Golden Games is a non-progressive video slot machine by Playtech that uses a Summer Olympics theme. The game has five reels, 25 paylines and a symbol set that includes gold medals, basketballs, tennis rackets, stopwatches, sprinters, cyclists and more.
Golden Games has coin sizes ranging from $0.01 to $5, and players can bet up to 10 coins per line and choose how many lines to activate each spin. Therefore, the minimum bet is $0.01, the minimum bet to have all lines in play is $0.25 and the maximum bet is $1,250. Note that some casinos limit the top coin size to the default $1, which would make the top bet $250. The advantage of playing multiple coins per line is that payouts are determined by multiplying the line jackpot by the total line stake.
The gold medal is both the jackpot symbol and the wild symbol, and as a wild, it can substitute for any non-scatter or non-bonus symbol. The discus thrower is the scatter symbol, and it can pay out up to 250 times the line stake with five on the board. The Olympic torch is the bonus symbol, and when it appears on both the first and fifth reel, it awards 20 free spins with a X2 multiplier. Golden Games also has a gamble feature that lets player go double or nothing on up to $500 per winning spin.
Graphics & Audio
The graphics are colorful but a bit bland overall. The animations on the reels for winning combos are quite good but undermined a bit by the overall aesthetic. The sound effects are upbeat and diverse, and they only play during the spin action. There is no music save when viewing payout and feature information.
The line jackpot is 10,000, so if playing $50 per line, that jackpot can be as high as $500K, and it is possible to hit the jackpot on every active payline. For the penny player who activates all 25 lines, Golden Games can pay out as much as $2,500.
Fundamentally, Golden Games is a good slots experience. It play fast, has a lucrative payout structure and the bonus opportunities are pretty straightforward. The game lacks zest, however, and since this is a fairly common setup for Playtech slot machines from a few years back, it is a simple thing to find this very same configuration in a package that is far more compelling.
