The Ace-High Gang is riding again, ready to raid the reels of the western-themed slot from Play’n GO. The three gunslingers are the main characters on a fast-paced game with no less than seven high-frequency bonus features, randomly selected by a colt’s cylinder. Get in on the reel heist and you could walk away with a reward of up to 2,500 times your bet.
Golden Colts is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 40 fixed pay lines. You can ride with the gang on mobile or desktop from 0.20 to 100 credits. The RTP of this medium variance game is set at 96.55%. The Autoplay function lets you set 10 to 100 consecutive spins without interruption.
Set in a Western town around the turn of the 20th century when electrical power started to become widespread, the reels are populated by the three gang members and the local sheriff. Dark clouds and lightning strikes create an eerie atmosphere that is emphasized by a suspenseful soundtrack.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from 9 through to A, followed by the female gunslinger, the poker player, the male gunslinger and the possessed sheriff. The wild symbols is a longhorn bull skull. Pays for a single five of a kind range from 1x to12,5x your stake. The scatter is a metallic skull with blue-lit eyes.
Play’n GO fans might be in for a deja-vu moment has the bonus games seem to replicate those from the older Play’n GO creation Wild North. The frequency of the features is also similar and should hit on average once in 50 spins. Scatters on reel one, three and five will trigger the bonus game selector in the form of a colt cylinder. A total of seven bonus games are available with one being selected randomly on each trigger.
Well, our verdict might be predictable for some at this point. The game is a straight clone of Wild North and in our view with worse graphics. It was released exclusively at Mr Green towards the end of 2018 and should be available network-wide from the end of February 2019. Since we are not big fans of clones, our verdict is not that superb either.
The game is not too bad as the high feature frequency keeps things interesting and hitting a few in a row can lead to a good balance booster. However, the top win of 2,500x the stake is incredibly hard to hit as it would need the Gunslingers feature to reveal an x30 multiplier and then a screen with high-value pay symbols to achieve that.
