In this Gold Factory slot from Microgaming, all that it takes to create gold is 5 reels, 50 paylines and some intricate bonus features! Join in on the fun together as the inventor, and his assistant conjure up some of the world’s rarest metals right here in his factory!
There are three different bonus features to take part in, and a massive top prize of 619,000 coins from one spin.
The slot is played over 5 reels and a total of 50 paylines. There are 10 paying symbols, where the wild pays the most, closely followed by the rest of the symbols, starting with the inventor and the assistant. The wild will substitute for all other symbols except for the scatter symbol.
The game takes place inside the factory where there’s a lot of metal and gold lying around. The reels are framed by cogwheels and have the Spin and Autoplay buttons underneath the reels. The game itself works very smoothly, although we do feel that there are too many clicks to get to the paytable information, which, however, is more of a Microgaming issue than a Gold Factory issue.
The slot also works without issues on portable devices such as smartphones and tablets, no matter if they are iOS, Android or Windows operating.
The music in this casino game is an intense one, and it reminds us of a cartoon or children’s TV-show. It does still capture the crazy adventures of the inventor and his assistant, so if you want to immerse yourself in the story, we recommend that you play with sound.
Even the sound effects from winning combination increase the feeling of a cartoon and carnival, and during the bonus features, the inventor will speak to you as you play.
It’s really during the bonus feature that you’ll get to appreciate this casino game fully. The gold coin scatters will trigger the bonus if three or more land on the reels, and the number that land on the reels will also determine the multiplier for the game. Landing five symbols on the reels will provide you with a 200x multiplier!
This is the main bonus feature, which is a pick-and-win-feature. You get to choose 4 out of 12 boilers to reveal the prize. Here you can win cash prizes, or get access to the other two bonus features - Free Spins & the Reactor Bonus. If you trigger one of the additional bonuses before using your 4 picks, the Boiler Room will resume after the bonus.
Free Spins: A press of a button decides the number of Free Spins awarded, between 10 and 35. The Free Spins are played just like the base game, plus the multiplier.
Reactor Bonus: Yet another pick-and-win-game, where you get to pick reactors until you pick a Malfunction icon.
This is a golden nugget of a game that gives plenty of winning opportunities across the reels. The bonus features are rather innovative, which also ensures that no other game round will be the same. The max coin win in the game is high, so there’s plenty to be won. We could’ve done with a paytable that was a bit easier to locate, but all in all, this is an enjoyable game title from the masterminds at Microgaming.
