The Grand Slot Review – Quickspin

Quickspin have a lot to offer this year, they have many games already lined up and some still in the works. They have slots planned up until June already which is very impressive. Their previous release ‘Divine Dreams‘ didn’t kick off 2019 well for the provider, the slot was well produced but didn’t seem very volatile. I don’t see streamers playing this slot and don’t see any big win videos on youtube which is very disappointing. Their next slot will hopefully have a bigger impact on the community, the new release is called ‘The Grand‘ and is available ‘March 12th‘ on all sites.

The slot has a theme of golden age Hollywood, with art designs of art deco and soothing jazzy soundtrack to enjoy while you spin. The slot has an unusual setup; rows are 3,3,4,4,5,5 high for symbols which include 214 win ways.  The set RTP is 96.58%, and there’s a max win of 2900x which seems low when the slot is rated 4.8/5 for volatility by Quickspin themselves.

The base game has a lot of action with three different features that trigger randomly. The slot visually lacks detail, with a necessary neon lighting background and dull colours behind symbols on reels. There is no real detail which is a shame, but it does run very well.

The Grand Slot Review Base Game Features

  • Synced Reels – Up to 6 reels can be synced; these synched reels will appear as pairs of columns if they are the same height. Each pair will spin in the same symbols. (Like on Queen on Riches)
  •  Random Wilds – 4-8 Random wilds will appear in random positions on the reel set when the spin is nearing the end.
  • Nudge Reels – Up to 3 reels will be nudged; this can uncover free spin and bonus symbols.

The Grand Slot Review Symbols & Paytable

The slot has 9 symbols in total that appear on reels; this includes 4 low paying symbols represented by diamonds, clubs, spades, and hearts. The symbols are basic and have different colours to identify each. There are also two high paying symbols which are a purple gem and green gem symbols. The green gem is the most top symbol rewarding 8x for 6 across all reels. There’s also a wild symbol which normally appears on reels and can be added from the random wild feature. Then finally a free spins scatter and bonus scatter.

The Grand Slot Review Free Spins And Bonus Feature

the grand bonus

By landing 3 or more free spins symbols will award some free spins, this will depend on how many scatters land when triggered. 3 Scatters Award – 6 Free Spins, 4 Scatters Award – 9 Free Spins, 5 Scatters Award – 12 Free Spins and 6 Scatters Award – 15 Free Spins. During spins you can unlock the 3 features from the base game, to open these you need bonus to scatter symbols to land on reels 2,3 and 4. This will trigger the ‘GRANDomizer,’ this feature unlocks one of the base game features and gives 1-3 extra spins.

The unlocked feature will be active on all free spins. You need these features unlocked to have a chance of a big win. The features can be combined on spins when you unlock more than 1. You will need more than three scatters or some quick extra spins to have a chance at unlocking features.

The Grand Slot Review Conclusion

Overall, this slot looks very dull and boring but has some potential. The slot has some excellent base game features to help keep your balance topped up. In the bonus feature, you need to trigger the extra spins to have a chance at a good win, six spins don’t feel like enough with no features to gather a good win. Overall the slot is well made but could be a lot more volatile with the features it has. This slot will be available March 12th on all sites so you can try it out for yourself.
