Golden Canyon Slot Review -Betsoft

One provider I never hear news about is Betsoft, this slot provider is so underrated and has been in the casino industry for years now. Through these years many different games have been released, some hits and some misses. I recently reviewed ‘Spinfinity Man‘, which is a fun unique release by the provider. But now we have a new slot titled ‘Golden Canyon‘, which is set to release very soon.

This slot is based around the wild west, many slots are based around this theme and they do seem popular in the casino community. But for me, it is just overused personally. Golden Canyon has some wonderful graphics but there could be some work done on them, in the background you can see the canyons and colorful scenery. Let’s see how volatile this slot is.

golden canyon base game

Golden Canyon has a setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 20 set pay lines. This slot is medium volatility, this is due to the max win being capped at 4,800x and set RTP of 96.13%. You can bet from £0.20-£20.

Golden Canyon Slot Review Symbols & Paytable

Golden Canyon Symbols

There are 13 symbols in total, this includes 6 low paying symbols. These are represented by J, Q, K, A, playing cards and a wanted poster.  There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by horseshoes, sheriff badges, lanterns, horses and golden nuggets. There is also a stick of dynamite scatter symbol and wild symbol. The most valuable symbol is the golden nugget, this symbol will pay 500x for 5 across a pay line.


In the base game, you will benefit from a simple wild expansion mini-feature. I love mini-features like this in slots, as the possibility of full-screen wilds is very exciting for players. Landing 1+ wild will trigger the wild/s to expand to fully cover the reel they have landed on.

golden canyon bonus feature

Central to this slot is the free spins feature, this is activated when you land 3 or more dynamite scatter symbols. Once these land the symbols will explode, removing symbols and new symbols will fall into their place for more wins. This will award you 5 free spins, you will earn 1 extra free spin for each scatter that lands. You will benefit from the expanding wild feature from the base game but no other features.

This bonus feature, however, could benefit from a different feature compared to the expanding wilds from the base game. Instead, wilds that land could be sticky or a multiplier feature could be added. Just to make this bonus feature more fun


Overall, this game is a well-produced game by Betsoft. The game could improve in some ways like any slot, but the expanding wild mechanic is great but the theme is very saturated in the casino industry. I definitely recommend you try it out on release and I’m excited about Betsoft’s next release.
