Golden Goddess Slot Review
Golden Goddess is an IGT-powered video slot with 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 paylines. Playable from 40p to £800 a spin, you will embark on a mythical odyssey of big wins due to the Super Stacks feature. With a Greek mythology theme, the game is set in a mountainous backdrop surrounded with beautiful rosebushes. I am sure Golden Goddess is based on the legendary Athena. Anyway, the popular slot is available to play on mobile and tablet devices.
The Super Stacks feature is central to Golden Goddess’ theme this creates huge stacks of matching symbols on every reel in the base game to give you bigger chances of colossal wins. Before each spin, a symbol is randomly selected to fill each reel’s stacks. The same symbol can appear (super stacked) on multiple reels to potentially give you huge wins.
The only symbol that doesn’t appear stacked is the Bonus scatter symbol (the Rose) – these only appear on the 3 middle reels (reels 2, 3 and 4). So 9 Rose scatters (as they are stacked) on the 3 middle reels will trigger the Free Spins Bonus feature – you are then taken to the on-screen bonus picker.
Here you choose a bonus symbol to reveal a Goddess, Man, Horse or Dove – this symbol will become the Super Stacks symbol on all reels. Anyway, you will be rewarded with 7 free spins but you cannot retrigger any more. However, the Super Stacks can give you huge wins if the Greek Gods are looking down on you.
Golden Goddess sounds exciting, and it is, but it’s a low to medium variance game. You will get plenty of smaller sized wins in the base game and the occasional big win in the free spins feature. However, don’t expect more than 50 times your stake on any spin really unless you are freakishly lucky! The game is certainly entertaining but I prefer more volatile IGT titles like Pharaoh’s Fortune or Crown of Egypt.
