Get ready to hop onto The Silk Road as you play Play'n GO's Golden Caravan slot, which transports players from the Middle East all the way to Asia in an attempt to transport some goods and gold, hopefully while being able to pocket some of the riches yourself!
Golden Caravan is a 5 reel, 10 payline video slot that has a decidedly Arabic theme from several hundred years ago. The game is set in the desert, with dunes reaching high into the sky and the reels reflect this as well. The game's symbols are a combination of standard slot symbols (10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace) and theme specific icons, which are comprised of an oasis, a chest of treasure, a praying monk, and a traveler hoisting jewels. There is also a camel, which serves as the game's wild symbol.
Feature wise, Golden Caravan is a bit light, as there's only the above-mentioned wild as well as free spins, and a gamble feature. For those of you not familiar with the gamble features in slots, you take your winnings on a single spin and put them at risk in an effort to double or quadruple your money by guessing the color of a card or the suit of a card. Golden Caravan also has a posted theoretical return to player percentage of 96.2%, which is pretty decent for an online slot, even if it isn't the highest amount we've seen.
I played Golden Caravan for a bit and found the game to be decent, although certainly nothing special. The bonus features are run of the mill, and in reality I was pretty bored by the game. The fact of the matter is that this game just doesn't have a lot going on, but that doesn't mean its not a bad game, it just wasn't for me.
