Quickspin Announces Release of Second Cluster Game – Ghost Glyph! Slot


The Swedish game development studio, Quickspin, has a new treat for its players – the spooky Ghost Glyph! slot. As a provider famous for its groundbreaking gamification tools, it has once again managed to combine highly engaging gameplay with stunning visuals.

Quickspin has a way of making its products both exciting and very visually appealing. This game is no exception, and also comes with big winning potential.

Arranged as a 7x7 grid...

…this slot is the developer’s second release featuring the cluster-pay mechanism. To make things more interesting, this game also comes with numerous inventive special features.

Perfect Halloween Release

The timing of the release couldn’t be better – the official launch is scheduled for September 8th. That’s more than enough time for players to get familiar with it and for online casinos to add it to their libraries before Halloween.

What makes this slot perfect for celebrating this holiday?

Well, its theme revolves around an old, haunted house. Hidden underneath its grounds is a completely different world where ghosts have a life of their own, each with its unique ability, quirkiness, and characteristics. While it is a dark theme, Quickspin lightened it with a humorous twist and superb animation. 

As a second installment of the Glyph series…

…the newest title takes Golden Glyph’s intriguing mechanics to an even higher level of action. Aside from clusters, it features medium volatility, more features you can count and a 31% hit rate in the base game, making the room for winnings of up to 2000x.

Michael Spinks, The Art Lead and FX for this project, commented the upcoming game:

 “We’re trying to achieve a feeling of a gaming level, with the mechanics of a slot game. We want characters to come onto the reels to activate the features so the player gains an understanding of each character’s ability during the gameplay, and builds an understanding of how the game works very quickly. It is a predecessor of the Golden Glyph, but we’re trying to accomplish a completely different feel with a dark humorous twist.”

Array of Exciting Features Await Players

Tumble Mechanics are available in both the base game and bonus rounds, implying that any symbols that are part of a winning cluster are removed and empty positions are filled with symbols falling from above. Any new wins are added to the existing win and the tumbling ends when there are no new winning clusters.

But that’s just the beginning of the numerous special features this slot has to offer. Those are:

Ghost Glyph feature - After the removal of winning clusters and before the next tumble begins, the Ghost Glyph is awarded in one of the empty spaces, evaluated and removed as a Wild. The removal of the symbol will activate one of the Ghost Urns.

Urn Features - Before each spin, 5 Ghost Urns are randomly determined. The final Ghost Urn is always the Blue Ghost Urn, while the first 4 Ghost Urns are chosen randomly. Ghost Urns are activated from left to right for each Ghost Glyph consumed as part of a win, and when there is a no wins, activated Ghost Urns are awarded in the order they were activated.

  • Yellow Ghost Urn - Spreads 4-10 randomly placed Wilds in the game area
  • Green Ghost Urn - Targets one randomly selected low paying symbol and transform all occurrences of that symbol in the game area to another low paying symbol type
  • Red Ghost Urn - Removes low paying symbols
  • Blue Ghost Urn - Activates the bonus game or awards 3+ extra spins in the bonus game.

Massive Wild Feature is activated at the end of the extra spins if the last Paranormality Meter reaches Level 1 or higher. If it measures less than Level 3, Massive Wild symbols are removed when part of a win. The Massive Wild Feature has 22 levels, and it will keep you on the edge of your seat.

As will other features, each unique in its own way. This title is one all lovers of one-armed bandits should check out after its global launch.
