Magic and Mythology
The griffin is a mythological creature that comes up a lot on medieval heraldic elements. Supposed to be half eagle and half lion, the griffin was well known in Europe. The fierce creature was well known for its bravery and its ability to steal small livestock. Unlike the dragon the griffin was never considered to be evil, and was revered everywhere. A griffin had the head and wings of an eagle, and sometimes the front feet. The hind half was all lion though, big enough for people to ride on.
Great Griffin the slot pays homage to this mythical beast with many magical symbols which relate to it and various other medieval things. The lowest paying symbols in the game are all theme based, you will not find any deck of cards or poker symbols in this game. The feather, the scales, herbs and a pestle and mortar are the lowest paying symbols with 100 times your line stake. Potions and a book will get you 125 times your stake. Candles and an egg are worth 150, with crystals and a griffin’s claw being worth 200 times your take for five of a kind.
The Great Griffin himself is the games wild and scatter symbol. He can be found in two formats. The first is a close up of his head which is the scatter. This will also launch the free spins round if you find three or more of them anywhere on the reels. Here you get to choose between three different options. The first is fifteen spins plus a three times multiplier. Second is ten spins plus a 5x multiplier. Finally you can pick five spins with a 10x multiplier. During the free spins the potion meter will slowly decrease.
