Golden Glyph 2 Features
Although the Power Glyph Wild symbol remains at the heart of Golden Glyph 2, Quickspin has devised a set of reel modifiers that can change the course of your play session. These mechanics make use of the game’s re-spins and wild features and when combined with free spins, can result in some of the game’s best wins.
Whenever players land a winning combination, paying symbols remain locked on the reels while the rest of the tiles re-spin once more for the chance to continue your lucky streak. This is where the Power Glyph Wild comes in. The symbol only spawns on re-spins and holds the key to the slot’s reel modifiers.
Regular Wild symbols come in the form of a golden W and step in for any symbols that can complete a winning combination. Additionally, players can also land a Power Glyph Wild during re-spins, which when forming part of a winning combination, triggers a Reel Modifier from the list of options on the bottom bonus reel.
At the bottom of the main board, players find the Reel Modifier bonus reel. Here, players get a total of 7 modifiers per spin. The last modifier is always a Mega Wild Modifier, while the 6 other six are a random combination of both Golden Scarab and Pattern of Horus Modifiers.
- Golden Scarab Modifier: The Golden Scarab flies around the board, awarding between 4 to 11 Wild symbols.
- Pattern of Horus Modifier: Symbols are removed from the board in the shape of a Cross, Ankh, Bird, Snake, Eye or Hourglass, allowing for new symbols to take their place.
- Mega Wild Modifier: Triggered after the first 6 modifiers have already been activated, this mechanic awards a 2×3 Mega Wild symbol.
Players who would rather jump straight into free spins can do so through the Buy Feature. By staking 50x, 150x or 275x players are awarded 1, 2 or 3 Power Glyph Wilds respectively and the initial 7 bonus rounds. Additionally, the RTP is also increased by 96.30%, 96.49% or 96.60% respectively.
Golden Glyph 2 Free Spins and Bonus
3 Pyramid Scatter symbols award players with 7 Free Spins. Upon entering the bonus round, players are immediately rewarded with a Power Glyph Wild, which remains active for the duration of free spins. The symbol moves to a new location on every spin and increases its progressive multiplier by +1 with every win it forms part of. If players manage to get to the 7th reel modifier in free spins, they will be awarded with yet another Power Glyph Wild. A total of 4 can be in play at any given time. Furthermore, players can increase their free spin tally by another 5 rounds by landing another set of 3 Scatter symbols.
