Back in 2004 Playtech’s Gold Rally was your standard three reel, single play line, $5 coin size game. Since then it has been re-launched as a nine reel slot machine with eight play lines. The game also has a bonus screen. With a max bet of $16 per spin this is not your average online slot machine.
Playtech have created a user friendly interface that pleases the player with its amazing slot demo pragmatic graphics, sounds and simplicity. The game also has an “Options” feature where the player can customize the sound, speed and “Auto-play” settings. The theme of the game is based in a gold mine where lots of treasures are to be found.
Of course, as is the max bet, the jackpot displayed on the bottom of the screen meets a high roller’s expectations. The progressive jackpot starts form about $75,000 and has gone as high as $2,200,000. The average jackpot is around $727,000 which is a pretty good win.
In this version of the game each reel spins on its own, in contrast to the original three reels version. A player can win by getting a combination on vertical, horizontal and even diagonal lines.
A thing worth mentioning about this nine reel slot is that it has, except your standard line wins, quite a few extra plays as well. Three “Gold Rally” logos grant the player 500 coins, three gold horseshoes – 200, and three picks – 100 coins.
If the player gets all nine scattered scales on the screen and is playing the max bet he wins the progressive jackpot!
To spice things up a bit the guys at Playtech have added a bonus game. If the participant gets dynamite symbols on each corner of the screen the bonus game loads up. It is a map on which you can click and reveal prizes. If the prize is too small you can reveal another one and add both of them to your winnings.
As fun as it is, this game is for real money players only. When playing “Gold Rally” one as a pretty good chance of collecting the internet’s biggest online jackpot as it is won approximately every 8 weeks. If you are a fan of online slots and want a go with the high rollers this is your game.
