The wild feature in this game is represented by a golden playing card depicting a skull. These wilds substitute for all symbols in the game other than the bonus scatter and activate the game’s Splitter feature. 

When a wild lands on a reel, it will split all other symbols in that reel into two, doubling the amount of symbols that can contribute to a winning payline on that reel. 

This allows for a maximum winning combination of 20 symbols as this can occur up to three times on the same reel during the free spins game mode. 

Low value symbols come in the form of playing card suits, with clubs, hearts, diamonds and spades. These symbols can offer between x0.4 and x120 the player’s stake, depending on the amount of winning combinations that land on a single spin. 

High value symbols are represented by playing cards that depict bats, birds, cats and dogs. If the right amount of winning combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x1 and x750 the player’s preferred bet. 

Dream Drop symbols are also available, triggering the jackpot bonus game mode if five land on the same spin.

Finally, bonus B scatters can drop into play, activating the free spins feature when three or more appear on the same spin. 


With the free spins, players are awarded seven free spins while the splitting wild feature stays persistent for the duration of the bonus game mode.

Landing a bonus scatter during this game mode will award an additional free spin; however, if the scatter is split then each resulting scatter will award a free spin each. 

With the Dream Drop bonus, players must choose from 15 playing cards with hidden jackpot prizes behind them. Once the player has selected an identical prize three times, they will win its respective jackpot value. 

Jackpot prizes on offer in this game include rapid, midi, maxi, major and mega values, which are all progressive jackpots displayed to the side of the reels. 


Simon Hammon, CEO of Relax Gaming, commented: “Grim the Splitter is unlike anything we have created before or that we’ve even seen on the market. The reel splitting mechanic is a true innovation and we’re confident players will have a blast with it.

“The tone is spookier than anything we’ve done before but there are quite a few funny moments sprinkled in, lightening the mood for a roller coaster experience that’s sure to keep players engaged.”
