Wrap up and prepare to brace the cold, because with Winter Gold from Microgaming, the winter olympics are coming to town. Of course, there is no mention of the Big O here, as there are copyright issues and unnecessary expenses at stake, but the world’s biggest winter sports event is definitely the main focus on this sporting themed pokie. Sports fans and pokie fans alike should head for a Microgaming casino like Spin Palace to play this game.
Winter Gold has 5 reels and 15 paylines, and the aesthetic has been incorporated really well. The backdrop is of an icy stadium, the unique symbols of the athletes and equipment are well designed and even the standard symbols have been given an icy makeover. You can almost feel the chill, and for a game that was created back in 2010, and one that doesn’t use the best graphics or animations, that is quite an achievement.
There is maximum win of 18,000 coins on Winter Gold, and there is a minimum bet that equates to just $0.01 per payline.
Once you land 3 or more of the scatter symbols, which come in the form of a gold medal with the word “Scatter” written across it, then you’ll be taken to a spinning wheel. This is where the game really comes to life. Depending on where the wheel lands you can unlock a free spins feature, an instant win, or a mini-game associated with one of a number of winter sports. These include ski jumping, biathlon, bobsleigh and speed skating. The games in themselves are far from big and impressive mini-games, but they are interesting nonetheless.
Winter Gold is great fun and it looks great as well, making this a fantastic choice for all pokie fans.
