"Gold" by Spandau Ballet was one of the biggest hits of the 1980s, and even to this day, people of all ages can be heard belting out the lyrics.
And, one international slots manufacturer who seems to have particularly taken heed of lines such as "you've got the power to know" is Big Time Gaming, which has created an online slot called Gold in the song's honour. So, with a little luck, this glittering game could leave you "standing so tall" as you make off with some unbelievable wins courtesy of the Gold Briefcase which can award prizes of up to 10,000 times your bet, and the Gold Disc scatter which gives you a feast of free spins with all wins tripled. You can check out this bling-tastic online slot on your mobile or desktop with bets of 20p to £500, which proves that you don't need to have a high roller-style bank balance to be able to strike Gold!
More about the Software Provider
Big Time Gaming is probably best-known for creating an online slot called Bonanza, which features an exclusive Megaways pay structure that gives you as many as 117,649 ways to win. But, proving that Big Time Gaming is no one-hit wonder, are some equally enjoyable slots like Dragon Born, Danger High Voltage, Starquest, and Queen of Riches.
Appearance and Sound Effects
Gold is a slots game which graphically challenges the biggest jewellery collection of some of the world's richest multimillionaires. It literally sparkles on your screen with its reel surround that's made from hundreds of flashing LED lights, and even the game logo at the top of the reels is made to look like a valuable watch strap. While an instrumental version of Spandau Ballet's biggest hit plays in the background, you can start filling your personal bank vault with cash by making wins with the slot's paytable symbols, which are (naturally) all gold in colour. There are ingots, suitcases, watches, luxury cars, signet rings, credit cards, and bejewelled playing card symbols (A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9).
Bonuses and Special Features
The gameplay is fairly straightforward as there are just two special symbols to watch out for.
The first is the wild symbol which is represented by the Briefcase, and it can substitute for any symbol except the scatter. The wild also doubles the value of all wins it helps to make, and if you land two, three, four, or five in a winning combination, you gain 10 times, 20 times, 2,000 times or 10,000 times your bet respectively.
The second special symbol is the scatter, which is represented by the Gold Disc. It awards a cash prize whenever it lands anywhere on the reels in two or more locations, and when three or more are present on the reels, the Free Spins Bonus is activated. You start off with fifteen free spins, but you can re-trigger the feature with more scatters. And, the more free games you have, the better as all wins are automatically tripled in size!
Gold uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and twenty fixed paylines, and has an average RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 95.025%.
The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
Even if you're not mad about the 80's, your love for BTG's slots game, Gold could be "like a high prison wall" as you'll want to stick around once you discover its catchy soundtrack, generous free spins bonus, and high-paying wild symbols!
