Gold Rally Slots - Playtech
ABOUT GOLD RALLY SLOTS
Launched back in 2004, Gold Rally has remained one of Playtech's most popular video slots up to date, and it is quite probably the best three reel game you will have ever played. Gold Rally only resembles those old-style slot machines, but it is much more similar to the contemporary games, seeing as how it contains eight paylines and numerous special features.
The storyline follows three seasoned gold miners on their latest attempt to dig up enough gold to retire from what is an incredibly difficult job. At the same time, the players will be on the quest of their own to find a way to life-changing payouts that can be won by activating Dynamite Bonus or high-value progressive jackpot.
HOW TO PLAY GOLD RALLY
Slot players will not have too many options when it comes to selecting the size of their wager since coin value is fixed at $2. They only get to choose the number of paylines to be active, with bet one and bet max buttons used to activate between 1 and 8 paylines. Bear in mind that the progressive jackpot can be won only when maximum eight lines are active.
Three matching icons on an active payline are required for a payout, with only horseshoe symbols paying out even when one or two of these appear on a payline. Meanwhile, Gold Scale Scatter is the only icon here that pays regardless of its position on the reels. Five or more of these anywhere will award Scatter Pays.
Three reel video slots rarely have a lot to offer in this particular department, but Gold Rally is clearly an exception to the rule. Even with the progressive jackpot aside, the game houses more than enough special perks and benefits that include Dynamite Bonus and Scatter Pays.
Dynamite symbols appearing in all four corners of the game screen trigger the Dynamite Bonus. Players are then required to mine for gold and can win a good selection of instant credit prizes based on their choices.
Scatter is depicted as a Gold Scale and it is by far the most desirable icon on the game screen. Five, six, seven and eight Scatters positioned anywhere award an instant prize of 5, 10, 50 and 200 credits respectively.
Gold Rally is linked to a progressive jackpot that starts at $75,000 and tends to pay out at least a couple hundred thousands, with 2% of each wager going towards the jackpot fund. The top prize is awarded when nine Gold Scale symbols are scattered on the reels, while maximum 8 paylines are active. If the said combination occurs at less than maximum bet, the player receives 5,000 coins.
GOLD RALLY ON MOBILE
This was one of Playtech's first high-profile games to appear on mobile, with the game available on tablet and smartphone since 2009. Simple graphics and easy game play ensure that the slot looks great on smaller screens, with all those special features loading quickly and without any glitches.
With coin value fixed at $2, Gold Rally is unlikely to appeal to casual gamers, but high rollers and those with large bankrolls will thoroughly enjoy impressive payouts in the main game as well as an opportunity to trigger the Dynamite Bonus and progressive jackpot which seeds at $75,000.
