Sails of Gold is an adventure slot, developed by Play’n Go. It has five reels and 10 paylines, with bets starting from just 1p per payline. Upon the glorious backdrop of the sunset, there are a variety of prizes up for grabs with Christopher Columbus himself. From wilds to free spins, which can be re-triggered, there is plenty to explore within this slot game.
Set sail with one of history’s most famous explorers. Columbus may be known as the man who ‘discovered America’, but in the Sails of Gold slot, he will lead you toward the discovery of some bonuses which are well worth exploring.
Place Your Bet
You have quite a lot of freedom when it comes to placing your bet in the Sails of Gold slot. To begin with, there are 10 paylines, but it is your decision whether to play them all, or just a selection of them.
The minimum coin bet per payline is 1p, with a maximum of £1. The figure you choose here will be multiplied by the number of paylines you keep active for your game.
To add extra weight to your bet, there is the option to add extra coins to each payline. Automatically set to 1, it can be increased up to 5 if you wish. Whichever value you choose will be multiplied by the rest of the bet to create your total stake per spin.
You can check up on the value of your total bet at the bottom of the game, and make sure that it is a suitable amount for you.
Once you’re all sorted, you can set sail by hitting the spin button. Let the adventure begin!
Back in 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue, with just the essentials. It’s these special things he brought with him which are worth the most in Sails of Gold.
With the higher-value symbols, you only need to match two or more to win. With the lower-value symbols, you will need three or more. In both cases, the best and biggest payouts come from matching five identical symbols on an active payline.
A shield depicting a coat of arms with dragons and castles is worth the most. Landing five of these all the way along an active payline could award you a huge 1000 times your line bet value!
Next is a bejewelled item which looks like it may help with direction. We’re not sure, but it looks pretty, with gold, red and blue shining out. Five of these lovely symbols on a payline can get you 500 times your line bet.
The gold-plated compass has top payout values of up to 250 times your line bet, should you be lucky enough to land a payline filled with them.
Lower-value symbols in Sails of Gold are the card values from 10 up to Ace. Each of them has a little compass image behind them, in keeping with the theme. Maximum payouts range from 100 to 150 times your line bet for matching five of a kind.
Sailing Through Bonuses
Keep a weather eye out for three special features designed to help you maximise your treasures on this expedition.
The icon with Christopher Columbus holding his telescope is the Sails of Gold wild. This wild symbol can substitute for any of the standard symbols in play, which, with a lucky landing could help you create some extra winning matches.
You can also win by matching multiple Wilds on a payline. Matching between two and five could award you from 10 to 5000 times your line bet. Yes, that is a jackpot of five thousand times your bet amount!
The ship upon a bright blue sea and clear skies is the scatter symbol. Landing three of these anywhere on the reels in a single spin can trigger the free spins. Ten of them, in fact!
Throughout your free spins, a golden ship on a sunset background will become the Wild symbol and can substitute for all other symbols.
You also have the potential to re-trigger another ten free spins if you land another three ships during a free spin.
With every winning combination in standard play, you will have the option to gamble or collect your winnings.
If you choose to gamble, you will need to correctly guess the card to be turned over. A correct guess of the colour will double your prize, while getting the suit right will multiply it by four.
Correct guesses will allow you to guess again, with the possibility of multiplying your winnings even further.
If, however, you guess incorrectly at any point, you will lose all winnings from that round. Be thoughtful of when you choose to gamble, as you wouldn’t want to lose all of your winnings through an incorrect bet.

Sails of Gold has a fantastic theme, and with lovely graphics, is a dream to play. While the features aren’t quite as ground-breaking as Columbus’ discoveries, they are enough to rock the boat and bring you some goodies.
The RTP of the Sails of Gold slot is 96.25% and it has a low to medium variance.
