Paytable & Paylines

Black GoldMegaways™ video slot is about an oil tycoon and how he acquired his wealth through oil drilling. The backdrop is set in a place where oil drilling is performed. The main frame’s design is typically seen in Megaways™ games. 

10 regular symbols fill the reels. To start with, the low-paying symbols are the 9 to A royals, and the high-paying symbols are the oil lamp, helmet, bison, and tycoon. The latter is the most valuable symbol.

Below is the paytable of the game:

The tycoon pays 50x when 6 of these symbols appear on a payline.

The bison pays 7.5x when 6 of these symbols appear on a payline.

The helmet pays 1.75x when 6 of these symbols appear on a payline.

The oil lamp pays 1.5x when 6 of these symbols appear on a payline.

The card suit symbols (A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9 royals) pay between 1.25x to 0.6x when 6 of these symbols appear on a payline.

Game Features

You have to put so much effort, strategy, and energy into oil drilling. In playing Black Gold Megaways™, you only need time, some money, and determination to win big because its game features will do the rest.

To start with, there are Wild and Scatter symbols that are always present in many video slots. The dynamite bundle is the Wild (in the base game). Its appearance will substitute for all other symbols except the Scatter symbol. There is also a Multiplier Wild symbol. When a winning combination is made with this symbol, the resulting win will be multiplied by 2, 3, 5, or 10. Combinations of Multiplier Wild symbols multiply together. 

The golden oil rig tower is the Scatter symbol. 4 or more Scatters’ appearance gives 12 Free Spins. And each additional Scatter’s appearance gives 5 extra Free Spins. During this round, the win multiplier is set to x1 and increases with every cascading feature. Also, if 3 scatters appear during the bonus round, you’ll be rewarded 5 more spins. And 4 scatters give another 10 free spins.

There are reels at the top of the matrix, and they also spin 5 bonus feature symbols.

Multiplier2 multiplier Wilds appear randomly on the reels.

Random1 standard Wild is placed anywhere on the reels.

Stacked1 or 2 Wild stacks are added to reels 2, 3, 4, or 5.

Double-up — all wins, including cascade wins from that spin, are subject to an x2 multiplier.

Destroyer — this will only activate if no reel win takes place. If that happens, this feature removes all regular symbols from reels 1 to 6.

Finally, you can encounter the Gamble Feature. This will pop up after each win. If you opt to gamble, there’s a big chance to double your wins, or you’ll lose it. Pick the right card color. If you successfully do this, your current win will be doubled. If you successfully pick the right color for the next card, your win will be multiplied by 4. But you’ll lose your winnings when you pick the wrong color.

Conclusion & verdict

Black Gold Megaways™ is a video slot game that every amateur or veteran player can enjoy. Aside from the impressive animated cartoon graphics, its real magic lies in the game features, which I found to be the best part of the slot. All the bonuses made the entire gaming experience much more thrilling and enjoyable.
