Gold Canyon Slot review
Gold Canyon is a gold mining and Wild West themed game, so you get a mix of the two themes, along with high quality graphics which are typical for Betsoft.
One of the slot machines released by Betsoft, a developer with a good history when it comes to high quality graphics in such games, Gold Canyon will feature two themes that have been quite popular over the years. One of them will involve the Wild West, with its cowboys and Wanted villains. The other will rely on gold mining, and will show us a train track which leads into the side of a hill. There is a mining cart filled with gold which comes out of it. Feature icons use the Cowboy and Dynamite for their images. As regular symbols, you will encounter gold nuggets, stallions, oil lamps, a sheriff badge, a horseshoe, the Wanted Poster and a hand of five cards. I’ve found the graphics of Gold Canyon to be quite enjoyable, it shows that Betsoft’s designers know what they’re doing in this regard.
Gold Canyon will get you the usual 5×3 reels that you will spin each round, along with just as typical 20 active lines. The developer mentions that the maximum possible win is 4774.80x total stake, while the game’s RTP is set to 96.13%. With Dynamite scatters, free spins or Cowboy Wilds, the features provide you with several good options.
$0.20 to $20, this is the entire betting range which you will find at the bottom. The game gives you 20 lines, so the wagers displayed will rely on line bets of $0.01 to $1.
Cowboy Wilds are going to be visible on the last four reels (2-5), but while it’s not going to pay you directly, it will be extremely helpful since it’s an expanding symbol. This means that whenever they appear, the Cowboy Wilds take over all three positions on a reel, provided that it can help with the creation of a new combo.
The Dynamite scatters aren’t there just to look pretty. These symbols, when appearing 3+ times, will explode and will trigger a cascade mechanic which brings other symbols in. Following this feature, you’re going to get access to free spins. Each exploding Dynamite icon will get you 1 free game.
Gold Canyon has the usual excellent graphics from Betsoft, features an OK mix of features, with high top payouts and an RTP which is about as fair as you can expect a slot to be.
