Fancy a game of golf on a tour? No huh? It's okay. I guess this oldie golf slot game would only attract golfers and golfer-wannabes more than anybody else. But there's no harm in giving it a try. I did... and for quite a while too, as it kept me entertained and continue on playing for days, even coming back for more months later.
Golden Tour, as the game is named, is a simple 5-lines 5-reels slot game with golfing as the theme. Golfers usually go on tours for golf tournaments, golfing promotional events or just for the sheer of golfing at different exotic golf resorts. Just as we gamers would do... the same way we go from one casino to another for the various kinds of games. In Golden Tour, you are playing golf purely for fun and cash prizes. No trophy to be won, no super prize for a hole-in-one. And here in Golden Tour, there can be nothing else but into-the-hole on the greens. Like a hole-in-one, with no misses at all! Yeah... you can never be better at putting on greens than at Golden Tour! Brag that to all your unknowing friends! Tell them "no birdies, no boogies... just hole-in-ones!" Watch for their eyes widening! Hehehe.
Familiar golfing paraphernalia are used for symbols, like golfing shoes, flags, golf-bags, buggies and of course golf balls, in the colours of orange, white and cream, the cream coloured ones paying the highest prize. Playing with only 5 paylines is easy on the eyes. Wins are more easily noticeable than when playing with the usual 15 lines or more, and there are no awkward paying lines to take notice of. So there's never a need for head and neck bending twists to see which line is paying what. However, players should take notice that wins can be achieved in two directions - from the usual left-to-right as well as from right-to-left, but only the highest win on any payline gets paid. So in fact, this is a not really a 5 paylines slot game, it is also a 10 payliner too, not that it makes any difference any way, hehehe. There is only 1 type of bonus game available, the scatter bonus game, which is triggered by 3 scatters appearing anywhere on the paylines. 3 types of scatter symbols are available - a rabbit, a duck and a fish. Beats me how these creatures got scattered onto the golfing fairways and greens...but that's another story, hahaha. Each type of scatter pays differently, from the lowest to the highest, but which pay what, I couldn't be certain. No indication is shown in the paytable, and all the bonus games that I had played and got paid for are all about the same. I couldn't tell if the rabbit bonus game paid more, or the duck... or was it the fish? Ahhh... who cares... as long as you get paid!
So, how do you play the scatter bonus game? Good question! Glad you asked that... hehehe. Firstly, you must get 3 scatters of the same kind anywhere on the paylines. You know that already? Okay, great! The bonus game has three separate screens. In the first screen, you pick 1 club driver from the many shown. No, there's no Man-U or Liverpool club driver there... just golfing drivers! On the second screen, you pick 1 putter from those shown. What's a putter? It's that short stick in the golf-bag, the one with the curved flat head. NO!!! NOT THAT stick... geees! Anyway, on the third screen, you are ready to sink the golf ball into the hole! Swing your arm, hit the ball, and see how beautifully it goes into the hole! A hole-in-one! Waaaaaaait a minute! That hit wasn't using a putter... it was using a chipper! And all the while you were asked to pick out a driver and a putter? Geeees... strange game of golf this is, isn't it? But quite fun anyhow! Hehehe.
