Slip back into the Dark Ages of British history through the enlightened tale of the famous sword, Excalibur-as told through the animations and sounds of Net Entertainment's 5-reel, 20-payline video slot game. All your favorite characters are here, from King Arthur to Merlin the Magician, all in a cartoonish animated style that will remind you of your favorite childhood storybook.
Excalibur promises to work great on your laptop or computer via Mac, Windows, or Linux operating systems.
Naturally, the game is fully centered around the classic tale of King Arthur. The background sounds inspire the feeling of walking through a medieval marketplace, with horses whinnying, voices chattering and a flute being played in the distance. Winning lines are heralded with a burst of regal trumpeting.
Excalibur's symbols are rendered in a cartoonish style and keep true to ancient Celtic design. The lower-valued symbols are the 10, J, Q, K, and A painted in white on top of colorful family crests or shields. Higher value symbols feature the characters from the King Arthur story. Obviously, the King holds the highest ranking symbol. He's followed in descending value order by Merlin the Magician, Lancelot and Lady Guinevere embracing, the Lady in the Lake, Morgana, and the Black Knight.
A couple of Wilds feature heavily in the game of Excalibur. The basic Wild showcases the famous sword Excalibur, and when it's part of a winning payline, it swoops out of the stone and swirls upright to a fanfare of music. It substitutes for other symbols, except for the Golden Wild and the Scatter. Wins that result from the Excalibur Wild double via a 2X multiplier.
The Golden Wild will only appear on the 3rd reel and will substitute for all other symbols except the Scatter. It has the power to quadruple your win with its generous X4 multiplier.
The main bonus feature of Excalibur is scoring Free Spins by landing three or more Scatter symbols. These symbols feature the golden goblet known as the Holy Grail, filled with red wine, and entering Free Spins is accompanied by energetic drumbeats. Landing on three Scatter symbols at once will give you 10 Free Spins, four Scatters grants you 20, and five, a generous 30 Free Spins. Win while playing in Free Spins mode and you'll find your winnings subject to a 3X multiplier a great way to quickly build up your bank.
Excalibur offers flexible wagering options, with 20 bet lines and four bet levels to help tailor the amount you wager. Coins range in value from 0.01 to 1.00, making your minimum bet per spin a mere 0.01 and the maximum, 80.00. Win up to 120,000 coins at once.
Playing Excalibur is a very straightforward slots experience. Its control panel is NetENT's standard offering with clearly labeled buttons and clear digital display windows. This makes it easy to keep up with your current bet level, coin value, cash and coins remaining. Reels spin a little more slowly than you might be accustomed to, but the paylines are clearly marked with gemstones set in gold along the sides of the playing screen. Advanced autoplay can be programmed to spin anywhere from 10 to 1,000 rounds at one set bet, and stop at a certain monetary wins or losses, or when Free Spins are earned.
Excalibur will work great on most operating systems. On the laptop or desktop computer, play is fully compatible with Windows, Linux, and Mac operating systems.
