Golden Legend mobile slot is what we like an ‘all or nothing’ 50 payline game. But with high risk, comes high rewards.
Or, what some gamblers call a “What the… where did my money go???” game. Which, given that we’ve given Golden Legend slot 4 stars, might have you wondering if we’ve lost all our senses.
However, you missed the point of our first sentence. This is an ALL or nothing slot machine. And whilst yes, it’s not very friendly to your budget, if you know how to bet low and stick to it, this is one of the Play’n GO slots that can richly reward.
That said, Play’n GO have been messing around with the style of slot machines long before Golden Legend. Before there’s been Gemix, which is half social game, half slot, and then more recently the beautiful Tower Quest Slot game, with bonus features you trigger.
So it’s not surprising that Play’n GO have done something different, so much so that it would fit nicely within another slots software portfolio, namely the excellent Asian slots from Aristocrat.
And we are not just talking because this Golden Legend slot has 50 pay lines and sits on a 5×4 reel. But the design, and in many ways the game play, is straight out the fantastic 50 Dragons slot, with glistening golden statues sitting in a rich coloured background.
Which is just a nice way of saying that it’s basically a copy – but with the Play’n GO style.
For example, some of the higher paying symbols come stacked. And more telling, during the free spins bonus games, you get 2 additional wild symbols added to the reels, leading to huge stacked wilds by the end of the round.
50 Dragons is one of those games that you’ll either love to hate or hate to love. And much can be said of the Golden Legend video slot.
That said, the free spins do come more often than in the original, giving these five reels a little more action. But within 500 spins, our budget had disappeared, leading us to having to test the game on a lower bet.
That little gamble paid off, because we got a doozy of a win that gave us enough of our money to forgive the harshness. And you can see that, by the fact that the free spins has a 4,000 times your bet win, when you do win big it’s almost always worthwhile.
It all depends what kind of player you are. Do you need constant wins to keep you interested? In which case we recommend the similar themed, but friendlier Chinese New Year slot.
But if only ‘huge super mega wins’ will do, then tempt your fate with this Golden Legend slot machine.
Just don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Wilds: The golden Sycee (we are going to call it little gold hat, so you know what we mean) is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols except scatter. It only shows up on reels 2 to 5.
Scatter: The red dragon is scatter and only shows up on reels 1 to 3. That said, we've hit it often enough to know it's not as hard as some. Then again, we've gone 300 spins without seeing it once as well, so bet wisely.
Get 33 and you'll trigger 10 free spins. These can be re-triggered, but once only, to a maximum of 20 free spins.
The reason for this is that on each free spin you get two additional wild symbols on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. So by spin 10 you've got wild symbol stacked 9 high. By spin 20... you get the idea.
We wish we could say these come with guaranteed good wins, but we've walked away with only 4 to 7 times our bet too many times to need to lie to you.
Still, line up several of those stacked wilds just right... and you've got yourself a small fortune.
Gamble: At any point in the game you can gamble your winnings by playing a simple card game. Guess the colour of the card correctly and you win twice your bet, guess the suit and you quadruple your bet.
Guess incorrectly and you forfeit your win.
You can gamble up to 5 times in a row, to a maximum of 2,500 coins win.
Golden Legend mobile slot is not for everyone.
However, it is one of the prettier harder hitting video slots available to play on Android, iOS and Windows, making this a must try for lovers of big wins.
Just budget wisely, and only increase your bet if you're starting to win.
