Black Gold Megaways Slot Review
Black Gold Megaways is the Megaways debut of Stakelogic. Following the example of Red Tiger Gaming, Blueprint Gaming and NextGen Gaming, Stakelogic has also purchased an official Megaways license from Big Time Gaming. Big Time Gaming slots are doing extremely well online and that is entirely thanks to the Megaways mechanism.
Black Gold Megaways is of course about the search for oil, also called the black gold. Or Texas Tea. On Black Gold Megaweays you pull quite a lot of cracks out of the ground. You play the bonus with an ascending multiplier without a ceiling. The profit opportunities are therefore literally unlimited. And then you have five more features in the basic game, with Wild Multipliers up to and including x10 winning.
How to play at Black Gold Megaways Slot?
You select your bets via a handy scroll bar, known from, for example, Play’n Go slots. The minimum bet is € 0.20 and you can bet a maximum of € 40.00 per spin. We have written a great article about how Megaways slot machines work. That is why in this Black Gold Megaways slot machine reviews only briefly: the number of symbols per reel varies per spin. For each spin, the number of symbols on each reel is randomly determined. In the worst case, there are two on the first and the last reel plus three on the middle four reels. Above the middle four reels there is one extra row of symbols. In the best case scenario you have no less than 117,649 ways to win. Are you running a winning combination? Then the winning symbols explode and new symbols replace them. This continues until you do not spin a new winning combination. You can then try to double or quadruple your winnings in the “Gamble feature”.
Symbols and payouts
You win if you play a combination of 3, 4, 5 or 6 symbols. These symbols must – on the first reel – be on consecutive reels. Where exactly on the reels, that doesn't matter on Megaways slots. The prospector is the exception to the rule and pays out from a combination of two pieces. It will of course only be really fun if you run more gold diggers. No less than six, that means 50 times your bet per combination of six. That can go fast. For example, if you have 2 on every reel, that already counts as 64 winning combinations. Other symbols are a blowing bull with dollars in its mouth, a gold digger lamp, a gold digger helmet and the inevitable playing cards. The dynamite bars count as Wild for all other symbols.
At the top of your screen, on top of the extra row of symbols, there is another row. Here you usually see beautiful pictures of the desert in South West America. But sometimes a feature also appears here.
There are five different features that you can trigger at the top of your game screen:
- Random gives you a random number of extra Wilds on the middle five reels.
- Multiplier provides your Multiplier Wildss on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and / or 5th reel. The multiplier per Wild is a maximum of x10.
- Double-Up gives you a doubling of the total winnings that you take during the spin in which this feature is triggered.
- Stacked gives you 1 or 2 stacks with Wild symbols. These end up on the middle five reels.
- Destroyer ensures that all regular symbols explode. So you have a new chance of winning.
These features ensure that the basic game never gets boring. It would not surprise us if the “feature bar” on top of your game screen became standard on Megaways slots.
The derricks with which the oil is pumped from the glowingly hot American desert soil. These derricks act as a scatter bonus symbol. You need four to trigger the free spins bonus. That gives you 12 free spins. Each additional derrick is good for 5 extra free spins. The difference with the basic game is that during the bonus spins a multiplier is linked to the “cascade”. The multiplier increases by 1 per cascade. For example: you win in one spin. Then the winning symbols explode and new symbols fall down. A multiplier of x2 applies to this second cascade. And do you win again and will there be a third cascade? Then there is a multiplier of x3. And so you can (in theory) score an unlimited multiplier.
