The online gambling industry sees new slots being launched almost daily. Still, not many providers can hold a candle to Pragmatic Play, a brand that launches up to five new premium quality releases every month. In its latest Goblin Heist Powernudge slot, the provider brought back one of the player’s favorite features.
You guessed it, the PowerNudge trademarked feature is back! This time, goblins are taking the show set across a 5×3 grid with 10 paylines that are home to goblin bombs, keys and maps. Lucky players who help the trickery goblin in his vicious castle heist might unlock the game’s maximum winning potential of up to 4,000x the stake.
Goblins are small, grotesque creatures appearing in the folklore of multiple cultures, usually with malicious tendencies. The provider did an excellent job transferring them to reels, but in moderation instead of in their full gruesome as seen in Evil Goblins xBomb slot by Nolimit City.
Thanks to this fact, this game is suitable for the squeamish players as well since the visuals aren’t repellent at all. Especially in the bonus round where the only goblin remaining is the one lurking on the right corner of reels. As expected, the graphics and animation are superb, while the soundtrack rises the suspension and follows the theme completely.
Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer at Pragmatic Play, had this to say about the new addition to the brand’s portfolio:
“We’re thrilled to bring back the PowerNudge™ mechanic in an entirely new playing environment, putting players at the heart of the action with a gaming experience that adds an extra layer of immersion and anticipation as the reels shift. Goblin Heist PowerNudge™ offerscrisp visuals, a captivating theme and intuitive sound effects, as well as a progressive feature that really stirs up the excitement.”
The Super-Exciting Bonus Features
To recall, the PowerNudge tool creates opportunities for even further payouts after every winning combination by nudging reels that participate in the successful spin a position down, while the non-winning reels respin. Nudging continues until there are no more winning combinations to be formed.
The most important card is Golden Lion Mystery Money able to appear on all five reels because it triggers the Money Respin feature every time 6 or more of these symbols land together. When this feature activates, the scenery changes to a cave filled with treasures while all regular symbols vanish from the reels leaving just Money Symbols or blank spaces behind.
A line of multiplier values starting at x1 appears above main reels, one for each reel.
Mystery Money Symbols land with different modifiers during the respin feature:
- Cash value up to 50x the total bet
- Local multiplier with 1x, 2x or 3x value which is added to the multiplier above the respective reel
- Global multiplier with 1x, 2x or 3x value added to all multipliers above each reel
After Money Symbols reveal cash values and multipliers are added, they transform back to their lion state and drop down one position while all other reels respin. The feature ends when all existing Money Symbols fall off the bottom of the reels and no new one land. To make things better, the Bonus Buy option for 100x the bet cost is included, as well as Ante Bet that increases the stake by 25% but in return adds more Mystery Money symbols to the reels, thus increasing the chance of triggering the bonus game naturally.
Goblin Heist PowerNudge slot features the original theme and thrilling gameplay enhanced with exciting bonus rounds. Once again, Pragmatic Play outdid itself and transformed something cringy like goblins into the vessels of fun and potentially great wins.
