As online slot machines get ever more complex in terms of features, graphics and gameplay, there is still and always will be a significant market for the the classic three reel machine. Gold Rush from Net Entertainment is just such a slot and on one hand it’s a dead simple return to a bygone era of casino gaming and on the other it’s a razor sharp representation of a classic Vegas-style slot.
No download is necessary to play Gold Rush and when you first load up the game you’re presented with a loverly casino environment; other slot machines line the walls and in front of you is the machine you will be playing. For the purists, even the cheesy carpeting on the floor is reminiscent of a bricks and mortar casino.
You can play this game for free to get a taste of what you will be spending your money on and it’s handy to know that the free version is identical to the real money version. In this manner you can make sure you like the game before you invest any of your hard earned cash.
The game itself is as simple as you would imagine; unlike regular video slots there are no wild or scatter symbols, free spins or bonus games. All you have is a selection of classic symbols, three fixed levels of betting and one line on which to lay a wager. You can bet €0.20, €0.40 or €0.60 per line.
The symbols are the Gold Rush logo, cherries, sevens, fives, mining carts and bars. Three Gold Rush logos will win you the top prize and the prizes decrease in value from there as you can see from the screenshot above.
Fans of progressive jackpots will be pleased to hear that Gold Rush is connected to Net Entertainment’s progressive network and if you’re playing this option, a small portion of each stake will be going to the progressive jackpot fund. When you’re playing for real money you can see how many others are playing on the progressive network as well as the current jackpot and the value of the last one which was claimed. Percentage player return for Gold Rush is 95.4%.
