Things are getting a little bit spooky in time for Halloween with Quickspins newest grid format game Ghost Glyph Slot. Can we gain access to the haunted house and get them Free Spins?
And will we emerge out the other end inundated with Ghostly Treasure? The scariest thing that could possibly happen would be a 1x win, but despite this real threat of unimaginable horror, we’re going in.
Swedish developer Quickspin are on a quest to make the most thrilling gambling experience ever, and make New Slots that they themselves, would want to play with that by gamers, for gamers attitude.
Ghost of Glyph hopes to secure its place among a portfolio of games that checks all the boxes, and lives up to that quality we’ve come to know and love from Quickspin games.
Ghost Glyph uses a spooky atmosphere within the courtyard of a haunted house as their setting for this game…But it’s spooky in the loosest sense of the word, with more fun and cartoony kind of illustrations.
The music fits the theme well with a kind of eerie and mysterious sound, but is still fun at the same time.
In usual Quickspin fashion, there’s a bet for everyone who wants to enjoy Ghost Glyph. The lowest option available is 0.20, with the highest at 100.
There’s also numerous different options in between, so players of every kind can choose one to suit them.
There are 7 regular symbols in the game, with the Diamond, Red Gem and Green Gem as the highest paying symbols. Low paying symbols are represented as coins with a Spider Web, Skull, Moon and Star, and all pay equally.
There’s also a Wild which substitutes for all symbols except the Ghost Glyph.
Ghost Glyph is a cluster pays slot, and 5 or more of the same symbols are needed to form a win. The game is set upon a 7×7 grid, so there’s plenty of chances to hit on these symbols.
Ghost Glyph keeps the base game interesting, with some captivating features.
Any Symbols that are part of a winning cluster will be removed. The empty positions will be filled with symbols falling from above, creating more chances to hit consecutive wins.
The Ghost Glyph will spawn inside a winning cluster every turn. This will activate one of the Ghost Urns if connected to a win.
Ghost Urns are activated by connecting the Ghost Glyph to a win as mentioned previously. There are 4 different types of Ghost Urns
The Ghost Urns will always randomly shuffle between spins, so there’s no set order you can expect the Urn features to appear in, with the exception of course that the Blue Urn is always last as it triggers the Casino Bonus game.
Within the free spins, the aim will be to increase the gauge of the Paranormality meter. This is achieved by tumble sequences, with 8 tumbles needed to fill up the gauge completely. A full meter will level up the Massive Wild feature.
This is activated at the end of the Free Spins if the Paranormality Meter is at level 1 or higher.
Paranormality levels will determine the type of Massive Wil you get.
Needless to say, you want that level 3 at least, if not more. A full level 22 Colossal Wild has some serious potential as it moves around the grid, bagging you them nice hits.
This slot is a lot of fun, and has that feel-good feeling despite its eerie setting. The game has been designed well and includes lots of interesting features within the base game and the bonus to keep it interesting.
Theoretically, you can expect a decent proportion of your bets as winnings with an RTP of 96.18%, with high volatility meaning you’ll win less often, but with a chance at winning big when you do hit.
Unfortunately, Ghost Glyph features a meagre top win of 2,260x. 2000x is hardly anything to scoff at, but it is quite low as far as a top win is concerned.
Bottom line is unless you consider 2,260x exponential, then you won’t want to come to this game for them hall of fame wins. But if it’s a bit of fun you’re after, then why not give it a try?
It may not have all the velocity that some games have, but it has all of the fun, which is what it’s all about.
