Blueprint Gaming, the leading UK-based iGaming studio, has finally released the long-awaited The Goonies™ Return slot. The original Goonies slot, inspired by Spielberg’s 1985 classic movie of the same name, was critically acclaimed when it landed on the market back in 2018 and it cemented the studio’s reputation as one of the top developers in the online gambling industry.
The Goonies sequel takes place on a 5×3 grid with 20 fixed paylines and the max possible win is capped at $/€/£250,000. Also, the provider has improved the game graphics and added a much more immersive soundtrack as well as a fresh batch of exciting bonuses and modifiers that enhance the playing experience.
Jo Purvis, Director of Key Accounts and Marketing UK at Blueprint Gaming, said:
“The biggest game of 2021 has finally arrived and offers a feature-rich adventure that doesn’t disappoint. The original slot inspired by the cult classic film proved to be an overwhelming success and continues to attract players to this day. With this new installment, we are providing fans of The Goonies™ with the sequel they truly deserve, as well as an exciting new gaming experience for players worldwide.”
Created in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, the game comes with the newly-developed One-Eyed Willy Modifiers that can be triggered on any spin. A player gets to choose one of 3 keys and is rewarded with one of the following modifiers:
- Truffle Shuffle Wilds – Wilds are randomly added to the reels
- Hidden Riches – a Mikey Wild is added to the middle reel and other Goony symbols that land on the spin may be turned wild as well
- W-Invention Reels – 2 or more reels get filled with the same symbol
- Lucky Coins – mystery symbols are added to the grid and they all turn into the same matching symbol. There is also a chance cash symbol to be revealed and if that happens, the respins are awarded until no cash symbols land
- Bonus Boost – more bonus symbols are added to the reels
- Win Spin – a big winning spin is guaranteed
Aside from these thrilling features, there are also some extra modifiers that can turn players fortune:
- Scythe – resets the reels into a win
- Shooting Spikes – removes one or more reel symbols to create a win
- Dynamite – when thrown into the grid, it upgrades the win
- Cave Collapse – removes the exiting symbols and causes the cascade of new ones
To trigger one of the One-Eyed Willy Bonus special features, a player needs to land 3 bonus symbols. When this happens, they get to spin the wheel and win one of the hefty bonus games.
- Booby Trap Bonus – players chooses to turn the key left or right and that action reveals a cash prize, another bonus game, or a ‘Collect’ symbol that ends the round
- Waterslide to Wealth Bonus – players get to move along the trail, collecting cash prizes, until they reach the end and trigger the Big Money Bonus round or until they get the ‘Collect’ symbol
- Skeleton Organ Free Spins – 5 Free spins with sticky Skeleton Organ symbol. When the round ends, players have a chance to win extra spins or entry to another bonus game
- Fratelli Free Spins – feature comes with 10 free spins and if Super Sloth Wild lands, it highlights that position on the grid. On the last spin, either cash or Wild symbol land on the highlighted positions. For 5 or more cash symbols, players are rewarded with Momma Fratelli Money Spins. This bonus game comes with 3 spins which reset every time a cash symbol hits the reels. And when the round ends, players get a chance to win more free spins or another bonus feature.
- Final Voyage Free Spins – the round features Inferno Wild that covers the entire reel. It appears on the leftmost reel and moves to the right with every spin, turning all premium symbols into Wilds. After this, 5 doubloons appear on screen and players pick one to reveal additional spins, One-Eyed Willy Riches feature, or ‘Colect’ symbol that ends the round.
- One-Eyed Willy Riches – Hold & Spin style bonus that starts with 3 spins. To reset the meter back to 3 and activate one of the special effects like bet and total win multipliers, players need to land cash or a character symbol.
And the final bonus in the Goonies Return slot is the Gamble Feature that shows before any extra feature starts (aside from One-Eyed Willy Riches). It gives players a chance to collect the feature they won or to gamble it and maybe get a better one or Mystery Prize Win. Also, there is a One-Eyed Willy Exchange that gives players who have won the prize of 15x the bet or higher, to collect it or gamble it and maybe win one of the bonus features.
One thing is for certain, spinning the Goonies Return slot is anything but boring. Blueprint Gaming powered the game with incredible and exciting bonus features that elevate the gaming experience to the highest possible level. This is why even those players who never watched the legendary movie will enjoy spinning the reels.
