is a game that is offered in 2016 by Microgaming, and yet it doesn’t have a superb design, or a boatload of features for players to enjoy. Instead, it looks mostly like a classic title, with lots of fruit icons and things like Gold Bars, plus it has a limited number of active paylines, only 9 of them being present inside.
The slot seems to have some sort of Sun theme as well, but it’s not easily visible. You see it in the background image, with the orange color of the sky and birds flying in, and in a couple of feature icons, but that’s it. The slot has 5 reels, 9 paylines and it awards prizes of up to $100,000.
What We Love
When it comes to the things I love about this game, it would mostly come down to the features it has in place. The wild is one of those features, a symbol which has a gold coin on it, with an S logo.
It appears like a regular wild on most positions of the game, but on the 3rd reel it can also expand, and take over the entire reel. Getting combinations of two to five wilds formed will result in payouts awarded to the player, going as high as 10,000 times the line bet, which in this slot would mean up to $100,000 cash.
If you’re looking for the free spins, those are present as well, and they’re awarded through the scatter symbol. It shows an image of an island bay at dawn, with the huge Sun coming out from the water.
It doesn’t pay as well, going up to 100 times the bet only, so up to $9,000 can be won with its help. You get paid for 2 or more scatters, but you trigger free spins with 3+.
You win 15 free games if enough scatter logos are on the reels, and you get a chance to retrigger them as well along the way. The expanding wild now appears on three reels (2, 3 and 4), instead of only one.
What We Do Not Like
I don’t really see the point of a slot machine with classic inspiration, especially since Microgaming has a lot of titles already which sport dated designs, and what they need most right now is high quality games, the kind I know they’re capable of delivering.
The symbols in this slot provide you with various types of fruits, with diamonds, bars and bells. All the regular symbols are this way, inspired by the classic slots.
The low number of lines is another problem I have with it, but at least they make up for the small number of wins with the value of the top jackpot.
The game is worth pursuing for that top prize, or if you really enjoy classic titles in somewhat modern form, but it’s not for everyone.
