Black Gold is a 5-reel, 30-payline, high-definition online slot from BetSoft Gaming.
The slot has all the great animation, background music, and creative symbols that are now synonymous with all BetSoft products.
The main character in this slot is Ol' Bill with his old trusty horse. The backdrop features an oil rig, pipes flowing with oil, and barrels.
It's unfortunate that this game is not available on BetSoft's ToGo mobile platform, because it is one of the most lucrative slots offered by BetSoft. It is though available on Windows, Mac, or Linux operating systems and is web-based, therefore requires no downloading.
Black Gold is set in an oil rig somewhere in the desert, with flowing oil pipes visible in the background. The main character is Ol' Bill, and he is accompanied by his old trusty horse. A great country tune blares in the background as you go about your business in search of oil, but both the background sounds and music can be turned off if you prefer.
The theme is the perfect setting for an oil drilling experience, with the betting options set on an oil barrel and a tool box that looks like something straight from the Wild West. Ol' Bill in his cowboy hat and atop his horse completes the picture. Other symbols associated with the theme include the Oil Barrel, the Horse, and the Cowboy Hat.
This 5-reel, 3D video slot features wild reels, scatters, and free spins. Like many other 3D games from BetSoft, you have the option of betting per line or you can select the Max Bet feature, which will active all 30 paylines.
The game has a re-spin feature on the center reel, which is one of the best features BetSoft has come up with as far as instant payouts go. This feature is triggered when you make a winning combination on other reels. The center reel is re-spun while the other reels remain frozen. The re-spin has inbuilt multipliers that are added to your pay, making this pseudo free spin a very lucrative feature.
The Drilling for Oil bonus is activated when at least 3 Drill symbols appear across the reels. Then click on any of them to unveil a reward for a quick click me bonus.
The Night Time Free Spins bonus gives you a chance to increase the multiplier. This is a great opportunity for winning big. This bonus is activated when you land on 3 or more Barn Scatter symbols.
When Oil Pump symbols run across the reels, you trigger the Oil Pump bonus. This leads you to a high-or-low guessing game. If you get 4 guesses correct, you have struck oil!
To strike it rich, you need to select any value of the coins, which come in denominations of 0.02 to 0.50. The jackpot value is 10,000 coins. The highest paying symbol is Ol' Bill, which earns you 2,000 credits.
Black Gold is a highly interactive slot with a theme that will thrill anyone. The sound can be turned off from the top right of the main console. The game also has an autoplay feature. The credits earned are displayed at the top of the screen and the icons for Max Bet, Spin and Coin Value are creatively displayed at the bottom of the screen.
