Game of the Week

The Goonies Slot™: White Hat Gaming, RTP 96%

This week's slot game of the week is a branded slot from White Hat Gaming, and it brings back to life the classic 1985 cult film, The Goonies™. Set on 5x3 reels with 20 lines, this slot reunites the gang in a feature-rich real money explosion!

The action kicks off in the base game, with multiple bonus rounds and features to enjoy. The skeleton key sits on the right of the reels, and when active (green), it triggers one of six features, including Chunk's Truffle Shuffle, which adds extra wilds to the reels, and Data's Colossal Symbol, which covers reels 1-3 for bigger and better wins. Land 3+ scatters, and you'll move through to a new screen with a spinning wheel; this contains six bonus rounds and decides which you'll get. You can also gamble your way up to the top bonus rounds, One-Eyed Willy's Treasure round!
