Go For Gold Slots

Go for Gold is an enticing name for a slot game, but does it give you everything you want to see in a slot? We are going to see if we can answer that, sorting through the various features to find out what it has in store. There is more than you’d imagine too, so let’s get underway with some questions and answers.

Developer information

This is a title you’ll find in the WGS collection, also called Wager Gaming Technology.

You can practice before playing for real

And we always suggest you do this if you can, because you never can tell whether a game is going to give you everything you like to see until you try it.

Does the theme involve gold?

It does, but it has an Olympic feel to it. There’s a torch and an athlete too, so you can see how the theme plays out along the way.

What about the design?

Check out the classic one-armed bandit design here, showing the paytable in the upper half of the ‘cabinet’ and the reels in the lower half.

Reels, symbols, and other features in Go for Gold slots

You’ve probably worked out you get three reels in this game. There is no jackpot, but you do get a wild, showing the athlete running through the tape. Find one and it offers a 2x multiplier, while two give you a 4x multiplier. Wilds must appear in a winning combination of symbols to count, obviously.

Guess the line quantity

If you thought there might be only one of these, you got that part right.

Coinage values

This can be played as a penny slot, although those with more sizeable budgets can use other coins, with the largest being $10.

You can’t miss the paytable

It’s above the reels in the upper part of the cabinet, as we mentioned earlier. This gives the feeling that you’re playing a real slot in a casino.

Play three coins to stand a chance of seeing the bonus

A bonus in a three-reel slot game? Sure, you do get one here, and you need the Olympic torch to find it. Just one does the trick, although you do need to play three coins to make sure you have a chance of doing it. Play less than that and you won’t be able to find it.

The bonus game reveals nine gold medals, each showing a sport. Choose one to discover its value. You can take that prize or leave it and choose another medal. You have a maximum of three picks, so if you go through them all, you must take the final prize no matter whether it is larger or smaller than the previous ones.

You cannot scoop any free spins

These don’t form part of the Go for Gold slot game.

Do we know what the return to player percentage could be?

In a word… no.

How do we rate Go for Gold slots?

This is a decent game, rated higher than we would otherwise have done because of the bonus round. That makes it a decent 7/10 slot.

Scoop up to 2,400x your bet

If you played with three coins on the payline, this would be the top prize for finding three wilds on that line.

Demo play is ideal as a starting point

You can see how it all works, thereby learning enough about it to see if you like it.

And if you do, you can play for real

You can find the game at all reliable WGS-powered casinos online today.

Mobile gaming may be tougher

The game has been around for a long while, so we found it tricky to spot it in mobile casinos aimed at Android and iOS users.
