The Grand Galore Slot Review – ELK Studios
We have had the infamous GOLD series and classic series from the studio ELK Studios. The studio is most known for both of these game series, with other successful releases such as ‘Dream Zone‘ and ‘IO‘. Both have unique visuals and exciting features on offer. Next from the studio is titled ‘Grand Galore‘, which is available to play now across all sites.
The Grand Galore surprises me with the lack of ‘Grand’ within the visual aspects. The slot background is red with jewels glowing in simple animations. The reel border is gold and there is no real detail except within symbol artwork. ELK Studios normally surprises me with their unique visual design and theme choices. This time it is bland and lacklustre, I hope next time the studio impresses.
This slot has a setup of 6 reels by 4 – 10 rows, this includes 4,096 – 1,000,000 pay lines. The Grand Galore is a high variance game with a set RTP of 96% and max win capped at 10,000x. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.
The Grand Galore Symbols & Pay Table
There are 11 symbols in total, this includes 4 low paying symbols. These are represented by J, Q, K and A. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by blue, green, purple, red gems and a red & gold lion sculpture. In additon to these regular symbols is a golden wild and diamond bonus scatter. The highest paying symbol is the lion premium sculpture, which pays 5x for 6 across a pay line. Wilds substitute for all paying symbols.
The Grand Galore Features
All reels which contribute to a win expand with one row. Both winning symbols and the added symbol positions respin and a reel can expand up to 10 rows. Respinning symbols next to each other on a reel always stop on the same symbol. 2-5 neighbouring reels can randomly synchronize during a respin. The synchronized reels stop on the same symbol.
Landing 3 or more scatter symbols during one base game spin triggers the ‘Free Spins’ feature. 3 Scatters Award = 10 Free Spins, 4 Scatters Award = 15 Free Spins, 5 Scatters Award = 20 Free Spins and 6 Scatters Award = 25 Free Spins. Every 5th win in the bonus game triggers ‘Grand Synced Respin’ on an increasing number of reels, from 2 up to a max of 5 reels. The 1st Grand Synced Respin expands reel 4 with one row before the Synced Respin. The 2nd expands reels 4 and 5. All subsequent Grand Synced Respins expand reels 4 – 6.
Overall, I think this slot is missing out with the visual aspects but makes up for this within the features. With a max win capped at 10,000x, exciting features to keep this game entertaining. Be sure to try this slot out for yourself. Also, be sure to check out our exclusive casino offers.
