The Grand Galore slot review (Elk Studios)

The Grand Galore slot review

The literal meaning of "Galore" is that there is "so much that it is almost unbelievable."  Combined with the word "Grand," it can only mean one thing. It has to be incredibly large and unbelievable!  The question is what, but that becomes clear once you play the game.   You start with 4,096 ways to win. But if you're lucky, you can go to the surreal 1 million(!) ways to win.

Grand Galore slot (ELK Studios) – this is where things go incredibly crazy – fast

Yes, in that case, the name Grand Galore makes a lot of sense. Even most Megaways slots do not have as many ways to win!  

If you’re lucky, you can land the top win of 10,000x the bet!

For Elk Studios standards, it’s massive, and only the slot Chi has a higher max win.

In short, if you bet the maximum 100, it is, in theory, possible to win a cool million.

Grand Galore slot – Gameplay and Features

You start with 6 reels each with 4 symbols, and you have 4.096 (4x4x4x4x4x4=4.096) ways to win.  

The highest paying symbol is a Golden cat, and a 6-of-a-kind yields a win of 5x. The medium-paying symbols are 4 jewels, and the 4 lower-paying symbols are A, K, Q and J. 

Furthermore, you have Wild symbols (golden letter “W”) and Bonus Scatter symbols (golden letters “BONUS”). 

Expanding reels, Stacked respins, Synched respins

If you get a winning combo, the winning symbols disappear (non-winning symbols remain), just like in the usual Avalanche (Cascading or Tumbling) mechanism.

But what’s new are the expanding reels (the reels where the winning symbols appear) and that a symbol is added to the reels for the following respin. Reels can have up to 10 symbols, giving you up to 1 million ways to win (10x10x10x10x10x10=1 million).

But there is more. With a respin, you are guaranteed to get the same symbols on a reel if the new symbols are adjacent (the stacked respins).

Sometimes it becomes even more lucrative if you get the Synched respin, where the new symbols are identical on multiple (2 to 5) reels. It happens randomly.

Especially with the last feature, things can get really wild!

The free spins

If you spin 3, 4, 5 or 6 Bonus Scatter symbols, you activate 10, 15, 20 or 25 free spins, which van be retriggered.  

The free spins sre played out the same way as in the main game

The good news is that the Synched respins activate more frequently as you trigger these automatically after 5 consecutive wins.  

Payout percentage (RTP)

The payout percentage of Grand Galore is 96%, and that’s just about enough, shall I say?  

The variance (volatility) of Grand Galore is medium to high

Elk Studios rates the Grand Galore an 8 out of 10 for volatility.

Therefore, the variance is medium to high.

Most top wins will be around 500x to 1,000x. Perhaps you may land the top win of 10,000x if you spin a million of times.

Other Elk Studios slots with similar volatility are Diablo Reels, Io and Hidden.

Pros and cons


  • The gameplay is innovative and refreshing.  
  • Potential for hefty wins.


  • .In terms of gameplay, the name is more than appropriate, but in terms of animations and themes, 
  • had hoped for more fireworks rather than your typical, run-of-the-mill, gems. 

So, who’ll like the slot? And who won’t?

Players who love innovative gameplay and who like to take risk will have a feast with The Grand Galore. 

Players who prefer stunning animations combined with an amazing theme, won’t find it here.
