Golden Grimoire is a magic-themed slot that takes you back to a time of magic and mysteries. The slot is based on a book of spells where you will come across a set of instructions to create metaphysical objects that may guide you to huge game wins.
The game opens to the desk of a sorcerer with ancient books, occult artifacts, and flickering candles decorating the scenery. To one side is a giant rose window that gives a view of the stars and moonlight.
The reels and symbols are suspended in mid-air to give the game a more magical look. You get to create magic on a standard 5 reels, 4 rows setup with 40 active Paylines.
How to play
To start the game and hit magical wins, you would have to place a stake from 0.20 up to 400 coins per spin.
Wins are triggered by landing at least three of the same symbol types on the reels. You will find eight regular game symbols. In the low-pay category are card suits, spades, clubs, diamonds, and hearts.
High-pay symbols include mystical critters, scarabs, snakes, Krakens, and a spider. The latter pays the best awarding you 5x the stake for 5 on a Payline.
Golden Grimoire Slot Special Features
The wild symbol, as usual, will replace all other game symbols bar the scatter and mystery symbol.
Mystery Symbol Feature
On the grid, you will come across the Mystery symbol feature. When 1 or more Mystery spellbook symbol lands on the reels, a random symbol will be chosen. This can be any symbol including the wild.
The Mystery symbol can only be landed on reels 3, 4, and 5. When in play, all mystery symbols will be transformed into the chosen symbol. If the chosen symbol correlates with the left symbol in the same row, then all symbols in between them will also be transformed into the chosen symbol.
If the Mystery symbol turns out to be a wild, then the left symbol in that row will also become a wild symbol.
When you land three scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 with the same spin, you will be awarded 8 free spins. Rather than a mystery symbol, Sticky Mystery symbols will be landed on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 during this feature.
The Sticky Mystery Symbol acts just like the Mystery symbols and will remain in position throughout the free spins bonus round.
This slot doesn’t match the action and bonus it delivers with a jackpot prize or a high win potential. Its max win comes at 200x the stake.
Return to Player (RTP)
Golden Grimoire is a low variance slot with an RTP value of 96.44%.
Though this game offers nice visuals, it doesn’t reward players with huge rewards as you might expect. The game’s max payout only comes at 200x the stake so high rollers might not think too much of this slot.
However, casual punters and low-risk bettors will enjoy easy wins on the reels even with their first spin.
