Black River Gold Slot

Our rating:
  • A great looking slot taking you back to the wild west
  • Wild compass feature helps add lots of wilds during the base game
  • Free spins bonus can lead some rather impressive payouts

Black River Gold slot from Elk Studios takes you back to the times of the wild west but I have to say that, despite being a very popular theme for slots, this one does stand out with a nice backdrop and some good graphics. If the reel setup looks a bit unusual, that’s because of the avalanche feature and the potential to add new rows but we’ll come onto that shortly. All you need to do to get a win is get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols which are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:

  • Jack, Queen, King or Ace (lowest value)
  • Amulet or Badge
  • Glass or Gun
  • Blue Jewel
  • Gold
  • Diamond
  • Man (highest value)

There’s a wild symbol too which substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the scatter symbol.

Black River Gold Slot Bonuses and Features

Avalanche. This slot has the avalanche, or cascade, feature whereby winning symbols are removed from the reels to allow new ones to fall in on the same spin. Furthermore, an additional row is added when this happens up to a maximum of 8 rows.

Wild Compass. There’s a wild compass symbol which, when you get a match using the symbol, those symbols then become wilds. When it reaches the bottom row it also becomes a wild.

Revolver. This game features large symbols which can be of size 2×2, 3×3 or even 4×4 and they can appear on any drop. These large symbols can absorb smaller symbols below it, becoming a revolver. The represents all symbols that have been absorbed and it becomes wild when it’s full.

Free Spins Bonus. You need to land at least 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger this. 3 will give you 10 free spins, whereas 4 will give you 15, 5 will give you 20 and 6 will give you 25. During the bonus, all wild symbols are collected and kept at the bottom until a spin is over. They then become sticky until they are part of a win. You also have safety levels which is originally set at 4 rows but for every spin that results in a win, the level moves up one meaning all further spins will start at the new safety level to give you more rows to work with.

Black River Gold slot from Elk Studios has some familiar features but does a good job in adding some new ones that work well with the theme. You’ve probably seen slots before with the avalanche feature that offers additional rows when you get wins and cascades. The free spins bonus also works to improve this, as it does in some other slots, providing you with a minimum number of rows for each spin. The large symbols can work well here to offer some decent rewards and the way it becomes a revolver is certainly interesting and a nice touch. I think if you like this style of slot you’ll be very impressed with this one, it’s definitely one of the better ones out there. That said, it’s not for everyone so just bare that in mind. You can see some of their other slots here too if you want.
