The symbols include treasure chests, scarabs, Bastet statues, Ankhs as the premium ones. The low-value symbols are the royal cards. The feature triggering ones include the Pyramid scatter responsible for the free spins. The Gold Coin is the bonus symbol, which activates the Hold & Win bonus game. The Pharaoh is the wild that substitutes for missing symbols of the premiums and card royals.
To score wins, you need 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols to land on any of the 25 pay-lines. Overall, these are the symbols you are very likely to have in most Egyptian video slots nowadays.
The features in Kings of Gold include Stacked Wilds. The wild is the Pharaoh symbol and it substitutes for all other except for the scatter. When the wild lands on any reel, it is capable of covering it fully. This gives you good chances to create more wins and increase existing ones with more symbols.
The second extra in the game is the Free Spins, which you trigger with 3 or more scatters landed in a single spin. The scatter is the pyramid-shaped symbol and 3 or more of it give you 8 free games.
The most significant role in the free spins plays the reel synchronisation. It synchronises reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, which are surrounded by fiery frames. The feature triggers absolutely by chance. It creates additional wins, which can form on all lines. This is possile since the symbols synch and will be the same on the same positions of these 4 reels.
As part of the Hold & Win slot series, Kings of Gold offers the respective bonus game. It activates with 5 special bonus symbols, which are gold coins. This mini-game offers initially 3 respins. During them, you can land only blanks or the same gold coin bonus symbols. Every time you get a new gold coin on a reel, the respins reset back to 3. The coin also turns sticky remaining on the grid until the end of the feature.
By keeping coins landing on the reels you reset the number of respins. This prolongs the bonus and fills the empty position. The Hold & Win game ends once you run out of respins or have filled all 15 positions with sticky Gold Coins. Filling all reel positions with Gold Coins gives you the largest fixed jackpot. If the Pharaoh appears on the screen, he will collect all coin symbols from the reels. Then, you will start the game from the beginning with new prizes.
The features offered at Kings of Gold are familiar to seasoned players. Although the winning potential is not very big, especially for high rollers, the game has fun free spins with syncing reels. They can reward richly and the respins bonus game can trigger frequently. If you are keen on video slots like Legacy of Egypt, Legend of the Nile and the like, give it a go!
