Beat the Beast: Quetzalcoatls Trial is the latest edition in the Thunderkick Beat the Beast series. Perhaps the first thing you think when seeing this games title is, what/who is Quetzalcoatls?! Well, he’s an Aztec God, a “feathered serpent” kind of like a dragon who was the boundary maker between the sky and the earth. Anyway! Read on for the full review of the Beat the Beast: Quetzalcoatls Trial slot to see if we thought it’s any good or not.
Quetzalcoatls Trial is a decent enough addition to the Beat the Beast series. The max win and high volatility gives the potential for some very high paying bonuses. However the base game could be seen as a little dull and it’s all about landing the free spins round, which is where this slot shines. The success of Pink Elephants 2 which has the same bonus feature suggests that Quetzalcoatls Trial may well get a fair amount of playtime from slots fans.
- High Payout potential of 5,555x
- Excellent Free Spins Bonus Round
- Base Game Lacking in Variety

If you can reach level 5 you will have all premium symbol removed except for Quetzalcoatls himself.
