Black Gold Rush is a five reel video slot produced by SkillOnNet. The aptly named slots theme becomes ever more apparent once you see the various cogs turning in the background with pipes pumping in and around an oil rig. The industrial theme continues throughout gameplay which includes wild symbols, free spins and an oil rig themed bonus round.
Using the Black Gold Rush Slot Machine
The marvelous thing about SkillOnNet slots is their control panel is very easy to use. The various options for sound and access to the cashier are located on the lefthand side whilst betting options are place in the middle.
Bets are placed using the denomination and lines options, by default the lines are set to 50 which can be decreased to as little as 1 line should the need arise. The number of lines is multiplied by the coin denomination to provide the total bet, therefor we’d recommend choosing the denomination first.
Denominations include 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.25, 0.50, 1, 2 or 5 which creates a 1penny to £/$/€250 betting range. The total bet is displayed directly below the reels along with the number of lines, coin value and any wins which have been paid.
The auto roll button allows you to play automatically, ‘Spin’ is for manual play and ‘Bet Max’ plays all 50 lines using your chosen coin value.
