Gold Macdonald is a 5 reel slot, with 15 paylines, however it’s way more unique than it sounds. The slot is mFortune’s first 3-D game, meaning that the reels and symbols are all well, 3-D, duh. instead of spinning the symbols appear after being ‘watered’ and then disappear when you re-spin.
Players can choose how many paylines to play below the reels, and can adjust their wager size to suit. The minimum bet is 2p, and there’s a maximum of £300 (across all 15 paylines). This means the game is great for every type of player as everyone has the option of going big or nicely trundling along. The progressive jackpot up, which has currently started off at just over £2,000, adds excitement to the game and is sure to boost it’s popularity.
Players can also choose to use the autospin feature when play Gold MacDonald. This allows you to sit back and watch the game unfold, and you can set it to spin between 10 and 99 times on your behalf. You can also set certain limits which stop the autospin from playing, for example when your credit drops below or exceeds a specific amount.
Naturally, the symbols in the game are largely farmyard animals, and these offer anything between 15x and 250x. However, Gold MacDonald also grows some fruit on his farm. The apple and the slightly more random, watermelon symbols offer some big wins, with five watermelons offering a huge 500x multiplier.
The game also features some more special symbols. The geese with the golden egg is the progressive jackpot symbol – line up five of these to grab yourself the top prize. Gold Macdonald also features wild and scatter symbols. Wilds are symbolized by the farmer’s garden gnome and they’ll replace any other symbol in a winning payline. Plus, five of these in a row pay out the biggest multiplier in the game, 2000x!
The scatter symbols offer up to 9 free spins and are illustrated with the all important watering can. Three watering cans will grant you 5 free spins, whilst 5 watering cans will reward you with the full 9.
mFortune always throw in a mini game to shake things up and Gold MacDonald has it’s very own Growing For Gold round. The round is activated when you collect three or more of the chicken coop symbols, and the more symbols you collect the higher the multipliers go in the game.
The game itself is a bit like a game of snakes and ladders. Spin the windmill to send farmer Gold MacDonald up the trail, but watch out for traps which will end the game. Each ‘safe’ space you land on gives a certain multiplier, and so long as you keep landing on these you can carry on spinning until you reach the treasure at the end.
As this slot is mFortune’s first foray into 3-D graphics, we have to say we’re very impressed. The graphics are beautiful; they’ve deviated away from the regular mFortune cartoon graphics which can sometimes seem a bit busy, and instead offer simple, clean characters that seem modern and fresh (not to mentioned very cute!).
The background music is whimsical and very easy to listen to, but as with all slots, the repetative nature will have you hitting that mute button after a while.
We love the fanfare of Gold MacDonald, as every single win is celebrated with an encouraging phrase and we love the way the tiles turn golden and animated.
Gold MacDonald is available to download for both Android and iOS. iPhone users can find the game using the App Store, and Android users can visit the mFortune website to have the game sent to them via SMS. The slot is quick to load and we haven’t experienced it ever being slow. This is because mFortune design all their games to take up as little space on your phone as possible – we know how precious a phone’s memory can be!
