Golden GoalWe are delighted to present Golden Goal, a solid retro-indebted free slots experience from the developers at Play’n GO that is available to play right here at Online Slots NZ. Fans of classic-style slots will be right at home here, as Golden Goal combines classic gameplay with up-to-date modern presentation. As with many of our slots, this game is available to play on either desktop or laptop browsers or mobile and tablet devices, with no apparent compromise in quality between the two versions.
PresentationDespite the very old-school focus and pared-down presentation, the overall graphical quality and presentation is still very good. In this respect, the game could be described as no-frills, albeit in the best possible way. Free from distracting animations and visual excess, Golden Goal instead offers a very clear experience whereby it is always easy to keep track of key information such as the coin value, the number of coins and the winning combinations.
LayoutThis game comprises three reels without clearly visible rows, which is quite uncommon when it comes to modern slots. There is only one payline, with a variable bet size and value. A range of large and small prizes are awarded to lucky players who manage to spin three of a kind adjacent matching symbols. In total there are only four symbols, which are all thematic additions such as gloves, balls and shoes.
AutoplayAs with a number of other online slots, Golden Goal has an autoplay feature. This is ideal for very busy gamers and the parameters are easy to understand and set up, with variables such as increasing or decreasing the set number of spins within the range 10 to 50.
Prize tableThe most valuable regular symbol in the game is the goalkeeper’s glove. Finding three of these will award prizes of up to 600, depending on the chosen bet size and coin value. Next up is the whistle, which awards a range of much smaller prizes - up to a potential maximum of 120. After this comes the shoe, which awards prizes of up to just 45. Finding one of each of these will also award a range of prizes, with a possible maximum of 18 available. In a game such as this, however, even the smallest prizes can soon add up with a little luck and perseverance; besides, it is the wilds that are the real stars of the show.
Golden ball wildThe golden ball is the wild and serves multiple purposes. Firstly, it can be used as a substitute for any other symbol as part of a winning combination; secondly, it is key to unlocking the game's biggest prizes. Depending on the bet sizes, finding three wilds will award huge prizes of 800, 1,600 or even the fabled jackpot when playing with the maximum three coins. Finding one or two wilds on the payline will also award prizes - albeit very small prizes - of up to six and 12 respectively.
