The setting for The Sword and The Grail is a chamber in a grand old castle. Joining the lower value coins are a wizard, a prince, the queen and the king. His majesty is the most lucrative standard symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 in combination for a payout of 2.5, 5 or 25 times your total stake.
Potentially even more rewarding is the grail which is the wild. This pays up to 50 times your total stake per payline as well as substituting for all standard symbols. The wild could also come with a multiplier attached. These can strike at random and deliver a payout boost of 2x, 5x, 10x or even 100x.
The main feature is the Free Spins feature which is activated by landing 3 or more of the sword scatter on the same spin. You’ll start with 5 free spins with all wilds coming with a 2x multiplier. Collect swords to work your way through the levels.
Once you have 6 of them (including the swords from the triggering spin), you’ll progress to the next level. Another 5 free spins are added to your tally and all wilds come with a 5x rather than 2x multiplier. Amass 11 swords and another 5 free spins are added and the wild multipliers rise to 10x. With 18 swords in the meter, you’ll go through to the final level. Another 5 free spins are added and the wilds all come with 100x multipliers attached.
The likeliest route to tracking down these mediaeval riches comes via the Free Spins feature where the wild multipliers can have a big impact. As you’d expect, getting those big multipliers live is a tricky proposition. In keeping with most slot games in the Play ’N Go catalogue, the variance here is extremely high – it does have maximum payouts to match of 10,000 times your stake per spin.
If you enjoy the big swings on offer from volatile slot games, then The Sword and The Grail should appeal. Well designed and offering simple but potentially exciting play, this is a very playable take on a classic theme. I would also suggest you try 300 Shields by NextGen Gaming which offers potential multipliers up to 300x in the feature.
