Golden Grimoire Slot Review

Golden Grimoire Slot Review :

Golden Grimoire can be translated to the Golden book of spells! First, the game looked very simple but later on when we saw the introduction film and heard the mysterious voice we got curious about this game. A golden book of spells? The wizard is NetEnt, spells created by NetEnt! It sounded really promising! Read the full Golden Grimoire Slot Review below.

About the symbols & more:

The background looks nice. You are in a chamber with lots of candles and through a round window, you can see towards space and see some stars. You can also see some furniture in the background.

Golden Grimoire is a 5-reel, 4-row slot. There are 8 standard symbols in the game. The lower valued symbols are diamonds, hearts, clubs, and spades. The higher valued symbols are a red gem with a spider, a green gem, a blue gem with a snake and a purple gem with a fly. The red gem is the most valuable symbol. There is also a wild, mystery and a scatter symbol.

The wild symbol, the mystery symbol & more:

The wild symbol is a golden skull and only shows up during a mystery symbol transformation. The wild-symbol as in many other games, substitutes for all symbols except the scatter symbols. The mystery symbol is a grimoire with a question mark on top of it. In the base game, these mystery symbols can appear on reels 3, 4 and 5. These symbols will transform into a random symbol or the golden skull (the wild symbol).

If the transformed symbol is the same as the symbol on the first reel they will connect from the symbol that is most transformed on the right side. All the symbols between the most transformed on the right side and the symbol on reel one will be turned into the same symbol. If the golden skull (wild symbol) appears after the transformation, all symbols will become wild symbols up to reel 2.

Free spins - feature:

Yes, it is possible to get Freespins. You can receive scatter symbols on reel 1,3 and 5. If you get 3 scatter symbols, you will receive 8 Freespins. In the base game, you can only get mystery symbols (the grimoires) on reel 3,4 and 5, in free spins mode, it’s possible to get mystery-symbols on reels 2,3,4 and 5. In free spins-mode, the grimoires that land on the game field will get stuck on the game field. The grimoires will get locked. This is a nice feature but the maximum win during freespins in only 200X.

Verdict & Game-test:

Many gamblers and reviewers praise the graphics. The graphics are okay but maybe not extraordinary or spectacular. When testing the game, we were unlucky and it took us forever to collect 3 scatter-symbols and receive Free spins. It’s nice with some free spins and locked symbols are fun but it’s a pity that free spins can’t get re-triggered. The sound is really good and increases the mysterious feeling. The game is quite fast but sometimes when you get grimoires and they transform, you have to wait for too long.

We also tested the game on mobile where you can push on the rabbit symbol and the game will become faster but that is not possible on a desktop. On many NetEnt games, there is a rabbit symbol on the mobile version. When you push on it the game speed will increase. Perhaps NetEnt should implement that to the desktop version on some games. Maybe footage is not needed but some lightning or an additional spell would certainly be nice.

The game is okay and better than some of the more boring NetEnt games but not extraordinary or super fun! We give the game a 3.5/5 star rating in our Golden Grimoire Slot Review.
