Free Greedy Goblins Slots
Greedy Goblins is one of the 3D cinematic slots in the BetSoft range. The quirky theme involves a group of bright green goblins, who are trying to steal coins and ideas from some elves. To the left of the reel stands a 3D goblin that ‘hosts’ your games, reacting to spins and occasionally finding his pipe or just dancing around.
There is certainly more to this slot than just the amazing graphics. You will find 2 on-reel features in the form of respins with a wild reel, and a cascading coin-drop feature. There are also two distinct bonus games. One of these is a free spins round which involves multipliers of up to 10x. With the top win from regular play 12,500 coins, a 10x can make a huge difference. The other is a break out bonus where you’ll help the goblins to steal ideas from the elves.
How to Win on Greedy Goblins
You will get plenty of smaller wins from regular play in this game, which has a 30 win-line setup. That huge win comes from lining up 5 of the elves. If you get max (like on all BetSoft slots there is a button for this), then 5 of these will get you the progressive jackpot. Without max coins these will win 12,500 coins for 5, 240 coins for 4 and 30 coins for just 3.
Next in the payouts comes the main goblin, which looks cheeky and has a very long nose. This is worth 1200 coins for 5, 90 for 4 and 20 for just 3. The mushroom house and crown are next at 240 coins for 5, with a silver trophy, diamond, full moon and wanted poster (which features the goblin) making up the smaller wins.
There are two on-reel features, coin drops and wild respins. If you get 2 or more of the gold coins, then some goblins run in front of the reels and steel them away – literally removing the symbols from the reels. What then happens is symbols above these fall down to fill the gaps, with new symbols appearing at the top of the game. There are prizes too, depending on the total number of coins appearing on the reels. This is 750 coins for 5, 360 for 4, 180 for 3 and 60 for 2.
A tree house symbol is wild. This will substitute for any of the regular symbols (though not the jackpot), and will expand to cover all 3 spots on the reels. You then get between 1 and 3 respins at random with this sticky wild in place. If you hit a second one, then you can expand this to 6 free spins max. This feature can occur during free spins, in which case you will also benefit from the multipliers.
Free Spins and Break Out Bonus on Greedy Goblins
The ‘Welcome to Elfania’ sign triggers free spins, and also comes with a cash prize depending on how many you get anywhere on the reels. 3 are worth 60 coins and 10 free spins. 4 get you 300 coins and 15 free spins and 5 get you 1500 coins and 25 free spins.
You then see a sequence in which your host goblin hides, and two elves come along – eventually replacing the goblin to ‘host’ the free spins game. The big difference is that many symbols have multipliers written on them – anything from x2 to x10. If you make a win, it is multiplied by this amount.
The break out bonus is triggered by hitting 2 of the ‘book of secrets’ symbols. Here you get a sequence where the goblins sneak into the elf house (a mushroom). The elves then disappear and you get to pick items (ideas) to steal. You can scroll left and right and all the items to take are highlighted.
One more bonus to mention is the double after win feature. This is essentially a coin flip game. Instead of heads or tails, you pick goblins or elf sides. An elf avatar will flip the coin and react to the result.
Design and Setup of Greedy Goblins
Like many of the recent BetSoft slots, Greedy Goblins looks amazing. The 3D graphics and avatars which react to your play make this slot stand out from those from other slot software houses. Wins come with animations which are excellent too, for example the goblins under the full moon and growing tree house for the sticky wild respins game. Music for this one is like layered children’s tunes, which gives a surreal and somewhat crazy feeling to the whole game. There are other sound effects, including the goblin ‘talking’.
Underneath all the excellent graphics is a 30 line 5 reel slot. You can choose the number of lines (keep all 30 if you can, as this maximizes benefits from the sticky wilds). You can also choose your coin size and the number of coins per line. Auto-play is offered as standard.
I’d recommend this to any slot fan – Greedy Goblins is not only a great introduction to what BetSoft is capable of producing, it is an engaging and entertaining slot. Add in the chance of those big wins (jackpot, 12,500 coins from regular play and up to 10x multipliers during one of the bonus games) and you have a slot which ticks all the right boxes.
