Gold Oasis Slot Review 2024

Hop on the back of a camel and set off into the sunset in search of Golden treasures in Pragmatic Play’s latest release, Gold Oasis!

We’re traveling in hump-back style across the sandy desert in search of hidden treasures and glorious Gold, but if only there was a magical lamp with a Genie inside just waiting to grant us wishes (One being a faster means of travel).

As far as design goes, Gold Oasis is quite a picture. Beautiful orange and pink colours cover the sky, with the glow of the sun reflecting off the sand, and even the creepy skull mountain looks the part.

The design is further complimented by a peaceful soundtrack, the occasional camel grunt, and the sand blowing through the wind. (Just be grateful it isn’t the sound of something smellier coming from the camel).

With a theme similar to that of Aladdin, there’s still a chance to stumble upon a Genie, but will we be so lucky? Let’s play on and find out!

Symbol Duel

During any random spin in the base game, the Symbol Duel feature can trigger at random. Once active, 1 High or Low-paying symbol is chosen at random to replace all instances of 2-10 other High or Low-paying symbols on the final screen.

Gold Oasis Free Spins

Landing 3 Scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 in the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 5 Free Spins and a payout of 2x your bet.

During Free Spins, all symbols will pay as 5 of a kind for all winning combinations. Each Scatter symbol that lands will be collected at the top of the reel set.

For every 2 Scatters collected, a duel between 2 random High or Low-paying symbols will occur. The symbol that wins the duel will replace all instances of the losing symbol on the reels for the duration of Free Spins, up to a maximum of 10 Duels per Free Spins round.

Each Duel that occurs will award additional Free Spins. The first 5 Duels will award +2 Free Spins, and the next 5 will award +1 Free Spin each.

Gold Oasis Bonus Buy

Those outside the UK will benefit from a Bonus Buy option. Pragmatic Play has granted players access to the Free Spins and Super Free Spins round for 100x and 200x your bet respectively.

The Super Free Spins round guarantees the Highest-paying symbol out of the two during Duels will win. (Free Spins RTP 96.01%) (Super Free Spins RTP 96.04%)

Gold Oasis: Our Verdict

Gold Oasis is a breath of fresh air with an interesting Symbol Duel feature, Free Spins round, and a heightened Super Free Spins round if you’re able to access it via a Bonus Buy option.

During the Duel process in Free Spins, the best outcome would be for a number of different symbols to be converted into one specific symbol, as we witnessed during testing. This leads to more opportunities to hit bigger wins with multiple symbols having been converted to one symbol type.

This is possible in both Free Spins and Super Free Spins, but it’s guaranteed in Super Free Spins. That being said, Super Free Spins is only available to those with access to the Bonus Buy option and it comes at a hefty price.

Fear not players, Pragmatic Play gives you a taste of the Free Spins round during the Symbol Duel feature in the base game, where between 2 and 10 symbol instances can be converted into one High or Low-paying symbol chosen at random.

Things only get better in terms of statistics. On a good day, Gold Oasis can deliver max wins of up to 7,260x your bet. With the Symbol Duel feature, Free Spins, and Super Free Spins round to guide you, the max win cap is certainly on the horizon!
