Get swept away to medieval times and mysteries with Excalibur, one of Netent’s fantasy slots telling the story of King Arthurs’s legendary sword, Excalibur. And even though the tale of the sword in the stone has been retold countless times, it never gets bored. Not surprising that Net Entertainment got inspired by the story and designed another exciting video slot. Get drawn back into medieval times and enjoy all Excalibur is offering including Wilds, Golden Wilds and Free Spins.
Books, films, cartoons and television series have been telling the story of King Arthur’s sword and you would think people get bored at one point, but this is not the case with Excalibur. And it seems to be a perfect theme for a video slot game, especially when designed by Net Entertainment.
A medieval tune constantly plays in the background, creating the perfect atmosphere while the symbols are telling the tale of the sword in the stone including King Arthur himself, Merlin the Wizard, Morgana the witch, the Lady in the lake, Guinevere, Black Knights and of course Excalibur, the sword in the stone. And while all characters are attended, the perfect background sounds plays, it’s time to get the reels rolling while the Wild, Golden Wild and Free Spins can be responsible for enchanting profits.
As usual for Netent video slots, also Excalibur offers you a wide range of betting options including 20 bet lines which can be activated separately. This means you can already play with a minimum bet of 0.01, but as always I highly recommend to activate all 20 bet lines as they are responsible for your winnings. The more bet lines activated, the higher the chance for you to win. Once all bet lines are activated, bets will start from 0.20, but can be easily increased thanks to the many bet levels and coin values. Typically for the modern slots designed by Netent, the four bet levels and seven different coin values will give you the option to play with all kind of bets, depending on your budget. Of course all bets are available in different currencies as this depends on the Netent casino you decide to play the Excalibur video slot.
While Gallic knots and carvings around the reels complete Excalibur’s design, the rest of the excitement has to come from the many extra features this video slot has been provided with. A Wild can be of great importance to a video slot, so why not two of them? Not only a regular Wild provides you extra chances to win, so is the Golden Wild appearing on the third reel only. Both Wild symbols have one thing in common, they substitute for all other symbols in Excalibur, except Scatter symbols. Though there are some slight differences between them as the regular Wild doubles the wins it’s involved with, while a Golden Wild symbols will even quadruple your winnings.
Although two Wilds can be of great help regarding your winnings, the Scatter is for sure the most important symbol in the Excalibur video slot. The Golden Chalice act like Scatter and can appear anywhere on the reels. Two of them will be responsible for a Scatter win which will double your total bet. Three or more Scatters will provide Free Spins, a nice addition, but three, four and five Scatter provide respectively a x5, x25, and even a x500 Multiplier.
Once three or more Scatters appear anywhere on the reels in the main game, 10, 20 or 30 Free Spins will be activated. During Free Spins both Wilds are activated too and another Three or more Scatters will activate additional Free Spins. And while these Free Spins won’t cost you a thing, winnings will be added to your balance and before they are, they will also be tripled thanks to a x3 Multiplier active during Free Spins.
Back in time
Although the tale of the sword in the stone has been told many times before, in many different ways, the subject lends itself perfectly for a video slot. Give Net Entertainment a random subject and they will manage to create another cutting-edge video slot. This also goes for Excalibur as Netent took an in depth approach by including original characters, a perfect background sound and noises, while two Wild symbols assure extra winnings and keep you busy during the main game. Though this game wouldn’t be as interesting as it is now without the Scatters. Probably you would have preferred a bonus game over the Scatters, but once you managed to get five Scatters, including an impressive Scatter win and 30 Free Spins, you won’t be complaining anymore. So take your chance, go back to the Middle Ages and enjoy the atmosphere, so recognisable for that time, to escape todays reality, even if just for a short while.
