Golden Goddess is another slot machine from those wizards at High Five Games, a subsidiary company of gaming giants IGT. These are the guys who bought you the brilliant Da Vinci Diamonds and Pixies of the Forest – they’ve made a name for themselves introducing novel game concepts in packages that are outlined by their wonderful graphics and startling sound effects. Golden Goddess is another success in a long list of top titles and when you see what it’s got on offer in the basic reel game, you’ll understand why.
Starting off with the visuals, Golden Goddess is a very well crafted machine. All the symbols are hand drawn with an absolutely exquisite level of detail, giving you cool and clear Poker icons and a bunch of symbols that are straight out of Elysium.
The grid is set in a background that’s suggestive of the gardens of Olympus and there’s a definite Ancient Greek tinge to all the proceedings. If you like your slots with a whole lot of eye candy, then this is one game that you’ll really fall for.
The good looks of Golden Goddess are matched by the stunning audio effect. This game plays a sweet melody whilst you’re spinning the reels, which comes complete with an epic pan-pipe overtone that could well be played by a bunch of satyrs in the background.
This is complemented by some superb win noises that have more than a few sparkling notes about their production. In short everything about this title is immersive and addictive – it’s a gaming experience that you’ll want to come back to time and time again.
If you like your symbols stacks then you’re in for a treat in Golden Goddess. This is the game where absolutely every symbol is stacked across the game’s forty pay-line, five reel structure. This means that you can hit some absolutely astronomical multiple symbol combinations across the reels, and it’s not that uncommon to see the entire game grid fill up with the same icon, paying you out quite a healthy prize.
However, in order to accommodate this structure the game’s pay-table has been trimmed down quite considerably to fit in these big wins.
In addition to the Golden Goddess logo wild symbol, which also appears in stacks on the reels you’ll need to hit a total of nine bonus symbols – yes, these are in stacks – to make it into the game’s free spin round. Here you get a standard seven free spins with no chance to re trigger, with a rather clever little mechanism that can really help you pull the big wins out in this feature.
When you stop in the necessary bonus activating scatters, you’ll be asked to select one of them, which in turn will reveal one of the regular game symbols.
This symbol is then super-stacked for the duration of the bonus, which means it appears in huge stacks on the reels, greatly increasing your chances of hitting a massive multi-line combination with the said symbol.
If you manage to pick one of the jackpot symbols then you know you’re going to be in for a very good time on the reels here.
Slot Professor Says
I like Golden Goddess. There’s so much to get your teeth into in the base game that it’s very difficult to find a single fault with this machine. Yes, it can be just a little bit annoying when you get a stack of symbols slamming into that second reel that don’t match any of the first – but remember, this is no different from any other losing spin on a slot, and you’re always going to get losing spins.
The thing I like best about Golden Goddess is that you seem to win a lot on this game – although the prizes are quite small, you go on lovely little steady runs of wins that slowly build up your bankroll. You don’t have to worry about getting into the bonus game, but you do have to be aware that this game is another one that can take you money in rather sudden style so it is best to not expose yourself to too much risk with every spin. If you do make it all the way into the bonus round, then this is one place you’re guaranteed wins, even if you do pick one of the lower paying symbols.
However, even though there is a lot of winning potential in this game, you’re never going to make a lot of money from it. Believe it or not this is quite a low variance game and can be quite a good slot to play when your cash is running low. Definitely up there with the likes of Da Vinci Diamonds and Pixies of the Forest this is a game to be enjoyed.
