The slot has a huge betting range i.e. 40p to £800 a spin! The game has an enchanting Greek mythology theme, and it features a magnificent golden haired Goddess as its protagonist, as well as Apollo, a horse, and a dove.

How to Play

Golden Goddess plays like all regular 5-reel video slots. Before spinning the reels you must first select your bets, which can be anywhere from 40p to £800 per spin, depending on your coin size and how many lines you want to play with. You can choose to spin the reels manually each time, or just select auto-spins and sit back and watch. The aim is to match symbols across fixed paylines and create winning combinations. The Goddess character is the highest paying symbol and it pays out 50x if you land 5 in a single payline. The game’s logo is the wild symbol and it can substitute for all other symbols in the game except for the rose scatter symbol. If you land 5 in a single payline it pays out 1000x!

A note on the auto-play – you have the choice to set it at 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 spins, and for the most part, the game will auto-play itself. However, once you spin a win on a reel, te auto-play actually pauses, and we found ourselves having to click ‘Spin’ again, just to keep it well, auto-playing.

Jackpots

Golden Goddess offers huge payouts via the base game and the bonus features, but that’s not all! There’s also 2 progressive jackpots up for grabs with prizes of £1M+.

  • Mini Progressive Jackpot: This jackpot is awarded when 3 diamond symbols land simultaneously on the reels during the base game.
  • Maxi Progressive Jackpot: The £1M+ jackpot has the same criteria, but the diamonds must land during the Free Spins bonus round.

Golden Goddess is a medium volatility slot and with a max bet of £800 you can potentially win hundreds of thousands in the base game alone. The RTP currently stands at 94.75%.

Special Features and Bonuses

As you’d expect from an IGT (WagerWorks) slot, there are plenty of exciting bonus features:

 

  • Super Stacks feature: Before each spin, a symbol is randomly selected to fill each reel’s stacks. The same symbol can appear super stacked on multiple reels which can potentially create huge wins.
  • Free Spins Bonus: This feature is triggered when you land 9 scatter symbols on the middle 3 reels at the same time. You’re then asked to choose a Bonus symbol; a Goddess, Man, Horse, or Dove symbol. The bonus symbol then becomes the Super Stack Symbol during the Free Spins Bonus game, which lasts for 7 rounds. Triggering the Free Spins Bonus awards seven free spins.

Graphics and Sounds

The graphic display is one of the most striking elements of the game. It’s based upon Ancient Greek mythology and the two characters are Apollo and the Golden Goddess (Artemis? Athena? The game doesn’t specify). The reels are set against a scenic, Ancient-style valley during sunset and is gorgeously rendered. The characters and other symbols themselves are bright and vividly coloured.

You’ll likely also enjoy the jingly music as you play – we suppose it’s meant to echo the sounds of being high up on Mount Olympus, but in actual fact, it’s more like a nice bit of lift-style muzak.

When you spin a win, you’ll hear some thunder-type rumbles, along side the bells of before. All in all, it’s a nice little addition, but the main thing you’ll enjoy is definitely graphics.

Conclusion:

If you’re looking for a medium volatitly slot with huge payouts, a progressive jackpot and a terrific theme then Golden Goddess is the one for you. The signature Super Stacks feature adds a ton of excitement to each round and the overall graphic display is particularly appealing. The max bet is £800, so high rollers especially will be enticed by this new IGT game.
