Journey into the heart of India with this exotic slot machine from Euro Games Technology. On the 5 reels and 20 paylines, players will come across some iconic symbols of the Hindu religion as well as some wild and magnificent inhabitants of the South Asian country. Matching this symbols in the right way could result in the Kashmir Gold jackpot worth 100,000 credits. Giving you a helping hand is a wild symbol and a scatter feature icon which bestows 15 free spins with a x3 multiplier and an extra wild.
Have you ever wanted to escape to an enchanting land? Colour, riches, beauty and a little bit of spice combine to make this slot machine a perfect representation of modern day India. The reels are adequately designed to emulate the marvels of the vast country, showing natural wonders as well as great treasures and iconic landmarks.
On your journey, you will find artefacts such as an antique vase, an ancient book and a golden statuette of the elephant-headed god, Ganesha. After that you can step outside to come face to face with some of India's natural beasts – the magnificent peacock, the sacred cattle and the bold tiger. Another icon depicts an emblem of Vishnu, the four-armed central god of Hinduism and a male and female character also appear on the reels dressed in fine traditional garments.
These icons are not the most advanced in terms of graphics, but they still manage to capture the imagination thanks to some simple animations and sound effects. For example, line up a winning combination of tiger symbols to hear the ferocious beast roar!
Spinners of Kashmir Gold can opt to play with a set range of paylines – 1, 5, 10, 15 or 20 – and the stakes per line on offer are 1, 2, 5, 10, and 20. This does limit the range of wagers, but it still gives a good bit of leeway so that casual players can play with a minimum bet of 1 credit per spin while risk-takers can go all out with a 400-credit stake.
You can see for yourself just how much you could be set to win by clicking the (i) button in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. And there's no need to do any calculations because all payout values are automatically updated to coincide with your chosen bet per line value. But just to give you a taster of how much you can win, here's a run down of the payout values for five-in-a-row of each ordinary game symbol:
Kashmir Gold also has a wild symbol, which is represented as a golden sun emblem. Not only does this icon replace all ordinary images to complete winning sequences, but it will pay the slot machine's biggest jackpot win with a 5,000x line bet multiplier when five align.
Fancy some free spins? You could unleash 15 of them if you find three or more Taj Mahal scatter symbols with one spin regardless of whether they appear on active paylines or not. All wins accrued over these free games will be subject to a x3 multiplier and the male character icon will be given a temporary wild power to help complete even more winning combinations.
Plus, the Taj Mahal symbol will reward spinners with a total bet multiplier. Three in any reel position will times all of your wagers by 5x, while four will multiply them by 25x. The payout value for five scatters is 250x, which could potentially match the game's top jackpot if you were to play with all 20 paylines.
Let's face it, you're not going to be lining up huge wins with every spin of Kashmir Gold. However, the slot does give players a chance to double any small win that is lower than 35x the amount of the total bet. It's as simple as guessing the correct colour of a turned over playing card. But do you have the nerve to risk it all on a 50/50 punt?
This EGT slot machine takes players to a far and distant land of wonders and beauty with its authentic Indian artefacts and characters. Admittedly, there are games with similar themes which offer more impressive graphics, but Kashmir Gold is enchanting enough for some quick and satisfying spins. Plus, the promise of free games with tripled wins and an extra wild is always an attractive offer on this Mac compatible slot.
