The Sword and the Grail Slot Review
Join the knights of the round table and help King Arthur to protect Camelot from invaders and you will earn your place on the court. The Sword and the Grail is a five-reel, 20-payline video slot that offers one addictive additional feature. Join forces with King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, Ser Lancelot and Merlin and pull the Sword from the stone, or drink from the Cup with other knights. Collect Excalibur Scatters to trigger the Free Spins feature and upgrade the multiplier up to 100x. Playable from £0.10 per spin, the Play’n Go title boasts exceptional visuals and an engaging soundtrack.
The reels are set on the round table, in Camelot. Sit at the round table with other knights and meet your companions on this adventure. King Arthur, being the king, is the highest-paying regular symbol. His wife, Queen Guinevere is next in line, and his faithful knight, Ser Lancelot is also there, as well as Merlin, the powerful wizard who helped Arthur take the throne. Playing cards on coins represent low-value symbols. The Cup, or the Grail, is the Wild that can substitute for all regular symbols, while Excalibur, or the Sword in the Stone, is the Scatter that triggers the Free Spins feature.
We all know that the legendary King Arthur was a strict, but a fair ruler. If you want to succeed in Camelot and keep your place at the round table, you will need to follow a few simple rules. The 2019 release is a five-reel, three-row video slot that benefits from 20 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts. Bet as low as £0.10 and as high as £100 per single spin. The control panel is pretty standard and offers all the usual options.
Land three or more Excalibur Scatters on the reels to trigger the Free Spins feature. You will start with 5 freebies and your goal is to collect extra Scatters during the feature to get bigger multiplier Wilds and get more free spins. Wilds can land carrying a multiplier on any spin, including the base game, but during the Free Spins feature, you will most certainly get multiplier Wilds.
Once the feature is triggered, you get a 2x multiplier Wild. Collect 6 Scatters and you will get 5 extra freebies and a 5x multiplier Wild. With11 Scatters you get a 10x multiplier Wilds and 5 more free spins. Finally, collect 18 Scatters to get a mouthwatering 100x multiplier Wild. Up to 20 freebies can be triggered.
The grail Wild is the symbol that pays the most, offering 50 times the bet for five of a kind. Wilds tend to land with multipliers, which can go all the way up to 100x. The biggest possible win is set at 10,000 times the bet in a single spin. Five King Arthurs on a single payline will get you 25 times the bet. The Sword and the Grail’s RTP is 96.53%.
The Sword and the Grail on Mobile
The Sword and the Grail is playable across all devices. The mobile version of the Play’n Go title works as a charm and it offers the same gaming experience as the desktop version. It doesn’t matter whether you play from the comforts of your homes or on the go.
+ Popular theme
+ Free spins with multiplier Wilds up to 100x
+ Stunning visuals
– Not easy to collect 18 Swords
– Could use a bit more action
Taking everything under consideration, the 2019 release is not the best game Play’n Go has to offer, but, it is quite good. We are action junkies and we feel that an additional special feature would have done the trick, especially because the theme of the game is the exciting story of King Arthur and the knights of the round table. Of course, the Free Spins feature is very good and the multiplier Wild will be very helpful, both during the base game and the Free Spins feature, where it can reach 100x.
