With Christmas festivities approaching, Kalamba Games have decided to give one of their most popular games a new outfit. We didn’t get the chance to go over the original title, so now we can score two birds with one stone. It seems that Kalamba Games are obsessed with dragons and griffin’s, as they have now decided to make the Griffin’s Quest Xmas Edition. We will review the core Griffin’s Quest slot and we will also take a look at what kind of changes have been implemented with the Xmas Edition.
We hate to be anticlimactic right from the get-go, but Griffin’s Quest Xmas Edition’s only changes are at the visual department. So essentially this is the same Griffin’s Quest slot, only in a new, more festive outfit. But perhaps it’s for the best, as we once again get to relive the wonderful release that we enjoyed a couple of months ago. Especially pleasing is the return of big 26,032x max payout, this should make up for a proper Christmas gift. Time for the Griffin to take flight once more, although now looking more like Rudolph the Reindeer, than a fearsome beast.

Griffin’s Quest Xmas Slot Review
Gameplay and Design
First of all, we can take a look at what is different for Griffin’s Quest Xmas Edition. The background music is quite similar, although now it is more intense for some reason, you would expect Christmas to be more relaxed, but we suppose not. You can also hear some jingle bells in the background. The scenery on Griffin’s Quest Xmas Edition is a snowy and cosy village. The 6x5 game layout is covered with snow and decorations, while our main character Griffin has some Christmas lights on its head.
Rest of the game elements are pretty much as they were before, so if you are fairly familiar with the original title, you won’t read anything particularly new in the next upcoming paragraphs, but it doesn’t hurt to refresh our memory. Griffin’s Quest Xmas Edition has 6 low paying symbols and 5 high paying symbols, including the Griffin. This slot comes with 2400 different ways to win, this, of course, is the result of the distinctively shaped game layout. You will need at least 3 symbols to produce a successful combination. Each regular Griffin’s Quest symbols has a split version, which counts as two or three matching symbols. Griffin’s Quest Xmas features 3 different Wilds. These Wilds can appear regularly or with a multiplier of 2x or 3x.
Don’t let the Christmas lights and decorations fool you, Griffin’s Quest Xmas Edition is a high volatility slot, that sometimes tends to be quite brutal, we are talking about getting a bonus feature and winning a big fat zero type of brutal. But if you manage to play your cards right then we are facing one of the most appealing payouts of 26,032x. RTP on Griffin’s Quest Xmas is 96.50%, but this percentage can rise on the HyperBonus. Bet range as before is 0.60 – 100. Griffin’s Quest Xmas Edition is available to play on all devices.
Griffin’s Quest Xmas Edition comes with 2 standalone bonus features. First up, the Wheel Bonus. This feature is initiated by 3 or more Bonus symbols. In general, arbitrary wheel spins have been very appealing in our modern days. Wheel Bonus provides that excitement of getting a random prize instantaneously. This Wheel Bonus offers instant cash prizes, in a form of a multiplier or different variants of Free Spins.
Moving on to the Griffin’s Quest Xmas main prize, we have Free Spins. During the main game, every spin charges up the meters on the right side. These meters display the spin amount and the current multiplier. Free Spins come with different progressive levels and initials spin, with the max amount being 25. Lightning symbols add extra Free Spins.
• 2 symbols add 2 Free Spins
• 3 symbols add 5 Free Spins
• 4 symbols add 8 Free Spins
• 5 symbols add 10 Free Spins
Free Spins on Griffin’s Quest can also be bought straight away with HyperBonus option. There are four different Free Spin variants which all come with different price points.
Griffin’s Quest Xmas Edition begs a question, was this remake really necessary? The only difference between these games is small visual adjustments, like added snow, decorations and music. It’s also a bit strange how Griffin’s Quest was selected for the remake, as there is no real correlation between gryphons and Christmas. If you love Christmas and you’re all about the Christmas spirit, then Griffin’s Quest Xmas Edition is just what you might need, but otherwise, it’s best to keep good things as they were and stick with the original Griffin’s Quest.
