Online Casino Games - Rules Explained

Golden Tour

5-Reel, 5-Line SlotPaylines Pay Both Ways!

The objective of Golden Tour is to spin the reels and match combinations of symbols on active paylines to win cash amounts.

To Play the Game:

  • Begin by selecting your Line Bet. To do this you must use the +/- buttons on the bottom left-hand corner of the screen.
  • Next, choose the Number of Lines you wish to play, between a minimum of 1 line and a maximum of 5. To choose the Number of Lines press the Bet One button located at the bottom centre of the screen. Each time you press the Bet One button another payline will be added to the reels (up to a maximum of 5). You can also select the number of paylines by choosing one of the numbers on the side of the reels, each number corresponds to that specific payline and all paylines numerically below it. For example, if you selected Line 4, Lines 1 – 3 would also be activated for the next spin.
  • When you have selected your bets and lines, press the Spin button to spin the reels and start the Golden Tour slot game. You can also spin the reels by pressing the Bet Max button. This will spin the reels at the maximum Number of Lines for your Line Bet.
  • When the reels have come to rest any winning combinations will be highlighted and credited to your balance.  All winning combinations are displayed in the Paytable. This can be accessed by selecting the Paytable button from the bottom left of the screen.

Paylines:

Paylines are the directions that matching symbols must follow across the reels to register a win. You can view the paylines and their shapes by actively pressing the Bet One button. In this game paylines pay both from left to right and right to left.

Please Note: all wins involving standard symbols must occur on an active payline. The Scatter Bonus Symbols are exceptions to this rule. These will be discussed in greater detail below.

About the Winning Tables:

If you select the Paytable button from below the reels, it will open an information page showing the winning symbol combinations and their values. On a payline the amount of consecutive matching symbols you land are called ‘Hits’. So, to use the Paytable, you would reference the amount of Hits you got (i.e. consecutive symbols on a payline) and multiply the corresponding figure by the Line Bet. A winning combination must appear on a payline on consecutive reels, beginning with reel 1 or reel 5. If you land multiple wins on a single spin, you simply add them up as per the payouts on the Paytable.

Please Note: although paylines pay both ways, you will only be paid once for Five of a Kind, i.e. a winning combination that spans the entire reel set.

Please Note: There is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the amount wagered on each payline, whereas the Total Bet is the amount wagered per spin. For the purposes of payouts the wins (as displayed in the Paytable) are multiplied by the Line Bet.

Scatter Symbol and Bonus Game:

The Scatter Bonus Symbols – represented by the Gopher, Duck and Catfish Symbols – do not need to land on a payline to be considered active. When three matching Scatter Bonus Symbols appear anywhere on consecutive reels (starting with reel 1 or reel 5) the Bonus Feature is awarded. In the Bonus Feature:

  • You are taken to a new screen where you will be prompted to choose a Driver.
  • Next, you will be prompted to choose an Iron.
  • Then, you will be prompted to choose a putter.
  • The golfer will make their golf shot and your award shown on screen.
  • If you landed 4 consecutive matching Scatter Symbols your prize will be tripled.
  • If you landed 5 consecutive matching Scatter Symbols your prize will be x 10.

Wild Symbol:

The Wild Symbol – represented by Two Green Golf Balls – can substitute for the other Golf Ball Symbols (Blue and Red) to form winning combinations. The Wild Symbol does not substitute for any other symbol, including the Scatter Bonus Symbols.

The Wild Symbol can also form winning combinations as its own standalone symbol. The values for consecutive ‘Hits’ for Wild Symbols are displayed in the Paytable.

Dollar Ball:

Golden Tour online casino slot features a Progressive Jackpot side bet game called Dollar Ball. This is a lottery style game where you must choose five numbers from 49 balls. If you match five numbers to the drawn numbers you will win the Progressive Jackpot.

To play Dollar Ball:

Select the Enable button from the Dollar Ball Box on the top right-hand corner of the screen. A strip of 49 numbers will appear. Select your five numbers from the strip by clicking on them. Clicking on a number a second time will deselect that number. You can also choose Random Pick to have five numbers selected at random. When you have chosen your five numbers press the Activate button to close the Dollar Ball Menu. When you spin the reels of the main Golden Tour slot game the Dollar Ball Jackpot game will start at the same time. As the reels come to rest the Dollar Ball Jackpot balls will be drawn. Match five to win the Jackpot. You will win a cash amount for matching just one ball. The payouts for Dollar Ball are displayed in the Dollar Ball Paytable, which can be accessed from the main Paytable screen.

Jackpot:

As one of the possible awards available when playing Golden Tour online slot is a Progressive Jackpot, certain information should be made known to the player:

A Progressive Jackpot is an accumulative fund that is built up by taking a small percentage of each wager from all players. When the Jackpot is won it is reset, with the casino providing a base amount (called a seed).

Please Note:

  • In most cases you have to make a specific bet to be eligible for the Progressive Jackpot.
  • In the event of a disconnection in the middle of a spin, the casino software should bring you back to the same point in the game on reconnecting. Therefore, you will be able to continue your game at the same bet and jackpot level on re-establishing a connection.
  • The casino is obliged to inform players if the jackpot is removed, i.e. the game is being discontinued by the casino operator.

The Jackpot for Dollar Ball is awarded and funded as follows:

Seed Contribution (base amount provided by casino for jackpot) – 10,000 coins.

Contribution Rate (percentage of each wager used to fund jackpot) – 10%.

Win Condition (result needed to win the jackpot) – match all 5 numbers.

Win Requirement (how to be eligible for the jackpot) – enter the Dollar Ball Game.

How to play casino games

Here's a rundown of some of our most popular online casino games, including how to play them, and which offers the highest payouts.

Online slots

Online slots are played more than any other online casino games. They’re relatively simple to play, which makes them a great option for beginners. Slots can also offer large payouts, particularly for a jackpot win.

Playing slots online is very straightforward. The simplest form of online slots are three-reel slots, which are based on the traditional fruit machines you may have seen in arcades. In these slots, you’ll see three columns and three rows of symbols, with the middle row being the payline. You place your bet and spin the reel, and if you get a winning combination, you win the amount stated on the paytable.

There are many other kinds of slots online available at William Hill Canada, such as five-reel slots and video slots, but they essentially work in the same way. While the odds of winning at slots are slimmer than other online casino games, they do allow you to play with small stakes on a wide variety of slots. Slots with a jackpot offer a larger prize pool, so let’s have a look at those next.

Jackpot slots

The main difference between regular online slots and jackpot slots is that the former have a lower maximum payout. With jackpot slots, however, there are larger top prizes, sometimes offering up to a seven-digit win on just a single spin.

While 'jackpot' can refer to a fixed huge cash prize awarded during jackpot games, the term is also used to describe progressive slot games. For fixed jackpot slots the size of the jackpot is, well, a fixed amount. With a progressive slot, the size of the jackpot increases each time a player places a bet on the game. Progressive jackpot slots are a great way to add to your online gambling experience. These games can offer some of the most exciting experiences of all casino games, as they provide you with the chance to win the biggest payouts you'll find online.

Online roulette

Online roulette games consist of a wheel with spaces that are either red or black and are numbered from 1-36. This popular game is easy to learn and even easier to play. All you need to do is predict where the ball will land and place your bet. The roulette wheel then spins, and if it lands on where you placed your bet, you win.

You may think that only one variant of roulette exists in online casinos, as this is typically the case at real-world casinos. However, at William Hill Canada, you’ll find multiple variants available, including a European version with one zero, and an American version with two. You’ll also find a French version that offers slightly improved odds if you bet on an even-money proposition.

Online blackjack

To win at online blackjack, you need a higher number than the dealer without exceeding 21. You are dealt two cards and can ask for another card as many times as you want before you reach 21.

One of the great things about playing online blackjack is the number of variants available. At a real-world casino, you’re restricted to just one or two games, but you'll find more here at William Hill Canada, including Blackjack Scratch, Royale Blackjack, and Blackjack Super 21.

Live casino games online

This is where online casino technology really comes into its own. Some players enjoy the thrills provided by a real-life casino but also enjoy the convenience of playing online. Live casino offers the ultimate experience to these players. The only difference between playing live casino at home and playing at a land-based casino is that with the former, the action is live-streamed to your device.

You’ll be playing at real tables, with real cards, and with real croupiers dealing your cards or spinning the wheel. Depending on the game, you'll also be playing with other players from all over the globe. With the ability to enjoy live chat with both players and the dealer, live casino offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy an immersive experience while playing your favourite casino games online.

Enjoy free online casino games with casino bonuses

An online casino bonus is a great way to boost your balance with extra funds and make playing your favourite online slots even more fun. Casino bonuses come in a number of different forms and are applicable to a variety of online casino games.

Almost all casinos bonuses are subject to their own terms and conditions, but what you get back is certainly worth it. If you look at our current bonuses, you’ll see our welcome offer, along with any other offers we may have available. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all bonus, so just make sure to keep your eye on our bonus page in order to enjoy our selection of games the fullest.
