The Wild Beast of Crete

Felix Gaming takes us back to the world of Ancient Greek mythology in this thoroughly modern online slot.

The main characters bring to mind the legend of the Minotaur and Theseus who followed the thread of Cretan princess Ariadne to escape the monster’s lair. The difference here is that the monster helps us by being a wild which stacks producing winning lines.

It appears at random on reels 1, 3 and 5 holds the line and triggers a re-spin, up to three are available. There is also a gold coin scatter symbol which pops up on the reels 1, 2 and 3, triggering five free games.

During these free games Ariadne and the Minotaur hold reels 1 and 5 respectively and substitute for all symbols apart from the scatter. Appearing in a winning combination the Minotaur offers a re-spin in this mode.

The 5x3 reel set offers 243 win lines with the potential of a 5000 coin win on a single spin.

Theme, Graphics & Soundtrack

The designer takes us back to the world of Greek myth, and the story of Ariadne, Theseus and the Minotaur. Although the myth does not mention riches, there are some on offer here via the boldly designed symbols.

The cartoon characters reflect the darkness of the myth, while the playing card symbols are a reminder of Greek letters.

The reels are set inside a Greek Doric frame which sits on a background of snow-covered mountains.

The soundtrack is upbeat, and forms a good background to the exciting story as it unfolds on the reels. It features Greek instruments familiar to anyone who has ever visited the country.

The Wild Beast of Crete Review

This is an interesting game from Felix Gaming, and in free games mode with two stacked wilds it can be rewarding. The big drawback is that it is hard to land the scatter symbols. In the base game you can go through a number of spins before landing any kind of win, let alone a feature, and so if you are wagering at a high level your bankroll can be seriously eroded.

The low RTP means that you really have to find your way into the game with low bets, and this may explain why the game is not more popular among players. The theme is well thought out and reflected well in the graphics, especially the stomping Minotaur when he pops up to generate free spin. If you are prepared to play cautiously and learn more about the game while playing in free mode, it could appeal to you.
