Introducing Beat the Beast Griffin's Gold slot
The first thing you may think is that Beat the Beast Griffin's Gold looks like other slots, and whilst this may be true Beat the Beast Griffin's Gold is centred around the creature from Greek mythology which was part eagle and part lion, and although it may not be the most scary creature you will have come across it has the job to guard the biggest treasure you have ever seen! The base game is stripped completely back to the basics, so it requires patience on your behalf to activate the bonus round.
Beat the Beast Griffin's Gold is a continuation in the Beat the Beast series from the game developers at Thunderkick and it will see you fighting the Mighty Sphinx, a Kraken, Cerberus, and Quetzalcoatl. Whist these may have played the main creatures in other slots you are looking for the Griffin from Ancient Greek mythology. If you are ready get reading to find out about the slot that has the highest potential in this series.
Theme and Design
This slot will take you to an open air Ancient Greek Amphitheatre inspired by the Griffin. Surrounding your game screen are the stone columns which are topped with Golden Griffin statues. The Griffin is the bird creature in mythology that has the head and wings of a bird and the body of a lion, the predator.
When it comes to symbols, you can expect to come across the gold medallion which takes on the role of both the wild and the scatter, next is the multiplier wild then the Griffin, a Gold Griffin Statue, a Harp, Griffin’s Feather, Crossbow and finally the Royals which range from 10 through to the Ace.
Before you can begin, you need to make sure that you are familiar with the game area which houses 5-reels, 3-rows and 9 pay lines. Although this does mean that there will only be a low number of win combinations. However, the good thing is that the pay-out potential stands at 22,222x the stake which compared with the win combination potential is seriously impressive. To arrive at this point you will have to hope luck is on your side as you can land multipliers from the wilds that can combine to provide you with 125x your regular wins. The best chance you have for getting this to happen is through the free spins. The volatility in the slot is extremely high with a return to player that stands at 96.14%
Bets & Prizes
When you are ready to play you need to decide on the bet you are most comfortable playing with and this starts from a minimum of $0.10 per spin but this increases to over $100 per spin which are numbers that will appeal to all types of players dependent on their budget.
It is the top pay out of 22,222x your stake that will really get your attention, and for this you must land combined multipliers of 125x your stake making it not difficult to see how, particularly when they are applied to wins in the base game of up to 150x line, or 1,350x the stake being the minimum where there are no multipliers.
Unfortunately, the game is not as accessible to all as it could be, this is obvious though due to the numbers required.
There are not many features in Beat the Beast Griffin's Gold but in the base game there is the wild/scatter symbol which is represented by the Golden Griffin medallion which you will typically use as a wild to substitute and create winning combinations.
When the Golden Griffin medallion is used as a scatter it must land on your 3rd, 4th, and 5th reels. If you manage this, you will be rewarded with 10 free spins as well as a reward that is worth up to 200x your stake.
Once you are playing the free spins you are provided with an extra symbol which is represented by a gold bird on the top and wreaths on the with a red background in between them both. When this symbol lands the wild will be used for all the following spins. The wild moves to a different position on every spin as well as having a multiplier that starts from 1x and goes up to 5x raising by 1x with each new win it creates or helps to create. You can combine up to three of the wild multipliers in a single combination and it is this total boost that can create your win to equal 125x your stake. That is not all as you are also rewarded another round for every winning spin which had a roaming wild which contributed to the winning combination.
Beat the Beast Griffin’s Gold is an excellent new title in Thunderkick’s volatile Beat the Beast series. The first instalment was Kraken’s Lair, which got players very excited, but the following games in the series were all to similar to the first, but the developers have obviously pulled out all the stops and saved the best for last and this has made sure the series ends on a high note.
The colossal 22,222x maximum win is the highest potential that has been offered and has earnt this slot a place amongst other high rolling titles such as Riders of the Storm and Carnival Queen. The base game can become tedious particularly when it feels like a hit or miss situation.
Although the features are minimal and there are only a few pay lines, I would rate this slot as a solid 9.5/10 and thanks to the powerful free spins and immense pay outs this is a slot that you will want to check out yourself.
