Pros & Cons

  • Features all fall under the Bonus Symbol.

How to Play

Voodoo Gold opens up with a brief cinematic intro, introducing you to the title character, Kane, as he traverses the mangrove swamps of Louisiana. On either side of the reels you’ll see large trees with skulls embedded in them. Spooky! All the buttons you need to play are easily found, and like on most ELK slots the game info, betting options and autospin buttons fade from the corners of the screen to make the gameplay more immersive. The big spin icon sits on the right, the betting options on the left. It’s clear, it’s subtle and it doesn’t get in the way of your spinning. You begin playing on four rows with 4,096 Ways to Win but with the Avalanche feature in play, you can add new rows with the chance for eight rows and 262,144 Ways to Win. Voodoo has never looked so appealing.

Symbols

As you’re entering the shaman hideout, you can expect Voodoo related symbols as well. And obviously that’s what you get. Hearts, Deer Heads, Crosses, Stars, Dice, Hats, Potions Bottles and Chicken Feet make up the bulk of the colourful symbols. Then there are the higher paying Shaman, Native Indian, Mortar and Pestle and Kane symbols. The hero is one to watch out for as when he appears three, four, five or six on a payline you snag 1, 1.5, 2 or 2.5 times your stake. The Wild symbol is the Voodoo Doll and it can replace all symbols, except the bonus symbol, to help you create more wins.

Bonuses

Just like there are lots of facets to the magic of voodoo, there are loads of bonuses on this slot.

Bonus Name Bonus Explanation
Avalanche Feature

When you land a winning combination, the symbols explode and new symbols fall from above to fill in the gap. So, a little like Gonzo’s Quest but without the advancing multiplier feature. However, with each Avalanche an extra row appears on the top, expanding the reelcase and with each row, more Ways to Win.

Big Symbols

All symbols can appear in 1×2, 2×2, 3×3 or 4,4 size, filling up more spaces across the reels and helping you land bigger wins.

Bomb Feature

When a Bonus Symbol appears, it will trigger the Bomb Feature at the end of an Avalanche spin. All the symbols within a diamond-shaped area explode, with new symbols landing from above. You also get an extra row of symbols along the top to give you more ways to win. This feature can be repeated again and again.

Dual Bonus

When two Bonus Symbols appear at the same time, all the symbols that touch the line between the Bonus Symbols will explode, allowing for huge wins.

Free Drops

When you get three, four, five or six Bonus Symbols, you’ll receive 6, 9, 12 or 15 Free Spins. If you land a Wild that doesn’t serve up a win then it becomes Sticky for the Free Spins. You can retrigger the spins, increase the paylines and really rake up the wins.
