Play’n Go may not be the best-known software developer in the slot game world. However, they’ve produced some great games over time, and we’d include Golden Goal in that collection. The title might suggest a football-related theme, so let’s see if it delivers on that or if it is a disappointing own goal.
This is a small game… just about as small as a slot can get. We have three reels and only one payline to play on.
There are none… well, you can play with one coin here, but it will always be worth 25 cents. The only option you can work with is to decide whether to play one, two, or three coins per spin.
What is a golden goal? It’s a goal scored with the help of a golden football. You will see just that appearing as the wild icon in this game. The good thing about this is that just one will win a prize. Two will score a bigger one. The wild football also replaces other symbols to help attain prizes where you wouldn’t otherwise have won anything.
Not as such, but there is a chance to win a jackpot. This is where we discover why the only available coin value is a quarter. If you play one coin and you get three footballs on the payline, you will scoop the jackpot worth 800 coins. You can double that jackpot to 1,600 coins if you played two coins when the triple-football combo appeared.
The prize everyone will want to attain is triggered on a three-coin bet for getting three footballs though. This gives you the progressive jackpot shown on the game screen. How much might that be worth? Load the game to find out.
This is a different game from many other footballing slots we’ve played. The coin value will deter some from playing, but if you regularly play a quarter or more per spin anyway, this might be worth a try. The odds of winning the biggest prize are long, but you may be interested in giving it a shot. Will Golden Goal be a golden success for you if you decide to play it today?
