This Beat the Beast: Griffin’s Gold slot has some great walking wilds, some big multipliers and some big wins. So what more could you need?
Set in a bright and breezy afternoon overlooking an old colosseum, this mythical beast awaits any brave warriors ready to answer one question: dare you jump onboard and fly away? Or will you fall and get crushed?
So be prepared. Don’t let that sunny background fool you into a false sense of complacency. You need to be brave to hunt down the Griffin’s treasure.
The paytabble is pretty generous, helped by the fact that all the high paying symbols pay out on two symbol wins. From the Top paying Griffin, to the Griffin Statue, the Lyre, the feather, and the cross bow.
Even the low paying symbols pay at least 15x your bet on a 5 of a kind win. Of course with only 9 paylines you expect this Beat the Beast: Griffin’s Gold slot to have a good paytable.
In the base game, your biggest win is maybe 1,350x your bet, which is good but not the promised gold. The wild is also the scatter so whilst it can help create wins, it’s certainly not here to do more than to trigger the bonus games
And the multipliers come in the free spins. Any wild that shows up becomes a roaming wild; meaning it will float around the screen one spin at a time, helping to create wins.
You start with 10 free spins, which usually wouldn’t be quite enough to catch sufficient wilds to get the big wins of this Beat the Beast: Griffin’s Gold. Right? Wrong.
Because every time you get a win with a wild you get a +1 free spins and the multiplier on that wild increases by 1. Do you get more than one wild often? No. But it can happen. Do you catch the free spins often? No. But what do you expect of a high variance machine?
We really loved this real money slot, but we know many will find it incredibly frustrating. Still with bigger wins even than the Kraken’s Lair slot or the Mighty Sphinx slot game, this Griffin’s Gold is our favourite of the Beat the Beast series.

Wild/Scatter: The Griffin Emblem is both the scatter and the wild. It can be used to replace any other symbol on the reels and pay when you get 3 to 5 symbols anywhere on the reels. It also triggers the bonus.
Bonus Games: Get 3 scatter symbols to trigger 10 free spins. During the free spins, the roaming wild symbols will substitute for any other symbols and will remain on the reels for the rest of the free spins. Before each new free spins, it will roam to an adjacent position.
A spin with one or more roaming wild symbols included in 1 or more winning paylines will award 1 extra free spin. Each time the wild is involved in a win, it will increase its multipliers by 1.
There is something wonderfully enticing about this Beat the Beast: Griffin's Gold slot, and it's not just the fact that you can win 22,222x your bet. But that helps.
There's a nice flow to this Thunderkick game mostly because you get lots of 2 symbol wins, and the wild and scatter shows up often enough to give you little moments of hope.
But as with most of the Beat the Beast slots by Thunderkick, this is a volatile game and you'll get all your big wins in the free spins. Patience is needed to get to the top of this game, and you have to accept that or move on to something a little easier like the Barbershop Uncut slot.
