Super Stacked Symbols and a Mysterious Goddess Theme
Golden Goddess is a great example of what IGT does best. It combines solid game-play with a magical, almost mystical theme. This goddess might be from ancient Greece. You’ll see mountains and a domed temple above the reels. Graphics are high quality, and the symbols expand when you cover 3 or more entire reels. Flowing music plays while you spin.
Each time you spin the reels of this slot, a symbol at random becomes super stacked. These symbols can fill the entire screen sometimes – giving you big wins. In the free spins game, you get to pick a flower symbol. This will reveal a symbol that becomes super-stacked throughout your free spins.
How the Super-Stacked Symbols Work
This slot has 40 win-lines, which cross a regular 5×3 set of reels. As you spin, you will see long strips of the same symbol go past. Sometimes these will cover entire reels. Your biggest wins come when you trigger a lot of the 40 win-lines at once with a combination of these stacked symbols or wilds.
Each time you spin, a symbol is chosen at random to fill these long strips on the reels. You’ll be hoping for the higher paying symbols to be stacked when you get the full coverage on the reels. When this happens, the symbols expand, showing a single big version.
You can bet from just 40c per spin.
Golden Goddess Wilds and Regular Wins
Wild symbols show the name of this slot, set against an ornate gold and purple frame. These symbols have the biggest prize by a big margin. 5 of a kind are worth 1,000 coins. They substitute for most of the other symbols. The exception is the rose symbols, which are used to trigger the bonus.
A beautiful goddess is next on the list of prizes. This blonde looks directly at you from the reels. Lining up 5 gets you 50 coins. While this is on the lower side, you will sometimes get up to 40 lines paying at the same time. This symbol, and the next biggest paying one (a guy looking at you sideways from the reels) pay all the way down to 2 of a kind. The other symbols need a minimum of 3 from the left.
A stallion, or at least it’s head, and a dove complete the unique symbols. This game also uses decorated playing card symbols as the fillers.
Roses on the Middle Reels
To trigger the bonus game, you need to fill the middle 3 reels with rose symbols. To make this possible, the roses need to be randomly selected as the stacked symbols for the triggering spin.
There are two stages for the bonus game. First, you are instructed to pick a flower symbol. This will reveal the symbol which will become super-stacked for your bonus games. You’ll be hoping to hit the Golden Goddess here, though any of the 4 higher paying symbols would be welcome.
You then get 7 free spins. These run through quickly, and with any luck your super-stacks will mean full coverage of the reels while you play.
Classic Mystery Slot Design
While this game does not stand out, the attention to detail and smooth animations are classic IGT slot production. Even the logo above the reels has an animation. In this case it is a band of light passing over the golden letters. The sun rises from behind mountains in the background, with a domed white temple visible on the top right and lush gardens below.
Expanding symbols are beautifully detailed. These occur when you get at least 3 full reels which are involved in a win. There are small animations for all the winning combinations. The roses which trigger the bonus symbols also come to life when it is time to pick one to select your stacked symbols.
Flowing music, which has an atmospheric, ancient feel plays while you spin.
Will You Unlock the Secrets of the Golden Goddess?
IGT has a winning formula with their ancient mysteries themes. Their production and quality of the graphics is the starting point. Combine this with solid game play, and the chance of a big win every time you spin, and you have a great game. Here the super-stacks system means you can get all 40 lines to pay at once on some spins. With symbols selected at random for this, those wins have the potential to be large.
There is only a single feature for this game. Here one of the higher paying symbols will be stacked. You get 7 free spins to make the best of your big win opportunities.
