The Goonies Return Slot Review – Blueprint Gaming
It has been a couple of weeks since my last Blueprint Gaming slot review, the last was for the game titled ‘Rick And Morty‘. Which has a max win capped at 10,000x and a big range of exciting features. Today we are learning all about ‘The Goonies Return‘, which is available to play now!
The original Goonies slot was released on 25th November 2018 and is still a very popular pick within the casino community. The visual style is similar to the previous game, with more detail and a new modern take. Symbols are represented by characters from the movie and the standard 9 – A low paying symbols. The background artwork is filled with different treasures such as coins and gems.
The Goonies Return has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 20 set pay lines. This slot is medium variance with a set RTP of 96% and a max win capped at 50,000x. You can bet from £0.10 – £100.
The Goonies Return Pay Table & Symbols
There are 11 symbols in total, this includes 4 low-paying symbols. These are represented by J, Q, K, and A. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by 4 different characters and a skull flag. In addition to these regular symbols is a skeleton bonus scatter and a wild symbol. The highest paying symbol is the skull flag premium, which pays 50x for 5 across a pay line. Wilds substitute for all symbols except the bonus scatter.
The Goonies Return Features
At random during base game spins the ‘One-eyes willy key of plenty‘ mini-feature will trigger. Awarding 1 of 7 different modifiers. These modifiers are;
Truffle Shuffle – Wilds are added to random positions on the reel set. Some can be wild multipliers.
W-Invention Reels – Up to 5 reels will be in sync, displaying the same symbols. Or a colossal symbol on up to 5 reels with an upgrade to the symbols in view.
Hidden Treasure – A Mikey Wild is added to the middle reel and other character symbols that land on the spin can also be changed into a wild.

There are also 6 features that can trigger any losing spin in the base game. These are;

Cave Collapse – The cave collapses removing all symbols and a cascade occurs.
Landing 3 or more bonus scatters during a base game spin will trigger the ‘One-eyed willy Bonus‘. A wheel will be spun to reveal which of the 6 bonuses will be awarded. If you risk gambling this feature, there is a chance of being awarded a better feature. Or instead being awarded a mystery win and returning to the base game without a bonus feature. The 6 possible bonuses are;
Booby Trap Bonus– Turn the key left or right to reveal prizes. This can award cash prizes, a different bonus feature, and eventually collect.
Waterslide To Wealth – Pick from the golden coins to advance on the trail. The higher up on the trail the higher the cash prizes. The trial will continue until collection is revealed. If you get to the end of the trial the ‘Big money bonus round’ is awarded.
Skeleton Organ Free Spins (5 Free Spins) – Skeleton Organ Symbols are sticky for the duration of this feature. When these symbols land and the spin ends pick from one of the bones to reveal a symbol. All skeleton symbols on the reel set will be replaced with that symbol. When spins end picks from the 3 keys to reveal to be awarded either additional spins or collect.
Fratelli Free Spins (10 Free Spins) – When a Super Sloth wild lands during spins it will highlight the position it is in. On the last free spin either cash or wild symbols land in the highlighted positions. If 5 or more cash symbols hit, the Momma Fratelli Money spins are awarded. With 3 respins awarded which reset when a cash symbol lands. Respins end when 3 spins occur with no cash symbols landing.
The Final Voyage Free Spins – An inferno wild will move across the reel set each spin. When the ship reaches the symbols below the reel set for that symbol to change into a wild. Reaching the Final Voyage will display coins to choose from, which can award some Final Voyage Super Spins or a collect.
One-eyed Willy Riches – This is a hold and respin feature with 3 respins awarded. When a symbol or multiplier lands the respins are reset to 3. Symbols can land awarding an overall win multiplier, collecting all values in view, increasing the value of random symbols, award extra spins, and increasing the size of the reels.
Overall, I think this slot is a fantastic game sequel by the provider and is jam-packed with different mechanics/features. With a max win capped at 50,000x and a lot of mini-features plus different Free Spins features. Be sure to try out the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
