The Grand Slot Debuts at Quickspin CasinosPublished March 12, 2019 by Mike P
The Great Gatsby has inspired the development of The Grand slot from Quickspin. Key features include Synched Reels, Random Wilds, and Nudge Reels.
The Grand is a brand new slot game that is playable at Quickspin casinos from 12 March 2019. Quickspin has openly cited 1925 novel The Great Gatsby as inspiration for the slot, which has utilised an art-deco style that aims to evoke comparisons with the Golden Age of Hollywood and the Roaring ‘20s.
Quickspin has ambitiously played with the interface of The Grand by designing six reels. On reels one and two, there are three rows. Reels three and four have four rows, while the fifth and six reels have five rows where symbols can appear.
The Grand makes use of the six reels by allowing for them to be synchronised. Quickspin has described the Synched Reels feature as allowing for up to six reels to be synched in unison. In addition, the Synched Reels can always appear as exact pairs of columns that are at the same height and spinning the same symbols.
Random Wilds will then provide players with an opportunity for substitute symbols to land anywhere unexpectedly. Quickspin has made it possible for players to gain four to eight wild symbols at random. Notably, however, the random wilds are not able to cover other wilds or free spin symbols.
The Grand also presented the Nudge Reels feature as an option for players to try and shift the reels slightly for their benefit. When using the Nudge Reels feature, it is possible to shift a maximum of three reels, even if the free spins and bonus symbols are showing.
GRANDomizer and Free Spins
One of the Synched Reels, Random Wilds, and Nudge Reels features can be unlocked by reaching the GRANDomizer with three bonus symbols. Meanwhile, there are also free spins symbols, with only three or more needed in order for players to benefit.
