Gold Rally is Playtech’s premier progressive slot - a themed 8 pay line, 9 reel slot which frequently breaks its own record for massive payouts. The Gold Rally progressive jackpot is linked between all Playtech’s network of casinos, and the slot has a minimum jackpot value of 37500 coins, which equals $75,000. However, progressive jackpots frequently rise to over $1 million dollars, and in 2006, two jackpots of over $2 million dollars each were hit within two months of each other. On 30th June, Peter C broke all previous records when he won over $2,189,152. Less than two months later, the jackpot was up at over two million dollars again, when Diane B won $2,058,191 on August 21st 2006.
Gold Rally is an 8 line fixed coin size slot based around a Gold Mining theme. Coin size is set a $2 per line, making the maximum bet to qualify for the progressive win $16. The contribution rate of the machine is 2%, meaning that 2% of all bets placed on the machine across the Playtech network go into funding the progressive jackpot.
The symbols on the reels are all items you would use when mining for gold – pickaxe, lantern, dynamite, gold sack, mine cart etc plus a horseshoe for luck and a pistol to keep the looters away! The scatter symbol is the gold weighing scales, between five and eight scatter symbols anywhere on the reels pay between 5 and 200 times your stake. However if you hit all nine scatters when playing max bet, the progressive jackpot will be yours.
Gold Rallys pay table is generous, and the machine hits smaller wins often, paying between 2 and 500 times your stake. The latest release of Gold Rally includes a new bonus game, triggered when the red dynamite symbols appear in the four corners of the slot. The bonus game involves choosing an x on the miners map to pick a location to dig for gold. With wins of several hundred credits often paid, and multiple rounds available, the bonus game is a fun and profitable way to bolster your bank roll while waiting for the big hit.
An autoplay feature is also available, and as Playtech casinos allow multiple games to be played at any one time you can set Gold Rally to play in the background, being sure it will notify you if you hit a bonus round, or the progressive!
Between October 2005 and November 2006, Gold Rally has paid five jackpots worth over one million dollars, with two wins of over 2 million dollar. Numerous other winners have been paid smaller amounts, with an average win the region of half a million dollars. The machine hits the progressive jackpot on average around every 60 days. If jackpot growth increases as it has done in the past twelves months, it seems likely that the Gold Rally slot will pay out its first 3 million dollar winner within the next year – and it mght just be you!
