Gold rushes changed the course of Australia’s culture and history forever, and now there’s a pokie that can do just the same for Aussie players. Enter the Where’s the Gold pokie from famed-Aussie slot maker Aristocrat.

Originally just a pokie found in land casinos all around the world, this pokie and its cartoonish gold rush icons have migrated over to the online casino landscape, and the result is nothing short of rich. Featuring a great free spin feature with multiple wild symbols, it’s no wonder that several of our reviewers struck it big when we were doing our review of Where’s the Gold.

Rating breakdown

There’s bigger gold out there in them pokie hills, but Where’s the Gold from Aristocrat is still more than worth sitting on and milking of its riches for a while.

Detailed review


Jackpot & Bonus Games

The main feature of this five-reeler shares its name with the title of the pokie itself. The feature is triggered when three or more scatter symbols (sticks of dynamite) show on a single spin. You’ll then be presented with a screen to choose from one of five gold hunting characters that you think will dig you up the most gold (this is completely random, however).

Once you make your selection, you’ll watch your character as he or she pans for gold. For every gold nugget they reveal, you’ll win a free spin (up to 10 possible). They can also reveal up to three different base game symbols that will serve as wilds during your free spins, which can result in some huge real money wins. Better yet, you can even re-trigger this feature and even more free spins and wilds during this whole process.

As is standard for pokies of this era (especially from Aristocrat), there is also a gamble feature. This option is presented to you after any win, and allows you to go double or quadruple or nothing on your real cash winnings by playing a simple 1 of 2 or 1 of 4 pick em game.

Mobile play

Unlike many of their other pokies, Aristocrat never gave Where’s the Gold its own dedicated mobile app. That’s just fine with us though, as we prefer to find and play pokies within the apps of our favourite online casinos that we already have downloaded. If you play on an online casino site that supports in-browser play, you can probably also enjoy Where’s the Gold that way on your smartphone or tablet, instead of on an app.

Our Where’s the Gold online pokies review team also shined about these things about the game on mobile:

  • Identical port from the online and land casino versions
  • Simple graphics make the game easy on the eyes, even on small smartphones
  • Change your bet and navigate the game’s menus with ease
  • Nothing makes your commute better than winning real cash while you wait
  • Play with the same online casino account that you use on your PC

Why Where's the Gold Is Worth Playing

Aussies whose relatives possibly benefited so much from the gold rushes of yore will love (and possibly also benefit from) this title’s bonus feature that we detailed above in our review of Where’s the Gold.
