The Gold Briefcase Wild
The Gold Briefcase represents the wild symbol in the Gold online slots game. The wild symbol can be used to substitute all other symbols of the reels, except for the scatter symbols. These can then be used to make up the best possible winning combination, increasing the player’s chances of winning.
The wild symbols are simultaneously the symbols with the highest value in the Gold slots game, and landing five wild symbols on the active pay line will result in an immediate payout of 10 000 coins. This is the highest single payout of the game.
Scatter Symbols and Bonus Rounds
The Gold online slots game also presents a bonus round which enables players to access free spins. This free spins round is activated when players land three or more scatter symbols, that is, the Gold LP Record, in one spin. The number of scatter symbols that appear will determine the additional scatter win.
Once the free spins round has been activated, players will immediately be rewarded with fifteen free spins. This bonus feature also comes with a multiplier, and every win will be tripled.
Free spins may be re-activated at any point during the free spins bonus round if another three or more scatter symbols are landed.
