Golden Stallion Online Slot by Microgaming and Northern Lights Gaming puts you in the dusty mouth of a towering canyon where wild horses frolic above the reels and appear as symbols on the grid. The game’s bonus features include free spins and wilds.
The animated horses above the reels randomly gallop towards you, creating highlighted positions on the reels. A gold sheriff badge above the reels contains a random number that counts down to when the feature will activate and when it does, all the highlighted positions will be replaced with mystery symbols that transform to reveal the same symbol. After the feature has ended, a new number of spins will be added to the star.
If 3 scatters appear on reels 1, 3, and 5 the game will change to the Bonus Horseshoe round where you are allocated 3 spins to fill as many positions on an empty grid with special horseshoe symbols. Landing more than one symbol in a single position will create 2x to 4x sized symbols that ultimately determine how many Ultraways or paylines you will unlock. The maximum number playable is 196 608.
Golden Stallion Ultraways offers intriguing gameplay and an integrated theme with brilliant potential. The Wild horse theme isn’t the most visually spectacular one you will see, but the interplay between the animations and gameplay in the Golden Spins feature adds a uniquely entertaining element. The free spins mode gives you a shot at the slot’s top potential of $3 million thanks to the Ultraways mechanic which gives you a staggering number of paylines. While the game’s graphics could use some tweaking, the gameplay in this title, coupled with its winning potential makes it a compelling prospect.
