Texas has always been known for its oil rigs which are what inspired StakeLogic’s release of Black Gold Megaways, a very interesting game added to the Megaways slot list. It is a 6 reel slot with an amazing 117, 649 ways to land a winning combination. Players should expect to see cascading reels and other great features, resulting in pretty amazing payouts.
The game definitely has an unusual theme, but just the thought of the money that is in the oil industry is baffling. That is probably why the providers chose the theme in the first place. They managed to turn it into an interesting game with a cartoon-like design that is definitely going to appeal to many players.
In the background are, of course, the rocky desert and an oil rig. There are also cactuses to decorate the picture along with an iguana and a vulture. They also are there to represent Texas which is known for its oil rigs. The soundtrack is country music with banjo sounds and construction work from the platform which contributes to the countryside vibe.
The symbols are very well-designed and are what makes the game so interesting. They include the regular colorful royals, helmets, lanterns, a bison, and billionaires. An oil rig represents the scatter symbol and dynamite as the wild symbol. They are all classic sightings form an oil platform with a fun cartoon-like design.
With the number of wins that changes on every spin and the cascading reels the payouts are bound to be good. They are not frequent, but when they happen, they strike big. Players can win up to 14,400x the stake in a single spin. The minimum a player can bet is 0,20 and the maximum is 20 coins per spin. This is a medium volatility game that goes quite well in combination with the RTP which is set at the regular 96,03%.
The features are going to amaze even more than the design. The first awesome and generous thing about the game is that adds wilds at random to the reels. They can either appear along with a multiplier of up to x10 or fill an entire reel to create a huge win.
The center of attention is the special reel at the very top since it is not something seen often. It can carry one of 5 different bonus features. The Multiplier feature adds to multiplier wilds at random to the reels. Then there is the Random feature that adds one wild anywhere to the reels. Next comes the Stacked feature that adds one or two wild stacks to the last 4 reels and the Double Up feature that applies a multiplier to all the wins from a spin.
Last but not least, is the Destroyer feature that can only be triggered if a winning combination has not occurred. It removes all the low paying symbols from the reels allowing new ones to cascade down hopefully landing the player a win. The game also has a Free Spins feature that is triggered when the player lands at least 4scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. The player then gets 12 free spins and an additional 5 for every scatter part of the triggering combination. The round offers a multiplier that starts at x2 and increases every time a cascade win happens.
The game has impressed, to say the least. The theme is not common which is great because it does not happen that often that something new to see gets released. The designers did a great job with the design of the characters and the overall design of the game. The best part is the features that are very interesting and rewarding. This trip to Texas is definitely going to be fun.
