Golden Goal is a football lover’s dream, as it takes them closer to the action than they could ever imagine! Okay, so it won’t get you into your favourite team’s stadium, but it takes you onto the pitch where big wins can be achieved from the smallest of bets. Styled on a classic slot with nothing but base game wins, the Golden Goal slot delivers the simplest form of the fun of them all! No complicated features to get in the way of your ultimate goal – landing that progressive jackpot!
Just the three-reels and one-win line cater for big wins, but it’s up to you how much you win. The more coins you bring in to play, the more valuable those symbols become. Powered by Play’N Go, the talented award-winning software developer who were founded in 2005, Golden Goal is very probably the most basic slot machine they’ve ever made, but that doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy playing!
Bets come set at 25p for one coin, 50p for two coins and the maximum bet is just 75p for all three-coins in play. There are various prizes to be won, which increase in value when more coins are activated, which means three separate win amounts. The pay table for each coin is as follows:
What you have in the way of features is a wild (golden football), which can award wins on the presence of 1, 2 or 3 wilds on that single win line, but to win, symbols must land on that win line piercing through the three reels.
Adjusting your bet is going to be easy, what with just the three betting options. Your balance and coin value will be highlighted beneath the reels along with manual and autoplay options. Sounds and the rules on how to play are positioned to the lower left of the screen along with a turbo mode option. And you’ll not have to go searching for the pay-table – it’s stapled next to the 3-reels!
Uncomplicated would be a great word to use to describe the Golden Goal slot – it’s simple, basic and could just be the most basic slot to ever come from Play’N Go.
Slot machines come in different shapes and sizes, offer various bonuses and pays and different levels of excitement, and to be honest, Golden Goal sits at the bottom of that pile. That being said, players who long for simple, nostalgic fun love what this slot game has to offer, especially its top prize of a progressive jackpot sum!
Despite rolling off the Play’N Go production belt back in 2012, the graphics are superb. The symbols on the other hand, are not. The 3-reel engine sits upon a grassy pitch which has been cleverly designed to resemble the real thing! The sounds when the reels are idle can get a little shall we say, annoying, and have no reflection on the game’s theme whatsoever. A jingle of a bell plays out every 5-seconds or so, but when those reels start to spin, a joyful tune begins. If you’d rather not have the sounds, you can mute them with one click. Due to the very nature of the machine, wins will be few and far between, which means you’ll have to put the effort in (and the money) if you’re to win big. As pleasant as it is, there isn’t a lot to keep players going, only a wild and a progressive jackpot, hardly fun-filled with every spin is it!
