Disappear into a Great Gatsby-esque fantasy of this golden age that has long since passed, whenever and wherever you are.
Traditionally stretching from the late 1920s to the early 1960s, the Golden Era brought us such movies as Casablanca, Gone With The Wind, and The Wizard Of Oz. With stars including Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton and directors such as Alfred Hitchcock making their mark on the movie industry at this time, it’s an era worth celebrating with some golden wins.
Golden Era’s design draws mainly on the 1920s and 1930s styles, with symbols including an early paparazzo, a handsome actor in top hat and tails, and a blonde actress adorning the five reels. There’s also a classic car, movie camera, cinema tickets and film reels among others, which can make up winning combinations on the 15 paylines - and we haven’t even got to the bonus symbols yet…
The Golden Era logo acts as the standard wild symbol in this game, substituting for any of the other symbols except for the scatter to make winning combinations.
The scatter symbol is represented by a clapperboard, and landing three or more of these will activate Golden Era’s bonus features.
If you can land three, four or five of the scatter clapperboard symbols anywhere on the reels, you’ll be prompted to choose one of two bonus features, either free spins with embracing wilds, or the double feature bonus.
In the free spins bonus round, you’ll be awarded 12 free spins with Golden Era’s embracing wilds feature.
In this feature, there are two reels which are fully wild - one as the actor, one as the actress - which start off on reels one and five.
As the free spins play out they move to reels two and four, and then finally they embrace on reel three. If you win with the normal wilds, the win is paid at a rate of 1x, but if you win with the embracing wild on reel three, the game will pay out double.
Unfortunately you can’t retrigger the free spins feature from within, but the embracing wilds can really make this feature pay.
Double Feature Bonus
In the double feature bonus, you will be shown a pick screen with classic movie posters. You can pick up to 10 movies until you reveal the stopper symbol.
Under each movie poster there could be a cash prize or a multiplier for your wins in this bonus round, meaning those credits can really rack up.
