Our Thoughts regarding Gold King
Play’n Go Did a great job with Gold King when it comes to the design and the special features that are there. The Stacked symbols and the touch of the king appear fairly often, which keeps your balance intact. I played the slot for maybe 20 minutes today, and during that time, I was not able to activate any free-spins. - I reckon luck was not on my side today.That said, due to the regular special features in the main game, I lost about 1% of my balance during my spins. So I would say you get a decent amount of entertainment for the money you spend.
