Beowulf is a video slots game by Quickspin. It is based on the Old English epic poem of the same name, taking players on a Scandinavian adventure with the saga’s hero, Beowulf, attempting to defeat Grendel the monster. The game features five reels, three rows, and twenty five pay lines to play on, and offers players various wilds, free spins, and bonus features.
The Free Spins Bonus Feature
The Free Spins Bonus Feature in the Beowulf video slots game is activated when players land three or more free spin scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Once this free spins feature has been activated, players will also receive a certain bonus multiplier, depending on how many scatter symbols were landed. If players land three scatter symbols, they will receive a three time multiplier. If players land four scatter symbols, they will receive a ten time multiplier. Finally, if players land five scatter symbols, they will receive a twenty time multiplier. The free spins will play out in the Dragon Fight Bonus feature.
The Dragon Fight Bonus Feature
The Dragon Fight Bonus feature in the Beowulf video slots game represents the fight between the Beowulf hero and the Grendel dragon.
In this feature, players will lose or win depending on how many sword and dragon symbols are landed. Both the Beowulf character and the dragon will have a health bar on the screen representing their strength. For every sword symbol that is landed, one health point will be taken away from the dragon health bar. For every dragon symbol that is landed, one health point will be taken away from the Beowulf health bar. If the Beowulf character wins, players will be rewarded with three additional spins.
After the fight, the free spins rewarded will be played out. Wild swords will remain locked on the reels for the duration of the free spins round or until a dragon symbol removes them. The dragon symbol can only remove one sword symbol, and it will remove the first one given.
The Grendel Attack Feature
The Grendel Attack feature is another special feature of the Beowulf video slots game. This feature is randomly triggered during game play. When this happens, players will be rewarded with a certain random number of wild symbols. These wild symbols will remain fixed in their position for the duration of a number of re-spins. The number of re-spins players are rewarded with will depend on how many Grendel symbols were landed.
The Beowulf Wild Symbol
The regular wild symbol in the Beowulf real money online pokies game is represented by the horn. This horn wild symbol can substitute any of the other symbols, except for the free spins scatter symbol and the bonus symbols of the dragon and the sword. In substituting these other symbols, the wild symbol can help players complete winning pay lines and make up the best possible winning combinations. This regular horn wild symbol will be played in addition to the sword wild symbol that is played with in the free spins round after the Dragon Fight Bonus feature.
