The Golden Wild payouts. Two, three, four, and five Chinese girl pays X5, X30, X100, and X400. Three, four, and five winning combinations: golden coin pays X10, X50, and X800; pagoda pays X60, X300, and X3000; pot of gold pays X20, X60, and X250; Chinese lantern pays X15, X50, and X200; horns, or hand fan pays X10, X30, and X125; K, or A pays X8, X20, and X80; and Q, or J, or 10, or 9 pays X5, X10, and X40.
Three to five pagodas offer eleven free spins—eight ordinary free spins that precede three re-triggerable gold free spins, where one of the ordinary symbols is converted into a substituting wild. In the side game, the current win can be gambled—either lost entirely, or doubled/duadrupled—by clicking the green-and-white “2X” icon along the bottom. On the pop-up window, players: click “red” or “black” that, if correctly predicted, doubles the gamble amount; click the diamonds, or hearts, or spades, or clubs suit icons that, when accurately predicted, quadruples the gamble amount. Pressing “take win” ignores the side game, while wrong predictions nullify the current win.
Golden Wild has two progressive jackpots: a minor jackpot ranging from $826.28 to $1000.00; and a major jackpot ranging from $8,054.37 to $10,000.00.
The good Golden Wild software does not constantly time out, and has: up/down volume; fast mode; ten-game-long game history; and 5, 10, 25, 50, or 100 autospins. The mutable ambient background consists of Chinese guitar and bamboo flute. The abstract art background aside; the animated 3D graphics include gushing golden coins during the “out of this world” wins, zooming out symbols, the flipping golden coin’s fiery centrifugal force trail, and confetti effect.
