Gold Factory Slot Review
Gold Factory is a 5×3 slot with 50 paylines and a two-level bonus game with huge potential prizes. The reels are shining and glistening with gold coins, bullions and gold-loaded carts that create the feeling of being present at a big plant manufacturing all kinds of gold products. Lively and gorgeous win animations add an exquisite touch to what’s going on there, and steam punk elements manifested on the symbols and at the background image complete the overall picture. A definitive $20,000 jackpot makes the slot worthwhile your time and effort!
This is a medium-variance slot with moderate-sized winnings that occur in regular intervals to maintain your interest in the game play and make your bankroll last longer. All basic symbols pay out when at least three of them are collected on a payline left to right, so this is a typical video slot in terms of reel mechanics. There are none regular symbols; three pictures depicting gold items (award x3 to x100), three means of transportation (award x12 to x800), and three high paying symbols with the factory master, a boy and a futuristic gold factory itself. The highest prize for hitting regular symbols, without any wilds and bonus symbols used, is $5000 and is given away if you gather five factory masters along an active payline.
Three betting options are offered in the slot: the number of paylines (1–50), a coin denomination ($0.01–$0.10) and the number of coins per line (up to 20), so the minimum and maximum stakes that the punter is allowed to place are $0.50 and $100 per reel spin.
A wild symbol in the game performs two useful functions. First, it replaces all regular icons, like a joker in card games, And second, it creates combinations by itself when 3 or more wilds stop on a payline. Five wild pictures pay out x7500 (or $15,000 at the maximum wager), which is the second largest jackpot in Gold Factory.
There is a Bonus symbol depicting a gold coin with a top-hatted man engraved on it. This symbol acts as a scatter that pays the jackpot prize of $20,000 if five are present on the reels in any position. To grab the jackpot, you need to have placed the maximum possible bet on that winning spin.
Boiler Room bonus
Three or more Bonus scatters trigger a Boiler Room bonus. You are taken to the second screen displaying a giant tank with 12 smaller containers with liquid gold in them. You are invited to pick four containers to reveal what’s hidden behind them. There can be three outcomes of your selection:
- Random coin prize
- Reactor Bonus icon
- Free Spins icon.
You return to the base game after you have made four selections, if all the four items contain coins. Finding either of the special icons listed above triggers the respective event immediately. The Boiler Room feature will resume after either second-level bonus is completed, if there are any picks remain on the first level.
This is the second-level round that you enter upon picking a respective icon in the Boiler Room feature. You will find yourself standing inside a reactor building and are offered to start picking oval-shaped items stuck into the reactor unit. There are 12 selectable items, each containing a random amount of money but two of these hide a Malfunction icon which ends the feature, if picked. For every unselected item, you are granted a kind of a consolation prize equaling your total bet in the base game.
In the Boiler Room round, you have the chance of picking the Free Spins icon and win 10 to 35 free spins with all prizes doubled.
