The objective of playing Land of Gold online slot is to spin the reels and match symbols on the paylines. The slot has a unique reel set, which means there are 576 ways to win. There are also some Bonus Features that can help boost your balance. Discover why this is a popular choice for people who like to play online casino games.

How to Play:

  • Start by choosing the Coin Value. Do this by using the +/- buttons underneath the Coin Value display.
  • Land of Gold slot is always played with 576 (All Ways) paylines. This cannot be adjusted.
  • The Total Bet is calculated as Coin Value x 40. This is the amount deducted from your balance for each spin.
  • When you have selected your bets, click on the Spin button to start the game. When the reels are spinning the Spin button changes to Stop; select this to skip the animations of the reels spinning for faster results. Switching on Turbo Mode essentially provides the same function.
  • You can also play the slot using Auto Play Mode. This allows you to set a predetermined number of spins (10-99) to be played through consecutively, i.e. without your input. Click on the Auto Play button and choose the number of Auto Spins you wish to play; these will only pause if you select Stop, or are awarded a Bonus Feature.
  • If a winning spin has been achieved, it will be clearly highlighted on screen and the amount won shown in the Win Field.
  • All winning combinations and their values are shown on the Paytable screen, which can be accessed by clicking on the Info button on the bottom left of the main screen. To calculate the value of a payout, multiply the figure shown on the Paytable by the Coin Value.

All winning combinations must start on Reel 1, and be in an unbroken chain of at least two symbols moving left to right across the reels.

Wild Symbol:

The Wild Symbol – represented by the Land of Gold Logo – can substitute for all other symbols (except Bonus and Scatter) to help form winning combinations.

The Clover, Harp, Horseshoe, Pot of Gold and Rainbow Symbols are stacked across all reels.

Stacks of Luck Feature:

Whenever any of the symbols mentioned above fill Reels 2, 3 and 4 completely, you will be awarded the Stacks of Luck Feature. This will mean that you win a random cash prize (up to 25x your Total Bet), as well as any additional wins from the spin.

Lucky Spins Free Games:

If you land three Scatter Symbols anywhere on the reels, you will win Lucky Spins Free Games. When this occurs:

  • Press Click to Start to begin the Free Games Bonus.
  • A new screen is launched. The Leprechaun will prompt you to spin the wheel of fortune. The segments on the wheel contain extra Free Games, extra Multipliers and Collect. You can continue to spin the wheel, gathering Free Games and Multipliers, until you land on Collect. When this occurs, the Free Games and Multipliers (that you have collected) are awarded to be used in Free Games Bonus.
  • Free Games will play through automatically. The Multiplier awarded in the previous stage will be shown in the top left of the screen. It will multiply the value of any win achieved during Free Games.
  • If you land three Scatter Symbols on Reels 2, 3 and 4 in the same manner as the base game, you will win a further five Free Games. The Multiplier is not changed.
  • When all Free Games have been played through, a summary screen will appear detailing the total win.
  • The Golden Coins Bonus is not active during Free Games; the Bonus Symbols are removed from the reels.
  • Click on Continue to return to the main game.

Please note: the Coin Value for Lucky Spins Free Games is the same as the triggering spin.

Golden Coins Bonus:

The Golden Coins Bonus is awarded when two Bonus Symbols land anywhere on Reels 1 and 5 simultaneously. When this occurs:

  • Press Click to Start to begin the Golden Coins Bonus.
  • A new screen will be opened. The objective is to launch the Leprechaun into the air (by clicking on the Toadstool). The Leprechaun will catch certain items, which will reveal prizes. Coins will reveal cash rewards (figures multiplied by the Total Bet). Clovers will award the Clover Jackpot if three are caught. Catching a Crow will end the Golden Coins Bonus.
  • The Leprechaun can continue to jump and catch an unlimited amount of items until a Crow is caught. At this point, a summary screen will appear detailing your total win.
  • Press Continue to return to the main game.

Please note: the Golden Coins Bonus is played at the same Coin Value as the triggering spin.

Clover Jackpot:

The Clover Jackpot, which can be won during the Golden Coins Bonus by catching three Clovers, is a Progressive Jackpot award. This means that it is funded by taking a small percentage of each player’s bets, as well as a base amount (seed) provided by the casino.

The Jackpot is awarded and funded as follows:

How to play casino games

Here's a rundown of some of our most popular online casino games, including how to play them, and which offers the highest payouts.

Online slots

Online slots are played more than any other online casino games. They’re relatively simple to play, which makes them a great option for beginners. Slots can also offer large payouts, particularly for a jackpot win.

Playing slots online is very straightforward. The simplest form of online slots are three-reel slots, which are based on the traditional fruit machines you may have seen in arcades. In these slots, you’ll see three columns and three rows of symbols, with the middle row being the payline. You place your bet and spin the reel, and if you get a winning combination, you win the amount stated on the paytable.

There are many other kinds of slots online available at William Hill Canada, such as five-reel slots and video slots, but they essentially work in the same way. While the odds of winning at slots are slimmer than other online casino games, they do allow you to play with small stakes on a wide variety of slots. Slots with a jackpot offer a larger prize pool, so let’s have a look at those next.

Jackpot slots

The main difference between regular online slots and jackpot slots is that the former have a lower maximum payout. With jackpot slots, however, there are larger top prizes, sometimes offering up to a seven-digit win on just a single spin.

While 'jackpot' can refer to a fixed huge cash prize awarded during jackpot games, the term is also used to describe progressive slot games. For fixed jackpot slots the size of the jackpot is, well, a fixed amount. With a progressive slot, the size of the jackpot increases each time a player places a bet on the game. Progressive jackpot slots are a great way to add to your online gambling experience. These games can offer some of the most exciting experiences of all casino games, as they provide you with the chance to win the biggest payouts you'll find online.

Online roulette

Online roulette games consist of a wheel with spaces that are either red or black and are numbered from 1-36. This popular game is easy to learn and even easier to play. All you need to do is predict where the ball will land and place your bet. The roulette wheel then spins, and if it lands on where you placed your bet, you win.

You may think that only one variant of roulette exists in online casinos, as this is typically the case at real-world casinos. However, at William Hill Canada, you’ll find multiple variants available, including a European version with one zero, and an American version with two. You’ll also find a French version that offers slightly improved odds if you bet on an even-money proposition.

Online blackjack

To win at online blackjack, you need a higher number than the dealer without exceeding 21. You are dealt two cards and can ask for another card as many times as you want before you reach 21.

One of the great things about playing online blackjack is the number of variants available. At a real-world casino, you’re restricted to just one or two games, but you'll find more here at William Hill Canada, including Blackjack Scratch, Royale Blackjack, and Blackjack Super 21.

Live casino games online

This is where online casino technology really comes into its own. Some players enjoy the thrills provided by a real-life casino but also enjoy the convenience of playing online. Live casino offers the ultimate experience to these players. The only difference between playing live casino at home and playing at a land-based casino is that with the former, the action is live-streamed to your device.

You’ll be playing at real tables, with real cards, and with real croupiers dealing your cards or spinning the wheel. Depending on the game, you'll also be playing with other players from all over the globe. With the ability to enjoy live chat with both players and the dealer, live casino offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy an immersive experience while playing your favourite casino games online.

Enjoy free online casino games with casino bonuses

An online casino bonus is a great way to boost your balance with extra funds and make playing your favourite online slots even more fun. Casino bonuses come in a number of different forms and are applicable to a variety of online casino games.

Almost all casinos bonuses are subject to their own terms and conditions, but what you get back is certainly worth it. If you look at our current bonuses, you’ll see our welcome offer, along with any other offers we may have available. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all bonus, so just make sure to keep your eye on our bonus page in order to enjoy our selection of games the fullest.
