Even though there are 25 paylines, playing Where's The Gold often feels like it's "all or nothing." Sometimes you'll sit down and win some fantastic prizes right off the bat, while other times you'll go for several spins without a single win.
The fact that there's no wild during standard play doesn't help matters either. We can see how this might put some players off but, with a theoretical RTP (return to player) percentage of just a hair under 95%, this slot is just as rewarding as others on the market give or take a percent or two.
While it's possible to rack up some very nice wins during standard play, the jewel in Where's The Gold's crown is its bonus round. After landing a bonus round, players choose one of the zany characters to determine how many wilds and free spins they'll get.
While it's true that players usually only get a handful of free spins, the large number of wilds combined with the generosity of the game during standard play means that it's a breeze to rack up large prizes during the bonus round. For example, we once increased our bankroll by tenfold during one of these bonus rounds.
