Gameplay

Golden Grimoire slot game is set in a witch’s or wizard’s workshop where he or she does his or her magic work. All attributes are present and the grimoire, the book of magic spells, is to do the witch’s great work. Occult markings and secret scripts appear on and around the reels, in addition to images of the grimoire and several gemstones that are all encrusted with golden jewellery shaped in different animals like snakes, spiders and beetles. The image of the golden skull functions as the wild symbol and the keyhole in the form of a pyramid placed in a circle is the Scatter symbol. The symbols with the gemstones are the highest-paying symbol, with which you can make a maximum win of 200 times your bet per spin if you manage to play 5 of a kind in one round. There is a lot of animation whenever you hit a big win. A moving circle appears emitting bright lights and sparkling gems as if another dimension has been opened from where the winnings are pouring in.

Special Features

Mystery Symbols

The image of the Grimoire is the mystery symbol and it can land on reels 2,3 and 4 as a Stacked symbol. Like a Wild symbol, the mystery symbols can randomly transform in any other symbol to help you form a winning combination.

Wild Symbols

Wild symbols are one of the slot game staple features and fulfil their usual symbol substituting functions. In Golden Grimoire Wilds are triggered by the mystery symbol rather than that they appear on the reels by themselves.

Free Spins

Free Spins mode is activated when you play 3 Scatter symbols appearing on reels 1,3 and 5 in one round. You get 8 free rounds in this mode. During free spins Mystery symbols become Sticky on reels 2,3,4 and 5.

Sticky Mystery Symbols

Sticky Mystery symbols appear in Free Spins mode and once they appear they stay in place for the duration of Free Spins. They randomly change to another symbol with every spin to increase your win chances.

Verdict

As we can expect from NetEnt, Golden Grimoire is a beautifully designed slot game that will especially appeal to those who love the occult magic slot game theme. The game has few features, that are not terribly exciting. As a low volatility slot with a maximum win of 200 times your stake, the win potential of this game is rather low. You are only awarded 8 free rounds in free spins mode and you can’t retrigger this mode or win additional free rounds during free spins. This game is more interesting for those players who just want to kill some time and love emerging themselves in beautiful graphics only. However, if you want to have proper changes to make some wins too, Golden Grimoire might be unsatisfactory.
