Giants Gold Online Slot Game Review
Giants Gold is an online video slot from WMS Gaming and is part of their colossal reel series. This means that the reel set up is quite unique where a main reel set features the standard five reel by four row setup but there is a second set of reels which is a five reel by twelve row setup. This unique colossal reel setup gives way to one hundred different pay lines each of which can have minimum of 0.01 bet placed.
Giants Gold is an online slot game with a host of bonus features including wild symbols; scatter symbols; up to one hundred free spins and even a progressive jackpot which may be awarded at any random moment throughout the game.
Giants Gold Theme and Reel Symbols
The theme of Giants Gold online slot game is a slightly different rendition of the classic fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk. The main difference between this slot game and the classic story is that Jack, the young male character, is not the featured character. This slot instead has a young and attractive maiden who features in place of Jack.
The images are graphically displayed in a cartoon style and feature not only the young maiden but also a variety of characters and items from the original Jack and the Beanstalk story. These include the giant; the beanstalk; the harp; the golden egg; a cow; a duck and more as the themed symbols while the standard high playing cards are featured on the reel sets too.
The Giants Gold Stacked Wild Symbols
The beanstalk symbols are the symbols that represent the Giants Gold wilds. These may appear stacked on the main reel set and when they do appear they may form winning combinations if they appear next to two matching symbols as they act as substitutes to assist in forming winning combinations. The only symbol that the wild will not substitute for is the scatter symbol.
When the wild symbols appear stacked on the main reel set they will move over to the corresponding reel on the second reel set. Once the second set of reels has transferred the stacked wilds any winning combinations are calculated and paid out accordingly.
Scatter Symbols and the Free Spins Bonus
The Giants Gold scatter symbols are the golden eggs which will only ever appear on reels one, three and five on both of the reel sets. It only takes three or more of the golden eggs to appear anywhere across both reel sets for the Giants Gold free spins bonus round to be activated. Five free spins are given for three golden eggs and an additional one free spins is awarded for every golden egg thereafter. If forty or more golden eggs appear on the reels, which is possible as there are eighty positions in total, a maximum of one hundred free spins will be awarded.
If any winning combinations land on the second reel set during the free spins bonus round the winning amount, which is paid according to the pay table, is multiplied by two.
