There are 20 paylines and you can bet only one if you want, for $0.01 per line, making this a penny slot. Maximum bet is $25. As the game has medium variance and good payout, you won’t need a very large bankroll to play this one comfortably. Most of the time you’ll be hovering around your starting bankroll without going too deep into red.
Graphics and theme
Gold Trophy 2 is a retro-looking slot done in high resolution, with some added animations which just suit the game nicely. Trophy is the Wild symbol and also the highest-paying symbol in the game as you’ll win 5000 coins for five-of-a-kind. It doubles all wins and substitutes for all symbols except for Scatter. Three or more Scatters trigger the free spins game with 15 free spins and a 3x multiplier, and the feature can be re-triggered up to a total of 60 free spins. There are some nice touches with the graphics such as golf balls falling onto the reel set during the free spins game.
There are five main symbols in the game that are depicting the game of golf, and five card symbols which pay significantly less but not that little to not matter. The base game is a standard 20-payline experience where you wait for the three Scatters in order to trigger the bonus feature. The game has medium variance and will often reward you with a nice win. The Wild 2x multiplier helps.
The free spins game originally has 15 free spins but there’s a good chance they’ll be re-triggered for 15 more. As all wins are tripled during the free spins game, any wins involving the Wild symbol, which usually has a 2x multiplier, will have a 6x multiplier. Generally, the free spins game won’t make you rich unless you hit a major winning payline with a 6x multiplier, but the overall feel is that the bonus feature pays nicely and it brings your bankroll back to positive, and then some.
Payout and value
Gold Trophy 2 has payout of 96.88%, which is an improvement over the 94.1% payout of the original. This also means that Gold Trophy 2 is one of the most rewarding classic 20-payline slots and that it’s not only targeted at golf lovers. It’s just a theme, and Gold Trophy 2 holds its own as a quality slot game that pays well. There’s nothing spectacular about Gold Trophy 2 yet it works and will be enjoyed by many as it does everything right and keeps things simple.
