Black Gold is an online slot that is distributed by BetSoft. Since BetSoft games are not restricted, players from the United States are able to play. The game is relatively simple, though very heavy in terms of graphics and animation. Generally speaking, this game is built around its multiple bonuses and reel multipliers, and this is how most big wins will be accomplished.
Black Gold is all about the user experience when it comes to sound effects. In fact, it could be argued that the game is a bit overwhelming. A banjo and very typical old western, country type music is played in the background while the slot is open. You do have the option to turn the volume on the game off, of course.
The graphics and illustrations in the game are very realistic. Black Gold involves the player with a number of different features and animations that vary based on the result of your spin, from payout multipliers to a galloping horse and your wins popping off the screen.
The best regular reel symbol that you can get in Black Gold is of the character that looks like a Cowboy, which pays 400 for 5 of the symbol on the same line. Trust us, you won’t miss him. The next best symbol is the Horse, followed by Oil Barrels, a Cowboy Hat, a dripping Oil Pipe, a Wheel, Horn Decoration, and finally, a Private Property Sign.
There are three different types of bonus rounds in the Black Gold online slot.
Nighttime Free Spins Mode-In order to activate the Nighttime Free Spins Mode, you must obtain 3 or more of the barn symbols. These do not have to be on any particular lines nor do they have to be consecutive. As long as you land 3 barns, anywhere, in a spin, you will earn the Nighttime Bonus. When playing this bonus, all Barns become wild and also feature multipliers. There are no retriggers on this bonus, however wins can be multiplied by up to 10x.
Drilling for Oil Click Me-The Drilling for Oil bonus round is a bit less exciting and lasts much shorter than the other bonuses in Black Gold. In this bonus feature, you will be able to pick one of 3 Oil Drills, any time you find 3 Oil Drills in your spin. You will pick one particular Oil Drill and be rewarded with a random prize.
Higher or Lower Bonus Round-This bonus round is unique from almost any other slot out there. The Higher or Lower Bonus is activated when you receive an Oil Pump symbols on reels 1, 2, and 5. You must receive the Oil Pump on these exact reels. When the round starts, you will have a number on your machine. From here, you guess whether the next number is higher or lower, and win credits accordingly. The entire round lasts until you accumulate either four hits or misses (right or wrong) guesses on the game.
Respins are perhaps the most apparent feature in Black Gold slots. Each time that your spin pays out a win, you will also received a respin on the center line. If you are able to continue generating wins with the respins, your wins will be multiplied by 1x, 2x, 3x, and then 5x.
The max that you can win on respins is 5x your bet. Since respins happen every time that you have any win, they are very frequent.
