Overview: Golden Goddess
Golden Goddess is 5×3 reel slot based on a Greek theme. The game has the usual mix of playing card lows and the high symbols are all icons from Greek culture and legend with a white dove, Pegasus, a handsome Greek warrior and of course, the Golden Goddess herself.
The slot boasts 40 non-selectable paylines and you can pay from $0.01 coins up to $3.00 per line, giving you a minimum bet of $0.40 or a maximum bet of $120 per spin. The top prize in the game is 120,000 coins.
Set against the backdrop of a Greek mountain scene, this is a gently paced, fun to play and easy to enjoy slot.
Who will the Golden Goddess slot appeal to?
Given you can play for $0.40 up to $120 per spin, this gives the slot a broad range of appeal for New Jersey online casino players of all bankroll levels. What I would say though is that this is a gentler pace of slot, with a generally low variance and with a house edge around 4 percent.
This means smaller wins more often, with the potential for much larger wins. As such, this is a slot for players who like frequent smaller wins to top up their balance, rather than the big jackpot hunter.
Gameplay: Golden Goddess
The gameplay itself on the slot is relatively straightforward and there are a couple of nice touches that IGT have included in the game.
The first of these is the ability to set the graphics to one of four levels of detail, a small point but one which ensures a good pace of play on all machines and mobile devices.
The base game is enjoyable played to the backdrop of gentle ambient music and there are regular wins to enjoy, especially thanks to the Stacked Symbols feature. The game also has a free spins round which has the potential to be lucrative, but which does take a relatively long time to unlock compared to other slots.
The Wild symbol isn’t as prominent in this game as other slots we’ve played, but when it does make an appearance, it can help create additional winning paylines, especially if you can land it stacked on a couple of reels or more. Unfortunately though, there are no multipliers attached to Wild wins, or indeed any multipliers available anywhere throughout the base game or free spins round.
Golden Goddess is an enjoyable slot to play, visually stunning and with plentiful smaller wins to keep your balance topped up nicely while you play.
Special features: Golden Goddess
Super Stacked symbols
On every spin one or more of the symbols on the reels will be Super Stacked across the reels giving you the chance of landing some very big wins if you can hit them across all five reels.
To access free spins you need to land the Rose Scatter symbol stacked on Reels two, three, and four (nine symbols in total).
This earns you seven free spins, with no multiplier. Before your free spins start you can click on the rose and one of the symbols will be Super Stacked for the duration of your free spins offering you a greater chance of success with that symbol in particular.
The Golden Goddess slot logo is the in-game wild and this substitutes for all other symbols, apart from the Rose scatter, to help create winning paylines.
Golden Goddess both sounds and looks visually stunning.
It is an easy slot to love and play and thanks to a wide range of coin values, affordable for almost all slot players.
If you like to get more bang for your buck, then the regular wins on the Golden Goddess slot will keep your balance topped up and allow even a lengthy session at the reels to be surprisingly affordable.
Super Stacked symbols
Always a popular feature, but especially so when you can land three or more Super Stacked symbols from left to right. Land all five across the reels and that is when you can trigger the really big wins, especially in the free spins round.
The biggest letdown of the Golden Goddess slot is its lack of multipliers anywhere in the game.
Even a 2x or 3x occasional multiplier would have livened the game up considerably, but the lack of multipliers ensures that most wins, though regular, are small.
Limited free spins
It is difficult to trigger free spins and you can spend a lot of time waiting for this round to kick in.
But when you do land them, seven free spins is somewhat miserly, especially without any multiplier available.
Few bigger wins
If you prefer slots to offer big money prizes, then Golden Goddess isn’t for you.
Most wins are generally small and it is rare that you hit a moderately-sized win, let alone a big win approaching the 120,000 coin jackpot.
The scores[wp-review id=”4465″]
Graphics and soundtrack: 4/5
A beautifully presented slot, visually impressive and with a gentle ambient soundtrack that doesn’t grate on the nerves.
Originality and creativity: 3/5
Greek-themed slots are not unfamiliar territory for slot players but the innovative Super Stacked symbols give this slot an extra mark.
Play value: 4/5
Golden Goddess is a low variance slot with regular smaller wins which keeps your balance topped up nicely. Even a modest bankroll should be sufficient for a decent session at the reels.
Jackpot potential: 2/5
Regular smaller wins usually means not much chance of higher payouts. This is the case with Golden Goddess; big wins are relatively rare and wins approaching the 120,000 coin jackpot happen very infrequently.
Repeat play: 3/5
Provided you aren’t looking for a big jackpot win and like a New Jersey online slot that rewards you often, Golden Goddess is a slot you would happily play time and time again.
It would be even more appealing, however, with some multipliers added and a few more free spins when triggered.
Total score: 16/25
Golden Goddess has some great features and is beautifully presented and offers online slots fans regular wins and hugely enjoyable gaming.
In terms of value, however, the lack of multipliers, small number of free spins and lack of bigger wins more often do make it less attractive for slot fans who prefer medium to high variance games.
That said, this is still a slot with plenty to enjoy.
