Golden Glyph Slot

The Golden Glyph slot is a superb looking ancient Egyptian-themed game from Quickspin that’s also packed full of features. Played using a 7x7, cascading reels grid, look out for Power Wilds that trigger potential Power Ups when they form part of a winning combination. There’s also a free spins round with multipliers where payouts can top 13,000 times your stake. Play on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.

Quickspin’s 1st grid slot

The action in Golden Glyph takes place on a 7x7 grid. The Tumble Mechanics feature (tumbling reels) is used so symbols are removed following a successful spin and replaced by ones from the above. The tumbles keep on coming as long as a new winning combination is created. On the reels you’ll see an assortment of hieroglyphs, Egyptian deities, queens and Pharaohs. It’s very impressively done.

Power wilds

After a winning cluster is removed, 1 Power Wild will drop into one of the vacated positions. If a winning combination then lands that includes the Power Wild, a Power-Up is awarded. This is called the Power Wild feature. There are 4 Power-Ups to benefit from (the Power-Up feature):

  • Golden Scarab Power-Up - between 4 and 10 wilds are added to random positions on the grid and a new payout calculation is made.
  • Eye of Horus Power-Up - all instances of 1 of the lower value symbols are removed from the grid. A tumble then follows. Each symbol that’s removed pays 1/20 of your current stake.
  • Blaze of Fire Power-Up - a fire rips through the grid, spreading vertically and horizontally and removing all the symbols in their path, followed by a tumble. Each symbol that’s removed pays 1/20 of your current stake.

Free Spins Bonus feature

You can trigger the Free Spins Bonus feature via the Free Spins Bonus Power-Up or via the base game. You can then look forward to 9 free spins. Once again tumbling reels are active. The golden glyph wild flies around the reels on each free spin. In play too, are expanding multipliers which can reach up to 99x! You can trigger the Power-Ups during the free spins too.

Payouts of up to 13,185 x stake

Golden Glyph is rather complicated for a Quickspin slot game. The Power-Ups can spice up the base game though and there are some potentially massive rewards on offer in the Free Spins Bonus feature if you manage to level up and get the multipliers moving. Payouts there can reach 13,185 times your stake! The variance is in the medium range. It’s definitely recommend if you like the ancient Egyptian theme – it’s pretty good for a first attempt at a grid slot.
