The first thing that jumped out when we were playing the Gryphon’s Gold Deluxe slot machine was the beautiful design, the slot machine almost resembles a children’s fairy tale where creatures rule the earth. Look beyond the reels you will see a stunning landscape full of trees and a blood-red sky.
If you’re struggling to understand what a gryphon is, in mythology, the gryphon is a half lion and half eagle creature – with the bottom half resembling a lion and the top half being that of the eagle.
The Gryphon’s Gold Deluxe logo is sitting to the top of the reels in golden wings and your paylines are situated either side of the reels. Novomatic have designed the symbols on the reels to be in-keeping with the theme, symbols featured include card values of 9, 10, J, Q, K and A as well as toadstool, dwarves, castle, unicorn, fairy, a pair of trees with faces and the wild gryphon.
How Much Are You Happy to Play With?
You will need to set your bets before you start to play and thanks to the various betting options below your reels, you can do this with ease. Use the buttons to increase or decrease the paylines and the bet per line to get to the amount you are happy to play with.
Autoplay feature is present with all of the Novomatic slot machines and this allows you to watch the slot spin automatically. If you don’t want to press the start button every time you want to spin those reels, click the autoplay green button and tell the slot how many spins you want it to play on your behalf.
To win the maximum non-progressive jackpot, you will need to bet maximum stakes and spin in 5 of a kind of the wild gryphon symbols – this awards 9,000x your stake. To get the second highest payout, you just need 4 of a kind of the wild symbols on your reels to get 2,500x your stake.
Gamble – any win that drops onto your paylines will enable the gamble feature. If you want to see if luck is on your side, you can choose to gamble and try to double your original payline win. Guess the colour that the next suit will be from a deck of playing cards and you’ll win twice as much as your initial cash prize. Remember, this is a 50/50 game of chance, so if you lose – you lose everything.
Wild – the gryphon creature is the wild and replaces all other symbols on the reels bar the scatter to help form winning combinations. An example of this is; if a fairy falls on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 with a gryphon on reel three – you will be awarded 750x your stake because the gryphon wild will act as the missing fairy to complete the win line.
Scatter – this symbol is represented by the trees with faces on. You will be awarded a multiplier based on your bet for 2 scatter symbols on your reels. Three or more of these symbols and you will receive 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier attached. You have the ability to trigger more free spins by spinning in more scatter symbols during this round.
Lots of Ways to Win
Gryphon’s Gold Deluxe slot machine is a high variance game that offers plenty of different ways in which you can win. The vast majority of the wins come from the base game, but when you trigger the free spins, you have the ability to accumulate some nice wins, especially when the gryphon wild makes an appearance.
We love the ability to trigger more free spins whilst playing out your free spins and the ability to play low stakes and still win big made this slot machine a winner in our eyes.
If you are looking for wins in almost every spin, you won’t find them with this slot game because it only features 10 paylines, so wins will be few and far between.
