Join the forest nymphs as they cover all 5 reels and 20 paylines of this Goldaur Guardians mobile slot, but is it fools gold or real gold that you’ll find within?
Opening up this Goldaur Guardians slot online is a real visual treat. You’ve got Oberon, Diana, Lila and Alaneo as the high paying Fairy heroes giving you up to 15x your bet on 5 symbols win.
Wait, what? That doesn’t sound like a lot? It doesn’t because it isn’t. Even most 4 of a kind wins won’t cover your bet, automatically making you doubt why you should even give this Microgaming slot a spin.
Well, if the pretty forest in the background and the low paying bubble fairies aren’t enough of a distraction, how about the fact that this 20 payline game wants to give you multiple wins on all paylines?
To get that amount you need to get wilds covering all 5 reels. And you won’t do that in a normal spin.
What you might do is trigger a Hero spin where one of the high paying symbols is chosen to cover reel 1 and 2. So that’s a start towards that top win, but what about the other three reels?
Well, reels 3, 4, and 5 and now one big mega reel where 3×3 symbols spin and land to cover the area, giving you the chance to actually catch a whole screen full of symbols.
The Wild Symbol might even land in the last 3 reels, giving you as much as 300x your bet with this Goldaur Guardians slot.
The Hero spin may randomly occur in the base game, but you can never trigger it with a wild on reel 1, and 2, making that 1,000x your bet top win impossible.
Not in the free spins. You start with 5 to 10 free spins, and reel 1 and 2 is always covered with the lowest paying of the high paying symbol – the blue Centaur.
If you re-trigger the free spins, you’ll move up to the next symbol up. You’ll need 4 re-triggers to get the wild symbol on reels 1 and 2, and that’s when the big wins in this Goldaur Guardians video slot are found.
But the problem is that mostly you won’t get anywhere near that many re-triggers. You’ll be lucky to walk away with 100x your bet. You’ll be lucky to walk away with 40x your bet.
We get the idea, but considering there are so many more interesting high volatility slots that have more action on the reels available, we doubt we will come back to this forest any time soon. Instead, you’ll find us playing on the Fairy Queen slot.

Wild: The 'W' is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols to create a win. It cannot be used to replace a scatter symbol.
Hero Spins: Randomly awarded during the base game spin, one of the Fairy symbols is chosen to appear stacked on reels 1 and 2. Reel 3, 4 and 5 will now hold mega symbols that fill all three reels, and that includes wild symbols.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3, 4 or 5 scatters trigger 5, 7 or 10 free spins respectively. You Start with the lowest-paid hero on reels 1, and 2 fully stacked, with reels 3, 4 and 5 now holding mega symbols.
If you retrigger the free spins, the next hero on the list is now stacked on reel 1 and 2. This goes up, with the symbols getting progressively bigger in value. You can re-trigger the free spins indefinitely.
This Goldaur Guardians mobile slot certainly looks pretty enough, but the fairly slim wins don't quite make up for some very frustrating slot mechanics as the symbols rarely line up for more than maybe 30x or 40x your bet max win.
That said, there is some excitement to be found as you watch mega symbols spin around and get to re-trigger the free spins indefinitely. Which really means once or twice.
It's not that this Fairy Gold will go away in the morning, it's just that after a few spin it looks more like coppers and brass. But it's prettier than the Pixies of the Forest 2 slot by IGT, so there's always that.
