Go slots game revisits the legend of King Arthur, Excalibur & the
There are some online slots themes that are published and copied so
many times they become monotonous and boring. Then there are those
that attract audiences like bees to the sweet nectar of snapdragons
in the summertime, no matter how many times the tale is retold.
That’s the type of audience Play’n GO is hoping to tap into
with its latest digital slot machine, titled The Sword &
The Grail. If that name didn’t give it away already, the game
is themed around the fabled tale of King Arthur, his mysterious
wizard advisor, Merlin, and the two items for which is legend is told
time and again – the magical sword Excalibur and the Holy Grail;
the chalice from which Jesus himself is said to have drank at the
New Play’n GO Slots: The Sword & The Grail
The Sword & The Grail Slot is a 5×3 reel video slot with 20 fixed
paylines and a supremely high volatility with a max-bet payout
potential of up to 1,000,000 coins. Released two weeks ago at all
online casinos employing the Play’n GO suite of digital iGaming
content, it’s continued to maintain a front page, featured listing at
most casinos, where players are attracted to both the theme and the
favorable 96.53% RTP.
The game’s graphics draw players into the deep and dark realm of
Castle Camelot, although the musical score is surprisingly
lighthearted in comparison. The round table is the backdrop for the
game as the reels spin with King Arthur, Lady Guinevere, Sir
Lancelot, Merlin, and a collection of low-paying coins.
Holy Grail Wilds
The Grail is the wild. In its basic form, this golden chalice takes
on the usual role of replacing any standard symbols to create a
winning combination. However, the Grail can also appear with a
decorative banner depicting a multiplier of x2, x5, x10 or x100.
During the base game, any Grail can appear, with or without a
multiplier. During free spins, all Grail symbols land with a
multiplier relative to the number of swords collected.
Excalibur Free Spins
The free games feature is triggered when 3 or more Excalibur scatters
appear anywhere on the reels in a single spin. To start, players
receive 5 free spins with all wilds receiving a 2x multiplier. The
swords that triggered the free games are also collected in the
Excalibur sword meter above the reels. The first 5 swords collected
(including those that triggered the feature) maintain the multiplier
Once 6 swords are collected, players reach stage 2, awarding +5 free
spins and increasing the wild multipliers to 5x. 11 swords activates
stage 3, worth another +5 spins and 10x wild multipliers. At 18
swords collected, the 4th and final stage is activated, granting +5
more free spins and the highest 100x wild multiplier.
The crew at Play’n GO invites all to partake in this ever-fascinating
tale. “Glory and honour await you in the court of King Arthur, will
you rise to the challenge in the brand new Play’n GO slot, The
Sword and the Grail?”
