Gushers Gold Slots

Gushers-GoldGushers Gold is an oil themed slot machine, but it’s more than just the oil that is the focus here. It’s about how rich the oil tycoons are and the kind of lifestyle they can afford. The mix of oil, gold and money makes up for a pretty nice experience, and it’s unique in the slot machine world. It’s no secret that oil tycoons are among the richest in the world, but this slot will give you a small glimpse into the kind of life you would be living if you were one of them. I found it an attractive slot machine, above average graphics being a big part of the reason.

You get the standard 20 bet lines in this 5 reel game from Rival. As for the features, they are pretty normal for this developer as well, the scatter symbols and the wild being both present, each one getting you something extra, like free spins, multipliers or an expanding quality. The bonus game is the final feature, with the top jackpot being the one that manages to disappoint, offering up to $2,500.

Features of Gushers Gold

The mix of features provided by Gushers Gold is typical for a Rival slot, the expanding wild making appearances, as does the scatter symbol, a bonus round, free spins and even multipliers.

The Oil Barrel is the wild symbol of Gushers Gold. Though you only get it on the reels 1, 3 and 5, it will expand on those reels and you can get its help from their positions, if there are paylines that would benefit from its presence. Since it can substitute for another symbol, the wild is a very useful feature, allowing for more winning combinations to be formed in the long run. It doesn’t help out the scatter in any way, but that’s normal for a wild.


Free Games Feature

The blonde beauty queen is the scatter symbol, and a gold digger if I understand the association with the oil tycoon man correctly. As the scatter symbol, the beauty queen can give you access to free spins without being on the same payline. 3 scatter symbols triggers 5 spins, while 4 will get you 10 spins and 5 will trigger 20 spins. There is a x3 multiplier for all wins obtained during these free spins.

Bonus Game

The bonus round is triggered by another scatter symbol. You need 3+ symbols on the screen, in any position. Once this happens, the bonus game loads and you have a few choices to make.


The first one would be the oil rig you want to use. Next, you select the depth at which you will find the oil. Then you click on Reveal and the oil rig drills and finds oil, giving you a prize for it.

The Oil Pump Jackpot is a meter that fills out with oil and when you reach the top, you get an additional prize.

Betting options and jackpots

You start out with the value of the coins you want to use. You can select up to 10 of them per line, so pick a value that you’re comfortable with, the range being $0.01 to $0.25. With $2.50 line bets possible, the total reaches $50.

You might be taking home 1,000 times the line bet, but that’s only $2,500 in the best case scenario, hardly the stuff that dreams are made of.

Design and symbols

The Texas tycoon theme brings along a lot of luxury related items, from expensive cigars, to cars with bull horns on them, oil rigs, or gold plated safety helmets. The design and its use of black oil, mixed with gold and the yellow/orange color of the desert, looks very good, and it was a pleasure to play the game. It looks like a modern game, and it is easy to enjoy. The reels are surrounded by pipes and by black oil blobs.

Symbols: Oil Barrel (wild), Beauty Queen (scatter), Oil Tycoon (1,000x), Texan Car (500x), Oil Rig (300x), Cuban Cigars (250x), Oil Drill (175x), Stacks of Cash (100x), Gold Helmet (80x), Aluminum Bottle (60x) and Deed (40x).


Is It Worth Playing?

The money related theme is fun enough, as are the various oil related symbols or the beauty queen that makes an appearance, but the slot doesn’t confirm when it comes to the big payout, offering way too little for this kind of theme.

The Gushers Gold slot machine is offered through the Rival platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
