GrandCasino Slot Adds Dice and Roulette
The GrandCasino slot title, developed by Barcrest, uses only seven ordinary icons and two special symbols in a simple 5X3 reel layout with 20 paylines. It’s an uncomplicated slot, themed around casino action, which pays out smaller prizes relatively often, because of the reduced number of symbols. Players can choose to bet on any number of pay lines from 1 to 20, and stakes per line can be adjusted from 1 coin to 2,500 coins, so it is accessible to all pockets.
The design is kept quite simple; the five black GrandCasino reels are housed in a delicately ornate gold frame, against a backdrop of luxurious scarlet velvet. The game symbols feature intense colours with gold outlines, but are rendered with clean bold lines that stand out against the black. In play it is a typical slot game, with elements of roulette and dice added to fill out the casino theme.
Poker Symbols Predominate
The five Poker symbols 10, J, Q, K and A make up the bulk of the icons, in bright contrasting hues and with the royal symbols adorned with heraldic markers. They all require three of a kind or better; running in succession from the leftmost reel, on one pay line to win a prize. Prizes range from 5X the line bet for three 10s, J’s or Q’s, up to 200X the line bet for five A’s.
The only other two ordinary symbols are the GrandCasino logo and the Wild, designed as rich red-and-gold decals. Both these icons pay 2X the line bet for two matches. For three, four or five of a kind, the logo wins 40X, 200X or 500X the line bet, and the Wild wins 50X, 250X or 10,000X the line bet for the same combos. The Wild also substitutes for all other ordinary symbols to increase the number of winning pay lines possible.
Two Scatter Symbols with Separate Functions
GrandCasino sports two different Scatter symbols, each one related to a casino table game. They split the usual dual functions of a Scatter between them, enhancing each bonus. The first bonus is the Roulette Wheel Bonus. When three Roulette Wheel Scatters come up anywhere on the reels, the bonus is activated.
The player is shown a new screen, containing a roulette wheel marked with various multipliers and more roulette wheel symbols. The wheel spins, and whatever multiplier it ends on is applied to the player’s total bet for the spin, which is then awarded as a prize. If the wheel stops on the roulette wheel icon, the multipliers on the wheel all increase, and the player gets another spin.
Dice Scatter Triggers Free Games
The dice icon, the other Scatter, also triggers a bonus, but it isn’t related to dice in the way the roulette bonus is. Three Dice Scatters in any position pays the player a bonus of 2X the total stake, and activates a free spins round.
This consists of 10 free spins on the same reels, at the same bet settings. Another three Dice Scatters during the free spins round will re-trigger an extra round of 10 free spins, and repeat the bonus of 2X the stake. Free spins can be retriggered indefinitely, for a maximum of 999.
