Christopher Columbus sets sail to the new world, and you’re invited on an adventure that gives you plenty of simplicity and free spins.
The Sails of Gold mobile slot came out at the same time as the Marco Polo inspired Golden Caravan slot, and at first glance, you’d think they were almost identical machines, short of the theme.
In fact, once you look a little closer, you’ll find that despite the similarities, there’s some very obvious differences that makes each game for two very different types of slots players.
Sure, they both have 10 paylines, 5 reels, wilds and 10 free spins on 3 scatters. But only one gives you frequent free spins.
If Golden Caravan is like travelling a desert of free spins, with few drops of water for respite, the Sails of Gold slot game is abundant in water, with free spins showing up every 50 to 100 spins at most.
But unlike it’s sibling, Sails of Gold free spins come with no multipliers. But, you can re-trigger a further 10 free spins every time you get 3 ship symbols on show, which is often.
The most we’ve triggered is 40 free spins, though they come round so often, mostly you settle for 10 or 20.
As much as Golden Caravan in fact – 5,000 times your bet in fact. So why would you ever play anything but this Sails of Gold video slot?
Because getting to that top amount is a lot more difficult. You’ll have to catch an almost infinite amount of free spins to get close to that number, whilst Golden Caravan has those multipliers to help.
Still, it has to be said, we enjoyed this sail across the ocean a smidge more than the desert, as this Play’n GO slot game is just a little friendlier on the budget.
Either way, you’ll have a chance at riches. But with Columbus, you know you get a happy ending.

Wild: Christopher Columbus himself is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols except scatter.
Scatter and Free Spins: Get the sail ship symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5, and you'll trigger 10 free spins. The good news is that this symbol now acts like an extra wild, giving you more chances at bigger wins.
Especially as it shows up more often than the wild symbol itself.
Get 3 more, and you get a further 10 free spins. Play'n GO don't say how many you can trigger, but with that top prize, you can take a guess that it can go on for a while.
Gamble Your Winnings: A nice little extra that you can use after any win. You can gamble your winnings by either guessing the colour of the card, and get twice your winning, or guessing the suit, and get quadruple your wins.
If you guess wrong, you lose your winnings.
The Sails of Gold mobile slot is Play'n GO going back to basics - small amount of paylines, one big feature, a pretty theme.
Everyone knows how the story ends with Christopher Columbus finding America, and this little gem is just as predictable, with lots of free spins to break up the scenery.
Granted, you won't come back with riches untold, but if that's what you want, you should probably try living the high live with the Pimped slot rather than the life of an adventurer.
Or you can play Sails of Gold at one of these mobile casinos:
