Themes and Graphics
In keeping with its aviation theme, Wings of Gold is set against a backdrop of blue skies streaked with clouds. The display of the pay table and paylines have been kept simple in a military-like font, and the reels themselves are transparent to fully exhibit the clear blue sky behind them and the reel symbols. On the reels of this slot are a number of aviation-themed icons, including a number of fighter aircrafts and their pilots, who are dressed in typical attire of the era to add to the nostalgic feel of the game.
The reel symbols of Wings of Gold consist of the moustachioed head pilot himself, a glamorous red-haired stewardess, 3 different military fighter planes and the Wings of Gold game logo. Also included are playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, which have been styled in a bold metallic font to match the aircrafts.
The red-haired stewardess also serves as the game’s jackpot payout symbol, and will award 5,000 coins when 5 appear on an active payline.
The head pilot serves as the game’s wild symbol. This wild will substitute all other symbols on the reels with the exception of the scatter symbol, helping to create more winning combinations.
The Wings of Gold logo is the game’s scatter symbol. The Medal of Honour bonus feature will be triggered when 3 or more of these scatters spin into view on the reels.
Medal of Honour Free Spins Feature
Once the Medal of Honour bonus feature has been activated, players will be redirected to a screen on which 3 different medals are displayed. Players must choose any 1 of these medals. Once this has been completed, a special set of game reels will begin to spin, and players will be awarded a number of free spins depending on how many times their chosen medal appears on these reels. Anywhere from 5 to 100 free spins will be awarded during this feature.
Additionally, expanding wild symbols will appear during the free spins, covering the reel on which they appear. The Medal of Honour bonus feature can be retriggered as well by landing 3 or more scatter symbols on the reels during the feature.
Xtrawin Bonus Feature
Wings of Gold also offers an Xtrawin feature, which players can activate whenever they wish by selecting the ‘Xtrawin’ option at the top right-hand corner of the game screen. Once selected, the game’s background will turn gold, and an animated plane zooms across the screen. This feature will cost players an extra 50% of their current bet when it is activated, and in exchange awards expanding wild symbols that cover the reels as they spin to create further wins.
