If the name of One-Eyed Willy sends chills up your spine, then you’re probably a fan of Mikey, Chunk and co. Blueprint Gaming have taken players on a trip back to the 80s with their online slot, The Goonies. So pull on your leg warmers and get ready to moondance your way back a few decades while you play for the chance to collect up to x10,000 in real cash prizes.
The Goonies was one of the big hit movies of the 1980s that has endured the test of time. Although some of the clothing and the jokes might seem a bit dated, retro is one of the coolest things around - which is excellent news if you can't bring yourself to bin your beloved acid wash jeans! There are plenty of slots dedicated to 1980s films, including Robocop and Ghostbusters, to name just two. So if you want to step back into the past, the easiest way is just to spin a few reels!
The Goonies is played out on a 5x3 game board which includes 20 fixed paylines. The betting range is wide, starting at just 0.10, so you don't need One-Eyed WIllie's treasure to be able to play. If you're looking for the opportunity to win big prizes, the max bet is 200.00, providing lots of scope for potentially larger payouts. Volatility is medium to high, so there should be a reasonably balanced flow of smaller and big payouts.
One glance at the game will leave you in doubt of the theme, as it's filled with photos and images from the movie. With a faded map in the background, you'll feel as if you've just stepped off the set yourself.
The regular symbols on the paytable don't feature any of the characters but provide a flavour of the adventure that awaits. The low pays are the standard card symbols, while the high pays include a skeleton, pirate ship, golden scales, treasure chest and the dreaded Jolly Roger flag. In this instance, the Jolly Roger is a welcome sight as it's the top value prize, paying x25 for a full line of five.
There's also a wild on the reels, which can substitute for any of the regular symbols. However, if you land five of the wilds, it will match the payout of the top standard symbol, landing you a cool x25. However, with the potential for wilds to land stacked, in theory, you could have the chancer to collect a whopping x500 from an entire board.
You wouldn’t necessarily expect a film from the 80s to be laden down with modern delights, but this slot is crammed full of bonus features.
With six features and a further six bonus plays, you'll constantly be on the lookout for the next cool twist.
One-Eyed Willy Riches triggers randomly on any spin, with the pirate himself swinging across the reels and awarding one of a series of bonus features:
Even if you don't land a win, you could end up with a smile on your face as there are two further features that could be triggered to deliver a win. The first is a scythe that appears to carve out a matching line, and the second is a cave collapse that uses symbol drops to create a win.
Land three scatters, and you'll be playing One-Eyed Willy's Bonus Wheel, where you could win up to x1000. There are six different bonus features on the wheel, which includes free spins, features, cash prizes and multipliers. To find out exactly what awaits, you'll have to give the wheel a spin yourself….!
The Goonies from Blueprint Gaming is a fun slot that is packed with features and bonus play. Eagle-eyed players will notice that the game is very similar to TED, and that's because The Goonies is essentially a reskin with a new theme. That doesn't mean the gameplay is any less enjoyable or authentic, but it's not completely unique. And with the top prize of x10,000, there's a potential for a big-money payout, giving extra incentive to spin the reels!
