Aside from Gold Trophy 2, we can recall having played precisely one golf-themed slot game ever, and it cannot have made too much of an impression as we cannot even remember the name of it! To all intents and purposes, therefore, this game from Play’n Go has every chance of being the defining mobile slot in the golf genre, and we can imagine that being quite the sizeable audience. If you have played with this developer before then you will be familiar with their visual style, and this game does indeed look exactly like we would expect if someone asked us to imagine a golfing slot from Play’n Go. The features are solid, although not spectacular, but if you are a golf fan this might well be the only option and we are confident that the game will at least be good enough.
What to Expect
It is not just the visuals that have Play’n Go written all over them. This game almost feels like it was created from an instruction manual written by one of the designers at the developer as it has their familiar hallmarks all over it. The action kicks off with twenty win lines which, just like the look and feel, is good enough for most tastes without ever being in danger of being truly impressive. Typical golf symbols then fill the board with Play’n Go’s own unique cartoon style, with the trophy being one of the most important of the lot thanks to the fact that it serves as a wild. In addition to filling in for any other symbol on the board except for the cheque, it will also be responsible for doubling the value of prizes too.
That cheque, somewhat unsurprisingly given what we know of the developer’s style, serves as the scatter symbol and players will always be hoping to land three of them on one spin. Pull that off and fifteen free games are awarded immediately, along with a guaranteed three times multiplier.
The free spins can actually be a lot harder to trigger than it may seem, which seems to be becoming a rather unfortunate trait of the more basic Play’n Go mobile slots. Fortunately, if you find yourself drifting off and craving a bigger win, you can at least make use of the gamble game. They have stuck with tradition here too, as players can guess red or black to double their prize on the next card drawn, or can aim to increase it four times over with a guess at the correct suit.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
Gold Trophy 2 is indeed a decent game that keeps things solid throughout, but players that are looking for something particularly exciting will be out of luck. Indeed, we still cannot understand why some developers decide to make use of a sporting theme and then do not make use of it in the slightest as part of a feature. Even a pick a win putting challenge would have taken this game up a notch. As it stands, there really is nothing too great going on here and we would probably have to suggest that players check out something else in the Play’n Go range, with Gold Trophy 2 proving to be only enduringly average.
