Golden Goose – Genie’s Gems is Microgaming’s way of freshening up some of its older slot machines which had success on the market. They take these games and they add the Golden Goose feature to them, giving you a chance to win more, though they also ask you to pay more each round. The slot offers a theme which is inspired by the usual genie from the magic lamp story. The features include the wild and its multiplier, plus a scatter symbol, to which you can add the Golden Goose features. It’s a slot with 20 lines, which can pay $20,000.
Betting and Prizes
The line bet in this game will reach a maximum of $2, with the minimum being at $0.01. To get to the highest possible wager, you need to have 10 coins in the wager, with their maximum denomination of $0.20 selected. Given the presence of 20 lines, you can spend up to $40 each spin. If you choose to activate the Golden Goose features as well, then an extra bet is used, adding $10 to the bet, taking it to $50.
The scatter payout seems to be the biggest one here, multiplying the total bet by 400x, which should mean up to $20,000 in this game. The wild symbol will pay $16,000, through the 8,000x reward it promises.
Golden Goose - Genie's Gems Slot Features
The Genie, colored in blue and wearing a turban, will give away some of the best rewards of this slot machine, offering as much as 8,000x the line bet for five of them on the same line. Given that this symbol is also a wild, you can get from it help in creating new combinations. Even better, wilds have multipliers, which will triple wins obtained with their help. Don’t expect scatters to get any help from the wild though.
That scatter has a globe colored in yellow, with a logo on it. As long as 3, 4 or 5 such scattered symbols exist somewhere on the reels, you will get paid, as much as 400x total wager. The scatter doesn’t offer any other type of feature.
If you had the extra bet active, there is a chance that a Golden Goose feature will trigger for you. There are four total, and you get one of them at random if you’re lucky. The feature that you get might be a simple one, where you simply get an instant win of up to 2,000 coins, or it might be a choice that you have to make. One feature lets you pick eggs from the five reels, winning up to 5,000 coins if you get all your choices right. Another one can give away up to 11 free games and multipliers that can reach 6x. the last one lets you pick between free spins which can go up to 50 rounds with 3x multipliers, and cash prizes that can get to 10,000 coins.
Theme & Design
The game is a dated one, and even though it has that Golden Goose extra feature included, in every other way it’s identical to the regular Genie’s Gems slot. About half of the symbols are themed, with genies, magic carpets, buildings, swords and diamonds.
Golden Goose – Genie’s Gems gives you an improved version of the original, but you are required to place an extra bet in order to take advantage of that side of it.
