Golden Gods Slot Review 2021
Relax Gaming partner, Max Win Gaming has gifted us the power of the Gods in their latest release, Golden Gods!
Max Win Gaming has got quite the growing portfolio, with slot titles like Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways and Amazon Island Megaways being just a couple in the collection. This time, Max Win Gaming are taking us on a journey to a sacred Temple where many believers gather to seek the blessings of the Golden Gods.
Golden Gods has its own unique Respin feature and a Collector Free Spins round all up for grabs, if this isn’t enough to draw you in, then we think the godly 60,000x max win capacity should do it.
Will we be blessed by the Gods or are we going to be left in a state of disbelief? Let’s find out!
Golden Gods Theme
Golden Gods has an interesting theme if you’re not numb to the somewhat oveused ‘ruins in the jungle’ aesthetic.
Graphically, Golden Gods is pretty great, but it’s not really something that’ll wow you considering you’ve seen it many times before. The temple ruins aren’t alone as an overconcentrated design though, with Wild West and Buffalo themes as even worse offenders.
Overall, Golden Gods looks great, and it sounds great, but nobody is going to spend much time dwelling on something that they’ve witnessed again and again.
Golden Gods Betting and Symbols
There is a variety of betting options available for players in Golden Gods. For those who prefer a lower stake, the minimum bet available here is £/€0.10 per spin. For those who prefer a higher stake, the maximum bet available is £/€12.50 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two.
Golden Gods does symbol hierarchy a little differently to your conventional slot, with four symbols of identical value in place of progressively better symbols. After all, these Golden Gods are equal in stature, so it makes sense that they’re worth the same.
Lower paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten and Nine.
Golden Gods Base Game and Features
Golden Gods is a 5 reel slot with 3,125 Ways to win. In order to form a win you will need to connect 3 or more of the same symbols from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
Max Win Gaming has opted for no Wilds in Golden Gods, Instead making Scatters the key symbol to look out for. The base game in Golden Gods has been blessed with a Respin Feature, this feature transforms an otherwise simple base game into something more exciting!
During any random spin in the base game, if a winning combination of high paying Major symbols land along with 1 or 2 Scatter symbols, the Respin feature is automatically triggered.
The Respin feature will continue to deliver respins until a Dead Spin occurs.
Golden Gods Free Spins
Landing 3 or more Scatters in any position on the reels, triggers the Bonus round, awarding 6 Free Spins.
All Scatter symbols that triggered the initial Free Spins will become sticky, with their own Cash value attached to them.
During Free Spins, any additional Cash or Feature symbols that land also become sticky, remaining in their position for the remainder of Free Spins.
- Regular Symbols – Has a value between 2x and 8x.
- Gold Symbols – Has a value between 10x and 200x.
- Itzamna – Mirrors the value of another random symbol and adds it to all symbols.
- Ix Chel – Cash Prizes: Merges 2 – 4 cash prizes into one position by summing their values and then multiplying the total amount by its own multiplier
- Kinich Ahau – Adds together all symbol values and collects them.
- Chaac – Chooses up to 3 Cash Prizes and doubles their value up to 3 times each.
Each time a Gold symbol lands in view, an additional +2 Free Spins are awarded. All Feature symbols that land in view, also award an additional +3 Free Spins.
Golden Gods Bonus Buy
For those outside the UK, you may be blessed with a Bonus Buy option.
This can be purchased for 150x your current bet.
Golden Gods Our Verdict
Maz Win Gaming may not have done a terrific job on making an imaginative theme, but they’ve done a great job at making a good game.
Granted some of the inspiration here has obviously been drawn from slots that did a similar thing before it, but Max Win Gaming has put their own spin on it with feature symbols that have their own personality.
Overall, it’s all very ‘money train’ in a sense, but with potential that is even greater than Money Train’s! The maximum win on Golden Gods is stated to be 60,000x, but is it realistically capable?
That remains to be seen. Money Train 2 has certainly hit its cap on many an occasion, but we’re skeptical about Golden Gods and its ability to exceed it by 10,000x.
Overall. Golden Gods will scratch that itch if you’re looking for something akin to Money Train, but we’d put good money on keep slot players to side with Money Train even with its lower win potential.
