Your total bet is defined by multiplying the two following values: your bet per line and the number of lines. Your bet per line is displayed in the Bet per Line window. The value changes each time you set a different total bet.
The number of paylines in Beowulf is twenty-five and it remains fixed. It means that you cannot change it throughout the entire game. Point the cursor to one of the figures to the left or the right of the reels to view how the lines run. Each figure corresponds to one of the paylines. For example, the number 5 corresponds to the fifth line.
The Win window displays the number of credits earned for the most recent winning combo. Click on the Spin button to launch one single spin. The button has a rounded arrow on it. Right below it you will find the Autoplay button. By clicking on it you will open the list with the possible number of autospins that will be carried out continuously without your involvement.

All of the multipliers earned for successful combos are multiplied by your bet per line.
Grendel Attack bonus option
Grendel Attack bonus option is launched at random. Once it is activated on one or several positions on the fifth reel, a green goblin shows up. Each of these pictures will award you with one extra re-spin.
Grendel Attack bonus option will award you with a random number of special Wild symbols. They will only remain active during the option and will look like golden wolves. Not only do the Wild symbols replace other icons except for the Scatter and the regular Wild, they also get fixed at the start of the Grendel Attack bonus option and remain active until the re-spins are completed.
Free spins in Beowulf
The free spins mode in Beowulf is triggered by 3 or more Scatter symbols landing on the reels. The Scatter is a picture of a green dragon, a sword and a shield.
The bet that you have placed prior to launching the free spins applies during this mode as well. You will get the following multipliers for the Scatters:
- Three Scatters – three bets
- Four – ten
- Five – twenty
Free spins will continue until Free Spin Dragon Fight stops.
Free Spin Dragon Fight bonus function
The number of free spins will be determined by the outcome of the battle between Beowulf and the dragon. One point is taken off the dragon's health each time a sword symbol appears. But each icon with a dragon that lands on the game screen takes one point off of Beowulf's health.
The sword symbol will stay fixed to its position until the dragon symbol is removed or until the round of free spins is over. The sword symbol also acts as the Wild. It can replace any other icon on the game screen except for the dragon or the Scatter.
Once the dragon symbol comes up on the game screen, it removes one sword icon, if there is one present on the reels. The dragon symbol will expand to take up the entire reel where it has landed. If more than one sword icon is fixed on the reels, each consecutive icon will replace the previous one. The picture of a dragon is also a Wild symbol capable of replacing any other icon except for the Scatter or the sword.
The Free Spin Dragon Fight bonus function is over when either Beowulf's or the dragon's health is totally depleted. You will get three extra free spins if Beowulf wins the battle.
This slot game has low variance. It means that you will be earning small winnings more often. Their amounts will be close to your total bet. Unlike an experienced player, it will not be that easy for a novice to figure out the abundance of bonuses featured in the Beowulf slot.
