Bounty Gold, a recent release by Pragmatic Play, disappoints with its lackluster visuals and gameplay. The western-themed slot game has cartoonish outlaws and a base game that lacks excitement. The Money Respins feature stands as its saving grace, allowing players to unlock up to 4 reel sets – a rarity in the hold-and-win genre. However, even with this feature, the game doesn’t impress.
In the game, the wild symbol only appears on reels 2, 3, and 4, and substitutes for all regular pay symbols. The sole feature of the game is the Money Respins round. Players need at least 6 money symbols to trigger this round, which provides the chance to unlock up to 3 extra 5×3 grids.
By filling a grid with sticky money symbols, players can win jackpots, with the jackpot value increasing the more grids a player unlocks. Jackpots can range from 25x to 5,000x the stake, and players also benefit from multipliers of x2, x3, x4, or x5, depending on the grid and the number of money symbols they land.
Bounty Gold has a respectable Return to Player (RTP) average of 96.50%, paired with a high variance that makes the gameplay both exciting and frustrating.
For a minimum total bet of 0.25 to a maximum of 125.00, players can adjust their bet sizes, check their game history, and access a complete view of the game mechanics via the game’s interface. An autoplay option is, unfortunately, missing from this slot game.
The bag of gold money symbol brings an exciting twist to the game. With six of these symbols, players can unlock matrices that contain only money symbols and spaces. The total of all money symbols, plus any multipliers, are awarded at the end of the round.
While Bounty Gold offers a unique set of features and gameplay mechanics, it falls short in comparison to other games in the same genre. It’s a below-average, run-of-the-mill effort, and players might be better off looking for a more thrilling slot experience elsewhere.
