Golden Grimoire is the second slot from NetEnt to appear on Mad About Slots so far in 2019, and its macabre magical theme will leave you spellbound. The slot game takes its name from the French word “grimoire” which refers to a book of the occult which allows the reader to summon supernatural beings, cast spells, and create magical objects.
There are five reels and four rows of symbols which offer you twenty paylines on which to create wins from left-to-right using glowing amulets, skulls, talismans, and playing card suits.
The atmospheric images and sound effects provide a compelling and tension-filled playing experience. A sorcerer’s study provides the setting for the slot, and the huge window dimly lights the stone walls at the rear and the burning candles in the forefront. Upon the tables at either side of the reels, you can see stacks of books, mysterious artefacts, and potion bottles, and when a particular feature is triggered, the items begin to levitate.
The main character itself can also appear on the screen in its role as the Mystery Symbol, and we’ll be explaining more about how it works very shortly.
Along the bottom of the reel set, you have a series of buttons that let you view the rules and paytable, mute the sounds, set the reels to spin automatically, place the maximum bet, alter the coin value, and change the bet level. N.B., if you choose to play the Golden Grimoire slot on a mobile device, the buttons appear within an expandable menu system at the bottom-right.
The game can adapt to almost any budget with its minimum bet-per-spin of 20p and maximum bet-per-spin of £400. And, although there’s no progressive jackpot up for grabs, you still have the chance to win up to 8,000 coins on a single spin. The 96.4% RTP is also higher than average.
The Skull is the wild symbol in the slot, and it can complete winning combinations by substituting for other symbols except for the keyhole. However, the wild can only appear on the reels as a result of the Mystery Symbol Feature.
The Keyhole represents the scatter symbol in the slot game, and it can be used to trigger the Free Spins Bonus.
The glowing Golden Grimoire can appear as a stacked Mystery Symbol on any spin on Reels 3, 4, and 5, and after the reels have stopped spinning, it turns into a randomly-chosen symbol from the paytable which can also include the Skull wild. If the symbol that’s chosen is the same as the one displayed on the same row of Reel 1, the symbols between them are transformed as well.
The Free Spins Bonus in the Golden Grimoire slot by NetEnt is awarded when three scatters land in any position on Reels 1, 3, and 5. Armed with eight free games, you can now achieve more wins as the Mystery Symbol becomes sticky for the duration of the bonus and can also appear on four reels rather than just three.
