Pokie Information

Gold Rush Express has 20 paylines that run from left to right, like the gold train featured in the game’s design. Players land wins by getting at least three of the same symbols on any of the paylines, and all wins start on the leftmost reel.

The game has several symbols divided into low and high paying. The low-paying symbols are A, K, J, Q, and 10, and landing five rewards you with 1x your stake. The high-paying symbols are the gold bars, money bag, pickaxe, shovel, and gas light. A complete line of five or more will give you a 2x to 5x win.

The wild substitutes all the symbols above apart from the Gold Train, Bell, Rush Express, and Scatter.

Rush Express

The Gold Train and Bell symbols only appear on the fifth reel. When a Rush Express symbol lands on the same spin as either of these symbols, the game triggers the Rush Express feature. The Rush Express symbols only appear on the first to the fourth reels and can be a gold nugget that awards a cash price or a train car of one of four colors.

The train’s color corresponds to the color of the symbol that triggered the mini-feature. Each train color collects a corresponding cash prize. At least one will also collect a multiplier or one of the jackpots ranging from 20x to 5,000x your stake.

Triggering this feature with the Bell symbol collects all Rush Express symbol prizes. Triggering it with the Train Symbol awards multipliers collected on the Golden train. Players can multiply the value of their symbols up to 10 times.

Free Spins and Pick Feature

To trigger the free spins, players have to land three bonus symbols. While the value of each reel is boosted when playing with free spins, and there is a chance of triggering the Rush Express feature, there is no option to retrigger free spins. Another great pokie game that has the free spins feature is Fish Em Up.

The Pick feature is triggered at the end of the base game by Nugget symbols that appear randomly. Note that this feature is only activated if no other features are triggered. Players can pick one symbol at a time and win the first jackpot that appears at least three times. Players cannot activate this feature when playing using free spins.

Playing Gold Rush Express is a fun experience, giving players multiple chances of winning with each spin. It has numerous features that lead to wins, with the Rush Express feature being the one you should be aiming to trigger as it is the one that allows you to win the jackpot of 5,000 times your stake.
