An Online Slot For Winter Olympics

The 2018 Winter Olympics are in progress at Pyeong Chang in South Korea. Canada always performs creditably in the Winter Olympics and is amongst the top medal winners so far. At online casinos there are a large number of video slots based on the Summer Olympics. But the only decent title for the Winter Olympics is Winter Gold. It is from the Microgaming portfolio and can be played at Canadian online casinos like Royal Vegas, All Slots and Jackpot City.

The reels are set in a background of snow peaks and falling snow. The visuals are simple but bold. Popular events like Biathlon, Speed Skating, Ski Jumping and Bob Sleigh are the high paying symbols. In the win animations the symbols become dynamic and the event becomes live. The ski jumper flies high above the landscape. The biathlon athlete manoeuvres down the snowy slope. The usual playing card icons are the low paying symbols. The Winter Gold Logo is the wild symbol and it awards the highest line payouts. Five of these symbols in an enabled payline result in a payout of 5000 times the line bet. This indicates fairly high variance in the slot game.

The Gold Medal is the scatter and bonus symbol. Two or more scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels results in payouts multiplied by the total bet. The payout for five scatter symbols is 400 coins, which is again above par. Three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels trigger the Bonus Wheel Feature.

The Bonus Wheel has eight sections. The heel is spun and you are awarded the prize in the winning section. Two sections award up to 20 free spins and two sections award up to 18,000 coins as bonus. The remaining four sections award bonus games on the second screen. Each bonus game is related to one of the four winter sport events and is an audio visual delight. The animation has different camera angles and the crowd cheering. It is like watching the sporting event on television. In each event you choose one of the competing athletes or teams and are awarded bonus credits based on their performance.

Winter Gold is a 15 selectable paylines video slot, but players should follow the golden rule of activating all paylines. You can wager up to 20 coins per payline and vary the coin size from CA$0.01 to CA$0.20. The maximum total bet per spin works out to CA$60.
