Excalibur slot machine by NetEnt
King Arthur is a subject of numerous legends and is known to almost everyone around the world – since the very childhood we read books, watch movies and plays in theaters dedicated to the story of the brave and honest king. No wonder that such a famous gaming developer like NetEnt could not pass by this popular theme and fail to create a thematic slot. Excalibur is actually King Arthur's legendary sword, which was believed to have magical and mystical properties. Now take a spin and feel Excalibur in you hands!
Excalibur's features and design
The design of the slot is rather simple. In the bottom you see the functional panel with all the buttons you expect from a NetEnt's game: bet level, bet lines, max bet, coin value and of course the spin button in the middle. There's also an autoplay option which can be chosen to stop on any win, or after free spins are won (and also some other advanced settings).
It's a shame that the panel isn't stylized after the slot's theme but everything you see in the reels makes up for it. In 5 reels with 20 paylines you're going to find different beautiful symbols. What's surprising, even the play cards icons are themed after the epoch.
Apart from that, you'll see icons of several warlocks and female magicians, a brave knight with a lady, a dark knight on a horse and of course King Arthur himself. For getting 3 same icons on an active payline you may get up to 25 credits, for 4 symbols – up to 100 and for 5 – up to 750.
But the most important symbol is Excalibur – it is a wild that can substitute for other symbols except scatters and golden wild. It's the most lucrative symbol – 4 icons award you 2500 and 5 same icons – fantastic 10,000! Golden wild can appear only on the third reel and acts the same. The scatter is the Holy Grail and it pays you up to 500 credits but its greatest function is triggering 10, 20 or 30 free spins for 3, 4 and 5 icons respectively.
To sum up, only graphics and sound effects make Excalibur slot unique but only to some extent, since the bonus system is too simple and the number of features is rather small. But nevertheless the game is worth your attention – just take a spin and see!
