Join the legendary King Arthur in Forsaken Kingdom, an epic sword and sorcery themed slot created by Rabcat. It’s a superbly designed 5 reel, 20 payline slot that comes with the Round Table of Fortune Bonus feature that offers big multiplier prizes as well as a free spins feature. Start your mediaeval quest from between 20p and £40 per spin.

Visually, Forsaken Kingdom is as good as you’ll find anywhere – the 3D imagery is video game quality and superbly done. Likewise, the sweeping score which wouldn’t sound out of place in a Hollywood blockbuster.

Set against the backdrop of a ruined castle and overseen by the fearsome warrior Arthur, the reels include lower value 10, J, Q and K symbols alongside a castle, the Black Knight, King Arthur himself and the mighty sword Excalibur which is the most lucrative symbol, awarding payouts of up to 1,000 times your total stake.

Guinevere is the wild. She appears on the middle reel only but can land in a fully stacked formation to fill the whole of that reel. There are a couple of special, instant win bonus prizes on offer if you land specific symbol combinations. Land Arthur and the Black Knight on the top row on the same spin for a bonus prize. Arthur and Guinevere on the top row also triggers a bonus extra.

The shield symbol is the scatter – whenever you land 2 of them on the same spin, you’ll collect a knight on the round table meter under the reels. When you’ve collected all 12 knights, you’ll trigger the Round Table of Fortune feature. Each place around the Round Table is awarded a multiplier value. The specific prize awarded depends on where the light stops. The higher the stakes you play at, the bigger the potential multipliers on offer.

Land 3 or more shield scatters on a single spin and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature and with it between 5 and 12 free spins. There’s no added extras here but all instant win bonus prizes can be won here which can make it lucrative.

As far as volatility goes, we found Forsaken Kingdom to be in the medium range – you should get plenty of play for your investment here but still have a shot at capturing something decent if luck is with you. Forsaken Kingdom is as good looking a slot as we’ve come across – the design is terrific and the animations lovely and smooth. The features aren’t quite as mind blowing but they’re solid enough and keep the action flowing nicely.

The shield symbols come along at regular intervals so you won’t have to wait too long to trigger the Round Table of Fortune feature The free spins were a little harder to come by. The stacked wilds help things long in the base game too.

Even if mediaeval themed slots normally pass you by, it’s worth checking out Forsaken Kingdom – Rabcat has shown just what it’s possible to create with the visuals of a slot. Hopefully other developers will take notice and create equally impressively designed treats. I also recommend you try some of Rabcat’s other titles with Dragon’s Myth recommended.
