trigger Free Spins in Gold King there are a few things you should know. Just because somethings sound too good to be true doesn’t mean that they are. Hold on to your seat, here it comes. You can play UNLIMITED amounts of Free Spins in Gold King.
This is how it works. First you have to hit the King symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 to get to the Free Spins round. Then the fun begins. The Captain got so royally excited that he decided to put it all down in numbered bullet points for you:
1) Every King symbol will give you 2 extra Free Spins. There’s no limit on how many times this can happen during the Free Spins game. Oh, and you start with 10 Free Spins.
2) Wilds are stacked up to 6-7 per reel during Free Spins.
3) High paying symbols will expand if they are on winning paylines.
4) You only need 2 high paying symbols in a row for them to expand.
5) The Captain just wanted to mention the whole unlimited-Free-Spins thing one more time.
That’s all you need to know about the Free Spins in Gold King. Before you start playing you might want to continue reading about how to set the game up to your liking.
How to play Gold King
Play’n GO is known for making games that are easy to play without a lot of buttons to press before you get started. Of course, Gold King is not an exception. The first thing you want to do is decide on a stake. It’s in the middle at the bottom. Play for as little as €0.20 or as much as €100.
Then you can either start spinning or set the game to spin automatically for you. You can choose to play up to 500 spins without clicking and tweak the settings to stop the spinning depending on what happens to your account balance. It’s really intuitive.
Gold King is pretty much a standard online casino slot in the sense that it has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 fixed paylines. With an RTP of 96.53% it’s slightly better than most games out there. That’s it. That’s all you need to know.
But before you go and try to take advantage of the Gold King, there’s one more thing we just have to repeat. Just one more time. Last time. Promise. There’s no limit to how many Free Spins you can play in this game. Isn’t that Awesome!?
