Black Gold Slots
Forget all the serious political, economical, and geographical issues that have often been tied with oil exploration and extraction, and instead just enjoy seeing Bill and his four-legged sidekick finally getting lucky after toiling hard and pouring sweat digging for the Black Gold. You just might strike it rich too.
Black Gold is a non-progressive, 5-reel, 30-payline 3D slot machine from Betsoft with a $5,000 (10,000 coins) maximum jackpot, making it your ideal means to becoming a big oil mogul. It is packed with familiar oil symbols and the highest paying one is Ol’Bill, which brings 2,000 coins at a maximum bet.
Typical of Betsoft, there are also cool animated symbols like an oil drop, no trespassing signs, an oil barrel, bull horns, and stacks of money beneath Ol’Bill’s 10-gallon hat. The features you find include a wild symbol, a scatter symbol, a bonus game, and an arcade mode. Free spins are also in plenty.
The amusing animations, impressive graphics, and background music that perfectly complement the non-serious epic tone of the oil-themed game blend nicely together to give you a fun and pleasurable slot experience. There is more music whenever you spin or hit a winning combo.
You’ll find Black Gold fast and exciting, and the nifty 2D graphics and 3D animations will only add to the exhilarating mood.
Betting Options Available
Ol’Bill knew how much to invest in order to grow his wealth and fortune, so you must think about your investment. You can start with a minimum bet of $0.02 per payline or opt for the maximum $0.50. If you activate all the 30 paylines at maximum coins and in each bet you are playing 5X coins, you are allowed to wager a maximum of $75 in each spin.
How to Play Black Gold
This is a slot you’ll love playing even if you’ve never seen an oil rig let alone work on it. You start by setting the paylines to play, the credit level, and bet per line. The next step is activating the reel spins by pressing “spin.”
Bonus Rounds on Black Gold
Black Gold gameplay has very cool bonuses, the two most popular being Nighttime Free Spins mode and Drilling for Oil feature. There is also a High-Low bonus round.
The Nighttime Free Spins mode is activated by the appearance of three or more barn symbols. During the free spins, the barn symbol becomes a wild, and so every win is multiplied. You can earn as much as 10x wild wins.
Drilling for Oil is an instant click-me-and-win bonus feature triggered by the appearance of three or more drill symbols. You select a drill on any reel with a “click me” feature on it and you get to collect oil credits spewed by the oil wells. Usually, you’ll get a number of clicks before you hit collect and the bonus round ends.
As for the high-low bonus game, the trigger is three or more oil pump symbols, and you have to guess whether the oil drilled next will be of a higher or lower amount than the current amount. Four hits or four misses end the game, and you could lose everything with a single miss.
The Black Gold story is interesting if you like tales about the earliest days of Texas oil. The rich history of the American South is intricately woven with the quest for black gold, a period in American history that has become romanticized. You can re-live the Gold Rush with Ol’Bill, who strikes it rich when he comes upon Black Gold.
