Today we review Golden Mane the new online slot machine from NextGen Gaming. The provider brings us yet another beautiful looking slot game, after giving us the Theatre of Night, slot machine, last month. Golden Mane is a pretty straightforward online slot, both in name, design and features. Even though the slot game was released on 02.04.2017, at the moment, it is available only in selective casinos. If you want to play the Golden Mane online slot you can find it on WilliamHill casino.
Golden Mane is a 5 reels and 10 paylines slot machine available on desktop, tablet, as well as most other mobile devices. The min and max bets players can lay – range from 0.15 to 150, depending on the currency played. Also, the coin size ranges from 0.01 to 1. As the name suggests, the slot game’s theme is about horses. Beautiful stallions fill the reels, while the whole slot game has a golden shiny look. An open grass field under a bright rising son, shows in the background.
The high value symbols on the reels all relate to the slot’s theme. There are 4 high value symbols in total. These symbols feature a black stallion, a white stallion, a mountain and an autumnal tree. 10, J, Q, K and A make up the low value symbols. The scatter symbol is a horseshoe which only lands on reels 2, 3 and 4. The Golden Mane itself is the wild symbol which substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter. Wilds are the highest paying symbols with 5 of them in a winning line giving 100x the stake.
This is a random feature which can trigger during any base game spin. Scatter symbols will be added on the 3 middle reels. This can help land the necessary amount of scatters for triggering the free spins.
Players can trigger the free spins feature by landing 2 or more scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. The number of free spins depends on the number of scatters.
- Landing 2 scatters will award just 2 free spins
- Landing 3 scatters will award 6 free spins
The number of free spins is not big, however the free spins have a secondary feature.
- On the 1st free spin all white stallion symbols will work as wilds
- During the 2nd free spin both the white and black stallion symbols will work as wilds.
- The 3rd free spin will see both the white and black stallions, as well as the mountain symbols, work as wilds.
- And finally on the 4th free spin all high value symbols will work as wilds.
Players can retrigger the feature by landing 2 or 3 additional scatters during on of the free spins. The retrigger is very lucrative as a 3 scatter retrigger will take the total number of free spins to 12. Moreover from these 12 spins 8 of them will be with all the high value symbols working as wilds.
Golden Mane is a high volatility slot machine with an RTP of 96.9%. The max win on the base game is 100x the stack for 5 wilds on a winning line. However the wins can bi much bigger on the free spins thanks to the added wilds. The slot game has astonishing animations and superb graphics. Additionally, the gameplay is smooth and the soundtrack very engaging. In total, Golden Mane is an excellent online slot with great potential.
