Sharing is caring!

Our rating:
  • Another dull design but some features are enticing
  • Gold symbols can lead to some nice rewards
  • Grand Chase Features can get you the big grand jackpot

Gold Pile: New Years Gold may have a boring and overused design and theme, but the features here are far from it and with some good jackpots on the line, this could be a good slot for some. Let’s take a closer look and see what’s on offer. To start, you have 5 reels with 3 rows giving you 25 pay lines. You just need a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols which are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:

  • 9 or 10
  • Jack or Queen
  • King or Ace
  • Scroll or coins
  • Lanterns or Drum
  • Symbols

There are also 2 wild symbols in this game. They both substitute for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the scatter and other gold symbols, but the regular wild is the most valuable symbol in the game by some margin.

Gold Pile: New Years Gold Slot Bonuses and Features

Gold Pile Feature. Every symbol, apart from the scatter, has a gold counterpart. Which can appear on reel 5. You can choose the gold meter percentage which will determine how likely it is that such a symbol will appear. If you get a 5 of a kind win with a gold symbol, a maxi or mini prize will be given. This is determined by whether the symbol on reel 5 is a high or low value symbol.

Grand Chase Feature. If such a win does not have any substitutes, this feature is triggered. Alternatively, it’s triggered by landing 4 wild symbols and a gold wild on a line. 3 spins are given here. Only reel 5 will spin, containing only gold and grand symbols. If the right position has a grand symbol, the grand prize is given. If it only has a gold symbol, the mini or maxi prize will be given.

Free Spins Bonus. To trigger this you will need at least 3 scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels at the same time. This will also award you with a small payout, though landing 4 or 5 can give you a nice reward up to 100x your stake. You’ll be given 6 free spins, but landing another 3 or more scatters will give you 3 more free spins. Here, any wild symbol, gold or regular, that lands will stick in place for the entire duration of the bonus. A wild held on reel 5 may change to a gold wild at any point. This gold wild can also change back to a regular wild. Both the gold pile and grand chase features are available here.

Conclusion

Gold Pile: New Years Gold slot from Playtech certainly has a tiring theme and does not stand out from the crowd in this regard. However, some of the features are very interesting. The gold symbols work in a way that can help you get the jackpots, your main goal in this slot. The mini and max jackpots are OK, but the grand jackpot is very enticing and can only be won from the Grand Chase Feature. I think it’s quite a fun idea and choose your gold percentage is a nice touch, making the slot more engaging and letting you choose how it’s played. All in all, could be worth checking out for some but it’s not the best slot out there. You can find other Playtech slots here.
