Golden Goddess slot has a fantasy theme, loosely based on Ancient Greece. The game has five reels with forty pay lines and is produced by IGT, and has the usual great graphics and sound effects that characterise this leading games developer. There is no real story behind this slots game, it seems to be a romantic saga set in an ancient Greek scene.
The background of this game reinforce the Greek theme, as there are wild flowers in all colours and mountains in the sunny idyllic landscape, and a temple just showing in the cleft of a hill. Symbols include a pink Horse, a white Dove, and the handsome warrior Prince, and of course the beautiful Golden Goddess herself. The lower value symbols are represented by the classic playing cards, from ten through to the Ace. The 3D graphics all become animated in the event of a win, and the musical sound effects enhance the Greek theme.
A Red Rose Starts the Bonus Round
The Golden Goddess is the Wild symbol, and as such can replace any other symbol in completing a winning combination, apart from the Scatter. A red Rose is the bonus symbol that activates the free spins bonus round.
Like many of IGT slots games, Golden Goddess is fairly simple to play. You decide on the amount you want to wager, the number of pay lines you want to play, and you are ready to begin playing. The pay lines only pay out from left to right.
Super Stacked Feature
One of the first benefits you see when playing the Golden Goddess slot game, is the large number of stacked symbols that occur on the reels in the Super Stack feature. Before each spin a symbol is chosen randomly to become the stacked symbol on that reel. Every stacked symbol will change the other symbols to become the same as the stacked symbol. When these identical symbols are placed one on top of the other, the entire reels can be covered, and this will give you plenty of chances for big prizes. It is possible to land three full reels of the same symbol next to each other, which will form a pattern three by three of symbols on the reels. If you are lucky enough to find this on your reels, the reels will become one huge symbol, and you will win a really great payout.
Also a Free Spins Round
If you land nine of the red Rose symbols on reels two, three and four, with these symbols covering all the places on those reels, you will be granted seven free spins. You will be asked to pick one of these red Rose symbols, and it will reveal the Golden Goddess, or the Dove, or the Horse or even the Prince, and that symbol that will also become the Super Stacked symbol for the duration of the free spins round. This round can, unfortunately not be retriggered.
The Golden Goddess game is all about stacked symbols, but it is a game that has become many player’s favourite. Although it is an uncomplicated game to play, the Golden Goddess is probably a good game for high rollers, as well as beginners. As in various Mac pokies, there is also an Autoplay, for players who want to set the game for a certain number of spins.
