Sultans Gold is a slot game developed by Playtech some time ago. It borrows heavily from Arabian Nights mythos and presents us with a romanticized version of the Middle East. The game comes with 5 reels and 20 paylines, which is the standard for older Playtech titles. Betting options are also quite diverse, allowing players from every budget to spin the reels of this wonderful game.
A bet can be placed on each of the 20 paylines, while the size of these bets can range from $0.01 to $50 per line. Essentially, the game will allow you to wager your spare change, as well as, hundreds of dollars. The minimum bet for 20 paylines is $0.20, while the maximum can go as high $1,000.
The theme of Sultans Gold portrays the full glory of the Arabian Peninsula back in Middle Ages. Therefore, users are treated to various imagery of an Arabian palace, including a sultan, a dancer, gas lamps, scimitars and more. The background image is that of a lush oasis, while the some of the symbols are drawn on an ornate carpet background. The music that plays during the game also contributes much to the overall atmosphere, making the gaming experience highly immersive.
While the graphics of the game not of the best quality, when compared with newer games, the style of the visuals is beautiful nonetheless. Presentation is a very strong aspect of Sultans Gold and it accomplishes its purpose well.
Like any slot game, Sultans Gold features a variety of different symbols on its reels. These will come in a random order every time you spin the reels and may earn you nice rewards if you manage to hit a certain combination. Sultans Gold pays left to right, with winning combinations starting from the leftmost reel and continuing along one of the active paylines.
Based on their pay tables and the interactions they have in the game, we can separate the symbols into three groups. The Low Paying group consists of high cards symbols, ranging from Ten to Ace. This group forms combinations when you line up 3 or more of the same symbol along a payline. The High Paying category includes various items and people from the palace. It receives its name from the significantly better rewards the symbols offer. Winning combinations of High Paying symbols start from two or more of the same symbol along an active payline. The most worthwhile combination is 5x Sultan, which rewards the player with 5,000 coins.
The final symbol creates its own category and it combines the function of the Wild and Scatter. This is the Palace symbol, which will substitute for any other symbol on the paylines, helping you complete winning combinations. Additionally, it will also reward you with a round of free spins when certain criteria are met. The Palace symbol pays 200 coins for hitting 5 of them on a single spin.
Combinations and Jackpot
Sultans Gold does not come with too many features, but what we do have is certainly worthwhile. Free games can be won whenever you spin 3 or more of the Palace symbol at once. Those lucky enough to trigger this feature will be rewarded with 10 free spins, during which a Mystery Scatter will be applied. The Mystery Scatter will be chosen from one of the regular symbols and it will behave as a Scatter for the duration of the free spins. This means that it will win whenever it appears on the reels, regardless of its position.
The payout for the Mystery Scatter will be that of the original symbol’s pay table multiplied by the bet value. An excellent feature of the free spins is that they can be retriggered. Hitting 3 or more Palace symbols will award you with an additional 10 free games.
