The game is set on 3 reels with 5 rows, where gamers can match symbols on up to 10 fixed bet lines. Players can book a ticket to the mining expedition with as little as 0.10 credits and as many as 50. Note that it’s a highly volatile slot, although the 96% RTP should offer some hope.
Players must find at least three symbols on a pay line, starting from the leftmost reel, to form a winning combination. The 10-A card royals are the low-paying symbols, rewarding gamers up to 10x the stake for five of a kind.
The axe, train wagon, gas light, and gold piece are the high-paying symbols, rewarding gamers up to 250x the stake for five of a kind. Gold Fever also houses special dynamite symbols that reward cash in the Collect Feature during the Free Spins. These symbols can also pay 20x the bet for a 5-of-a-kind win.
In the meantime, the bearded miner himself is the game’s wild symbol. He only shows up during the bonus games, collecting all monetary values in the dynamite symbols before giving them to you. Remember, the wild symbol can also pay out as the premium icon of the game when you line up a winning combination with at least three of them.
But this brand-new Yggdrasil slot wouldn’t be complete without the Free Spins mode. Players receive 12, 15, and 20 bonus games after collecting 3, 4, and 5 scatter symbols. During the rounds, the brave miner can appear and gather all cash values from the dynamite symbols. If more than one miner shows up, they all take the available cash values. And yes, players can win additional 3, 12, 15, or 20 spins when 2, 3, 4, or 5 scatters land during the bonus rounds.
Stuart McCarthy, Yggdrasil Gaming’s Head of Product & Programs, commented: “One of the standout features of the YG Masters program is the diversity and breadth of our content, and we’re very pleased to roll out AceRun’s newest launch, Gold Fever. The exhilarating, straightforward gameplay offers players tantalising wins at every intersection during the bonus, making this a highly entertaining title.”
On their part, Jeroen van der Heijden, AceRun’s Head of Development, said: “Exploring the hugely popular mining theme, we’re able to bring our own flavour to the genre with this game with our highly detailed art style and easy-to-understand bonus feature. We’re excited about the potential of Gold Fever and further harnessing the power of the YG Masters program.”
Gold Fever becomes the newest addition to the YG Masters catalogue from AceRun. This is after the studio released Book HOTFIRE in late 2022.
