Golden Girls Slot Review
Finally a video slot about the iconic sitcom “The Golden Girls”! The four beloved elderly ladies spice up the beach scene by hitting the surf in scantily clad bikinis – this is sure to attract a niche market…wait, what? Booming Games apparently went in a different direction? Aw, cmon – what's better than Betty White? Well, I guess we will have to settle for gorgeous young ladies, still in itsy bitsy bikinis and an idyllic paradise setting. Yes, I know this sounds extraordinarily appealing, but are their conversations good? And, there are no funny subplots about lost dentures or hip displacements! Nonetheless, despite my initial disappointment, I gave this slot a chance and was captivated. Fighting off my guilt of moving on from my childhood crushes (what can I say? I was a strange kid), I began to play. Immediately, I felt chilled and relaxed. The memories that came flooding back to me were of sipping a Mai Tai on a Hawaain beach. I thought this a bit odd as I have never been to Hawaii… Maybe that's just an indication of how evocative the game is or of how desperate I am to travel; either way, my blood pressure dropped 20 points. So dude, just put on some sunscreen, grab your favorite embarrassing swimsuit and chillax!
This 5 reel, 25 payline slot has some alluring symbols. First and foremost are the titular golden girls. Having apparently dipped into the psyche of red-blooded males worldwide, these ladies are stunningly designed. Two brunettes and a blonde are joined by a beach ball, flip-flops, surfboard and beware of shark sign. Filling up the empty slots are face card letters. The surfboard is the wild symbol while the shark sign is the scatter symbol. Controls are simple and don't raise that blood pressure up. From left to right the options are: Bet Per Line, Lines, Win Display, Spin button, Autoplay, Bet Max, and Gamble.
Wilds, Scatters, Free Spins, and Multipliers are on offer. Apart from the regular wild symbol, Golden Girls offers special Wild Multipliers. These can multiply a win by up to 4x! Unique Features A gamble function is available after each winning spin. The nifty aspect is that isn't a card flip, but rather, a surfboard flip. In a double or nothing bet, you choose the color on which the surfboard will land. It feels fresh and exciting compared to the now stale card flip which is standard in many slots.
The game has vivid graphics and animation with realistic images of the beach babes in a tropical paradise background. The music is perfect for unwinding with a bit of an upbeat beach rhythm when needed. No choppy waves are encountered performance wise and Golden Girls paddles through beautifully.
“Check out those gnarly waves and bodacious bods as you spin to win. Bro – this is the life!” I may not have the beach bod I need, but Golden Girls made me feel like I could hit the surf with the best of them. It's light and refreshing fun with loads of winning chances. So, hang loose and enjoy, this one's a perfect 10!
