The world of fantasy hosts a wide array of fantastical creatures. Among the mythical creatures is the griffin, a creature part lion and part eagle. Gryphon’s Castle, an online slot game product of Mascot Gaming, pays tribute to this winged creature of legend for players to play with real money.
The slot game’s setting is a royal throne room with the color scheme of green and gold. Stone pillars frame the forefront with blue mist wafting before it. It is a stone chamber with a circular window above an empty throne with red cushions. Two green banners with golden stripes hang on either side of the throne. This background is primarily obscured by the slot game’s main screen. These details are visible when the game transitions between its main game screen and the scatter screen. In the game’s forefront are two green banners with the griffon in cloth of gold and green. Blue mist wafts in front of it. Two metallic griffin statues rear and face towards the slot game’s main surface.
Gryphon’s Castle consists of five reels and three rows, reducing the number of paylines from the traditional 40 to 20. Small, round knobs outline the outer reels, lighting up whenever a payline is paid out to the player. The casino deposit sits nestled at the bottom of the reel to track the rise and fall as the players play for money. Those who play have the lowest wager being $0.20 with the largest wager being $40.
What makes Gryphon’s Castle unique is its departure from the traditional slot symbols. The slot symbols include a red, bird-like eye, a skull wearing a jeweled crown, a griffin ring, and a book with a green crystal embedded into its cover. In addition, four symbols of the traditional card suites are part of the game’s symbols. Metallic in nature, the suites appear as a red diamond, a blue clover, a red heart, and a blue spade. Having these suites represented in the game echoes the game of chance when one decides to play for money and dare the keep of Gryphon for its riches. In the case of the player, it is the chance that the casino deposit grows in the favor of the player.
The game’s wild symbol is a griffin in a portrait-like frame with green eyes that glow whenever it appears on the reel. A green shield with a golden griffin’s face looming out with glowing, green eyes serves as the scatter. The scatter triggers when 3, 4, or 5 scatters appear at the same time on the game board. 15 free spins are given to the player with the chances of additional spins possible if three or more scatters appear.
Players can identify ways to gain real money from the information location that are three lines towards the bottom left of the game screen.

Overall, Gryphon's Castle offers a game to play for money with a fantastical element of the medieval setting.
