Good Girl Bad Girl Slot Review
Good Girl Bad Girl is played on a five reel board, where each reel is three symbols tall. Players can play this game on fifteen paylines, which pay differently depending on what mode is currently active. Good mode pays left to right, while Bad mode is vice versa. Playing the combined mode allows for those paylines to pay both ways; at the cost of doubling your current wager. To win, collect three or more identical icons following one of the fifteen active paylines.
What kind of special features can you expect to see? Well, there’s a few, with slight differences between the two modes. There’s two special Wilds that can appear in certain reels and with active multipliers. There’s a pick-and-click bonus that can grant cash prizes or force you to end it early. Gamblers will also have access to Double Up; predict the coin toss correctly to double your win! Finally, there’s the money wheel, where you can win cash prizes, free spins, or progressive jackpots!
Theme & Symbols
No matter what the name says, the heaven versus hell idea is deeply rooted in this Betsoft release. Usually, software providers treat their themes as window dressing; something new for players to gawk at. Betsoft takes it one step further by integrating Good Girl Bad Girl’s theme into its mechanics. It lets you commit to one faction, betray them for another, or just work mercenary between the two.
The vast majority of the slot’s background image is blocked by its reels. For once, though, this is actually a good thing! It allows the game to create a believable transition from heaven’s pearly gates to the rotten pits of hell! In fact, the artists went all out on this idea, even splitting the user interface into half-heaven, half-hell categories. Symbol designs also retain this release’s dualistic nature. For every Angel, there’s a Devil. Each hare has to face off against a devilish cat. All special icons also have a good and bad variant, following the same color scheme. The only symbols that are an exception to this are A, K, Q, J and 10, which are either all heaven or all hell.
How to Play Good Girl Bad Girl
Good Girl Bad Girl is played on a 5×3 board with 15 fixed paylines which can pay left to right, right to left, or both ways. The maximum prize you can win seems to be 1333x your total stake, if we don’t account for the two progressive jackpots! Wait, if there’s two progressive jackpots, why even list the fixed jackpot? Because that’s what the vast majority of players have to look forward to. The progressive jackpots are only available to online gamblers who bet max in any of the three modes.
We’ll admit, we hoped the developers would do more with this theme and special features. It would have been quite cool to lock one special feature to hell, and one to heaven. Committing to one side should have also been rewarded. As it stands, you have access to everything if you pick the combined mode. Great for convenience, less so for gameplay diversity.
Changing your bet is done by adjusting the coin value, number of active paylines and your bet per payline. This allows players to fine-tune their wagers between €0.15 and €150 on each spin. Keep in mind your bet also increases if you choose to play the combined mode. It doubles your total stake, but allows your paylines to go both ways, rather than just left to right or right to left.
Wilds: The pitchfork and halo icons are special Wilds, used to trigger two different special features. The first one on the list are Wilds with multipliers! The pitchfork gets an advantage, as it can appear with a multiplier reaching up to 4x. In contrast, heaven’s multiplier only goes up to 2x.
The second bonus these two symbols can create is a pick-and-click special feature. When the halo and pitchfork land next to each other, this bonus is triggered. Depending on the mode you’re playing, you’ll get different gifts. In all four gifts, there’s a small, medium and large cash prizes, as well as the Collect. Find as many cash prizes as you can without stumbling onto the Collect for big wins.
Guess the outcome of a coin flip correctly to double your current win. Guessing wrong means you lose everything you’ve won so far, however.
Land three money wheel icons on the first, third and fifth reel to win the Money Wheel bonus. Depending on your game mode, you will get the Good or Bad wheel, while combined mode gamblers get to choose. The wheel can award free spins, cash prizes, or one of two progressive jackpots, if you’re eligible for them.
Good Girl Bad Girl Payouts
Good Girl Bad Girl has a top prize of 1333.33x your total bet with a medium variance. This slot’s RTP is 97.79% in Good, 97.70% in Combined, and 97.30% in Bad mode.
We can’t really find any big faults with this game. There are some things which we cannot stand, don’t get us wrong. But these are minor pet peeves considering everything else Betsoft’s release offers.
Good Girl Bad Girl combines its theme and gameplay together for great success. You certainly feel more invested in the conflict when you can choose to pick a side, after all!
It also avoids the trouble of boring gamblers with its special features by giving you multiple versions of each. What kind of gifts you receive, the prizes you can win from the Money Wheel – each mode is different.
It also looks quite cool visually, which is always a plus. We didn’t expect a slot from 2014 to have held up as well as it did.
There’s really no reason to swap out of Combined mode. Sure, you have to pay a little more, but you gain so much that it’s not worth playing the other two modes.
We’re not too pleased with the maximum prize you can win. Not counting the progressive jackpot, your top score goes up to 1333.33x your total stake. A game like this needs a better fixed jackpot.
So, what’s our final verdict? We had fun with it, and we do recommend it if what we wrote sounds interesting. But this Betsoft release needs a little more effort before it can make it into the big leagues.
