When Big Time Gaming entered the online market 10 years ago, their first title was Gold. A game which uses the famous Spandau Ballet track from the 80’s.
Now to celebrate this 10 year anniversary, they have released Gold Megaways. An updated version of that iconic original game.
Gold Megaways comes with 6 reels that are up to 7 symbols high, giving the possibility of 117,649 ways maximum during normal play.
All known symbols like a watch, car and plain are present, including standard card symbols.
Wild symbols may appear as normal wild symbols or as x3 wild symbols on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 only. The scatter symbol is the golden record symbol and appears on all reels.
Gold Megaways also comes with cascading symbols. Meaning any winning combination is removed and new symbols fall on top for the option of another win.
Free Spins Feature
There are three ways to trigger the free spins feature.
- 3 scatter symbols will award 12 free spins, for every extra scatter symbols 4 more free spins are added to that total
- Exchange a win of 70+ times your stake for 12 free spins. 70 times the stake will be used for buying the free spins, the rest will be collected
- Win more than 20 times your stake to spin a wheel and either win the free spins feature or lose your winnings
Before free spins start another wheel will determine the number of starting ways. This is a minimum of 14.000 to a maximum of 117.649 ways.
During free spins you can land an expanding symbol. This will change into two regular symbols, now increasing the number of symbols on that reel. A reel can grow to a maximum of 10 symbols high. When a reel becomes 10 symbols high, you will be rewarded with 8 extra free spins.
If all reels are 10 symbols you will have the maximum ways of 1.000.000 ways active!
Gold Megaways might seem like only an updated Gold. But this game is so much more.
I like that the game is still very recognizable because of the symbols, sounds and theme. But this game is a true upgrade from the original.
During the base game, you can get some decent wins, but getting those 70+ wins is hard, so triggering the bonus that way might not be easy.
But when you get the free spins feature you will see why I am so excited about this game. It feels a lot like White Rabbit, but with some added extras.
Of course starting on those higher number of ways is the best, especially since you want to increase those reels to 10 symbols high. When you get some huge reels, this game is amazing and will give huge rewards, each and every spin. Including that x3 multipliers, it can become a real payer.
