A Golden Goose is probably more suited to a panto or fairy tale than the dinner plate. Getting your hands on one is still very desirable though. It’s the theme for another hit game from Microgaming and it certainly has plenty to offer.
Genie Gems has proved to be a big hit. It first came out back in 1999 and this sequel has more lines, more bonus games and higher jackpots for you to win.
This is a five-reel game that has a total of 20 paylines for you to try and win cash on. The cost of playing the game goes from £0.01 to £200. It’s up to you entirely to work out your financial budget. There’s also the Golden Goose bonus to consider where a side bet has to be made and this can take the maximum bet up to £250. You might already have your own golden goose if you can spend that on a single spin of the reels. There’s no progressive jackpot in this game but as you’ll read there are plenty of bonus games.
Symbols include gemstones, jewel encrusted cutlasses, the almost compulsory flying carpet, gold oil lamps, some towers and filling up the reels, the high value playing cards. At least they have a gold and purple trim.
The wild symbol in this game is the genie, he may not grant you three wishes but he can substitute for other symbols to magic you some winning combinations. The scatter symbol is the magic ball and this is really magical when it comes to triggering the bonus games, hence the fact the wild can’t substitute for this symbol. Even better news for the wild is the fact that it triples any win that it is part of so that can really help your cash balance grow.
If that side bet is placed then at the end of each spin of the reels, one of four bonus features can be won. You don’t need to have just had a winning combination either. The four bonus games include the Money or the Egg game where there’s the tantalising choice between receiving an instant prize or getting the chance of 50 free spins with a 3x multiplier.
Other bonus rounds include choosing a card to win some free spins and the golden goose giving you a multiplier that can be between 1x and 6x. Whether it makes omelettes hasn’t been confirmed.
The good thing about this game is that you don’t have to be playing a maximum bet in order to get into the bonus rounds. A small bet with one coin per line and the side bet gives you a great chance of winning some great prizes.
It’s definitely worth having an Arabian adventure. The idea of the side bet is a good one and the bonus rounds definitely give you a good chance of making some good profits. You definitely need to have a look at the paytable and rules because this isn’t the most straightforward of games. Get some free plays too before risking your real cash.
