There is a touch of the Pirates of the Caribbean about the Hunt For Gold slot game. As the slot loads, you will get a view of a bay at night with an eerie looking pirate ship waiting to dock. The rocks provide cover for the pirate ship, so the locals don’t see what’s about to happen. Your job is to get to the treasure first, so stay hidden as much as possible and you may just get there before those pillaging pirates.
All of the symbols on the reels are designed to look like they are placed on a treasure map, with some even having a tattoo style scroll running through them. Treasure chests, red 7s, golden bells, grapes, lemons, cherries and golden medals can be found floating around the reels of this game.
The big cash values can be won by triggering the progressive jackpots on offer and we can’t tell you how much you can win, because these pots grow and grown until they reach their peak and pop. Tasty Jackpot, Luxury Jackpot and Dream Chance Jackpot are the three post on offer with the lowest amount being offered in the Tasty Jackpot and the highest offered with the Dream Chance Jackpot.
Five of a kind of the red 7s will award a 150x multiplier win, with the golden bell and grapes both offering 111x your stake.
To starts with, you have the gamble feature – this is known as the Double Up and Triple Up games. You can trigger the gamble round on any base game win. Choose to either double or triple that payline win by pressing the relevant button. During the Double Up game, you will be required to pick 1 of the 4 symbols to double your money – the Triple Up game required you to choose 1 of the 3 symbols to win.
Five scatter treasure chests will trigger the Dynamite Bonus. You will receive up to 4 sticks of dynamite to open the treasure chest. A map will be shown on your screen – study that map and decide where to set your dynamite off, but be careful, because only the amount found in the last treasure chest will be awarded. You can decide to cash out before using all of your sticks of dynamite.
You can trigger one of the progressive jackpots by collecting the golden medal scatter symbols:
- Three awards the bronze wheel for the chance to win the Tasty Jackpot
- Four awards the silver wheel for the chance to win the Luxury Jackpot
- Five awards the golden wheel for the chance to win the Dream Chance Jackpot
You will get to spin the wheel that you triggered, should you land on an arrow, you will progress to the next wheel. Land on the bronze, silver or gold section on the relevant wheels to win that relevant progressive jackpot.
Hunt For Gold is a medium to high variance slot machine with plenty of big wins waiting to be discovered. Triggering those bonus wheels is just the start of some serious fun and whilst we managed to trigger these often, we didn’t win a progressive jackpot.
There is a return to player (RTP) percentage of 97.00% with this slot game. Big wins will fall during the Dynamite Bonus, unless you can win one of the jackpots on offer.
