Black Gold 2 Megaways slot by StakeLogic continues with their oil theme begun by the first Black Gold Megaways slot. We have twangy banjo style music to listen to with a Texan oil field behind the reels and symbols to fit. From Microgaming's Rich Geyser slot right through to Betsoft's Black Gold slot (yes, same name!) the potential riches of striking oil have been used to tempt us slot players. So can we fill a few barrels for our bankroll here or will we hit a dry well?
On The Reels...
There are 6 reels of 2 to 7 rows each with a 4-symbol line above the centre 4 columns on Black Gold 2 Megaways slot thus 324-117,649 ways. There is actually another '8th reel' above the 4-symbol one containing the base game's modifiers but we will discuss those later. Symbols are stacked and single with winning tiles replaced from above in tumbles. The 6-of-a-kind pays are Oilman 50x bet, Donkey 7.5x, Helmet 1.75x, Lamp 1.5x with six card values from 1.25 down to 0.75x for a full way. Dynamite Wilds can appear on the scrolling reel and Oil Derricks are the free spins scatter here which appear on all reels, as do the Cash Bags for our newly added second Gold Rush feature!
There are 7 of these and the type you'll get is what lands on the top 8th reel:
Random - a random number of Wilds are added to reels 2-6.
Multiplier - 2 multiplier Wilds are added to any reel from 2 to 5. There can be from 2 to 10x.
Mystery - 3+ mystery symbols revealing the same are added to reels 2-5.
Stacked - one or two stacked Wilds are added to reel 2 to 5.
Destroyer - on a losing spin or end of a cascade series, all tiles are destroyed and replaced by new ones.
Free Spins - you trigger 4-scatter for this bonus.
Gold - you trigger 4-scatters for the Gold Rush bonus.
These are the common Bonanza formula on Black Gold Megaways slot with 12 for 4 gold Oil Derrick scatters and 5 extra spins for each above the 4. You get 5 or 10 extra spins if seeing 3 or 4 respectively on the upper 4-symbol reel. The 8th reel modifiers are more frequent plus you get a 1x increasing multiplier for each winning tumble. You can also select 5 spins beginning at 10x multiplier, 8 at 5x or a random choice by the game.
Having landed 4 Cash Bag scatters, the grid will retain its rows in play with the triggering positions converted to times stake multiplier. You get 3 re-spins which reset each time another Cash Bag lands. On the 8th reel you get modifiers:
Adder - adds 1-5x more to all symbols on 1-6 of the reels.
Multiplier - multiplies values on 1-6 reels by 2, 5 or 10x.
Expander - will expand the rows on 1-6 reels by one position.
Collector - one collector symbol randomly placed on reels 1-6 which collects all values in view as its stake multiplier.
Gold - adds 1 Cash Bag to all 6 reels.
Extra Spin - gives you from now-on 4 lives instead of 3.
Lucky Streak - the 8th reel modifiers are far more likely to land, nearly every re-spin.
Black Gold 2 Megaways slot is rare as it improves upon the original version which it's based on. Not childish, nor with annoying music it has decent sounds and animations, with the 8th reel modifiers usually pretty useful. The RTP is a reasonable enough 96.01% with the Gold Rush feature, although nothing original if you've seen Money train 2 slot, making a great addition to the formula. The free spins haven't changed but you can choose the volatility if you like a challenge and are a bit braver, and players do like the increasing multiplier mechanic. I prefer this to the original and so might you if you strike it lucky in these oilfields...
