Golden Tour Slot Review
|Our Rating:||3.2 / 5|
- The game’s large paytable, handy wilds and useful scatters help to produce a relatively generous 97.71% RTP percentage.
- Golden Tour’s interesting and well thought out golfing theme ensures that fans of the sport are well on course for hours of fun.
- The slot’s main game and its bonus round are simple and easy to understand, and a straightforward ‘help section’ makes life even easier.
- A simple yet still engaging bonus round helps to liven up gameplay and increase the opportunities for payouts.
- Top payline jackpot of £2,000 is generous and certainly nothing to sniff at, but is quite a bit lower than those offered by some other slots.
- Staking choices of between 1p and £1 per payline are perhaps a little more restrictive than is ideal.
Sticking closely to its golfing theme throughout, the symbols found on the five reels of the Golden Tour slot are generally based on items found on course. As with the vast majority of five reel slots, the most valuable symbol combinations are those which include five matching symbols lined up along an active payline.
The single most valuable combination of all is one made up of five of the game’s double golf ball wild symbols. That particular combination pays out at a generous rate of 2000 times the player’s bet for the payline in question, so at the highest possible bet value of £1 that equates to a payline jackpot of £2000.
On top of that standard way of winning, Golden Tour also provides extra opportunities for payouts by way of its bonus round that will be discussed below.
A comparatively simple five reel slot game, Golden Tour does feature a handful of additional features that help to improve both gameplay and the chances of players winning wads of cash. The features are namely the slot’s wild symbols and its bonus round.
As well as being the most valuable symbols in the game in terms of forming winning payline combinations, Golden Tour’s double golf ball wild symbols also play the more familiar role of wilds. They can substitute for either of the slot’s two other golf ball symbols to create the most valuable possible combination for any active payline.
If you land three or more Gopher, Duck, or Catfish symbols in order, you’ll find yourself teeing off for the Golden Tour Golfing Bonus Feature. That bonus round asks you to select the most appropriate club for a virtual golf shot and which one you choose determines the size of payout that the bonus round delivers.
To make it even better, if you landed the bonus round with 4 symbols instead of three, your winnings are tripled! Wait, there’s more. Land the bonus round with 5 symbols and win ten times the amount shown!
Whilst the symbols triggering the bonus round are animal rather than golf themed, Golden Tour’s other symbols are more recognisably associated with the sport. Behind the double golf ball wild symbol, the next most valuable symbols are those depicting either a blue or a red golf ball.
Five of the blue golf ball symbols lined up along an active payline delivers a payout worth 1000 times the bet amount per line. Five of the red golf balls, meanwhile, pay out at a rate of 500 times the payline stake. Other regular symbols featured in the game included flags, golf shoes and pints of beer.
The control that Golden Tour players have over their stake amount per spin is good but perhaps not quite as impressive as is the case with some other games. The slot’s five paylines are all always active but players can control the value of their bet per line.
The stake options per line begin at just 1p and reach a maximum of £1, with a variety of other alternatives in between. That means that a player’s bet per spin can be anything between 5p and £5.
What We Think
Sure to be a hit with any fans of the game of golf, Golden Tour is a fun and interestingly themed five reel game. Gameplay is engaging if a little repetitive and the on point bonus round helps to add some extra interest and fun.
Control over betting, however, is perhaps a little more limited than would be ideal and the game’s top payline jackpot of £2,000 is a little lower than that found with other similar slots. All in all, then, Golden Tour is great for golf fans looking to have a little fun but perhaps isn’t the best option for more serious punters.
