Many players who grew up during the mid-eighties will be familiar with The Goonies, the blockbuster movie produced by none other than Steven Spielberg. If you haven’t seen the movie, we recommend seeing this kids’ adventure film before playing the game. Though it’s a generation-old movie, it’s still relevant, and you really don’t need to be a kid to enjoy it. If you’ve see the film, you can better follow the slot’s lead characters Mikey, Mouth, Data, and Chunk as they search for one-eyed Willie’s pirate ship and his hidden treasure.
Playing a slot made from a cult movie is always more entertaining, and nostalgic. This is particularly true if the original movie is about treasure-hunting. This is what Blueprint’s The Goonies Jackpot is all about too, which makes the game particularly
thrilling. However, the game is not just a take on the popular film. It combines the narrative of the film with a wealth of features, which make for an immersive gaming experience with the potential for a windfall. Blueprint’s The Goonies is a
5-reel slot across 3 rows and 20 paylines.
Though there is a quite a lot of action in the base game, the number of bonus features in the game, and the time it can take to trigger them, puts this slot within 70% to 80% on the volatility index. The betting window lies between as little as $0.10 to $100.00 across all paylines. You can adjust the bets according to the fortunes of the game, which can fluctuate drastically. Though the base game itself has six random features, it is in the six bonus rounds where the big wins are hidden.
As usual, the J, Q, K, and A are the lowest-paying symbols of the game. The premium symbols are the pirate skulls, the pirate ship, golden scale, treasure chest, and the Jolly Roger flag. The Jolly Roger, along with the wild medallion, is the most valuable symbol. Both the flag and the wild pay up to 25 times your stake if they land across all 5 reels. The symbols can also appear stacked, which takes the maximum potential win to 500 times your bet in the base game itself.
The Goonies also features a progressive jackpot, which will be open to you when you get 5 Jackpot King Deluxe icons on the reels. Once the feature is activated, you spin to accumulate crown symbols. The more crowns you accumulate, the bigger will be the payout. If you can accumulate 15 crowns, you enter the Wheel King section where you can hit the jackpot. The jackpot is a local progressive that is fed by members of the casino, and the value can vary across establishments.
From the film reels, to slot reels and small screen, The Goonies has done it all. The game is fully-optimized with HTML5 and supports all mobile operating systems like Android, and iOS, etc. The game adapts to the small screen, and plays out with original graphics quality and audio clarity on a range of cellular devices from ordinary smartphones to the latest Apple device.
The Goonies film has been creatively adapted to a video slot. There are so many features in the game that triggering them all can require a mammoth gaming session. The wide betting range makes the game appealing to both low and high rollers. With an RTP of 96% and 20 paylines, the game actually gives you many, many more ways to win.
