Gimme Gold Megaways
What’s The Deal
Gimme Gold Megaways slot from Inspired Gaming takes you to familiar ground, Wombat fans. Or should we say familiar underground? Seeing as the action is set in a quarry. Ha! Yes, just like Diamond Mine, and our personal favourite Bonanza, you’ll be mining for wins in this new release.
But will it stand out from the crowd? Well, we’ve heard that the Free Spins feature is pretty bonza – and as always with a Megaways slot, the payouts can be spectacular… It’s certainly got more ways to win than a standard set up like the Amber Sterling’s Mystic Shrine slot (crikey, that’s a mouthful isn’t it?)
Graphics and Theme
Basic cartoon graphics are what you can expect here – but that’s not to say they’re not fun! Your reels are set in a ramshackle quarry and the sun is shining brightly in the sky with a few clouds floating by.
Your lug holes will be treated to the kind of banjo soundtrack that you’ve heard in these kinds of games before. It’ll certainly get your feet a-tapping.
The graphics are nothing new, but nice all the same.
Your premium reel icons are; a mining pick axe, a shovel, a cart full overflowing with gold coins and an old miner bloke (who looks like he’s seen better days).
The lower paying icons take the form of the 9, 10, J, Q, K & A playing cards.
The Wild will land on the upper reel only and will substitute for all symbols (bar the scatter) to give you more winning combos.
The wooden barrel with Bonus on it will be your scatter icon.
Gimme Gold Megaways slot has 6 standard reels and an extra horizontal reel at the top of the screen. While the rows will vary from 2 to 7 randomly on each spin. That’s the beauty of Megaways games and is how you can get to those all important 117,749 ways to win. That’s even more than the Scarab Gold slot, but that’s what we have come to expect with these Megaways games.
The minimum bet here is 0.20 coins, while the maximum wager is 10.00 credits which is pretty low. Still, the maximum possible payout in this game manages to be 25,000x your bet.
Common to most new games nowadays, this reel mechanic sees new symbols drop onto the reels from above, to replace others that formed the previous winning combo and have exploded! The Cascade drops will continue until no more wins can be made.
Click on the Fortune Bet and you’ll have a better chance of triggering the Free Spins feature – as more bonus icons will land on the reels. This will set you back another 50% on top of your current bet. Is it worth it? You decide.
This cool extra can be randomly triggered. A number of dynamite sticks will hit the reels, and then all turn into the very same random symbol from the pay table. This can produce some decent pay outs!
Landing 4x or more Bonus Scatter symbols, and you’ll get a minimum of 12 Free Spins and a x1 multiplier! Plus, this multiplier increases by 1X on each winning cascade to an unlimited number!
And last but not least, for each new scatter symbol that lands, you’ll be given x2 more Free Spins to add to your tally.
So, is this the new Bonanza? Well, not quite Wombat fans, but Gimme Gold Megaways matches up pretty well, and we are big fans of the unlimited win multiplier in the bonus.
The payout potential is also good, even at the lower end of the betting range. And let’s face it, you can never go wrong with a Megaways™ game, can you?
Wombat Score: 4.5/5
