Gold Rally Slot Game Crosses The Million Mark

In the last year the prices of gold have rallied from about $700 per ounce to $1,000 per ounce. The progressive jackpot of the online slot game Gold Rally has also spurted upwards. About ten days ago it was reported that it could breach the million dollar mark any time soon and it has done so in June itself. On the way it has overtaken some other progressive jackpot online slots that have been hovering just below the million dollar mark for ages.

Gold Rally, which was growing at $20k a day, is now growing at $25k a day in anticipation of a big hit. In contrast Red White & Win, which is at $986k, is growing at only $1k a day. Shopping Spree, currently at $962k is growing even more slowly. The last big payout by Gold Rally was $1.3 million and that will be the next stop that the watchers of this slot game will be looking at.

One of the reasons that Gold Rally grows faster than many of its counterparts is that it is a 9 reel slot game, and there are not many of those around. The 9 reels are not aligned in a row but in a 3 x 3 matrix. That gives a payline consisting of 3 spots. There are 8 paylines – 3 horizontal, 3 vertical and 2 diagonal. This unusual construction generates a lot of interest. Otherwise it is a simple slot game with a fixed wager of $2 per coin and 1 coin per payline.

Gold Rally has an old fashioned gold mining theme. The symbols on the reels include pickaxes, lanterns, dynamite sticks, trolleys and bags of gold. The largest line payout is 500 coins for aligning three Gold Rally logo symbols in a payline. In progressive jackpot slots that offer huge payouts the line payments are usually not big. The progressive jackpot is hit when all nine spots have the weighing scale symbols. The dynamite symbol in each of the four corners of the matrix triggers a bonus game on the second screen. In this game players have to choose two from six mining spots and win bonus credits.

Gold Rally is a Playtech release. Playtech is one of the leading online gaming software providers. Over the last few months it has made some big moves in order to consolidate its position in the online gaming market. In a recent interview Barak, the chief finance officer, outlined some huge acquisition plans to the tune of over $750 million. Earlier this month Playtech released 9 online casino games at the same time, which is one of the biggest releases the online gaming industry has seen.
