It has just been revealed that oil has been found deep in the heart of Texas, so pack up your gear, find a perfect spot to drill and get cracking. It may take you a while to locate the black gold, but all your hard work will pay off big time if you are successful. Get some help from the locals to set up an oil pump and don't worry about expenses as you should have no problems turning a hefty profit once you start selling the oil to those big companies.
Released in 2012, Black Gold features an oil drilling theme, with the storyline placed in the Texas desert. The 3D slot has 5 reels and 30 paylines and quite a few bonus rounds, meaning online gamers have a decent chance of striking oil here. Stunning graphics and great animations are nothing less than we expected from Betsoft, while the game has a rustic feel to it and is bound to offer endless hours of premium entertainment.
Play Black Gold
The main object of the game is to drill as much oil as possible so that you can later exchange it for cash and possibly become a millionaire. Seasoned oil digger Ol' Bill will be there to take you through your paces, with his trusted horse, oil barrels, oil drop, wads of cash, pipeline, “No Trespassing” sign, bull horns, drill, oil pump and barn also populating the reels. Hit a winning combination using any of these symbols and watch the reels come to life thanks to expert animations.
How to play
Pick coin value from $0.02 to $0.50, select up to 5 coins and up to 30 paylines before pressing spin or max bet spin to begin. All game options are styled as objects related to the main storyline.
Three or more Barn icons anywhere on the reels trigger the Nighttime Free Spins Mode. During free spins, Barn is Wild and it can multiply line wins up to x10.
At least three Drill symbols anywhere on the reels activate the Drilling for Oil Click Me feature that awards instant prizes once you pick one of three oil drills.
Strategy & Tips
Get three or more oil pump icons to enter the bonus round. You are then required to say whether the next number will be higher or lower than the one shown on the screen. After four hits or misses, the bonus rounds ends and you are awarded bonus coins.
Your payout on any winning combination will be followed by central reel re-spining to earn bigger wins. Each time the reel re-spins your multiplier will increase, seeing you earn up to x5 multiplier on any wins resulting from the process.
Ol' Bill and his horse are the only game symbols awarding payouts of 1,000 coins or more, but that is unlikely to be a problem with so many special features available.
