Beowulf, or at least the latest slot machine to bear this name, is being offered by Pragmatic Play, and it gives us their own interpretation of the popular story of Beowulf.
It’s one of the oldest poems from Old English and it tells us about a hero that travels to the king of the Danes, to help him defeat a monster, by the name of Grendel. Beowulf is the name of this hero, and you can see him on the reels of the game, along with the image of the Danish King and with a princess.
Besides the three main characters, the slot also features symbols with drinking horns, with rings and longboats. The final four symbols are the low paying card suits.
Pragmatic Play might not be a name that everyone will recognize, but the developer has a relatively large collection of slot machines and other casino games to offer.
Over 80 titles are available for use on mobile devices, out of the 150 that they’ve put out so far. They translate their games in 17 different languages and as a result a lot of countries will have access to them. I’ve found their games to be quite enjoyable, at least the graphics are very good.
How To Play It
You’re going to see a slot machine with 40 pay lines here. The 40 lines will get 40 coins or more each round, reaching a maximum of 400 coins if you choose the highest setting of 10 coins per line. The value of the coin can be in the range of $0.01 to $0.50. The line bets maximum value is $5, while for 40 lines you can end up spending $200 at most.
The betting system is not typical, but it’s not that hard to understand either. We’re seeing buttons flanking the Play button, the one that replaces the more typical Spin. The graphics are good, and I’ve seen a lot of attention being poured into them.

Though it seems to be a regular symbol most of the time, the image of Beowulf is also the only one that is capable of forming a combination that starts from either side of the screen. That means that while most symbols need to appear in consecutive order from the left, this one can also do it from the right side.
Wild symbols are included among the regular ones, and they can be used whenever they appear in a position which could be better used by a regular symbol. They can basically act as a substitute, but only for the regular symbols.
The Super Respin feature may trigger in certain situations, when you have the Beowulf symbol stacked on all four positions on reel 1. The respins get only empty positions or Beowulf symbols.
The Beowulf icons are locked in place when they appear. You get at least three respins. At the end, all the Beowulf symbols will form combinations and get you paid.
In addition to the respins, there are also 10 to 20 free spins, which are activated with help from the Shield scatter symbol. The rewards offered in the game can be at 1x, 5x or 25x the bet, in addition to the free spins.
Beowulf will form combinations that pay up to 2,500x, so up to $12,500 cash. You can get a lot of these wins at the same time though, at least during the Respins.
Beowulf is a slot machine that is in the usual note of the games that Pragmatic Play designs, meaning that it will be fun to play.
