Gaze of Gold slot REVIEW

Gaze of Gold ReviewMost people have heard about Medusa, but not everyone knows that she was only 1 of 3 so-called Gorgons. These female creatures had hair made of snakes, and they were so terrifying to look at that people were instantly turned to stone. Gaze of Gold is a visually pleasing installment from iSoftBet, and winning symbols turn to stone for a streak respins session when the Gorgon's Gaze feature triggers in the base game.

The visual effects are excellent in this game, and the soundtrack fits the bill as well. You get to gaze deep into the eyes of Medusa when the features trigger, and the Mega Hold&Win bonus round comes with a grid that can expand to 7x11 in size. This happens randomly, and you get help from 2 different booster symbols as well. The 15,000x potential is hard to complain about, and Gaze of Gold is a pretty solid effort that’s well worth a closer look.

Gaze of Gold Slot Features

You can turn on the Golden Bet between base game spins, and it will cost you 50 % more per spin to keep it on. The benefit is that your bonus round chances are increased, and the RTP increases to 96.14 % as well. The symbols pay the same either way though, and the high value symbols award between 7.5 and 25 x your stake for 5 of a kind wins. The snake-like eye symbol is the Wild, and it steps in for pay symbols to help complete and/or improve line wins.

The Gorgon's Gaze Modifier will trigger at random times in the base game, and it turns all winning symbols, as well as golden shield scatters, into stone. The stone symbols are locked in place as the remaining positions respin, and you get a new respin as long as you improve upon the win or land new scatters. Your total win is paid as the feature ends, and landing enough scatters can also trigger the Mega Hold&Win bonus round.

The Mega Hold&Win Bonus Round triggers when at least 5 golden shield scatters are in view, and the triggering shields reveal a cash prize value between 1x and 50x your stake. You start with a 5x3 sized grid and 3 respins, and only blanks, golden shield cash symbols, or booster symbols will appear during this feature.

Each time you land a non-blank symbol the respins tally resets to 3, and the Expand modifier can trigger randomly up to multiple times during the feature. It will remove blocker tiles to expand the grid, and it can grow as large as 7x11 positions. Each Expand modifier expands the grid by either 2 columns, 2 rows, or 1 column and 1 row.

You can land either the Multiply Booster or the Collect Booster on any given Hold&Win respin, but not both at the same time. The Multiply Booster boosts all cash prize shields in view by x2, while the Collect Booster absorbs all cash prize values onto itself. Your total win is summed up and paid when you run out of respins.

The Bonus Buy feature is available in some jurisdictions, but not in the UK for sure. It will set you back 100x the stake to purchase the feature, and the bonus buy RTP increases to 96.46 %. The Mega Hold&Win bonus round comes with an organic hit rate of 1 in 252 spins.

Review Summary

We have seen plenty of Hold & Win style games from iSoftBet in recent times, but Gaze of Gold sticks out in several ways. First of all, the visual presentation is above average, and it’s clear from the get-go that they’ve poured some extra heart and soul into this Greek mythology effort. The greenish Medusa gaze is spooky enough as it turns symbols to stone for the streak respins feature, and this can help you collect enough scatters to trigger the bonus round as well.

The Hold&Win Bonus Round is also above average in this genre, not least due to the visually impressive grid expansion feature. The booster symbols can do decent damage as well, and being able to win 15,000x your stake cements Gaze of Gold as a pretty solid game. If you’re going to try just one Hold&Win slot of the many this developer has churned out, we recommend that you go with this one. It might not be up there with the best of them, but Gaze of Gold is still well worth checking out for people who enjoy this kind of bonus round.
