Slot Name: Golden Glove
USA Players: Accepted
Golden Glove is a game that is offered by RTG, a popular developer of online slot machines. The theme here is inspired by one of the most popular sports in the United States, by baseball. It takes a look at the players, their equipment, the fans and the delicious foods that one can enjoy while in the stands at a baseball game. Payout wise it’s what you’d expect, going up to $25,000 with its rewards, while the layout has 5 reels and 20 win lines.
Given the theme of the slot machine, it seems to be crafted specifically for the US market, which shouldn’t be surprising since RTG offers their slot machines to this country as well, unlike most developers.
Betting & Jackpots
The two options you are given in this game concern the number of lines you can use (going from 1 to 20) and the value of the coins/line bets (starting at just $0.01 and reaching $5). You can spend $100 per spin, but you can go much lower as well, so it’s not just a title for high rollers. If you happen to land the best possible combo, with a wild thrown it to double the value, you can win 5,000 coins ($25,000).
Having a Batter symbol appear on the 3rd reel should be good news, this being the slot’s wild feature and a way of doubling any combination. As long as the wild is part of a winning combo, it will apply a multiplier as well, and this is even true about the top jackpot. The unusual part is that a wild can even take the place of a scatter symbol.
As for the scatter, the image of the Golden Glove was chosen for it. It works the usual way, with up to five scatter symbols appearing and offering cash rewards and access to free spins. The cash rewards are up to 100x the bet normally but can double to 200x if a wild substitute for one of the scatters.
You need the scatter symbols to appear on adjacent reels, going from the right or from the left towards the opposite side, with at least three symbols, if you want the 9 free spins which the game offers. The letters of the word HIT can appear on the middle three reels, and if this happens at the same time you get 1 to 4 base hits, where runners score a run. You also get one free spin for a feature called Grand Slam.
The Grand Slam free spins come with multipliers at 5x, and if you score runs there, the payouts will be 5x to 100x the bet.
The game looks like a decent attempt at showing off how enjoyable a baseball game can be. 100% themed symbols are used, so they all have a connection. You have the stadium in the background, players, equipment, and fans on the reels, and the quality of the design is good.
It’s a game for a fan of baseball, and I’d recommend it if you’re one of them. Otherwise, the game is good, but RTG has others that are just as appealing, but with themes that are more interesting for someone that’s not into sports.
