Gold Rush Express Game Background

Founded in 2020, the Las Vegas-based slots developer is a relative newcomer to the iGaming industry with only a few slot games to its name ( although its founding members have a long and storied history working for such luminaries as SpinPlay Games). In their own words, "Area Vegas is an up-and-coming studio that is dedicated to giving players a premium gaming experience". This philosophy is in full swing in slots like the mythology-themed Area Link Phoenix slot that uses the studio's proprietary hold and respin game mechanic!

Gold Rush Express Game Design

Gold Rush Express is a 5-reel, 3-row online casino game with 20 paylines and a potential maximum win of 5,000x the stake. The aim is to land winning symbol combinations with the help of the various bonus features and symbols.

The action occurs on a wooden rail track high above a mountain range that sparkles with gold nuggets. A gilded locomotive (complete with a carriage, gold cart, and engine) exits the tunnel on the left. The idea is to fill the cart with sufficient gold to make the train enter the tunnel on the right. The background shows a bright blue sky. The game grid is against the rail track supports. Each reel position has a rich blue background. Symbols comprise colourful playing cards, gold nuggets, other paraphernalia of the prospecting trade, and more. The game logo is in the top-left. Below are the 4 jackpots players can win: Mini, Minor, Major or Grand.

The soundtrack is bouncy and upbeat, with a twangy guitar riff that perfectly complements the visuals. Accompanying the action are the ambient audio effects when spinning the reels, landing symbol combinations, unlocking features, etc.

Gold Rush Express Slot Mobile

All the on-site online slot games are fully playable on multiple devices like desktops, mobiles and smartphones; this includes Gold Rush Express. All that's needed is a Lottomart account and a safe and secure internet connection or mobile data.

Gold Rush Express Slot Symbols

The low-value symbols are the wood cut-styled 10 - A playing cards; these payout 1x the stake for 5-of-a-kind on the reels; the high-value symbols comprise lanterns, shovels, picks, gold bags and gold bars; these have a 2x - 5x stake payout.

The Gold Rush Express slot also has its share of bonus symbols. The Wild symbol (represented by the game logo) can substitute for all paying symbols. The Gold Nugget symbol can trigger the Pick feature. The TNT Scatter can trigger the Free Spins bonus round. The Rush Express symbols (represented by different coloured trains) can play a key part in the Rush Express feature. Also involved in the feature are the Gold Train and Bell icons.

Gold Rush Express Slot Bonus Features

The Gold Rush Express slot has several bonus features, most centred around the gold prospecting theme.

Pick Feature

Nugget symbols can randomly trigger the Pick feature at the end of any base game spin that doesn’t trigger the Free Spins or Rush Express features. Matching 3 Nugget symbols wins the respective prize.

Free Spins

Landing 3+ TNT Scatter symbols awards 10 free spins; there's a higher chance of triggering the Rush Express feature during this bonus round.

Rush Express Feature

Landing at least 1 Rush Express symbol (coloured trains or gold nuggets) on reels 1 - 4 and a Bell or Gold Train symbol on reel 5 triggers the feature. First, the Bell or Gold Train symbols collect the values of any Gold Nuggets in view, with the latter applying a 10x multiplier to the final value amount.

When the feature gets triggered by a Train symbol and a Bell or Gold Train symbol, a mini train set appears on the track; the train car's colour corresponds to one on the Train symbol that helped trigger the feature. The train cars then drop cash prizes onto the Train symbol. These then get collected by the Bell or the Gold Train symbol (the latter again applying a 10x multiplier) to the final value amount. The final train car can also award either a multiplier or the corresponding coloured jackpot: Mini (green), Minor (blue), Major (purple) and Grand (red), the latter awarding the maximum 5,000x the stake.

Gold Rush Express Slot Summary

Gold Rush Express is a unique take on the gold prospecting theme, taking place not in a mine but in a gold-laden locomotive crossing a railway track in the mountains. Add to this a bright and airy visual presentation, an upbeat honky-tonk soundtrack, and multiple bonus features, and you have a brilliantly fun slot game!

If gold prospecting-themed slots are your bag, you might also want to try Blueprint Gaming's Dynamite Riches Megaways or Pragmatic Play's Drill That Gold!
