Relax Gaming’s creepy card game claims SOTW triumph

Relax Gaming’s latest spooky slot release has players seeing double as Grim the Splitter used duplicating symbols to clinch our Slot of the Week award.

Using a 5×3 reel set-up with 25-paylines, Grim the Splitter showcases splitting wilds to offer payline combinations of up to 20 identical symbols, giving the game a maximum win of up to x10,000 the player’s stake. The game also has high volatility with an RTP of 94 per cent.

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.”

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. 

Low value symbols come in the form of playing card suits of clubs, hearts, diamonds and spades, while high value symbols are depicted as bats, birds, cats and dogs. 

These symbols offer a range of payouts, from x0.4 to x750 the player’s stake, depending on the amount of split symbols that appear on a single spin.

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