Gold Lab Slot - Quickspin Review and Playtest
Casumo Casino has, in the last few days, added the brand new slot release from Quickspin titled the Gold Lab slot, featuring a crazy scientist who is trying to create gold with a concoction of jewels, potions, and beakers on the reels.
If you want to play the Gold Lab slot early then, Casumo is going to be your best place to find this slot as it's live and playable now for real or play money.
Gold Lab uses a very nice cartoon theme with the crazy scientist reacting as you play, celebrating your wins, and bonus triggers/teases, all housed in a relatively regular 5x3 reel layout and using 25 fixed paylines. The main focus of this online slot centres around some extra special beaker symbols (Scatter symbols) that are present on reels 1, 3, and 5.
The main bonus round is triggered if you manage to land 3 of these golden scatter symbols. If you only manage to land 1 or 2 the symbols, they will be treated as regular beaker symbols and still create wins if any winning combinations are formed with that particular beaker symbol.
Gold Lab Slot Base Gameplay
The bonus round seemed reasonably easy to trigger in our playtesting, with bonus rounds coming at quite a steady pace. For those unfamiliar with Quickspin slots, they generally seem to be in the low to medium variance category, and the Gold Lab slot appears to be on par with previous releases.
With any online slot, there is, of course, some decent win potential in the bonus rounds, but in our playtesting, the majority of bonuses tended to range in the 25x to 70x range. Still, after playtesting over 2000 spins, we didn't see a shift in balance much in either direction, so possibly a good casino bonus wagering slot?
Gold Lab Slot - Bonus Round
The main bonus round is where things can start to get exciting. To trigger the free spins bonus round, you need to land 3 of the special Beaker Scatter symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5. This will then trigger the free spins round, where you start with an initial four free spins.
During the bonus round, you will notice there are some extra beaker symbols to the right of the slot machine. During the free spins, if you manage to land any other special Beaker symbols on the reels, then an extra free spin is awarded along with that corresponding beaker symbol being selected and turned into an additional Wild symbol on the reels for the remaining spins.
There are four different Wild beakers available that can be transformed into wild symbols. As such, a maximum of 4 extra re-spins is on offer during the bonus round.
If you land several of these beaker symbols, the reels will quickly become heavily stacked with wild symbols, making it relatively easy to score some impressive wins.
Overall the Gold Lab slot is another solid release from Quickspin, with a lovely cartoon theme and regular bonus rounds, although our personal preference would be a slightly more volatile offering from Quickspin, but certainly, players who are looking for some good playtime and lots of regular bonus round should enjoy this slot machine release.
The Gold Lab slot has an RTP (Return to Player) of 96.09%, ensuring you should enjoy some decent playtime with suitable bet sizes.
