The game has the feel of being in a pub. With distant chatter and flashing lights, you'll need to grab yourself a beer as you settle down. The game features 20 paylines and bet choices starting as low as 0.2 coins, but if you want to push forward, you can take a shot at some big wins. Adding to the pub theme, Big Time Gaming's Golden Goals features fruit symbols. Plums, lemons, cherries, and oranges will pay up to 100 coins. Melons, grapes, and pears give higher amounts of up to 250 coins. It's the gold bars that you want to score, though. Single bars pay up to 500 coins, with double and triple bars paying 750.
It's in the net
You've worked your way up the field, and now you can get some rewards. These, of course, come in the form of the wild card. Flaming Footballs will unquestionably turn up the heat. As always, they'll substitute other symbols and can give some big rewards. Three wilds pay 100 coins, four pay 1000 and if you get 5 in a row, you'll get a massive bonus of 10,000 coins.
The scatter symbol appears in the form of the Golden Goals logo. The more scatters that appear on the screen, the more likely you are to trigger the free spins feature. The best part of this is that you have the chance of picking how many spins you get. Flashing lights switching between options will generate up to 15 spins, depending on where you click. Adding to the fun of the game, it lets you use some strategy. The scatters also allow you to win between 40 to 200 times your original line bet.
You can also go for a goal, with a feature that's somewhat old-fashioned, but still fun. Instead of being transported to another screen, the bonus feature takes place to the right of the reels. You'll climb the reels, and maybe get a multiplier win based on your original line bet. If you reach the top of your league, you'll find yourself to the left of the reels. In this feature, you continue to make your way up the table - all the way up to a prize worth 100,000x, but you can choose to collect before you lose or risk it all for a huge win.
The game itself has fun elements to it, and the pub theme certainly gives it an extra enjoyment factor. Some would prefer if it was more set towards a football theme, but the retro feel sets it apart from a lot of modern games. It's not advanced with its visuals, but the fun bonus feature is original. Available to play on your desktop, mobile and tablet, it's worth getting on the pitch.
