IGT’s Mega Jackpots Golden Goddess is the progressives version of their earlier hit slot, also called Golden Goddess, but without the jackpot element. It has the same graphical sophistication of its predecessor and spins 5 reels with 40 active paylines. The slot has a terrific feature called Super Stacks, which form super long stacks of matching symbols on each reel. The slot is configured so that the higher a player bets, the better are odds of winning the mega jackpot.
MegaJackpots Golden Goddess has a slew of other enriching features like wild symbols, a scatter symbol, and free spins. Aphrodite can bless players up to a 1,000 times with the regular combinations, but the biggest deal here is the progressive jackpot. MegaJackpots is a worldwide progressive jackpot network linked with many games under Canadian jurisdiction. Though the game has a high average RTP of 96%, it comes down significantly if you factor in the jackpot.
Though the betting range is between $0.40 and $1,200.00, the coins value can be changed from $0.01 to $30. Players can therefore get used to the slot and build up their wagers, slowly. For the most part, MegaJackpots Golden Goddess is more for high-rollers, who are more comfortable with high-stakes gaming. Low-rollers will be lucky to win small but very frequently.
This slot does not offer very high prizes, if you’re playing for the jackpot alone. The jackpot pays out a maximum of 1,000 coins, which translates into $30,000 cash. If you can afford the stakes, this is good enough of a reason to give this game a spin. The regular payouts are given by the landed combination of icons across 3, 4, and 5 reels.
The winged horse pays out between 5 and 30 times the wagered amount, depending on the numbers of straight reels it lands on. The peace-loving dove has a slightly lower payout from 5 times to 20 times the bet amount for appearing between 3, 4, and 5 reels. The royal card symbols A, K, Q, J, and the common ten pay out a relatively lowly 1 to 11 times the bet for the 10s, which progressively goes up to 5 times to 15 times for getting straight As.
The man of the house, if he can be called that in the presence of Aphrodite, pays out 3 times the bet amount for two matching icons. However he multiplies it by 40 for 50AK. When the golden goddess herself lands across consecutive reels, she blesses players with wins between 4 times and 50 times their original investment.
When wild symbols randomly become MegaJackpots symbols, which can happen during the free slots bonus, players can win from 2 to 1,000 times the line bet. This is a cash reward for landing the symbols on active win lines. If the MegaJackpot symbols fill the entire screen, you’ve won the progressive jackpot.
This is a feature that will be extremely useful to players during the course of the game. When it forms a combination of the same 5 symbols, the wild pays out the best fixed amount configured in the slot, which is 1,000 coins. Though the wild only appears once or twice as a substitute for other icons, it participates in various victorious combinations formed on the paylines that it is on. Of course, a wild cannot function like a scatter or be able to trigger any other feature.
Players do not get the benefit of such a feature in most slots, but Aphrodite showers it on you with her benevolence. Super Stacks are multiple versions of the same symbol on a majority of spots across the reels, and which can be triggered randomly, and which happens frequently. Even wild symbols and the mega jackpot icons can appear super-stacked and produce good payouts. However, the scatter symbol is never super-stacked.
Players can trigger 7 free spins by getting Red Rose scatters to land in a super stack on the three center reels and rows of the game. One icon will be transformed into a MegaJackpot symbol randomly whenever and wherever it lands. The free spins round cannot reactivate since there are no bonus symbols on the reels during the feature. The free spins can only be played at the same number of lines and the same line bet as the spin that triggered it.
IGT does a good job of converting its popular land-based casino’s slot games to digital video slots. It also does well in ensuring that all players of this popular game can enjoy it while on the move, as is the trend across the globe. Towards this end, IGT has fully-optimized MegaJackpots Golden Goddess to be easily accessible and enjoyed across all mobile devices.
The game is totally compatible with all contemporary mobile operating platforms such as Android, Windows Phone, iOS, apart from Blackberry. The game is even coded in HTML5, which auto-adjusts the gaming platform to the small screen so it can be enjoyed in full HD and sound clarity. Players just need internet connectivity to ensure a smooth online gaming experience on any Smartphone or tablet.
This IGT jackpot slot version of Aphrodite gives players a good opportunity to target the jackpot payout. Apart from the Super Stack feature, the other elements of the game are less than remarkable as far as winning opportunities go, though they do make for entertaining gaming. Less magnanimous wins are ideal for players who do not particularly aim for the progressive jackpot.
