Gold Rally

Gold Rally

Gold Rally is a real classic in the world of progressive jackpots. Released by Playtech back in 2002, this cute little slot have paid out so many big progressive jackpots over the years.

Here are a few examples:

Date Jackpot size
30 November 2013 $6,347,118
13 December 2015 $4,049,933
16 May 2016 $1,796,330
13 February 2011 $1,625,456
27 February 2012 $1,581,676
2 July 2018 $1,481,780

You can only win the progressive jackpot on an 8 coin wager.

The progressive jackpot starts at $75,000 so there is always something to win, even if it just paid out. It is a pooled jackpot, fed by Gold Rally players in a multitude of online casinos.

Not a penny slot

Gold Rally is not a suitable slot if you want to make tiny wagers, because the smallest possible wager is €/$/£2. Also, you can only win the progressive jackpot on a €/$/£16 bet.


The theme for Gold Rally is gold mining in the 19th century. Examples of symbols that can appear dynamite, scales, horseshoes, a revolver, a pick axe, the mining lantern, a mining trolley, and – of course – gold.

During the interactive bonus round, it’s your time to go searching for gold.

Betting on Gold Rally

You decide how many of the eight paylines to activate.

You can’t decide how many coins to bet per activated payline; it is always one coin.

You can’t change the coin value; it is fixed. If you play in Euro, it is always €2.

Smallest possible bet (in Euro): 1 payline x 1 coin x €2 = €2

Biggest possible bet (in Euro): 8 paylines x 1 coin x €2 = €16

You can only win the progressive jackpot when you play with 8 active paylines.

No traditional reels

Gold Rally looks like it has three reels, but each of the nine symbols actually spin individually.

The scale symbol is your key to the progressive jackpot

The scale symbol is a scatter symbol and it counts even when it appears on paylines that are inactive. You need to get 9 scales to win the progressive jackpot.

  • 9 scales and you win the progressive jackpot
  • 8 scales and you win 200 times your wager
  • 7 scales and you win 50 times your wager
  • 6 scales and you win 10 times your wager
  • 5 scales and you win 5 times your wager

You can only win the progressive jackpot on an 8 coin wager.

Interactive Bonus Round

If the dynamite symbol appears in all four corners at the same time, the interactive gold mining bonus round will start. A map will appear on screen, and it is your task to chose between the various red X markings and start digging for gold at your chosen spot.

Free Spin round

Regrettably, there is no free spin round on Gold Rally.

Can I play Gold Rally on a touch-screen device?

Yes you can! The version of Gold Rally that was launched back in 2002 was naturally not adapted for touch-screen, but later on Playtech released an updated version for smartphones and tablets.
