SlotBeats had a blast playing Goldstruck Blasts!, the latest dynamite slot release from High 5 Games, which saw the return of the win-enhancing Wild Train mechanic to claim its Slot of the Week title.
Goldstruck Blasts uses a 6×6 reel set-up with 20-paylines and sees the return of the supplier’s Wild Train mechanic, offering a maximum jackpot prize of x5,000 the player’s bet. The game showcases several bonus features including free spins, progressive multipliers and wild train respins while using an RTP of 96 per cent.
Lauren Gazneli, Senior Director of Client Partner at High 5 Games, commented: “For the past four years, the wild train feature has been developed and refined across many High 5 Games casino titles, including our latest new release, Goldstruck Blasts.
“This feature adds huge value and excitement to the gaming experience by not only creating winning opportunities with wild symbols but also the chance to land free spins and the x5,000 jackpot.
“We’re thrilled to introduce players to Goldstruck Blasts, which launches with our partners this week. It’s our best Wild Train game yet!”
Low value symbols are represented by blue, orange, pink, green and purple gems, while lanterns, birds and miners depict the high value symbols, offering between x0.25 and x5 the player’s preferred bet.
Golden nugget wilds can also appear, bringing many of the game’s bonus features with them. As wilds, these golden nuggets will substitute for all symbols other than the drill and gold-filled minecart wild symbols.
When these drill and minecart symbols appear on the reels on the same spin as a golden nugget wild, the drill will travel around the reels, followed by the minecart symbols as a wild train, to pick up any golden nuggets on the board. This will trigger a free respin each time it collects all available nuggets.
The drill symbols will also travel towards each plunger scatter symbol that appears on the same spin. These plungers appear with monetary values ranging from x0.25 to x20 the player’s bet, which is applied to the player’s winning payout when collected by the drill and minecart symbols
Each time a golden nugget wild is collected by the drill, an extra minecart symbol will be added to the end of the wild train. The wild train will contribute to any potential paylines in between each free respin as it substitutes for all paytable symbols.
The total value collected by the wild train will be displayed in the top-right corner of the game screen. Collecting five, nine, 13, 17 or 21 plungers with the same wild train feature will apply x2, x3, x5, x10 or x21 multipliers to the total win value respectively.
Moreover, if players manage to collect nine or more golden nuggets from the same wild train feature, the free spins bonus game mode will be activated with five free spins awarded.
During the free spins, the wild train feature that triggered it will remain active while every golden nugget or plunger symbol that is collected will award an additional free spin each.
Furthermore, the game’s jackpot prize of x5,000 will be awarded to the player if they manage to collect over 21 golden nugget symbols using the same wild train and free spins feature.
