Sails of Gold

Theme

When Christopher Columbus discovered the American continent, opening a route for many settlers in the hope of a better world, a new era in world history began. The world prospered since that time but his name remains written in history.

Somehow he managed to find a place in one of the latest video pokie games from Play ‘N Go, Sails of Gold.

Developers

This software provider has a decent offer of video pokie games, which may not be as popular as the leading providers, but are still very fun to play. Most of their games have decent visual effects and are designed as low to mid variance pokies.

Sails of Gold was a long awaited release and we expected a lot from this game, but we can’t hide our disappointment with Play ‘N Go. Instead of launching something new and original they designed an exact clone game of Columbus Deluxe by Novamatic.

How to Play

Like all other similar games Sails of Gold has a very simple design with only 10 active pay lines. Their number can be adjusted as you wish but playing the maximum number of bet lines is always preferable.

The bet size goes from $0.10 up to $50 per spin, so this game can be a good choice for all bankrolls. From there on all you need is the spin or auto spin button for longer sessions.

Special Features

Sails of Gold has the standard wild ( Columbus ) and scatter ( Ship ) symbols. The scatters don’t offer any payout, while the wild symbol has a decent 5,000 coins payout for 5 of them on a winning pay line.

The scatter symbols trigger the free spins bonus round if you manage to land 3 of them on reels 1, 3 and 5. Here you will be awarded with 10 free spins which can be re-triggered if you land another set of 3 scatters on the same reels. This bonus round doesn’t have any multiplier added which is a bit strange.

Having a multiplier on the free spins winnings is standard to most video pokie games and in our opinion is a great setback in this game. The only great feature in this bonus round is that the scatter symbol also acts as an extra wild symbol.

Considering that it can only land on reels 1, 3 and 5 this feature brings bigger chances of hitting a decent 5 of a kind combination. If you add the standard wild symbol which can land in every spin, even winning 5 wilds on a pay line seems very possible.

Maximums Payout

Sails of Gold has a decent pay table with a 5,000 coins payout for 5 wilds on a pay line and a 2,000 coins payout for the second highest symbol.

One thing we can’t understand here is the maximum 250,000 coins payout promoted by Play ‘N Go for this game. It’s quite obvious it’s not promoted as a single spin win, but most likely for one bonus round feature.

This means you will need to have about 50 x 5 of a kind wild wins on a pay line, which seems impossible to achieve. Statistically you have more chances of hitting a random jackpot than this kind of win on any pokie game.

Summary

We’re always honest and brutal in our reviews so Sails of Gold won’t get any special treatment.

We are not sure what the designers from Play ‘N Go were thinking with this game. They decided to release an exact clone of an already existing game without even bringing in a lot of changes. Except for the way the symbols look like everything else is exactly the same.

We expected at least to see a multiplier in the bonus round but our expectations were in vain. This is one game on which we had a terrible session and can’t recommend for real play. The base play winnings were always small and a few spins apart which had a devastating effect on our balance. We didn’t see one  medium or big win even in the bonus round.

Landing 3 scatters seems fairly easy, but the payouts are very small because there is no multiplier attached. Re-triggering the bonus round seems almost impossible and the most we managed to get was only one re-trigger. Not a game we would recommend for winning big because it eats a lot of balance and gives nothing back in return.
