Enjoy Golf Through Online Slots


Golf is an immensely popular spectator sport and a favourite at online betting sites as well. Therefore there are a fair number of golf themed video slots offered at online casinos. This article looks at some of them.

The Argyle Open is a video slot from Microgaming. This game creates the environment of a major golf championship. The high paying symbols on the reels are four golf professionals. The low paying symbols are also thematic and include trophy, boots, glove, clubs, hole and flag. The Argyle Open logo is a stacked wild symbol. The hole on the green is the scatter symbol. It also activates the multi-level Tournament Bonus game on the second screen, which simulates real golfing experience. In the first level, you tee off and win a bonus depending on how far the ball lands. The second stroke is similarly taken for another bonus. The third stroke is taken on the putting green and awards up to 20 free spins with a 5 times multiplier. The feature can be retriggered. The Argyle Open can be played at all Microgaming online casinos like All Slots, Platinum Play and Spin Palace. Lucky Shot is another golf themed slot game from Microgaming. It has a comic slant featuring a variety of amateur golfers.

The golf themed slot game from Playtech is titled Golden Tour. Golf balls of different colours are the high paying symbols. The golden golf balls are the wild symbol, but substitute for other golf balls only. This symbol also awards the highest line payout. The other golf related symbols are boots, beer, clubs, flag and golf cart. In order to compensate for the limited ability of the wild symbol, winning combinations pay right to left and also left to right. There are a number of scatter symbols in Golden Tour. When three or more like scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels the bonus round is triggered. Here also you play a multilevel golf round. But in this bonus game on the second screen you select golf clubs for the different strokes and earn bonuses based on their performance. Golden Tour also features the Playtech Dollar Ball Game. You need to place a $1 side bet in order to activate the game. You have to select five numbers and receive a payout based on the number of matches in this lotto like game.
