We are in the thick of some golden corn fields with a big farm bird- a gigantic rooster! Yep, a huge, oversized, barrel-chested chicken!
This is the most fun we’ve had on a NextGen game since we took the Shangri-La slot for a spin.
This 5 reel, 3 row and 243 Ways to Win game from NextGen Gaming, different to many of the games like Foxin’ Wins Again that we see from this slot designer. The main draw is the Golden Free Games feature which kicks off 10 free spins. You can re-trigger 10 more free spins. Winning combos with 5 symbols are boosted by 5x multiplier.
Five rooster silhouettes pay 400x your stake in the feature.
The main star of the game is that big hunk of chicken, and he has us in his sights for some dust-scratching fun ahead on the farm. The game is filled with a cast of farm-yard poultry characters: a girl, and a baby chicken complete the coup.
Golden is a simple, down to earth kind of a game that is medium to high variance – that’s all down to that Golden Free Games bonus where you need to aim to land 5 of a kind wins.
The graphics look the part with picture perfect looks (there’s more gold here than on the Blazing Goddess slot) and a perky soundtrack that sets a relaxed farmyard atmosphere with a gentle whistle and a shake.
Pros and Cons
Wins are boosted by 5x in the Bonus
Re-trigger the 10 free spins (once) in the bonus
In the bonus, the wild merges with the scatter, so you’ll potentially have twice as many wilds on screen, plus it’s easier to re-trigger the feature.
The wild Rooster only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. BUT, he substitutes for all symbols, including scatter. 3 Roosters will also trigger the free spins.
The high value icons are a silhouetted rooster on a fence against a golden sunrise, a very smart eastern style rooster house, and white chicken with a wing behind its head, a cute chick and some eggs with their legs prematurely popping out of their shells-a growing family, in other words.
The lower value symbols are the Ace through 9 of the card deck.
The game’s Wild is the muscly chicken with his wings on his hips- a rooster with attitude. This symbol lands on reels 2, 3 and 4, and will substitute for all symbols except the Scatter.
The Scatter lands on the same reels as the Wild but is a target board with Far Eastern styling and chicken feather on a golden cord.
Golden Free Spins
Golden comes with everyone’s favourite- free games! The main players in the feature are the Wild and the Scatter: they become a new double icon, the golden rooster of the game’s title – a lucky bird who you want to turn pure gold for you!
To trigger the free games you need 3 of the scatter or wild icons across the reels and then you’ll trigger ten free spins. And you can re-trigger the bonus and land another ten spins, making twenty in total if your luck is in. Five of a kind wins are booster with a juicy x5 multiplier.
If you like fresh air and sunshine, then the outdoor theme of Golden will suit you: good cartoon graphics with a whacky theme with the heroic chicken at the game’s heart.
Golden should be on your play list if you like your slots simple but rewarding.
