The Grand Galore Slot Free Play
How To Play It
Like with every other ELK slot before it, the game’s bets will use 100 coins, with a total value between $0.10 and $100. Betting strategies can be selected, from a couple of predetermined options given by the developer. This will change the wager, depending on how much you’re winning or losing.
It’s a game with a lot of different potential combinations, since there are 4096 ways to win available on its 6 reels. That can change though, and as many as 1,000,000 ways can be unlocked eventually.
The big feature in The Grand Galore comes through its reel expansion system. The reels are getting a boost each time that there is a win that involves them. You get one new row on those reels, and additional ways to win. Up to 10 rows can be available in total, and since that can happen on 6 reels, you could go from 4096 to 1,000,000 ways to win.
At the same time, as you’re getting those expanding reels, the game also triggerins respins, where the new positions and the winning symbols will change. This can lead to additional reel expansions, if new wins occur. If there are positions which respin, and they’re next to each other on the same reel, they will always show the same symbols, so you’re guaranteed to get stacked symbols there.
While going through re-spins, there is a chance for up to 5 neighboring reels to sync up, though this is completely random. All synced reels will offer the same symbols, in the positions that are involved in the respin.
You get a couple of common features as well, and the W wild is one of them. This one, you get to use as a substitute for all types of regular symbols.
The other one is the Bonus Diamond, a scatter which you use to trigger 10 to 25 free spins, if it lands on 3 to 6 reels. For every 5 wins obtained in this mode, you get a Grand Synced Respin, on 2 to 5 reels. The more times this happens, the bigger the game area as well, as the reels will expand.
The payouts of The Grand Galore are as impressive as the game. Up to $1,000,000 can be paid, which would be a 10,000x return. I’m quite satisfied with that potential, especially as the RTP is also at 96%.
The Grand Galore is an impressive release from ELK Studios, a slot machine that introduces some new and exciting mechanics, adds huge top payouts, and it always keeps things fresh with the help of its expanding reels.
