Here we are amongst the golden corn fields in a massive golden bird- a gigantic rooster! What? 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.
Here our pal, that big hunk of dinner, is the main character and he has us in his sights for some dust-scratching fun ahead on the farm. The player is surrounded by a cast of poultry characters (excuse the pun), a girl, and a baby chicken complete the coup.
The game’s theming is an odd combination of chicken farm and trip to the Far East! Here the game’s look is a golden land of plenty with the frame of the reels and the reels themselves are Far Eastern patterns and swirls.
The graphics look the part with picture perfect looks (there’s more gold here than on the Blazing Goddess slot) and a very perky little upbeat soundtrack helps to set a relaxed farmyard jaunt with a gentle whistling and a shaker.
Golden is a 3 rows, 5 reel and 243 ways to win slot game, different to many of the games like Foxin’ Wins Again that we see from the famous slot designer.
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-this is a growing family. The lower value symbols are the Ace through 9 of the card deck.
The game’s Wild is a muscly chicken with his wings on his hips- he’s a rooster with attitude. This dude only lays his chickeny claws on reels 2, 3 and 4, this icon substitutes 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 with chicken feather on a golden cord.
Golden comes with everyone’s favourite- free games and the players in this mode the Wild and Scatter become a whole new double icon, a combined golden rooster of the game’s title because this is one lucky bird who you want to turn pure gold for you!
To get your own share of those free games you just need to call on lady cluck and land 3 of the scatter or wild icons across the reels and then you’re in a world of good times, a whole 10 games of fun to be exact. And what’s more – you can re-trigger these freebies- now 20 is a clucking good plus when it comes to free fun. Just get five of a kind and you can have all the lovely dosh that’s there for the taking because there’s a juicy x5 multiplier to sweeten that particular cherry!
If you’re partial to a bit of fresh air and sunshine then the outdoorsy theme of Golden is pretty relaxing and bears all the hallmarks of a carefully curated adventure, with great graphics and its slightly off kilter styling of the heroic chicken at the game’s heart. Golden should be on your to do list if you like your slot play with a hint of the rural but with the high design flair of the big city!
