Game of the Week – The Golden Inn
With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, I decided to take a look at the Irish-themed, The Golden Inn. The Golden Inn is the latest 5-Reel, 80 payline pokie from Nucleus Gaming. While the game doesn’t feature a ton of bonus features, the ones it does have are extremely lucrative. Let’s take a look at this game and the potential prizes available.
Grab a Pint and Get Lucky with The Golden Inn
The Golden Inn is set in an Irish Pub and has catchy Irish background music. It’s like you went to the pub and a local band was performing. The game is good for all bankrolls, with stakes ranging from .10 to $20 per spin.
The symbols for this game are pretty simple. You have Royals, bars, beer kegs, pints of beer, leprechaun hats, and pots of gold.
One thing you’ll notice right away is that the symbols are a bit lower-paying than your average pokie. Except for the top symbols, you will only turn a profit on a single line 5 of a kind. Otherwise, you will have to make multi-line wins to turn profits.
The four-leaf clover is the wild for this game and replaces all symbols except for the scatter. Fortunately, you will see the clover pop up a lot, giving you a lot of chances for multi-line wins. The wilds helped me secure quite a few nice wins that kept my bankroll afloat until I was able to reach the free spins game.
Lucky Horseshoe Free Spins
The Lucky Horseshoe is the scatter for this game. When you land three or more on the board, you will trigger the Lucky Horseshoe Free Spins game. You will get 8, 12, or 20 free spins based on catching 3, 4, or 5 scatters. Also, scatter pay, with a top prize of 96x your initial bet.
During free spins, you can also catch multiplier wilds of 2x and 3x. These wilds are stackable, meaning they can increase the overall multiplier. For example, if you get three 3x multiplier wilds, your total win will be multiplied by 27, or 3x3x3. Free spins are not re-triggerable.
It took a while to trigger, but I was finally able to unlock this feature with 8 free spins. The first time I triggered it, I won 62x my bet. On the second time I triggered the feature, I won around 33x my initial bet.
As already stated, it took a while to unlock this feature. However, it was well worth the wait as the feature turned my losing session into a profitable one.
The Golden Inn a Relaxing and Profitable Pokie
On the surface, The Golden Inn isn’t going to be the most exciting of pokies. The theme is fairly average and the music is fairly tame. Other than the buildup to unlocking the free spins game, this game doesn’t have a ton of exciting features.
However, the game does provide some nice payouts. I was able to unlock a couple of big wins in the base game along with several nice wins that helped keep me afloat. However, the bonus game is where you will make most of your money.
The Golden Inn is a pokie that’s more for the grinder looking to unlock online casino bonuses. Nucleus Gaming doesn’t release the RTP of its machines but I would estimate this to be around 95.75%. It’s almost a perfect medium variance pokie.
The Golden Inn is open for business at Wild Card City, King Johnnie Casino, and all Australian online casinos offering Nucleus gaming. If you’re looking for a nice relaxing game that gives you a great chance of getting lucky, this game may be for you.
