Whenever I see the Quick Hit games in the casino, I go straight over and play on them. It always amazes me that it took me so long to get into them, because for years I used to just walk straight on by.
I wonder if other people did the same, or if it was just me missing out on these games for all that time?
Quick Hit Black Gold actually takes one feature straight from the classic Jackpot Party slots - when you hit the bonus, you get to pick boxes just like in Jackpot Party. It is different, but when you see it you will see that the screen looks the same.
With the box-picking, you get to discover what sort of free spins you get. Will you get all wins at 2x or maybe 3x on all your wins? Will you get locking wilds, or will you get the quick hit fever bonus?
With Black Gold, my favourite feature is definitely the free spins game. It's not easy to hit the bonus, but when you do you can get a really great win. The reason for that is the locking wilds. Get some of those early on in the free spins and you can be set up for win after win after win for the rest of the bonus.
The quick hit scatter pay is one of the big features of this game, just like with the other Quick Hit games, the adrenalin when these scatter symbols start coming in is intense. The sounds play such a big role in a slot game and they got it just right here - the timing and the musical notes creating the perfect atmosphere.
When you hit a Quick hit scatter, you get a nice payout of 10x spin even with just 5 of them on the screen, but once you get up to 9 scatters, you get a whopping 2500x your bet back in winnings. That's a huge win - imagine if you play $2 per spin, you would be heading home with a cool $5,000.
The Black Gold version of Quick Hit Slots is without doubt one of my favourites. The reason for that, is that it incorporates all the best features you expect in this brand of slot, but also includes some terrific extra features too.
One of my favourite aspects to this game, is the free spins bonus with locking wilds, which can give rise to some massive wins. For me, there is something really special about locking wilds that is incredibly exciting.
