Audio, Visual & Symbols
The developers have managed to get a perfect combination when it comes to the visual representation and accompanying soundtrack. The reels are set amidst a woodland backdrop which is complete with a log cabin and totem pole. In order to offer the 432 ways to win the slot takes a reel formula set in4x3x3x3x4 row formation. When it comes to the symbol’s players can expect to see the usual low value playing card symbols ranging from 10 to Ace and these are then followed by various sets of mushrooms, berries and wild animals.
The most valuable symbol is the moose and landing three, four or five awards players with 2.5, 10 or 25 times the stake respectively. Wilds The wilds in Giant Grizzly are really at the heart of the action and players will soon realise that the middle three reels can be highlighted and landing an expanding Grizzly bear wild beneath the highlighted are and the entire reel will then become wild. If luck is on your side and you land wilds on adjacent highlighted reels will see even bigger expanding wilds take over your game screen.
These wilds have the capacity to become 1x3, 2×2, 2×3 or 3×3 in size and believe me they can dish out some substantial winnings. This is not all a variety of the standard game symbols also come with a cash amount, and players that get lucky and land an action wild behind their highlighted reel will collect all of the additional cash prizes that belong to the different symbols.
The scatter symbol in Giant Grizzly is depicted by the paw print and once you land the free game feature if you land 3, 4 or 5 the rewards are 5, 10 or 15 free spins respectively. The free spins are played out using an entirely separate set of cascading reels, where the win symbols disappear, and new symbols then drop into their place which then gives you an extra chance to land some wins.
These cascade are continuous only stopping when there are no more wins landed. Rampaging Wilds You will soon notice that there are no wilds present in the free spins feature, however all is not lost as there are Rampage wilds instead. The rampage wilds provide the extras that the two base game wilds provide when they have appeared on the highlighted reels. During this feature if you get lucky and land three or more scatters the reels will retriggered and this can happen up to three times in a row which gives the lucky player the potential to land an additional 60 free spins in total.
Although the gameplay is different in Giant Grizzly in so much as the middle highlighted reels, the wild extras can give some great rewards when they are landed. When I played the slot though I found that they were rather hard to achieve, even when I was in the free spin feature. Having said this the chance to win up to 10,800 times my stake on every spin and free spin certainly inspired me to keep on trying. The visual and sounds are outstanding and if you like the idea of being out in the wild then Giant Grizzly could really be the game for you. However, if you prefer the idea of playing with some more volatile bears Grizzly Gold from Blueprint Gaming could just be the slot for you.
