The Goonies Slot by Blueprint – Review & Play
One of the great childhood films of all time and a major nostalgia-fest for people of a certain age, The Goonies has got a slot makeover from Blueprint that has now continued into a series.
This is the first of that series and does what a lot of Blueprint titles do, which is offer big character development and gameplay depth with a load of features.
In this title that means a feature for each of the young characters who were at the centre of Spielberg’s massive hit film, six bonus features in all.
As this is a treasure hunting theme, it works well with slots, and there’s a seventh feature arranged around the big prize from the map in the film.
The Goonies had a crazy adventure, but do you want to join them?
Let’s have a look.

Is there anything else I should know about The Goonies slot?
The intro sequence is great. Leave it on.
There is a lot going on in this game, but the controls aren’t complex and will be easy to get your head around if you’ve played any online video slots before.
The pay table opens on cards, paying up to 5-times for a set of 5.
The scales pay 10-times stake for a set of 5, as does the skeleton.
The pirate ship and the treasure chest both pay 15-times stake for a set of 5.
The wild pays 25-times stake for a full-house of 5.
The bonuses come thick and fast!
The One-Eyed Willy Bonus Boost puts extra scatters on the reels.
Mouth’s Lucky Coins turn coin symbols into a set of matching symbols.
Chunk’s Truffle Shuffle puts wilds randomly on the reels.
Data’s Colossal Symbols turns 3 of the reels into massive reels.
Mikey’s Hidden Treasure turns reels wild.
Sloth’s Win Spin guarantees a big prize spin.
There are two lose-to-win features too.
The main bonuses are triggered with One-Eyed Willy’s Bonus or with 3 scatters. These open a wheel of fortune to trigger one of:
- One-Eyed Willy’s Treasure, a multiplier.
- Fratelli’s Hideout Bonus, a prize pick game.
- Skeleton Organ Bonus, a multipliers feature.
Free spins come via scatters, and they are also awarded via a wheel spin in one of these varieties:
- Super Sloth Free Spins with extra-high-value symbols.
- Goonies Go Wild Free Spins with extra wilds.
- Inferno Free Spins with a moving inferno adding extra wilds.
The top potential prize is 10,000-times your stake, with a top prize stake of £250,000.
Wow. This game is amazing. And amazingly complex.
So that means it might not be for you.
If you want a nice familiar set of symbols, with a couple of wilds, and a free spins round then this is not the game for you.
If you want an all-singing, all-dancing take on an adventure film then this might be for you. It’s not complicated to play in any way. These games never are: it would be mad to make a game that is hard to play.
But it means there is depth and breadth to the game play. We do recommend that you read the instructions for this game, just so you know what’s going on. It’s also not a game to really sit down and bang through the spins on, as there are a lot of little sequences and a lot of choices for players to take part in.
With a good bit of luck, you could have both a very enjoyable gaming experience and a rewarding one too. The Goonies are long in the tooth now, so this could be a nice frisson of nostalgia for some players, but it might well introduce this great movie to a new generation too.
