Gameplay

The cinematic spectacle of the Goonies film has been transformed to fun imagery and exciting features on the reels. The Goonies slot game has 12 game features, 6 of which are bonus features and many different icons. Several elements from the film, like the main characters, the treasure map and the booby-trapped tunnel to name just a few, make their appearance on the reels.

The five highest paying symbols are the icons of the golden scales, the skeleton, the pirate ship, the treasure chest and the pirate flag. The symbol of the ancient coin functions as the Wild symbol. The pirate flag and the wild symbol have the same value and are the highest paying icons. If you play either 5 wild symbols or 5 pirate flags on the reels in one round you win x25 your stake. In the main game you can collect a maximum win of x500 your bet.
