Gold Lab is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot which is brought to you by Quickspin. Available to play on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, it’s a bright and fun-filled game which features a scientist in his quest to make gold. You can play from as little as 10p to as much as £100 per spin.
It uses cartoon graphics which are a little quirky – symbols on the reels include 4 different coloured beakers as well as 5 different coloured precious gemstones. The highest value symbol is the yellow wild symbol which rewards you with 8 times your stake when you get 5 on a payline.
Gold Lab is all about the Golden Bonus feature which is played when you get the Golden Bonus scatter symbol simultaneously on reels 1, 3 and 5. Look out for the Beaker Meter to the right of the reel set – each of the 4 beaker symbols have a corresponding Golden Bonus scatter symbol by the way! Anyway, this will reward you with 4 respins.
Once in, all corresponding Beaker symbols on the reels will transform into wild symbol for the duration of the 4 respins. If you get 1 or more Golden Bonus scatter symbol during a respin, it will make corresponding Beaker symbols wild and increase the free spins tally by 1.
In effect, the Golden Bonus feature turns ordinary low value symbols into wilds for your 4 or more respins. Gold Lab may sound complicated but it’s pretty straight forward once you get going. It’s all about the feature though which triggers fairly frequently.
I found Gold Lab to be a medium to high variance slot game with a maximum of 413 times your stake to be won on every single respin – your chances increase in the feature though due to the possibility of getting lots of wild symbols. Saying that, you will normally win between 10 and 20 times your stake in the feature so patience is required. I recommend you try my favourite Quickspin game, Spinions Beach Party, which is excellent in so many ways.
