Free Golden City Slot Machine - Instant Play Game
Ever since the Spanish conquistadors set foot in Latin America, the dream of its gleaming Golden City filled our imaginations. Many expeditions scoured the jungles for El Dorado, but it remained ever elusive, as were its natives. That is, until today! We’re taking a look at IGT’s slot to see what kind of mysteries await us within this mysterious settlement. Is this fool’s gold, or is it the real deal? Read on to find out!
This game came out in 2014, and still looks quite good! Like with most IGT releases, the focus is more on the symbols themselves rather than the background image. Sure, it’s high quality foliage, but we doubt overgrown trees are going to get anyone excited. Not when you can see some gorgeous, if conservative animations instead! While it can’t give modern slots a run for their money, it’s far better than some older IGT games we’ve recently covered.
Golden City is played on a 5x4 board, with 40 flexible paylines which pay left to right only! And since they’re flexible, that means you can turn them on or off at will. It’s great for players on a budget, but we’d advise against it if possible. Less paylines means your odds of winning start dropping. And trust us, the RTP for this release is low enough! The slot is mechanically simple, but tuned to be very rewarding under the right circumstances. But said circumstances are quite hard to come by!
You can see how the user interface in newer games streamlined things compared to IGT’s older releases. Rather than changing your coin value and coins per payline separately, they’ve been rolled into one button. So you only need to tweak two things instead of three to set your total bet. You can wager a minimum of GBP 0.01, or you can go all out with a stake of GBP 40.00 per spin! This is a solid betting spread, one that should please high rollers and casual gamblers alike.
What we really like about Golden City is that you can win bin, no matter your bet level! You play it for a few cents or for forty quid per spin, and still walk away with that juicy 5000x jackpot! Of course, you’ll have to get a full screen of Wilds to achieve that, which is not very likely. But hey, a man can dream, can’t he? You don’t have to trust us when we tell you the odds aren’t in your favour. Trust the developers themselves, who state the RTP is set at 92%. This is four percent lower than the current 96% average, which is why we’re not recommending this slot.

Wilds can appear stacked and cover multiple positions in a single reel. They also substitute for all icons except for Scatters.
Collect three, four or five Scatters to win twenty, fifty or one hundred free spins, respectively. It’s possible to retrigger these extra turns and win even more free spins! You can get up to 600 extra turns for a single activation. After that, players will no longer be eligible for the re-spin. At least, until they trigger free spins again, at which point the counter resets.
To be perfectly honest, we didn’t expect this IGT release to win us over. Graphics are cool, and you can get away with some decent wins. But we were sure the gameplay would be far too simplistic for our liking. Fortunately, Golden City succeeded in pleasantly surprising us! We had a lot of fun playing this slot. It has just one major flaw: an RTP of 92%. Unless that number jumps up to 96%, we really cannot see ourselves recommended this game.
