Sea of Gold Basic Information:

As nice as it might sound, a sea of gold is not a usable thing. Remember that old scene of Scrooge McDuck diving into his money? In reality that cartoon duck would break his neck. Then again in reality cartoon ducks have a hard time obtaining trillions of dollars. So what happens if we take such a name and run with it? Are the results as rich as Scrooge, or as poor as the most destitute Disney cartoon? How many more time will I bring up ducks? Keep reading our review to find out…

Sea of Gold Main Game Screen

Sea of Gold comes with a total of 243 lines over 5 reels in a 5*3 layout.

Options

Sea of Gold is a rather simple game, in terms of options. In fact, the game itself does not contain anything in the way of an options screen. Instead, the various ways in which the game can be manipulated is achieved through buttons displayed on the main game screen itself. These include:

  • Volume

This slider is found to the lower-left of the main game screen. Here the player can choose to set it to their preferred level, or mute all sound entirely.

  • Fullscreen

This option is found to the lower-left of the main game screen. With this option the played can simply set the game to fullscreen mode. Aside from making the game easier to see, this can also have the added effect of slightly increasing game performance, so keep that in mind.

  • Info

Pushing this button on the main game screen brings the player to the paytable and game information screen. When in this section the player can look at the various pays and bonus information.

  • Total Bet

The plus and minus symbols here are used to change the total bet. This is the only real way to modify your bet in this game.

  • Turbo

When this button is active the game will be set in quickspin mode. When in this mode there will be considerably less time spent in between the starting of the slots spinning and when they come to rest.

  • Auto

This is where the player accesses the autoplay function. When clicked this bring up a new screen where the player can choose from a selection of different autospin quantities, and stopping scenarios. These stopping scenarios include:

  • When a win occurs
  • When free games events occur
  • If a single win exceeds and entered amount
  • If losses exceed an entered amount
  • When total profits exceed an entered amount

Background:

Sea of Gold does not appear to be based off any preexisting property. What we can be sure of is that the name is not literal, as an actual sea of gold would definitely kill all of the fish contained within, and would likely destroy the entire global economy.

Other Features and Bonuses

The first of the main features from this game is the  bubble pot feature. With this feature any 3 or more matching symbols, gathered in a single spin, will add to the bubble pot meter located to the bottom-left of the main game screen. When this is completely filled the player will gain access to the 20 free spins with a 5x multiplier. Partially filled meters also maintain their fill in between games, so the player doesn't lose out.

Sea of Gold Wild

The wild symbol in Sea of Gold comes in the form of this oddly colourful deep sea angler fish. This guy can substitute for any symbol except the scatter. When combinations are won with this included in the formation the player wins give a double payout.

Sea of Gold Scatter

The  scatter symbol in Sea of Gold comes in the form of this treasure chest. These do not need to appear on an active payline in order to generate their payouts. Gaining at least three of these in one spin will generate wins in the following quantities:

  • 3 symbols will give 9 free spins when gathered
  • 4 symbols will give 12 free spins when gathered
  • 5 symbols will give 15 free spins when gathered

Bonus Games

The free spins bonus in Sea of Gold is won in two different ways. The first is through the complete filling of the bubble pot feature. The second is by collecting a minimum of 3 scatter symbols in a single spin. Additional free spins can be won from within either of these free spins bonus games.

How to Play:

Basic play for Sea of Gold is as simple as a player selecting a betting amount and clicking spin.

Alternatively the player can use the autospin button to enter their own autospin custom rules.

Overall Design and Usability:

Sea of Gold is a very simple looking game, and it also works very well. While many simple games are the result of a lack of time and effort, that does not seem to be anywhere near the case here. Sea of Golds simple look fits perfectly with the underwater theme. Most of the look is accomplished through the use of deep sea blues and greens, though colour does show up when it comes to bonuses and the undersea life. A great effort on this front – it really shows what GamesOS can do when they want to.

When it comes to usability this game is also quite simple, and like with the design it works quite well. Without any major options, other than the autoplay section, the game avoids both clutter and bloat. Playing and understanding this game is instant, which is great for those of us without a lot of time. We do miss the inclusion of graphics options in this game, as we often do, as this means that the game might not play well on older or less powerful devices. This problem, however, might be overcome due to the simple nature of the game design – you device should have to be very old or very under-powered to not offer a decent chance at running Sea of Gold well.

Rating:

A simple game, but one which works with this. Sea of Gold is not a game which will hold the attention of the more veteran pokie players for a huge amount of time, but those new and intermediate will usually find something within to keep them playing. Nice to look at, simple but basic bonus structure and low requirements make this game stand out above many in the pack. This is our first review of a GamesOS creation – here's hoping the rest reach the same level of quality.
