The Goonies Slot Review
If you’ve ever watched the 1980s movie The Goonies, and even if you haven’t, this slot is for you! Blueprint Gaming have taken the classic movie and repurposed it into an exciting slot game complete with a very generous jackpot and heaps of great bonus features.
With amazing graphics from the movie itself, plus a pumping soundtrack, you’ll be enthralled from your first spin. Even if you’ve never seen the movie, The Goonies is well worth a look as it’s super action packed and comes with plenty of exciting features and bonus rounds to amp up the excitement and keep the coins rolling in.
How to Play
The Goonies is a fairly standard slot in many ways so it’s easy enough to get started. Just choose your coin size and number of paylines, click spin and you’re on your way. The bet size ranges from 10p to £10 per spin so it’s well suited to most budgets and it’s high to medium volatility so you can expect decent payouts but they might not come along all that often.
The main symbols in The Goonies are:
- Pirate flag
- Medallion (wild)
- Treasure chest
- Pirate ship
- Skeleton (one eyed Willy)
- A, K, Q, J
The most important symbols to look out for here are the One Eyed Willy symbol, which activates a huge number of bonus features and the medallion, which can be substituted for almost any other symbol to increase your chances of getting that winning combination.
With a potential jackpot of up to 500x your initial stake, The Goonies is not only fun, it could be very lucrative. If you want to hit the main jackpot you will need to land five Pirate Flag symbols across an active payline. Even if you don’t get the big win, there are also a ton of bonus features that can land you some other very nice payouts.
In typical Blueprint Gaming style, special features abound in The Goonies, so playing the game is an adventure in itself:
One Eyed Willy Bonuses: At any point during your gameplay, One Eyed Willy may swing across the screen and award you one of the following six bonuses:
- Mikey’s Hidden Riches: Turn your reels into fully stacked wilds
- Mouth’s Lucky Coins: Adds gold coins to the reels, which then turn into a random symbol denoting a win
- Sloth’s Win Spin: This will get you a guaranteed big spin win
- Truffle Shuffle Wilds: Adds random wilds to the reels
- Data’s Colossal Symbols: Turns three adjacent reels into a Colossal Reel
- One Eyed Willy’s Bonus Boost: Adds extra scatter symbols to increase your chances of getting a bonus
But wait, that’s not all! If you get the One Eyed Willy Bonus Wheel special feature you’ll unlock six more bonus features. Spin the wheel and depending where it lands you’ll get one of the following:
- Fratelli Hide out Bonus: Choose one of three keys that are presented to you to add to your winnings.
- Super Sloth Free Spins: Play the spin feature and then choose from a set of chests to reveal a prize.
- Skeleton Organ Bonus: Select organ keys to reveal multipliers or extra bonus features.
- Inferno Free Spins: One to three of the reels will be transformed into wilds. After you have played your spins you can pick one of the treasure chests to reveal a prize.
- One eyed Willy’s Treasure Bonus: Different values will spin until they stop on a bet multiplier. This continues until the booby trap is triggered.
- Goonies Go Wild Free Spins: One of the top symbols transforms into a wild. Once the spins have played out you can choose from the chests to reveal a prize.
Graphics and Sounds
The graphics are excellent in The Goonies and you don’t have to have seen the movie to appreciate the quality of this game. Sound effects are taken straight from the film so it will definitely trigger some memories in a certain generation of players.
