Chivalry is far from dead in the world of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Borrowing from themes from the Celtic Otherworld and British folklore, the story of King Arthur evolved to include Merlin the Magician, the quest for the Holy Grail, and an enchanted sword called Excalibur. Arthur proved himself worthy by pulling the sword from the stone and breaking the spell.
NetEnt brings this magical story to its 5-reel, 20-pay line video slot machine called Excalibur. Do you have what it takes to find the Holy Grail and discover the riches of Excalibur? Let the quest begin!
Basic Game Experience for Excalibur
Playing Excalibur is pretty straightforward. There aren’t any separate screens or bonus areas that open up. The gilded 5×3 reel set is bordered by flickering candles set in front of a stone wall. Background noises from a medieval township can be heard with carriages rolling, horses neighing, birds singing, and an occasional flute playing. The calm is interrupted by majestic, triumphant music with each win.
The common symbols are A, K, Q, J, and 10, which appear as family crests. The special symbols are colored illustrations of familiar characters that appear in King Arthur’s tales, which include Sir Lancelot and Guinevere, Merlin the Magician, the Lady of the Lake, the Black Knight, Morgan Le Fay, and King Arthur himself
The Excalibur sword is a standard wild symbol that appears on any reel and multiplies the win by two when it substitutes for another symbol. The sword is pulled out of the stone and spins around when it is a part of a winning line. The wild symbol does not substitute for the Holy Grail scatter symbol or the Golden Wild. If there are two or more standard wild symbols, they do not multiply with each other, but rather they have their own payouts at the following rates:
2 wilds: 10
3 wilds: 250
4 wilds: 2,500
5 wilds: 10,000
The Golden Wild is a gold Excalibur sword that appears on the middle reel and multiplies winning lines by four. It replaces all of the symbols except for the scatter symbol, including the standard wild symbol. The Golden Wild and standard wild do not multiply with each other. Instead, the Golden Wild substitutes for the standard wild symbol making the entire win multiplied by four. The Golden wild also does not multiply the payout for multiple standard wilds, so the 5-wild rate of 10,000 is not multiplied when it includes the Golden Wild.
2 Holy Grails: 2 times the bet
3 Holy Grails: 5 times the bet plus 10 free spins
4 Holy Grails: 25 times the bet plus 20 free spins
5 Holy Grails: 500 times the bet plus 30 free spins
The Bonus Feature
Once three or more scatter symbols appear, the associated number of free spins is awarded with a three-times multiplier. Gameplay continues much the same as regular play, only every win is multiplied by three (except for the number of additional free spins if three or more scatter symbols appear and retrigger more free spins). The potential here is enormous if five standard wilds appear during the bonus round and are multiplied by three.
Please note that five Holy Grails will give you 500 times your bet plus a three-times multiplier during your 30 free spins. Getting five Holy Grails and then getting five wilds during the free spins would be a huge win.
How to Play in the United States
Excalibur is primarily an online game, so you can play it at certain online casinos where gambling isn’t restricted by local gambling laws. Regulated gambling sites like BetMGM Casino, Tropicana Casino, DraftKings Casino, and PokerStars Casino offer a wide selection of online slots. Check your local gambling laws to find out if online gambling is restricted in your state.
Final Thoughts About Excalibur
Without understanding how the payouts and symbols work, Excalibur may seem like a no-frills game even for someone who is a big fan of King Arthur lore. The payouts initially seem pretty low even for the special symbols. The game really sets itself apart with the potential for the payouts for the wilds and scatter symbols, which are much higher than even five-of-a-kind of the special symbols. Five of the King Arthur symbols appearing during the bonus round with the three-times multiplier and including the Golden Wild in the pay line would still be less than the five wilds or the five Holy Grails. If you haven’t tried Excalibur yet, make playing this game your quest and see if you can prove yourself worthy of Excalibur and find the Holy Grail.
