Microgaming relaunches The Argyle Open as a Tournament Slot
The Argyle Open originally launched in Microgaming-branded casinos in 2010, and the newly updated tournament edition can be played at several of our top recommended Web casinos, including Royal Vegas Casino.
The popular Web pokie is a 5-reel, 40 line video slot centered on a three-stage tournament bonus. The three stages are triggered by three or more scatter symbols. When triggered, players choose one of five pro-golfers to play just one hole.
The aim of the game is to putt the hole in as few strokes as possible to achieve the maximum amount of free spins – up to 20 with a 5x multiplier. Each time the bonus is triggered, the player moves to the next hole on the virtual golf course.
The Argyle Open carries a golf hole as the scatter symbol and the game’s logo as the wild symbol, and the latter can appear stacked to cover an entire reel as a substitute for all symbols except for the scatter. The game carries a minimum spin of $1 and a maximum of $400.00 coins.
The Argyle Open tournament pokie is being used for Microgaming’s $100,000 network tournament this month, with entries into the game starting at $10, with the top 50 players taking home a cash prize and first place set for $5,000.
Regarding the relaunch, Product Manager for Microgaming’s multi-player James Ford said there isn’t a better time for the updated tournament features.
“September holds one of the biggest tournaments in the golfing calendar, so what better time to deliver The Argyle Open tournament slot and the associated $100,000 network tournament!”
