Hunt For Gold, created by Play N Go, is an online slot game. It features a theme based around swashbuckling pirate adventure, brought to life by a series of high quality symbols and excellent sound design. It must be said, however, that although the symbols designs are extremely detailed, they might have been a bit more imaginative, especially given the theme. Its all fruit and lucky sevens in Hunt For Gold, which is a touch disappointing.
An eye patch wearing pirate certainly wouldn’t have been a bad idea. In terms of play style the game uses a fairly standard five reel, ten play line system. What is interesting, however, is that Hunt For Gold allows very specific control over which betting lines the player would like to use. Other slot games allow only the adding of betting lines, but are not able to select exactly which betting line it is they would like to add. In this game a player may tap or click the exact play line, which will open it up for betting. This is a rather astonishing level of freedom as far as online slot games are concerned.
As already said, there are no parrots or cannons to be found in Hunt For Gold, which will surely be missed. What one will notice, however, is that each symbol has been designed with obvious passion and attention to detail, regardless of how bland the subject material is. The most valuable symbol in the game is the lucky sevens, which have been designed to have the sort of dramatic flair used in the hand writing of the old days.
The sevens pay out a good amount if matched five times and a decent amount if matched three times, which any online casino guide you read will tell you are decent odds! Next on the list, in terms of payout value, is the bell symbol. This golden bell looks real enough to reach out and touch, and the creepy skull design is remarkably detailed. This is followed by the grapes symbol, the lemon, treasure chest, and cherries. Lets take a look at some of the bonus symbols that will help the player locate a bit of old pirate treasure.
A pirate themed game would be nothing without a treasure hunt, and Hunt For Gold is happy to oblige. If the player matches the treasure chest icon a total of five times, a mini-game will be triggered. This involves the player being presented with a treasure map, upon which various locations have been marked. The player must tap or click on three of the icons, to see if they have guessed the location of the treasure.
The game is generous, however, and even if the player guesses wrong they will get a bit of money for their trouble. The second bonus symbol is the scatter symbol, represented by a golden wheel. Upon being matched the golden wheel will trigger the spin game. In this game, the player must spin the classic wheel of fortune, which acts exactly as you would expect. The jackpot prize on this wheel, however, is the sort of money a person will be writing home about.
