This visually stunning game is played on a standard 5×3 board with 30 compulsory paylines, and the reels are really colorful as they contain all those interesting characters and symbols, in recognizable Betsoft style. I have played this slot machine a lot because it has great graphics and plenty of bonus rounds, so let me give you my detailed opinion on it.
The game gives you for bonus features: Cascading Coin Drops, Sticky Wild Reels, Elvish Free Spins and the Greedy Jackpot. The Jackpot can be won only when you land five Elf symbols on a winning payline with a maximum bet, which in this slot game is $150. Minimum bet is $0.30. Often times, games such as this one, that have tons of bonus features, end up having a low theoretical return to player (RTP). Not this title, as the RTP is excellent, 97.20%. This makes Greedy Goblins one of the best titles to play, as you get excellent payout and lots of bonus features, all wrapped in a package with great graphics and theme.
Main game and paytable
There are eight symbols in the paytable, and none of them can get you your stake back for a three-of-a-kind win, most won’t do that not even for four-of-a-kind, but the paytable gets quite generous in case of top two symbols for five-of-a-kind, as you’ll win 417x and 40x your bet per spin respectively. The paytable can be called skinny, except for those two symbols, and it’s the bonus features that bring all the big wins in this game.
Coins are the Scatter symbols, and whenever two or more appear on your reels, the goblins will collect them and the Coins will first pay the cash prize and will then be replaced by new symbols, which allows for new winning combinations to be formed.
There are several bonus features in the Greedy Goblins slot machine, which is the reason why you should still play it today even if it’s not the latest release. The sheer number of features in this game is rarely seen in slots.
Sticky Wild Reels is a feature that’s triggered whenever you land a Sticky Wild symbol. A random number between one and three re-spins will be awarded, and the entire reel will become Wild during all those re-spins. If you land another Sticky Wild symbol on some other reel during the re-spins, that reel will become Wild but you won’t get additional re-spins. This feature can be very rewarding, and is only the beginning of bonus features in this game.
Elfania Scatters trigger the free spins game, and you need three or more of them. You’ll get 10, 15 or 25 free spins for three, four or five Scatters respectively. The free spins game will give a multiplier to certain symbols, and this multiplier can go up to x10. The multiplier makes the free spins game valuable, and it must be noted that the Sticky Wild Reels feature is active during the free spins game as well.
Book of Secrets Scatter appears on reels 2 and 4 only. When you land both of them, you’ll enter the bonus game in which you’ll get to pick your prize. This is a nice addition to the game and to your bankroll, and it’s fun to watch the animations, too.
Greedy Goblins is an excellent slot game to play, as it has high theoretical payout and a lot of bonus features that will be rewarding you with big wins. The paytable itself is quite skinny so this is the kind of game in which bonus features will be bringing all the cash. Variance seems to be medium, and the game is easy to play, yet there’s potential of winning big.
