Goldaur Guardians slot is a July 2020 release from game Microgaming/Alchemy Gaming. It takes on the theme of Elves and Pixies, employing the Hyperspins function which players may have seen before in slots such of Book of Oz, allowing you to respin certain reels for a fixed price. An interesting slot with an exciting but risky base game, does it live up to the high expectations of Alchemy Gaming? Read on for the full Goldaur Guardians slot review to see what we made of the game.
Goldaur Guardians looks and sounds the part. However, it’s low 1000x maximum win isn’t too appealing. The Hyperspins adds a lot to the base game and makes it very tempting indeed to respin the reels if you get 2 Scatters. However, it’s really pretty risky doing so as your balance can be eaten quickly for no return, great if the 3rd Scatter lands quickly of course though!
- Hyperspins Feature Allows Individual Reel Respins
- Excellent Graphics and Sound
- Low Max Win
- Lack of Bonus Features
Goldaur Guardians Slot Stats
How it Pays and Plays
Goldaur Guardians is a slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines. Its volatility is unknown at time of writing, however with the max win of just 1000x we would expect it to be on the medium to low side of things.
It has a minimum bet of 0.2 coins up to 100 coins of whichever currency you play with. So it’s suitable for lower stakes players and fairly high rollers alike.
Symbols, Sound and Graphics
Spinning the reels of Goldaur Guardians creates a noise like the sound of a chord on a harp followed by Pixie wings flapping whilst other the music is suitably fantasy themed. It goes together well with the game and adds nicely to the atmosphere you feel they were trying to create at Alchemy Gaming.
The symbols include the four Goldaur Guardians characters as the premiums. These are, from highest to lowest value, Oberon (15x for 5 of a kind), Diana (4x), Lila (2.5x) and Alanelo (2x).
The lower paying symbols are the pixie symbols, there are 4 of them, red, green, yellow and blue, just like the Goldaur Guardians. They will pay from 1.75x to just 1x for 5 of a kind.
The Wild symbols are a stylish golden “W” and will award 50x if you get a line of 5.
Scatter symbols are Golden Trees which look pretty fantastical, they will trigger the free spins bonus for 3 placed anywhere and will also give you 100x if you bag a line of 5.
Hyperspins Respin Feature
The respin feature allows you to respin individual reels for a set price. Each reel will have a price attached to it at the bottom. This is something you would look to do if you had perhaps 2 Scatters land in and you want to try for a 3rd to trigger the free spins, or perhaps if you had just one more symbol on reel 2 to get to make a line of 5 premiums like Oberon. The higher the value of the potential win the higher the price will be to spin the reel though. This is clearly a pretty risky feature as it can be easy to get carried away pressing the respin button, so just be careful not to drain your balance too rapidly!
The free spins are awarded when landing 3,4 or 5 Scatters. You’ll get 5, 7 or 10 free spins respectively for these. The first 2 reels will then be taken up by guardian symbols and the next 3 reels become a colossal reel, so you want to land in either the guardian symbol you have on reels 1 and 2 or get Wilds.
