It also benefits from avalanche wins, allowing you to form multiple wins from a single spin! Want to know more about this ELK Studios slot and its features? You're in the right place! Below, we explore Black River Gold slot in more detail.
Just like the previous slots in the series, Black River Gold slot is simple to play. The action takes place across six reels and four rows, which can expand through the avalanche mechanic to offer more ways to win. When fully expanded, you can enjoy a grand total of 262,144 ways to win. There are no paylines here, so the symbols can land in any position on the grid and form a win – all you need to do is land three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels from left to right. The winning symbols then disappear from the grid and new ones drop into place, giving you another chance to score a win.
So, how do you play Black River Gold slot? First things first, you need to set your wager. This can be done by hitting the 'Bet Options' button in the bottom left corner of the screen and selecting a wager. Once that's done, you're all set! All that's left to do is hit spin.
If you've played previous slots in the Gold series, the features in this game will be familiar to you. ELK Studios have kept things pretty much the same – and we don't blame them! After all, if something works, why change it?
The big symbols make another appearance, landing on the grid in clusters. However, this time around, if a big symbol has a space beneath it, it transforms into a gun cylinder symbol. Known as the Revolver feature, when this symbol appears, the symbols underneath it are loaded up to make the gun a big version of the icons it's holding. If all six of the bullet spaces are taken, the gun transforms into a big Wild symbol.
Next up we've got the Compass feature. When this symbol lands, matching symbols across it turn Wild. If the compass reaches the bottom row, it also becomes Wild. These symbols then perform the typical Wild duties, substituting for any of the regular symbols to help form a win.
Saving the best until last, you've also got the Bonus Game. This is triggered by landing three to six Scatter symbols anywhere on the grid, which will award you with between 10 and 25 Free Spins. During this game, something known as the 'Safety Level' comes into play, causing each win to add another row to the grid. Unlike in the base game, the additional rows don't revert back to four rows on new spins; instead, they remain in place for the duration of the Bonus Game.
If you've played ELK Studios’ slots before, Black River Gold's awesome visuals will come as no surprise. The game is set in the heart of North America, where you'll see a towering mountain range in the background.
The reels themselves are set in a wooden frame and contain a host of theme-fitting imagery. The low payers are represented by stylised J-A royals, and the more valuable icons are the gold nugget, emerald, diamond and Kane himself. As you'd expect, Kane is the most rewarding symbol of the bunch, paying three coins for a six-of-a-kind combo. You've also got the Wild and Bonus symbol, which have the words clearly written on them in a wild west style.
