Review of the Golden Grimoire

Theme and plot of the story

A grimoire is a book of spells and incantations that is widely employed by witches in the practice of their arts and by alchemists in their efforts to transform lead into gold in their quest for money.

It is up to Lady Luck whether you will end up with more lead or gold in your pocket at the end of Golden Grimoire, but it is an intriguing trip nevertheless. There is a giant circular window in the backdrop that looks up at a night sky that is caged in by bricks, on which arcane symbols dance in blue light.

Brass insects, suits of cards, and valuable stones are used to decorate the reels, which are adorned with jewelry produced from them. It is a spooky theme and a fun world to get lost in.

Graphics, sounds, and animations are all included.

The visuals are stunning, and NetEnt’s art team has done an amazing job of putting together something that has a cohesive sense of theme while also being visually appealing.

A standout feature of the game is the animations, which include victory lines drawn out in shimmering dust and a satisfying clunk when the reels are spun to the right.

The mood is provided with eerie ambient music, and each unique sign and button has its own sound effect, which contributes to the overall eerie atmosphere of the game.


A variety of unique symbols and bonuses add to the enjoyment of the game’s gameplay, which is also enjoyable (details in the section below).

This modification prevents the straightforward four-row, five-reel, forty-win-line standard game from being too monotonous, and it is very well-paced and balanced overall.

Wilds, bonuses, and free spins are all included in this game.

The Mystery Symbol is the most important special symbol in Golden Grimoire. This symbol may appear on reels three through five and will convert into either a Wild symbol or one of the medium or low value symbols depending on where it appears. In a particular round, all Mystery symbols will be transformed into the same symbol.

If the transformation of a Mystery symbol results in a symbol that is identical to the leftmost symbol in that row, then all of the symbols between the two will be transformed into that symbol. When a Wild sign appears, it transforms any symbols to the left of it into Wilds as well, regardless of whatever symbol is on the left.

The Wild symbol may only appear as a consequence of a Mystery Symbol transformation, and it can be used to substitute for all other symbols except the Scatter symbol.

The Free Spins bonus is triggered by the Scatter symbol, which appears on the reels. If you manage to land three Scatter symbols on the reels, you will be awarded eight free spins, which will be accompanied by the Sticky Mystery Symbol.

Sticky Mystery Symbol: The Sticky Mystery Symbol performs the same functions as the Mystery symbol, but it stays on the reels for all consecutive free spins awarded during the bonus round. Because it resets with each spin, it will evolve into something entirely different with each new free spin.

Bet sizes, return on investment (RTI), and variance

The return to player for this game is an impressive 96.44 percent, which is a significant increase above our approximate standard of 96 percent.

The range of wagers available on the site we tested ranged from the lowest stake of $/£/€0.20 per spin up to a maximum bet of $/£/€200.00 per spin, which should be plenty to accommodate players with a variety of bankroll levels, to say the least.

The volatility of this game ranges from Low to Moderate to High. We want the largest possible variance in the games we suggest since they are the ones that best fit our preferred tactics. As a result, this is not good enough to earn our endorsement.


There is a lot to like about Golden Grimoire, starting with its stunning (and fanciful) aesthetics, continuing with its music, and ending with the creative concept of the Mystery sign. It even has a respectable return on investment as well as great playability.

However, since the volatility is low to medium, it cannot be used in conjunction with our favorite trading tactics.

For those who like low-volatility slots, or who are unconcerned with the topic of volatility entirely, you should feel confident in giving this game a go.
