Top Bally Technologies Gaming Casinos

It's not often we come across an industrial-themed game, and a good one at that. The amazing looking slot named Gears of Gold was brought to us by Bally Technologies, complete with elaborate special features such as potentially limitless free spins with multipliers, wheel bonuses, unusual Directional Wilds mechanic and one generous jackpot bonus with a maximum prize of $400,000.

Gears of Gold Slot Characteristics

Given that the games inspired by the Industrial Revolution usually tend to be kind off boring, truth be told, it was actually quite a nice surprise to see how much fun this Bally version actually is. Players uniformly agree about the superb quality of its unusual design imploring clunking gears, slight neon blue lightning and cute mechanical hearts and owls. Sound effects are especially nice and guarantee you'll remember the exciting rattle of this slot long after the play is over. What made Gears of Gold so appealing to gamblers are the advanced technological capabilities of Bally's Alpha Pro platform and the Pro Wheel cabinet with a huge bonus wheel gracing the top box.

Attractive visuals are backed up with an abundance of primary and secondary bonuses, where the most exciting and profitable one is the wheel bonus with multiple outcomes including two types of free spins, instant credit prizes and a wide-area progressive award. Only the jackpot bonus requires players to wager a maximum amount of 300 credits, but all other features are possible to hit from the get go and on any bet. Gameplay takes place both on the bottom set of reels in a 5x4 layout and 40 - line configuration, and on the top box wheel where the bonus plays out.

Gears of Gold Slot Features

Base game brings the excitement of Mystery positions and Directional Wilds. Prior to each regular spin, there will be Mystery positions on all reels that may all randomly transform into one and the same symbol, increasing player's chances to hit five of a kind combinations for big wins.

Furthermore, your winning opportunities are increased with the addition of the Directional Wilds mechanic that activates randomly and very frequently, every four spins on average.This feature is not so common among slots, but thankfully, Bally seems to be using it more often with each new title they create. When the Wild appears, it is marked by arrows that point in eight different directions. Any symbols found in the path of the arrows will also turn Wild for the duration.

The Wilds will also appear accompanied by a multiplier ranging from a x2 to x10, granted to players from the main wheel features along with an additional free spin for every win resulting from the directional Wilds. Theoretically, the free games can go on forever due to this mechanic, as long as the initial Wilds complete win lines.

The major feature of the Gears of Gold slot is the Wheel Bonus. Once it is initiated via three Gear symbols on the middle reels, players will get a single spin with a chance to win instant credit prizes ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 credits, two free spins features or a jackpot bonus game. To be viable for the progressive, you must bet max in the amount of 300 credits.

The multiplier gauge is placed at the bottom center of the top box, below the wheel and selects a randomly determined multiplier between 1x to 5x in value, at the start of each free spin. Players may hope to win about 44 times the total bet during this feature.


Gears of Gold gives plenty of reasons to get in gear and enjoy this steampunk favorite from Bally. Industrial strength features are some of the most fun and inventive ones that can be found among Bally slots, and a hefty jackpot spices up this steamy release with thrills and excitement.
