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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
