Great Griffin Slot Machine Review

Great Griffin is a Microgaming video slot with 5 reels and 50 lines. It has a mystical theme with the Griffin, a legendary creature with the wings of an eagle and the body of a lion as the wild symbol. The game is strikingly similar looking to Griffin Gate from WMS gaming although the actual game play is quite different.

The Griffin symbols is wild and substitutes for everything but the scattered logos and the scattered Lady symbols. Getting five Griffins on any active line pays a nice 5,000 coins per spin bet per line or 50,000 coins if you are playing max bet. The Griffin also doubles any win it is a part of other than the wild pays themselves.

The wild Griffin symbol is also part of the games first bonus feature. The Griffin Wild Bonus can be triggered at the end of any spin and sends the Griffin flying across the screen. As it passes over the reels it adds extra wilds to positions on reels. The great thing is that this feature can award five wilds. The bad thing is that this bonus really slows down game play. It would have been good to be able to speed up this bonus.

After the top line win for the five wilds the second highest line win on Great Griffin is just 200 coins (400 coins with a wild). This means that the game does not really have any good mid level line wins on the base game which is a bit of a negative. In fact after the top 5,000 coin win the rest of the five of a kind pays come in at between 200 and 100 coins.

The Lady symbols are scattered and are the key to the Pick Me Bonus. They only appear on the middle three reels and getting all three activates the feature. You then get to pick one to reveal an instant prize of up to 50X your total bet. This comes in at a nice 25,000 coins so is the second highest possible pay on the base game. You can also get a second pick or reveal the "Win All" which awards all three prizes.

The Great Griffin logos are also scattered and are the key to the games biggest jackpots. Getting three, four or five awards the bonus with five paying a great 200X your bet or 100,000 coins if you are playing max bet. Once triggered you get to choose from three different free spin bonuses (Preview). The options are;

  • 15 Free Spins with Wins X3
  • 10 Free Spins with Wins X5
  • 5 Free Spins with wins X10

It's obviously a personal choice of which one you go for but clearly the biggest possible wins the game has to offer are only available if you play the 5 free spins with X10 multipliers. At this level you can win a big 500,000 coins with the five wilds. The bonus can be re-triggered and the Pick Me Bonus can also be won on the free spins. If you get five scatters as a re-trigger with the X10 multiplier you are looking at a 1,000,000 coin prize.

Great Griffin also has an Australian style gamble feature where you can try your luck doubling up your wins with either red or black or quadrupling your wins with the suits.

In the end Great Griffin is an interesting game. The Wild Griffin Bonus can lead to some nice wins but the fact that it slows down game play can be really annoying. The jackpots are also a bit hit and miss with some very big pays but no real mid level wins on offer during the base game. In the end this is one of those games that you'll either love or hate.
