At first glance, Beat The Beast: Griffin’s Gold is everything that would be expected. An enormous, overbearing monster is the centre of attention, gazing at the player in defiance. An impressive amount of detail has gone into the creature’s design, with each feather, and each clawed talon, lovingly detailed.
On the reels is more dazzling artwork, including a series of mythical symbols that depict the monster via fascinating gold patterns. Plus, the pokie’s reels contain another important artefact, namely the weapon that the player can use to mount an attack. A crossbow.
Slay The Beast
At its core, Beat The Beast: Griffins Gold has an interesting collection of gameplay features. The base game includes 5 reels, 3 rows, and an RTP of 96.14%. The excitement, and biggest payouts, can be found in the Bonus game. This is where the Griffin can be beaten, but only by those that are fast enough to catch it.
Matching 3 Golden Emblem Scatters grants 10 Free Spins, and also lures the creature from its place of hiding. The Griffin will now roam the pokie’s reels, causing havoc wherever it lands. Or, to be more precise; it will roam the reels as a Wild, actually being an enormous advantage to the player, and helping to gather enormous payouts. Perhaps the feathered fiend just wanted to be friends after all?
Roaming Wild Bonuses
Over the course of Free Spins, Wilds become roaming, which is already a fantastic advantage. But, these Roaming Wilds also gather multipliers between each spin, gaining x1. Thus, the more Wilds that land on the reels, the more multiplier winning potential, and the higher the payouts.
But that isn’t all. Each time a Roaming Wild lands in a matching sequence, an additional Free Spin is also awarded, potentially keeping the sequence going for some time.
Beat The Beast: Griffin’s Gold officially wraps up the series of pokies for Thunderkick, and it can safely be said that the games are going out with a bang. The game is live now, and those keen on facing a mythical monster can try their luck on desktop or mobile device.
