Black Gold Megaways Theme/Symbols

The wild American West is the setting for Black Gold Megaways. Set against a canyon backdrop and flanked by cactus plants, the reels are made up of A to 9 royals as well as a miner’s lamp, a helmet and a raging bull. The oil tycoon is the top standard symbol. This pays 50 times your stake if you land 6 on adjoining reels. The game has an RTP of 96.039%.

Cascading wins - up to 117,649 ways to win

The Cascading Reels feature is used here. On each of the reels, you’ll see between 2 and 7 symbols. This number changes with each spin. The number of Megaways in play ranges from between 324 right up to a massive 117,649. Land a winning combination and those symbols are removed and new ones drop in and replace them. The cascades continue as long as a new winning combination is formed.

5 random bonus features

Land a special Bonus Feature symbol in the top reel window at the top of the screen and you’ll activate a modifier extra. Valves below the reels open up and spit oil onto the reels. Any reel that’s covered in oil will benefit from the extra:

  • Random feature - random wilds are added to reels 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6.
  • Multiplier feature - 2 multiplier wilds, of 2x, 3x, 5x or 10x, are added to reels 2, 3, 4 or 5. Land winner including more than 1 multiplier wild and their values are combined.
  • DoubleUp feature - all reel wins are doubled, including any cascade wins that follow.
  • Stacked feature – 1 or 2 stacked wilds are added to reels 2, 3, 4 or 5.
  • Destroyer feature - all the symbols are removed from the reels and a new cascade follows.

Free Spins feature

Land 4 scatter symbols on the same spin and you’ll receive 12 free spins in the Free Spins feature. Each extra scatter on the triggering spin adds another 5 free spins to that total. The cascading reels are in play during the free spins round. Each cascade win increases a multiplier by 1x. Land 3 or 4 scatters to add another 5 or 10 free spins to your tally. There’s no limit to the number of free spins and how high the multiplier can go!

Entertaining Megaways action

The Black Gold Megaways slot is nicely done. The cartoon visuals are well put together and the modifiers deliver plenty of action in the base game. The dynamic multiplier makes the Free Spins feature well worth hitting too as this can lead to top payouts of 14,400 times your stake on each free spin.

This is one of Stakelogic’s better slots. If you’ve enjoyed other Megaways slots, then Black Gold Megaways is one to add to the list.
