The game features 5-reels, 3 rows, and 9 fixed paylines, and is the fourth installment in the Beat the Beast series. The main focus on this slot is the bonus game feature where wilds give you orbs. These then fill meters up which transforms the mid-value symbols into the next paying symbol. You will get extra free spins on every symbol upgrade up until you unleash the beast symbol.
Symbols on the reels include the low-paying symbols which are your standard A, K, Q, J, and 10 royals. The high-paying symbols consist of cups, axes, crowns, and the Quetzalcoatl statuette. The Quetzalcoatl statuette symbol is the most rewarding and pays you 250x stake for 5 in combination. The Quetzalcoatl Emblem count as the wild and scatter symbol and this symbol substitute for every other symbol whether its in the base or free spins feature. Land 3, 4, or 5 Quetzalcoatl Emblem symbols to get a 2, 20, or 200x stake prize and at the same time trigger the bonus feature.
The bonus game consists of a 5 level round of free spins which also sees a green wild symbol come into play. It’s your job to collect these wild symbols whenever they land which then moves you up to the next level. Once you have collected 5 wilds, then the lowest symbol that is currently in play will be upgraded to the next mid win symbol on the paytable.
This slot is extremely highly volatile, but one would expect the max win of x5555 your total bet to be a bit more in all honesty. As you can imagine, looking at the bonus feature, it seems pretty easy to progress but for most bonuses pays around 20 – 70x your total bet. I won at most x300 even during final stage, but those premium symbols do not line for decent wins.
