Golden cars, surrounded by golden rings, gold bars in gold suitcases and gold credit cards, you could be as rich as Spandeau Ballet in their haydays in this Gold mobile slot.
You have to give it to Microgaming. When they get a theme in hand, they go all in, or not at all.
This is all the more clear when you have a look at this Gold slot game. Someone in the Microgaming office, whilst listening to cheesy 80’s music, went “You know what would make a really cool slot game? One based on that song from Spandeau Ballet“.
And all they got was a name, and they created a new gold slot machine which has everything to do with the precious metal and absolutely nothing to do with the song – other than the tune playing in the background, like a last minute attempt at trying to bring it back to the original idea.
Gold slot game is all bling. Too much bling for us. We don’t mind theme where you are living the high life, such as in the Mega Fortune Dreams slot for example, but when it goes ‘gangsta’ rather than ‘high class’, like in the High Society slot, we lose interest.
But if you don’t mind that kind of brashness, then add a star to this review. And even if you do mind, read on, because what this mobile video slot lacks in class, it makes up in giving you actual slot gold in your pocket.
During the game itself, the wilds will be your best friend as they come with a 2x multiplier that can help keep your balance steady. It can also help create some great five of a kind wins, but mostly, you need to be careful with this casino game, budget carefully, and watch for the slots free spins.
Which, in themselves, are very temperamental. But isn’t that the whole thrill of higher variance slot machines? Knowing that all it takes is one spin to change your life?
Because the free spins amount are given to you randomly, and easily retriggered. When Microgaming says you can win up to 180 free spins… well, chances are you’ll walk away with about 20, maybe 30 if you are very lucky. But with a 3x multiplier during the free spins, these can easily give you wins of 100x and more. It can also just about give you 20x however, so don’t go in thinking you’ll get a big pay off, but the potential is there. We’ve seen it happen.
Gold video slot isn’t particularly unique. We’ve probably still prefer to play on the original Thunderstruck game which work on similar mechanics. But it’s always nice to have an alternative to a favourite game. Especially as with this one, you get to shout ‘GOLD! Always believe in your soul…‘ every time you win the free spins.
And you should always believe. Because this game has the potential to give you plenty of gold.

Wild: The golden suitcase is the wild symbol, and replaces all other symbols except scatters. It also holds the highest paying symbols of the lot, with up to x10,000 your line bet as the top jackpot amount.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get three gold records scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and you'll win 15 free spins. However, these are fairly easily to re-trigger, with the most to be won at a healthy 180 free spins total.
Of course, that's unlikely, and you are usually happy with about 20 free spins. We've hit 30 and 40 free spins before to know it's possible, and when you do, the wins here are significant.
Especially as all wins during the free spins are tripled.
We were not fan of the themes. The song, maybe, but even then our love usually comes at about 11pm after a few too many Martinis.
Gold mobile slot does, however, have some good qualities, mostly in it's game play. You have to watch your budget, but if you can catch the right free spin bonus, and get yourself anything from 30 spins upwards, you'll be laughing all the way to the bank in your gold car, with your gold rolex, stroking your gold filled suitcase.
