Winter Sports In Microgaming Online Slot

February 15, 2018

The Winter Olympics are not as popular as their summer counterparts so few people know that the 2018 Winter Olympics are taking place in Pyeong Chang in South Korea. There are comparatively much fewer online slots based on the Winter Olympics. Winter Gold from the portfolio of Microgaming is by far the best. It draws traffic from the dedicated group of winter sports lovers. Winter Gold is live at online casinos like Royal Vegas, All Slots and Jackpot City.

The reels are set in the perfect snowy environment for winter sports. The high paying symbols are the four most popular events at the Winter Olympics that include Biathlon, Speed Skating, Ski Jumping and Bob Sleigh. The graphics are bold and detailed but the win animations are simply awesome. It appears that you are watching a video clip of the sporting event. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons. The Winter Gold Logo is the wild symbol. The symbol also awards the highest line payouts. Five game logo symbols in an active payline award a payout of 5000 times the line bet. Winter Gold is expected to have high variance suited for players willing to take a bit of a risk.

The Gold medal, which the players in the Winter Olympics compete for, is the scatter symbol. Two or more scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. The payout for five scatter symbols is 400 coins. Three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels trigger the Bonus Wheel Feature.

The screen displays a Bonus Wheel that is divided into eight sections. The wheel is spun and you are awarded the prize in the section that is next to the indicator when the wheel comes to a stop. Two sections award up to 20 free spins and two sections award bonuses up to 18,000 coins. The remaining four sections award bonus games on the second screen, with each feature based on one of the four winter sports used as a symbol. Again the audio visual animation has different camera angles and appropriate audio to create an experience of watching the event live on television. In each event you pick one of the competing athletes or teams. The events are played out exactly as in the Winter Olympics and you are awarded bonus credits based on the performance of your players.

Winter Gold is a 15 selectable paylines video slot in the standard 5x3 format. The maximum total bet per spin is $60.
