Golden Glyph Video Slot Review

Golden Glyph: Demo

We’re off to ancient Egypt again, this time courtesy of Quickspin, who are the developers behind the Golden Glyph video slot. As usual for a Quickspin game, the design in Golden Glyph is top notch. Played on a 7×7 tumbling reels grid, it comes with wilds that deliver special Power Ups. There’s also a free games feature where level ups increase multipliers which can reach 99x with potential payouts of over 13,000 times your bet. Play from between 20p and £100 per spin.

High spec design


As we’ve come to expect from Quickspin the design in Golden Glyph is top class. On the 7×7 grid you’ll see hieroglyph symbols, ancient animal gods, Queens and Pharaohs. It all looks terrific. The top paying Horus will give you 250 times your bet for 15 or more on the grid!

Power Wilds for Power-Ups

Winning combinations are created by landing clusters of matching symbols. Those symbols are removed and new ones drop in and replace them. The tumbles continue as long as a new winner hits – this is called the Tumble Mechanics feature. Then the Power Wild feature is applied – a Power Wild will drop into one of those empty spaces. If a winner then follows, you’ll activate a Power-Up feature.

  • Golden Scarab Power-Up – here you can look forward to seeing between 4 and 10 extra wilds.
  • Eye of Horus Power-Up – all examples of 1 lower value symbol are removed from the reels and a new tumble follows. Each symbol that’s removed pays 1/20 of your current bet.
  • Blaze of Fire Power-Up – a fire rips through the grid, removing all the symbols from one row and one column. A tumble then follows. Again, each symbol that’s removed pays 1/20 of your current bet.

Free spins with multipliers up to 99x

The best potential action comes via the Free Spins Bonus feature which you can activate via the base game or from a Power-Up. Once active, you’ll receive 9 free spins. Look out her for the special Golden Glyph wild which flies around the reels on each free spin.

Power-Ups bring expanding multipliers into play here. These can reach up to 99x. The tumbling reels are in play during the free spins. So too are the Power-Ups which can trigger in the free spins just as in the base game.

Payouts of up to 13,185 x your bet on each free spin

The design in Golden Glyph is just what we’ve come to expect from a Quickspin video slot. The gameplay is a little more complicated than usual. The Power-Ups and free spins can serve up some solid action though, especially the bonus round where payouts can reach an enormous 13,185 times your bet. As far as volatility goes, we’re in the medium range. If you like the Egyptian theme but fancy playing something a little different, then why not take flight with the Golden Glyph.
