Goblin Heist Powernudge Review
In most fairytales, the goblins are always the villains and never get to tell their side of the story. Thankfully, Goblin Heist Powernudge is all about these goblins trying to pull off the perfect heist to reclaim the treasures of the kingdom.
Developed by Pragmatic Play, Goblin Heist Powernudge plays on 5-reels with 10 paylines and features a respin mechanic, multipliers and the unique Powernudge feature - what more could you want in an online slot?
The background of the slot is a visually stunning kingdom with waterfalls, beautiful trees and a shining castle. At the front of the reels is the goblin looking grotesque but planning to take everything he can from the kingdom.
On the reels, there are various tools used in the heist such as special goblin bombs, horns, skull keys, maps and the chests containing all the loot.
To match the visuals, there is a whimsical musical score playing with bells and a steady beat. It sounds like the music you'd expect to find in a fantasy movie and it fits in really well.
Throughout the base game, there isn't anything overly special going on - but this changes once the Powernudge feature has triggered. This makes the game feel like an old slot machine with nudging mechanics and is welcomed in the slot.
At the bottom of the screen, there is a spin button followed by the trademark Pragmatic Play crown above it. To either side of the spin button, there is a bet level and then additional settings in case they are needed.
Sadly, this slot falls into the Pragmatic Play category of having a mediocre win potential with the maximum win only being 4,000x your stake. This would be decent if the slot was a low volatility slot, but it's a high volatility slot.
Ultimately, this means that players receive larger wins, but less frequently. Many players will be disappointed in only having the potential to win 4,000x your stake. Thankfully, the RTP is decent at 96.47% putting it above the average standard of 96%.
Goblin Heist Powernudge is an interesting slot that tells a story that often isn't told in online slots or in pop culture. The overall design is brilliant in creating this vibrant world - but sadly the win potential just brings down the excitement.
Despite 4,000x your stake not being up to higher standards found in online slots, it's nothing too low to completely put you off. Besides, the Powernudge feature is completely original and makes the slot worth checking out for that alone.
