You’re back at the best bingo site this side of the solar system, although we’d be astounded if there was a bingo site on the other side of the solar system. Regardless, we’re bringing all players up to speed on a brand new slot that is now available to play, right here, without delay. Hyper Gold comes to you courtesy of Gameburger Studios, and while not using an entire original bonus feature, this is one of the online slots that makes the respins via the Link&Win feature work pretty well. Not to leave you with only one bonus feature, Hyper Gold also has a free spins feature for good measure. Let's check it all out and see how hyper the gold really is.
Gameburger Studios is quite a strange name, and might also be a bit unfamiliar to all our faithful readers. This stable is a subsidiary of Microgaming, one of the powerhouse games providers of the online casino industry, so not to worry about whether the production quality will be worth a pinch. The slot opens up to show 5 reels x 3 rows for a pretty basic set up. On this grid, there are 25 paylines on which 3, 4 and 5 of a kind winning symbol combinations can form, which is how it stays all through play. Don't expect any expanding reels. As far as themes go, there isn't really one we can discuss. There’s a disco looking background to the reels, with the use of neon lights scattered about to add to the 80s vibe.
Stepping away from the aesthetics, all the slot machine enthusiasts will be happy to know that there is a healthy reward no matter the risk you choose to undertake. The most you'll be able to win on any spin is 12,5000x your stake, so while it might be hard to achieve, it also proves a tantalising prospect coming into the slots session. There isn't a very taxing maximum bet for all the serious thrill-seekers taking to the reels of Hyper Gold, maxing out at 20 per stake. The least you can wager is 0.10, although if you're going that low, you might as well play in demo mode as a free slots version. Going this route, while serving as a good test, might make you live in regret should you have landed the win of a lifetime in demo mode.
The symbol in Hyper Gold that represents the whole headline of the game is the casino chip. This is the Link&Win symbol and will trigger the Link&Win bonus. Another symbol that triggers a bonus is the scatter, which triggers free spins. The last special icon is the wild, which substitutes all regular symbols – not casino chip and scatter – to possibly complete a winning symbol combination.
Expect to see the regular symbols landing most often, as these are purely landing to land in winning combinations. The ones that carry lower values are the playing card royals J, Q, K and A, while the symbols that you’d really rather form winning combinations are the gold coins, the gold coins and gold bar, the gold bars and the gold $. The gold $ serves as the highest paying regular symbol.
The Link&Win feature is triggered when you land six or more casino chips on the same spin. All symbols will be removed from the grid except the chips that started the feature. Three respins are then awarded, with only chips or black spaces landing on the grid. Every chip that lands resets the respins to 3 and will also carry a multiplier of between 1.5x – 20x your stake. Chips can also carry jackpot amounts in the Mini, Minor and Major, with the major paying 750x. You can also win the Mega jackpot by filling the entire grid with chips.
Landing a scatter on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin will award you with ten free spins. What makes the free spins intriguing is that a 3x3 symbol will fall on the middle 3 reels on every spin, and if a scatter lands as the giant block icon, another ten free spins are added.
There are a few things that come into play when choosing which online slots titles you want to play, and one of them is likely how good the bonus play will be. You'll be happy to know that in Hyper Gold, it's really good, especially seeing as there are two bonus features, both of which seem to come with added value. There's potential for you to not have a super great time on these five reels, but a hyper good time instead.
