Clint Andersson, Quickspin Producer:
“When we started working on Golden Glyph, we wanted to create a game that felt like a classic puzzle or tile-matching game, like ‘Puyo Puyo’ and ‘Bomberman: Panic Bomber’. We also wanted to combine the characteristics of these types of games with the power-up features of classic RPG games, like ‘Golden Axe’ or ‘Gauntlet’, where you get to collect and use power-ups to perform magic.”

Golden Glyph Features
Players will encounter the Power Wild as it appears in one of the empty spaces following a cluster win. Only one is awarded per tumble, and it comes into sight during both the base game and free spins. If it’s used as part of a winning cluster, then it also activates one of the Power-Ups.
This game features 4 different Power-Up modifiers accessible in the game. At the start of each spin, five Power-Ups are chosen at random and displayed on the golden wheel to the left of the grid. The fifth will always be the Free Spins Power Up. When a winning cluster contains a Power Wild, it charges these Power-Ups in successive order until Free Spins are triggered, or a tumble results in no win. If that happens, all live Power-Ups are activated in the order of the wheel.
Golden Scarab Power Up: distributes 4 – 10 wilds at random over the grid.
Eye of Horus Power Up: picks a low pay symbol and removes all occurrences of it from the gird and triggers an additional tumble. Players receive 1/20th of their stake for each symbol removed.
Blaze of Fire Power Up: is placed at a random position on the board and incinerates all base game pay symbols horizontally and vertically and also triggers another tumble. As before, each symbol removed is worth 1/20th of the stake.
Free Spins Bonus Power Up: awards 9 free spins.
You can’t trigger the Free Spins again, but if the Fee Spins Power Up is activated during this round, then 3 more spins are added to the total every time it does. On the first free spin, the fabled Golden Glyph Wild is placed on the reels in a random space. The game’s namesake is the golden method for obtaining some truly epic wins. Not only does it act like a wild, but it also possesses a progressive multiplier that increases by 1 every time it forms part of a winning cluster. It moves to a new location with every spin, and is capable of reaching the top of the pyramid with a 99x multiplier. In other words, the Golden Glyph Wild is the key to the biggest payouts in the game.

Glyph slot is a wonderful attempt by Quickspin at a dedicated cluster-paying grid game, in fact we can say that Quickspin has made a little masterpiece with Golden Glyph, with jaw dropping animations, sounds and music. The RTP of the game is quite average which is at 96.19%, however the high potential winnings it is a medium-variance game so you can expect regular wins in the base game along with some decent hits off of the Power-Ups sometimes. It’s not tiring to play and not too hard to trigger the free spins Power-Up but it can be quite disappointing on occasion, I suppose to pay for the big-hit potential.
