Greedy Goblins Slots is a somewhat ugly game that is well done and manages to be fun despite the point being that everything is hideous. It takes Dreamworks quality rendering and combines it with decent gameplay mechanics for what is for the most part a good time. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with it, mostly wishing that they’d picked a better theme. Shrek took orcs and goblins and made them cute, but Greedy Goblins Slots kept them ugly. Odd choice considering we’re paying to look at them, but we respect their decisions just the same.
If you’re a fan of the look, and looking to get greedy yourself, skip this review and give Greedy Goblins Slots. It’s not that bad, albeit not great, so you won’t be disappointed.
The premise of Greedy Goblins Slots is goblins. And gold. Treasure? You probably knew. They take the myths and elements of that manner of creature and strewn it about the slot in ways that make sense but never manage to look all that cute. Goblins in general as supposed to be ugly, so it’s fitting, if not odd.
Graphics in Greedy Goblins Slots are good, but at the same time intentionally ugly. Everything is crisp, clear, colorful, and compelling to look at, which makes your time spent playing all the easier because of how easy they are on the eyes. The content, however, and style, is where things are iffy. It isn’t that it’s not well done. It is. And we like it. But goblins in general and the way they’ve themed the game is intentionally ugly in the same way slime toys are disgusting to attract little kids.
Maybe it’s a matter of taste, but we personally would rather the clearly talented artists that made this game have used their skills and time to make something pretty, not hideous. Is that so much to ask? That art looks pleasant?
Gameplay in Greedy Goblins Slots is standard. At 5 reels and 30 pay lines, it does not break the mold there, chosing instead to keep things classy in ways we can respect.
Betting here ranges from a couple of pennies to fifty cents, making this an accessible slot that anyone can jump into in hopes of winning a lot of money without worrying about necessarily breaking the bank in the process. Max bets cap out at $75, which tends to be how we rolled when we played it a bunch for our review.
The bonus round is called Sticky Wild Reels, which is okay, but much like the goblin’s face, not all that inviting.

* Moderate intensity players that have gotten their feet plenty wet in the online slots world and are looking for something a little more involved
* Jaded slot vets

* People more used to normal video games that are looking to get their feet wet in the world of online slots
Who is the Game NOT For?
Although we enjoy this slot, it is not for everybody. In particular, it may not be your cup of tea if this describes you in any fashion:
* Averse to winning money online
* Looking for something truly innovative in the genre
* You find the theme in any way offputting
Is it Buggy?
In the time we spent playing this game, we did not encounter any bugs, problems, or errors. The same cannot be said for all slots of this genre, so we commend the developers for a job well done on that. We also encountered no issues in processing winnings or payments, and everything ran very smooth just like you would expect across many varied devices in a variety of ecosystems and operating systems.
Greedy Goblins Slots is a game we’re doing our best not to hate on. Some people really like the look of gremlins, goblins, orcs, and all manner of ugly things. They’re supposed to be that way, like a Halloween witch. Personally, however, we like our witches hot, and we like our goblins pretty. If you’re in disagreement, feel free to prove it by playing this game. If you feel like us, help us understand why by giving this game a spin and telling us what you think. We just feel odd playing an ugly game that’s intentionally creepy in a non horror way. It’s just weird.
It’s a well made game aside from that, however, and worth at least a passing spin.
