Hole in One is a Chartwell game. Chartwell appears to have closed down with the casinos offering their games standing alone with no further updates. Chartwell do not as standard release the house edge information of their games. However some of the casinos offering Chartwell games have started releasing this information. Doxx lists the house edge of Hole in One as 7%. When playing at other venues this figure should be treated as a guideline only as the game may be configurable.
What is more relaxing than an afternoon on the Golf course? Answer – an afternoon drinking beer and playing a golf game!
This game is a 5 reel game, with 9 paylines and you can bet up to 5 coins on each payline. Wins pay in both directions in this game.
The ‘Golf Ball’ symbol is wild and any three identical scatter symbols on adjacent reels awards a random scatter prize.
There is only one bonus feature when playing Hole in One and it is activated by receiving 3 of the ‘Golfer’ bonus symbol on adjacent reels. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing 12 different holes on a golf course. You pick one hole at a time and the game awards you a multiplier based on how well you did on the hole. When you go ‘Out of Bounds’ on a hole the bonus feature ends.
This is another example of cookie cutter slot game design. Why would the bonus feature have 12 holes rather than the classic 18 or 9? The answer is it had to fit a predefined model rather than being designed to fit the theme. That aside, Hole in One is a passable – if barely – slots game.
