Winter Gold Slot Machine Review

Winter Gold is a 5 reel, 15 line video slot from Microgaming. It has a Winter Olympics theme which starts on the reels and goes through to the even theme bonus stages. As well as the event stages the game also has a free spins feature with up to X4 multipliers.

The game has a 300 coin maximum bet or 20 coins per pay line. You can choose to bet less than max coins per line and still have a chance at winning all of the features. Coin sizes start at 0.01 so you can be playing max bet for 3.00. Top coin size at most casinos is 0.20 which makes for a big 60.00 max.

The Winter Gold logo is the wild symbols and substitutes for everything but the scattered gold medal. Lining up five of the wild Winter Gold logos awards the top line win of 5,000 coins or 100,000 coins if you are betting max.

After the top pay for the five wilds the even symbols award the next highest pays with five Bobsleigh symbols paying 1,250 coins, five Speed Skating symbols paying 1,000 coins, five Ski Jump symbols pay 750 coins and five Biathlon symbols pay 500 coins. From here the rest of the line wins are made up with the A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 symbols.

The scattered Gold Medals are the key to winning all of the games features. Get three, four or five anywhere on the reels and you move on to the Bonus Wheel Feature where you can win coins, free spins or one of the four event bonuses. The scatters can pay big with five paying 400 times your bet or 120,000 coins - bigger than the top line win!

Once you trigger the feature you move to the Bonus Wheel. Here you click spin to start the wheel spinning (View Screenshot). The arrow spins around and stops on one of the eight possibilities. On the bonus wheel you can win,

  • Coins
    An instant win prize of up to 18,000 coins
  • Free Spins
    Win up to 20 free spins with up to a X4 win multiplier
  • Biathlon Bonus
    A two round bonus where you shoot targets to win coins and multipliers.
  • Bobsleigh Bonus
    Watch your bobsleigh team race and win based on the final standings
  • Ski Jump
    Select a skier, watch the even and win based on the final medal round
  • Speed Skating
    Select a skater and win based on the final standings in the race.

We really like to see slots with a bonus that is a bit different from the rest. Winter Gold delivers on this with a great range of different bonuses that really add to the theme. The only negative with the bonus is that sometimes you just win coins which is not as exciting as the other types of features on offer.

Overall, Winter Gold is a well designed slot game that really captures the Winter Olympics theme. The top jackpots on the base game are good and the range of bonus features really add to the experience.
