Join the gurus and snake charmers in Golden Cobras Deluxe, an Indian-themed slot from Novomatic. It’s a highly volatile 5 reel, 10 payline slot that comes with an explosive free spins feature that can deliver between 15 and 25 free spins as well as potentially amazing multipliers that can top 25x. Head east from between 10p and £50 per spin.
As far as visuals go, Golden Cobras Deluxe is pretty solid, especially for a Novomatic slot – the cartoon style images include the usual playing cards alongside elephants, the Taj Mahal and a princess. The soundtrack is the standard Novomatic bangs and crashes embellished with the odd Indian inspired melody. There’s nothing spectacular on show but it does the job perfectly adequately.
Like many video slots in the Novomatic catalogue, the variance in Golden Cobras Deluxe is on the high side – the likeliest way to charm a big win will come via the Free Games feature which is triggered when you land 3 or more of the snake basket scatter symbol anywhere on the reels.
As well as pocketing a payout of 15, 20 or 25 times your total stake you’ll also be awarded 15, 20 or 25 free spins. That in itself would be a decent enough haul but there are some extra treats on offer here too in the form of bonus multipliers which are awarded when the guru wild symbol lands during the free spins.
Trigger the feature with 3 scatters and 3x and 5x multipliers are on offer. Trigger it with 4 and it’s 3x, 5x and 10x. Get the full complement of 5 and a 25x multiplier is added to the selection too which can really get the coins flowing.
While the feature is your best bet there are decent prizes on offer in the base game. Land 5 of the wild guru in a single payline for a 5,000 coin payout.
The volatile Golden Cobras Deluxe is a pretty simple slot – there’s only 1 bonus feature and it’s not the easiest to trigger. It’s a good one though and can be worth the wait though – hit those multipliers hard during the feature and these cobras can indeed be golden. I also recommend Playtech’s Sultan’s Gold which has a similar theme (and is also highly volatile).
