Skill Based Golf Themed Online Pokies
November 7, 2017
If you want to play a game of golf and the weather does not permit it, there are other options for Australian online casino players. There is an online pokie titled Hole in Won from Rival Gaming with a golfing theme. You can play this game at Australian online casinos like Joe Fortune and Ignition Casino. The highest line payout is 750 times the line bet. You can wager up to 5 coins per payline with a maximum coin size of AU$0.50.
Rival Gaming pokies begin with an introductory clip and this online pokie shows a player hitting a hole in one. The thematic symbols are Number 1, golf ball, game logo, golfer, umbrella, golf cart, golf clubs, caddie and golf shoes. The eagle is an expanding wild symbol that appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4. The birdie is the bonus scatter symbol. Both these are golfing terms. Some of the symbols have enjoyable win animations.
The highlight of Hole in Won online pokie is the skill based bonus game on the second screen. It is a real test of skill with no luck involved. The Mini Golf bonus round is activated by three or more birdie symbols appearing anywhere on the reels. You are taken to a nine-hole golf course to play one hole. Every time this round is triggered you are taken to a different hole. As in the real golf score your payout depends on the number of strokes taken. If you get a hole in one, then the payout is the highest. If the bonus round is triggered with four or five birdie symbols then the payouts are greater. At each round you will be shown the golf ball and the hole on the screen. There will be one or more obstructions in between. By using your mouse you can control the direction and the speed of the ball. Fortunately Hole in Won can be played in the demo mode. So it makes sense to practice for free before you play with real money.
Rival Gaming has launched a sequel to this online pokie titled The Back Nine. Though much remains the same, there are some obvious changes. The artwork is much more attractive. The symbols are no longer flat, but have been given a 3D look. When the reels spin the background of the symbols become transparent and reveal a golf course. A Game Map has been included that shows the layout of the nine holes in the golf course.
