Gold Frenzy is powered by Blueprint Gaming and has 5 reels and 10 paylines. Available to play from 10p to £50 a spin across all compatible devices like PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones, this gold mining themed offering comes with a Free Spins feature where you can play with up to 20 free spins – you also collect golden nuggets for cash prizes. As part of the Jackpot King network, there’s 3 progressive jackpots to be won.

Visually, Gold Frenzy is set with a canyon in the backdrop – symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well as lanterns, bottles of alcohol, spades, pick axes, golden nuggets, a male character and his faithful dog. The latter is the most rewarding giving you 200 times your stake for 5 across a payline.

The other important symbol is the dynamite scatter – 3, 4 or 5 will trigger the Free Spins feature and give you 10, 15 or 20 free spins. During the feature, the male character scatter symbol comes into play – 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline will give you 1, 10, 50 or 500 times your stake.

Furthermore, when it appears on the reels, you will be rewarded with a cash prize for every golden nugget – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 golden nuggets will give you 2, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 50 times your stake. This could occur on every free spin in theory.

As part of the Jackpot King network, you can enter the Jackpot King Bonus feature when you see 5 Jackpot King overlay symbols on reel 1 to 5. You then spin the reels to collect crown symbols which give you cash prizes – if you get 15 or more, you will enter the Wheel King section. Here you can win more cash prizes or win 1 of 3 progressive jackpots – the Jackpot King jackpot is always the biggest!

Gold Frenzy is quite a simple slot for Blueprint Gaming seeing that most of their offerings lately have lots of bonus features. Variance wise its medium to high with the bigger wins coming in the Free Spins feature due to the high value male character scatter – the golden nuggets also help. The Jackpot King element also helps but as a slot, I much prefer Diamond Mine (by Blueprint Gaming) which has a similar theme and uses the excellent MegaWays game engine from Blueprint Gaming.
