The famous red Golden Gate Bridge can be seen the whole way across the game screen bathed in sunlight, and to complete the perfect picture there is a retro melody playing making this one enticing game that will draw players into their own world within seconds and your trip to San Francisco will have never been as successful as this one particularly as players will be au fait with the slot and know exactly how to use it to their advantage. Five reels containing three symbols a piece complete the game matrix and although this along with the 10 pay lines may be smaller than most new slots for fun, there are plenty of wins on offer. The aim of Golden Gate the slot is for players to line up winning combinations of symbols on their pay lines to be rewarded with the corresponding cash reward. Players can use the plus and minus buttons that are in the lower right-hand side of the screen to adjust how much they want to bet, and although the rest is down to luck it is important that players remember that the more they bet the bigger the rewards will be when one or more combinations are shown across their reels.
With the bet in place all players have left to do is hit the gold spin button to lock in the settings and the reels will then begin spinning. There us an auto start for those who would rather play at a quicker pace, and this game slot will automatically continue to spin without any player intervention. All the player needs to do is set their bet amount, and switch to the auto start mode courtesy of the shortcut available in the command bar.
There are eight basic symbols in the online slots, with each symbol responsible for activating different rewards when they land in sequence on the pay lines. Players can check out what the symbols are worth on the pay table, the first half of which contains the classic card styled symbols Jack, Queen, King and Ace. These are the most common symbols in the game which will also show up on the reels most frequently, and unsurprisingly these are worth the least. The bigger wins come from the Lanterns, the Blue Cadillac, the Orange Tree and the bright red Fire Truck. Landing just a few combinations that are made up from these symbols will certainly see the players bank balance explode which at the end of the day is what players will be wanting.
During the base game, landing five in a row of the playing card symbols will reward players with wins from 100 – 150 whilst the lanterns, blue Cadillac and Orange tree reward 500 for landing five, with the red truck paying 1,000 for landing five. The wild in Golden Gate is the bridge itself and can substitute for all the symbols apart from the scatter and the wild sees wins being subjected to a x2 multiplier. The scatter is depicted as a cable car and the rewards for landing just three cable cars will be between 1,000 – 2,000 however two will also provide a win. When players are lucky enough to land three cable cars they are automatically entered in a maximum win lottery. Every time the player lands a win they have the chance to double their money playing either the card gamble game or ladder gamble.
With an RTP over 96% this is a solid if not the most exciting slot the animation is good, and a particularly nice touch is that the animations apply every time the player makes a win. This is a pleasant slot machine even though for some it will feel a rather underwhelming.
