Where to play

Design and Symbols

There’s some nice artwork on display here. The backdrop depicts a tranquil, late autumnal forest scene with bare branches dappled in the orange glow of the setting sun. The game board takes centre stage with the reels encased in a polished wood frame.

The soundtrack completes the rather genteel surrounds with a zen-like combo of strings and piano runs. Only the slightly eerie occasional howl in the distance points at something a little more sinister.

The low value symbols are represented by the standard 9-A Royals. The remainder of the symbols each depict a North American animal. In order of value from low to high they are; the owl, the lynx, the moose, the wolf, and the Grizzly Bear.

Good old Grizzly is the highest paying, with 5 adjacent symbols worth 6.25x the stake. The wild is a golden bear paw print, and the scatter is the Grizzly bear with BONUS across the centre.

Special Features

Grizzly Gold only comes with one special feature.

Grizzly Gold Bonus

Grizzly Gold only comes with one special feature, the ‘Grizzly Gold Bonus’, a free spins round with wild multipliers.

As previously mentioned, you can trigger free spins by landing 3 or more scatter symbols or by use of the Grizzly Bet buy-a-bonus button. The former may take a fair few spins as this is a highly volatile game, and the latter will set you back 40x your stake.

Spinning your way into the bonus round will earn you 8, 15, or 20 free spins depending on whether you landed 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols. However, endless free spins are accessible if you manager to keep landing scatters throughout the round. During the bonus round 2, 3, 4, or 5 scatters award an additional 5, 8, 15, or 20 free spins.

Furthermore, during free spins wild bear paws may come with multipliers of 2x or 3x. If more than one multiplier lands on the same spin then they will multiply together to a maximum of 27x.

Our Thoughts on Grizzly Gold

Unlike either the Megaways slots or many of Blueprint’s other slots which carry a multitude of involved features (think Ted, Goonies, Mars Attacks! Etc), Grizzly Gold is about as simple a slot as you’re likely to come across these days. With just one feature even the most novice slots player will get the hang of this one in no time.

Whether that’s a good thing or not boils down to what you expect or want out of a slot. If you’re looking for gimmicks or a slot which mirrors a video game then no doubt you’ll be disappointed. If you’re looking for a no-nonsense slot with great potential then Grizzly Gold may just be your thing. Equally, high variance slot fans could find this a nice little slot to add to their portfolio.

All in all Grizzly Gold is certainly nothing out of the ordinary but I think a necessary and worthy additional to Blueprint’s roster of titles. After all, variety is the spice of life and for every complicated and feature filled slot, it’s good to have a Grizzly Gold to maintain a balance.
