The first question that you may be asking is just exactly what is a gryphon? Well it’s not your usual kind of creature that you will find in a number of slot games. Instead what we have is a cross between an animal theme and fantasy. That’s because a gryphon (usually spelt ‘griffin’) is half eagle and half lion. How that comes about is beyond me but if there’s some cross breeding programme going on I bet it only happened once.
This is another great release from Novomatic who keep on producing enjoyable slot games for us all to enjoy. If you’re a fantasy fan, then this is definitely going to be high on your list of games to play with plenty of other leading fantasy figures on show too. We’re in the kingdom of Winalot (which I thought was a brand of dog food) where the gryphons are causing havoc for its inhabitants.
Gryphons Gold has five reels, three rows of symbols and a total of just nine paylines that hopefully will provide you with plenty of winning combinations. Those nine paylines aren’t a fixed amount so before spinning the reels you have to decide how many to play and your stake. Just work out a budget you can safely afford to lose and enjoy playing the game. You can play this game from as little as £0.01 and as much as £90.
Above the reels we can see the Golden Gryphon logo and in the left and right corners there are two gryphons wings with a red ruby between them. Symbols include a unicorn and when this forms part of a winning combination there’s a nice touch of animation. We see the unicorn standing in a field with a glowing sunset in the background. There’s a couple of elves, some toadstools, a magical looking castle and a princess. We also get the nine to Ace playing card symbols which are the lower paying symbols in this game. Perhaps one too many in my opinion and I’d much rather see something more theme-related.
The wild symbol here Is the gryphon, well it is his game. This really is an important part of the game as the gryphon can substitute for other symbols to get you some winning combinations. There’s also some animation with the wild when it gets you a win. Five of the gryphon symbols on an activated payline will win you 9000x your line stake, just missing out and getting four is no disaster either as that pays a 2500x multiplier. Despite its magical qualities the wild can’t sub for the scatter symbol which is a magic path. You’ll think it’s magic too when it gets you into the bonus round and earns you some free spins, more about that shortly. Five scatter symbols anywhere on the reels pays a tasty multiplier of 4500x.
When you’re new to a game it’s important to do a bit of research before playing it for real. Look through the paytable which is full of handy information. Also have some free games to get used to how the games runs.
If at least three of the scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels then you are awarded 15 free spins. Now this free spins round is definitely worth triggering because any wins you get during it will be tripled. Hopefully it’ll be the higher paying winning combinations that make their way onto the reels.
The game also has a gamble feature. This allows you to try and double your win five times all by correctly guessing the colour of the next card. The option comes along when you get a winning combination. Now you don’t have to go for this, just remember that. If it’s a big win you’ve just had it’s really best to just take it and get on with the next spin. That’s because if you get one choice of next colour wrong, then you lose all your winnings
Another good game from Novomatic, something we’ve grow to expect over the years. It has a good theme, the soundtrack is ok and the symbols attractive enough. The added animations are a pleasant touch. There are some good wins to be had here and the triple wins in the bonus round are definitely appreciated. As ever just be careful with the gamble feature and don’t just hand back your wins.
