MegaJackpots Golden Goddess is a progressive jackpot game from IGT with 5 reels and 40 paylines. The game can be played from 40p to £1,200 per spin across all devices including laptops, smartphones and tablets. It’s offers you a Super Stacks feature, a Free Spins Bonus feature where you choose your Super Stacks symbol and a life-changing progressive jackpot.
Visually, MegaJackpots Golden Goddess is like the non-progressive jackpot version (Golden Goddess) which is a land based and online favourite – you are taken on a mystical journey with Athena with a beautiful mountain range in the background. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards, white doves and horses.
You will also see Hephaestus (Athena’s husband) and of course the Golden Goddess (Athena). The MegaJackpots logo is the wild and replaces all symbols bar the scatter (the rose) – it’s also the most lucrative giving you 25 times your stake for 5 on a payline.
When it comes to bonus features, the game uses the popular Super Stacks feature – at the beginning of each spin, the reels contain stacks of symbols that will transform into 1 of the main symbols. All stacked symbols on a reel transform into the same symbol. If you get the same symbol on a few reels, it can lead to huge wins.
MegaJackpots Golden Goddess also benefits from a Free Spins Bonus feature which is played when the rose scatter symbol appears stacked (i.e. on all reel positions) on the 3 middle reels – this will reward you with 7 free spins. You then choose a symbol (either the Golden Goddess, Hephaestus, the horse or the white dove) which becomes Super Stacked during the free spins. The good news is that the symbols are the high value ones.
Now, the different between MegaJackpots Golden Goddess and Golden Goddess is that all symbol positions in all stacks transform into the same symbol or the MegaJackpots Wild symbol – if you fill all symbol positions with the latter symbol, you’ll win the progressive jackpot!
All in all, MegaJackpots Golden Goddess is very similar to Golden Goddess but with a progressive jackpot element – it’s a low variance game meaning you’ll win small amounts frequently. Saying that, you can still win up to 1,000 times your stake on each spin/free spin. The key is to trigger the life-changing progressive jackpot which is no mean feat. If you like jackpots and the theme, Playtech’s Age of the Gods is highly recommended.
