Stick ’em up punters! It’s time to launch the fourth release in Elk’s Gold Series and catch up on the ever-thrilling adventures of Kane Steel. This time, the cowboy is in a last-ditch effort to make a fortune in the wake of a more civilized 20th century that will bring the Western era to a decisive end.
If you haven’t been following the adventures of Kane in his vehement search for treasure, it all started with the Ecuador Gold slot, where he stockpiled valuable treasures from the Lost Temple of Luck. He then loaded them up on his plane, fired it up, and started heading home for some well-deserved rest. Fate, however, had a different plan in mind as his plane crashed in Tahiti, where the second installment in the series, Tahiti Gold, was set.
After those excursion adventures, the third slot in the series, Voodoo Gold, then led us deep into the mangroves of Louisiana where Kane was unafraid to tief the enchanted Shaman hideout. Funnily, he still hasn’t amassed enough riches because here we are yet again with the Black River Gold slot where he is about to use dynamite to take out a train ferrying gold!

In typical Elk Studios’ style, you will be prompted to turn on the sound soon after the game finishes loading up to 100%. You will want to keep the soundtrack of this slot on as it will prove useful in immersing you into the gameplay.
On to the actual game, wins can start popping as soon as you hit the train underpass where the game’s action takes place. While card royals, cowboy breastpins, and whiskey glasses are the low-payers offering rewards of up to 0.8X, a collection of precious stones and Kane are the high-payers netting rewards of up to 3 times your bet.
Speaking of bets, players can click the button on the bottom left to select their preferred stake. This can be as little as €0.2, but because this is a high-hit-frequency slot, you can take your chances by going for the maximum possible bet of €100 (or just something substantial).
As with the other slots in the gold series, Black River Gold utilizes a cascading reels mechanism. Every time there is a win, the involved symbols will disappear as if they’ve been blown off, leaving empty spaces that allow symbols to gravitate from the top. This turn of events can form a new winning combination, which will lead to a cascade and possibly another win.
With this slot, you have more to be excited about over and above the multiple wins that could happen on a single round. Listen up! For every cascade, the grid will expand, causing an increase in the number of ways, which further increases your chances of landing a win.
Locating the Train
Kane’s compass can show up on the reels as a symbol. Whenever it does, it will spin around and turn the symbols it points into substituting wilds. If reel cascades direct the compass to the bottom of the reel, it will also transform into a wild.
Load up your Revolver!
Huge 2X2 symbols can show up on the reels on a random spin and turn into a revolver that loads up the smaller symbols. This guarantees a decent win as the revolver will represents every single symbol loaded on it, plus it turns into a wild when fully loaded.
Bonus Round- Taking down the Train
Land 3, 4, 5, or 6 bonus symbols to be rewarded with 10, 15, 20, and 25 reel cascades on the house! The best thing is that they can be retriggered.
Out of nowhere, the developers at Elk Studios came up with a gripping story that has birthed one of the most successful slot series in the slots universe. We are sure that yet another slot following this line up is brewing and we can’t wait to reveal it to you!
