There’s a new addition to the list of innovative features available in online slot games. Swedish developer of online casino content, Quickspin, has proudly announced that its Power Glyph symbol, found in several game titles, has become the company’s first branded mechanic.
After making its debut in Golden Glyph, the symbol made another successful appearance in the Ghost Glyph slot, quickly becoming one of the developer’s most popular features. After hugely positive feedback from both slot lovers and operators, the Playtech-owned gaming studio decided to take the feature to the next level by trademarking it. That way, the new mechanic has been made an exclusive part of the Quickspin offering.
According to Quickspin, we can look forward to seeing it in many upcoming releases.
How Does Power Glyph Work?
The new Power Glyph mechanic uses two main elements. The first one is the Power Glyph Symbol. But Power Glyph is not an ordinary symbol, as it can replace all other regulars, helping players form new wins. The Power Glyph Symbol can spin in on all reels and even spawn from a win.
The second element that comprises the Power Glyph mechanic is the Power-Up Stack. Visible at the beginning of the round, it contains a number of game features. The features are triggered when the Power Glyph symbol is involved in a win.
Although the features can be activated once the reels stop spinning, it’s possible to do that immediately.
Games Featuring the Power Glyph Mechanic
As of June 2021, the Power Glyph is available in three of Quickpin’s Cluster games.
Golden Glyph is the first Quickspin title to feature the Power Glyph mechanic. Launched in early 2020, this Egyptian-themed game invites players to embark on an adventure of epic proportions, promising lots of excitement and the possibility to uncover immense ancient treasures.
Set in the land of the Pharaohs and played on a seven-by-seven grid, the game has quickly become very popular with players of all types. It also comes with a wide selection of exciting features, including the Power Wild feature, Tumble mechanics, and the Power-Up feature. The latter offer four exciting Power-Ups: Blaze of Fire, Eye of Horus, Golden Scarab, and a Free Spins bonus round.
The second title to feature the Power Glyph mechanic is Ghost Glyph, which went live in September 2020. Hitting the market just in time for Halloween, the game takes players to a haunted house, where ghosts live a life of their own. Each of them has distinctive characteristics and abilities and offers a different range of prizes for players.
This cluster game is well balanced, offering prizes of up to 2,200 times the bet on every spin, medium volatility, and a hit rate of 31%. But there are more than colourful ghosts that will captivate you, as Quickpin made sure the slot is filled with exciting features.
Golden Glyph 2
Following the immense success of the original Golden Glyph slot, Quickspin has recently launched the sequel to the popular title. Once again, players visit the land of the Pharaohs in another thrilling adventure featuring the Power Glyph mechanics.
Golden Glyph was the developer’s first cluster game, and with the latest release, slot enthusiasts will have the chance to enjoy revamped design, increased hit rates, and more exciting gameplay.
In terms of features, the title offers a wide variety of functionalities that further add to the excitement. First of all, there’s the Tumbling Reels mechanic, which removes a winning cluster from the grid and fills the empty positions with new symbols. This allows players to form consecutive wins within a single spin, leading to staggering payouts.
The Power Glyph feature is there in both the Main Game and the Golden Free Spins bonus round, with a total of seven Power-Ups available.
Landing three Scatters activates the bonus round, awarding seven spins. Additional three Scatters are needed to add five more spins to the count. A Wild appears in the first spin, remaining on the reels until the feature ends. However, it will randomly change its positions on every subsequent spin.
Golden Glyph 2 comes with a Bonus Buy feature, allowing players to activate the Free Spins round for a specific price. They can also choose the number of Wilds they’ll have during the bonus.
