Voodoo Gold Slot Game Review
Dark and eerie video slots are nothing new. Players love to get their adrenaline pumping with a scary game. Voodoo Gold is one such video slot that delivers the kind of experience players crave.
Graphics & Symbols
Set in the Southern United States, in swamp land, Voodoo Gold is not for the faint of heart. The background seen behind the reels shows a swamp with tall trees, emblazoned with skulls on the trunk of one tree.
A treasure hunter is in the swamp to search for riches and players are tasked with helping him find them. Among the things he has to search through are the game’s symbols, of which he is one. This includes bottles of potion, the heads of mummies, top hats and the claws of chickens. Other symbols on the reels are a heart, the skull of a ram, and a star with five points. Above the reels players will see a spooky house.
Anytime players spin the reels, they will hear a Southern tune played on a steel guitar. The tune is upbeat enough that it balances out the dark theme of the game.
The biggest bonus feature in this game is the cascading reels, which often include a special bomb symbol. Anytime a bonus symbol lands on the reels, a bomb, or even two, is released.
Cascading reels is a feature built into some slots, which automatically replaces the symbols on the reels each time a winning combination is achieved. The symbols that formed that combination are removed by the bomb and new symbols fall down to take their places. The cascading reels continue until the first time a winning combination of symbols is not achieved. At that point, players have to pay to keep spinning the reels.
This bonus feature is triggered every time a matching bonus symbol lands on the reels three times with one spin. It causes at least six symbols to land on the reels, but the luckiest players may get up to 15 symbols on the reels at once. The more bonus symbols appear the better the chance of getting all 15 symbols.
When the cascading reels feature is taking place wilds become sticky until the feature ends. Several wilds lead players to larger winnings than they could dream of.
