Focus on Excalibur Slot
Old folklore told that King Arthur’s sword Excalibur had magical powers, enabling the holder to perform feats of heroism and extraordinary power.
The slot game of the same name is a rather more laidback affair. With a lilting soundtrack and fun cartoon-style graphics, this slot is more ceremonial tunic than full suit of armour.
However, you’ll be feeling pretty mighty if you can trigger the free spins round in Excalibur, where up to 30 free turns are available – each played with a 3x multiplier.
Excalibur has the classic five-reel, three-row set-up on screen and there are 20 paylines fixed in place, so you will need to factor that in when deciding upon your stake per spin.
There are four different coin amounts that you can modify, meaning that you can spin the reels for as little as 0.01 or up to the maximum of 80.00. The biggest payout is 120,000 coins, and so your stake will determine the ceiling of how much you can win.
Excalibur falls into the low-to-medium volatility category among the many NetEnt video slots, with an RTP of 95.08%.
Winning Symbols on Excalibur
As you may have guessed, Excalibur takes characters from the classic Medieval tale to populate its reels.
The likes of Lancelot and Guinevere are here, as is the mysterious Lady in the Lake, the evil Morgana and the Black Knight, while Merlin the Magician will show up occasionally and perform a few tricks.
If you’re lucky, King Arthur himself will appear on your reels to help create some of the game’s biggest main game payouts.
Aside from those basic symbols, there are a couple of special icons to look out for. The standard wild will replace all other symbols apart from the scatter and the Golden Wild (more on those in a moment), to create winning combinations, which are boosted by a 2x multiplier.
The Golden Wild will sporadically appear on the third reel. It boasts the same powers as the standard wild wins, but using the Golden version is subject to a 4x multiplier.
And three or more of the scatter symbol anywhere on your reels will trigger Excalibur’s free spins round.
Bonus & Free Spins
There are free spins galore available in Excalibur, and the number you’re given will depend on how many scatters triggered the bonus round – three scatters earn ten free spins, four reward players with 20 free turns and the full set of five grants 30 free spins.
These are played under the normal rules, with the rather attractive addition of all wins being enhanced with that 3x multiplier.
