How to Play
To get this factory to start working for you, start by adjusting your bet settings.
Coin size goes from $0.01 to $0.10 and you can find this at the left hand side of the screen. Then right next to the coins size is the green Lines button. In Lines, choose the number of lines you want to bet on, which can be anything from 1 to 50. We recommend going for the maximum number of lines so that your odds of hitting a payline increases. If you feel this starts getting expensive fast, then go with a smaller coin size. Choose the number of coins you want to bet per line on the Coins button. This goes from 1 to 20. After that you’re ready to hit Spin!
The Max Bet button is a nice shortcut – this will set your bet to the maximum 50 paylines and 20 coins per line without adjusting your coins value. This is quite handy but may not be suitable for beginners, because even if your coin size is just $0.01 this does add up to $10 per spin.
Gold Factory’s two special symbols, which are also the highest value ones, are as follows:
- Bonus Scatter: Gold Coin with Factory Owner (a man in Top Hat)
- Wild: Gold Factory icon
Other high value symbols in descending value order are:
- Factory Owner
- Young fellow on an adventure
- The Factory Building
Graphics and Sounds
Gold Factory is fun, busy and buzzing – sort of like how you would imagine Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It’s an intricate building with pipes and cogs and hidden rooms. There’s a lot of gold around – after all, you are in a gold factory. The sound is a jolly chirpy tune, which like most pokie soundtracks do get annoying after a while. So when the time comes, the mute button is all the way up in the top right corner of the screen.
The fixed jackpot is worth 20,000 coins. Win it by spinning 5 Bonus Scatter symbols on a payline. However, there’s up to 61,900 coins to be won in Gold Factory. To grab this surplus of coins, you will have to enter the Boiler Room to uncover the hidden prizes. More about it in Special Features.
Bonus games are where Gold Factory really shines. So without much ado:
Boiler Room Bonus
Enter the Boiler Room by spinning 3 or more Bonus Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Once you’re in, you get to choose 4 out of 12 prizes. If you find the Free Spins or Reactor Bonus, you’ll trigger the 2nd level of the Boiler Room.
Free Spins Bonus
During the 2nd level of the Boiler Room, you get between 10 to 35 free spins. Not only are the spins free, but any wins on them are doubled.
If you found a Reactor Bonus in the Boiler Room, be very careful. You will get 12 more prizes to pick from –which of course is amazing – but there are 2 “Malfunction” symbols hidden there, and as soon as you uncover one, the bonus round will end. Cross your fingers and hope that you don’t find these until the very end!
