Free Golden Beauty slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Golden Beauty slot by Pragmatic Play surely can't be anything exciting, given their large inventory of oriental-themed games already in existence? Actually, that's not quite fair when considering they've made some pretty good ones including 5 Lions Gold which is very good on the eye, the entertaining if volatile Monkey Warrior and my personal favourite of them all, Caishen's Gold. The plain red reels sit over a couple of pagodas and we can guess the kind of music we have tinkling away in the background as we spin. So will this golden game prove to be a beauty for our bankroll?
We have 5 reels of 4 rows apiece and 75 pay lines on Golden Beauty slot which we can pay as little as 0.25 for. The symbols are stacked and therefore the 5-of-a-kind pays are not huge - based on a 75-coin bet they are 210 coins Empress, 90 Gold Pot or Brooch, 75 Gold Ruby or Comb, 60 Mandolin or Rose with five card values paying just 24 for a full line. Special Lotus Gold symbols can land stacked and when they do these will leave their positions surrounded by a gold frame. You play a 10-spin cycle then any gold frames positions will fill with a Wild symbol for hopefully a better pay on the following spin before the cycle begins again.
You need 3 or more Gold Pagoda scatters to trigger a choice of volatility. You can choose from 5 spins with 10 Wilds added to the grid which move between each free spin, 10 spins with 7 Wilds or 15 with 5 Wilds. 4 scatter triggers double those amounts of free spins, 5-scatter triggers triple them. You can retrigger which means you can take another choice when the existing free games are over. We are told this is high volatility slot.
Golden Beauty slot has a good RTP of 96.44% but not a lot else going for it. The 10-spin cycle is tedious as seldom do you get many Wilds and even if you did, a full screen only pays about 220x bet, yet they call the slot volatile! The potential is so low for me it's a waste of time playing it although it does look and sound okay. The free games will usually pay okay but with the hopeless line pays you'll never make a big cash-out here. This slot is one beauty that doesn't draw me to her...
