Welcome into the land of gold, Bonjour! The online casino game of Bonjour – the little French word for “good” – is sure to make you feel good and ready to gamble away. The colorful background of a sunny countryside scene with splashes of bright blue and green sky forms the perfect backdrop for the slots reel, with an upbeat Irish folk-style tune jingling away in the background. Images on the slots reels are often cartoon renderings of things that the traditional slots machines of the old-world casino world considered to represent Ireland. (These renderings often have an uncanny resemblance to Irish wedding carols: perhaps that’s why they are so beloved by tourists.)
In the bonus round, each player gets to spin the reels as many times as they would like, but for each spin a smaller portion of the bonus is awarded to the player. (The bonus round is a very important part of the game, and some players refer to it as the “panic” or “scratch” mode; because while it is enjoyable and challenging, it can get out of hand if you don’t know when to stop.) Players may bet as much as they want during the bonus round, and they may stop at any time to put their money back in the pot, just as they would at the bank when playing the main game.
There are some key differences between Land Of Gold and its slot alternative, Big Casino. First, in Big Casino you do not get to spin as many reels as you can in Land Of Gold; and second, when you do stop, you pay more than you would in the bonus round, unless you have maxed out your bankroll. That last part – “maxing out your bankroll” – may seem strange, but it is a feature of the game that actually rewards people for playing with a high amount of money in the bonus rounds. The developers of Land Of Gold took this approach to “phasic” gaming, meaning that the same basic rules apply to all games, but with “extra” features that give people a special feeling. In Land Of Gold, each time you play you earn coins that add up to your bankroll. The game offers no special reels or “lines,” so you never feel like you are playing a traditional slot machine game – but you may feel like you’re gambling, which is what a slot machine game should feel like to most people.
