Gold Lab is the latest video pokie game from Quickspin set to be released on their gaming network on August the 16th. Quickspin is a young company coming from Sweden that managed to take over the hearts of many online gamblers by launching top of the line video pokie games, with unique themes and attractive bonus features. Some of their best pokies like Spinions, Big Bad Wolf and Razortooth, have become a top choice for many players and Gold Lab is just another great addition to that collection.
The theme of the game is made around a daring scientist and his laboratory, where he found the solution to create gold out of chemical compounds. This was a dream to many alchemists over the years, so even though it never brought success, we can at least see what it looks like on the reels of Gold Lab.
What We love
We love the great animations and symbols that are used on Gold Lab. The scientist animation on the left of the screen is really great and amusing, making the entire game more attractive and fun to play. We also like the fact that the minimum bet is set at only $0.10 per spin, even though there are 25 pay lines in total.
The detail we like the most about Gold Lab and all pokie games coming from Quickspin in general, is the bonus feature. We simply love to see a big number of wilds on the screen and it seems that every pokie game from Quickspin is mainly focused on extra wilds.
The bonus round in Gold Lab is interesting, triggered by 3 beaker symbols on reels 1, 3 and 4. We love that there are 4 different scatter beaker symbols and that each one can be turned to a Beaker wild symbol.
The re-spin awarded in the bonus feature when one of the scatter beakers is transformed to a wild beaker is very important as you get extra free spins, in that way increasing the total number of free spins to be won.
Also we love the fact that all of the four scatter beaker symbols can be transformed to extra wilds in the bonus round, leading to a big possible payout.
What we Do not Like
The only detail we don’t like in Gold Lab is the generally low payout the symbols have, including the high paying gemstone symbols. Base play wins are small so without a good bonus round your balance can easily shrink very fast.
Quickspin has a reputation for launching great video pokie games that have a big payout potential. With their latest release of Gold Lab that isn’t quite the case since the maximum payout in a single spin is set at 413 x total bet.
Still Gold Lab is a very decent mid variance video pokie game which can boost your balance in the long run if you are lucky enough to get several decent bonus features.
Even if the payouts aren’t very big, Gold Lab will be a very fun game to play, once it is released over the Quickspin network.
