The Goonies Return Introduction 

As far as movies go, The Goonies is one of the true timeless childhood favourites. Released in 1985, this adventure comedy tells the story of Mikey, Chunk, Data and Mouth, a group of kids living in the "Goon Docks" neighbourhood of Astoria, Oregon. The quartet discovers an old treasure map while trying to save their homes from foreclosure. In turn this map leads them on an adventure to find the long-lost treasure of the 17th century pirate One-Eyed Willy and, in the process, has them chased by the Fratelli criminal family who want the treasure for themselves. This movie remains popular to this very day, and has already served as the inspiration for a Blueprint Gaming slot of the same name. Now it is time for a sequel, again by Blueprint, and this around titled The Goonies Return. The setup is simply enough - a 5-reel, 3-row game with a total of 20 paylines and a set of bonus features based around the movies. Any random spin might bring about one of 7 One-Eyed Willy modifiers, while landing 3 scatters triggers a spin of the wheel which can lead to one of 6 bonus rounds. Will you manage to get One-Eyed Willy's treasure? Whatever you do, remember - Goonies never say die!

The Goonies Return Game Features 

The Goonies Return is a 5-reel, 3-row slot with a total of 20 paylines formed by landing 3 or more matching symbols on adjacent reels. Paylines always start from reel 1, moving from left to right. Forming these paylines is a selection of 9 paying symbols. Of these the pirate flag is the high pay, while the 4 goonies are the mid pays. The A, K, Q and J card royals, on the other hand, are the low pays. The wild can substitute for all symbols except the scatter, which is One-Eyed Willy's symbol. Land 3 or more of these for the One-Eyed Willy bonus feature! The minimum bet is € 0.1 and the max. bet is € 100.

Any random spin might trigger the One-Eyed Willy Key of Plenty feature. Here you select one of 3 keys which will activate one of 6 game modifiers. These are as follows: 

  • Truffle Shuffle Wilds - Wilds are added in random positions on the reels. Some of these might be upgraded to multiplier wilds. You might also get a Truffle reshuffle where Chunk switches reel positions to bring a second win. 
  • Hidden Treasure - A Mikey Wild is added in the middle position of reel 3. Once the reels stop spinning any of the goonie symbols might be changed into wilds to create extra wins. 
  • W-Invention Reels - Data strikes the reels to sync up to 5 reels, causing them to display the same symbols. This might also add coins to the reels, which reveal cash symbols that stick to the reels and trigger a respin. Respins continue until no more cash symbols land on the reels. 
  • Lucky Coins - Mystery symbols are added to the reels. These turn into the same paying symbol when landed. Mystery symbols might also reveal cash symbols which stick to the reels for a respin. Respins repeat until there are no more additional cash symbols on the reels. 
  • Bonus Boost - Adds more scatters to the reels. 
  • Win Spin - Guarantees a big winning spin. 

There are also additional modifiers that can randomly turn a losing spin into a win. A scythe might appear to reset the reels into a win, Shooting Spikes might clear the symbols of one or more reels to create a win, dynamite might be thrown on the reels to upgrade a win or the cave can collapse to remove all symbols in view, leading to a cascade of new, winning symbols. 

The Goonies Return Free Spins and Bonuses 

Landing 3 scatters triggers the One-Eyed Willy bonus feature, which starts off with a spin of the wheel in order to determine which of the 6 rounds you will get. These are as follows: 

Booby Trap Bonus - You get a key which you can turn either left or right. This will reveal either "Cash" to earn you a cash value, "Collect" to end the feature or "Bonus Feature," which will reveal the name of another bonus round to check out. 

  • Waterslide to Wealth Bonus - You move along a trail, collecting cash prizes as you do. Landing on a "Collect" ends the feature, while making it to the end takes you to the Big Money Bonus round. 
  • Skeleton Organ Free Spins - 5 free spins with stacked Skeleton Organ symbols on the reels. Skeleton Organs stick to the reels for the duration. There are also special symbols that, when landed, have you pick a key on the organ to reveal a symbol, which is then overlaid on all Skeleton Organ symbols. Once the free spins are over you then get to pick one of the gold doubloons on screen. This can reveal either extra free spins, entry to another bonus feature or a "Collect" that returns you to the main game. 
  • Fratelli Free Spins - 10 free spins with a Super Slot wild that, when landed, highlights the position it was on. On the last free spin either cash or wild symbols can land on the highlighted positions. Hit 5 cash symbols for the Momma Fratelli Money Spins, a hold and spin-style round that gives you 3 spins with which to land as many more cash symbols as possible. Once the round is over you get to choose 1 of 3 keys for either more free spins, another bonus feature or a Collect.
  • Final Voyage Free Spins - A reel-filling Inferno wild is added on reel 1. This wild moves one reel to the right on each spin, turning Data, Mouth, Chunk and Mikey symbols wild on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th spin. On the 5th spin 5 doubloons will appear on the screen. You pick one to reveal either additional free spins, the One-Eyed Willy Riches feature or a Collect. 
  • One-Eyed Willy Riches Bonus - A hold and spin-style round where you get 3 respins with which to land either cash or character symbol. The effects of these are as follows: 
    • Cash symbols hold bet multipliers. 
    • Mikey awards a round multiplier. 
    • Data increases the number of respins by 1. 
    • Chunk adds his value to all symbols on the reels. 
    • Mouth collects all values in view. 
    • One-Eyed Willy adds an extra row to the slot. 
    • Sloth restarts the power of any other character present on the reels. 

When you get a feature through the wheel (with exception of the One-Eyed Willy Riches Bonus) you can also gamble it to potentially get something better or a Mystery Prize. Then there is the One-Eyed Willy Exchange that, when you get a win of 15x the bet or over, you can either collect the prize or gamble for a chance to win one of the bonus features. 

The Goonies Return Payouts

The pirate flag is the highest paying symbol on the reels, being worth up to 25x the bet. Mikey and Chunk follow, being worth up to 15x the bet, while Mouth and Data can bring up to 20x. The A and K can earn you up to 5x the bet and the Q and J 2.5x. In addition, a full payline of wilds is worth up to 25x the bet. 

The Goonies Return Graphics and Sound 

The Goonies Returns is all about the source film, and it shows!

This is when you will truly be transported to the world of the film, with each feature coming complete with unique visuals and animations. There are also plenty of voice clips that play as you spin the reels, not to mention music lifted straight from the film.
