Gold N Rocks (Microgaming)
Golden Rock Studios has partnered with Microgaming to create a slot titled, Gold N Rocks. This slot machine joins many others that are already available, and whose theme revolves around gold mining.
However, these two developers have added a few new ideas to spice up this overused theme. I had the privilege of playing this slot on my favourite online casino, and here is my experience:
Gold N Rocks uses a 5x5 reel set-up, but with the help of some features, it’s possible to get a 5x10 reel set-up. Combinations will form via the help of adjacent symbols, and the Tumbling Reels will assist in triggering the wins.
Present are three forms of in-reel modifiers which you can unlock. These three are mega wilds, random wilds, multipliers, alongside other features like free spins.
Betting and Prizes
Placing a wager is a straightforward undertaking, and the least amount allowed per spin is $0.50, while the MAX is $50.
Even with medium volatility, Gold N Rocks is able to deliver excellent top payouts that can go to as much as 6,094x the stake, per spin.
Gold N Rocks Slot Features
To form new combos, you will require adjacent symbols which must also be similar. This will then trigger the game’s Tumbling Reels mechanic, which will go ahead and replace the winning symbols.
This will also give way to a new set of symbols, where up to 10 rows are possible. Initially, the slot offers only 5 unlocked rows plus 1 that is blocked. The new wins triggered will contribute to a Mega Wild meter.
With 3 Dynamites (scatters), I was able to trigger 8 free spins, and any additional scatter after that rewarded with 1 more free spin. At this stage, the multipliers work the best, and they can get to as high as10x.
Another great feature present on Gold N Rocks is the 100 Rollercoaster Spins, which appears randomly at any point while you are playing.
Theme & Design
Microgaming and Golden Rock Studios has used a gold mining theme for this slot. Most of the symbols present are related to the theme of this game.
The symbols that I found on Gold N Rocks include Wild Sunset, a mine entrance, dynamite, gold-filled cart, a pickaxe (shovel), bags filled with gold nuggets, and a lamp.
Gold N Rocks slot is a very interesting slot machine, and I enjoyed every moment of my gaming sessions. It uses some unique features like the match 3-style action, which is very helpful in aiding you to advance and unlock more modifiers.
The slot is medium in volatility meaning it’s a little risky to play, and I do not recommend it to beginners.
