Hunt for Gold : An Easy as Pie Five-Payline Progressive Jackpot Video Slot
Hunt for Gold is a 5-reel PlaynGo video slot with five (5) non-fixed paylines using mostly classic fruit images, a bell, a treasure chest and 777 as reel icons. The highest paying is the archetypal lucky number 777, as the symbol pays as many as 150 in coin rewards. Payline wins can be achieved by forming matched combinations, starting from the first or from the fifth reels, flowing toward the opposite direction.
This is an easy as pie game, as the only special symbol in play is a Scatter Symbol, represented by the Treasure Chest icon. A spin that returns with five (5) Treasure Chest Scatters appearing on any row and in any reel activates the Hunt for Gold Bonus Game. Matched Treasure Chest Scatter combos pay the equivalent paytable coin-value, without the need to fall on or follow a payline pattern.
The Hunt for Gold Bonus Game is a straightforward Pick Me game that awards four Treasure Chest choices. A bonus game player is rewarded with the coin prize revealed by the Treasure Chest selected. However, the bonus game awards only one mystery prize as extra pay. The amount being the last coin reward unraveled. In playing the game, bonus players must consider the possibility of forfeiting a higher reward in exchange for one that has a lower value.
If the last coin reward seems good enough, a bonus player has the option to end the bonus game. Otherwise, he or she can continue unraveling the rest of the mystery rewards in order to win the top prize of 111x the value of the total bet placed.
The PlaynGo Gamble Feature
The Gamble feature is activated at random, giving players a chance to double or triple the value of his or her most recent winnings. Actually, it is another Pick-Me type of game. Players have to make a correct guess, in order to win and continue. An incorrect guess ends the Gamble Game and forfeits a player's gambled winnings.
