With increased technology and improved graphics constantly being developed it looked as though slot machine games days were numbered, however technology has offered a lifeline with the introduction of mobile gaming. Stripping back all the fiddly mechanics and leaving just classic 3-reel slots is much better for the small screens of mobile phones.
The Golden Goal Slots has all the ingredients that could make this a new favourite game to play: an easy theme which appeals because it’s so straightforward and clear cut; good odds; and high pay-outs!
The Golden Goal along with many other games similar to it that are currently being released has been designed with mobile compatibility as its priority. This has led to well laid-out displays and basic mechanics that make it ideal for players on the move. The Golden Goal slot machine takes players back to the simpler days of 3 reels and 1 row. The paytable on screen is a great way for newbies or veterans alike to get acquainted with games at this level, as well as what it will take to win. Old-school slot game or even fruit machine players will be familiar with the layout of Golden Goal, whilst younger players may not appreciate the simplicity. The slot is bases in front of a football pitch and the symbols include gloves, boots, whistles and balls.
The bonus of playing straightforward games like this are all of the ways to win and how simple it is to manage the game whilst playing. To win a return players must find 3 or more of a symbol, one of every symbol available or any combinations including 1 or 2 footballs. The returns available are quite impressive whilst low value combinations will only multiply your stake by single digits, the high paying combinations such as 3 goalie gloves can return between 100x and 600x your stake. The problem with this slot is the low coin value between £/€/$00.25 and £/€/$00.75 meaning if players want to win big they will need to place maximum bets at all times, this might explain the relatively low RTP (Return to Player) of 94.12%.
Unfortunately, the nature of Golden Goal being so back-to-basics is that there are no bonus rounds available to offer players extra chances to get them big wins. However, the progressive jackpot should be enough to keep most player’s content. In order to get a chance at landing this jackpot players must be placing the highest bets possible and hope to land 3 football symbols. The progressive jackpot comes directly from developers of the game, Play’n Go and will pay out over £/€/$36,000 when it is claimed.
As mentioned earlier the simplicity of Golden Goal may not be to everyone’s liking, especially younger gamers that are used to such variation in slots, however players with experience in these bare slot games can appreciate what Play’n Go have done with this one.
