Gold Strike Casino Slot
Gold Strike is an online slot from IGT and Games Warehouse and has 5 reels and 20 paylines. Gold Strike takes place against the background of a desert and a western tune plays in the background as the reels spin and the symbols will animate when there is a win on the paylines.
The symbols include the playing card symbols Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace as well as a pair of pistols and the gold strike logo. The wild symbol is the sheriff’s badge and the bonus symbol is the dynamite.
Lock ‘n Load Bonus Round
Gold Strike has a lock ‘n load bonus feature which is activated during the base game when there is a winning combination on active paylines. The winning symbols will remain in position and players will receive a respin. If any matching symbols appear during the respin they will also remain in position and another respin is given. This bonus feature will continue until there are no more matching symbols on the reels.
Dynamite Bonus Round
The dynamite bonus round is the main bonus feature of Gold Strike and players will need to have 6 sticks of dynamite on the reels to activate this round. These dynamite symbols will appear stacked.
Tin Can Shootout
The tin can alley bonus game is where players get to select a tin can that they must shoot to reveal a prize. If players are able to find the lucky strike nugget they will play another 2 rounds.
The lucky strike bonus is one of these rounds and here players are shown a map with 25 squares and they must try to locate the lucky strike symbol in order to receive a cash prize. The gold mine round is the 2nd round and here players must choose 1 of 3 detonators and blow up the board at the entrance of the mine. Players will receive a cash prize depending on their win.
In order to activate the gamble feature players must set it up and they will then be entered into this feature when reaching a certain level of the game. Players can choose their own bet amount depending on how much they are willing to risk. For example if a player chooses the 2-9 bet for a 1.5 win or they can attempt to get an Ace for a win of 12 times. The Gold Strike gamble feature is different to the usual gamble option and is a wheel of fortune where players must click the green gamble button to spin the wheel.
