Black Gold Rush is a 5 reel (non-progressive), 50-payline, Skill-on-net Video Slot. It comes with a wildSymbol, scatter symbol, free spin and has a maximum jackpot win of $25,000.
Black Gold Rush is a video slot which uses the modern day need for oil as a theme. As the saying goes ‘where there’s muck, there’s gold’ and in this case they were right as the slot produces wins using wild symbols, free spins and a bonus round. The jackpot may not make you ‘oil baron rich’ but at $25,000 would make you a fair bit better off!
The slots case is geared for the job, literally! Gears rotate in the background in a bid to pipe boiling hot oil away from the rigs beyond. Each of the five reels are backed with checker plated steel, the kind used on industrial and oil rig floors.
As you play the background changes between night, day and even location which breaks up the usual monotony of staring at the same setting whilst playing.
The reel icons are set on colorful circular backgrounds, also reflecting the slots theme. They include power stations, oil symbols, light bulbs, oil derricks, rigs, sunshine, power outlet, atom and bonus symbols. Each flashes and becomes surrounded by a rotating cog when a winning combination is formed, this is celebratory but also ensures players can quickly see what they have won.
The entire top half of the slot is bespoke whilst the control panel is the usual SkillOnNet offering. This is actually a good thing because it’s one of the easiest to use without limiting player options.
The 1 penny to £/$/€250 betting range proves just how versatile Black Gold Rush is as a slot. The best aspect is the total bet is setup using just two options - simplicity is beautiful!
Another simple, but effective, feature is the auto roll button which simply spins the reels until you ask it to stop or you are running low on funds.
The Atom icon is a wild feature which means it can be used to complete winning combinations in place of other symbols. It can show up in any position and provides the most frequent wins of all three features.
Free spins also occur frequently because they are awarded from just two scatter icons. You receive 2, 5, 10 or 20 free spins for two, three, four or five scatter symbols respectively.
The bonus oil counter on the right not only looks cool but also keeps track of your bonus points. When full (1000 points) the bonus round is unlocked, you receive 100 points per bonus icon which means ten are needed to start the round.
You are asked to select an oil derrick which you think will reach the well. If it does you’ll win a prize and be given the opportunity to continue to the next round. If the drill falls short you simply return to the reels with your winnings in tact.
