Beowulf

Introduction

Something of a departure from their more cartoon-based video slots, Beowulf is a Quickspin title based on the epic English poem about a Danish warrior and his battles with the hideous Grendel.

Both characters feature prominently in the design of the five-reel, 25-payline game, with Beowulf entering a number of battles with both Grendel and a ferocious dragon to bag players random re-spins and a lucrative free spins game. The slot also features sticky and expanding wilds, both of which will help players on their way to earning a maximum regular jackpot of 500x their stake.

Theme

Attempting to recreate the saga described in the original medieval poem, Beowulf is a much darker slot than what players have come to expect from Quickspin. The game features state-of-the-art 3D graphics, with an animated Beowulf standing to the left of the gameboard, while the symbols used on the reels include kings, princesses, various warriors and a wild horn. Battles in both of the game’s bonus features see Beowulf spring into action, while the slot also boasts a suitably heroic soundtrack.

Bonus Features

The two main bonus features in Beowulf both depict his encounters with monsters from the original poem. The first is the randomly triggered Grendel Attack bonus, which will see between one and three Grendel symbols appear on the fifth reel. Beowulf will lunge forward to attack Grendel – with each symbol awarding a free re-spin – and as he walks back, random icons will become sticky wilds.

The second bonus game is triggered whenever three or more dragon scatter symbols appear on the reels. This starts an epic clash between Beowulf and the dragon, with both characters having a life metre that diminishes as the battle unfolds. Free spins will continue indefinitely until on character is defeated, with sword wilds draining the dragon’s health and dragon eye wilds doing the same to Beowulf. All sword wilds also remain in place until they are removed by a dragon eye symbol.

Gameplay

In spite of its epic battles, Beowulf is a surprisingly easy slot for players to get to grips with. The game’s 25 paylines are fixed, meaning the only adjustable button on the console controls your total bet amount. Clicking this option will launch a pop-up menu with a number of pre-set wagers for players to choose from, with these amounts enabling them to play the game from £0.30-£150.00.

Summary

If you’re looking for a beautifully designed Quickspin title with more of an adult theme, Beowulf is definitely the slot for you. The game both looks and sounds amazing and the frequent Grendel Attack re-spins can significantly boost your base game winnings while you hold out for those all important free spins – and that’s where the slot’s real money can be made.
