Set your stake – Gold Strike has twenty win lines. Click the STAKE/LINE ‘up’ and ‘down’ arrow buttons to increase or decrease the size of your stake per line. Click the PAYTABLE button to view the win line payouts for each symbol at the currently selected stake.
Start the game – Click ‘SPIN’ to start your game. There is an optional auto play function in the game that, if selected, will start each spin automatically until something occurs in the game that requires player intervention. Click ‘AUTO PLAY’ and then click one of the options from the pop up list to select your desired number of auto spins. If you wish to cancel auto play during your auto spins click the ‘STOP AUTO PLAY’ button which will appear where the ‘AUTO PLAY’ button was previously.
Enabling the Gamble Feature – Before starting a game, and while a game is not in progress, you can choose whether to gamble any wins in the optional gamble feature. Click the orange gamble button and then click one of the options from the pop up list. Choose ‘GAMBLE ALL WINS’ to activate the gamble feature for all wins. Choose ‘GAMBLE OFF’ to disable the gamble feature. Choose one of the other options to gamble wins only above the stated value. Your chosen gamble option will remain active for subsequent games or until you choose to change it.
Win lines and scatter wins – To win you must match three or more reel symbols on a win line, or have three or more Dynamite scatter symbols anywhere in view. All line pay symbols must appear on a win line and on consecutive reels beginning with the far left reel. Only the highest win is paid on each win line. Coinciding wins on different pay lines are added. Scatter wins and bonus wins are added to pay line wins.
Wild symbol – The Sheriff’s Badge symbol is wild, and substitutes for any symbol except the Dynamite scatter symbol.
Lock ‘N’ Load – Any reel win triggers the ‘Lock ‘N’ Load’ feature. All winning symbols lock in place and the reels keep spinning until the total win ceases to improve.
Tin Can Alley Bonus – Six or more Dynamite scatter symbols in view triggers the Tin Can Alley Bonus. Select one of the cans to reveal a cash prize, and hope to find a golden nugget.
Lucky Strike Bonus – Finding the ‘Lucky Strike’ symbol under your chosen can in the Tin Can Alley Bonus triggers the Lucky Strike Bonus. One or more ‘Lucky Strike’ symbols are hidden on the prospector’s map. Click one of the squares to reveal either a ‘Lucky Strike’ symbol or an ‘X’. Finding an ‘X’ ends the bonus.
