Golden Glyph 3 Features
Technically, this game has 7 reels that can stretch between 5 and 9 symbols high but it's not what you'd class as a standard set of reels. We've inserted this into the grid slot category as it produces Cluster Pays with 5+ matching symbols creating a win anywhere on the grid as long as they are touching horizontally or vertically. The biggest payers are the picture symbols with Horus, Tutankhamun and Cleopatra producing some pretty decent payouts too.
Other Egyptian symbols make up the lowest payers with a small bowl, water, reeds, eyes, ankh and cobras being in that group.
Whenever you are lucky enough to form a winning combo, those symbols will disappear and the familiar Power Glyph turns up to fill one of those spaces. Other regular symbols will take up position in the other spaces.
You now need to hit another win using the Power Glyph and continue the sequence in order for a power-up to be triggered. You’ll see the selection of power-ups to the left of the screen. What you might get is a selection of modifiers that can enhance your wins.
Up first is the Gigantic Wild and this probably needs no introduction. It is an entire stacked reel of Wild symbols. You might even get a Storm of Wilds—much like the locust—with up to 4 symbols being replaced by Wild symbols. A Destruction modifier can turn lower-paying symbols into a winning tumble, while the Transformation modifier grabs a random symbol and all instances of this are turned into one and the same.
The final power-up is the Free Spins icon and this is the only way you will grab free plays throughout your Egyptian adventure. You get 6 free spins that can be retriggered each time a Golden Glyph Multiplier gets doubled.
The Golden Glyph is an upgrade to the standard Power Glyph and is there throughout the Free Spins Bonus—it also begins with a multiplier of x2. If it is involved in a win, then the multiplier is applied. Its value will also double when the final power-up is achieved and +2 free spins are awarded. Much like the standard glyph, these symbols act as Wilds throughout the bonus.
