Royal Goose slot review (Cayetano)

royal-goose-slot review

Video slots by Cayetano are often very entertaining, and there are plenty of nice bonuses that drop as well. That is the good news. Unfortunately, it is also true that, without exception, their slots have a meagre payout rate. This Royal Goose, loosely based on the fairy tale about the Goose that has the golden eggs, has a theoretical payout rate of only 94.93%.

Cayetano is reasonably successful by producing online slots that have appealing themes (often fairy tales) and lots of bonus features

That is a reasonable payout rate for a video slot in Las Vegas or your local casino, but not for an online slot. Let’s put it this way: we don’t see a Cayetano slot appear on our list of best-paying slots any time soon.

If you decide to gamble online, it makes no sense to do it on a slot that pays out way less than other online slots.

And we think that is a pity because the Royal Goose slots are entertaining enough.

Royal Goose has no less than three main bonus features where you can win free spins with sticky wilds, mystery prizes and even a golden egg with a value of 1,000 x the total bet.

Royal Goose gameplay and features

Royal Goose has a fairytale-like theme with golden eggs, princesses, wizards and helpers with an unquenchable thirst.

The game has 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols and 20 fixed paylines.

You can start playing with bets as low as $€ 0.20, and you can go all the way up to $€ 100, per spin.

The variance we estimate to be between low and medium. You can win a maximum of 1,900 x the total bet in the free spin bonus, but only if absolutely everything goes your way.

Symbols and payouts

The Golden Goose is wild and pays a hefty 1,000 coins out with a 5-of-a-kind on an active payline.

The magical ship with the balloons, the breadbasket, the wine and the hatchet are the medium value symbols: they pay out between 150 and 300 coins with 5 identical ones.

The card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A are the low-value symbols: they will earn you between 50 and 130 coins with 5 identical ones.

There are also three types of scatters that activate the bonus.

Happy Princess Free Spins

Right of the bat we are going to start with the bonus feature we feel is the most fun: the Happy Princess Free Spins.

The princess is already happy, is she capable of making you happy as well?

You need at least a minimum of 3 princess scatters. These activate the free spin bonus; 10 free spins with extra features.

These extra features consist of sticky wilds and low-value symbol removal.

Every new wild you spin changes into a sticky wild and removes a low-value symbol from the game.

So it is essential to spin as many wilds as possible, as quickly as possible to assure that every turn will be a guaranteed payout coming your way.

Kings Task Bonus

Three or more scattered Kings activate the somewhat tedious Kings Tasks Bonus.

The king has to be entertained and commands his subjects to drink as much wine as possible (level 1), eat bread (level 2) or find each other in love (level 3).

The further you can progress in the game, the more money you can win.

The main prize of 1,000 x the total bet is attractive, but man oh man, sometimes this bonus feature seems to take forever.

We prefer our gameplay to be fast and furious, which is not the case in the Kings Tasks Bonus.

Simpleton’s Luck Bonus

For this bonus, you only need one scatter, and it is that of the simple farm boy on the middle reel.

Subsequently, you are taken to a pick and click bonus, where you have a choice out of 3 magical trees. There are three levels, and if you manage to get to the final level, you can win a prize of 100 x the total bet.

You do have to find the golden egg for that though.

Our verdict on the Royal Goose video slot

Royal Goose is a nice slot, with one enjoyable bonus feature (The Happy Princess Free Spins) and two somewhat less exciting bonus features.

The fairy tale theme is nicely designed, and the balance of the game is excellent.

So why only two stars as the final score?

Because of the payout rate that is much too low coming in under 95%.

2 out of 5 stars.
