Ghouls Gold is yet another classic 3-reel slot machine from the BetSoft collection of games. This 3D classic slot focuses on paranormal activities, ones that can return some big cash amounts for little stakes. There are 3 reels and 5 paylines on offer, which you can adjust at any time – play one payline or all 5 if you prefer.
You will find some frightfully good features to the slot, but nothing out of the ordinary as this is styled on an old-school slot game. You can spin the reels from 3.00 to a maximum of just 15.00 – the more you stake per spin, the more you can win. Unlike other classic slots, you can take advantage of holds, wilds, a bonus game and a huge progressive jackpot when you play.
When you think of paranormal activity, you build up an image of some scary stuff, but you won’t be running for cover whilst playing the Ghouls Gold slot machine, that’s for sure. Ghouls Gold features a fun and cute design full of the scary stuff in life, such as bats, ghosts in the shape of bedsheets with holes cut for eyes and haunted houses. The screen is black with a haunted house to the left with a full moon shining into the night. A ‘bed sheet’ style ghost hovers over the haunted house with the progressive jackpot total ticking over within the bullion bar beneath him.
The reels of the game are 3D white with bright green running through them to highlight the paylines. Bet per line, bet max and spin are on the purple and red bubble buttons to the lower of the reels. Symbols include brown sacks, coins, ghosts, brown jackpot sacks, bats, green 7s, gold 7s, candles, cauldrons and a haunted house.
You could send a shiver down your spin when you trigger the progressive jackpot on offer. We can’t tell you exactly how much you could win, as this changes every second. Three or more jackpot sacks will award the cash sum sitting in the progressive jackpot meter. Base game wins can return a maximum of 500 coins – bet max and land three of a kind of the haunted house symbols to get this biggest cash sum.
Unlike other 3-reel slot machines, Ghouls Gold offers a few features to keep gameplay exciting and rewarding at the same time. To start with, you have a standard wild – this is the golden coin wild symbol and it will substitute for all other symbols (bar the jackpot symbol) to help create winning combinations.
Land 3 ghoulish ghosts on your payline and you will activate the bonus feature. Collect as many ghouls as you can by clicking on them. There’s a time limit in place so you better be quick. The more ghouls you capture, the more credits you’ll win. White, yellow and blue ghosts whizz up your screen – the white offering the least cash and the blue offering the biggest cash.
The way the reels are designed is superb, when you spin just the bottom set of reels will produce symbols. You can choose to hold certain symbols and then the above symbols will randomly spin in the hope of hitting a winning payline.
Scarily Good Slots
If you like to be scared out of your wits, there’s another frightfully good slot game from Betsoft that you can play – The Ghouls. The 5-reel, 20-payline slot machine offers some scary characters such as Frankenstein and a witch to add huge cash to your bankroll.
Random Good Stuff
At first, we couldn’t work out how the reels worked, but it soon became obvious when we played. You play one set of reels and at random times, the upper sets will come into play, an example of this was when we spun in a gold 7 on reel 1 and 3 – held them and the upper reels spun when we couldn’t find the middle 7 to complete a winning payline. Ghouls Gold isn’t too complicated and offers some great fun.
For a medium to high variance slot, we were thrilled with the number of wins falling on the reels. Try and catch the blue ghosts during the bonus game as these offer the biggest cash.
