Return to the medieval days of King Arthur and his court at Camelot in this engaging video slot game, Excalibur, by NetEnt. Legend has it that Arthur was the son of King Uther Pendragon. Treachery forced Merlin the Magician, a friend to the king, to hide the baby boy where he could be raised safely. Meanwhile, Merlin embedded the king’s sword in a boulder with a spell to bind it unless removed by the one true king. As a young man, Arthur drew the sword and became king. He was given an enchanted sword by the Lady of the Lake. That sword was Excalibur and it helped him win in battle. He protected England from Saxon invaders around the turn of the 5th Century and later set up his court at Camelot to be ruled by Arthur and his knights, all equal in power, signified by their seats at a round table. Excalibur the video slot game gives you a feel for those days of yore with a graphic background fit for a king. Symbols include shields of the knights and beautifully detailed symbols for Arthur, Merlin, the Lady of the Lake, the sword in the stone, and more icons from the legend.
Along with the courtly graphic art, a low background sound sets the scene for market day in the realm, with people talking, a horse whinnying and a local musician playing a spritely tune on a lute. Whether you live in the village or anywhere else, it’s easy to get an introduction to the court where Excalibur the video slot game reigns. Excalibur offers five reels and three rows with 20 betting lines. Bet levels are adjustable and you can win on every one of them at the same time, with all winning bet lines added together in each spin.
The wild symbols replace all other symbols, except scatter symbols, to give you winning combinations. Winnings that include the wild symbol are doubled. Even better is the golden wild, which appears only on the third reel. It replaces other symbols, too, but payouts that include the golden wild are quadrupled. If more than one wild appears on a winning line, only the higher payout is applied. If you spin three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, you are awarded free spins. If you hit a pay line during a free spin, that win is tripled. Another feature of the free spin mode is the appearance of wilds and golden wilds, which also add to your winnings. Scatter symbols can also appear during free spins, which give you additional free spins.
You can play Excalibur for fun or for money. It’s easy to play this slot game that will entertain, amuse and keep you wanting more. If you need help keeping track of the payouts, don’t worry. Just click on any symbol and the payout will show at the bottom of the game. If your quest is successful, you could take home a payout of 120,000 coins to add to your castle (home) war chest.
