Monday, January 7th, 2019 by LuckyMobileSlots

Update 21/02/2019: You can now play the Golden Grimoire slot at Casumo casino online or mobile and experience what this new NetEnt game has to offer.

On the 21st of February 2019 NetEnt casinos will have a new addition to the pack: the Epic Golden Grimoire slot online. Here's what you need to know.

For one, we call it epic not because we’ve played it and can say for sure that it’s epic. But more because of the video we have to show you.

That’s right. NetEnt has released a YouTuve video of the gameplay of this Golden Grimoire mobile slot.

Why is that different from any other thousands of casino game previews they’ve released in the past? Didn’t we get one for Strolling Staxx coming in January?

Yeap. But none of them got an epic voice guy to talk you through what you’ll be getting.

What we know about this Golden Grimoire slot:

We know plenty, thanks to a little two and a half minute video.

If you don’t have a chance to watch it now, come back and watch it later. Trust us.

Because NetEntertainment has narrated this video, telling you every feature, only they’ve used the same guy who does 80s movie trailers.

“Mystery and Magic Await You! In the… Golden Grimoire! The Enigmatic Brand New NetEnt Slot!” He says with what he thinks is an enigmatic voice.

And to be honest, the guy is good! He really is. It caught our attention, didn’t it? And it’s certainly more fun to watch than just another reel of wins and features, with no explanations to what you are watching.

Quick stats about new NetEnt video slot:

We don’t yet know as much about this casino game as we do others, but as we get more information we will update this page, we promise you that.

However, what we have managed to get out of this video is that:

  • Golden Grimoire is a 5-reel, 4-row, 20-fixed lines video slot
  • It has wilds, scatters and a mystery symbols
  • Mystery Symbol transformation can spread across the reels and transform other symbols
  • The wilds only appear on a mystery symbol transformation
  • 3 scatters give you 8 free spins with the mystery symbols staying sticky on screen at all time
  • Likely to have an RTP of over 96% (to be confirmed, but no NetEnt slot has less)
  • Likely to have a minimum bet of 0.20 a spin, up to at least 100 if not 200 a spin (again to be confirmed)

So. Let’s break down what we think this all means because speculation is all part of the fun.

What is this slot theme all about?

Grimoire, to be precise, is a French word which over the years has basically come to mean a book of magic.

There have been so many famous Grimoire books, that it has come to mean pretty much anything to do with sorcerers, demons, angels and the supernatural.

So NetEntertainment has cleverly taken that concept and brought you straight into the workshop of an alchemist as he plays around with the basic elements to create riches.

Because the idea of turning lead into gold is so old, we all know instinctively what we are looking at. Except in this Golden Grimoire slot, the transformation is a little more complex.

Do we think the Golden Grimoire slot will be any good?

So we are sold on the theme, but NetEnt games have good themes.

Even with the most mediocre of their games, like the Wild O Tron 3000, you get flashy animations and a true sci-fi feel.

The question is whether the slot features will captivate us enough to want to stick around to see if these symbols will turn to gold.

And personally, we are intrigued. Mostly because this looks like a fairly simple game with one feature that will make or break this Golden Grimoire mobile game.

The magical transformation of symbols that spread or stick around

Two things struck us as we were watching the YouTube NetEnt video.

The first is watching those mystery symbols transform. Not, in itself, that unique. Mystery symbols are found in a million games, from the Ark of Mystery slot by Quickspin to the Donuts slot to Fortunium by Microgaming… every studio has one.

What really stood out was the way the mystery symbols spread across the reels to cover one or more or all reels.

It was the same feeling we get when we watch those reels line up with the same symbol in the Twin Spin slot. It’s exciting.

But more importantly during the free spins, the mystery symbols stick around for every spin.

It’s only 8 spins, but if you get stacks and stacks of mystery symbols, and they all show up the same symbol or spread… now that could be magical.

Where it could all go wrong

We don’t know how much you will be able to win. The biggest win of the game in the video was around 172 times your bet.

But the good thing about NetEnt videos (or bad depending on how you view it) is that they like to show what a typical round might look like.

So instead of showing you the flashiest biggest crazy win, they show you the wins you are likely to get, or more likely to find.

Maybe this game only has wins of 200 times your bet. But we doubt it. Even the low variance Starburst phone game has a 500 times your bet top win.

What should I play whilst I wait for the 21st January

If you are reading this week ahead of time, you might be super excited, right until you read the release date.

Thankfully there are many interesting Netent mobile casinos with lots of different games to play till then.

Maybe Videoslots is for you, as they release a new game a day and you can spin the wheel of luck as to whether you get a good or bad game.

Personally, we love Guts casino who have all the big hit games as they come out, and a brand new shiny platform, and plenty of bonuses and offers to keep you busy until then.

Let’s not forget that Turn Your Fortune slot was released at the beginning of this year and deserves a few spins.
