Versailles Gold Features the World Famous Palace
Versailles Gold takes the player into this famous palace of the royal family and the aristocracy of France, in the days of the luxury and lavishness symbolic of Versailles. There are five reels with ten pay lines in this game, developed by Euro Games Technology.
The backdrop is the Versailles palace, with pathways through the gardens, and blue skies above. There is an emphasis on gold and splendour in Versailles Gold slot game, with a golden arch over the decorated reels, and the background of the screen a pale gold. The graphics are distinctive, and the symbols are regal, with a king and a lavishly adorned golden carriage, with a queen and a cardinal. There is also a golden Jewel symbol that acts as both the Scatter and the Wild. The Jewel Wild can substitute for all other symbols in a winning combination, with no exceptions. Five of the Wilds appearing on a pay line will win you a good payout. The sound effects sound fairly classical and fitting.
The King and Queen the Most Valuable Symbols
The King himself is the most valuable symbol in Versailles Gold, and you will win a substantial number of coins if you find five Kings on an active pay line. The queen also is one of the high value symbols, and will give you a good payout for five appearing on the pay lines. The cardinal is the next most valuable, with the golden carriage just behind. The classic playing cards from ten to Ace make up the lower paying symbols.
The Free Spins Round with Expanding Wilds
If you manage to find three or more Scatters on one spin, you will trigger the Free Spins bonus round. You will be given twelve free spins. EGT has not allowed for any multipliers in this bonus round, but you will find an expanding symbol. If the special expanding symbol does appear, it will cover all of the positions on the same reel, and will pay off on all the active pay lines on that reel.
After every win in Versailles Gold you have the chance to play the Gamble feature. You activate this round by clicking on the Gamble button, which will take you to a new screen. Here there will be some playing cards lying face down. You try to guess the colour of one specific card, and if you guess correctly the amount of your win from the original spin will be doubled. You then have another chance to guess, and another chance to double your wins. If you guess incorrectly you will lose your original wins and have to leave the inner palace and go back to the main game.
The Jackpot Cards Bonus Round
Versailles Gold also features a jackpot round that can be triggered randomly at any point in the game. This jackpot round will show four mystery jackpots assigned to the four different card suits like clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades. When this round is activated, you will be taken to a new screen with twelve cards laid face down, and you have to select three of these cards. If you are lucky and the three cards have a matching suit, you will be awarded the jackpot that corresponds to that suit. Certainly your chances are increased by higher wagers placed in the main game, and then perhaps you will win a reward fit for a king.
