Golden Caravan by Play'n Go is a classic slot machine with 5 reels and 10 paylines. It features free spins, a Wild symbol, a gambling game and you can play for free. The minimum number of symbols in a winning combination is two.
The Rules of the Golden Caravan Slot
Playing the slot machine is about getting a set of identical symbols on the active paylines after you set the reels going. Before starting the spin by clicking the Spin button, you need to determine the bet size. You have to set the value of three options:
- The number of active lines
- The bet for one line
- The value of one coin
There can be 1 to 10 active lines, the bet per line can range from 1 to 5 coins. You can change their number step-by-step by clicking the +/- buttons next to the Coins and Lines panel.
The coin denomination changes by clicking the Coin Value button. The developers offer 9 options of the coin value: from 0.01 to 1 of the conventional game credit.
If you don't feel like dealing with the bet size all the time and you wish to play big, you can use the Bet Max button. If you hit it, the bet level instantly goes up to the maximum: 10 lines with a 5-coin bet per line. Unlike many other slots, this button, when clicked, does not automatically start the reels spinning.
If you don't want to constantly click the Spin button, you can use the Autoplay feature. It can set the number of auto spins (from 10 to 50 with 5 options) and the conditions of their termination. This is either any win or achieving a previously specified level (winning or losing a certain amount). Also, the auto spins will stop if your account has insufficient funds to play with the bet you have set.
Directly under the reels, you can see three windows: Coins, Win (which has no heading) and Bet. They show the balance, the bet and, if you are lucky, your winnings in coins. If you look at the bottom of the game window, the same features — Balance, Bet and Win are indicated in gaming credits. The number of your credits before the game starts is always the same: 250. But the number of coins can vary depending on the coin value set by you.
Symbols and Multipliers of the Golden Caravan slot
There are both Wild and Scatter symbols in the Golden Caravan slot. The same icon, the Camel with a load, performs these functions. Three pictures of the Camel, activate a sequence of ten free spins with a winnings multiplier.
If three pictures of the Camel land on the reels during free spins:
- The series of ten free spins starts anew
- The multiplier of the ordinary winning, initially equal to two, will increase by one each time
As developers report, the maximum prize in the sequence of free spins can reach 250,000 coins.
During free spins, the Camel also plays the role of the Wild symbol. It replaces other pictures to make winning combinations.
The Camel picture appears on reels No. 1, 3 and 5 only.
In the main game, the picture of a Man in medieval European clothes plays the role of the Wild symbol.
The Golden Caravan slot comes with 9 standard symbols, four of which are themed to driving caravans through the desert and five of them feature playing cards of the highest denomination, from Ace (A) to ten. Cards win you from 200 to 100 for a combination of five symbols and from 20 to 10 for a combination of three. Pictures are better-paying:
- Marco Polo - 5,000, 1,000, 100, and 10
- The Caravan Man - 2,000, 200, 50, and 5
- The Treasure Chest - 750, 100, 25, and 5
- The Oasis - 500, 75, 20, and 5 times your bet
All pictures form a winning combination, which is made up of at least two symbols. Winning combinations are from left to right, starting with the first reel. You can click on the Paytable button (in the right of the control panel) to see the Paytable and all the game rules in the graphic mode.
There is also a traditional gambling game in the Golden Caravan slot by Play´n Go. With any win, both the Bet Max and Autoplay buttons turn into the Gamble and Collect buttons, respectively. The latter serves to cancel the risk game, the former, to accept it. In the risk game you have to guess either the colour or the suit of the hidden card, which will be dealt by the dealer after you make your choice. If guessed correctly, the colour doubles your winnings and the right guess of the suit quadruples them. If you get them wrong, your winnings are lost.
You can make up to five attempts at a guess. The limit of potential winnings is at 2,500 coins.
The Golden Caravan slot is a classic variant of a 5-reel slot machine. It has no bonus game, but everything else is perfect and you can confidently say that the multipliers are high. So, playing this one-armed bandit is a completely justified decision.
In the bottom left corner, you can see three small buttons with the images of:
