Rival Gaming recently released Gushers Gold, a Texas-themed slot game which went live March 30th, 2011. Gushers Gold is a name that refers to the amount of oil pumped from the ground across Texas. Due to the recent economy, oil is worth more than its weight in gold. The background in the game is set to the Texan desert while the symbols relate to the oil industry in addition to the vast wealth it generates. The symbols include:
- Oil rig
- Luxury car
- Map of Texas
- Wads of cash
- Ownership deed
- Trendy flask
- Texan tycoon
- Oil barrel
- Tycoon’s girlfriend
- Oil pump
The Texan tycoon icon is representative of the jackpot symbol thus delivering the highest payout in the game of 1,000 coins. This occurs when five or more tycoon’s appear on an active payline. The oil barrel is another special symbol that represents the wild icon which can be substituted for other symbols to make winning combinations. This symbol only appears in reels 1, 3 and 5. When it does appear, the character expands to all reels.
The tycoon’s girlfriend, wearing a tiara, grants the free spins round. To activate this bonus, players must hit three of these symbols anywhere on the reels which gives the player 3 free spins. When four symbols appear, 10 free spins are awarded and five symbols equates to 15 free spins. Payouts during this round are tripled.
Finally, the oil pump is the special symbol that triggers the bonus game. This occurs when three or more appear on any of the reels. The player is transported to an oil field where he must select one of the three oil rigs. Using the levers that appear, the player must then select from one of four depths to drill. The player must finally click to reveal his winnings. Depending on the result, the player can play the bonus game several times.
An additional feature in the game is random jackpot which is measured by the jackpot meter on the left side of the screen. After any spin, oil could flow into the meter. If the oil does not fill the meter, it will be dumped out. However, if it goes to the top, the player wins the jackpot.
With many extra games and features, Gushers Gold looks to be an exciting new addition to the Rival Gaming portfolio. To try the game, go to Ruby Royal online casino or Sloto’ Cash online casino.
