We’re heading West and going mining in Inspired Gaming’s latest Megaways Slot, Gimme Gold Megaways Slot.
Inspired Gaming aptly live up to their name with Gimme Gold Megaways, where they seem to have drawn inspiration for the theme from Diamond Mine Megaways.
Although not particularly innovative or original, Gimme Gold Megaways look as viable as any if you’re looking to get a piece of Classic Megaways Action.
Gimme Gold Megaways Slot has a little bit of an underwhelming theme, with a desert background complete with canyons and cactus. Apart from that, and the wooden frames that support the mine, there isn’t really anything else noteworthy visually.
The music goes well with the theme of the game, but it’ll only play when the reels are spinning, as it falls almost completely silent when the game is idle.
It is without a shadow of a doubt a take on the popular Diamond Mine Megaways, but with graphics that are worse.
Betting options mostly cover the basis to suit the needs of players, with only super high rollers missing out. The lowest option in the game is £/€0.20, with the highest standard option at £/€10.
Inspired Gaming have included a Fortune Bet Feature which will change the stake, tripling your chance to land the bonus at the cost of increasing your stake by 50%.
Top Symbol in Gimme Gold Megaways Slot is the Prospector, followed by the Mine Cart, Pickaxe and Shovel. Low paying symbols are A, K, Q, J, 10 & 9. There is also a Wild Symbol, this will substitute for all except for the Scatter.
Gimme Gold Megaways Slot is a Megaways game in its purest form.
There are 6 reels in total, with an extra sliding reel above rows 2-5. To form a win, you need at least 3 symbols to match from left to right, starting from the left-most reel. On any spin, each reel may hold up to 7 symbols each. When each reel has 7 symbols, then the ways to win will be at it’s maximum 117,649.
This in itself can materialise in some nice wins, and the fact that Gimme Gold Megaways Slot also has cascading reels means that a chain reaction of wins can occur.
Inspired Gaming also include their Spin Chance feature within this game.
This will trigger when your balance drops below your selected stake, giving you the chance to gamble the remainder of your balance for a chance at winning a spin at your chosen stake.
On any Spin, mystery symbols may appear on the reels. This is represented by the dynamite symbol.
The Dynamite symbol will explode, causing itself and all other dynamite symbols to reveal a symbol of the same type.
This feature follows the same rules that the Base Game does in terms of where symbols need to be to connect, so if the revealed symbol is not on the left-most reel then the chain of symbols will miss.
To trigger the Free Spins, you need at least 4 Scatter Symbols, which will award 12 Spins.
An additional 2 spins are awarded for every additional Scatter after the fourth, up to a maximum of 80 Spins.
Gimme Gold Megaways has a classic bonus with its progressive multiplier feature. Each Cascade will cause the multiplier to increase by an increment of 1, and to re-trigger you’ll need Scatter Symbols which will now only appear in the sliding reel.
3 Scatters in view will award an additional 5 Spins, and 4 will award 10.
This bonus may be as standard as they come, but it can still be exciting when the multiplier is big and all you need is one big hit via the mystery symbols to land the big one.
This New Slot is a Bonus Buy Slot. Players outside the UK will be able to buy their way into the bonus.
The amount this costs hasn’t yet been confirmed by Inspired Gaming, but you can expect this to cost around 100x like Centurion did.
Gimme Gold Megaways Slot is quite frankly a Diamond Mine Megaways rip off, but that doesn’t make it a terrible game.
The potential for it to pay big is there thanks to the potential for 117,649 ways, mystery symbols and progressive bonus multiplier.
When playing Gimme Gold Megaways Slot, it seemed like it wasn’t easy to bonus, even with Fortune Bet activated, which says a lot about your chances if you don’t activate it.
The game seems a little bit lazy to be honest. Inspired Gaming are the same people that brought us the exciting and feature filled Centurion Megaways, and this game is a million miles away from being anywhere near as exhilarating as that.
Overall, Gimme Gold Megaways Slot has just as much potential as any other Megaways of the same type, but there’s no particular reason to choose this one over any of the others, especially Diamond Mine.
Gimme Gold Megaways Slot is a new game that will be available to play on most New Casinos from 22/03/2021
