Gusher Slots

GusherGusher is the attempt that WMS makes to create a slot machine with a theme inspired by oil drilling. It’s not the only one, there are already a couple of them out there, and they all seem to have the same type of symbols, which along the oil rigs also offer you the Texan men, their Cadillac cars and stacks of cash to show how profitable the entire thing can be.

With 30 paylines, Gusher has a below average number of paylines, at least for this slot developer. There are wild symbols, scatters and free spins to be had inside, while the biggest prize is going to give you $10,000.

Features of Gusher

The Oil Drill symbol gets to act as the wild feature, while the Texan Man is the scatter and the one that brings you the free spins.

One thing to know about the game’s wild is that it’s limited to appearances on three reels, out of the five the game has. You will see it on the reels 2, 3 and 4. All symbols can be replaced with a wild, even the scatter symbol. Being only on three reels, wild Oil Drill symbols do not create combinations directly.

The Texan Man would be the one that can get you paid, as long as enough scatter symbols of this type are on the reels. The symbols also give you the free spins, but in both cases you need them to appear from the left to the right, on adjacent reels. The prizes it offers start at 2x the bet, and reach a top value of 50x the total bet.

Free Games Feature

You need the same 3+ scatters to get 7 free spins from the slot. Oil Drill wilds expand on the reels on which they appear, and they can even take the place of scatters. Whenever a wild makes an appearance, the reel becomes wild and is sticky for the remaining free spins. A wild is counted as a single scatter, even though it occupies three positions on the reel.


Betting options and jackpots

Those that want to cover the 30 lines of the slot can do so with 30 coins, no more, no less. The coins are worth between $0.01 and $5, which means that the line bet is worth the same and that the maximum wager is $150.

The slot will pay up to 2,000 coins, and if the largest coins were used, the prize would have a top value of $10,000.

Design and symbols

The slot has a clean design, with plenty of white space between the symbols, the reels being quite simple and with thin black borders between them. The background image shows you a beautiful view from the vicinity of some mountains, but in a place where oil drills have arrived and are working. The symbols are 100% themed, though some focus on the actual oil drilling, while others on the money that it can make you.


Symbols: Oil Drill (wild), Texan Man (50x the bet, scatter), Diamond Ring (2,000 coins), Stacks of Cash (500 coins), Cadillac (500 coins), Oil Rig (100 coins), Oil Barrel (100 coins), Glove (100 coins), Hammer (100 coins) and Pipe Wrench Spanner (100 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

The game is not original enough to be an absolute must play, but if you’re interested in the theme and the oil connection, then it will be a good choice.

You will find Gusher at any online casino which chooses to use software from WMS, playable either for free or for real money.
