Just because you like your slots to be clean and simple doesn’t mean you should sacrifice the chance to win huge progressive jackpot payouts – and Playtech have certainly proven this fact courtesy of their three-reel classic, Gold Rally. Essentially a retro slot machine, Gold Rally features eight paylines on a 3x3 grid, but still manages to pack a bonus feature and a progressive jackpot award onto its reels. As such, the slot should appeal to fans of classic gaming and bonus hunters alike, with a simple user interface making it a title that can be mastered in a matter of moments.
Gold Rally features a prospecting theme that sees a trio of cartoon miners head deep underground to dig their way to hidden treasure. The symbols featured on the reels include the game’s logo and a selection mining gear that ranges from pickaxes to sticks of dynamite, with the latter triggering the bonus round when it appears in all four corners of the gameboard. Backed up by a range of cartoon sound effects, Gold Rally is a fun and frivolous slot machine that will soon have players eagerly reaching for their hard hats and joining the underground adventure.
Despite being an incredibly simple game to play, Gold Rally does include two features in the form of its bonus round and the progressive jackpot fund. The first is triggered whenever dynamite symbols appear in each corner of the 3x3 grid, with this taking players to a new screen where they’ll have to select items to detonate in order to reveal cash prizes. The second is activated whenever scales icons feature in all nine spaces on the gameboard, with this awarding players a share of the progressive jackpot fund displayed below the reels.
Given the game’s simple retro design, it should come as no big surprise that the game mechanics used in Gold Rally are similarly basic, with players merely needing to choose their bet amount, which is then put through the game’s eight fixed paylines to give them their total wager. This makes the game playable from £2.00-£16.00 per spin, with the more players bet, the greater the share of the progressive jackpot prize fund they’ll be entitled to.
If you’re a fan of classic slot machines but don’t want to miss out on the bonus features and huge prize funds found in more modern titles, Gold Rally is an excellent compromise between functionality and playability. The game is simple enough to be mastered in a matter of seconds, but the presence of a huge progressive jackpot fund means there’s plenty to aim for as players dig their way to a seven-figure top award.
