Goat Getter Slot Review 2024

Scale to the summit with Push Gaming’s latest game, Goat Getter. Goat Getter and its alpine theme take players to a rather scenic landscape in a journey where the steepest mountains hold the biggest wins.

It almost goes against logic that Goats are good at scaling steep mountains, you wouldn’t exactly attribute the trait of being nimble to a goat, but as it turns out they’re quite the mountaineers. Specialised hooves, agility, balance and fearlessness make goats fit for the job, but will the goats from Goat Getter have the necessary equipment to carry players to new heights?

An original slot about Goats wasn’t on our bingo card, especially from the same studio that brought us the ferocious Razor Returns, but here we are, and up we go to the mountain in their latest offering to the world.

Push Bet

Before you can begin spinning, you will have the option to activate the Push Bet feature. Choosing to activate this feature will increase your current bet by 20%. Once active, your chances of triggering the Free Spins round are increased. (RTP 96.18% – 96.44%)

Coin Drop Feature

During the base game, special Bronze, Silver, and Gold Coin Pots can land at random with instant Prizes between 0.5x and 1,000x attached to them. When 6 or more Coin Pots land in view with no further wins, the Coin Drop Feature will trigger.

  • 6 Coin Pots – Award 0.5x your bet.
  • 7 Coin Pots – Award 1x your bet.
  • 8 Coin Pots – Award 2x your bet.
  • 9 Coin Pots – Award 4x your bet.

When 10 or more Coin Pots land in view, the Instant Prizes attached to them become active and each Coin Pots value is awarded. At the start of the Coin Drop feature, all High and Low-paying symbols are removed from play (except Coin Pots and Scatters).

Once active, Mystery Boxes will drop in from above, revealing Dud, Coin Pot, or Scatter symbols. When 3 or more Scatter symbols are revealed, the Free Spins round will automatically trigger once all wins are paid out.

During Free Spins, Mystery Boxes can reveal Dud, Coin Pot, and Goat symbols. When Coin Pot and Goat symbols are revealed, the Instant Prize values attached to them will become active, and the Goat symbol will collect them.

The Multiplier attached to the Goat symbol will then be applied to the collected values and paid out. Once all wins are paid, the Goat symbol will be stored on a special Progression Meter. More than 1 Goat symbol in view will collect all Coin Pot values multiple times.

Goat Getter Free Spins

Landing 3 or more Scatter symbols across the grid during the base game will trigger the Free Spins round. Depending on how many Scatters trigger the Free Spins round, you can be awarded one of the following number of Free Spins.

  • 3 Scatters – Awards 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, or 12 Free Spins.
  • 4 Scatters – Awards 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, or 16 Free Spins.
  • 5 Scatters – Awards 14, 15, or 16 Free Spins.

Once the Free Spins round is triggered, and your number of Free Spins has been awarded, a special Gamble Feature will trigger. A Gamble Wheel will appear with possible Free Spins prize segments that are a better offering than you’ve been awarded, and a number of blank segments.

You can choose to gamble your current Free Spins for a chance to win one of the Free Spins Prizes on the Gamble Wheel. If you do not wish to gamble, a Collect button is available which will take you straight into the Free Spins round with your current amount of Free Spins.

If your gamble is successful, you will be awarded a new number of Free Spins, but an unsuccessful gamble will return you to the base game empty-handed. If the gamble wheel lands on 14 Free Spins or more, the Free Spins feature will automatically begin.

During Free Spins, a special Goat symbol (as mentioned previously) may land. The Goat symbol is a special Coin Pot Collector. When 1 or more Coin Pot symbol lands in view with 1 or more Goat symbols, all present Goat symbols will collect the Instant Prize values from the Coin Pot symbols.

For each goat symbol that lands, an increment will be added to a special Progression Meter. The progression meter is made up of 4 individual levels, and each level can be reached when you collect 5 Goat symbols.

When a new level is reached, additional Free Spins and a Goat symbol Multiplier are awarded. Goat Multipliers will multiply all Coin Pot values that are collected.

  • Level 1 – Awards +5 Free Spins and a x2 Goat Multiplier.
  • Level 2 – Awards +5 Free Spins and a x3 Goat Multiplier.
  • Level 3 – Awards +5 Free Spins and a x5 Goat Multiplier.
  • Level 4 – Awards +5 Free Spins and a x10 Goat Multiplier.

Goat Getter: Our Verdict

Goat Getter isn’t quite as crazy as others in the Push Gaming catalogue, but it doesn’t need to be. The objective isn’t to go bigger and better every time, and Goat Getter is a testament to their diverse talents.

Goat Getter is a solid Scatter Pays slot, and coupling it with a collection mechanic makes it entertaining and potentially rewarding with high-value pots up for grabs. It certainly doesn’t feel like a game that seems tedious until Free Spins hits, but you’re still sitting in anticipation for it. When Free Spins does arrive, you can justify a shift to the edge of your seat as you climb through the levels to higher multipliers, if you can get there.

We’ll admit, the pacing of the bonus in the early stages can be a bit of a drag. It can be quite a long bonus as long as the Goats keep coming, and a constant tempo is required to get to those more exciting levels. We tested it a few times, and we’ll admit that during one of those sessions, we went to make a coffee and returned before we’d even ascended to the next level. At other times, it came relatively quickly, or not at all when we were particularly unlucky.

The potential of Goat Getter is solid with up to 10,000x as a maximum win. This feels like the new standard nowadays, but it’s still pretty appealing.

Overall, Goat Getter is a spirited and attractive instalment, but it’s not an all-time favourite.
