The Grand will aim to offer players a mix of Art Deco style graphics and some modern features which will make the action even more interesting. This Quickspin release also offers more reels than the majority of modern slots, and the look is mostly one that’s interesting, though compared with other games from this developer there is also some room for improvement.
They came up with a 6-reel setup, which has 3-3-4-4-5-5 symbols on them, as well as 214 bet ways. It’s going to offer synced reels, wilds and nudges, as well as free spins and scatters, so overall I felt like there was more than enough variety, feature wise. This slot will pay up to 8x the stake per line, so over 1,700x the stake should be available to be paid out in a single spin.
Betting and Prizes
As with plenty of other slot machines these days, you just select a total amount, and it will cover all the potential winning combinations/lines. You get to use 10 coins here, with a bet value of $0.10 to $100, and in exchange you receive access to 214 lines.
With a combo of six Green Gems formed, the game will pay 8x the stake, so up to $800. Given the number of lines available, you can look forward to rewards as high as 1,712x the stake, which is not that bad for a slot machine.
The Grand Slot Features
A good start to the game, the random features will come at any point as you play through it. Three are available in total, ranging from the Synced Reels (identical symbols can be shown in each of the three pairs of reels, helping you get wins on a lot of lines at a time), to Random Wilds (adds 4-8 wild symbols in random positions) and Nudge Reels (nudges reels either down or up, 1 to 3 columns being affected, to improve wins).
More regular features have been introduced as well, and the free spins are the clearest example of this. You need at least 3 of its scatter symbols, and as many as 6, to win 6 to 15 free spins. Each free spin can benefit from one of the three random features that I mentioned above. There is even the possibility to have 2-3 features active at the same time, for some extra juicy potential.
Another symbol to look forward to, the Bonus icon from the columns 3, 4 and 5, can give you access to Grandomizer, a feature which can unlock the random features for 1 to 3 free spins.
Wilds, when they do appear, will be acting as substitutes, which means that the odds of creating new wins are higher when they’re present.
Theme & Design
The Grand’s theme is inspired by the 20s and the glamorous side of that era. The Art Deco style always seems to turn out looking good, when a developer implements it, and The Grand’s design demonstrates this once again. Even with badly chosen symbols, as the slot uses various logos and card suits for the most part, it’s still looking pretty good overall. The look is not a standard one, and the 6 reels which come in 3 different sizes do have an influence on that.
The Grand’s capable of surprising you, particularly if you’re searching for a unique experience from a slot machine, not necessarily a great story.
