Brace for an encounter with the fearsome beast of the American wilderness on the slot from Blueprint. This edition of Grizzly Gold includes the Grizzly Bet bonus buy option which will give you direct access to the free spins round at a fixed cost. Other than wild substitutions, it is the only bonus feature on this slot but it packs quite a punch as the wilds will appear with multipliers that can lead to wins of up to 10,000 times your bet for an entire bonus round.
Grizzy Gold is a video slot with a bonus buy feature in a 5×4 format with 1,024 ways to win. Pays are awarded for two to five matching symbols on adjacent reels from left to right only. Venture into the world of the grizzly bear on desktop or mobile from 0.20 to 20 credits per spin. The game has medium to high volatility with an RTP of 96%, increasing to 96.58% when you use the Grizzly Bet option.
A forest scene from the North-American wilderness is in the background of a rather simple game window which in itself is dominated by the typical animals that you will come across should you dare to go on a hike in grizzly bear territory. A serene acoustic orchestra piece is dramatically interrupted by the grizzly’s roar when he lands on the reels.
All pay symbols except scatters can appear stacked up to three symbols high. They start at the low end with the card royals from 10 through to A, awarding 1.25x to 1.75x your stake for a single five of a kind. The premium symbols are in ascending order owls, lynx, moose, wolfs and grizzly bears. Hit five across the reels to win 1.875x to 3.125x your bet.
A grizzly paw on a red tile is the wild symbol, appearing on reels two, three and four only and substituting for all regular pay symbols while a grizzly bear marked with “Bonus” acts as the scatter.
There is really just one bonus feature on this game and it is your choice to either wait for an organic trigger when three, four or five scatters land on a spin or you can use the Grizzly Bet bonus buy feature to gain instant access to the free spins round. Buying the feature will cost you a one-time bet of 40x your total stake which will start a spin with a guarantee that minimum three scatters will hit. Either way, three, four or five scatters will trigger 8, 15 and 20 free spins respectively, plus you will be awarded a coin win of 2x, 10x and 20x your bet. Any two to five scatters landing on a free spin will retrigger 5 to 20 free spins, no limits.
During the feature, the wild symbols appear as multiplier wilds, carrying either an x2 or an x3 win multiplier. All multiplier in view on a free spin will be multiplied by each other, which can lead to a maximum win multiplier of x27. However, the multiplier will be awarded only if the wild is part of a winning combo.
Well, the bonus buy feature is becoming the norm lately and it is bound to find people on both sides. One is welcoming it while the other is strictly opposing it. Personally, I think it is a good addition as it allows a quick punt on the go but it should be used with caution since there is no guarantee that the bought feature will pay enough to cover the cost. You will be also benefiting from a slightly higher RTP when using the Grizzly Bet which means in the long run the game will return more in wins than in normal play mode.
