We’re all for one word online slot titles. But what, do you think, is the gold described by this five reel, 243 ways to win release from NYX developer, Nextgen Gaming? That’s right. Eggs. But hold your righteous indignation, vegans! The Golden slot is a celebration of eggs, not of eating them. Nextgen is celebrating the life cycle of the egg, and by the look of the tough Wild Rooster these are some eggs that we don’t want to pinch unless we want to get seriously pecked.

Gameplay

It’s always up to you whether you play your online slots with sound on or off. Some iGamers like to listen to their own tunes when they spin their favourite reels. The choice is still yours, but at the very least give Golden soundtrack a listen. A more upbeat whistling ditty you will not find, and it neatly romanticizes life on a farm without mentioning all the feces shovelling that would surely be an inevitable part of it.

Our symbols on our reels are emblematic of farm life in general and chicken life in particular. A Crowing Cock is our top-paying symbol, and he is joined by the Hen House, Hen, Chicks and Eggs – all stages of the egg production line. Our low-paying symbols are made up of standard 9s through Aces, and the Rooster rules the roost as our Wild symbol, appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4 and substituting for all symbols, including Scatters. Like a Hollandaise sauce, this is a rare and tasty treat, bolstering our chances of landing the bonus feature with just two Scatters plus a Wild.

Bonuses

With Scatters appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4 – same as Golden’s Wilds – our chances of triggering the bonus feature are boosted thanks to the possible substitution of Wilds for Scatters. Three Wild/Scatter combos will trigger 10 free spins, during which all five-of-a-kind wins are multiplied x5. With the possibility of retriggering the free spins feature we are on tenterhooks throughout. Or tenterclucks. Aha. One high-paying five-of-a-kind – made all the more possible by the stacked Scatter/Wild Golden Rooster that appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 and again substitutes for all symbols – could be the difference between a gourmet slots experience and egg on our faces. Though, of course, every win on a farm is a fortune; every meal a banquet.

Summary

As sure as eggs is eggs, Golden Slot is a fun, playable online game with a soundtrack that we dare you not to record and use as your ringtone. As playable, likeable and bountiful as this title is, whatever you do don’t take Golden in the shower with you. For obvious reasons.
