The legend of King Arthur has been told in everything from a seemingly endless musical to a Monty Python film. It remains a popular legend and now we have another slot game using the story to create a great game. This comes from Microgaming who are creating their own legend as fantastic producers of slot games.
Of course a reason why the legend is such a popular one is because it’s a story full of magic, good taking on evil and plenty of strong characters. Well you need to be strong to get that sword out of the lake. The game has a great look to it and on each side of the reels are King Arthur and Queen Guinivere. There’s also Arthur’s sword Excalibur hanging over the reels.
This is a five reel game that has 20 paylines for you to try and get some winning combinations on. The cost of playing the game goes from £0.01 to £200, a wide range so all players should be able to find a level they can comfortably play at.
Playing the game is fairly simple but a look through the paytable will help you get used to how the game runs. Also take advantage of some free games to build up some more experience of the bonus games without having to use any of your real cash.
Symbols in the game include the Holy Grail, the Lady in the Lake, a sword In the stone scatter symbol, Camelot which is a bonus symbol here and two wilds, namely King Arthur and Merlin. They can create winning combinations out of nowhere by substituting for other symbols apart from the scatter and bonus symbols. In the case of Merlin, that really is magic. Not so much as when Arthur completes a winning combination as that doubles the win, well he is the King after all.The rest of the reels are filled by the ten to Ace playing symbols but at least on this occasion they have a great look to them.
There are a couple of bonus games in ‘King Arthur.’ The easiest to trigger is the Camelot Bonus Quest Game and to get into this you need at least three of the Camelot bonus symbols on an active payline. Once that has happened you’re suddenly taken to a view of the legendary Camelot and there are a number of paths and entrances and these have multipliers attached to them. Your job here is to guide Arthur left or right but only for the first two choices, after that he can make his own way. Hopefully you’ll get a 4x multiplier but that doesn’t happen too often.
At least three of the scatter symbols get you into the Sword in the Stone bonus round. These can appear anywhere on the reels this time. Arthur has to try and get that sword out of the stone and if he can that gets you an extra multiplier. The number of scatter symbols triggering the round determines how many attempts you get. If you can get five and then manage a 100 per cent record in pulling the sword out of the stone then a 32x multiplier awaits you. Again though I’ve not been able to do this so perhaps Arthur needs to spend more time in the Camelot gym.
This game has a great look to it and is really enjoyable to play. The bonus rounds aren’t too difficult to trigger and there are some decent prizes to be won here.
