With the summer Olympics fast approaching, what better way is there to get in the spirit of the most famous sporting competition in earth than by playing Golden Games? This 5 reel, 25 payline game from Playtech is the perfect way to start your rigorous training regimen while waiting for the London games of 2012!
You will immediately notice that the theme of this slot centers around the summer Olympic games. Hence, it features symbols representing a sample of the myriad sports and symbol that are common to the Olympics. These include a biker, a fencer, a runner, a swimmer, a weightlifter, a medal, a basketball, and weights. Even though the game appears on our site in the period preceding the 2012 games, the graphics appear more appropriate to perhaps the Barcelona games of 1992. This is not to say that the graphics are poor. Rather, they are more akin to an old-school video game than to a recently-released slot.
Gamers familiar with the Playtech series will immediately recognize this as another offering from the company upon opening the game and seeing the graphics which are familiar and, as usual, solid. These are complemented by a number of interesting features, including a gamble bonus, free spins, scatter symbol, and wild icon.
To get your quest for gold underway, adjust the bet level, number of paylines and bet per line in order to set your wager. Once you have made up your mind about how much you want to risk, click on the ‘spin’ button to send the reels off to the races.
The first of Golden Games’ numerous bonuses is the wild symbol, which is represented by the medal. This can replace all icons aside from the scatter and bonus, which are represented by the discus thrower and Olympic flame, respectively. Have Olympic flames come up on the first and last reels to receive 20 free spins which benefit from a 2x multiplier.
