If one can remember, Play’n Go released the Rise of Merlin slot this year, its first Arthurian-based game. The title was a hit, so the developer is releasing another slot game with the same theme. The Sword and the Grail progressive slot is now spinning at Play’n Go’s platforms and partner casinos.
CEO of Play’n Go, Johan Törnqvist, led the announcement to share some of the best features of the company’s new title: “The great thing about the Sword and the Grail is its challenging aspect. Winning is one thing, but you also have the chance to conquer the game by becoming the King of the Knights! Players are going to want to achieve that title and they’ll have lots of fun doing it so, let the games begin!”
Gameplay and Theme
The Sword and the Grail is a fiat and Bitcoin slot that highlights the usual setup of most Play’n Go titles: 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 fixed paylines. Despite the traditional look, it can offer multipliers of up to 100 times your original spin in the main game for only 10 cents to 100€ per spin.
Like the Rise of Merlin, The Sword and the Grail slot is also based on the famed fable “King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table”. The backdrop of the game is a mythical castle, and the symbols on the reels are represented by the Holy Grail, Excalibur Sword, Merlin, Lancelot, Lady Lady Guinevere, and King Arthur.
The low-paying symbols are low-value card numbers A, K, Q, J, and T. King Arthur himself is the highest-paying symbol, offering players payouts 25 times their original stake. The Holy Grail and the Excalibur Sword, meanwhile, function as the Wild and Scatter symbols, respectively. The Wild can replace all symbols except the Scatter.
The Sword and the Grail offers as many bonus features as the Rise of Merlin slot. Here, you can receive free spins and huge multipliers using the Holy Grail and the Excalibur Sword.
If you land multiple Holy Grails on a single wild line, you’ll receive payouts 50 times your stake. You can boost your wins with more symbols to receive 2x, 5x, 10x, and 100x worth of multipliers.
If you land 3 or more Excalibur Swords anywhere on the reels, you’ll get 5 free spins. You can collect more symbols and free spins if you reach different levels on the game. From level 1, you can proceed to levels 2, 3, and 4 to boost your winnings.
