Graphics and Theme
The graphics and overall look and feel of the game is pretty basic and somewhat generic. It lacks something unique that would make this game stand out amongst a crowd. The backdrop to the reels is a dense row of shiny crystals that hang down from the ceiling. It looks a bit like an enormous Vegas casino chandelier. The reels themselves are encased in a golden border and are incredibly colourful thanks to the symbols.
While the graphics might not be up to much, the backing soundtrack is fantastic. You’ll hear a funky jazz tune blear out of your speakers. It’s both relaxing and stimulating. It will help you to stay concentrated as you hit spin to try and land the big combinations. I’ll be surprised if your shoulders aren’t rocking along with the groovy tune!
The Grand Galore Symbols
The low paying symbols in the game include the playing card symbols J, Q, K, and A. Six of a kind aces pays out a maximum of £40. The middle tier of symbols are made up of four coloured precious gems. There is a blue, green, pink, and red gem, with the red gem being the most valuable, paying out a maximum of £90 for six. Finally, the highest paying symbol in the game is the golden cat which pay-outs £500 for six of a kind.
There is also a wild symbol and a bonus symbol.
Expanding reel respin
This exciting feature can transform the 4096 ways to win, into 1 million ways to win if you get lucky. The expanding reel respin feature works by adding a reel position to every reel featured in a winning combination. Then, both the winning symbols and the added reel positions respin, giving you another chance to win cash prizes. A reel can expand up to a maximum of 10 rows.
During this feature, all symbols that respin on the same reel will show the same symbol when they land. This boosts your chances of making winning combos even further.
The Grand Galore free spins
To trigger the free spins round, you will need to land three or more diamond bonus scatter symbols. The more symbols you land, the more free spins you get:
- Three bonus symbols = 10 spins
- Four bonus symbols = 15 spins
- Five bonus symbols = 20 spins
- Six bonus symbols = 25 spins
On every fifth win during the free spins game, the grand synced respin feature will be triggered. A synced respin is where two to five reels join together for the respin and show the same symbol when they stop. The grand synced respin does the same, but also expands one of the reels just before the respin to give you more chances to win. Each time you trigger this feature, an additional reel will expand, up to a maximum of five.
Game How to Play
The first thing you’ll need to do is select your betting value which starts from as little as £0.20 per spin and reaches a maximum of £100 per spin. Elk Studios has also developed betting strategies that automatically change your betting value according to the strategy you select. They include options to bet a percentage of your balance, raise your bet after losses, raise your bet after every win, or you can select no strategy and just bet the same value each time. The aim of the game is to land winning combos across the 4×6 grid. You need to land three or more symbols on consecutive reels to win cash prizes. You can win up to a maximum of 10,000x your stake which is achieved through unlocking the grand synced respins during the free spin bonus round.
