The Symbols Lead to the Treasure
The symbols on the reels are mostly tools of the sorcerer-colourful potions, along with a scale, spell book, feather, candles, crystals, magical plants, and the Griffin's egg and, for good measure, a stone cup. There is also the Mysterious Lady
of the Castle and the Griffin.
The wild symbol is the Griffin. As such, it can substitute for any other symbol except the scatter symbol, and possibly turn non-winning spins into winning ones. Whenever the Griffin helps complete another symbol's win, the prize is doubled. In
addition, anytime you get 5 Griffins in a row on a single spin, you win the base game's largest fixed jackpot of 50,000 coins or C$5,000. Unfortunately, the fixed jackpots for 5 of a kind of anything else (except the scatter symbol) are much
smaller. The second highest fixed jackpot is only C$200.
But wait. This game also includes a randomly appearing Griffin Wild Bonus Round. This might happen just after what appears to be a non-winning spin. The same wild symbol, the Griffin, comes out of nowhere and randomly flies across the screen,
attacking the reels with its claws, possibly turning one or more losing symbols into winners. Then, as the Griffin finally flies off, you hear a piercing shriek.
As if that's not enough, typically you only find one scatter symbol in a game, but Great Griffin has two of them. Yes, the Griffin, or more precisely the Great Griffin Logo, is one of the scatter symbols. Five of them on one spin award you with
200x the amount of your bet, up to a maximum of C$1,000. However, all you need is three to trigger another bonus, the Great Griffin Free Spins Bonus Round.
