Yukon Gold Casino
Yukon Gold is part of the reputable Casino Rewards group of casinos. Running on Microgaming’s Viper platform, there are loads of casino games present, pretty much anything you can think of in fact, and the autoplay and auto-hold facilities are especially intuitive for online casino newbies. Note if you play with a bonus, the signup bonus can only be claimed at one Casino Rewards casino but Yukon Gold offers regular promotions and a loyalty scheme that can be transferred bewteen all casinos in their network. A safe place to play with a good array of banking options available, but be aware there is a 4k a week cashout limit unil you have been ID’ed.
Yukon Gold Casino recreates the California Gold Rush of the mid-1800’s and features more then 200 exciting casino games powered by industry leader Microgaming. Many of the best slots on the Net can be found here along with a great variety of table games and Microgaming’s popular video poker machines. Yukon Gold Casino is licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission.
After downloading the casino, installing and registering an account, I clicked on the “New Games” link in the casino lobby – and decided to try my luck with The Adventures of Galactic Gopher – a 30-line video slot where the wild Galactic Gopher appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 and triples the value of any win which includes one or more wilds, and three or more Rocket scatters awards you free spins with a Rocket win multiplier appearing on every win during the free spins.
During the game I encountered 3 free spin sessions, all worth around 30x each time but clearly there’s the potential to hit much larger wins if Lady Luck is with you. A minor complaint is that, having used the Autoplay feature, the game is supposed to stop on all features – but the only feature on this game is the free spins and more often than not I’d leave the computer for a moment and come back to a game which had already stopped and paid out the free spin winnings – kind of takes away the thrill of space exploration, if you know what I mean.
Next I decided to try the new Jacks or Better – Level Up video poker – those of you familiar with the Multistrike video poker machines will be glad to know that Jacks or Better – Level Up is Microgaming’s online version of this game. Having played this once before at another casino, I can assure you that the game is fair – I actually hit the biggest payout, a Royal Flush on the top line at 8x for a cool 8,000 credit payout.
The game entails betting 5 credits on each of 4 lines, starting from the bottom at 1x multiplier. In order to proceed to the higher lines and multipliers, you need to obtain a winning hand of jacks or better, or a Level Up card which automatically entitles you to play the next level regardless of the result of your hand. The second level is 2x, the third 4x, and the top level 8x.
Sadly, Lady Luck was not with me at Yukon Gold this time round – the best hand I could manage was a full house on line 3, still a decent payout but overall the session was a loser. One thing I noticed is that the Level Up card seems to come up less often than on the Multistrike games in the casinos – but then again I’ve never hit a royal flush on the top line on Multistrike!
I’ve always been a fan of the Microgaming games, and the two mentioned above are certainly no exception. Yukon Gold Casino offers all of the best games and surely many more to follow – you can’t do wrong by giving them a try.
