Liquid Gold Slots

Liquid-GoldIn theory, a theme that revolves around gold can be the basis for a great looking slot machine, but in practice Liquid Gold seems to have missed the mark. I’ll talk more about the design in the review below, but suffice it to say that it doesn’t come close to being even a decent looking slot machine. The gold theme has been a favorite for developers, but there are no other titles that use the liquid gold angle, so they had their chance of making a slot that is different from the competition. Unfortunately, they blew it. Let’s see how the rest of the game fares though.

You are going to find 20 lines on the 5 reels of Liquid Gold, while features include the wilds, scatters, multipliers and free spins. A $25,000 top jackpot is on the line, not quite as high as you might’ve imagined it to be in a slot themed around gold.

Features of Liquid Gold

The game does well enough in the feature section, but it’s no prize winning candidate here either. You have a simple wild, a scatter symbol, plus some free spins and a small multiplier to improve prizes. All in all, an average game in this regard.

Let’s look at the wild symbol first, since it’s also the one to give away the biggest prizes. The prizes it offers directly require the Liquid Gold Logo to appear on a minimum of two, and a maximum of five positions on an active line. The payouts will go up to 5,000x when this happens. When the wild doesn’t form its own regular combinations, it can still be of help by acting as a substitute. It has to be in the right position in order for something like that to happen though, so you’re not guaranteed a win.


The only other symbol to have an extra role is the scatter symbol. It’s marked Bonus, so it’s easy to recognize. A scatter symbol is capable of giving you its prizes and activating free spins, and all you need is for a minimum of three of them to be present at the same time. The usual requirement of forming a combo on a payline doesn’t apply to these symbols. Payouts go from 2x to 50x the total bet, depending on the number of symbols that triggered it.

Free Games Feature

You also have free spins in this game, and they also need the scatter symbol in order to start up. You get both the prizes I mentioned above, and the free spins, whenever 3 or more scatters are on the reels.


Your reward will consist in 10 free spins, plus 2x multipliers that double the prizes offered. These free spins can’t be retriggered though, which is another downside of the game, especially since none of the features is impressive enough to warrant such limitations.


Betting options and jackpots

You can place your bets on up to 20 lines, and each one will get anywhere between 1 and 10 coins. You decide both the number of lines and the number of coins. You also pick the denomination that will be used for the coins, the range being $0.01 to $0.50. The line bet reaches a top value of $5, with $100 being the total for all 20 lines.

The game mentions payouts of up to 5,000x, which means up to $25,000 when the line bet was at its maximum. You might get up to $50,000 from it though, as long as you win the jackpot during the free spins.

Design and symbols

The theme is based on liquid gold, and this is visible both in the symbols and in the background picture. The background shows you the inside of a vat filled with liquid gold, meaning that it’s hot enough to turn from metal to its liquid state. The symbols are also made out of gold, and while some of them look good, it’s the playing cards that manage to ruin the look in this case.


Symbols: Liquid Gold Logo (wild, 5,000x), Gold Cast (scatter, 50x the total wager), Bucket (2,000x), Six Gold Bars (1,500x), Three Gold Bars (1,250x), One Gold Bar (1,000x), Ace (150x), King (150x), Queen (100x), Jack (100x), Ten (75x) and Nine (75x).


Is It Worth Playing?

I don’t believe it is. The prizes might be decent, but they’re not great, while both the features and the design seem below average. I’d recommend you try one of the other gold themed slots available out there, quite a few of them do a better job.

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