Go Back in Time with Gold Rush
Slot machines have come a long way since they first hit the scene in the late 1800s. The “Liberty Bell” machines that became popular at the turn of the century had just three reels and one payline. Bonus rounds? Skill-based features? Video? All that stuff took another 100 years or so to develop.
It’s wonderful to have all that technology at our fingertips now, but every once in a while, it’s good to take a step back in time and do things the old-fashioned way. Gold Rush is one of the simplest slots you’ll find at Bodog Casino; three reels, one payline, no fuss, no muss. This 1840s prospector-themed game has only six symbols to keep track of, and that includes the familiar single-bar, double-bar and triple-bar symbols. You’ll also find bags of money, gold pans, and the star of the show: the Cowboy.
The Cowboy is definitely the guy you want to see most often. When you reveal three Cowboys, you win the top prize that Gold Rush has to offer. That’s a 100X payout if you bet 1 coin, 200X if you bet 2 coins, and the big 400X jackpot if you place the maximum bet of 3 coins. You get your best rate of return when you bet three coins, so make sure to mash the Bet Max button when you play Gold Rush. You can control the size of the “coin” in question, from as low as one penny to as high as $10.
Not only does the Cowboy trigger the jackpot, he also acts as a Wild symbol that can stand in for any other symbol in Gold Rush. If you complete a winning payline with one Cowboy, your prize is doubled. Use two Cowboys, and your payout is multiplied by four. Talk about hitting the motherlode. Gold Rush even awards prizes for lining up any three of the different bar symbols, or just two of the moneybags.
This classic game might be simpler than most, but Gold Rush still gives you the same player controls for speed, screen size and audio that you get with newer slots at Bodog Casino. You can also use the Practice Play mode to give Gold Rush a spin for free. It won’t take you long to get the hang of it.
