Golden Goddess Slot
- Super stacked reels offer the chance of massive wins
- A difficult to trigger, but very rewarding free spins bonus
- Available online and in many land-based casinos
The Golden Goddess slot is an IGT game released way back in 2011 that features super-stacked symbols, as well as stacked wilds, and that is therefore capable of repeatedly delivering some huge wins in base game, when you fill your reels with the same symbol or with wilds. A very good title by IGT, Golden Goddess is an action-packed slot machine that has the potential to skyrocket your bankroll instantly.
The obvious downside to the Golden Goddess slot is that it is expensive to play. There are 40 mandatory paylines and the minimum bet per payline is £1, making the minimum bet per spin £40 in many online casinos, however this is different in land-based casinos which have a maximum price per spin of £5. The maximum possible bet is £800 online. This is definitely a range for high rollers, and players with a budget smaller than £1000 should stay away from this game.
There are five card symbols in the Golden Goddess slot, two medium-paying symbols, Dove and Horse, and two main symbols, Goddess and her Prince. There is also a paying Wild symbol, and a Scatter that awards free spins. If you fill all positions on reels 2, 3 and 4 with the Scatter, you’ll be awarded 7 free spins, and before that you’ll get to pick a symbol which will be your Super Stack during the free spins bonus. The free spins can’t be re-triggered.

The symbols are very often stacked on your reels. This isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but in this case this setup works in favor of the player and can be extremely profitable. Wilds are stacked as well, and this setup can produce some mega wins in base game. This is, in fact, the best feature of the game, the chance to win big and win often in the base game. Golden Goddess can double your bankroll with one lucky spin.
The graphics are very good in this ancient Greece slot machine in which a Goddess and God are the two main symbols, and IGT did well in depicting this theme. All of the symbols have beautiful artwork, so it’s a shame IGT opted to include card symbols, only leaving six real symbols to apply the artwork to. There are some animations as well, and when you fill a 3×3 spot with the same symbol, the area will become one giant symbol.
The theoretical return to player (RTP) of Golden Goddess is between 93.50% and 96.00%, which means this is a higher variance game that can pay a lot quickly, but can also drain your bankroll if you play for extended periods of time. In any case, the game does feel rewarding and can splash some mega wins repeatedly, so it’s a good choice for every slot player who’s looking for a little excitement, especially if one is a fan of ancient Greece and mythology-themed slots. Most importantly, this slot game is easy to play, and there’s nothing left for you to do other than spin the reels and hope for many stacked symbols of the same kind.
