Gold Factory Jackpots Mega Moolah Review
The original Gold Factory game was released over a decade ago. It was a pretty successful title back then and featured many interesting quirks to keep players entertained. Various features and bonuses meant plenty of action along the way.
Fast forward to today and Gold Factory joins the ranks of other titles that are now part of the Mega Moolah series. Unfortunately, bringing the game into this arena has meant stripping back a lot of what made it a fun slot back in the day.
Gold Factory Jackpots Mega Moolah retains many of the same audio-visual elements from the original version. Some of the symbols have changed but the overall feel is still very similar. The main protagonist is either a flamboyant inventor or he may have escaped from a fabulous Victorian circus—we aren't exactly sure.
He is joined by a young lad who may or may not be his apprentice or a kid that got lost on a visit to the factory. Think of an industrial version of Willy Wonka with gold instead of chocolate and you'll get the overall idea.
Whatever the idea was, Aurum Signature Studios has executed it very well. The graphics are clean and crisp with a fun, if not slightly annoying, soundtrack that will keep you skipping merrily through this hazardous but potentially valuable money-making machine.
Anyone who has ever played a slot machine before we'll get the hang of this title very quickly. Sometimes that's a good thing. Personally, we like it when a game keeps us guessing as we explore the possibilities.
But you aren't going to get that with Gold Factory Jackpots Mega Moolah. It is a straightforward 5x3 with 25 pay lines. Wins run from left to right with no fancy mechanics but the addition of the lucrative wild symbols does add a certain something to the game.
If the RTP is important to you, then you are probably not going to love this game. 93.42% is on the low side. But when you take into account that about 5% of that is made up by the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot, the rest of the game comes in at around 88%.
However, there is a very low volatility setting on this game which will allow for lots of wins to spin around regularly. They will be on the low side but they'll keep the balance topped up as you hope to hear that jackpot bell toll.
There is a huge win potential both thanks to the jackpot and within the base game as well so there is plenty to look forward to there. The wild symbols can double any win it creates with the potential of 15,000x the stake.
Gold Factory Jackpots Mega Moolah is a fun and light-hearted twist on the popular steampunk theme. It's well presented and the payouts are regular. And we can't ignore the fact that there is a multi-million jackpot on offer as well.
Unfortunately, taking away all of the features that made the original game so likeable hasn't done this updated version any favours. If you're hoping to hit the big time, then it's definitely worth a spin. But if you're not there for Mega Moolah, then go for the original.
