Look & Feel
Prepare to take a trip to the darker ages of English history where King Arthur, Merlin and Guinevere fill your reels with heaps of entertainment. Everybody knows the story of King Arthur and how he pulled Excalibur from the stone but not everyone has the luxury of re-living the story of old.
The backdrop of the slot is a dark room barely lit by candles. The reels while in block form remind of the round table as it is wood lined by gold. The symbols on the reels are all related to the theme and the highest paying symbols include King Arthur, Merlin, Sir Lancelot & Guinevere, Lady of the Lake, Morgana and the evil Mordred. The lower value symbols are made up out of the normal card value symbols K, Q, A, J and 10, but each is carved into a uniquely designed shield.
While some might say it’s over the top, the rich look and feel of the slot truly depicts the lifestyle of the rich and famous. Not everyone will find this slot enjoyable, it might just be a little over the top.
The wild symbol is a sword with green magic around it, the golden wild is plated in gold with light magic surrounding it and the scatter is a golden Goblin filled with red liquid.
Sound & Score
The soundtrack of the slot is typically a perfect fit and you’ll hear someone whistling a tune, people conversing in the background almost like they are at a tavern. And you’ll hear a horse complaining somewhere in the distance. When the reels spin the symbols ‘thump’ when they come to a stop. There are also a variety of winning sounds that sound similar to tournament sounds from back in the day. Overall, the soundtrack of the slot is nicely in line with the theme but at some point the horse, the whistling and the repetitive chatter will start to get annoying. Luckily you can mute the sound before it comes to that point.
Bonus features and Gameplay
The Wild symbol of this slot is the Excalibur sword. The wild replaces all other symbols on the reels except for the scatter or golden wild. Winning combinations formed with a wild will be multiplied by 2.
The Golden Wild:
The Golden wild is an extra wild featuring in the slot and is the Excalibur sword plated in gold. This wild only appears on reel 3 and replaces all other symbols except the scatters. If it forms part of a winning combination players will receive 4x their win.
The Scatter symbol of this slot is the Gold Chalice/Cup and pays the total bet times the multiplier. The scatter can be place anywhere on the reels to form part of a winning combination as long as there are two anywhere on the reels. The scatter symbol also triggers the free spins.
The amount of free spins and the total multipliers depend on the amount of scatters on the reels. Two scatters will get you a 2x multiplier, three scatters will get you a 5x multiplier and 10 free spins and four scatters will get you a 25x multiplier plus 20 free spins. Those lucky enough to land 5 scatters will score 30 free spins with a 500x multiplier! Players can trigger extra free spins but these will not be multiplied.
Is it worth playing?
Yes! Excalibur is a fun game to play that will awaken the knight in you. As kids we dreamt of not just being a knight at the round table but being the Hero that pulled Excalibur from the stone. With the Excalibur slot everyone has the chance to do so and win up to 1,500 times their stake in the process.
