Where's the Gold Pokies

Aristocrat Gaming brings us the hugely successful pokie game, Where’s the Gold. First developed in 2003, Where’s the Gold is arguably the most popular Aristocrat game on the market. We’re given a Gold Rush theme to work with here, featuring a miner, wagons, pickaxes and more. Using 5 reels and spreading the chances to win across 25 paylines, this game has some really cool features to help players strike it rich and dig up the winnings. A staple of land-based casinos for years, we’re glad to see Where’s the Gold making its way online thanks to the team at Aristocrat Gaming.

How to Play Where’s the Gold Pokies

You can choose between 1 and 25 paylines, so there is no shortage of opportunity to unearth that elusive gold. As with many of the older pokies, you can only choose to play one coin per-line, however the coin amount ranges anywhere from 0.01 through to 2. So don’t fear – if you like to bet big, you’ve absolutely got the chance to do so. There’s a Max Bet function which makes it easy to but as much as possible, and the AutoPlay button lets you keep that bet type rolling.

Features and Bonuses

Where’s the Gold offers some great ways to win. We’ve got the lower ranked cards as the usual J, Q. K and A, but at the higher end we’ve got the Wagon and Pickaxe which will pay out 300 coins for matching 5, the Mine will pay 500 and the Miner himself will pay 1000. There’s no wild in this game, but the scatter is the Dynamite. We do see some wild activity during the Free Spins round – read on for more details.

Explosive Free Spins

If you can match 3 or more Dynamite symbols (scatters) on any given line, you can trigger the Free Spins bonus. The screen will start to shake, the dynamite explodes and you’ll be taken to a feature screen where you can meet some of the miner’s friends – Mary Money, Happy Lucky, Nugget Ned, Professor Gold and Finda the Dog. Select from any of these characters and you’ll be awarded anywhere up to 10 free spins. During this bonus round, you can uncover some wilds – symbols will turn into golden ones and you can reap the rewards, while spins can also be re-triggered.

Double or Nothing

If you’re feeling lucky, any time you win you can activate the Gamble feature to try your luck at doubling or quadrupling your winnings. Choose the correct colour out of red and black for a chance to double up, or if you can correctly pick the suit as well, you’re a chance to quadruple what you’ve won!

Winning Options and Tricks

Because there is only the one feature in Where’s the Gold, obviously that is the one you’re chasing. As such, we recommend using all 25 lines here to give you the best chance of scoring a win. Having only one feature in the game isn’t a bad thing, because it means you are more likely to pick up smaller wins along the way during the base game. Again, taking advantage of this by using 25 paylines and betting as high as you’re comfortable with is the best way to maximise your chances here. Where’s the Gold is known as a medium variance game, meaning the ratio between frequency of payouts and the size of payouts sits somewhere in the middle. This makes it a great game which gives you even chances of scoring a win, whether you enjoy playing for hours on end or whether you’ve only got time for a few spins at a time.

Where’s the Gold Mobile

Wherever you are, you can now enjoy this game which has so popular in both land-based and online casinos for a number of years. Aristocrat Gaming have made Where’s The Gold available on mobile through their mobile developer NYX, and fortunately, there are no restrictions on gameplay. You can still access all of the full features of the online version, with the only variance being some of the buttons have been shifted around to make it more suitable for a smaller screen.
