About the Game
Welcome back to the Wild, Wild West. A popular theme used like you have never seen it before. Join in on the fun and begin prospecting for gold in the California hills. Available on desktop, mobile and tablet California Gold can take the adventure anywhere.

The symbols within the game are all strongly linked to the hard-working gold miners. Watch out for Pick Axes, Lanterns, Maps, Gold Pans, Dynamite, Rail Cars as well as the Mines and Prospectors themselves. Each aiming to add to your ever-growing gold pile.

The lowest paying symbol is the humble Pick Axe, matching 5 on a single payline will award the player 100x their initial stake, and this is then followed by the Maps to the gold mines as well as the Lanterns each worth 150 x the amount staked. The same amount can also be earned by collecting 5 Gold Pans or 5 Dynamite. For 200x the original wager players should aim to match either 5 Donkeys or 5 Rail Cars to help carry the gold out of the mines.

The higher paying symbols come after the tools have been collected, 5 actual Mines can bring as much as 500x the players stake – but the largest amount comes when finding rival Prospectors. Steal their gold before they can steal yours and walk away with an enormous 5,000x the initial stake.

Players aren’t expected to find all the gold themselves, with an abundance of bonus rounds to be played the gold will find itself. When a Miner appears on any of the reels 2, 3 and 4 he will act as a Wild to help the player find some gold, his symbol can take the place of any other none-bonus symbol to complete a winning payline. If the Miner is on all 3 reels at one time the Mad Miner Bonus will activate. Players will be asked to select a mine in which to pick up nuggets. Each mine will contain a different amount, the amount of Gold Nuggets collected will be added together and then multiplied by the initial stake to supply the player with an easy win.

The most sought after symbol in California Gold is the Gold Nugget itself. Not only will matching these symbols cause a large pay out but collecting 3 on the reel at one time will also trigger 10 Free Spins – with each prize having an x3 multiplier attached.

Don’t be a fool, come play California Gold for the potential to walk away with those little nuggets of luxury.

The Verdict
As one of NextGen Gamins more simple games, California Gold is a straight forward video slot. With no gimmicks the aim is to win money through the active paylines and try to activate the bonus rounds. The bonuses themselves are stripped back but dependent on the player’s initial stake, there is a huge potential within each one. Allowing for automatic multipliers in Free Spin rounds, players can see their final payout increase dramatically in a short time. In this case simple is better, stripping the game back to what players came to play.
