Golden Games is a high energy online video slot game powered by Playtech. The theme of the game pays tribute to an international sporting competition similar to the Olympic Games. The game does not have a backdrop as such with the reels taking up most of the screen. The reels themselves are flanked by bright rainbow striped lines that give the game a lively feel. The high quality graphics and animation work well and combined with the energetic background music, fit together to create an immersive slot experience.

A 5 Reel Sports Themed Slot

The slot setup in Golden Games is based on the classic Playtech setup of 5 spinning reels with 25 paylines in which players can form winning combinations. On the reels, players will find an assortment of images that all relate to sports and sporting games. Some of the higher paying symbols include a stopwatch, a tennis racket, a basketball and a set of weights. For the lower paying symbols, the game designers have used small sports icons made up of thick gold lines. The icons include a cyclist, a boxer, a fencer, a runner and a swimmer.

Gold Medal Wild Symbol

In addition to being the standard mobile phone pokies, Golden Games also includes a number of bonus features in the form of a wild symbol, a scatter symbol, free spins, and a gamble feature. The wild symbol in this game is the gold medal with game logo inscribed on the medal itself. The wild symbol can be used to substitute for any of the other standard game symbols in order to create a winning combination. The only symbol the wild symbol cannot substitute for is the Olympic flame bonus symbol The wild symbol is also the highest paying symbol of the game paying out a slot jackpot of 10 000 coins for all 5 wild symbols across the reels.

Scatter Symbols and Free Spins

The scatter symbol in Golden Games is the image of the discus thrower. The scatter symbol plays the traditional role of being a bet multiplier and will pay out in any position on the 5 reels. The main bonus feature of the game is the free spin bonus round. The bonus round is triggered by the bonus symbol which is the image of the Olympic flame. In order to trigger the bonus round, players must land the bonus symbol on reels 1 and 5 simultaneously on an active payline.
