Not one to rest on its laurels, NetEnt is always busy releasing great slot after great slot. At the end of last year it gave us a history lesson with its Vikings slot that rampaged onto our reels with epic features and super gameplay, and just recently the Swedish maestroes explored the mystical world of magic with Golden Grimoire. Bases: ticked.

Spells, Shields, Raids And Wins

Golden Grimoire focuses on the fantastical world of magic. There are no wizards with big hats. No broomsticks. No, this five reel, 40 payline slot focuses on the Golden Grimoire of the slot’s title, a giant magical tome. Inside are spells aplenty, which come in the form of Mystery Symbols and Free Spins. Delicately designed gemstones appear as the high paying symbols and work together with the Mystery Symbol to summon up impressive wins. Magical.

But when magic’s a bit too much, we can get back to bloody, roaring realism on NetEnt’s Vikings slot. Based on the hit TV show (which we know is obviously 100% historically accurate) this five reel slot comes with 243 Ways to Win. And then some. A Hotspot feature, Shield Wall Feature, Raid Spins and the chance for the reels to expand to seven reels and 78,125 Ways to Win means we can win up to 10,000 times our stake on every free spin. That’s one heller successful Viking raid!

Many Ways To Conjure Wins

NetEnt gives us many different ways to get hold of wins. Golden Grimoire is less cartoonish than it’s Witchcraft Academy slot, which was very much more Harry Potter, or Fairytale Legends slots series. But neither match the gritty “realism” of Vikings. We can chant our favourite spells or we can go for raids with famous warriors. Each option gives us unique, fun experiences. We just have to decide whether we’re picking up our wands or our axes. Choices, choices.
