Why is it named Golden Horns, do you ask? 2020 has been a whirlwind of mostly negative experiences in the world, so as a society, we are more than prepared to ring in 2021. As if the new year couldn’t come fast enough, BetSoft has designed a game that addresses the year of the ox.
Laden with Chinese symbolism and their festive colours of red and gold, hopefully just playing Golden Horns will bring us better luck in the future. Since we are still a ways away from the release of this game, there isn’t much detail about the stats, but from what we gather, the game will offer enough features to keep you interested.
The design of the game is far from simple, and you will be met with one of the most well-designed slot games we have come across. Golden Horns condensed their playing area to a 3×1 grid with only 1 payline. Before you jump to conclusions about the lack of potential payways, let us set the mood first and then dive into the features.
You can see kirin on both sides of the screen, protecting the grid and your luck for the year. What seems to be traditional Chinese temples are erect on either side of the screen with Chinese lanterns with the character “luck” or “blessing” clearly displayed.
The details of Golden Horns are impressive, to say the least. Not much is known about it, but even with just one payline, we know the RTP (return to player) is about 96.26%, which is a tad higher than average.

The volatility of the game is on the high end of the spectrum, but unfortunately, we still don’t have the details about the max payout or the betting range. We assume it will be pretty standard, potentially starting at 0.20 and up to 100 or so.
We will say that with just one payline, Golden Horns is taking a great risk. This is why we estimate pretty high returns despite the layout just to appeal to players. Again, we don’t know much about the game, but we’ll reveal what we do know about the features next.
From what we gather, one major feature in Golden Horns is the substitute feature. The wild, or the bull symbol, is capable of replacing and switching out other symbols, except maybe the scatter. You need to have more than one of them active in the line to switch out, but since there is only one payline, we figure it will offer plenty of returns.
Not enough information is available for us to give a precise conclusion and our verdict on the game. However, from what we see so far, Golden Horns is a very promising slot, indeed. The design is gorgeous and really pays homage to Chinese culture and tradition.
