Movie-themed slots have proven to be extremely popular with the likes of Jumanji, Planet of the Apes, Jurassic Park, Lord of the Rings, Terminator, Beetlejuice, Star Wars and Ghostbusters all being made into hit games that can be found in several online casinos.
However, one movie-themed slot game that has most definitely stood the test of time is The Goonies.
The Goonies is one of the most popular movies of the eighties and still popular with generations to this day. Therefore, it’s no surprise to see the success of the slot game. However, it’s not just the theme that has made this game one of the biggest of all time as there are several exciting bonus rounds and features that can land which makes it an extremely enjoyable game to play.
The Goonies by Blueprint Gaming is a a 5-reel, 3 row slot with 20 paylines.
As with many movie-themed slots, the premium symbols on the board are characters and symbols featured in the movie. As well as the standard J, Q, K & A symbols, there are the scale, skeleton, pirate ship, treasure chest and pirate flag symbols along with medallion wilds and the One-Eyed Willy bonus symbol.
Gameplay is made even more enjoyable with the classic Goonies soundtrack and audio clips of ‘Mike’, ‘Chunk’ and ‘Sloth’.
The Goonies boasts a whopping 12 bonus features with six being able to be triggered during normal gameplay and the other six during the One-Eyed Willy’s main bonus feature.
During regular gameplay, the One-Eyed Willy’s Riches symbol, which is located to the right of the reels, can glow green (or red) randomly on any spin. When doing so, the One-Eyed Willy’s Riches Modifier is triggered and players have the option of choosing a hidden bonus of which there are six.
One-Eyed Willy’s Bonus Boost
This feature will increase the size of the bonus symbols for one free spin resulting in an increased chance of landing the main bonus.
Mouth’s Lucky Coins
Mouth’s Lucky Coins are added to a free spin and when landing, they will all transform into the same random symbol.
Chunk’s Truffle Shuffle
Several Chunk Wild symbols are added to the screen and eventually land in certain positions. The reels are then spun with the wilds in place.
Data’s Colossal Symbols
A colossus symbol measuring 3 symbols wide and 3 symbols in height is added to the reels before they are spun.
The bonus symbol can land as the colossus symbol which will trigger the main bonus.
Mikey’s Hidden Treasure
Reels 1-5 all have the chance of becoming wild before the reels are spun with the wild reels in place.
Sloth’s Win Spin
This feature guarantees a winning combination.
The main One-Eyed Willy’s bonus is triggered by landing three or more bonus symbols during a spin.
The bonus round starts by spinning the wheel which contains segments, each featuring one of the six different bonuses. Whichever segment the wheel lands on, that is the bonus that is awarded. However, there is the chance to gamble the bonus that you are given but if you lose, you will win only a mystery cash amount.
Fratelli’s Hideout Bonus
This is the lowest-level bonus. Players are to pick a key which will reveal a cash amount. They continue until they pick a key which ends the feature or awards one of the other main bonuses.
Skeleton Organ Bonus
With the Skeleton Organ bonus, players are to pick a key to reveal a symbol which corresponds to a multiple of the stake amount which they will win.
The feature ends when the player picks three keys which reveal skulls or when they collect 3 bonus keys to unlock additional bonus features.
Super Sloth Free Spins
The first of the three free spin features.
10 free spins are awarded and should the Super Sloth Wild land on any spin, any Fratelli symbol will turn to the top paying symbol.
When all 10 free spins have been played, players have the chance to win more free spins or end the feature.
Goonies Go Wild Free Spins
5 free spins are initially rewarded with this bonus.
With each free spin, one of the top symbols becomes wild. Those symbols remain wild for the remaining free spins with the final free spin featuring all wild top symbols.
Players have the chance to win more free spins at the end of the feature and to trigger the Old Eyed Willy Bonus.
Inferno Free Spins
The Inferno ship is a wild reel which starts on reel five. Up to three reels are wild at any one time which can result in some big wins.
One-Eyed Willy’s Treasure
This is the top bonus of the game but perhaps one of the least entertaining.
Gems, each which are associated with a cash prize, spin around the wheel and players collect the prizes that land. The feature ends when the scale tips and the booby trap is triggered.
