The story of King Arthur has been told in a number of different ways, with many having provided different variations of one of the most famous kings to have ever existed. Of course, one of the most popular stories is of him pulling the Excalibur sword from the stone.
Quickspin have taken inspiration from the story to produce one of their latest titles and our Mighty Arthur slot review will highlight to readers as to whether the developers have managed to do it justice with the gameplay they offer bettors.
Mighty Arthur slot game is played on a grid that contains five reels and features 20 winnable paylines; all of which are fixed. There are three rows in which symbols can appear on those aforementioned five reels, therefore players who have experienced a number of slot games will not need to worry about its appearance.
Quickspin have made this slot game widely available to players of all financial budgets, as bets between the values of R0.20 and R100 can all be placed, whilst they have also kept their trusted ‘Autoplay’ feature available for those experienced bettors who like to see the reels spun for a period of time uninterrupted. Inexperienced players can still use this feature, although it might be worth testing it out in the Mighty Arthur Free Play version above.
There are a number of icons available on the game’s paytable that can be related to one of the many different stories to have been told of King Arthur over the years. The low-value icons are the playing card symbols of 10 to Ace and each of them provide modest payouts.
The more-rewarding icons in the game, though, consist of chalices, helmets, mystical books and the king himself. However, Lady Guinevere provides players with the biggest rewards as five of her on a payline will provide a prize of up 7.5x the bet placed on the spin.
One of Mighty Arthur bonus features comes via the form of the slot game’s Wilds. These icons can substitute all other icons on the grid and help to create winning combinations along a payline. However, they can also create their own wins when three or more of them appear on a line and will equal the prizes paid out by Lady Guinevere as they can appear on each of the five reels, as well.
In addition, Mighty Arthur slot game features two special expanded Wilds that can help to boost winnings. Merlin can show up on any reel and has the potential to add a further two to six Wilds in additional positions on the reels randomly if he fully covers the reel he appears on. Arthur can also appear as a special Wild, although he only appears on reel three. If he covers the entirety of the reel, then he will expand into a icon that is 3×3 and will cover the whole central area of the gird, thus guaranteeing some potentially huge payouts.
The last of the bonus features that we found during our Mighty Arthur slot review was that there is a free spins feature that can be triggered when three bonus Scatter icons appear on the reels. Players will be rewarded with 10 free spins, although they have the potential to win more by retriggering the game when it is active.
The free spins feature is played on a special set of reels in which players will find it rather easier to land the special Wilds, as these will always nudge themselves into position.
