Gold Rush Review

Gold Rush has a mining theme going back to the old days of the Gold Rush in Americas Wild West. Gold-seeking prospectors mined for gold with their pickaxes and dynamite sticks deep into craggy mountains. Legendary stories came out of the mouths of those who went to great lengths to earn their fortune in tricky conditions!

The backdrop displays a miners’ hut with a section of mountain peaks where mining takes place. Graphics are bright and crisp with birds chirping and flying across the screen at times.

Be prepared to dig deep for that shiny piece of gold!

Wild Symbol – Gold Nugget

The Wild Gold Nugget is the wild symbol, and it substitutes for other symbols except for the Scatter symbol. Land 5 Wilds on an enabled payline to receive an instant payout of 1 000 coins.

Scatter Symbol – Dynamite

The Dynamite is the Scatter symbol, and it can form scatter wins which are multiplied by the total bet. Land 3 or more Scatters anywhere on the reels to activate the Free Spins.

Coin Size

The coin sizes range from 0.01 to 20, and the betting range from 0.25 up to 5 000.

Gold Rush Jackpots

The Gold Rush Random Progressive Jackpot is up for grabs and can trigger at any time during any spin. The value of the jackpot displays above the reels.

Free Spins Feature

The Free Spins bonus gets activated by getting three or more Dynamite scatters on the reels. The number of Free Spins awarded depends on how many Scatter symbols appeared. Receive 10, 12, or 15 Free Spins. Getting Free Spins can also cause the gold mine to collapse.  After the mine collapses, 3-15 random symbols will fall onto the reels. When this happens, the Dynamite explodes with a random symbol that can award big wins! This feature cannot retrigger during the free spins feature.

Auto-Play Feature & Free Play

The AutoPlay feature allows the player to have the slot machine spin automatically without interruption. One can also determine how many automatic spins are required. We would suggest that you learn to play the game in the free demo mode before using real money. There is also a ‘Gamble’ feature which can retrigger after each win. Select a card that has a higher value than the dealer’s card. Guess correct to double winnings or guess wrong and lose all winnings.


The cartoon style and design make this an entertaining game with the friendly miners, frequent Wilds and the excellent round of free spins.
