Golden Goddess is a classic five-reel online slot from IGT that can be played in both land-based and online casinos. The online version was released in 2013, so while it isn't the most modern of games, it still has what it takes to entertain players.
As the title suggests, the action focuses on a female character known as the Golden Goddess, and it has a mythological feel that makes it a great game to play when you want to forget about the more mundane nature of the real world.
Get lucky and you could win a top prize of 1,000 times your bet.

About Golden Goddess
The Golden Goddess game takes place at the top of a mountain. The scene is idyllic rather than natural, and we have an inkling that we're actually at the top of Mount Olympus, which is the home of various Greek gods and goddesses.
In that case, the Golden Goddess - who has a passing resemblance to the legendary Marilyn Monroe - could well be Aphrodite.
Despite the fact that this game is more than 10 years old, the visuals still hold up very well. That's probably thanks to the background having a soft-focus cartoon style, but the symbols are pretty sharp and look perfectly good on all devices.
A soundtrack with a cinematic quality can be heard when the reels are spinning, but this fades to silence shortly after they have come to rest.
We would prefer the music to be constant, but we should also bear in mind that this slot was created back when developers had to be careful about the amount of data and internet bandwidth their games needed.
Golden Goddess Symbols
Lower-value symbols in this game are colourful and ornately decorated versions of the playing card values 10, J, Q, K, and A.
The higher-value symbols are a white dove, Pegasus the flying horse, a male suitor (possibly Hermes?), and the Golden Goddess herself.
A Golden Goddess game logo serves as a paying wild, and this is the most valuable symbol of all, paying 1,000 times your bet for a line of five.
A red rose symbol, which only appears on the middle three reels, serves as a scatter.
How to Play Golden Goddess
All slots are easy to play, but a classic like Golden Goddess is particularly so. You must play all 40 pay lines in this game, so all you need to decide is how much you want to bet per line.
To do that, click the arrows to either side of the Line Bet window and choose a stake from 0.01 to 5.00 per line. A Total Bet window to the right will show you how much that equates to per spin.
When you've set your stake, press the golden spin button below the middle reel to set the game in motion. The reels will then be assessed when they have stopped spinning and any prizes won will be paid automatically.
Most symbols pay for getting three or more matching on adjacent reels from left to right, but the male character, Golden Goddess and logo symbols pay for two or more.
Super Stacks Feature
The reels in this game contain stacked symbols, and in the main game, one symbol is selected at random before each spin to be the one that is stacked.
You won't actually notice that this is happening, or know which symbol has been selected until you happen to land a stack.
We like this feature because it makes it easier for players to land wins, which is probably why this game has a low to medium level of volatility.
Free Spins Feature
Another symbol that can appear stacked is the red rose scatter, and when you get this stacked on the second, third, and fourth reels at the same time you will trigger a Free Spins feature.
This will give you seven free spins, but before they begin you will be asked to select one of the red roses to reveal a symbol. The symbol could be the dove, Pegasus, the male character, or the Golden Goddess.
Whichever symbol is revealed will be stacked on the reels for the duration of the Free Spins bonus game.
Golden Goddess RTP
Golden Goddess has an RTP of 94.75%.
Pros and Cons
Golden Goddess Slot: Our Verdict
Golden Goddess didn't become a classic IGT slot by accident, but only because it's a great game that can keep players entertained for hours.
We love how the visuals have managed to stand the test of time, and our only quibble about the audio is that the soundtrack fades out between spins.
As far as the game itself is concerned, Golden Goddess is both elegant and exciting, and while the top prize of 1,000 times your bet isn't massive by today's standards, it's still a sum that's well worth celebrating if you manage to win it.
Play the Golden Goddess slot today and we think you'll love it as much as we do.
