What is this mobile slot about?

As relaxed as the sport that inspired it’s creation, this Golden Tour slot machine is about the joy of the simple spin on a sunny windless day.

Golden Tour mobile slot is for fans of golf as a sport. In fact, we’d go so far as to say that it’s for fans of golfing who have suddenly decided to try out slots as a sideline to their favourite sport.

Intricate and complex, this Playtech slot game is not. With 5 paylines and 5 reels, we have to call Golden Tour a video slot only because that’s what the manual says so. If you were to put our arm behind our back and our face to the freshly cut grass and force us to admit it, we’d even go so far to say that this is almost a classic golf slot in style and play.

Average graphics and simple spins

The graphics couldn’t be more generic if you tried. They almost have a clip art look and feel to them. Which we could easily forgive, if it wasn’t for the catfish, dukes and gophers on the reels. Surely a little more imagination could have come up with some better scatter symbols?

Though it’s only 5 paylines, it does pay both ways, which adds a little thrill to the spins. Beginners of the game will enjoy the simplicity at least as the symbols clearly and easily line up.

You feel the lack of free spin games however. With no multipliers anywhere on the five reels and the click me game barely paying more than 5 times your bet, it’s hard to get that excited.

Great return to player rate

But at least the return to player rate is generous at at 97.71%, but that’s to be expected of a golf slot machine that pays on almost every spin. Not a lot mind you, despite the big jackpot amount being 2000x your line bet, mostly you’ll get consolation prizes to help you continue spinning along.

That said, it all goes back to beginners. You golfing fans who are terrified that you’ll lose all your money in 20 spins, you’ll be able to spin away on Golden Tour slot machine and not worry too much that your budget is getting eaten up by a big bad machine.

A nice easy going mobile slot, for nice easy going folk.

In-game bonus features

Wild: The double golf ball symbol is wild and replaces only the other two golf ball symbols - which are the highest paying symbols on the reels.

Scatters & Click Me Bonus: Three of the same scatters on three consecutive reels will activate the bonus game round. Yes there are three different types of scatters, ones a catfish, the other a duck and then a gopher. You need three of one of them (ie. three ducks) to go to the click me bonus.

Here you'll pick the golf clubs you'll be shooting to get a hole in one. We're not sure how effective your choices are in actually giving you decent winnings as we've never hit anything earth shattering big. Mostly, this seems like a purely decorational features used to remind you that this isn't a classic slot but has something else to offer as well.


Closing thoughts

As golfing themed slots go, Golden Tour by Playtech is a little lazy in theme. However beginners will like it's nice simple spins and high RTP, with little to distract from the 5 paylines other than the occasional second screen click me feature.
