Once again, the developers at Quickspin got inspired by a world-famous epic story to design an original and exciting video slot game.
This time, inspiration came from a work of literature set in 17th century France and starring a company of young, brave might fighting for justice sword in hand and forming a unique bond of camaraderie.
If The Three Musketeers is a famous and loved story all around the world, what would it look like as a slot game? To find out the answer, stay with us and read our full review of this one-of-a-kind creation.
Adapting The Three Musketeers into a slot game is an ambitious task, and Quickspin’s take on the famous story is an elegant blending of cartoon design and an elegant colour scheme.
Do not late the cartoonish characters deter you, the game has a truly elegant feel with the reels framed by roses and a peaceful, quaint country landscape extending beyond them. The reels themselves are full of details despite their black background. The Three Musketeers gives off a unique atmosphere that will seduce many players.
The soundtrack is a fun tune with classical accents that fits the game universe perfectly. You will be drawn to The Three Musketeers’ universe as soon as you launch the game!
Quickspin has the perfect recipe for an easy and straightforward basic gameplay, and The Three Musketeers are no exception to the rule.
The game is set on five spinning reels with three symbols on each of them. 20 fixed paylines run across the reels in all directions, and you will not be able to change that number. All you have to do before getting the game started is decide how much money you want to bet on the next spin. You can do that with the command button located right below the reels. Once you are ready, hit the yellow play button on the right side and cross your fingers! You future rewards will depend on your wager, so do not hesitate to play big to trigger bigger wins.
Try out the Autoplay mode to set the game on autopilot for a while, and watch the action unfold before your eyes. Your settings will be saved throughout, and you can switch back to normal mode at any time.
The reel symbols are what players usually focus on, and there are ten of them in The Three Musketeers.
The first few are based on playing cards (Jack, Queen, King and Ace). Their payouts are low but they appear frequently on the reels to give you more chances to score many winning combinations with them.
For more sizeable rewards, head for the character symbols. The first three Characters of the game bring in more money and a healthy dose of charm. Watch out for them! The Three Musketeers themselves, of course, top off the list. Each of them has a specific dedicated colour, and they can occupy the whole reel they appear on.
Beyond the basic gameplay, The Three Musketeers has more than one surprise for the players.
The Jester is a giant Wild card that can occupy a whole reel and replace any basic symbol. Even when only partially visible, the Jester will act as a substitute and help you create winning combinations. If a full Wild is part of a combination, a Multiplier reel will appear in its centre to boost your wins even further (up to x4).
The elegantly drawn Sword symbol is a Bonus card, which pays three times your wager and initiates ten Free Spins instantaneously. During the free games, Wild symbols will be given a gentle nudge up or downwards for a full effect. The Musketeers will also substitute for each other and maximise your chances to win the most valuable rewards.
The Three Musketeers is an original video slot game with an easy gameplay and great graphics. These are already good qualities for a slot game, but on top of all that the developers at Quickspin added fun Bonuses centred on the Free Spins feature.
This being said, the lack of a separate Musketeer-inspired mini game might be a surprise for some player. We could have easily imagined some sort of duelling game with some extra cash at stake. But overall, the Three Musketeers is a solid and beautiful game that will catch your attention, and hopefully make you richer.
