It’s only been about a month since the last one, but the gameprovider Betsoft will be back this once more this summer with yet another release! This time you will get to saddle up your horse and ride out on a treasure hunt for gold and riches in the barren landscapes of the old, wild west. The name of the slot is Gold Canyon, featuring expanding wilds, exploding dynamite and unlimited amounts of free spins.
About the game
Gold Canyon is a 5 x 3 video slot with 20 paylines where the RTP is set to 96,13%. It’s a western themed slot, where the reels are placed next to a gold mine in the hills where the classical western landscape stretches out as far as the eye can see in the background. The design overall is quite simple, but everything is beautifully made and you will enjoy the fitting soundtrack while you’re playing.
The standard symbols will show as A, K, J and Q. Amongst the symbols of higher value we will find a gold nugget, a horse, a lantern, a sheriffs badge, a horseshoe, a royal flush and a wanted poster. The cowboy is the wild, which always expands over the reel it lands on. This symbol can occur on reel two to five, and substitutes for all symbols except for the scatter. The scatter in this case is the symbol with the dynamite, If you manage to land at least three of them in one single spin they will explode. This will make room for new symbols to drop down from the top of the reels and fill the empty positions, giving you a chance for even more winning combinations during the same spin.
So, at least 3 scatter symbols in one spin will, as mentioned above make the dynamite explode and make room for new symbols to fill the empty positions, but afterwards it will also trigger a round of free spins! How many free spins you will get to begin with depends on how many scatters that exploded. The number of free spins will be equal with the number of scatters you got. You will also get 1 extra spin for every new scatter that explodes while the free spins are in play, and you could collect a lot of extra spins this way.
After every winning spin during the basic game round, you will be offered to try your luck in the Double up game. You can choose to either bet half, or all of your winnings and play a round of flip a coin. You choose either heads or tails and if luck is on your side, you have easily doubled your stake in one single click.
Slots with this particular theme often become extremely popular amongst players, and we don’t see any reasons for why this should be any different. The gameplay is simple, and easy to understand without any flashy features but it is also a very nice and entertaining slot. The expanding wilds are without a doubt our favorite feature about the game, they do appear frequently and do offer the chance for some remarkable payouts if the luck is on your side. We got a good impression from this slot, and we bet you would as well. This game will be available in ScandiBets casino on the 23rd of July 2019, and who knows – maybe you will be the lucky one who uncovers the treasures of Gold Canyon?
