Golden Era by Microgaming is a simple video slot which revolves around the Golden Age of film. However, for a slot with this theme, the animations and background music are a bit weak and not very inspirational. Still, many people like playing this game. Its popularity has partly to do with the fact that it’s a simple slot as that enables players to relax while playing. The highlight of the game is unlocking the bonus game. Namely, when this happens, you get to choose whether you want the bonus game or free spins with a special feature.
How to play Golden Era?
Some slots look simple but will prove capable of surprising you every once and again once you start playing. Golden Era isn’t one of those game: it looks simple and it is simple. With its five reels and three rows, it is easy to keep a clear overview. Additionally, in spite of the fact that there aren’t any standard symbols, it still is easy to keep track of what it going on on your playing grid. The animation that says Golden Era Scatter, of course, functions as the scatter. This scatter will lead to the bonus. The wild symbol -the Golden Era symbol- can substitute for any other symbol except the scatter.
Bonus game on Golden Era
When the scatter lands on your reels three times, you have to decide whether you want to play the bonus game or whether you would like some free spins. If you go for the bonus game, you will be brought to a wall that’s full of posters. You pick one of the film posters and the reaction of the audience determines your prize. You might win money or multipliers. However, if the audience starts booing and throwing rotten tomatoes, the bonus game ends and you will resume with regular spins. This bonus game could prove very lucrative but you can also be sent off empty-handed.
Free spins on Golden Era
Golden Era also gives you the possibility to play free spins. And what’s special about these free spins is that they are accompanied by a special feature. The animation on the first and fifth reel are completely wild. Subsequently, they move towards each other until they meet on the middle reel. When this happens and they’re part of a winning combination, the win will be doubled. If the wild is alone on a reel, then there is no multiplier involved with the win. If you want to play free spins hoping to win additional free spins, you might not want to play Golden Era, as you cannot.
