When we think of the word ‘grimoire’ we immediately think of magic, wizards and giant books filled with spells. Our thoughts are clearly aligned with those of NetEnt, as its new Golden Grimoire slot has all of that in spades (or should that be cauldrons?), spread out across five reels, 40 paylines and a whole lot of gold. Magic!

Casting The Magic Slots Spell

Golden Grimoire screams ancient magic, not the flashy style that Harry Potter and his buds were involved in. We’re talking giant tomes, incantations and gemstones, all combining to create a magical experience. It’s not NetEnt’s first foray into magical realms as the Swedish studio’s release of Witchcraft Academy can testify. This is seen in the various coloured Gemstones which appear as the high paying symbols. The one adorned by a golden spider spins a web of success, giving us five times our stake for five on a payline.

Cranking up the magic is the Mystery Symbol which appears in the form of a Spell Book. When it lands, a random symbol is selected and appears on the third, fourth and fifth reels. After its transformation, it takes its place in a winning combination. The Scatter symbols serve up Free Spins when they appear on the first, third and fifth reels but instead of the Mystery Symbol, we earn a Sticky Mystery symbol that keeps our wins in place.

Conjuring Up A Magic Story

The Golden Grimoire slot is an interesting premise. A giant spell book laid out in front of us, with brightly coloured symbols whizzing by. It’s almost as if they are symbols from a spell book, which come to life as we conjure up wins by reading out a spell. And let’s face it, with the chance to land some serious wins, we’d take this over Harry Potter any day.
