Push Gaming, a B2B gaming supplier based in London, UK, has launched Goat Getter, a goat-themed slot featuring a goat, which, besides its outstanding climbing ability is very good at collecting gold coins.
True to its name, the main theme of the slot is the aforementioned goat, which appears during the bonus game and may provide a collection of coin pot symbols and amazing power-ups. The game takes place in a location surrounded by alpine landscapes, where players may see green spruce trees with fireflies and birds happily flying around. In addition, the game may be played on any device.
The scatter pays mechanic is applied here, where wins are made when players make a combination of 6 or more matching symbols anywhere on the reels on a dynamic 5×6 grid, which further triggers the cascade feature.
The basic low-value symbols are clubs, spades, hearts and diamonds, the medium-value symbols are rubies, eggs and mushrooms, while the high-value bonus symbols are red, green and purple treasure chests. A combination of 18 or more low-value symbols is worth 15x to 30x, increasing to 45x to 75x and 200x to 500x a player’s bet for the combinations of 18+ medium and high-value bonus symbols. However, besides these symbols, there are also the goat, coin pot and yellow/purple scatter symbols.
Furthermore, the game has a medium/high volatility, a default RTP of 96.40% and a maximum win of 10,000x a player’s bet.
Cascade – when players make a winning combination, this feature is triggered. Upon activation, each symbol that was part of said winning combination will disappear from the reels, and then new ones will appear descending to fill the empty spaces. This feature stops when there are no more winning combinations in sight.
Coin Drop – throughout the spins, coin pot symbols may appear, but with random prize values attached to them. If players land 6+ coin pot symbols at the same time, this feature is triggered. In addition, landing 6 to 9 coin pot symbols awards players with 0.5x, 1x, 2x or 4x, changing to 0.5x, 0.6x, 0.8x, 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x, 25x, 50x, 100x, 250x, 500x and 1000x a player’s bet for 10+ coin symbols, but the values mentioned above are for the current prize money attached to them.
Said feature begins with just the coin pot and scatters symbols staying on the reels. Mystery boxes may also appear when new symbols drop from above, displaying the coin pot, scatters or dud throughout the base game. However, if players land scatters or coin pot, a new mystery box drop will be performed, raising the total award value or triggering free spins. These sequence continues as long as players continue to land scatters or coin pot symbols.
What’s more, if the aforementioned feature is triggered during the free spins, the mystery boxes will show the coin pot, the goat and the dud symbols. Every goat symbol that appears will accumulate values from each coin pot symbol and multipliers are available if players manage to collect a certain number of goats.
Free Spins – this one is triggered if players land 3+ scatters. The number of scatters determines the number of free spins players will get after activation. The options are:
- 3 scatters – they will get 6, 7, 8, 10, 11 or 12 free spins;
- 4 scatters – they will get 10, 11, 12, 14, 15 or 16 free spins;
- 5 scatters – they will get 14, 15 or 16 free spins.
However, if the number of free spins offered doesn’t satisfy the needs of the players, they may want to use the gamble feature to potentially receive more of them.
What’s more, throughout this round, there is an option to land the goat symbols, the game’s collect symbol, as mentioned above. This will generate values from the coin pot symbols that appear and the goat will be collected to the meter located on the right side of the reels. Players may trigger 4 different levels and need 5 collected goats to progress to a new level. The levels are:
- Level 1 – goat symbols get a 2x multiplier for collected coin pots, 5 additional free spins are rewarded;
- Level 2 – goat symbols get 3x multiplier, 5 additional free spins;
- Level 3 – goat symbols get 5x multiplier, 5 additional free spins;
- Level 4 – goat symbols get 10x multiplier, 5 additional free spins.
Gamble – as already mentioned above, this feature is used when players want to get extra free spins even though they have received a certain number of free spins after activating the bonus game. As soon as it is activated, players will spin a gambling wheel consisting of a free spins segment or a no-reward segment. However, if they land on the free spins reward segment, they may choose to gamble again for more or collect the prize, but if they land on the no-reward segment, it’s back to the base game where the bonus mode begins automatically if players have already accumulated 14 free spins.
Push Bet – this one is triggered if players deposit an additional 20% of their bet, which then enhances the odds of triggering the free spins feature by 34%.
Bonus Buy – in order to trigger this feature, players should want to get to the Free Spins immediately. There are several options:
- 100x – landing 3 scatters and activating the free spins feature;
- 200x – landing 4 scatters and triggering free spins;
- 400x – landing 5 scatters and activating free spins;
- 175x – randomly landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters and triggering the free spins bonus game.
Commenting on the launch, Amit Samji, Head of Studio at Push Gaming, commented: “Goat Getter’s theme is a breath of fresh, clean mountain air among the leprechauns and pyramids of today’s market. But it isn’t just a well-appointed concept, the gameplay is tight and the features and mechanics weave together perfectly to deliver a simply great game. We’re sure this one title that gets player’s goats in entirely the right fashion!”
