About Golden Ark: Deluxe
What Novomatic have done with Golden Ark: Deluxe, is to basically style their own Indiana Jones slot. We know that whilst no official copyrights have been breached, this explorer character, searching Ancient Egypt for the Ark of the Covenant is all very Indiana Jones. Aside from the main character being a heroine, it is nigh on a duplicate. Golden Ark: Deluxe offers just 10 paylines for you to win on, which are sitting pretty on top of the 5 reels that this video slot has to offer.
At the bottom of the reels, lies the wagering menu bar. From there, players can choose how many paylines they wish to play with, as well as how to construct their bet. Personally, we’d always recommend playing with all 10 – you’ll stand a better chance of winning and this slot is cheap anyway. Line bets can range from 0.01 up to 5.00 in total, giving Golden Ark: Deluxe a floor bet of just 0.01 per line, per spin; and a ceiling bet which is fixed at just 50.00 per spin.
The Eye is the most important icon in Golden Ark: Deluxe. This symbols acts as a bonus symbol. When the icon appears, the player will land a free spins bonus.
The Book of the Dead (a popular item in another exploration and adventure movie set in Egypt) is the wild symbol in this slot. When the Book of the Dead wild icon appears, it can replace all other symbols in the game, even the bonus icon.
Our lead heroine – for the sake of argument, let’s call her Diana Jones – is the game’s best paying symbol. When this icon appears 5 times on any active payline, the player is treated to the non-progressive jackpot win, which is worth 5,000 coins.
The free spins feature in this game is pretty bland. Players need to land 3 or more of the Eye icons in order to trigger it. Players are invited to enjoy 10 free games, although there isn’t really much cause for either enjoyment or excitement. The free spins bonus in Golden Ark: Deluxe is pretty plain and big wins seldom seem to come along.
The problem with Golden Ark: Deluxe is that it seems like a rushed job. There just aren’t enough entertaining features, and the whole slot is half-heartedly fun at best.
