Grizzly Gold

Grizzly Gold

Grizzly Gold is one of several bear-themed slots UK players will find on the net. Developed by Blueprint Gaming and launched in April 2019, this slot stands out for its fitting and realistic animal imagery, its thousand-plus paylines, and its relatively cheap wagering range. In terms of features, though, most of the gameplay is bare-bones stuff which players will have seen before in other titles.

Despite having 1,024 paylines spread across its reels, the Grizzly Gold slot only features 5 reels. Naturally, Grizzly Gold players are not going to be able to adjust the number of lines on the reels of the game. Fortunately, they won’t need to, as wagers are considerably cheap. Stakes range from 20p a spin up to no more than £20 a game. With a little luck, players shouldn’t find it too much of a challenge to snap up wins in this release, which has a return to player rate of 96%. 

Special Features

Bears aren’t the only animals to appear on the reels of this slot. Caribou, cats, wolves and more also spring into life in the game. However, bears take centre stage as the wilds and bonus symbols. Wild symbols appear as bear paw prints, and these golden emblems can substitute for all icons barring the bonus bear scatter. Players who land winning combinations which consist of two or even three wilds can expect to snap up 2x and 3x multipliers on their winnings, respectively.

The bear bonus scatter is responsible for trigger a free spin bonus. Players are going to need at least three of them to appear on the reels to trigger the round. However, the more bear bonus symbols appear, the higher the number of free games you will start the bonus feature with.

Players who don’t want to go the long way around to triggering the feature can buy it instead. Doing so will not be cheap. It costs up to 40x to buy the bonus. The number of free games you will receive is randomly determined and ranges from 8 to 20 free games.

Bonus Features

Players can kick off the free spins round with 8, 15 or 20 free games, depending on whether they acquired, 3, 4 or 5 scatters in the base game. In the feature, players can snap up an additional 5, 8, 15 or 20 free spins for every 2, 3, 4 or 5 respective scatters they land on the reels during a turn. Moreover, wild symbols can boost wins by considerably larger multipliers than they did in the base game. It is possible (although very challenging) to land multipliers worth up to 27x in this feature.

Overview

Underneath the superb imagery and catchy theme, Grizzly Gold is something of a generic video slot. Players will undoubtedly appreciate the multipliers which come into play in the game. They are particularly prosperous during the free games feature. However, in many other regards, this casino game is standard fare for Blueprint Gaming.
