Grand Canyon Slot Machine

See the Grand Canyon like you've never seen it before on the 5 reels of this 20 payline slot machine by Merkur Gaming. Like the natural wonder which it is named after, Grand Canyon serves up some sublime views as well as some rewarding experiences.

And when we say rewarding, we don't mean in a spiritual sense; because this video slot has the potential to pay out some big wins with a jackpot worth up to 9,000 credits. Plus, players can enjoy plenty of novelty action and big bonus boosts thanks to wild icons that double wins and free spins with triple value prizes.

Breathtaking spins

The Grand Canyon is on of the natural wonders of North America. Carved out by the Colorado River, the epic gorge runs through the state of Arizona for 277 miles in length. At its widest, the canyon's opposing sides are 18 miles apart. At its deepest, the cliffs fall down for more than a mile. Now that is pretty impressive if you ask us.

In order to emulate the sheer immensity of its namesake, this Grand Canyon themed slot machine presents a landscape backdrop of cliffs and weird rock formations behind the reels while a series of epic movie soundtrack sounds will play from time to time whenever the reels are loaded and winning combinations are struck. Upon the reels themselves, spinners will discover some of the tough wildlife and plantlife that somehow manages to survive in the harsh conditions of the desert environment; there are deer, mules, and two icons which feature magnificent bald eagles.

The first of those eagle symbols presents a tree and an eagle and this acts as the slot machine's scatter symbol, meaning that it doesn't have to align on a payline to award wins. What's more, every time that three or more scatter symbols appear, 5 free spins will be played with all wins multiplied by x3. The second eagle icon shows the graceful bird of prey in flight and it acts as the game's wild symbol which will substitute for all other icons except the scatter. And when a win is formed by this wild eagle, the standard prize value will be doubled.

Mixed signals

In terms of aesthetics, Grand Canyon serves up a bit of a mis-match in design styles. That is because the game uses some novelty style 3D animations to depict a series of symbols such as the donkey and deer as well as a cactus and dinghy, both of which are depicted with as wacky characters with eyes. Meanwhile, however, the game features a realistically illustrated eagle icon and some romantic images of the landscape at sunset. So, even though the game is visually impressive, it does give off mixed signals about the theme which feels wacky and fun at times but serious and awe-inspiring at others.

Enrich yourself with nature

Regardless of whether this game makes you laugh or drop your jaw in awe, there is no confusion at all when it comes to the winning prizes. In fact, the game offers a fairly straightforward set of wins that are automatically updated in the paytable depending on the size of the bet per line that you choose to play with. Those wager per line options are 0.01, 0.02, 0.03, 0.05, 0.10, 0.15, 0.20, 0.25, 0.50 and 1,00. Plus, with the choice of 1, 5, 10, 15 and 20 paylines, punters of all experience levels and betting strategies should find an overall stake that best suits their needs.

The majority of wins on offer are given as line bet multipliers whenever two or more of the same icon line up on an active payline, as you can see in the table below:

Spinners will also find some wins whenever two or more scatter icons – depicted by the eagle on a tree – appear on the reels in any position. Two scatters will multiply the total bet by 2x, three scatters will pay 5x, four scatters will go for 20x and five scatters will fetch 400x the total bet value.

A grand slot machine?

With wins worth up to 9,000 credits, Grand Canyon is a slot machine that offers some breathtaking gambling action. Admittedly, the game is a bit confused on the design front – it doesn't know whether it is trying to be funny or serious. Nonetheless, each spin is guaranteed to be filled with colour and eye-catching action, not to mention the potential for free spins with triple wins.
