We love a good fantasy theme when it comes to slot games, and so we couldn’t have asked for a better theme than Goldaur Guardians, which lays on the fantasy tropes so thick that even the pickiest Dungeons & Dragons player would have to take notice.
Elf warriors, scarlet witches, beast folk and magic trees all haunt the reels, all for the purpose of guarding a massive hoard of treasure somewhere in the enchanted forest. Can you sneak past the guards and claim your reward, or will you be lost in the woods? Let’s take a look at our Goldaur Guardians slot game review.
Fantasy themed slots rely on their presentation to stand out, and the Golaur Guardians slot game certainly wins on that score. The background to the reels features a spooky forest filled with stagnant pools and gnarled old trees, while the reels themselves are considerably brighter: Tiny faeries in red and blue make up the low-value symbols, while the high-value symbols are an array of fantasy characters in action poses including wood elves, high elves, dark elves and a red sorceress. The art is fantastic, incredibly detailed and full of movement and life, while excellent animations and an otherworldly soundtrack all add to the excitement.
Just like faeries in storybooks, this slot is tricky and quick to change, and while the five-reel and three-row setup with 20 pay lines is simple enough, there are so many premium symbols that land in a variety of sizes that you never know what is coming next. The most valuable symbols can land in sizes ranging from 1×1 to 3×3, sometimes taking up most of the playing area, to help generate big wins. There is also an ornately drawn wild, which as well as generating this slot’s biggest win at 50x your stake, is also the key to the bonus rounds. As a high volatility slot, you shouldn’t expect regular wins, but all you need is a few massive wins or the game’s truly colossal £/€/$2 million jackpot to land, and you’ll be laughing! The RTP of 96.34% is reassuring in this regard, and if that isn’t enough, the bonuses surely will be!
The free spins in this round are activated in the traditional way, by landing three scatters. This grants you ten free spins, and if you’re lucky the Hero Spins feature will be activated, granting you a random hero stacked on the first two reels while a massive symbol takes up the last three reels. Manage to land a scatter on this feature and you’ll begin the Hero Trail, upgrading the hero to the next level on the scale visible to the left of the reels. Manage to get to the top of the trail and you’re looking at winning 1000x your stake with every winning spin!
Goldaur Guardians is beautiful and changeable as any elven maiden, and while it looks amazing be careful you don’t get burned by the high volatility. You can easily end up getting lost in the woods as you spin without success, but all you need is a good go at the bonus round and you could be raking in huge amounts of cash. But do you dare to try?
