The Grand Slot Overview
The Grand slot is not the typical Quickspin slot, but we always welcome innovation and exploration of new directions. It was launched across all casinos on March 12th 2019, and it comes with a diamond-shaped reel setup and Arc Deco style graphics. We like the retro vibe this game gives off, and you can benefit from 3 different random bonus features in the base game.
In the free spins feature, which is the main attraction here, all of these 3 random features (nudge, random wilds and synced reels) can combine and give you some very nice payouts. Of course, this is a highly volatile slot, but you can also win up to 2,900 times your stake here. This is quite a decent potential, and you can certainly go for some big wins on this game.
The Grand slot has reels that come in 3 different pairs, so to speak. The synced reel feature will make sure that reel pairs are synced up, and there is also a nudge feature that can help you win where you otherwise wouldn’t have. The random wilds are certainly always useful and remember that the free spins feature can combine all of these reel modifiers to maximize your winnings.
The Grand slot is a very special game if you compare it to most other Quickspin slots, but before we take a closer look at how it all works, we thought you might benefit from a summary of the game’s most relevant technical details and data:
- RTP: 96.58 %
- Variance: High
- Layout: 3-3-4-4-5-5
- Paylines: 214
- Bonus features: Free spins, Nudge, Synced reels and Random wilds
- Bet size: 0.1 to 100
- Max win: 2,900x stake
The RTP of the Grand is 96.58%, which is a bit above the industry average, but nothing extraordinary. Return to Player (RTP) is an indicator of how much you can expect a given slot to pay out in the long run. The opposite number would be the House edge, which in this case is 3.42%.
It’s also worth noting that The Grand is a very volatile slot, and this means that you can expect bigger payouts once in a while. However, to handle the dry spells in between we suggest you set a sensible bet level that fits whatever bankroll you come to the game with. You should also be mentally prepared for the fluctuations on your bankroll.
The Grand has a lot to offer when it comes to bonus features, and here we shall take a closer look at all the fun stuff you can expect when you play this game. The base game comes with 3 different features that will be triggered at random, but you can only trigger one of them at the same time here. These features are as follows:
- Nudge Reels – 1 to 3 reels will be nudged 1 position up or down to maximize your wins
- Random Wilds – 4 to 8 wild symbols will be added randomly to reel 2 to 6
- Synced Reels – 1 to 3 reel pairs will sync with an identical symbol
All of these features are good fun once you benefit from them, and it really helps to keep things interesting in the base game. This is a good thing, cause otherwise you would long too much for the free spins feature, and it would seem like nothing much happened. What’s really cool is that you can combine all of these 3 features together in the free spins mode we’ll discuss next.
The free spins feature is “the Grand” attraction on this game, and you’ll trigger this bonus feature by landing 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters anywhere on the reels on the same spin. This will reward you with 6, 9, 12 or 15 free spins, and as we’ve already mentioned, you can benefit from all 3 random reel modifiers during the free spin rounds.
You need to land 3 bonus symbols while in free spin mode, as this will activate the “Grandomizer” feature. You’ll get between 1 and 3 new free spins, and you’ll also trigger either the nudge feature, the random wilds or the synced reels. You can activate all 3 reel modifiers at the same time, and they will play out one after the other.
Jackpot or max win
You cannot win any progressive or local jackpot on the Grand slot, but it’s still possible to win some decent payouts here. The maximum payout is 2,900 times your stake, and this amounts to £290,000 if you play with maximum stakes. Some would probably prefer an even higher potential given that this is a high volatility slot, and they might have a point.
The Grand Slot on Mobile
Of course, you can play The Grand on both mobile and tablet, and Quickspin always knows how to optimize their games for all platforms. Playing on the go is always fun, and you can win big while other people scroll through social media nonsense. Play The Grand on your iPhone and iPad, or use your Android devices if you prefer that.
The Grand is a breath of fresh air from Quickspin, and we appreciate the fact that they are willing to take a little risk and deviate from their more typical style.
The 3 random bonus features keep the base game somewhat interesting, but it’s still the free spins feature you’ll really want when playing here. Being able to combine all 3 reel modifiers in the free spins bonus game can set you up for some massive payouts. The potential might not be extremely high for a highly volatile slot, but it’s still a decent max win for most people.
