For many, the golf course is where they find their glory – men like Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus have become legends, won tournament after tournament and found themselves rich and famous. Now you too can become as rich and famous as them by playing golf – or at-least, by playing the Golden Tour golf based slot machine game!
Like other sports based games such as Football fans or Golden games, "Golden Tour" is based on the high-class sport, golf, and features scenes and art from the wide world of golfing. The art will let you feel right on the course as you spin the reels, but the real draw of the game is the high probability wins and the chance to win a huge fortune!
"Golden Tour" is a 5 reel, 5 line slot machine game. The game is played using 5 reels marked with different symbols across their side – with each click of the SPIN! button, the reels spin, randomizing the board and possibly creating a line of matching symbols across the five. When this happens and the matching set is lined across one of the pay-lines, either from right to left or left to right, you win a prize based on the line bet you've made and multiplied by a fixed number set in advance for each type of possible combination, with the highest prize being 2,000 times the line bet amount.
As you play, you'll notice that you often win on more than one line – this is because the lines are all individual bets; winning on one doesn't precluding winning on the others. With five lines, each offering wins up to 2,000 times the bet amount, a good spin can win tons of money!
Hole in one
Another chance for huge earnings is the Hole in One bonus game. To win it, you need to spin three or more scatter symbols on three consecutive reels, from either side. When this happens, you'll get to play the Hole in One bonus game.
After you win it, you get to choose which clubs to take with you, after which you'll strike the ball and try to get a hole in one – and the better clubs you choose, the more you'll win. So select well and make sure you do your best to win as much as you can!
Dollar (golf) ball
Winning huge prizes is easy in "Golden Tour", as it is part of the Dollar Ball progressive jackpot. The Dollar Ball jackpot is a shared jackpot being constantly filled by all the players playing all the Dollar Ball games on the all casinos that offer them – which means the pot is always huge (1,760,000$ at the time of writing this review! How high is it now, as you are reading this?).
The bet itself is a lottery type bet – you select five numbers out of 49, and as you spin the reels, each reel also randomly selects one number. If these numbers match the ones you choose, you win the entire jackpot! Don't skip on this bet.
