Grand Spinn Game Review
Who says fruit machines have to be basic? The good old fruity may have a reputation for being a bit simplistic, but when simplicity looks this good how can you complain? Grand Spinn harks back to the gilded age with its Art Deco inspired style, combining a 1920s aesthetic with plush red and glittering gold to create a slot that really looks the business, and with a few surprising features to match. This is high volatility fun that is sure to amaze, but is this a blast from the past or is it stuck in time? Let’s take a look in our Grand Spinn review.
We’ve mentioned the looks already, but they’re so good that they’re worth a closer view. There’s an almost steampunk aesthetic to this game, as if you’re playing on a fancy brass slot machine, with the brass lens which hovers over the reels indicating the active payline and the gilded metal that lines the reels. The symbols themselves look great too, and you won’t be surprised to learn that this fruit machine comes with all the fruity symbols you’d expect: Watermelons, cherries, plums, oranges and lucky 7s all grace the reels. These are posh versions of those symbols though, and each one looks like an oil painting, complete with a golden leaf for each one to sit on. Cute animations and a jazzy soundtrack serve to round off a high quality package that is a pleasure to play.
This game plays a little differently to others on the market, and for a start it comes with just one payline. There are three visible rows and three reels, but only one of those rows is active at any one time. This might sound like a disadvantage but for the nudge feature that this game also comes with: Any symbols that match a winning combo and land on the row above will spin individually down into the combo, completing it again and again until no more matching symbols remain in that row. This means that, while individual wins aren’t worth as much as in other slots, you can easily rack up a lot of wins in one spin. You can even land an up arrow above the payline, and when this happens the reel resets to its original position and you get all those same wins over again. On top of this feature you will also see multiplier wilds represented by red diamonds appear in the main game, granting multipliers which stack, so you can grab up to an 8x multiplier in one spin. The lack of paylines and the generous bonuses seem to cancel each other out, because the 96.13% RTP is pretty middling.
One disadvantage of old style fruit machines like this is that there aren’t usually free spins or bonus games, which is also true in the Grand Spinn slot game. However, there is a very lucrative jackpot to aim for instead. Red diamond marked mini, midi and maxi land on the reels, and if you can land three on the reel above the payline then they’ll pay out. You can land them in any combination, but remember that they’ll only pay the lowest value symbol’s worth, so you need to aim for three maxis to get the best payout of 10,000x your stake!
Grand Spinn looks gorgeous with its Art Deco aesthetic and it’s hard to fault its fast and exciting gameplay, even if the mechanics can take a bit of getting used to. The lack of bonus round will be disappointing to some, but you can’t fault the generosity of the jackpot, if you can manage to hit it!
