Important symbols in MegaJackpots Golden Goddess:

Golden Goddess is connected to a progressive jackpot from MegaJackpots, which is infamous for its massive jackpots (obviously, it’s in the name). With every spin, you have a chance of landing a huge payout – but the bigger your bet, the better your chances. To win the big jackpot, you need to land MegaJackpots Wilds on all 15 reel positions. The Golden Goddess slot has an RTP of 94.75% giving it a medium-low variance, so the payouts might not be as often but tend to be bigger.

Special Features and Bonuses

Aside from the draw of a potentially life-changing payout, Golden Goddess does have another bonus feature that adds to the fun of the game:

  • Free Spins Bonus: land the Rose symbol in all positions on reels 2, 3 and 4 to trigger a bonus of 7 Free Spins. You’ll get to pick one of the roses from the board which will reveal a high value symbol (Athena, Hephaestus, Horse or Dove) and all stacked symbols during Free Spins will transform into the revealed symbol or, if you’re truly lucky, the MegaJackpots Wild.

Graphics and Sounds

Enjoy the ethereal sounds of the Gods with a tranquil harp-based background song when you spin. The symbols are classic and decorated with flowers and gold filigree that fits the theme of the Golden Goddess. The graphics aren’t overwhelming but are fitting as they don’t distract from the real perks of playing: the features and the jackpot.

This is a fun game to get stuck into, especially if you like to wager a little higher… the chances of winning that ever-increasing jackpot are small but we’re optimistic (someone’s gotta get it)! In the meantime, enjoy a visit to Mount Olympus and hang with the Gods for a while, the game is pure fun and truly does fit the bill of a Golden Goddess.
