Quickspin’s Golden Glyph Slot Review

The Golden Glyph slot is powered by Quickspin and is played on a 7 by 7 grid from 20p to £100 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices. With an ancient Egyptian theme, it comes with a tumbles for consecutive wins, Power Wilds, Power-Ups, free spins and an increasing multiplier from the Golden Glyph wild for wins of 13,185 times stake per free spin. An epic in the making from Quickspin.

Channel your inner Indiana Jones in ancient Egypt

The Golden Glyph online slot takes you to ancient Egypt as you get to channel your inner Indiana Jones. Set in the land of the Pharaohs, the 7 by 7 grid is set in the sky above the clouds – it all looks rather majestic. Symbols on the grid include low value hieroglyphs as well as Cleopatra, Tutankhamen and the falcon god Horus. The latter will reward you with a whopping 250 times your stake for 15 or more on the grid! There’s also a W symbol which is the wild symbol and replaces all normal symbols mentioned above.

Cluster pays mechanic

Golden Glyph is a cluster pays slot meaning you need to get 5 or more matching symbols in adjacent positions (or in a cluster) to form a winning combination. Horus is the highest value symbol.

Tumble Mechanics feature

As found in other grid slots, Golden Glyph comes with a Tumble Mechanics feature – any symbols that part of a winning cluster will be removed from the grid with the vacated spaces filed with new symbols that fall from above. This can lead to new winning combinations – the tumbles will continue as long as there is a new winning cluster.

Power Wild feature

Now, there’s a Power Wild feature which comes into play in the base game and Free Spins Bonus feature (more on this below). Once a win has occurred, the cluster is removed and a Power Wild symbol is added to 1 of the vacated/empty positions. This gives you a better chance of forming another winning cluster.

Power-Up feature

Furthermore, an extra Power-Up is triggered for each Power Wild that is removed from the grid. There are 4 Power-Ups to benefit from in the Power-Up feature. Prior to each spin, 5 Power-Ups are selected randomly to appear in the golden wheel which appears to the side of the grid.

When you get a win with a Power Wild, the Power-Ups are charged until the Free Spins Power-Up is activated or a tumble gives you a no win. Here’s what the various Power-Ups offer you:

  • Golden Scarab Power-Up: the Golden Scarab spreads between 4 and 10 randomly placed wild symbols on the reels.
  • Eye of Horus Power-Up: the Eye of Horus removes all instances of 1 low value symbol from the grid as well as giving you a 20th of your stake for each symbol removed.
  • Blaze of Fire Power-Up: the Blaze of Fire burns normal symbols that are in the way. Positioned randomly on the grid, each symbol removed will give you a 20th of your stake. The Blaze of Fire cannot remove the wild, power wild and Golden Glyph wild symbol though.

Free Spins Bonus feature

The Free Spins Bonus feature is triggered by the Free Spins Bonus Power-Up. With 9 free spins awarded, you will receive 3 extra free spins every time it’s triggered once playing the feature (via Power-Ups). On your 1st free spin, a special Golden Glyph wild is randomly added to the grid.

With each free spin, this Golden Glyph wild moves to a random position. It also comes with a multiplier that increases by 1 every time it is part of a winning combination. The multiplier can reach up to 99x which is can result in huge payouts worthy of any pharaoh.

Huge win potential – 13,185 x stake

The Golden Glyph online slot may sound a little complicated but it’s simpler than it reads. It’s all about getting consecutive tumbles which result in Power Wilds and plenty of Power-Ups. The key to winning big is in the Free Spins Bonus feature due to the increasing multiplier from the Golden Glyph wild. Medium variance, Golden Glyph can pay out up to 13,185 times your stake on every free spin!

Beautifully designed and a fantastic first-ever grid slot from Quickspin, the Golden Glyph slot will surely be a huge hit with players who like grid slots and/or ancient Egypt. If you want cluster/grid slots, Play ‘N Go are good are making them – Viking Runecraft is 1 of their finest.
