Play’N Go Just Launched Golden Caravan Pokie Machine
It’s been a while since we saw something new coming from Play ‘N Go, but it seems April was a busy month for them. They launched two new video pokie games with similar design and theme, but still very different in game play and payouts.
Golden Caravan in our opinion is the better version thanks to the interesting bonus round features. The design of the games is similar with basic visual details and a decent background music. Both games look like low variance pokies, but they can be very rewarding at times.
What We love
Everyone will agree that the best feature of this game is the bonus round. Base play wins are small to medium, but the big payouts can only happen in the free spins. We love the fact that the scatter symbol also acts as an extra wild and that it lands on reels 1, 3 and 5.
The game also has a standard wild symbol, with a 5,000 coins payout, which only contributes to the overall payout potential. Also the best fact about this bonus feature is that the multiplier grows by one with every re-trigger. This only increases your chances of hitting a big win preferably on a high multiplier value.
What We Do not Like
We can’t say that we don’t like the design of the game along with the visual effects and animations, but we expected more from Play ‘N Go.
Golden Caravan seems like a clone video pokie game from Novamatic and we expected more originality. In the bonus round we don’t like the fact that the already accumulated free spins number is reset once you re-trigger the bonus round. It’s really annoying to lose your previously won free spins instead of adding them to the overall number.
To be honest we don’t know what the designers were thinking with this detail and many gamblers will be mentioning them as they play.
Golden Caravan is one of the rare new video pokie games that we can recommend for play with real money. The overall game concept is great and the bonus round can really pay big.
We have no specific information how many re-triggers are possible in the bonus round. This way we don’t know how high the multiplier can go. If the promoted 250,000 coins maximum payout value is for one spin, then the maximum multiplier value should be x50 or less due to the 5,000 coins payout for 5 wilds on a pay line.
But if we set this aside and base our review on real play experience the results are promising. Base play wins come very often and there are some medium wins of 20-30 x bet as you play.
This way your balance doesn’t drop fast even while playing on high bets. The free spins also seem very easy to trigger and you usually get one or two retriggers. We didn’t manage to hit a big win in the bonus round but it seems it’s only a matter of time when that will happen.
Overall Golden Caravan seems like a great game for bonus wagering and with a potential to pay big in one lucky bonus round. You can try it for real and see if you have the same experience as we did. We can only hope your session will be even better than ours and that you will find out how high the maximum multiplier actually is.
