On top of these older slots, they have added the most recent Nextgen slot simply titled Golden, which is is a 5×3 reel, 243-way slot playable from 0.25 credits per spin that loosely celebrates the year of the rooster (2017).
Golden Slot – Base Gameplay
The Golden Slot is set in a farmyard setting and uses a unique Rooster symbol on the middle reels that not only acts as the Scatter bonus symbol but is also a wild symbol, the rest of the reels are made up of the usual mix of lower and higher paying symbols (maximum 5 of a kind win is 2000 coins).
The main free spins bonus round is triggered by landing 3 of the special Rooster symbols on the middle reels, once triggered you are granted 10 free spins, during the free spins the special Rooster symbols become slightly larger covering 2 section of the reels, and a 5x multiplier is applied to any 5 of a kind wins which can really boost the wins from this slot with multiple winning combinations possible.
The Golden slot also has a re-trigger feature during the bonus which will grant further free spins and with these symbols acting as wilds, having all 3 land in the same spin can lead to huge wins too!

Golden Slot – Free Spins Round
Once the main bonus is triggered by landing 3 of the Rooster Scatter/Wilds on the middle 3 reels you are granted an initial 10 free spins, the ability to re-trigger the bonus, and a special 5x multiplier which is applied only to wins that are 5 of a kind.
The special wild symbol is larger that normal and covers 2 positions on the reels, which can then result in multiple 5 of a kind winning combinations during the bonus round.
Golden Slot is a fairly standard cartoon themed release from Nextgen, it offers a simple to understand pay any-way payline structure and has a fantastic return to player of 97.222%.
The gameplay doesn’t offer too much in the way of innovation, but the special Scatter/Wild symbols can produce some amazing wins during the bonus round when all 3 land in the same spin (check our screenshots).
During our playtests, most of the bonus rounds were in the region of 20x up to 100x stake wins, which is still very respectable and given the very high RTP this could just be an amazing slot for wagering that has a few huge wins lurking in it too.
