Gameplay

Ecuador gold clearly references to the equatorial country of the same name. However, this slot game wants to take you on an adventure in search of the treasures that any pre-Colombian civilisations have left behind. These civilisations where known for their abundance of gold. You can get your share on this slot game with great graphics, plenty of entertaining features and great win potential. The reels, starting out with a 6×4 structure cascade rather than spin and can expand after consecutive wins. Symbols on the reels in the form of pre-Colombian imagery can appear in different sizes. At the start of the base game you have 4,096 win ways that can expand to no less than 262,144 after the reels have expanded.

Special Features

Cascading and Expanding Reels

Ecuador gold has the Avalanche or Cascading Reels feature. This means that symbols fall rather than spin into place on the reels. The word drop rather than spin might for that reason be more accurate. When you hit a winning combination, the winning symbols explode and disappear to make place for new once and an extra row is added. If you manage to hit several consecutive wins, the grid can expand to 8 rows. In addition to expanding reels, the symbols on the reels can expand as well. All symbols can appear in super, mega and epic size in addition to their standard size of one position on the grid. A super size symbol takes 2×2 positions on the grid, mega size 3×3 and epic size symbols 4×4.

Wild symbols

Wild symbols fulfil their usual slot game function of being able to substitute a symbol to increase your chances for a winning combination. In addition to their standard appearance, Wild symbols can also appear as Ghosting Wilds on reels 3,4,5 and 6. This means that the Wild symbol can move a random number of steps in any direction leaving a trail of Wild symbols behind. If the Ghosting Wild hits a Colossal symbol sized 2×2, 3×3 or 4×4, it turns the whole symbol wild.

Free Spins Bonus Game

You trigger Free Spins mode, or Free Drops as it is called on this game, by playing at least 3 Scatter symbols on the reels in one round. Three Scatter symbols award you 10 free spins and you win 25 free spins or free drops when you play 6 Scatters on the reels in one round.

Verdict

Ecuador Gold is a well-designed game with excellent graphics that oozes great adventure. In addition to high-quality imagery, the slot has plenty of features to keep you entertained. The Cascading reels are not only pleasing to the eye, the feature also increases your win chances as winning symbols disappear to make room for new ones within the same spin or drop.
