Golden Grimoire Slot

 

A kind of magic will be in the air when you open the Golden Grimoire slot. Read our review of the Netent game to see how the mystery books will transform to create winning combinations for up to 200x your bet in a single spin. Originating from the French language, a grimoire is a textbook of magic that contains among other things instructions on how to summon spirits, build amulets and cast spells. Certainly plenty of fodder for an online video slot since they do have their magical moments when those mega wins hit the reels.

Slot Details

Enter a mystical room at night where the moonshine on a cloudless night shining through the round window to sparsely illuminate rustic armoires and flower pots. Together with the dim candle lights in the front of the frameless game window and the intermittent appearance of ancient hieroglyphs on the walls, it creates a eerie feeling of suspense and mystery, which is only heightened by a rumbling soundtrack mixed with classical tones that changes to dramatic crescendos on teaser spins, big wins and when the golden grimoire lands on the reels.

Golden Grimoire is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 20 fixed pay lines, featuring wild substitutions, mystery symbol transformation and a free spins round with sticky mystery symbols.

 

 

The RTP of this low variance game is set at 96.44%. You can spin the reels of this slot on any mobile, tablet or desktop from 0.20 to 400 coins. Hit five on a pay lines to win 0.75x to 5x your bet.The maximum win potential is an unusually 200x bet for a full screen of the top symbol or in combination with wild symbols. This puts Golden Grimoire into the same class with Universal Monsters: The Phantom’s Curse™ and Witchcraft Academy. Not the best association in our view as we call this slot category egg-timers where a balance slowly but steadily decreases with little potential to score substantial wins.

The low-value symbols glow with a coloured hue that match the colours of the high value symbols. They are in ascending order – diamonds with a purple hue, spades with a blue hue, clubs with a green hue and hearts with a red hue. At the high end are then four coloured gems, each held by a mystical critter – a purple gem held by scarab, a blue gem held by a snake, a green gem held by a kraken-like creature and a red gem held by a spider.

The wild symbol is a golden skull, appearing only when revealed from the mystery symbol transformation and will substitute for all symbols except scatters. Those are an artistically designed tile with a keyhole and the word itself across it.

Mystery Symbols Transformation Mechanic Explained

There is some action happening in the base game, although there is actually only one distinct feature other than scoring organic multi-line wins that can have an substantial impact on the gaming balance. Mystery grimoires marked with a question mark can appear on any spin on reels three, four and five. Once they settle, they will transform into a random pay symbol or the wild symbol. Should the unveiled symbol match the one present on reel one then they will connect from the right-most transformed symbol to the front and turn all other symbols in between into the same symbol. Should the wild appear after the transformation than all symbols up to reel two will change into the wild symbol.

Golden Grimoire Free Spins Feature

The magic transformations will be seen at a higher frequency in the free spins round, providing more potential to hit substantial wins. Scatters anywhere on reel one, three and five in one spin will trigger 8 free spins, which cannot be retriggered. The mystery books can now appear on reels two to five instead of just three to five. All grimoires landing on a free spin will turn into a sticky mystery symbol and will stay locked in place until the end of the round. All sticky and any further mystery symbols landing on a free spin will reveal again one common pay symbol and connect to the front reel using the same mechanic as in the base game.

Our Verdict

NetEnt seems to be intermittently change from producing awesome hit slots like Vikings to churning our low-variance drivel. A maximum win of 200x the bet for a full screen of the top symbol looks awfully low and must happen rather often to have a decent winning session. Whilst we understand that NetEnt is trying to cover all types of players, it always leaves a bland taste when we see games like Golden Grimoire. Still, we think it will be a good slot to use for bonus wagering as the low variance will ensure that balances won’t vanish quickly even on a rainy day.

 

Good Luck!
