Join us as we head to the swamps of Louisiana with Kane, an explorer who’s on the hunt for gold lurking in the depths of the marshlands. Voodoo Gold online slot is a brand new game from the creators at ELK Studios, and forms part of their Gold series. Other quality games from them include Hong Kong Tower and Hidden. The theme is a positive in an industry crying out for originality, so let’s investigate the specs of a title that shows quite a bit of promise on the surface.
The first thing you’ll note when opening the game is the sleek intro video. ELK Studios has done a sterling job in putting this slot together from an aesthetics point of view, as the visuals are very good to look at. You’ll also notice that the reels don’t spin but rather cascade. This means that symbols don’t spin and come to a rest to reveal combinations, but rather fall into the reels to reveal symbols. When a winning combination occurs the winning symbols will be removed, while the symbols left behind will fall into their places and new symbols will fall into the reels. This will keep happening as long as winning combinations appear. You’ll be able to play Voodoo Gold on your mobile device as well as tablet over and above your desktop.
ELK Studios has made the maximum payout £500,000.00, which is a massive amount. You’ll definitely be able to buy a fleet of hovercrafts to go exploring the Louisiana swamps. There is a reason, however, that the jackpot is so high. The maximum bet is £1000.00 per spin, and to win the full jackpot you’ll have to wager the max bet. There’s very few players brave enough to wager £1000.00 on a slots game, but if there are some high rollers out there then this is definitely their game. There’s the ability to activate up to 262,144 ways to win – an amount of paylines that opens you up to countless winning chances.
ELK Studios has given us 12 regular symbols, which is definitely above average for how many symbols exist in a game. They start in value with a few simple icons, including a cross, a star, a ram and a heart. The symbols start rising in value with a bottle of poison, a hen’s foot, dice with strange drawings and a top hat. The highest value symbols consist of 2 voodoo characters, a skull and, the highest paying regular symbol, Kane.
There’s a wild symbol that will substitute all the regular symbols to create a winning payline. It’s a voodoo doll, and the only symbol it won’t be able to substitute is the bonus icon. It also won’t be able to substitute the bomb icons that can fall on the reels.
Bonuses and Jackpots
As the symbols don’t spin but rather drop, the bonus feature is called free drops. Landing 3 or more bonus icons will trigger the free drops feature. Landing 3 bonus symbols will award you 6 free drops, 4 bonus symbols awards 9 free drops, 5 bonus symbols 12 free drops and 6 bonus symbols 15 free drops. All wilds that fall during the bonus feature become sticky, and will remain on the reels for the duration of the spins.
Landing 1 bonus symbol will trigger the single bomb feature. The bomb will explode on the reels to clear the symbols around it. This results in more symbols falling into the reels to create better winning chances. Landing 2 bonus symbols will result in 2 bombs falling into the reels. When this happens the symbols between the 2 bombs will be cleared.
Play Voodoo Gold Slot at PartyCasino
Playing Voodoo Gold online slot is quite fun, especially playing with cascading symbols. As with many online slots, it’s also an added benefit that some symbols can land as expanded icons, meaning they take up multiple spaces to create better winning chances. The maximum bet of £1000.00 is far too big, but you don’t have to bet that high by any means. All in all it is a very solid effort by ELK Studios, and the features play out in an entertaining manner. The gold is calling out to you, and the swamps are where you’ll find it.
