Thunderkick are back again with the finale to their mighty Beat the Beast series of games, Beat the Beast Griffins Gold Slot
Your quest is to best this mighty foe and recover the guarded treasures. Thunderkick have chosen their beasts wisely, having previously made games depicting the savage Kraken, Sphinx, Cerberus and Quetzalcoatl.
How will the Griffin measure up? And do you have what it takes to emerge victorious one last time?
Thunderkick haven’t just focused on Beat the Beast this year, having also released New Slots like Crystal Quest Deep Jungle and Jin Chan’s Pond of Riches, both of which showcasing the quality games that Thunderkick are capable of producing.
It’s good to see another Beat the Beast game though, and this one is the final, so we’re hoping for some magic.
Beat the Beast Griffins Gold Slot depicts the mighty Griffin atop a column in statue form, surrounded by the ruins…It looks like the home of the Griffin has been untouched for some time.
There isn’t too much in terms of visuals really to be honest, apart from the mountainous view, but the reel design and the audio for the game is decent, much like all the predecessor games were.
Despite the lack of fancy and animated visuals, it’s been designed to a decent standard, and after all it is the gameplay that matters most, and gameplay is where the Beat the Beast games really shine.
Betting options for Beat the Beast Griffins Gold Slot covers a fair few bases, making sure that all people can have a stab at the game. The lowest option starts from £0.10, with the highest option at £100, and there’s plenty of option in between too.
The top regular symbol in the game as you’d expect is the brutish yet majestic Griffin, followed by a Griffin Statue, a Harp, a Feather and a Crossbow. Low paying symbols are A, K, Q, J & 10. The Griffin emblem also serves a Scatter, Scatter Pays and Wild function.
The base game for Beat the Beast Griffins Gold Slot works much like the other games do. There are 9 paylines in total, and any 3 consecutive matching symbols across any of these 9 pay lines from left to right will award a win.
There isn’t loads going on here, but big wins are definitely possible if you manage to match some of the high paying symbols all the way either standalone or with the help of the Griffin Emblem Wild.
That’s pretty much all you can hope for though, no features to speak of really, all of the excitement of Beat the Beast Griffins Gold Slot definitely lies within the much-desired Free Spins round.
3 Griffin Emblem symbols are needed to trigger the Casino Bonus on Beat the Beast Griffins Gold Slot , and 10 spins will be awarded. This is where the game will differ to its brother and sister games with the introduction of it’s Wild Multiplier and Roaming Wilds feature.
Both of these features can make the game potential soar to new heights previously impossible in the base game.
The Roaming Wild feature will substitute for any other symbol, and they will remain on the reels for the entirety of the bonus game. Before each spin, this will roam to a new position adjacent to its current position.
Getting a win where 1 or more Roaming Wild symbols is included in 1 or more winning pay lines will award an extra spin.
The Roaming Wild symbol will carry a multiplier, which always starts at 1x. If the Roaming Wild is included in 1 or more wins, then the multiplier will increase.
The potential for the game is huge because of the fact that the Roaming Wild symbols multiply any win rather than add together. For perspective, this means three 5x roaming Wilds in a line would multiply into a 125x rather than add together for a 15x.
Beat the Beast Griffins Gold Slot is as viable a choice as any of the other of the games in the series…apart from maybe Krakens Lair which is probably the best of the bunch.
Still though, the game can offer some high performance if you’re lucky enough, with max wins of up to a massive 22,222x.
Games possible of producing hits like this are certainly something special, though the game is volatile like the rest so it’s highly probably that you won’t get anywhere near this, BUT that’s not to say that the game can’t go off.
Any game where multipliers multiply by each other rather than add together is a big deal, and it’s because of this that Griffins Gold can yield some incredible wins.
The only thing really missing is some base game features, unless you manage to get the bonus, you’re unlikely to see much potential from the game…or have a lot of fun, although, the prospect is there for a good hit now and again if you manage to get a line of good symbols.
Beat the Beast Griffins Gold Slot is available to on selected Online Casinos now!
