Wings Of Gold Slot Machine
Take to the skies with this aviation themed slot machine by Playtech. Wings of Gold has 5 reels, upon which a number of different fighter jets will barrel roll into position, potentially creating winning sequences along the game’s 20 paylines.
Helping to keep players in the air are a couple of special gameplay features, such as a wild symbol and a scatter icon which could award up to 100 free fames. Plus, players can activate a special “Xtra Win” feature at any time to apply some extra thrust to the engines and increase the game’s overall payout.
Aim for the sky
Ever wanted to fly some fighter jets high up in the sky? Well, this slot machine might not let you do exactly that, but it will give you some of the same adrenaline-fuelled excitement as flying through the clouds. And who knows, if you spin this game in the right way then you might be able to splash out on some flying lessons!
Before then, however, you’ll just have to make do with Wings of Gold, a slot machine which is set way up high in the sky, giving a pilot’s perspective of the world below. The reels generic playing card symbols – 9, 10, J, Q, K and A – are presented as slabs of aircraft metal in the same iconic gunmetal grey as traditional fighter jets while the slot machine plays the sound of rushing air to place spinners in the thick of the action. Also on the reels, players will spot a few beautiful airplanes; one classic spitfire model, a slightly more heavy-weight bomber and a modern F-16 style fighter jet. Flying these beautiful flying specimens are a couple of cool characters – a handsome pilot with the trademark moustache and his hot red-headed co-pilot.
Start your engines and place your wagers
Learning to fly might be a bit tricky, but learning to spin this slot machine is a walk in the park. All punters have to do is determine two variable factors; how many of the 20 possible paylines to play with and how much of a wager to place on each active line. There are actually only three wagers possible – 0.20, 1.00 and 5.00 credits – making you decision-making even easier. However, this does mean that there aren’t as many different betting permutations as some other slot machines out there.
There is a scatter symbol which will award a total bet multiplier when three or more appear in any reel position. In fact, three of these “Wings of Gold” logos will multiply all of the bets by 4x, four will multiply the total stakes by 20x and five will award a 100x total bet prize.
So, with a top line bet of 5 credits, pilots of this slot machine can hope to find a 25,000 jackpot during the base game.
Wins of gold
Wings of Gold features a couple of special gameplay features to help players send their betting balances sky high. Firstly, there is the pilot icon who acts as the game’s wild symbol, appearing on the second, third and fourth reels to complete line wins.
The only icon that the wild pilot won’t substitute for is the “Wings of Gold” scatter. This icon will initiate a special bonus game whenever three or more appear in any position on the reels, allowing players to choose a “Medal of Honour” from the three presented on the screen. The chosen medal will then appear a random number of times upon special reels to award a set of free spins. The more times that the selected medal appears, the more free games that will be won with anywhere between 15 and 100 free spins up for grabs.
What’s more, during this feature the pilot wild icon will double all wins and expand to cover more reel positions.
Xtra Win mode
If you like the sound of those expanding wilds, then you can activate them in the slot machine’s base game by toggling the Xtra Win gameplay mode. This is essentially like putting a plane into full throttle since it will improve the overall winning performance of the slot by adding expanding wilds to the normal game. However, this will come at a cost because Xtra Win mode can only be played with all 20 payline with 50% of the original total bet placed as an additional wager.
Take to the skies
If your looking for some slot machine thrills, then you won’t go too wrong with this adrenaline-filled slot machine by Playtech. The game takes place high up in the sky and it gives players the opportunity to send their winnings up there too with 100 free games and expanding wilds that will double wins.
