The Winning Options of Gold Canyon Slots

Payouts are given for lining up three of the same symbols on the screen. The player can find payouts for each symbol on the pay table which is off screen. There is an auto play option for players that want to preset the number of spins the game runs for and this can be found at the bottom of the screen with the spin button. The cowboy is wild and when he appears on the screen, he expands to cover the whole screen and, in this way, offers more winning payouts since he substitutes for other symbols. The dynamite is the scatter symbol awarding players multiplying payouts when two or more appear on the screen in any position. Five of the dynamite symbols award the player 100x the coin bet placed. When three or more of the dynamite symbols appear on the screen the player is treated to an explosion where the current symbols disappear, and new symbols drop into place. After this the payouts are calculated. For every dynamite symbol that explodes, the player is granted a free spin.

Double Up Option

At the end of every winning spin, the player has a choice whether to take his payouts or choose the double up option. The double up option takes the player to a new screen where he is invited to guess the side of the coin that will land after being tossed. It is a simple heads or tails game and a correct guess doubles the players payouts, but an incorrect guess loses the winnings for that spin. Double up is totally optional. Gold Canyon slots takes players back in time to a very popular era where anyone could make money from the gold, it was also a very rough time and it is nice to be able to just enjoy the virtual visit with the potential to win money.
