Showing outstanding performance in the market, the Golden Goddess™ theme brings the entertaining experience players crave with IGT's new Super Stacks™ feature. Selective Stacking locks a major symbol on each spin for exciting base game play and larger payouts. Players choose their Super Stacks™ in the bonus to create giant wins in the feature.
