Where to play
As mentioned above there seems to be quite a number of things going on in Gold Frenzy, making sure the slot hasn't got a chance of being boring. The main feature is of course the free spins feature which is triggered by the scatter symbols. As well as the free spins feature you of course have the Rapid Fire jackpots.
The symbol to be looking out for in this slot is of course the scatter symbol, as this is the symbol that will trigger the free spins feature. The scatter symbol is represented by a bunch or dynamite sticks and when 3 or more of these symbols land on the reels, the feature will be activated. These symbols can land anywhere on the reel set and will give you between 10 and 20 free spins.
During the free spins feature, you will see that the symbol showing a farmer holding a golden nugget will be appearing on the reels. He will reward you with 1x, 10x, 50x or 500x your total stake for 2, 3 4 or 5 on a pay line. The farmer is another scatter symbol in the game which is only active during the free spins feature. During any spin where the farmer appears on the reels, you will be rewarded for each golden nugget that also lands on the reels. The golden nuggets will give you up to 50x your total stake for 7 on a pay line.
The feature will continue until all the free spins have been used, however the feature cannot be re-triggered during the free spins feature.
Jackpot King Bonus feature
Seeing that Gold Frenzy is a part of the Jackpot King network you will gain access to the Jackpot King bonus feature once 5 Jackpot King symbols land on the reels 1 to 5. You have the Royal Pot, the Regal Pot and the Jackpot King. Should you manage to trigger the Jackpot King, you will be looking at a six figure prize!
After you land the 5 Jackpot King symbols you will be taken to a new set of reels, all of them with golden crowns. The more golden crowns you manage to collect, the better and bigger your wins will be. Should you manage to collect 15 of the crowns you will be directed onwards to the Wheel King bonus. This “wheel of fortune” game is a spinning wheel consisting of blank spaces as well as the three jackpots. All is left to do then is to cross your fingers and hope the wheel stops on one of the jackpots.
After collecting golden crowns you will also be able to pick out one of the five icons. Then you can spin the reels again in an attempt to collect more crowns, stop the bonus feature and collect your winnings or of course trigger the Wheel King bonus.
Design and Symbols
Even though Gold Frenzy has a title that makes us expect a wild and frantic slot, this isn't quite what we got upon loading the game. It is in fact a surprisingly laid back slot, of course with the exception of the sound effects when landing a win. In the background you will be seeing a canyon and blue skies along with a couple of cacti here and there, while the reel set itself hasn't even been framed in any way.
On the reels you will be seeing a couple of different symbols. The low-value symbols are the standard playing cards showing 10, J, Q, K and A all designed with a colourful wooden texture. High-value symbols on the reels consist of a green lantern, a barrel of what we are guessing is some kind of booze, a shovel and a pick as well as a grey and fluffy little dog. The dog, who we suspect must belong to the farmer who shows up during the free spins feature is the symbol of highest value, giving you 200x your total stake for 5 of a kind.
There are a total of 2 different special symbols you will be seeing on the reels. The first one is of course the scatter symbol that will trigger the free spins feature, this symbol is represented by a bunch of dynamite sticks. The other is yet another scatter symbol, but this one will only be showing up during the free spins feature and will be showing you the gold miner himself.
Our Thoughts on Gold Frenzy
Gold Frenzy is the type of slot that you either love or hate. In our opinion, the slot simply didn't quite live up to our expectations. When hearing the name “Gold Frenzy” we were looking forward to an action packed slot filled with excitement and well, a little frenzy! This is not at all what we found ourselves looking at, with a pretty simple background and overall design of the game as well as not much going on around the reel set in terms of animations.
Then again, if you simply are looking for a slot with a couple of great jackpots to play for, this might be a great choice for you. There is no denying that there is after all 3 giant jackpots you can get your hands on here. Even though we would have liked to see at least one more feature in the game, we kind of liked the free spins feature and the fact that you can land several multipliers thanks to the miner and the golden nuggets. All in all a pretty decent slot, but Red Tiger Gaming have better options available.
