Golden Goose – Totem Treasure is part of a series of four slot machines, which Microgaming has based on four of their older titles. They simply added a Golden Goose feature, with four bonus games in it, and they require an extra bet for it, leaving the rest of the slot machine as is, without making its graphics more attractive. In the case of Totem Treasure, the theme is based on Native American heritage, symbols including feathers, eagles, peace pipes and tee pees, among other things. Scatters, wilds with multipliers and Golden Goose bonus games make up the features. The game has 20 lines with 5 reels, getting payouts of up to $24,000 to its players.
Betting and Prizes
The wager system allows you to use only the base game features, or you can wager something extra and you get the Golden Goose bonuses as well. The regular wager will let you cover anywhere between 1 and 20 lines, and to have up to 10 coins on each one. With coin denominations going as high as $0.20, the line bet stops at $2, while the total bet is at $40. The extra bet adds an additional 25% to the wager, taking it to $50.
The Squaw will be the one to pay the most, 12,000x being the jackpot of this slot. It can mean $24,000 cash for a player that has used the maximum line bet.
Golden Goose - Totem Treasure Slot Features
One of the regular features, which every slot machine seems to have these days, is the wild. In this game, its image is the one with the Squaw, the young woman with feathers in her hair. Should you get the Squaw to form a combo on a payline, it will pay the jackpot of the slot. The rest of the time it can act as a substitute for another symbol, but only if it’s not a scatter. Wilds are capable of doubling prizes that they form together with regular symbols, but they don’t do that for their own payouts.
Another one would be a scatter, which in this game is shown as a tribal drum. The only thing you need to worry about when it comes to these scatters is that there are enough of them in place, even if they’re not on the same win line. You get paid 8x, 30x or 400x total bet, if you have 3, 4 or 5 symbols with Drums in them.
The feature which looks like most fun is the one that you can trigger only with the help of that extra wager. You get one of four bonus games when this feature triggers at random. You might get free spins with multipliers, you might get cash prizes, or a choice between the two.
Theme & Design
The design of Totem Treasure is not that great, and that’s true both for the older version and for this one, which has the Golden Goose added to it. You do have a number of properly themed symbols though, including the peace pipe, a wood fire, a tee pee, an eagle, a squaw and the drum.
Totem Treasure, in its Golden Goose variant, will deliver more features to you, with payouts that are way above average at 12,000x.
