Golden Grimoire Slot. NetEnt invites you to enter the dark, mysterious and strangely alluring world of Golden Grimoire, a slot steeped in ancient magic. Within the dusty pages on an ancient magic book titled The Golden Grimoire, lie many strange spins, mysterious wins, and magical prizes.
Golden Grimoire is made up of mysterious hovering symbols making up five reels and four rows, with a total of 40 fixed paylines. Once the tattered leaves of the Golden Grimoire are opened, you’ll be surprised with a Mystery Symbol feature, wild symbols, up to eight free spins, and a Sticky Mystery Symbol feature.
Golden Grimoire Game Features
Symbols include four gems held by four different animals and four playing card suits that match the colours of the higher win symbols. Then, there are a few special symbols which trigger bonus features in Golden Grimoire. The first is the elusive wild symbol which appears only if a symbol transforms into a wild thanks to the Mystery Symbol feature. When it appears, it substitutes for any symbol except for mystery symbols and scatters. The scatter is a golden key hole symbol and the mystery symbol is represented by an ancient spell book.
Mystery Symbol feature
The mystery symbol can appear on reels three, four, and five only during the main game. When one or more mystery symbol lands on the reels, a random symbol is chosen to be transformed and all mystery symbols on the reels will reveal the same, chosen symbol. The mystery symbol can transform into any symbol except a scatter. What’s more if that if the transformed mystery symbol happens to match the leftmost symbol in that same row, all the symbols in between them will also change into the same symbol! Even better, if the mystery symbol transforms into a wild, then all the symbols in between the transformed mystery symbol (wild) and the leftmost symbol will turn wild, even if the symbol on the leftmost reel doesn’t match the transformed mystery symbol!
Golden Grimoire Free Spins and bonuses
Three fiery scatter symbols appearing on reels one, three, and five will lead you to eight free spins. During the free spins, the mystery symbol is replaced with a sticky mystery symbol that will appear on all reels except for reel one. Sticky mystery symbols act like regular mystery symbols but are even better because once they land, they will stay in place for the duration of the free spins round.
Golden Grimoire Payouts
There are four medium win symbols in Golden Grimoire and four low win symbols, making things very simple and straightforward. The highest paying symbol is the red gem held by a golden scarab beetle and this pays 0.5x your bet for three symbols on a line and 5x your bet for a hit of five. Next is the green gem, worth between 0.4x and 3.75x your bet, followed by the blue gem which pays between 0.25x and 2x your bet. The purple gem is worth up to 1.5x your bet. As for the playing card suits, the heart and the club are worth the most as these will multiply your bet by at least 0.15x and up to 1x. The spade and the diamond are worth a maximum of 0.75x your bet.
Golden Grimoire Graphics and Sound
