Powered by Quickspin software, The Grand Slot has an unusual six reels. It transports players back to the golden age of the Roaring Twenties and all the glitz, glamour and sheer decadent luxury of the Great Gatsby and Hollywood’s Golden Age. Expect a visually sophisticated affair, with more than a hint of Art Deco style, not to mention stacks of features to maximise the fun.
The six reels take a geometric form, in which the rows are between three and four symbols high, working from left to right, creating 214 ways of winning. There’s a gold frame in the background which represents a classic theatre, with a purple background beyond that.
How to play
To get the game off to a flying start, set your bets and hit Spin or use the Autoplay function if preferred. As ever, you can play on the device of your choosing, mobile or desktop, while the betting range from 10p to £100 a spin suits both low and high rollers.
Among the line-up of symbols, you’ll find lower-value clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades plus green and purple gemstones which pay more. The green gemstone is the most lucrative, at eight times stake when you land six in a row.
The Grand Slot special features
There are Scatters in The Grand, as well as Wild icons.
Free spins round
This is where you can expect to experience most of the bigger wins. Land three to six Scatters for up to 15 free goes.
If you land three bonus symbols on Reels 3, 4 and 5, a feature wheel called the GRANDomizer shows up to unlock one of the three features mentioned below, plus between one and three further whirls.
Whichever of the three features is unlocked will trigger on every spin, and last for the rest of the round. If you manage to unlock all of them, and they appear in this order on each spin which follows: Sync, Wilds and Nudge.
A hat trick of features
This trio of features is key to The Grand Slot. One at a time may launch at random during the main game:
- Sync feature – When this applies, up to three pairs of reels (which are the same height) synchronise for extra wins.
- Wilds feature – This creates between four and eight random Wilds on the reels, to replace all symbols except the Scatters.
- Nudge feature – When this launches, between one and three reels, move a single position up or down.
Return to Player (RTP)
You’ll need to be aware from the outset that this is a highly volatile game, although RTP or Return to Player is a decent average at 96.58%.
The Grand Slot does feel refreshingly different in many ways to other offerings from this studio’s stable. However, you may not find it that spectacularly innovative, and there are still some elements of other Quickspin games in The Grand.
And while reviewers have praised the slot’s brilliant gaming mechanics and the way it oozes elegance, it hasn’t been universally adored across the industry.
We definitely think it’s worth giving a whirl, though. Let us know how you got on.
