Goat Rush Features
Adding goats to a video slot was always going to create a few talking points and given that they are the main element in this game, we will be talking about them quite a lot.
One of the things that we love about this slot is that pretty much everything you can do in the free spins game can also be achieved during the base game as well.
Landing the free spins bonus is a nice surprise but you don't spend the whole time waiting for it to trigger. That's a huge thumbs up from us.
Landing a respin is pretty simple. All you need to do is watch a win roll in. This can be achieved by hitting a minimum combo of three of the lower-paying card suits or the harder-hitting character symbols.
If a win lands during the respin, then you'll get another one. And this can continue indefinitely. There is an added element to this feature that gives it a whole lot more winning potential and this is down to the wild symbols and multipliers.
Wilds & Multipliers
The wild symbols are the goats. These friendly cloven-hoofed characters are on your side and will do their best to connect as many winning combos as possible. They don't land on the reels in a traditional way though.
Instead, what you have is a wild train running across the top of the reels with each spin. If a win lands with a goat in one of the carts of the train directly above any of the winning symbols, then the goat jumps out of the train and lands on the board. It is now a wild and will step to the left with every respin.
Hold on, there's more! Each of these savvy ungulates has seemingly made off with a gold nugget on their way out of the mine. And as they walk off the edge of the reels, they lob their piece of gold into the multiplier box and increase the total by +1. The winning figure at the end of the respin feature will then benefit from the multiplier.
At any point, the screen may begin to rumble and rocks are about to fall. This can only mean one thing—you’ve triggered the mystery feature. 2 things can occur at this point.
The first is that a mystery pattern will appear on the reels. This will be 6 random places that now convert into 5 identical symbols plus one wild symbol. This can happen during the base game or the free spins bonus.
Alternatively, mystery wilds may appear on the reels. A maximum of 3 could be yours during the free spins game.
Free spins come courtesy of landing 3 scatter symbols. Players in other countries outside the UK may also use the buy-in feature, and the price is set at 65x the stake.
Everybody gets 10 free spins with a further 5 available during the bonus. These are made up of an additional 1 free spin per bonus symbol that lands.
