Beat the Beast: Griffin’s Gold
Innovative solutions provider Thunderkick sign off their successful ‘Beat the Beast’ series in style with the most lucrative offering of the lot.
At 22,222x, Beat the Beast: Griffin’s Gold boasts the biggest maximum win of the entire series - reason alone for anyone who hasn’t yet dipped their toes in the pentalogy to come and jump on the Thunderkick bandwagon.
The classic 5-reel, 3-row reel setup makes an unsurprising return, with several aspects of the series fittingly turned up for this, the curtain closer.
On first glance the design appears produced in distinctly Beat the Beast style - featuring chunky slot symbols comprising remnants of the old world.
The slot sees the ancient civilisations of Egypt and Greece come together among the grounds of temple ruins, characterised by decaying pillars backdropped by an idyllic blue sky. A well thought-out audio track completes the scene. It’s a pleasing outlook, one the developer have managed to fine-tune to good effect.
Scanning the paytable we discover 12 symbols, split into low pays made up of royals between 10 and A. Three of these constitutes a win, while the far more lucrative premiums, made up of Crossbows, Feathers, Lyres, Griffin, Statues, and Griffins, require just 2. The latter is particularly valuable, awarding 150x your stake whenever five populate one of the 9 paylines.
Gameplay and Features
In keeping with the conventional gameplay, matching the required amount of symbols across adjacent reels from left>right is enough to bank a win in Beat the Beast: Griffin’s Gold.
Land between 3 and 5 Scatters to get your hands on 10 Free Spins, accompanied by a multiplier value ranging from 2x to 200x.
Central to the bonus round are Roaming Wilds, which enter the fray to replace all regular symbols and remain locked onto the reels for the duration of the feature.
Prior to each spin, these Wilds take up an adjacent position, carrying increasing multipliers that begin at 1x and max out at 5x whenever they form part of winning combos. If two or more Roaming Wilds combine to form a win, their values are multiplied together to help you unlock the biggest prizes. Furthermore, such combos also result in 1 additional free spin, prolonging the bonus.
Beat the Beast: Griffin’s Gold on Mobile
Like all preceding titles in the series, Beat the Beast: Griffin’s Gold has been optimised for seamless mobile play with its game controls integrated smartly. Enjoy the slot anywhere that provides a stable enough internet connection.
In fitting with the augmented max win, Thunderkick crank up the volatility factor for the final Beat the Beast outing. The game calls for a healthy dose of patience and deep enough pockets if you are to summon the riches of the legendary Griffin.
Beat the Beast: Griffin’s Gold is a worthy finale to Thunderkick’s highly impressive Beat the Beast series. The developer have chosen to turn up various elements of the series for the capstone project, from the gameplay, to the max win potential.
Some may be put off by the simplified reel mechanics with a total of just 9 paylines in play across a 5x3 layout - but this marks is a welcome return to more classic gaming, complemented by some modern-day aesthetics.
All together, the result is an enthralling game that will further delight fans of the series, while newcomers to the scene should also find plenty in the offing to ensure hours of fun-filled slot action. Tying all games together is some high quality audio-visual production, anchored by compelling narratives inspired by legends of antiquity.
We eagerly await to see what exciting follow-up project the budding developer decide to conjure up next.
