Join us as we search the jungle from tree to tree for the Golden City and hopefully pick up lots of cash prizes along the way!

Special Features

The first feature to talk about is the obligatory Wild symbol. This symbol is illustrated by a Golden Totem and replaces all other symbols apart from the Bonus symbol to help form winning combinations. It comes stacked on the reels to further boost your chances of landing a big cash prize.

The Golden City features a range of gemstones and masks symbols that appear on the reels as you play. The most lucrative symbol to keep an eye out for is the Blue Totem Mask as it pays out a reasonable 25X your wager for landing 5 on a payline.

Whenever you form a win in the game then all winning symbols will be removed to allow new symbols to drop in from above. The only symbol that does not get removed is the Wild as it will become sticky and remain in place instead. This process continues until there are no new winning combinations on the reels which makes it possible to win again and again here.

The Scatter symbol is represented by an intricate gold design and appears only on reels 1, 3, and 5 in the main game. Land 3 of theses symbols simultaneously to trigger the special Trail Bonus Game feature. In this exciting bonus game, you will get to explore the jungle and collect and trigger features as you move along. Items up for collection include cash prizes, keys, as as well as Free Spins. As soon as you have gathered 3 keys then you will trigger the Prize Pyramid bonus game where you get to climb steps that lead to a huge pyramid. If you are lucky enough to make it to the top then you will be given the chance to spin a wheel where you can win a massive 1,000X your bet!

The Free Spins bonus round is triggered when you land on the start square while in the Trail Bonus Game. All collected Free Spins are then played out with Scatters that land here now offering instant cash prizes. The value of the cash prizes is dependent on what you've collected during the Trail Bonus Game.

Theme, Graphics and Sound

Presentation-wise, this game features highly stylish graphics and is full of bright colours and intricate details as it takes place in front of a golden pyramid with golden totems propping up the reels. It sure feels like a Golden City that’s for sure! Symbols in the game are beautifully designed and consist of a range of different coloured Totem Masks along with a handful of sparkling gems. A special mention for the animations as symbols glisten brightly on the reels and explode in dramatic fashion when part of a winning combination. The Trail Bonus Game is a particular highlight as you get to roll a dice and gather keys and cash prizes along the way. It plays like an entirely different game and really adds to the gameplay.

The music features a tribal-based soundtrack with lots of jungle noises and panpipe sound effects. It fits in really well with the Adventure theme of the game

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

Our Verdict on The Golden City

This game is produced by stellar software studio iSoftBet and is a mildly entertaining jungle adventure. It features cracking visuals, an atmospheric soundtrack, along with a selection of fun bonus features to enjoy. The Trail Bonus Game is the standout feature here as you get to roll a dice to collect Cash Prizes, Keys, and Free Spins. It is also here where you can win the top prize which is a whopping 1,606X your bet via the Prize Pyramid feature. Sadly, we never made it to the summit of the pyramid but did bag ourselves a few decent cash rewards in the Free Spins Bonus Game thanks to the lucrative Scatter symbol. For variance, I would say this game is between Medium and High so don’t expect to win a huge cash payout right away here.
