If you are a fan of Jack Hammer 1 and 2, Barber shop etc, you will adore this game! It includes lock and hold aspect. This means every symbol that completes a winning payline sticks until no more winning symbols connect to existing symbols. This is why even at minimum bet your return can be massive! The Detonator symbol is another great feature. If you collect under 6 you get a scatter bonus amount (based on bet size) for 6+ though you unlock the tin can alley bonus yeehaa! If you find the lucky strike symbol in the tin can alley bonus you cannot lose your coins won already! Once found you also enter the lucky strike bonus round. Again you pick crosses until you either lose or find lucky strike symbol this unlocks the gold mine feature. In this feature you select a detonator and can win a big cash prize or one of the smaller amounts but you don’t lose in this round!
In summary this is a very nice slot game with an array of features and no need to have a free spins round the bonus game is that extensive!
Here is my pros and cons of Gold Strike:
Lock and load.
Amazing bonus round.
Fun to play.
Not over run with symbols!
Funny sound effects and banjo music (only plays when you spin not continuously).
No free spins but doesn't really need one.
Graphics are a little cartoony but this adds to its appeal!
I give Gold Strike 7/10 because of its nice selection of features and even good base game.
