There’s gold in them thar hills! Like Will Smith before them, Inspired Gaming invites us to take a stroll into the (Wild) Wild West with their latest online slots game: Gimme Gold! Megaways. The game places you in the well-worn boots of a prospector seeking a glittering fortune beneath the hills of the Old West. Gimme Gold! Megaways features six reels packed with pickaxes, shovels, and, of course, minecarts overflowing with precious gold. Since this is a Megaways slot, there are up to 117,649 paylines for you to match symbols across and have yourself a rootin’-tootin’ good time.
How to Play
Gimme Gold! Megaways is played across six standard reels with an additional reel along the top, which provides an extra symbol to the second, third and fourth rows. This is a Megaways slot, so the symbols can vary in size, with smaller symbols translating into more paylines and more ways to win. The controls are mostly standard for online slots – just set your bet value by clicking the stacked coins icon on the left and then spin with the button on the right. A nice extra feature is the ability to activate Fortune Bet mode, which increases your stake by 50% but triples your bonus chance. There’s also an autospin feature, which can be accessed by clicking the icon beneath the standard spin button. You can choose up to 100 autospins and set the game up to stop if you win or lose over a certain amount.
It’s all about the Wild West in Gimme Gold! Megaways’ selection of symbols. The ubiquitous playing card symbols make an appearance, of course, but here they don’t feel out of place, bringing to mind scenes of cowboys playing rounds of no-limit Texas hold ‘em for the nuggets of gold they’ve collected. The game’s higher paying symbols are the tools of the prospector’s trade, the Shovel and the Pick, and every prospector’s ultimate goal – a cart full of shimmering gold! Slots aficionados may have noticed that Gimme Gold! Megaways bears more than a passing resemblance to Blueprint’s popular Diamond Mine, but while that game’s highest paying symbol is the eponymous Diamond, Inspired Gaming’s offering gives the honour to the prospector himself, who steps jauntily across the reels to release the game’s biggest payouts
Gimme Gold! Megaways features Dynamite Mystery symbols. When the fuse runs out on these, they’ll explode with a bang and be replaced by any of the game’s standard symbols. There are also shining Wild symbols, which substitute for any other symbols, and Barrel symbols, which trigger the bonus game when you land four or more, scattered anywhere across the reels.
Gimme Gold! Megaways features one bonus game where you can win additional free spins and unlimited multipliers.
