Become a Knight of the Round Table!
The legendary tales of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table have always been popular, not just in England, where the stories actually take place, but also around the rest of the world. These mythical tales of chivalry, bravery, honour and adventure never go out of style, and they have inspired countless novels, plays, movies and video games. They have also inspired the development team at Play’n GO
to create a fantastic new online slot called The Sword and the Grail
, which delivers stunning graphics, a cinematic soundtrack and maximum volatility as it takes players on an epic quest in search of the Holy Grail.
The Holy Grail?
Those of you who aren’t overly familiar with the legend of King Arthur and his knights might be wondering what the Holy Grail actually is. Well, the truth is that nobody knows for sure, but traditionally it has been viewed as an object that is imbued with miraculous powers, and is therefore able to give its owner a range of benefits, such as health, happiness and even eternal life. Many stories – including the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade – portray the Holy Grail as the cup used by Jesus at the Last Supper, in which case drinking from the cup is the key to receiving its benefits.
The Sword and the Grail
The Sword and the Grail is a five-reel video slot
which takes place in front of a mist-shrouded castle or within the castle itself, in the same room as the legendary round table. The background artwork is stunning, and the talent of the game designers shines through just as much on the reels, where the symbols include the letters T, J, Q, K and A stamped onto coins forged from different metals, Merlin the wizard, Lady Guinevere, Sir Lancelot, King Arthur, the famous sword Excalibur and the Holy Grail.
The Grail here is shown as a jewel-encrusted goblet of gold, and serves as a wild but can also appear as a multiplier wild with values of x2, x5, x10 and x100
. Excalibur appears against a shield and serves as a scatter which can help you to trigger an exciting Free Spins feature.
Whilst the visuals in this title are as impressive as they get, the cinematic score is also worth mentioning, because its gives the game an incredible sense of atmosphere. Add in some thunderous sound effects when you win a cash prize or activate a special feature and if you turn the volume up sufficiently your neighbours are more likely to think that you’re doing battle than playing a slot.
Four Levels of Free Spins
The Free Spins feature in The Sword and the Grail is triggered by getting three or more Excalibur swords on the reels at the same time
. There are actually four levels to this part of the game, and you start on Level 1 and progress to the next by collecting additional scatter symbols. The benefits increase with each level, so on Level 1 you will enjoy five free spins with a x2 multiplier on all wilds, and if you collect an additional six Excalibur symbols you will move up to Level 2, where you will get a x5 multiplier on all wilds and five more free spins.
Get another five Excalibur symbols to progress to Level 3 for another five free spins and a x10 multiplier on all wilds. Then, if you get a further seven Excalibur symbols, you will receive five more free spins and a massive x100 multiplier on all wilds.
All of that means you could enjoy up to 20 free spins and – if you are lucky – land some very impressive wins that even Merlin would be proud of.
A Genuine Work of Art
The Sword and the Grail plays like a dream, but it also looks like a genuine work of art, and there will be times when you delay a spin just to appreciate the amount of detail that has gone into it. This isn’t the only slot around which is based on Arthurian legend, but it is certainly one of the best, and is highly recommended. Visit your favourite venue which offers Play’n GO titles to take up your rightful place as a Knight of the Round Table and you could soon be on your way to a legendary win!
