The legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table has seen its many iterations across all media, so it’s only fair that an online slot game gets its own. Net Entertainment took care of that and produced a visually striking homage to this tale set in medieval England. Prepare to take up the mythical sword of Excalibur and wield on your quest for Holy Grail.
“Excalibur” is a five reels, 20 ways to win video slot game. Being of medium volatility, it works best in player’s favor when played with max amount of paylines and with as high stakes as possible. The other way to go about it is to aim for free spins with big multipliers. Low value symbols are gorgeously frilly lettering upon authentic shields of this era. The high value symbols include the entire host of this old saga: Morgana Le Fey, Sir Lancelot and Guinevere, Merlin the Sorcerer, Black Knight, Lady of the Lake and, naturally, the man himself – King Arthur. Excalibur comes in two wild forms, green and golden, and there’s also the unavoidable Holy Grail as a scatter symbol.
The reels are set within a Celtic-like ornate carvings that make up for an extremely authentic feel of the bygone times, coupled with the fact that a subtle yet noticeable ambiance noise of a busy old English town square can be heard throughout. Whenever a winning combination is hit, symbols come to life and bombastic snippet of music seals the deal adequately.
Although deprived of ultra-fancy features like mini games and such, the game boasts a unique approach to wild symbols. Green Excalibur symbols will double any winnings, while golden ones – appearing only on the center reel – will quadruple it! So, that’s pretty cool. Also, the obligatory scatter symbol engages everyone’s favorite, free spins. And a very hefty amount of them, at that, making free spins feature truly shine here. If you collect at least three scatters, depending on the exact amount, you will be prompted to 10, 20 or 30 free spins – and each win will be counted three-fold! Aside from giving you free spins, Holy Grails also multiply your stakes: should you be that lucky to land five of them, your bet will be multiplied by whopping x500!
Not overly risky, but with just the right mount of hazard factor (should you forget yourself and your budget in a race for multipliers), “Excalibur” is a very satisfying slot game worthy of Net Entertainment portfolio.
