Football is easily the most watched sport globally. But after that golf has a fair number of fans. Therefore you will find quite a few golf themed pokies at online casinos. Microgaming is a popular software provider to Australian online casinos and offers two excellent golf themed pokies in its portfolio. If you are looking for a serious tournament then try The Argyle Open, but if you want a fun day on the course then Lucky Shot is the game for you.
The reels in Lucky Shot are set in the golf course. The symbols are quaintly crafted in bright colors. The Lucky Shot logo offers a whopping payout of 15000 for five of a kind win. It starts paying out when it lands on the first reel. The other thematic symbols are the trophy, five different amateur golfers, the golf ball, the set of clubs and the ball washer. Watch the symbols come alive in the win animations, especially the golfers. There is no wild symbol but there are two scatter symbols. Each of them awards scatter payouts when three or more appear anywhere on the reels and triggers a bonus feature. The gopher leads you to a pick objects type of game on the second screen. You can win from 6x to 3000x your total bet depending on the number of gophers revealed. The golf cart awards the free spins. You will get the mini course of 9 free spins or the full course of 18 free spins. Payouts will be doubled in both cases.
The Argyle Open is modelled after a major golf championship. You will find several golf themed symbols on the reels. They include four golf pros, trophy, boots, glove, clubs, hole and flag. The Argyle Open logo is the wild symbol and it appears stacked on the reels. The hole scatter is the symbol and it triggers the Tournament Bonus game on the second screen, which is structured like a game of golf. It begins with the player teeing off and your bonus depends on how far he hits the ball. The second stroke is again taken on the course for another bonus. The third stroke is played on the putting green. You will be awarded up to 20 free spins depending on how close the ball gets to the hole. The payouts in the free spins are multiplied five times and the free spins can be retriggered.
