Pragmatic Play has released its second title this month, with the fantasy-based Goblin Heist Powernudge also the second game to incorporate the new high-tech mechanic, following the debut of the Egyptian odyssey Rise of Giza in August 2021.
Here, players are transported to a mischief-ridden kingdom where treasure-hungry creatures pack the reels in search of wins worth up to 4,000x the bet, and a rather sinister-looking goblin stands to the left of the 5×3, 10-payline grid gripping a sack of loot. As is the norm with Pragmatic’s slots, the graphics are outstanding and the soundtrack adds an air of mystery to the gameplay experience.
In this fantasy realm, it will take three matching symbols to land on a payline to form winning combinations. Wins can start from any reel and with each one, the Powernudge mechanic is activated and reels that contain at least one winning symbol will “nudge” down one position. Non-winning reels respin. This nudge process continues until there are no longer any winning combinations on the screen.
The paytable comprises seven regular pay symbols including a bloody skull key, a scroll and a horn, which are the lower pays, while goblin-shaped dynamite, a treasure chest, an Elvin knight and a goblin represent the high pays. Landing a five-of-a-kind combination is worth 1 to 20 times the stake.
There are no wilds in the game, but in the base game there is a golden lion Mystery Money Symbol, and players who are lucky to land at least six of these at the same time, will activate the Money Respin feature. While in this bonus round, multipliers and cash values are randomly revealed on the golden lion icons and they are added to any wins that accumulate. The grid continues to nudge until there are no longer any Mystery Money symbols on the screen.
Buy Free Respins:
Depending on the jurisdiction, players can choose to use the Buy Free Respins feature, which will automatically dial up six or more Money symbols and take them directly to the bonus round. The cost of doing so is 100x the stake.
Commenting on the new hit slot via company presser, Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer for Pragmatic Play, said…
“We’re thrilled to bring back the PowerNudge™ mechanic in an entirely new playing environment, putting players at the heart of the action with a gaming experience that adds an extra layer of immersion and anticipation as the reels shift.
“Goblin Heist PowerNudge™ offers crisp visuals, a captivating theme and intuitive sound effects, as well as a progressive feature that really stirs up the excitement.”
Playable on any device, the video slot follows the recently released Fire Strike 2, which according to Pragmatic, is set to become a staple of their slots portfolio, along with the Viking-themed slot, North Guardians, as well as the high-flying Spirit of Adventure and Clover Gold. Each of the games can be found in the multi-product content provider’s rapidly expanding portfolio of more than 200 HTML5 titles.
