Enter the shaman hideout

Visually, Voodoo Gold is excellent. Set in the mangrove swamps in Louisiana, Kane reaches the shaman hideout. With dark graphics, this secret realm is protected by the power of the shaman. With the reels set amongst 2 trees, symbols include hearts, deer heads, stars, crosses, hats, dice, chicken feet and potion bottles.

You’ll also see the shaman, a native Indian, a skulls mortar and pestle as well as adventurer Kane. Kane is the most rewarding symbol with 3, 4, 5 or 6 on a payline giving you 1, 1.5, 2 or 2.5 times your stake. The voodoo doll is the wild and replaces all symbols bar the bonus symbol.

Avalanche feature

Voodoo Gold uses an Avalanche feature – you will begin played with 4 rows and 4,096 ways to win. When you get a winning combination, the winning symbols explode to allow new symbols to fall into the vacated spaces. Each avalanche then adds an extra row – with each row, the number of ways to win increases. Here’s how many ways to win you’ll play depending on the number of rows:

  • 4 rows = 4,096 ways to win
  • 5 rows = 15,625 ways to win
  • 6 rows = 46,656 ways to win
  • 7 rows = 117,649 ways to win
  • 8 rows = 262,144 ways to win

Big voodoo symbols

Voodoo Gold also benefits from big symbols – all symbol can appear in 1x2, super 2x2, mega 3x3 and epic 4x4 size. The big symbols are in their green voodoo state filling all empty spaces below with voodoo wilds. The big symbols will come into play and contribute to winning combinations once they reach the bottom.

Bomb feature

Bonus symbols can appear on any spin or symbol drop. A single bonus symbol will trigger the Bomb feature at the end of the avalanches. All active symbols within a diamond-shaped area around the bonus symbol (bar wilds and big voodoo symbols) will explode to allow new symbols to land. It will also add an extra row of symbols at the top increasing the number of ways to win. More bonus symbols will see the process repeated.

Dual Bonus feature

The Dual Bonus feature comes into play when 2 bonus symbols appear simultaneously – all symbols touched by the line between the bonus symbols (except wilds and big voodoo symbols) explode for more new symbols. Furthermore, all active instances of the touched symbols explode. It also allows for 1 more bonus symbol to land so you trigger the main bonus feature.

Free Drops Bonus Game feature

The Free Drops Bonus Game feature is played when you see 3 or more bonus symbols anywhere on the reels – 3, 4, 5 or 6 bonus symbols will reward you with 6, 9, 12 or 15 free spins respectively. All wilds that didn’t give you a win will become sticky wilds for the free spins too. Every winning combination adds an extra row of symbols which gives you more ways to win – the number of rows can only increase making it easier to play with the maximum 262,144 ways to win. You can also retrigger the feature giving you up to 30 free spins in total.

Highly volatile

Voodoo Gold may be the 3rd slot in the Gold series but it’s the best – visually, it’s brilliant. High variance, you can win up to 5,000 times your stake on each spin or free spin with 8 rows and 262,144 ways to win. The likelihood of winning big increases in the Free Drops Bonus Game feature due to the sticky wilds and big voodoo symbols of course. I also recommend you try Tahiti Gold and Ecuador Gold which is very good slots too.
