California Gold Slots

There's nothing like the thrill of mining for gold. California Gold is about the gold rush to California and it will have you blasting and mining your way to riches as you go through a wide variety of mining-related symbols. The game is set to a bright California landscape backdrop with barrels, dynamite and a whole lot of land to be mined showing off. It's a good slot game, offers some nice features and pays out a decent jackpot as well.

Placing your Initial Bet

To start the game set your coin value to between $.01 and $10. Once you do that you can decide how many different pay lines you want to bet on at the same time. You can bet on 1 line or up to 25 lines. Each line will cost you another coin, so your bet can be as little as $.01 or as much as $250 depending on how brave you are and how large your mining bankroll is.

Playing the Game

California Gold is a standard 5-reel video slot with wilds and scatter symbols. It's home to a variety of mining-related symbols and offers a few good solid jackpot symbols to look for. The eager minor breaking into rock serves as the most valuable symbol in the game and you can get up to 5,000 coins by getting 5 of these on the reels somewhere. That means you can win as much as $50,000 if you are betting the full amount while playing this game.

The Miner Wild Doubles all Wins

While playing this slot game you should be on the lookout for the gold miner symbol. He serves as a wild for the game and will sub in for anything but the gold scatter. The miner will also double any wins that he is involved with. The miner will only show up on the three middle reels of the game and won't show on either of the outside edges.

Trigger the Free Game Round

There's a special free spin round available to players that three or more of the gold scatter symbols out on the reels of the game. When that happens you'll be immediately taken to a free spin round that you can use to get additional prizes from the game.

If you like mining or just enjoy the graphics of California Gold you should take some time and try it out. It's an enjoyable game that's worth playing, even if just for a short time. You could win some seriously nice bonuses while playing, and you might even unlock a free bonus round or two as you play.
