Review and recommendations by our testing team
- Golden Grimoire slot from NetEnt provider made me feel like a slot combining the graphics from Phantom of The Opera and a partly gameplay from Wolf Cub slot. This slot has its own features, which include a fairly nice graphics part, simple and clear gameplay, the possibility of getting big win not only during free spins, but also in the usual spins, as well as the high potential for getting an expensive combination, but a low maximum winning, only 200x total bets.
- In the usual spins, the slot does not often give out payment combinations without the participation of the bonus feature, but quite often it gives out a bonus feature, which, in this case, does not always give out a win (even the minimum). Because of this, the slot makes the feeling that doesn’t keep the balance well, which in my opinion, is not the truth. In long-distance, with payment combinations with the help of the bonus feature is compensating for the losses and I believe the slot is good for keeping the balance.
- The bonus feature is reduced to giving of a random symbol (book symbol), and if it coincides with the symbol in the first reel, it copies it from right to left. Accordingly, as in many reels, the random symbol is located, the more expensive the combination will be. Random symbols are triggered quite often, almost every few spins, but their coincidence with the first reel is not so frequent. At the same time, the slot often gives "coincidences" in series and, accordingly, you can get quite a large total winning. The average value ranges from several bets to 30x – 40x bets, and the maximum win per spin was 120x.
- The gameplay in the free spins feature has no big differences from the usual spins except that random symbol which remains for all free spins. The number of spins is 8, and the function cannot be re-triggered. The potential for getting a big win here is exactly the same as in the main game. So, during testing, the minimum win was 4x bets, and the maximum was 160x, while the average was about 30x – 60x total bets.
This slot is quite suitable for playing with bonus money. While playing for real money, I would recommend only short distances before receiving a series of average wins. I think that long sessions are not good due to the low cost of the top combination and, accordingly, the lack of potential for getting a large win (x500+ bets).
Alternative tester’s opinion
Golden Grimoire slot is another new product from the global online slots provider, Netent. In my opinion, they decided this time not to complicate the slot with bonus features, there are three of them and they are pretty simple. The slot has volatility from low to average, but apparently closer to the average. Playing on high bets, the slot gave almost nothing, but when playing at small or medium bets, the machine started at least some activity, and the winnings appeared more often and bonus features were triggered more often. In general, the slot is quite interesting, but I advise you to follow my recommendations about the size of the bet in the game.
True, I did find a couple of minuses in the slot rules (for Netent, this doesn’t look like it at all) and “misunderstandings” with the stated maximum win of 320 000 coins. The biggest prize here is 200x total bets (full screen of the top symbol “red ruby with a spider”), i.e. even playing max coins at 200 coins, the payout will be 40 000 coins. I dare to suggest that the figure of 320 000 is the maximum winning multiplied by 8 bonus free spins: 40 000 coins x 8 free spins = 320 000 coins. Then the question is, if the slot can display the full screen of the most expensive symbol 8 times in a row, then why the option of dropping the same combination during the usual spins, where there are no restrictions on the number of spins, is excluded, it is strange a little. If someone can figure out how exactly the figure of 320 000 coins turned out, please, on this website below you can leave a comment and share your opinion on this matter. Thank.
