You should always look on the bright side of life – and that's the song that will be playing every time you spin the reels of the brilliant Monty Python's Spamalot slot.
The now famous West End musical comedy was adapted from the Monty Python and the Holy Grail film, and slot game creators Playtech have incorporated everything that's great about the Arthurian Legend parody in their brilliant slot game version.
The starring role definitely goes to the Progressive Bonus Round which offers playability that few slots can match. It is split into 4 acts, and each one is triggered by Bonus Symbols simultaneously appearing on reels 1 and 5. The first act is Storm The Castle in which you must choose to employ your attacking knights on 1 of 6 strategic positions. You must then wait as the French Army throw cows at you from the castle. If they miss you win a prize and another pick. If they hit your bonus hopes are squashed, literally.
Act 2 is None Shall Pass, and in it you must battle the Ridiculously Brave Knight who is blocking King Arthur's Path. You will try and strike the knight 4 times, and each time you take off a limb you will win a prize. However, each time you miss the x5 multiplier will be reduced by one. At the end of the bonus your prizes will be multiplied by the remaining multiplier.
Knight Who Say Ni is Act 3, and the Knights are demanding a sacrifice of a shrubbery. Bring them a shrubbery to be offered a prize which you can collect or choose to try again, with 3 possible rounds.
The Killer Rabbit awaits in Act 4, and he's waiting behind some rocks. Your aim is to throw grenades at the rocks to kill him. To see if you were successful you must send 6 Knights 1 by 1 to pass the rocks and, if the knights don't get eaten by the rabbit, you win a prize for each of them.
As well as the brilliant Progressive Bonus, there is a strong supporting cast of other prizes and bonuses. 3-5 Monty Python Scatter Symbols will award instant prizes of between 3x and 250x your total-bet, and will also trigger 10 free spins in which you can win one of two Holy Grail Jackpots by lining-up 5 Jackpot Game Symbols. You will then fight your way through 6 levels by picking a symbol in each level. Each successful pick awards a prize, though beware the foot that stamps out your Jackpot hopes. Reach level 6 and there are just 2 symbols to choose from, which will award either the Holy Grail Jackpot, or the Slightly Less Holy Grail Jackpot.
Holy Grail Wilds shouldn't be missed either as 5 of them award an instant prize of 5,000 coins, whilst they also substitute for all the base game symbols to keep that bank balance boosted with more winning combinations. The characters that will guide you through this brilliant slot are King Arthur, Sir Lancelot, Sir Robin, Sir Galahad and the Lady of the Lake, and lining-up 3 to 5 of their symbols will win you up to 600 coins – so always look on the bright side of life!
