Hyper Gold Slot (Microgaming)
Hyper Gold is a Microgaming casino game that is brought to you by Gameburger Studios. It is available only to Microgaming casinos that use the Quickfire technology developed by the larger firm.
Inside, you'll find a rather straightforward theme, with common image ranging from precious metals to casino chips. Although the design is not the most visually appealing, it more than makes up for it in other ways, primarily through features and returns.
I love Microgaming slots, and after playing this title for real money, here is my detailed review:
Upon launching the slot on my browser, I quickly noticed that it is set on the common 5x3 reels design, with up to 25 pay-lines.
This slot does pretty well with the features, and among them is Link & Win, free spins, respins, wilds, scatters, and some mega symbols.
Betting and Prizes
In Hyper Gold, I realised that there is the potential to spend extremely little on wager. I could only use a maximum of $20 per spin, while the least amount allowed on each spin is $0.10.
By activating the Win Boost option, you can use as much as $50 as a boost for a higher chance of accessing the Link & Win respins. This option multiplies the bet by 2.5x and can be used in conjunction with the Link & Win respins.
I enjoy Hyper Gold to the maximum, you can aim at the top jackpot of up to 12,500xs the stake.
It is obvious that this slot bears high volatility, especially when you consider its high potential, but the RTP of 96.08% keeps it in check.
Hyper Gold Features
First and foremost, keep an eye out for the Wild, a symbol that will prove to be valuable in a variety of situations.
For starters, you can use it as a substitution, and it is a symbol that has the potential to extend upwards when it lands on the reels. It is also capable of paying out up to 500x the stake per line on its own if you land a full line with it.
The free spins feature in Hyper Gold is my all-time favourite. Mega symbols (3x3) will appear on the centre reels throughout the feature, which will last for a total of ten rounds. You'll need a mega-sized scatter symbol to cover all three reels to earn additional 10 spins (2-4).
Link & Win is a respin feature that will require the presence of 6 symbols in combination with the Casino Chip to be activated. Perhaps you're already familiar with it, as we've seen something similar in many other games in recent months (Hold & Win style respins).
Theme and Design
Hyper Gold doesn't make much of an effort to tell its story. It's just your standard casino and money-themed slot machine, and although it’s a modern slot, I don’t find it quite engaging.
Its symbols include icons casino chips, logos, scatters, images of gold bars, gold coins, and dollar signs, and Royals as low-value symbols.
Hyper Gold is a very standard set of features; however, the free spins do benefit from the addition of mega symbols, which helps to boost them a little.
I love the slot’s potential, but given its vicious volatility, I can only recommend it to more experienced gamers.
