Ugly but Lucrative
There are some advantages with games that just have the three reels. It means there’s a fair amount of space available to play with. At the top left hand corner of the screen are the all-important reels. Then underneath those we get to see the all-important Goblin himself and a right old ugly so-and-so he (or she) is. We also get a box that rather importantly tells us about the wild symbol in this slot. More about that in a moment. All the information about the different winning combinations can be seen.
With only three reels there aren’t that many symbols in ‘Goblins Gold.’ We get the single, double and triple bars, some gold nuggets in bags, a lantern that allows the Goblin to easily count up his gold and then there’ the Goblin himself.
Now you’ll be keen to get to see the Goblin because that’s the wild in this game. It substitutes for all the symbols in this game and that can get you some handy wins. Not just that but the Goblin is also the top payer in this game. If you get three of the Goblins on the first pay-line you get a 1500x win. If that happens on the second pay-line, then you get 3000x your win. That’s not the top pay-out though as three Goblins on the third pay-line sees you winning 6000x your line stake. Now that does mean you have to be activating all three pay-lines so just be careful you can afford what you are gambling on each spin of the reels.
Playing this will cost you between €0.75 if you want to activate all three of the pay-lines and €75. It does pay to play all the pay-lines as it does increase the size of the winnings you can earn. Even though doing that triples the cost of playing (it’s just €0.25 to play one pay-line) but the winnings are 4x.
Although this isn’t at all a sophisticated game, just make sure you know all the rules for it. Have some free games now and see how everything works. There’s no bonus game to find out information about though but as mentioned previously, this is a fairly simple slot.
This is an entertaining enough game but you can tell it’s one of Microgaming’s early releases. If you’re new to slot games, then this is an ideal introduction before trying the more complex games. It’s good to look at but the lack of a bonus game will disappoint those of you used to all those free spins and pick ‘em games.
