Golden Man Slots

Golden-ManGolden Man is a Rival Gaming slot machine, with a theme that seems to be 90% inspired by the Iron Man series, though obviously the main hero is called Golden Man now. It might be their way of creating a game based on a popular series, without actually getting the license for it, but it still sort of makes for an interesting title. The main character, Golden Man, wears a gold and red suit that resembles the Iron Man armor, with the power source from his chest being red here, instead of blue. You have your good guys, the girl, a bad guy wearing a gold Pinocchio like mask, weapons, and a lot of gold being used in the design.

Golden Man gets 5 reels and as many as 20 paylines to activate on them. Rival has used expanding wilds, free spins, scatters, multipliers and even a bonus game, to get you interested, especially with the top jackpot being worth only $1,250.

Features of Golden Man

Among the symbols that are part of Golden Man, you will discover some that are special, bringing along features that will make the game fun to play, and profitable as well. You get expanding wilds in this case, scatter symbols, free spins and multipliers, plus a bonus round.

The expanding wild would normally be a great addition to a game like this, but you get it only on the 1st reel while in base game mode. When it does appear there, the wild expands to cover the entire reel, so you always get three wilds if that helps you create a new combination. The image representing this wild is that of a golden missile. The reel it does appear on is the best one it could get, as it pretty much guarantees you that you will get help from the wild if you have the rest of the necessary symbols on one of the paylines. There are no prizes offered by the wild in this case.

Free Games Feature

Golden Man is present in a few different situations in the game, one of the symbols showing him being used as a scatter that gets to trigger free spins. Get three symbols where Golden Man is showing his hand, and that will get you 15 free spins and a x2 multiplier.

The location of the scatter symbols doesn’t matter, only that you get three or more in whatever positions they happen to be in. For the duration of these free spins, you have expanding wilds on the first three reels (1 to 3), not just on the first one.

Bonus Game

Flying Golden Man is the symbol used for the bonus game. Once again, this is a scatter symbol and its position doesn’t matter. 3+ symbols with him will get you the bonus game.

The bonus game asks you to shoot at some incoming missiles, each target you destroy bringing along a prize.

Betting options and jackpots

The betting system seems to be the standard one, Rival using it in quite a few of its 20 line games. Each one gets a maximum of 10 coins when the bet is made, at $0.25 being the maximum denomination allowed. The $2.50 line bet that results from it turns into a $50 total bet, with all 20 lines covered. The smallest denomination is jus t$0.01, and you can also reduce the number of coins or lines, so you can modify it as you see fit.

In exchange for your hard earned money, the game offers only up to 500x the line bet. It’s a very low amount, many slots going to 5,000x or 10,000x, with the cash value being up to $1,250. It might go to $2,500 during the free spins, but it’s still a low amount.

Design and symbols

The theme is interesting enough, but the actual design is far from being as good looking as a real Iron Man game. The quality of the faces drawn on the character is not good enough, but that’s just one thing that will bother you. There is way too much gold in the design, both in the surrounding graphics and in the symbols. The second most used color is red, though it doesn’t come close to the amount of gold you will find. I haven’t enjoyed looking at its design that much, but if you’re curious about this Golden Man superhero, it will not be an entirely unpleasant experience.

Symbols: Golden Man Close-up (500x), Missile (wild), Golden Man Hand (scatter), Flying Golden Man (bonus), Masked Villain (300x), Blonde Man (250x), Brunette Lady (200x), Weapons (125x), Golden Man Making Fist (100x), Suit Power Source (75x), Gold Bars (60x) and Atomic Logo (60x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It looks and feels like the poor man’s Iron Man. I suggest you go for the real thing, there are better looking slots out there with the Iron Man theme, and they pay a lot better as well. With top payouts of $1,250 and low quality graphics, this slot really doesn’t seem like a good idea.

Golden Man can be found at any Rival casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
