The story of “Excalibur” is not new, especially in the United Kingdom. It’s a legendary sword of King Arthur that’s believed to have magical powers. This sword is also associated with the sovereignty of Britain.
That said, Pragmatic Play has decided to honor this iconic sword in the Excalibur Unleashed slot machine. This game uses the standard 5×3 gameboard set inside the enchanted forest. While inside the woods, you will meet the crew of animal heroes who will accompany you to find the sword and the 5,000x top reward.
In order to win a payout inside the enchanting forest, players must find at least three matching symbols on any of the 20 bet lines. Gamers can match the 10-A card royals and receive a payout up to 3x the stake. The bottle, sphere, king’s crown, and the two animal characters are high-paying symbols, rewarding players with up to 25x the stake.
The wild is arguably the premium symbol in this brand-new slot machine and can appear on reels 1 and 5 during the main game. If this happens, this symbol will expand to cover the reel and display a multiplier value. Players can get multipliers between 2x and 20x, which applies to any win with the wild symbol.
In the meantime, the wild also acts as the game’s scatter symbol for triggering the free spins mode. Players can join the bonus mode after the wild has expanded to cover reels 1 and 5. In return, this will grant gamers six bonus spins. Note that the wild multiplier values also carry over to the bonus rounds, increasing gradually with every winning combo. This boosts your odds of triggering the 5,000x maximum payout.
As is the tradition in most Pragmatic Play slots, Excalibur Unleashed houses a bonus buy feature for those who want to unlock the bonus spins instantly. You can pay 85x the stake for free spins and increase the RTP to 96.02%. In addition, the starting wilds will have multipliers up to 20x. But remember that the bonus buy and Autoplay features are not part of the branded slot in the United Kingdom due to regulatory reasons.
Excalibur Unleashed is the latest slot from Pragmatic Play, which boasts a library of over 300 titles. The company releases up to eight slot machines each month, with the month of April seeing the release of titles like The Red Queen, 3 Dancing Monkeys, and African Elephant.
