Excalibur is a mythical adventure themed slot, created by NetEnt. It has 5 reels and 20 paylines, with bets starting from 20p per spin. Themed around the legendary sword of King Arthur, this slot features wilds, Golden wilds and a very special golden chalice which can lead you on the way towards some free spins.
The Legendary British leader continues to fascinate us even today, hundreds of years on, with his magical sword. NetEnt’s Excalibur slot brings us the precious sword and the knights as we embark on this quest for prizes. With glowing candles to either side of the reels and some very interesting, or perhaps familiar characters in between, there are prizes of up to around 150,000 available for some lucky spinners.
Our reels are laced with gold, and with Celtic patterns between the reels, it looks the part indeed. Let’s see what goes on inside the reels.
Lay your Sword
Placing your bets for the Excalibur slot is relatively simple. All of the 20 paylines are in play throughout, so you just need to decide how much to bet against each of them.
The coin value bet decides the coin bet per payline. Ranging from 1p to £1, your overall coin bets can vary between 20p and £20 per spin, it is up to you.
To add some extra weight to your bet, you can increase the bet level. Between 1 and 4, whichever bet level you choose will be multiplied your coin bet to create your total bet.
For example, if you increased your bet level to 4, with a coin bet of 20p per spin, your total bet would be multiplied to 80p per spin. If you were to win, your prize would also be multiplied by 4, for the bet levels.
The King’s Wins
Match three or more of the same symbols on a payline to win. The more you match, the higher the prize.
With a game centred on King Arthur, it would be rude not to have him as the most valuable on the reels. Landing five-of-a-kind on the reels could award you a maximum payout of up to 750 times your coin bet.
The wizard, who is, in fact, Merlin,with his magical glowing book, is the second most valuable. A full five Merlin match on a payline could pay out up to 500 times your bet.
The Knight and Arthur’s Queen in an embrace can also award you up to 500 times your coin bet for landing the maximum of five matching symbols on a payline.
Next up is the ‘Lady of the Lake’ who you will notice easily. She is literally walking through some water. The Lady of the Lake and the other woman in the pink dress with crazy hair are equal in value. Landing five identical symbols of either of these women could pay out up to 250 times your coin bet.
A knight riding a horse as lightning strikes them is the last of the high-value symbols, awarding up to 200 times your coin bet for landing a full payline of them.
As usual, the lower-value symbols in the Excalibur slot are the card values, from Ace to 10. The maximum awards for five of the same values on a payline range from 100 to 150 times the coin bet.
There are some very special features in the Excalibur slot which can help to boost your prize fund or make more from a single spin.
King Arthur’s Excalibur is the Wild symbol here. The Wild can substitute for any of the standard symbols in the game. This can make way for the creation or extension of paylines, should they land in the right place. Any winning combos you make with a Wild will have their prize doubled.
If you manage to land two or more Wilds on the same payline, you may even be looking at a win in itself. The ultimate goal would be to land five on a payline, where the prize is a whopping 10,000 times your payline bet.
A step up from the classic Wild, the Golden one pays that little bit more. Any wins made with a Golden Wild can pay out with a 4x multiplier. Yes, any wins with this symbol will be quadrupled!
Filled with a red liquid, the Golden Chalice is the treasured Scatter symbol. Landing two or more of these can pay out a prize, up to the sound of 500 times your total bet!
Landing 3 or more of these symbols will also trigger free spins. You will be awarded between 10 and 30, depending on how many symbols you land.
Any wins during your free spins are trebled, too.
The Excellent Excalibur
While there are magic themed slots, royalty themed slots and so on out there, this is the first we’ve come across which focuses on one of the other characters. From the sword in the stone to the mighty Excalibur, there is lots of history around King Arthur, whether you know his story or just his name.
The Excalibur slot has a great balance of royal essence with something slightly mystical, keeping us intrigued throughout the play.
Return to Player (RTP) of this slot is 95.08%. With medium variance, any wins should be decent, rather than very small or massive.
