This feature occurs randomly in the main game. When the sky above the reels turns red, Grendel then appears on a number of places on reel five, which then spins. When the spin stops, Beowulf steps out and slashes at the monster, revealing a number of free spins. The number of spins is determined by the number of Grendel symbols that appeared on reel five. At the same time, stacked Wilds will appear on the reels, and remain locked for the duration of this round.
If you land three or more of the Dragon Scatters anywhere on the reels, the free spins bonus round will be activated. Three symbols appearing will give you three free spins, and four Scatters appearing will give you ten free spins. Five Scatters will give you twenty free spins. If Beowulf wins his fight with the Dragon, you will be awarded an additional three free spins. Finally, after the fight with the Dragon, Wild Sword symbols will hold on to the reels until the free spins run out, and one health bar is deducted from the Dragon’s health bar. When a Wild Dragon appears, the sword is removed, and one health bar is removed from Beowulf’s bar. One Dragon symbol has the power to remove only one of the Sword symbols.
