Review of the Golden Dollars

Theme and plot of the story

Golden Dollars is a slot machine that is pretty standard in design. Aside from a general fascination in currency, gold, and other wealth-related symbols such as cauldrons full of money, dice, and diamond-encrusted dollar signs, there isn’t much to the piece.

If you’re looking for slot machine ideas, this is a really uninteresting and unoriginal choice. However, slots are a type of gambling, and gold bricks and gold crowns makes a certain amount of sense.

Graphics, sounds, and animations are all included.

The designs are uninspiring, yet they serve their purpose well, much like the concept. The animations are how you would expect them to be, and the symbols are well-drawn and legible.

However, everything seems to be fairly glitzy and empty. While the reels have an empty black backdrop, the whole slot is hovering in the front of a curtain of abstract lights in the background of the game.

The game suffers from a lack of atmosphere, which is exacerbated by the fact that the music and sound effects do little to help.


When it comes to Ainsworth slot machines, the gameplay is typical. The company advertises their jackpot system, but then fails to incorporate the jackpots properly, making the jackpots appear like afterthoughts rather than the objective of a slot machine like this.

There are twenty-five victory lines in the default game, which is played on a regular five-by-three grid. This is made more interesting by a variety of distinctive symbols and features (see below for details).

Wilds, bonuses, and free spins are all included in this game.

Similarly to other Ainsworth games, the unique symbols, although straightforward to use while playing, are rather difficult to comprehend when explaining why they are used.

Begin with the most basic of the symbols, the dollar sign, which serves as a Wild symbol, substituting for all other symbols except for the other special symbols, and then on to the more complicated symbols.

If you hit six or more of the Diamond symbols in a row, you will be eligible to participate in the Golden Cash Feature. If you strike any Diamonds during this feature (including those on the triggering spin), they will be locked in place until the function is completed. Activating this bonus awards you three free spins, which are re-activated every time you land another Diamond symbol on the reels.

During the Golden Cash feature, you do not get any payouts for winning combinations, but after the feature is over, every Diamond symbol pays you between one and fifty times your stake every spin.

When you get three of the Free Game symbols on a single play, you will be awarded eight free spins. In addition, during the free spins, the ‘1 Free Game’ symbol is added to the reels, and each time it appears anywhere on the reels, it will add a spin to your counter.

When the Coin symbols appear on the screen, they all trigger a small, minor, or major bonus.

The Additional Bonuses Golden Cash feature is triggered randomly and plays similarly to Golden Cash. You begin with the center three reels completely covered with diamonds, which is a significant distinction from most other games. During this bonus, if you fill all of the spaces with Diamonds, you will win the jackpot for the Grand Prize.

Bet sizes, return on investment (RTI), and variance

When it comes to Golden Dollars, volatility is strong, which corresponds nicely with our favorite techniques.

The return to player for this game is 94.34 percent, which is a little lower than the 96 percent we use as a benchmark for success. A considerable negative impact on the game, which indicates that the game would have to be very strong in order to get a recommendation.

We were able to place bets on Golden Dollars on a site that allowed us to place bets ranging from £1.00 per spin to a maximum stake of £/$/€40.00. This is a rather restricted spectrum of players that eliminates both high rollers and those with the smallest bankrolls. However, depending on whatever sites you choose to play on, you may discover that your results vary.


Golden Dollars is a mediocre game with a mediocre story. Even while it is not horrible by most metrics (it does have a poor return on investment), it fails to thrill due to its unrelentingly pedestrial approach to game development.
