Amazon.com has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today’s app is Gallop for Gold Slots.
Gallop for Gold Slots is priced at $2.49 in Google Play. It is normally priced at $1.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we’ve noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing and availability between the two marketplaces.
Gallop for Gold Slots is described as follows:
Your Smartphone: a Racehorse and Slot Machine
Beat the bookie and share the fun in Gallop for Gold Slots. Can your horse win all 48 trophies and become the super-champion? It’s possible with the Nudge Jackpot and six unique bookie bonuses in the feature bonus round.
During normal play, a fashionable hostess acts as a wildcard and substitutes for all symbols except the scattered horses. Three, four, or five scattered horses during normal play wins you free games and the Colt Cash Feature, where all payouts are doubled!
At the end of the free games, you play the Bookie’s Bonus round. After the first and last reel spin, a special bonus prize appears.
You also have the option to gamble at another casino table after you win some money. Choose to wager your winnings at a roulette table or a black and red card game. Gallop for Gold Slots is for entertainment purposes only. No real money can be won or lost.
- Play an exciting Vegas-style slot machine
- Enjoy real slot machine action with sharp graphics
- Gamble your winnings at a roulette or card table
The Daily Double Jackpot
A part of all wins during the free games are added to the Daily Double Jackpot. The longer it takes you to win the jackpot, the higher it can grow – up to 99 thousand virtual dollars. The jackpot can only be won during the free games.
Gallop for Gold Slots has a rating of 4.2 stars in Google Play and has 3.8 stars in the Amazon Appstore.
To be clear, the 5.0 star rating in Google Play comes with 52 ratings, overall, which isn’t a huge number, but is large enough “it’s a decent app.” There are only 12 ratings in Amazon Appstore, however.
Despite that, we’d probably “buy” this and try it while it was free.
There is also a version of Gallop for Gold Slots in the iOS App Store. It’s also $1.99, but hasn’t had enough ratings on the current version to be displayed. It has a 3.5-star rating overall.
Those who are considering “buying” a Free Amazon Appstore app might want to consider what it means to developers.
Amazon.com opened up the Appstore despite a lawsuit by Apple, which has previously trademarked the term “App Store.” Microsoft has filed an appeal against that trademark, saying the term is too generic. Amazon.com has responded to the lawsuit in the same manner.
