Goblins Gold Slots

Goblins-GoldGoblins Gold is a weird little game, but with a perfectly playable atmosphere in it. Created by Microgaming, the gold and goblin themed slot machine will remind you of the monsters from Lord of the Rings, the ones that inhabited the caves beneath the mountains. Gold and goblins is indeed what you’re getting from the symbols of this slot machine, and even though they’re quite crudely drawn, I found myself enjoying the action.

Only 3 reels are in Goblins Gold, but that’s enough to offer you 3 paylines. The $30,000 jackpot is one good reason to play it, the theme is another, and you have a wild symbol as well to help out from time to time.

Features of Goblins Gold

The Goblin is the star of the game, and he’s both going to give out the biggest prizes, and it will also act as the wild when the occasion presents itself.

A wild symbol is considered a special feature because it has the ability to take the role of another symbol. While it’s preferable to have combinations created out of wilds alone, since they pay better, they can also be useful in fewer numbers, as long as the rest of the payline is occupied by one or two matching symbols. This will allow the wild to take the same role as them, and to help them create their combination of symbols, so you can get paid.

Prizes of 1,500 to 6,000 coins are offered to players that manage to land three Goblins on the same payline, and in order to get the maximum amount you need them on the third line.

Betting options and jackpots

You use as many coins as lines that you want active, so up to 3 are part of the bet. These coins are worth between $0.25 and $5, with the bets going up to $15.

You get your chance to win the big prize in this game, but in order to get the highest amount you have to risk 3 coins each round. Only the third line gives you 6,000 coins, or $30,000. The second line pays less, 3,000 coins, while the first line gives out 1,500 coins, the lowest amount.

Design and symbols

The location is some sort of goblin cave, a very inhospitable place, which you can have a glimpse of if you look at the background picture. The goblin is a hilarious little creature, looking more like something to laugh at, than a monster to be scared of. The symbols are split about half and half, with both themed symbols and classics among them. Overall, despite the crude graphics I found myself enjoying the action and feeling for that poor little goblin.

Symbols: Goblin (6,000 coins, wild), Gold (500 coins), Lantern (300 coins), Three Bar (100 coins), Two Bar (50 coins) and One Bar (25 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

I’ve found it an enjoyable classic slot, which I rarely say about these rather basic games. Its crude design is still fun to play on, and the prizes are very good.

Goblins Gold can be found at any Microgaming casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
