Golden 8 Review

The first game released by Slotland back in 1998, Golden 8 was at the time a game that really stood out from the crowd. With virtually all of the online slots of the day having three reels and one line, Golden 8 brought a new level of excitement with three reels and eight lines.

The pay lines are arranged in the following format. There are three horizontal lines, three vertical lines and two diagonal lines. While this can seem a little strange at first it works out quite nicely. The vertical lines are especially interesting as you can see whole sections of the reel have the same symbol on them - hit one of these sections and you have an instant three of a kind.

Golden 8 has a total of 10 winning combinations It has no wild symbol but does have a bonus spin feature. The symbols are all classic slot images such as bars, bells, diamonds and a range of fruit symbols such as cherries, grapes and lemons. Interestingly the bar symbols are the most important.

Three bar symbols on any active line with max bet wins the progressive jackpot. If you play less than max bet then the three bars pay 1,000 times your bet. Quite small pays considering the base jackpot starts at $25,000.

Golden 8 has a free spin bonus game. Every time you hit three diamond symbols anywhere on the screen you light up one of eight diamonds below the reels. Light up all eight and you get one free spin at the bet level that triggered the bonus. There is no multiplier on the free game.

It is a progressive game so you need to bet accordingly. There are three coins sizes you can choose from (50ยข, $1 and $1.50). To be eligible for the progressive you need to have net the highest of the three ($1.50) on the winning line. While you do not have to bet on all lines we recommend that you do in order to not miss out an any big wins.

The only problem with playing max bet at the highest coin size on Golden 8 is the $12 cost per spin. This is quite high in terms of max bets so you really need to have a nice bankroll if you are going for the jackpot.
