Goblins Gold Pokie

Anyone who has seen the movie Gremlins will recognise the mischievous creatures that populate the Goblins Gold pokie from Microgaming.

Clearly someone has fed Gizmo after midnight to release the critters, although there’s no actual reference to the movie as any resemblance is purely co-incidental. Honest.

Anyway, moving on from this, we have a classic 3-reel, 3-payline pokie that has a couple of extra features to make it a little more engaging than many similar games, with a wild symbol and a jackpot of 6000x the line stake. Plus a bet range that should satisfy most players.

The action plays out in a dark cave setting, where the goblins are protecting their hoard of gold from intruders, but any players spinning the right combinations will be able to get their hands on some decent payouts.

It’s laid out in much the same way as any other Microgaming pokie, with the reels and a game logo to one side, a payout table to the other and control buttons beneath it all. In this case, the logo is simply one of the goblins clambering over the game title, with a little image next to it that informs players that the goblin head symbol is wild, substituting for all others if it will complete a winning line.

The payout table has all the information about what combinations of symbols will be worth when landing across an active payline, while the control panel, which is the standard one used across much of the Microgaming range, lets players set their bet size.

Spinning the reels can cost as little as 0.25, although this will only activate 1 of the 3 lines meaning that two-thirds of the winning combinations won’t count, so it’s perhaps best to have a stake on them all, especially as this is the only way to get the jackpot payout.

However many lines are played, the amount staked on each can be increased from 0.25 to 0.50, 1.00, 2.00, 5.00, 10.00, 20.00 and finally 25.00, giving us a maximum wager of 75.00 per spin with all lines.

Looking at the payout table, players can see how many times the line bet will be won when examples of the same symbol land across the reels. The basic bar icons that have been used in countless pokies make up the majority of them, although they have been subtly re-designed to look like the signage found in gold mines.

If any combination of the bar symbols fills a line, players win 5x the amount staked per line, while the single bar pays them 25x. Double bars are worth 50x and triples are valued at 100x.

Next up there are a couple of high-paying symbols related directly to the theme, with a line of mine lamps paying out 300x and a bag of gold nuggets being worth 500x.

Landing the goblin symbol is rewarding in a couple of ways. If there’s 1 or 2 of any other symbol across a line, and 1 or 2 of the goblin symbols, it will still count for a win, while the jackpot payouts come when whole lines are made up of it.

If the first payline that runs through the centre of the reels is made up of goblins, then players will win a prize equal to 1000x the amount placed on a line, while the second payline carries a value of 3000x. The game jackpot comes from getting the goblin across the third line which is the one running along the bottom of the reels. Get this combination for a win equal to 6000x the line bet, but players need to bear in mind that they will only qualify for it if they have activated all 3 lines.

A Golden Opportunity for Wins?

Goblins Gold has a little more in the way of extra features than many 3 reel pokies, notably the wild symbol that should boost the frequency of winning spins, and of course that big jackpot prize. Despite this, it’s still a relatively basic game, with no bonus rounds, but anyone searching for a reliable pokie that can be trusted to deliver on its promised wins should certainly have a go at this one.

If there’s a downside, it’s that most of the symbols that are going to appear will be the single, double and triple bars, with the others being quite high-paying in relation, so less likely to land in the right places. Also, the goblins are a bit weird-looking, but don’t let that put you off what is overall a good all-round pokie.
