Age of the Gods Glorious Griffin is an online video slot that was released in May 2020 by the industry-leading game makers Playtech. There are already more than a dozen games in the series, and this one is as good, if not better than the rest. Glorious Griffin is inspired by Greek mythology, and the story and gameplay focuses around the half-lion, half-eagle, gryphon character.
This top-rated online video slot is played across a 6×4 set of reels and has 4096 ways to win. The exciting gameplay features the chance to unlock lots of free spins and win one of many progressive jackpots. You will have the chance to win £100,000 from the ultimate power jackpot, so there is lots to play for! Finally, you should know that you can start playing from as little as £0.20 per spin and it works on all mobile, tablet and desktop devices.
Graphics and Theme
The game’s home screen features the mythical gryphon character standing proud on top of a mountain, coated in gold armour. The title font is also bold and gold. It matches the style of the other games in the Age of the Gods series. When you load the game screen, you’ll notice that you have entered the Griffin’s mountain top lair which is full of treasures. It’s set high above the clouds, and you’ll be looking out onto a golden hour view. In front of this stunning view are the reels which are within a golden border. The reels themselves are filled with playing card symbols and symbols that match the ancient Greek setting.
The background music is slow and dramatic and will transport you into a world of fantasy. It reminded me a little of the Game of Thrones theme tune. When you hit spin, a theatrical drum roll begins, and you can hear the reels swoosh as they spin. You’ll know when you’ve hit a combo because you can hear your winnings being counted; hopefully, it’s a sound you will hear a lot!
Glorious Griffin Symbols
The playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K & A are the low paying symbols of the game with a maximum payout of 120x your stake for six of a kind kings or aces. The high paying symbols are made up of a shield, a helmet, a treasure chest, an egg and the gryphon. Six of a kind of the gryphon will payout 400x your stake. There is also a wild symbol that can substitute for any of the symbols except for the free games symbol.
Blue fire expanding symbols
You’ll notice that some symbols will be randomly surrounded by blue fire as you spin the reels. If they land on your screen as the reels stop spinning, they can expand in all four directions to help you make winning combinations. This will only happen if it beats any other winning combos that you might have landed. The blue fire becomes even more active in the free spins game, appearing 3x more often. It will never appear on the symbols of the wild or free game, just the regular symbols.
Free spins game
To trigger the free spins game, you’ll need to land at least three of the free games symbols anywhere on your screen. The more you land, the more free spins you’ll unlock, up to a maximum of 100 free spins.
- Three free games symbols = eight free spins
- Four free games symbols = 15 free spins
- Five free games symbols = 25 free spins
- Six free games symbols = 100 free spins
You can trigger even more free spins during the free spins game, giving you the potential to win huge prizes without having to put any of your cash down. The re-triggers values are below:
- Two free games symbols = five additional free spins
- Three free games symbols = eight additional free spins
- Four free games symbols = 15 additional free spins
- Five free games symbols = 25 additional free spins
- Six free games symbols = 100 additional free spins
Age of the Gods jackpot
The jackpot game can be triggered randomly on any spin. However, players betting with higher stakes will have more chance of unlocking the game. You will be taken to a new screen filled with 20 coins. The aim of the game is to match three of the same jackpot symbols. The symbols match the four different jackpots, and you’ll win the jackpot that corresponds with your winning combination. See below for the four types of jackpot and the potential winnings:
- Power Jackpot – £50+
- Extra Power Jackpot – £500+
- Superpower Jackpot – £5000+
- Ultimate Power Jackpot – £100,000
