Golden Glyph 2 Review
The original Golden Glyph released in 2020 to moderate success due to the refreshing nature of the slot. The developers, Quickspin, cleverly decided to use the Cluster Pays mechanic and apply it to the Egyptian genre. They saw the success and decided to release a sequel with even more exciting features.
Golden Glyph 2 is a medium to high volatility slot that plays on a grid of 7 x 7 with even more features. The Power-Up feature returns along with the free spins bonus and an added Buy Feature.
Now, the original slot had beautiful visuals that literally couldn't be measured as they set the slot against the backdrop of the Nile. For some strange reason, the developers decided to set the slot against a traditional backdrop in the desert with a temple in the distance. Honestly, it's nothing special and a huge downgrade after the visuals from the original.
The reels and the symbols are almost identical without any changes. That's not to say that the symbols don't look great but it feels a little lazy on their part.
Thankfully, the music is great and fits in well with the adventure vibe they are giving off. It's similar to the original slot music but with added notes to make it a little more intense.
Golden Glyph 2 uses the Cluster Pays mechanic which means that you have to match at least 5 symbols together for a win - so if you've played the first, then you'll easily pick this up.
Strangely, all the menus are to the right of the reels which is odd for a Quickspin slot - but they are easy enough to find. The spin button is centred with the autospin and bet level just underneath.
Golden Glyph 2 is a medium to high volatility slot with a decent RTP of 96.06% - which is good for an online slot. You could win up to 26,800x your stake through this, as opposed to the original that only went up to 13,185x your stake. These wins could be found throughout the free spins with multipliers.
The original slot was entertaining enough, but this one adds to it in so many more ways. Not only do you have a bigger payout, but you even have more features and a better design to keep you engaged.
Perhaps, the strongest point for Golden Glyph 2 has to be the Cluster Pays mechanics mixed with the visuals to create something that is so satisfying to watch. If you loved the original, then you should definitely check out this slot!
