Golden Era is certainly a top choice for fans of older movies as Microgaming presents the glamorous life of movie stars during the boom of the industry. The five reels will show great symbols and wins can be obtained with the help of wild symbols. Getting three or more scatters will start a bonus game and players can choose if they want free spins or a picking game with prizes.
Microgaming takes players back to the days where movies were considered works of art, also known as the Golden Era, which is also the name of the slot machine we are talking about. This game is themed around the movie industry from decades ago and it has an elegant style to go along with its high-end graphics for the symbols and animations. The background shows a luxurious movie theater and the stage presents five reels with three rows. 15 lines are active at all times so players can determine the size of their bets by selecting the coin value and the number of coins to bet. To help make winning easier, the slot has wild symbols which are shown as the Golden Era logo and these will substitute for any needed symbol apart for the scatter. This one, which is an image of a clapperboard, will pay regardless of the positions when two or more appear. However, the main feature provided by the scatter symbols in this game is that they will trigger the Bonus selection window where players can choose between free spins with embracing wilds or Double Feature Bonus. The former will offer 12 free spins and the embracing wilds will turn reels 1 and 5 into wild symbols, moving closer to each other with each spin before embracing on reel 3. The second option will show a picking game with classic movie posters and the player must click on them in order to get cash prizes. Up to 10 posters can be selected and there is also a 2x image which will double the wins. The symbols show the two movie stars which also act as stacked wilds during the free spins. They appear together in the most valuable symbol and separate for the following two. There is also an image of a rich older woman and a photographer from the press. The six lower paying symbols show a luxurious car, an award, a camera, a roll of film, a block with handprints and an autograph, and a couple of movie tickets.
