Blueprint Gaming, a UK-based casino software developer and multi-platform gaming content supplier, has released The Goonies Hey You Guys!, the sequel to the two previous hits in the series, The Goonies and The Goonies Return. This latest iteration follows Mikey, Mouth and Data, from the 1985 classic film “The Goonies,” as they try and save their homes from foreclosure. On their mission, the group of kids from Astoria, Oregon, stumble upon an old treasure map that takes them on an epic adventure to find the long-lost fortune of legendary 17th-century pirate One-Eyed Willy. However, they are not alone in their quest, in addition to them, the notorious Fratelli crime family is also looking for the treasure.
The main theme of the slot is the aforementioned trio of friends, Michael “Mike” Walsh, Richard “Data” Wang and Clark “Mouth” Deveraux. Additionally, players may enjoy this game on any device.
To win, players must form a combination of at least 3 matching symbols on a payline running from left to right, where each win must begin on the first reel to the left on a dynamic 5×3 grid.
As for the symbols, there are basic low-value ones such as J, K, A and Q, while the high-value bonus symbols are the aforementioned friends Mouth, Data and Mike plus their pirate flag that says “Never say die!” A combination of 5 low-value bonus symbols is worth 5x to 7.5x, increasing to 10x and 100x a player’s bet for a combination of 5 high-value bonus symbols.
This entry into the series has medium volatility, a default RTP of 95% and a maximum win of 50,000x a player’s bet.
Wild Symbol – the Wild helps to enable more winning combinations by replacing regular symbols other than the Scatter and Cash Symbols.
Cash Collect – these symbols may land on reels 1-4. Each of the cash symbols has a cash value and players can’t create regular winning combinations with them. Additionally, the sloth symbol, aka the deformed, abused and kind-hearted man from the aforementioned movie, only lands on the fifth reel, meaning that each time it lands simultaneously as at least 1 cash collect symbol, this feature is activated. Upon activation, each value of the already present Cash Symbols is rewarded to players and the Respin sloth symbol is triggered.
As soon as the Respin sloth symbol accumulates Cash symbols, the Boost symbol is triggered, following the activation of Super Collect Sloth symbol as soon as this one accumulates cash symbols. As soon as all 4 sloth symbols are triggered, they are available both during the base game and during the free spins.
- Respin Sloth – accumulates every cash symbol in sight and then locks in place until reels 1-4 are re-spinned for one more opportunity to accumulate cash symbols;
- Boost Sloth – accumulates each cash symbol in sight and rewards a cash increase up to the last accumulated amount;
- Super Collect – accumulates the value of every cash symbol in sight up to 10 times.
Moreover, the cash symbols mentioned above show jackpots or cash values. Jackpots are Mini, Minor, Major and Mega worth 10x, 25x, 100x and 2,000x a player’s bet, individually.
Sloth Collect Modifiers – throughout any spin, there’s a possibility that the sloth symbol may land and activate 1 of the 4 reel modifiers, which adds an additional layer of fun and possible awards. Additionally, the mentioned modifiers are Bonus Boost, Hidden Treasure, Dynamite Wilds and Cave In.
Free Spins – activating the bonus mode awards players with 10 free spins. Throughout the feature, each unlocked scatter will stay active. However, as soon as the sloth symbol appears on the reels throughout the feature, they will be generated on the meter and players will get rewards for every Coin Cash symbol displayed on the screen. Additionally, there are multipliers that apply to the cash symbols that the aforementioned sloth symbols accumulate.
