- A slot from a smaller software developer with a fun theme
- Some interesting features and enjoyable gameplay seem promising
- Let down by poor payouts and a low RTP
Royal Goose slot comes from a software developer you probably haven’t heard of before, Cayetano Gaming. However, just because they’re a small company it doesn’t mean they can’t produce a great game and I wanted to give them a full review to see if that’s the case here.
Things look promising from the start, with an impressive design and nice graphics. The theme is loosely based on Jack and the Beanstalk, a story I’m sure you’re all familiar with. There are 5 reels here with 3 rows providing 20 paylines, and you must get a winning combination along these from left to right using the base symbols, listed as follows in ascending order based on their value:
- 10 (lowest value)
- Wild (highest value)
The Wild symbol in Royal Goose slot is significantly more valuable than the other symbols in the game, and also substitutes for all of the paying symbol in a winning combination. There are a few other symbols though too which I’ll explain more on now.

Royal Goose Slot Bonuses and Features
Simpleton Bonus. This Bonus is triggered when the Simpleton symbol lands on reel 3. You must pick a tree and branches and work your way to the top in order to find the Royal Goose Prize worth 100x your stake. If you choose wrong, the Old Grey Man can randomly appear to give you another chance at finding the right path.
Tasks Bonus. To trigger this Bonus, you need to land 3 Tasks symbols anywhere on the reels at the same time, activating King’s Task 1. If you land 4, you’ll activate King’s Task 2 and landing 5 will activate King’s Task 3. As each task increases, so does the potential to win more money.
- Task 1 offers up to 20x your stake. The Thirsty Man may drink up to 15 wine barrels in order to give you this prize.
- Task 2 offers up to 50x your stake. This time it’s a hungry man eating up to 15 platters of bread that gives you the reward.
- Task 3 is the interesting one, offering up to 1,000x your stake. You must work your way up 15 tower floors in the magic ship to win this prize.
Also note that the Old Grey Man can appear and move you up to 5 steps at a time through the Bonuses.
Free Spins Bonus. To activate this, you need 3 Free Spins Symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4, giving you 10 Happy Princess Free Spins (yes, that’s what they’re actually called). In this Bonus, and Wild symbols that land on the reels will remain there for the entire Bonus. Not only that, but for every spin that results in new locked Wilds, one of the low value symbols in the game will be removed from the reels, hopefully improving your win.
Royal Goose slot from Cayetano Gaming caught my attention thanks to a good range of feature available and a fun theme. It looked like it had potential and was worth giving a full review on, despite coming from a lesser-known software developer. The features on offer here are actually quite fun and very varied, all tying into the theme and making for enjoyable gameplay. However, there is a pretty big problem. The payouts are outright poor. The maximum payouts on offer are low, most of the features don’t even offer close to the maximum payout, and the RTP is less than 95% which is disappointing. I think it’s a real shame as the slot has a lot of potential, but as it stands it’s just not worth playing because you’re unlikely to get anything out of it.
