Gold Rus Gus was created by Bovada gaming and he is a lovable jolly miner who is working deep in the Wild West with his crew, looking for gold and special jewels that include diamonds and colorful gems. This game is super cute and colorful and although it is registered as having five reels and ten paylines, the reels are all bashed into action by Gus on each spin. Players can try out the game in fun format before placing real money bets. There are two progressive jackpots in the game that increase in value with every real money bet that is placed. The major jackpot is won by landing five of the pure diamonds on the screen and the mini jackpots can be won when five of a kind of one of the green or red gems are collected on the screen.
The bottle is wild and can substitute for other symbols on the reels helping to complete winning payouts. Three of the free spins icons that appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 trigger free spins. Players win either 5, 10 or 15 free spins with a multiplier of 2x,3x or 4x. The free spins can be triggered again, and the player wins them with the same multiplier as previously. This game includes a number of other bonus features including a map that can appear at random triggering a chance to win cash payouts based on the skill of the player. Gold nuggets appearing on the screen trigger instant rewards and when there is no winning payout from a spin, the lava respins can be triggered. Two to five volcanoes will erupt on the screen changing reels into solid lava and once finished Gus will come and break the lava and the player will benefit from new symbols appearing on the reels with new winning options. There is a treasure chest bonus game triggered when two of the key symbols appear on the screen and the player is invited to choose a treasure chest that will reveal a cash bonus. Gold Rush Gus is a lucrative game for players online and through mobile devices who like to enjoy some historical fun and persevere for the big wins.
