Crazy Bill’s Gold Strike Slots Details
Crazy Bill’s Gold Strike slot machines are powered by VGT’s Live Call Bingo real time bingo engine. The game is a traditional three reel slot machine that features their red screen free spin bonus. For those of you not familiar with the red scree spins, this is what makes VGT games exciting and addicting for players. On VGT machines there is a small roughly 4X6 inch display above the reels. This display shows the numbers of the balls called (you are technically playing bingo) and the patterns on your bingo card for any particular spin. Also displayed are any amounts that you win and the balance of bankroll in the machine. Randomly during game play, after any spin, that screen will turn red. When it does the reels will spin, sometimes multiple times. Each time the reels spin when the screen is red you will end up with a winning combination on the payline. So, multiple red screen spins means that your winnings keep accumulating as they spin. I have seen five and six red screen spins at a time! This is what keeps me coming back to play these games.
As with other VGT games, you can play Crazy Bill’s Gold Strike slots in dominations ranging from 25 cents to twenty five dollars. They symbols on the reels include Crazy Bill, picks and axes, covered wagons, piles of gold nuggets and of course, cherries and sevens symbols like the other VGT games. The game play is just like other VGT games like Hot Red Ruby and Mr. Money Bags.
How Has The Slotsguy Fared Playing Crazy Bill’s Gold Strike?
I can’t deny it. This game has been good to me and my friend Hal. Most trips to the casino I put a little money into one of the slot games to see if the machine is hitting. Two or three years ago, up at Choctaw in Durant, the wife and I were playing on a Friday night. She was actually the one playing this game just outside the buffet. I was getting hungry, so I told her I wanted to eat. She says to me “ok, let me use the restroom and then we will go into the buffet”. Before she got up, she told me that she had put a lot of money into the machine and that I should give it a try. So, I did. On my second spin, I hit the jackpot! When she returned, I was signing the paperwork for the casino employee. Boy was she pissed! “That’s my jackpot!, she said. You won my money! Later when, I got paid, she wanted me to give the money to her. Of course, I said no. “How is it your jackpot? You weren’t spinning the reels”, was my reply. Eventually, I gave her half of it. You know the married life. What was I supposed to do?
Bottom line, it is a good game. One I will continue to play. I highly recommend it.
