Black Gold Rush Slots

Black-Gold-RushBlack Gold Rush is one of about half a dozen titles already out there, which cover with their theme the Texan riches, which are mostly oil based. The oil tycoon topic seems to be a favorite for some developers, even though it doesn’t quite seem like players would be that crazy about it. There is no mistaking this slot for anything else, as you have an oil spewing rig in the background, plus a cigar smoking, hat wearing oil tycoon on one side.

You get 3 reels and only 1 line that you can use, but you also find wild symbols that have multipliers inside, so it’s not as simple as it might seem at first. The game offers $20,000 as its biggest prize.

Features of Black Gold Rush

The slot’s classic nature doesn’t stop it from offering a feature to its players, and it’s a pretty good one. It’s a wild symbol that also has a multiplier, so it’s very useful when it appears.

The Oil symbol which gets you the game’s biggest prize also can help you trigger other payouts, if you’re not lucky enough to get three of them on the payline. With one or two Oil drops on the reels, you can get the basis for a new combination, the rest of the positions being filled by regular symbols when that happens. The substitution powers of the wild allow it to bring you some extra money on a regular basis, plus it doubles any prize it contributes to.

Betting options and jackpots

The betting system is typical for this sort of slot machine, allowing for up to 3 coins to be selected for the wager. The coin’s value is also something that the player decides on, the range being $0.01 to $10. All things considered, you get to wager up to $30 for each spin.

The use of all three coins gets you the best prize, 2,000 coins awarded when that happens, and worth up to $20,000. Select just two coins, and the top prize drops to half, 1,000 coins, while one coin gets you 500 coins.

Design and symbols

The design would be at least OK for a modern game, but this is a classic slot, so my expectations are much lower. That means that it’s above average for a 3 reel title, all the symbols being themed around the slot’s topic and the quality being good enough. You get oil rigs in the background, the oil tycoon on the left side and the paytable and reels in the middle. The symbols are Texas, money or oil related.

Symbols: Oil Drops (2,000 coins, wild), Dollar Signs (300 coins), Classic Cars (150 coins), Texan Hats (75 coins), Oil Barrel (30 coins), Texas State (24 coins), Bar (12 coins) and Oil Rig (6 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

It’s not an unusual theme, but it doesn’t appear that often in classic slot machines, so it’s unique at least from that point of view. It also has some good features inside.

Black Gold Rush can be found at any Wager Gaming casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
