Goldbarz Slots

GoldbarzGoldbarz is one of the slot machines offered on IGT powered casinos, though it’s originally a NextGen title I believe. The game is themed around bank robberies, the inspiration coming from the gold bars that the safe crackers are supposedly after. There is a rather dated design unfortunately, plus a low number of paylines, so you get the idea quickly that it’s not going to be one of the more advanced titles you’ve ever played.

You’re only going to find 5 reels and 9 lines in this game, with features involving a bonus game, scatters and wilds with multipliers. As for the top prize mentioned by the slot, it’s worth $2,500.

Features of Goldbarz

All the features you will see in Goldbarz are normal for such a game, but that doesn’t make them less fun to take advantage of. A wild symbol is part of it, along with a scatter and a bonus game.

We have the Thief in the main role, a bearded fellow that acts as the wild element and which can substitute for other icons. It will double prizes it helps award, so if the wild is part of a combo it applies its multiplier. It can only do this from the centre reels, the 2nd, 3rd and 4th ones being the only ones that can get it. Thief wilds will not replace scatter symbols.

Scatter symbols can be incredibly fun and valuable, offering prizes as high as 100 times the bet value when you have of them present in the game, at the same time but in any random location.

Safe Cracker Bonus Game

The bonus game of Goldbarz gets triggered when a minimum of three Safe scatter symbols are part of the reels. At that time, you get access to the feature and you have a maximum of 10 chances to open the safe.


Each bonus round, you have five tries on the keypad, as you try to find two keys to be used on the safe. The faster you get the keys, the bigger the prize. The maximum amount you can win in this game is at 250x the bet.

Betting options and jackpots

You’re not going to spend a lot of money while playing this game. It only has 9 lines, and if that wasn’t enough, the stakes will go up to $0.40 only. When you add it all up, you get a maximum bet of $3.60 per spin.

The slot will offer rewards of up to 6,250 times the line bet, meaning that if you maximized the stake you can get up to $2,500 cash.

Design and symbols

The safe’s color is the one that dominates the design in Goldbarz. It will not be a game with lots of gold on the reels, like the title might suggest. Instead, the focus is on the color of the steel, the silver like quality being visible in pretty much all the symbols and in the background graphics.


Symbols: Thief (wild), Safe (scatter, 100x bet), Boss (6,250 coins), Bulldog (2,500 coins), Gold Bar (500 coins), Diamond (500 coins), Ace (200 coins), King (200 coins), Queen (125 coins), Jack (125 coins), 10 (100 coins) and 9 (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

I’m not blown away by this game, in any way. Though the prizes are at least decent, the graphics and the low number of lines don’t recommend it as a solid choice.

This Goldbarz slot is offered by all online casinos with IGT software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
