Gold Fusion Slot Review

Games Global partner Slingshot Studios is back with a bang in their latest release, Gold Fusion!

Gold Fusion is set in space, exactly where it belongs. It is way too chaotic to be on earth mixing with ordinary slots. Every spin has its own mysterious feel that has you on the edge of your seat. 

Slingshot Studios loves the jackpot spin feature, and you will be over the moon to find out it is back. Let’s find out what else Gold Fusion has in store for us in our in-depth review!

Gold Fusion - Base Game

Gold Fusion – Base Game

Base Game & Features

Gold Fusion is a 5-reel, 3-row slot developed and produced by Slingshot Studios. Every spin contains 20 pay lines in which a maximum win of up to 7,500x your bet can land.

Players can play Gold Fusion with a minimum bet of £/€0.20 and a maximum bet of £/€30. If you like to play with a bet between the two, do not worry, it has several available bet sizes between the minimum and maximum stakes.

The low-paying symbols are 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A. They pay between 1 and 2 times the bet when five matching symbols land. The high-paying symbols pay between three and eight times the bet for five symbols. Keep an eye out for the Wild symbol, which substitutes for all symbols apart from the scatter, upgrade, and trigger symbols; they can land in the base game and free spins round.

Gold Fusion is a highly volatile slot with a hit frequency of 20.5%. Slingshot Studios has released three versions with different RTP ratings – 96.24%, 94.24%, and 92.4%. Please check the version your chosen casino provider has before playing!

Trigger Symbols

Like the Wild, Trigger Symbols can land in the base game and free spins round. They will not reward payouts. However, they can disappear to show the symbols underneath. They can also replace a symbol already present.

Upgrade Symbols

Upgrade Symbols also act as a cover. When an upgrade occurs, unlike Trigger Symbols, they disappear to reveal the symbol underneath. Again, they can not reward payouts.

Base Game Feature Tabs

Above the reels is a special feature tab. Every time an Upgrade or Trigger symbol lands, the prize attached to the tab is improved.

Once a bonus feature triggers, the upgraded tabs reset. They are not available during free spins. It is possible to receive more than one prize per spin, starting from the furthest left reel. Below are the features available:

Wild Multipliers

Found above reel 1 and can award multipliers worth between 2x and 10x to symbols that land on the first reel. Each time you land an Upgrade Symbol, the multiplier increases. Land one Trigger Symbol and you will receive the prize.

Mini Jackpot

Located above the second reel, and awards wins of between 10x and 30x the bet. One Upgrade Symbol increases the jackpot by 20% of the bet. By landing four Trigger Symbols, you will trigger the prize.

Extra Wilds

Found above reel three. They add between 2 and 10 wilds to the reels randomly. Land one Upgrade Symbol, and you will gain more wilds. By landing a Trigger Symbol, you will receive the prize. Additional Wilds do not replace wilds already on the reels.

Minor Jackpot

Can be found above the fourth reel, and it rewards a win worth between 30x and 80x the bet. By landing an Upgrade Symbol, the jackpot gets boosted by 50% of the bet. Like the mini jackpot, four Trigger Symbols will reward you with the prize.

Walking Wilds

Adds 1, 2, or 3 walking wilds to reel five. Each time an Upgrade Symbol lands, an extra walking wild gets added. Like the rest, Trigger Symbols will give you the prize. With every spin that passes, the walking wilds move one reel to the left. Once they reach reel one, they get removed.

Jackpot Spin

Major and Grand Jackpots can land during the base game. The jackpot that lands depends on the upgrade achieved during the Jackpot Free Spins feature. The Grand jackpot pays between 2,500x and 7,500x the bet, and the Major jackpot pays between 250x and 750x.

Bonus Buy

Purchasing the Buy Feature gives you instant access to the Free Spins Randomizer and Free Spins round. You can buy the feature for 50x your bet.

Free Spins

Landing 3 Scatter Symbols will trigger the Free Spins round. Upgrade and Trigger symbols can land and improve the tab above the reels. Before the round starts, spin the Free Spins wheel to receive one of the following:

  • Wild Multiplier Free Spins – Rewards ten Free Spins and a Wild Multiplier above each reel. It can reward multipliers between two and ten times on the reel below the feature tab.
  • Extra Wilds Free Spins – Awards 10 Free Spins and an Extra Wild tab above each reel. This round can add up to ten wilds to the reels during any free spin.
  • Walking Wild Free Spins – Again, awards 10 Free Spins, but this time, Walking Wild tabs get added to each reel.
  • Jackpot Free Spins – Awards 10 Free Spins and a jackpot tab above each reel. A minor, major, or grand jackpot can all be triggered.

Before the Free Spins round begins, you have the opportunity to purchase 1 of the remaining 3 options from the Wheel for an additional fee. Alternatively, you can stick to your current Free Spins round, if you so choose. This function may not be available to every player.

  • Hit frequency of 20.5%
  • Opportunity to alter your current Free Spins round for a fee

Conclusion

I think it is clear that Gold Fusion is a game for those experienced in slot playing. It has many features that take some getting used to but could easily cause confusion for those new to online slots. 

From the moment the game loads, you can tell it is top-quality, delivering a colourful background with clear instructions, the first impression is a positive one.

As for the bonus features, they are out of this world. This is not because the game is somewhat space-themed, but they are quite Impressive. Trigger and Upgrade symbols give you hope that what you have can get better, and we love the idea of the feature tabs which help the game move on via magnificent features and prevent gameplay from turning stale. 

If you love free spins, you’ll be in your element playing Gold Fusion. Not only does it have a bonus round, but it also has a wheel that can reward you with free spins and a max win of 7,500x your bet.

Before playing Gold Fusion, we were sceptical, but looking back, we had no reason to be. Slingshot Studios produced an attention-grabbing slot, one that provides a thrilling experience!
