Beowulf – Game Review
Have you ever heard the epic tale of Beowulf, the Scandinavian hero who rescues the Danes from the monster Grendel by defeating him? After this impressive victory, he even ends up slaying a dragon in his own kingdom many years later. Such heroic actions make for a thrilling and adventurous online slot game, which is exactly what you get with QuickSpin’s Beowulf slot. Step into the boots of this mighty warrior and take home the spoils of victory!
At first glance, Beowulf is a very dynamic slot game. The hero himself stands guard alongside the reels to fend off any attacks. Across the reels you’ll find the standard symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A that have been redesigned to suit the ancient Nordic atmosphere of the game. These are complemented by five different characters, the highest paying 150x your bet per line if you match five on an active pay-line.
One of the unique features in the Beowulf slot game is the Grendel Attack. The Grendel symbol will appear at random on reel 5 alongside a random number of golden wolf Wild symbols scattered across the reels. As soon as Beowulf spots Grendel, he’ll draw his sword to slay him. Each Grendel symbol will award a respin and the Wild symbols are locked in place for the duration of the respins. There is also a regular Wild Symbol that looks like a golden horn and substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter, the Grendel Symbol and any of the special bonus symbols.
Keep an eye out for the Scatter symbols featuring a menacing dragon. They can appear on any of the five reels and three or more of these will trigger the Free Spins. You’ll also receive a pay-out at this point based on the amount of Scatter symbols that triggered the bonus. The Free Spin Dragon Fight determines how many free spins you get to play with, although there is no predetermined number which is rather unique in progressive slots. The Free Spins will continue until the fight between Beowulf and the Dragon is over.
The dragon will appear atop the reels and Beowulf has his sword at the ready to battle the beast. The Free Spins will start and whenever a Sword & Shield Wild symbol appears, Beowulf will hack away at the dragon and 1 health will be removed from the Dragon Health Bar. Any sword symbol will then become a Locked Shield Wild and remain on the reels for the duration of the free spins.
There is also a Dragon Bonus Symbol which can appear anywhere on the reels, causing the dragon to breathe fire on Beowulf and 1 health being removed from the Beowulf Health Bar. This will also remove the Locked Shield Wild symbol that was awarded first – if there are any – but the fire will also briefly turn the entire reel Wild to increase your chance of having a winning combination on a pay-line. The battle and Free Spin bonus ends when either the dragon or Beowulf has an empty Health Bar and is defeated. If Beowulf wins the battle, you get to play 3 extra free spins before the bonus round ends. A fitting reward for a hero!
The Free Spin Dragon Fight Bonus game is definitely what makes this slot game one of our favourites. It’s epic, adventurous and has the potential to give you some truly grand winnings. You can get your hands on them too when playing Beowulf at SuperCasino. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to slay some dragons and cash in.
