The fabled legend of King Arthur and his sword Excalibur are the theme of this popular release from Play’n GO. Your play takes place against the dark torchlit backdrop of Camelot, King Arthur’s legendary castle. There’s also a roaring fire which should warm you up, after all, those mediaeval castles are cold places! The icons on your transparent reels are highly detailed and hand drawn too. Hats off to Play’n GO.
The slot has 5 reels and 20 bet lines on which the player can compose combinations associated with prizes of up to 2500 coins and you can spin these legendary reels from 0.10 to 100 a go.
The game’s highest value icons are made up of characters from the myth and include King Arthur, Lady Guinevere, Sir Lancelot and Merlin, while your lower value symbols are coins inscribed with 10, J, Q, K and A.
The Holy Grail is your wild icon and it will replace all other standard symbols to help you form extra winning combinations; while Excalibur the sword is the scatter symbol and plays a VERY important part in this slot.
Getting to the bonus round in the Sword and the Grail slot is easy. You need at least 3 Excaliburs to enter, but this is no ordinary free spins round. It has 5 stages with great winning potential if you’re lucky to unlock all 5.
This is done by collecting swords that land on the reels. Stage 1 is available after 3-5 swords and has an active x2 multiplier wild. You progress to the next stage with 6 collected slots, upping the multiplier wild value to x5. Eleven swords give you an x10 wild, while the maximum of 18 add an x100 wild.
This is where the slot truly shines and offers the best winning potential. With a bit of luck, you can win the maximum of 10,000x the bet at Stage 5 in the free spins round.
