California Gold Slots

The more the nuggets weigh the more they are worth and the richer the miner becomes. Unfortunately, there was a lot of competition with the miners and each one tried to outdo the other and find more nuggets. California Gold slots gives players a taste of what it was like to live through the gold rush. Based around one of the mines of California, the game includes dynamite used to blow the mines, barrows filled with gold nuggets, chisels to hack away at the rock where the gold may be hiding, mine entrances and maps to find the best areas.
