The Goldilocks slot machine that we’re going to review here is the 2017 version of the game, the one that Quickspin redesigned and released again, just five years or so after the original came out. The theme follows the popular Goldilocks character, a small girl that is lost in the woods and which finds the house of a family of bears to rest in and to have a meal. The story is well known and most kids grew up reading it. Quickspin thought up a game with 5 reels, a total of 25 fixed lines and with a combination of features that brings you multipliers, two types of wilds, free spins and scatters. When it comes to the top prize, it appears that we can expect a reward of up to $16,000.
Betting and Prizes
This Quickspin game gives you a number of bet values that you can pick from. There are about fourteen such values on the list, starting with the smallest one of $0.25, continuing with $0.50, $0.75 and so on, eventually reaching a maximum of $100. Depending on the total bet that you choose, the line bet is going to be worth between $0.01 and $4.
Once you select the total bet that you want to use, you will find the paytable values updated. The biggest one mentioned is at $4,000, coming via the regular wild. With the 4x multiplier possible through the multiplier wild, you could turn that reward into a prize of $16,000.
Goldilocks Slot Features
The wild symbols are important in most slot machines, and particularly so in Goldilocks, since the game has both a regular and a multiplier version for this feature.
The regular wild symbol has the image of the Bear’s House, looking like pretty much any house really. You can use such wild symbols as part of other combinations, since they can be replacements for the symbols that are missing. They don’t replace any of the feature symbols though. Ideally, you should have two to five regular wilds on the same line, forming a combination that pays up to $4,000.
The multiplier wild is capable of acting as a substitute for the regular wild as well, not just for the average symbols. Depending on the number of multiplier wilds which are present, there will be an increased total prize that round. You get a 2x multiplier if it’s just one of these wilds, 3x if there are two and 4x if you get three.
Goldilocks herself has been used as the image of the scatter symbol, three of which are required to be visible in the game in order to get you 10 free spins. A prize that is the equivalent of 3x total bet is offered by the scatters.
Once you’re in the free spins, you can collect the Goldilocks Progress Scatter icon, and then having it appear in a meter next to the reels. You get free spins and additional wild symbols in the form of bears.
Theme & Design
Fairytales have often made for excellent slot machines, particularly when it comes to their graphics. Quickspin is one of the developers on which you can count on when it comes to great looking slot machines, and Goldilocks is a very good example. You have the entire bear family among the symbols, their house, a bowl of porridge, a teddy bear, but there is also a very naughty looking Goldilocks present.
I enjoyed the updated version of Goldilocks, though the original was pretty good as well. In terms of features, average RTP and graphics, I think that it offers you everything you could want from a slot.
