- but why not try one of these?
Online slots fans will know that there a fair few mining themed games out there in casino land; the lure of gold to be found deep underground is similar to the lure of the riches to be had when spinning the reels and we make no apologies for that slightly tortured metaphor. This is Gopher Gold from Microgaming and in this game our little buck-toothed friend is the one searching for his fortune.
Gopher Gold is five reel slot with just five paylines and it’s something of a throwback to those days when spinning the reels was a bit simpler. There are no bonus features to contend with here so there’s nothing to distract you from the main action and that’s something which appeals to many players.
Gopher Gold is one of those slightly older Microgaming games in which the big colourful symbols take up all the room available. leaving no room for a lavishly designed background of any sort.
The basic symbols are the standard 10, J, Q, K and A but there are some cheery little images for the higher value ones; these include a hurricane lamp, a pick axe, a cart on rails piled high with gold nuggets and some exploding sticks of dynamite. The most valuable symbol is the Gopher Gold logo which is worth 12000x your line stake for five on an active payline.
The wild symbol is the gopher himself, complete with head torch and surrounded by gold; he will substitute for all other symbols on the reels.
While there are no bonus features as such. this is one of those rare slots in which you can make winning lines from right to left as well as left to right and although there are only five paylines, this still means you land plenty of small wins.
Gopher Gold Online Slot Playing Tips
Play with all five paylines active – you won’t win any more money proportionately but you will have more fun and that’s what spinning the reels should be about.
Gopher Gold is a little dated but it’s bright and cheerful and is a good choice if you’re looking for something simple to wile away the afternoon.
