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