The Grand Galore Slot Review

Released September 2020

The Grand Galore slot can be found at casinos offering Elk Studios software. Elk Studios are a small but well-established casino software developer primarily focusing on the mobile market. At the present time they only offer slots games. Players should be aware that this software provider includes ‘betting strategies’ as an automated feature. These should be avoided. They offer no mathematical gain to the player and increase the risk of large losses in comparison to your bankroll. As a standard Elk Studios do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game paytable. As such we can say that the House Edge of Grand Galore is 4%.

Grand Galore is a 6 reel slot and each reel is 4 symbols high. Instead of paylines you form wins when you land matching symbols across 3 adjacent reels, playing from left to right. There are 4096 ways to win, however, this can increase when the reels expand (I’ll explain this below).

Expanding Reels – Whenever you form a win the symbols involved will expand so that you have 1 additional symbol space on the reel it landed on. The symbols that contributed to the win and the additional symbols will spin again, giving you another chance to win. As the reels expand the number of ways to win will increase, up to a maximum of 10 symbol spaces per reel and a maximum of 1,000,000 ways to win.

Stacked Respin – When your additional symbols are added to the reels for a respin they will stacked with the triggering symbols and will reveal the same symbols.

Theme – It’s difficult to pick a theme out for this one as it is essentially a fairly traditional slot. There is something resembling an old fashioned game show about this one, but nothing to distinguish it too much.

Special Symbols

Wild – The Wild symbol will substitute for all symbols other than Bonus symbols.

Bonus – The Bonus symbol is the “Diamond” and you need 3 or more of them to trigger the Free Spins feature.

Bonus Features

Synched Respin – This is a random feature that can trigger following a Stacked Respin. If it triggers it will synch between 2-5 adjacent reels and have them all reveal identical symbols.

Free Spins – 3, 4, 5 or 6 Free Spins symbols will award 10, 15, 20 or 25 Free Spins respectively.

Grand Spin Meter – In the Free Spins every 5th win triggers a Grand Respin. When this happens between 2-5 reels will synch with each other. Then, on the first respin the 4th reel will expand. On the next respin reels 4 and 5 will expand. All subsequent respins will see reels 4, 5 and 6 expand.


Aesthetically, The Grand Galore, isn’t up to the standard of some of Elk’s other slots. However, the betting strategies that Elk continue to include remain a major issue. They offer no advantage and could in fact be considered a dangerous inclusion in a game that is based entirely on random chance. The implication that skill or a tactic can be in any way deployed is one that we cannot endorse, no matter how good this slot might be. With a fair degree of regret we cannot give The Grand Galore a positive review.
