The Argyle Open comes from Microgaming. This slot was designed based on a fictional golf tournament, and it features images of golf players and of the competition in general. It looks like an average title, at least if you just check out its design, with its characters that look like they were painted, not drawn. It’s not a theme without competition, but there aren’t that many slots to do it well. Game’s features have the scatter, a bonus feature with free spins and with multipliers, plus a stacked wild. 40 lines are used on 5 reels, payouts getting up to $2,500.
Betting and Prizes
The Argyle Open slot will require small value coins, of up to $0.05, but you can have 10 of them per line, so you at least get to wager up to $0.50 here. A betting range of $0.01 to $20 is possible, since 40 lines can accept that maximum line bet.
Stacked wilds will be responsible for offering the 1,000x top payout available here, which can turn into $500 for a single combo. It gets to $2,500 during free spins, where multipliers are present. Keep in mind that the slot forms these combinations through stacked icons, so multiple prizes will usually be offered when the symbols are in place.
The Argyle Open Slot Features
I recommend keeping an eye out for the stacked wild symbol, easy to recognize since it’s the only one to appear this way, and it is also the only one which is stacked on the reels. The formation of a combo which has only wilds in it will give you a prize of 1,000x. Otherwise, wilds will be capable of replacing all other symbols that the game considers regular, so not scatters.
The scatter will have the golf ball in view for you, and it will be the symbol that you can use no matter where it’s landed. Should you get 2 to 5 golf ball symbols in view, you will get paid 2x to 100x what the wager was.
With 3 to 5 scatters, there is also the Tournament Bonus to trigger and go through. You will get a golf themed feature, where you have to complete three holes in just as many stages. This feature will decide how big a prize you will get, plus how many extra free spins will be triggered next. You can have up to 20 free spins to play through after this feature, with multipliers of up to 5x.
Theme & Design
It’s a fairly typical design for a sport themed slot, most of them choosing the same type of look and neither appearing too impressive thanks to it. There are images of golf players, of balls and of various pieces of equipment.
The Argyle Open should feel like an interesting title for someone that loves this sport, but it doesn’t compare well with games which are well made and designed for other sports. Golf doesn’t seem to translate as well, when made into a slot machine.
