The Sword and the Grail is Taking You to an Adventure of Epic Proportions
The new game, just like Rise of Merlin, which hit the market back in June, draws its inspiration from the famous story of King Arthur. Titled The Sword and the Grail, the new release may bring a familiar theme, but it’s also the one players seem to enjoy very much.
Play’n GO’s game boasts stunning graphics and dynamic animations, which in combination with an excellent soundtrack create immersive gameplay.
The Sword and the Grail features a standard five-reel three-row layout, with a total of 20 paylines, while players will need to get a minimum of three symbols to start getting payouts.
On the reels you’ll encounter a wide variety of symbols, including the usual set of low-value playing cards, but also all the familiar characters from the famous Arthurian legend, such as the wizard Merlin, Lady Guinevere, and Arthur’s trusted knight, sir Lancelot, with all three of them being the high-paying symbols.
Of course, King Arthur himself will make its appearance on the reels. Arthur is the most lucrative icon of them all, awarding a payout worth 25 times the triggering stake for 5 of a kind across a pay-line.
The game is playable form a mere $0.10 stake, with the maximum wager going all the way up to $100 per spin.
As the title of the game suggests, this recently-launched slot is focused on the quest for Holy Grail, a relic originating from the earliest days of Christianity, and for centuries the subject of numerous myths and legends. It became a very popular theme during the middle ages, so it’s easy to understand why it found a place in the Arthurian legend.
When it comes to this game, the Holy Grail serves as the Wild symbol, substituting for all others on the grid bar the Scatter. It is also a very generous symbol, as landing all 5 across a pay-line will award a payout worth 50 times the bet!
A prominent spot on the pay-table is reserved from another important item from the stories of King Arthur, his legendary sword Excalibur. The sword acts as the Scatter, triggering the game’s Free Spins bonus round whenever at least 3 of a kind land anywhere on the grid.
Players will start the Free Spins round with 5 spins on their count, while additional spin can be collected across 4 levels of this feature, and the same goes for multipliers. Collect more Excalibur symbols and progress through the levels, with each new stage awarding 5 spins and a wild multiplier. Reach state 4 and you’ll receive a massive x100 multiplier Wild!
Commenting on the release of the new game, Johan Tornqvist, Chief Executive Officer at Play’n GO said the great thing about the Sword and the Grail was its challenging aspect, with players also having the chance to conquer the game by becoming the King of the Knights!
Tornqvist further said punters were going to want to achieve that title and added they would have lots of fun doing it so.
The arrival of this game follows the launch of Firefly Frenzy, which hit the market in late July.
