Beat the Beast: Griffin’s Gold slot review (Thunderkick)
Beat the Beast: Griffin’s Gold (Thunderkick) – stunning slot, great animations and massive win potential
The griffin (Griffin) is a striking and fabulous beast. It has the head, the wings and an upper body of an eagle; a lower body and four(!) legs of a lion; and the ears of a horse.
His task was to guard hidden treasures, in Ancient Greek mythology, and that’s what this slot is all about. It is no surprise that the slot must stand out, with such a spectacular theme.
And I can confirm that it does. The animations are spot-on, and Griffin’s Gold is, without any doubt, the most volatile Thunderkick slot!
On Griffin’s Gold, the top win is a blasting 22,222x bet
For Thunderkick, it’s massive! Only Riders of the Storm and Carnival Queen have a higher max win.

Griffin’s Gold slot – Gameplay and Features
The game has 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols, and there are 9 fixed paylines. The:
- Griffin is the highest paying symbol.
- Medium-paying symbols are in order from most to least lucrative:
- a Golden Griffin statuette
- a Harp
- a Feather
- a Crossbow
- Low-paying symbols are the usual royals: 10, J, Q, K and A.
- Golden Griffin Emblem is a Wild Scatter and replaces all symbols.
The main game plays straightforward and is probably a bit monotonous. It is best to win the free spins, rather sooner than later.
How do you get the free spins?
That’s pretty straightforward with this slot. Land 3 or more Scatters, and you activate 10 free spins.
Free spins: sit down and enjoy, because this is where the fireworks begin
The free spins play the same as the main game, but there are two crucial differences. You have the Roaming Wild symbols and the Wild Multipliers.
We have the Roaming Wild symbol which replaces all other symbols, but more importantly, remains in-play for the remaining free spins! For the subsequent free spin, the Roaming Wild roams (wanders) to another adjacent position on the reels. You can get up to 3 Roaming Wilds.
By the way, if one more Roaming Wilds are part of a winning combo, you win one extra free spin.
But it gets even more fun.
The Roaming Wild symbol starts with a start multiplier of x1. If a Roaming Wild is part of a winning combo, though, the multiplier increases by +1. The Roaming Wild gets a Wild Multiplier that can be as high as x5.
As you can have up to 3 Roaming Wilds and as they can have multipliers up to x5 each, you’re talking about a mind-blowing 125x total multiplier, if all 3 Roaming Wilds are part of a winning combo!
Payout percentage (RTP)
The payout rate is 96.14%. It’s not exceptionally high, but it’s certainly not bad.
Griffin’s Gold slot – the variance (volatility) is very high
The volatility is calculated and is 16.96, according to Thunderkick. I can confirm that the variance is towering high and that it is, until today, the most volatile Thunderkick slot.
Wins of a few thousand times the bet are, without a doubt, feasible.
Pros en Cons
So, who’ll like the slot? And who won’t?
This slot caters to players who don’t want to play an overly complicated slot, but want to have lots of fun and want to win big! Because you can indeed win massively.
If you prefer to play more cautiously, you better stay away. In the end, we’re talking about the most volatile Thunderkick slot, up to now.
