Golden Offer is a neat little slot with great features, high volatility, and a decent RTP (96.03%).
Golden Offer is a fairly generic Chinese themed slot, using mostly the imagery of Chinese statuary, pearls and the ying-yang symbol. As with most of this kind of slots, the colour scheme is all red and gold and there are coins with square holes in them all over the shop when you hit a big win.
Despite using many of the same design elements as other slots in its thematic ballpark, Golden Offer does feel a little different thanks to its subtle changes to the theme. The backgrounds are stone walls instead of the usual rooftop scene, and there are no red curtains anywhere to be seen (both being the basic version of the backdrop for a theme of this kind).
Overall, it is a classy version of an otherwise somewhat overtired theme.
The graphics are one of the main draws for Golden Offer. With very little flare, they are beautifully designed examples of understatement. The background and reels go well together, and the visuals avoid clashing and work nicely as a group.
The animations are done with a similarly light touch. The reels have a satisfying weight to their spins, with a well-designed system to slow down and emphasise the tension when the Bonus symbols start falling.
The sounds work well with these animations, tying the whole thing together. It cannot be stressed enough how much a good set of spin and win sounds can elevate a simple slot into an immersive experience.
Red Tiger Gaming has opted for an unusual set up of reels in Golden Offer. The 3-5-5-5-3 structure makes an elongated octagon of the base game. There are forty win lines across these unusual reels.
To spice up the play, there is the Golden Offer bonus which is an interesting twist on the bonus genre, playing like a miniature Deal or No Deal. There are also a number of randomly triggered features. All this is covered in detail in the section below.
The gameplay overall is interesting enough to keep players immersed, while also giving the basics the room they need to work.
The Wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols except the Golden Offer symbol.
Three Bonus symbols trigger a unique bonus game: the Golden Offer Bonus. During this bonus, four monetary bonuses are randomly generated. The player is offered them one by one and can accept the offer, or reject it in favour of the next one. The last offer is automatically accepted if the player reaches it.
There are also four lion features. These features are triggered at random and occur before the reels stop.
The Special Reels Feature removes all low value symbols, making for bigger wins. The Lion’s Nudge moves the reels to ensure the largest possible wins. Wild Reels turn select reels into all Wilds. Finally, Swap Tiles switches out random tiles with high-value symbols.
