Everyone likes to be indulged once in a while, and the Golden Goddess slot machine gives you some soothing "me time" in Ancient Greece. Okay, you won’t actually go to Greece (it’s a long way away), and you obviously won’t travel back in time. But this game is so atmospheric that you will daydream, imagining that you share a goblet of fine wine with the Gods on Mount Olympus.

The five-reel, three-row TwinSpires Casino slot is artistically impressive, set in a lush valley with mountains beyond, all underneath a glorious sunset. Developer IGT has done a good job with the delightful symbols, including the beautiful Golden Goddess herself and a handsome prince (are they an item? Who knows).

With 40 paylines, you choose how much to bet on each line, starting at 0.01, so 40 cents a bet, and rising to $5 - a rather high-rolling $200 a spin.

How to Play the Golden Goddess Slots

Your main screen features some relaxing music with singing birds in the background, and it won’t be long for you to be swept along by the relaxing gameplay. Even the occasional thunderclap won’t rouse you from your leisurely spinning.

The symbols are set against rich purple and gold reels, adding to the opulence of the design. Lower symbols are the oft-used cards of 10 through A, but even these have delicate flowers drawn on them. The white dove is next on the symbol hierarchy, followed by Pegasus the winged horse, the prince, and the Goddess.

Match any of the symbols from left to right in the usual way to win prizes ranging from 11x your bet for five 10s up to 50x for the Goddess.

But the addition of the Golden Goddess Wild symbol, featuring the game logo, adds multiple more ways to win on any given spin, substituting as it does for all other symbols apart from the Scatter. That Scatter, a blooming red rose, appears on reels 2, 3, and 4 only. If it fills all three, you enter the free spins bonus (seven of them).

Click on one of the rose symbols to reveal one of the higher paying symbols beneath, and now stacks of symbols transform into this chosen symbol during the free spins, providing you with the chance to win substantial winning combinations.

Patience is Needed for the Golden Goddess

As relaxing as the Golden Goddess slot machine is, don’t expect it to shower you with heavenly cash on every spin. The return to player percentage is set at 94.91%, meaning there are few payouts of huge value. Instead, you need to hold your nerve and wait for a big win via the bonus round or from landing five of one of the highest paying symbols on a payline.

The low RTP also hints at a high volatility slot, so expect that multiple sessions on the Golden Goddess slot will have wildly different results. But, if you like a gamble, this is not necessarily a bad thing. With that in mind, serious slot players will love the action.
