Giant's Gold Pokie
Giant’s Gold is a Colossal Reels pokie from WMS, with 100 paylines, a good payout percentage and transferring wilds.
This fairly popular video pokie is loosely based on a fairy tale about Jack and the beanstalk. And by loosely we mean loosely because in this case Jack has been replaced by a scantily clad girl who is climbing up the stalk into the clouds. The golden eggs, the farm, the beanstalk and the giant have remained.
The online version of Giant’s Gold has an excellent payout percentage of 96.21%. The variance is medium.
How Does the Giant’s Gold Pokie work?
This is a Colossal Reels pokie. All of these machines work the same way: there are two sets of reels (one small and one large), 100 paylines and the wilds play an essential role during the game.
This Giant’s Gold is also a true Colossal Reels slot in that respect - all solid ingredients are present.
The two sets of reels consist of a small set: 5 reels with 3 symbols and 20 paylines and the big one: this is 5 reels with 12 rows high and has 80 paylines. Added together they make, therefore, 100 fixed paylines.
You can play Giant’s Gold for as little as 0.50 dollars per spin. With this, you play for all 100 paylines. The maximum bet is 100 dollars per spin.
Symbols and Payouts
The wild symbol is stacked and replaces all symbols except the scatters. 5 wilds on an active payline are enough for 10 x the bet. Have you got a full screen with wilds? Then you win 1,000 x your bet. With the maximum bet of 100 dollars per spin, that means that you win 100,000 dollars.
The giant and the girl are also on the reels in mega stacks and are the highest paying symbols after the wilds. They pay 4 x and 5 x the total bet respectively for every 5-of-a-kind.
All other symbols (farm animals and card symbols J, Q, K and A) pay out 1 x to 3 x bets.
As soon as a full reel of wilds appears on the small playing field on the left, these wilds are thoroughly copied to the mega reels on the right. It can ensure very nice payouts, especially if multiple stacked wilds are copied to the colossal reels.
Free Spins Bonus: up to 100 Free Spins
As soon as at least 1 golden egg appears on three or more reels, you win the free spins bonus.
The more eggs you spin, the more free spins you get. You win a minimum of 5 free spins and a maximum of 100 free spins. For those 100 free spins, you need 40 or more golden eggs.
During the free spins, a multiplier is active on the colossal reels. The free spins can be retriggered.
Perhaps the best part of this free spins bonus is the rocking song that is started. It immediately brings you well into the winning mood.
What Does CasinoFisher Think of the Giant’s Gold pokie?
Giant’s Gold is a lovely, but not a super video pokie.
Graphically it all looks great, and the sounds and music fit perfectly with the fairy tale theme. The RTP of 96.21% is also excellent.
Yet we would like just some more excitement in the bonus rounds. It all stays just a little too tame, too good.
3 out of 5 stars.
