California Gold Overview

California Gold

This is an adventurous slot machine which takes players to the mines to look for treasure. California Gold is designed with 20 paylines, 3 rows, and 5 reels. This slot is based on the California Gold Rush which started in 1848 and lasted for 7 years. The background is designed with mountains and blue skies.

Adventurous Gameplay

Players can play this slot for real money or for free at online casinos. When playing for real money, the player will be required to place their stake first. The minimum bet is 0.01 coins for one bet line. The maximum stake you can place is 40 coins for one spin. Symbols you will meet on the paylines are a donkey, pick, lantern, mining truck, map, dynamite, and bandit. You win a jackpot of 5000 times your bet when you steal gold from other prospectors.  A winning combination will be formed when the player lands three, four or five similar icons on a winning bet line. This slot machine has two special icons which are:

  • Miner – The miner is the wild icon. It will only appear on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th reels. The miner completes winning combination by substituting other icons apart from the scatter. When it completes a winning line, the payouts will be multiplied by two.

Another game listed under Microgaming software which came as a surprise to me, because I am not use to see this games under this software. California Gold is a 20 liner videos slot with 5 reels, here the bet takes from 0.20 cents, so yes another cheaper game where we can play, especially for low rollers as me. The California Gold has decent graphics, although don't expect too much, because all their games are similar, but still wit decent payout.The California slot game has free spins and a bonus feature, which by my opinion with the bonus round you won’t benefit much from it, because even with a bigger bet as I have played many times you won’t get more then 50 X your bet stake, well that's from my experience. The guy hiding behind the stones is the wild symbol, so yes; he will substitute all the symbols on the reels helping you complete a winning line. But also the wild symbol triggers the bonus round, which you'll need three of them anywhere on the reels so the bonus round could start.The bonus round called Mad Miner Bonus will take you on another screen where you will have a chance to pick from 5 mines path, so the Gold miner will go with that gold trolley and collect all the gold on his way. The prize is cash prize and multiplier X2, but as I said you won’t benefit that much from that round. The free spins feature is more generous, so the Gold nuggets are the scatter symbols, lending any three anywhere on the reels will activate the free spins bonus round with 10 free spins which are multiplied X 3.California Gold video slot has never been my favorite slot, even I have played lots of times and only few times managed to win something decent, don’t know should I recommend this game, being 20 liner which I am not use to, but eve playing with 25 lines still think is a average game with medium variance payout table.

This game has 2 bonus rounds, the free spins and the mad miner bonus game. It is so strange that I have never triggered the free spins round. All the time I had to cope with the mad miner. This bonus is really good, I cannot complain but I would also like to see how good the free spins can pay.

I played California Gold with a 1 euro bet because I was hoping that the winnings will be better this way. I know that it is very easy to trigger the bonus during this game even though during the base game there are almost no payouts at all. This is another 5 reel 20 pay lines video slot powered by Microgaming. The theme is probably the California Gold Rush. So like the miners tried during the rush, I also had to try my luck with this slot. All the symbols are crafted to match the theme. So you can see symbols like a cart of gold, a map, sticks of dynamites and more.I got the bonus only after 20 spins and then I had to choose one of four mines. I chose the fourth one and got 40 euros. Couple of spins later I hit the bonus round again. I chose the first mine and I got only 15 euros this time. During the base game I lost all of my money. So it was like I was winning and losing at the same time. Every time I hit the bonus my balances increases then until I trigger the next bonus I lose all of my winnings. The third time I got the bonus I chose the third mine and I got only 8 euros. So it was like gradually the amount of cash was dropping down with every next bonus round. This is when I realized it is better to stop playing the slot and collect my winnings.

Arabian rose it is new Quickfire release, at least looks so, because I tried this slot few months ago only at 32 red instant play casino, and also I never saw this game at any download casino, so it is Quickfire portfolio game.This game looks good, yeah, you know that I never lie about it, and if game really looks good, then game really looks good. Symbols made nice, and layout is great. Sounds is also pretty ok, good job Microgaming!Game has 40 paylines, and wilds on all reels. Wilds did not have anything special, but good thing that it lands quite often, I can not say that it is hard to see wilds on this slot. There is no any bonus game, but it is possible to trigger freespins feature by +3 scatters. Then you pick scatter, and will be awarded number of picks. Picks can increase your multiplier for freespins, and most interesting thing that you can earn two more extra wilds, which of course give you a chance to hit big. So perfect pick is x 2 multipliers and two extra wilds, I did not have such pick during my gameplay, unfortunately.I tried this slot only once like I said in the beginning, at 32 red casino instant play. I had about 20$ left after playing TS II slot, and decided to try this Arabian rose. I played at minimum 0.40 bets, and during my gameplay was able to have two freespins features, but unfortunately both did not pay anything great, and I finish with zero. But I think I need to try this slot again, it is definitely has potential to hit big.I rate this slot with 7 stars, not bad game at Quickfire portfolio. It was a pleasure to play for me this slot, unfortunately I did not win, but probably next time I will be more lucky.

California Gold it is Microgaming game, but with this sort of games, which actually unlikely made by Microgaming. I am also never saw any game like this in download casinos, so it is just in Quickfire package (i.e. you will find it at many casinos with Quickfire software).There is 25 paylines on this slot game, and game looks typically to similar games in this sort. They old of course, but look still good, I am even think that games look better than Microgaming nine liners. Of course far away from modern games, does not expect anything even close to this. But ok, game looks ok for me, really.Game has all chances to be played by you not only once, but again and again, it is dynamic one and I found it interesting for myself. Why no, there are wilds which double win (only on reels 2, 3, 4). If you get 3 wilds at same spin - you got bonus feature. Nothing really special, just picking mine and see short animations. Can't say about max prize there, I have had couple of 50x total bet bonus games here, and also not forget that 3 wilds at same time also usually give moderate win, but can give huge one. Another feature - freespins feature, which triggered by 3 or more scatters, it is triggered not very hard, not like at DOA this is for sure. 10 freespins with x 3 multiplier, nothing special, but wins there is good.I played this game probably 10 times in total, not much, but each time I have decent playtime, frequest features, and some moderate wins. I never hit more than 100x total bet, but there is was some frequent good wins, which boost balance good.Can't say anything interesting more, game is interesting to play sometimes, you know this all modern game is awesome of course, but sometimes it is great to give a shot to old game, such games usually give a lot of playtime, and sometimes they also pay decent money.


I declare that my review is based on my own experience and represents my genuine opinion of this slot.
