The Lancelot slot machine is likely to appeal to all who love classic tales, especially medieval ones like King Arthur and the legends of Camelot. This video slot is part of the WMS G+ 5x4 slots series and is based on Lancelot of course, who was one of the most trusted and highly regarded knights, which explains why the legend has slot titles in his honor centuries later. This casino game was also based, at least partially, on King Arthur's Knights of the Round Table.
Oddly, King Arthur is conspicuously absent on this 5-reel, 40-payline Internet slot game. Nonetheless, Lancelot the slot is a well designed game with a relatively good amount of details included from graphics to features including stacked weapons, and characters straight out of medieval times. Symbols include Guinevere, Lancelot, Merlin, Excalibur the Sword, Knights, Crown, Helmets, Shields, Chestnuts, and Flowers. The graphics in this slot are definitely above average, at least when compared to other WMS slots that we have seen before. The music and soundtrack are however wanting, as they do not really add any value to the game at all, and can thus, be muted if necessary.
Both Guinevere and Lancelot act as slot machine wild symbols and they substitute all other symbols on the reels. As if that is not enough, both these wilds appear stacked on the reels, which can only mean more possibilities of forming winning combinations. More so, if both wilds are part of the 5 symbols that form a winning combination, half of the standard 1,250-coin jackpot will be paid.
Interestingly, the wilds also double up as scatters and they will see you through to the bonus round. To activate at least 5 free spins, you will need to get 2 wilds on consecutive reels starting from the far left. If you also get more wilds on other consecutive reels, then you will also be awarded with more free spins. Five wilds will see you win 50 free spins! You can also retrigger additional free spins that will be added on to your remaining free spins. All free spins come with a 2X multiplier. Unlocking 20 free spins with 4 consecutive reel wilds is a much easier feat than landing 5; however, don't let that deter you. Someone has to win!
There are a total of 40 adjustable paylines in this slot, and bets start as low as 0.40 coins and go as high as 200 coins. A 2,500 coins top payout is offered to the right combination. While this certainly isn't one of the highest paying slot machines, it still boasts a very respectable top payout.
Lancelot the slot is definitely a must-play slot game, as it offers an interesting story, great design, and some appealing stacked scatters/wilds that you should take advantage of. The game play is also pretty basic and will most likely appeal to new slot players, but will be appreciated by veteran slot players, alike. If you like Lancelot, you might enjoy include Hearts of Venice and John Wayne, also by WMS.
