Fairy Tale Theme
Goldilocks and the three Bears is the full name of the slots NZ, as it is the full name of the fairy tale. In the story a blonde haired girl named Goldilocks breaks into a cottage in the woods. There she finds three of everything, three chairs, three bowls of porridge and three beds. The smallest one is always just right for her, and she ends up falling asleep on the smallest bed. This is never a good plan for a burglar as the inhabitants of the home may arrive at any second. In this case the cottage is owned by a family of bears. Baby bear, Momma bear and Daddy bear. They discover Goldilocks and are understandably rather upset. She ends up running off into the woods leaving the bears rather shaken up.
The slot does a good job of representing all this on the reels. The reels are set in a wood with wooden edging and cobbles to the bottom of them. All of the colours are the same as one would find in a children’s book, soft on the eye. The game does not play any music unless you hit the feature. Graphically wise Goldilocks is a pretty slot with a modern design that looks like the pictures from a children’s book.
The symbols in Goldilocks are mostly from the story. We have the three bears, momma baby and daddy and a rather roughed up looking teddy bear. These are worth 200 times your line stake for all of them except daddy bear who is worth 250 times. Below them on the paytable are poker card icons which are worth up to 100 times your line stake.
Two wilds are represented by the cottage and the bowl of porridge. The cottage acts like a regular wild, replacing all base symbols in the game. It is also the highest paying symbol with 1000 times your line stake for five of them in a row on an active payline. Porridge Bowl wilds act in the same way, but carry a multiplier with them too. The more porridge bowls you find that help to create your win, the higher the multiplier will be.
Wild Bears Feature
Plain goldilocks scatter will award scatter symbols as well as free games. Here you will win an initial ten free spins, which can be increased with the bears turns wild feature. If you find progressive goldilocks scatters which look different to the regular Goldilocks scatters, she will turn all of the bears wild. Momma and Baby bear will award you with additional free spins, but Daddy bear just becomes wild for this feature.
