Golden Profits is a gorgeous video slot released in July of 2017 by the Malta-based software provider Booming Games. Taking a few cues from Greek mythology to showcase three powerful, and oh so valuable deities. It offers one of the prettiest background images we have seen, smooth but rare animations, a fittingly epic soundtrack for the Greek gods. And while all of that is important, none matches the almighty special features that make this title live up to its name.
On top of the fact it has several bonuses to pick from, it also has an RTP of 96.99%, which easily beats the average for games. On top of that, there are Wilds with x3 multipliers, free spins during which all wins are multiplied by 3x, stacked Wilds, and a permanently enabled 2-way-pay bonus. All of these things result in the high volatility of this Booming Games release, and the jackpot worth 45,000x the stake.
One area that we do feel somewhat let down are symbols. The reels are a solid color, which is not bad by itself, as there is still a fair amount of the background image visible. We are less pleased with the fact there are no unique icons, only playing card icons for the lower paying symbols. Higher paying icons constitute of three Greek deities.
The Wild takes Zeus’ lightning bolt as its symbol, and can replace all symbols except for Scatters. Scatters, meanwhile, use the game’s logo as their icon, and can activate free spins.
Thanks to the constantly active 2-way-pay bonus, wins are awarded when identical, matching symbols appear, following one of the five paylines, both left to right, and right to left. The only exception to this is when the playing field is full of one symbol – in that case, the win is only awarded once.
The need to adjust your total bet to your budget needs before starting to spin is even more important thanks to the high volatility of Golden Profits. You can set your bet level between $0.01 up to $25 per spin by changing your bet level and amount of active paylines.
Autoplay allows gamblers to set up the game so it plays automatically for up to 100 turns at a bet level they set. You can pause these auto-spins if you need to take a break.
Wilds can appear anywhere on the reels, and can replace any symbol except for Scatters. Wilds can appear stacked on the playing field, and can also have a 3x multiplier attached to them. The 3x multiplier only activates once, regardless of how many Wilds you have.
Free spins are triggered when players collect three or more Scatter symbols. During free spins, all wins are tripled, and this works on top of the 3x multiplier you can get from a Wild. Collecting three or more Scatters while free spins are already active rewards ten more free spins.
Golden Profits is available for desktop, tablets and mobile phones alike.
With its high volatility, features teeming with multipliers, and a potential jackpot of 45,000x the stake, this is a video slot just as divine as the gods that inhabit it.
