Based on the classic French novel by Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers is an adventure-themed slot from Quickspin. Focusing on the fortunes of legendary swordsmen Porthos, Athos and Aramis, this 5 reel, 20 payline slot comes with free spins, expanding wilds and multipliers. Join the Musketeers from between 25p and £100 per spin.
The first things to look out for in the base game are the jester wilds. When the wild fills a whole reel, it will also reveal a multiplier ranging from 1x to 3x. These can really come into their own when more than one wild appears on the same spin. Hit the 2x boost on two reels and any winning paylines will rocket up by four times your bet!
The Three Musketeers also comes with a Free Spins feature which is triggered when 3 or more sword scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. In addition to a payout of three times your stake, you’ll also be awarded 10 free spins. During the free spins, symbols will nudge up and down to make winning combinations. In the true ‘one for all and all for one’ spirit of the original, the Musketeers all substitute for each other for the duration of the feature making it that much easier to secure a winning combination.
The wild multiplier also feature during the feature. In fact they’re more likely to appear thanks to the nudges on offer. If only 1 part of the wild is showing it will nudge until the whole expanded wild appears. Once again you can give your payouts a handy boost thanks to the combination multipliers.
The action comes at a steady pace thanks to the expanding wilds and multipliers. The free spins hit more rarely but can provide some nice wins when combined with the wilds and One For All substitutions. The Three Musketeers is a visual treat. The graphics and animation are top notch, all played out to a jaunty little backing track which fits the mood nicely.
The overall variance is on the low side, offering plenty of play for your bankroll. If you enjoyed the book or the many TV and movie incarnations of The Three Musketeers, you’ll find plenty to like here. Even if you come to the French noblemen afresh, the quality visuals and rapid fire features should provide plenty of entertainment.
This game isn’t to be confused by the Playtech version of the same name. It’s not my favourite Quickspin slot though with other titles like Big Bad Wolf and King Colossus being more appealing in my opinion.
