Ask almost anyone to name a handful of elements or ideas that strike them as being truly Texan, and you’re bound to end up with one or more of the following replies: Cowboy Boots and signature Texan Hats, Chilli Cook Outs, Texan Homecoming Mums, good old fashioned manners and that old familiar Texan Swank. The Deep South certainly leaves a lasting impression, if anything, and is clearly the inspiration behind Betsoft’s Black Gold.
3D Online Slot Machine
The most striking feature about the game at first glance, is no doubt the 3D graphics. The animations are life like and obviously mindfully sewn together by the creators of the game. The colours are vivid and appealing, and this creates a stimulating environment for playful interaction. Despite the high resolution of the graphics, the game runs effortlessly on all available platforms.
3D Animated Symbols
Symbols, all 3D and mostly animated, include Oil Pumps, Gallon Barrels, Bull Horns, No Trespassing Signs, a gullible looking Horse and Money Stacks. Ol’ Bill’s symbol pays a lucrative 2 000 credits at maximum bet.
The Drilling For Oil Feature
Landing 3 or more Oil Drill symbols will activate the Drilling For Oil Feature. A player is then prompted to select one of the Oil Drills on the screen, each Drill revealing a different bonus prize.
The Standard Features
Black Gold features 5 Reels, 30 Pay lines and a maximum Jackpot kitty containing 10 000 credits. The game is non-progressive. In order to win the Jackpot, 5 Cowboy symbols must be landed on activated pay lines. Up to 5 credits may be bet on each pay line.
Night-time Free Spins Special Feature
This special feature is activated when a player lands 3 or more Barn symbols. The barn symbol also doubles as a wild during a free spins round.
The High-Low Bonus Game
Landing 3 or more Oil Pump symbols (the scatters) activates this unusual but fun, feature. A player must wager a guess as to whether the next amount of oil drilled will be higher or lower than the current loot, adding an element of speculation, as is so often the case when drilling for oil in real life. Whether correct or incorrect, the number of guesses that ends the Bonus Game either way is 4.
The Re-Spinning Centre Reel Feature
After each win, the Re-Spinning Centre Reel Feature is activated. The centre reel spins whilst all the other reels are held in a stationary position. If a player collects a win from this, a 2xmultiplier is activated, and the Re-Spinning Centre Reel Feature is re-activated. Multipliers may increase up to a total of x5.
Versatile and Available
Black Gold is runs on all platforms and devices, including mobile devices at online gambling Kenya sites. This makes the game easily accessible by a wide range of players. It can be played for real winnings or for fun. The special features are entertaining, regardless of whether the game is played for winnings or mere merriment.
