"Gold Rush Express " is based on a theme of Gold mines and brave miners looking for under-earth treasures. The minimum total bet per spin is $0.20, while the maximum bet can be upto $50, which could be considered low for mid and high-range players. Though the regular symbol payout range of 0.01x-10x is devastatingly low, the high RTP of 96.45% should favor higher payouts. Additionally, the high variance may not guarantee frequent payouts. But thankfully the 5,000x and 10 free spins paired with the favorable RTP could help players. So, the three main bonus features of Rush Express Feature, Free spins, and Pick feature allows the players to win 10 free spins, Jackpots worth 10x and so much more. Having said that, we have come across games offering significantly higher bonus incentives. Players can also try the Gold Rush Express free version, before wagering real money. But if players prefer more engaging themes they can try out Book of Oz if they are attracted to the themes of Magic. Or they can try out Agent Jane Blonde returns for max wins upto 12,000x.
