Sails of Gold is powered by Play ‘N Go and is a 5 reel, 10 payline video slot which can be played on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 10p to £100 per spin. You are taken on a voyage of discovery with Christopher Columbus in search of faraway riches.

You must journey across the waves in search of the East Indies where you come across a New World of treasures. With a ship theme, symbols on the reels include the standard playing cards (A, K, Q, J and 10) as well as a compass, jewelled brooch and heraldic crest – the latter gives you 1,000 times your line stake if you manage to get 5 on a payline.

The most valuable symbol is Christopher Columbus himself as he is the wild – 5 on a payline will reward you with 5,000 times your line stake. He also substitutes for all symbols except the scatter – the scatter is the ship with 3 of them on reels 1, 3 and 5 triggering the Free Spins feature.

Here you will begin with 10 free spins – more importantly, the gold turns gold and acts as an extra wild symbol for the duration of the feature. If you manage to get 3 more ships on a free spin, you will get an additional 10 free spins – there’s no limit to how many free spins you can win but it will stop as soon as you’ve won the maximum, 250,000 coins.

Sails of Gold is a low to medium variance offering with plenty of smaller wins in the base game and Free Spins feature. There’s up to 5,000 times your bet to be won on every single spin so there’s definitely potential. All in all, it’s a decent game from Play ‘N Go but I prefer Golden Caravan – it was released at the same time and is highly volatile. If you want to sail to seas to look for treasure, Novomatic’s Red Lady is a great option.
