- but why not try one of these?
How much longer will the world be relying on oil for it’s power? Cleverer people than us can probably answer that question but what we do know is that there’s a very small niche of online slots based on this theme. Betsoft have produced one of their own, it’s called Black Gold and it’s full of oil drilling-themed bonus features – read al about it below.
Black Gold is a five reel slot with three rows and up to thirty paylines; the reels pin on a huge wooden noticeboard behind which we can see various oil wells tapping into the earth. Sitting on a horse to the left of those reels is a moustachioed chap with a huge hat – presumably the owner.
The symbols are all related to the theme and include the owner, his horse, some oil drums, a hat, dripping oil, a rusty valve, some mounted animal horns and a ‘Private Property’ notice.
There’s no wild symbol but the bonus icons include a barn, a drill and an oil pump, all of which activate various extra features.
Nighttime Free Spins
This is triggered by landing three or more of the barn symbols anywhere in view; ten free spins will now be yours on a set of reels which includes that barn symbol. It’s an extra wild symbol and it will increase the multiplier value with each successive win up to a maximum of 10x.
Drilling For Oil Click Me
Trigger this by landing three or more of the drill symbols anywhere in view; now just choose one of the drills on show for an instant win.
Higher Or Lower Bonus Round
This is triggered by landing three of the oil pump symbol on reels one, two and five and you will now play a Higher/Lower game to win a prize. Four correct/incorrect guesses ends the game.
Centre Reel Spins
This is a base game feature which occurs on every win – with every winning combination the centre reel will respin and if it results in another win the multiplier will increase by 1x up to a maximum of 5x. Your multiplier progress is shown in the meter in the top right hand corner.
Black Gold has loads to offer in terms of bonus features and it has some amusing, high quality graphics to spice up the gameplay. It’s well worth checking out.
