Visually this game is highly detailed. We are immediately transported into this mythical medieval world where magic runs rife, we just have to hope that magic will make its way to our slot game board! With twining trees, alight with magic, filling the night’s sky in a swamping forest, there is a great level of detail in the visual design of this on line casino game which transports us to into the fantasy world of Goldaur Guardians!
Alchemy Gaming – the Developers of Goldaur Guardians Casino Game
Alchemy Gaming is a small team of independent slot game developers working for Microgaming. They say that the user experience and mathematics are at the heart of everything they do. They are a relatively new team, only having three games to their roster, so let us take a look at how that translates to one of their flagship titles.
Playing Goldaur Guardians
The symbols in this top slot games are small embryonic fairy looking creatures, alongside the higher value character symbols which are beautifully illustrated, their tonal pallet echoing their individual characteristics, the best being the golden elf, carrying a sceptre aglow with magic, that has been masterfully crafted to show his nobility and that’s before we even notice his golden crown! On top of this, we have the wild symbol, which is represented by a large ornate golden “W” with beautiful detailing surrounding it. If that isn’t enough, it has a pay maximum pay out of 50 time our stake. There is also a scatter symbol, which an equally well crafted golden tree and can pay out a potential 100 times our stake!
Goldaur Guardians come with the online casino standard of 5 Reels and 3 Rows which gives us 20 Paylines to get our winnings from. This slot game has a High Volatility so bare that in mind when thinking about your strategy for getting the most out of this game. That being said it has a superb RTP of 96.36%! So even with a high volatility, there are still good odds in comparison to some other online slots out there and with a min bets of £0.20 it is accessible to all of us, especially when we have a max bet of £100! That’s a great betting range!
This slot game offers a potential of 1000 times your stake per spin, but the actual odds of achieving this are infinitesimal as it requires us to be lucky enough to land wilds across every reel. That being said, there are still opportunities to get some good winnings.
Bonus Features and Bonus Spins in Goldaur Guardians
All of us have found ourselves shouting in anguish as all but one of the reels have lined up perfectly, well now we can choose to spin a single reel at an additional cost to hopefully turn the luck our way!
If we land between 3 and 5 scatter symbols, it will trigger a bonus spin round where we will get either 5,7 or 10 bonus spins relative to our scatters.
Finally there this feature, this randomly triggers and it stacks wilds and hero symbols across the 3rd, 4th and 5th reel.
Our Verdict on Goldaur Guardians
This is a beautifully designed game, the look and feel of it are superb and in combination with wholly appropriate music to accompany our journey in this mystic world. All these positives mean very little if the underlying mechanics aren’t there and there seem to be some lacking here. Without a big bank role, the odds are not in our favour at all as we have to rely on the big payout moments and we all know how seldom they can be. That being said, these mechanics are interesting and keep us held in this fantasy world. All in all this is a good game, but for a team that says the players are at the heart of what they do, it would be nice to see a little more opportunity given to those of us who are the underdogs in the challenge. Because of these short comings, we would have to give this a 6/10.
