Excalibur Slot Review
The Excalibur slot has 5 reels and 20 paylines and is powered by Net Entertainment – the game has simple yet sharp graphics and animations. Legendary King Arthur had a magical sword called Excalibur. The game is based on King Arthur and his friends (Merlin, Guinevere and Sir Lancelot, Lady of the Lake, Morgan, Mordred) in the Celtic Otherworld looking for the Holy Grail. You can play from as little as 20p a spin to as much as £80 a spin.
The most valuable symbols are Excalibur and the golden chalice. 5 golden chalice symbols multiply your bet by 500 times your stake, 4 chalices multiply by 25, 3 chalices multiply by 5 and 2 chalices double your bet. If you get 5 Excalibur swords an active payline you are awarded with 1,000 times your stake. The number 10 symbol makes a winning combination with just 2 symbols, all other symbols require 3 identical symbols to win
The minimum bet amount is 20p a spin and the maximum being £80 per spin. I found the Excalibur slot to be a medium volatility game as wins are frequent but not that big – the best way to make money is through the free spin bonus with its multiplier (like so many games these days).
The Excalibur sword is a wild multiplier symbol. The Excalibur wild symbol replaces regular symbols to complete winning combinations and multiplies the winnings by 2X. The Excalibur sword cannot substitute for scatter and golden Excalibur wild symbols. Multiple Excalibur wild symbols on an enabled payline create winning combinations but the payouts are not multiplied.
The gold chalice symbol is a scatter symbol and does not need to be on an enabled payline to win. The gold chalice scatter symbol can be placed anywhere on the reels to complete winning combinations, as long as at least two gold chalice symbols are there. Winnings are calculated by multiplying the Gold Chalice symbol combination payout by the total number of coins bet.
The Free Spins feature is activated when you get 3 or more gold chalice symbols appearing anywhere on the reels in the main game. You receive a number of free spins where wins are tripled (i.e. 3x multiplier). 3 gold chalice symbols give you 10 free spins, 4 chalices get you 20 spins and 5 gold chalice symbols awards you 30 free spins.
Additional free spin can be won with 3 or more scatters but these wins are not tripled. During Free Spins, activated pay line wins from wild and golden wild symbols are multiplied by the wild multiplier as well as the free spins multiplier.
The golden Excalibur wild symbol appears only on reel 3 and replaces all symbols, except scatters, and multiplies your win by 4X when replacing regular symbols. Only one golden wild multiplier is applied to bet line wins with both wild and golden wild symbols appearing on a winning line.
Excalibur slot is a great game to play, the risks are not too high and the wins are fairly frequent. If you like slots based on fantasy you will love this game. You can win an impressive 1,500 times your stake in the feature which makes the potential for big wins possible. However, I’ve won just over 400 times my stake just once – it was a good day! If you like volatile slots, I also recommend Dead or Alive by NetEnt.
