When The Sword and the Grail first begins, it’s clear to see that it is great quality graphics. The intense music plays while you are given the rundown of the game. It gets you geared up for the game. As you progress into the Sword and the Grail play space, the music gets more intense. It’s as though you’ve entered into a movie and you are the star.
It is based in medieval times with all your favourite characters. Knights of the round table kind of vibe with symbols to back up the theme. All the small details tie the theme together, making it believable and a highly enjoyable game to play.
I went with the autoplay option to get the game going. The mechanics are nice in the game with the reels moving quickly. I noticed a few interesting characters on the reels, along with royal card necks letters.
The game holds you in suspense when a sword symbols lands, which makes sense because when three of the swords lands, you earn free spins. There are grails that represent the glorious wilds in the Sword and the Grail.
- Lady Guinevere
- King Arthur – when he makes an appearance, you get x25 for your stake. You have to get five to win this big bonus.
- The Holy Grail – as the wild, it turns all the symbols into the Grail. If you get a wild line, this will up your stake by x50. Not only that, it boosts your wins with it’s a wild multiplier. This can be x2, x5, x10, or even x100.
- The sword – this symbol is your scatter in The Sword and the Grail. When you land 3 of the swords at the same time, you get 5 free spins. While you’re in the middle of your free spins, you’ll be collecting scatter symbols. There are 4 levels you can go through. Each level is going to increase your stake with multiplied wins.
- The levels include level 1, which gets you x2 your win. Level 2 gives you five more free spins and five multiplied wilds. To get this, you will have had to collect 6 of the sword symbols. For level three, you get five further free spins plus a x10 multiplier. You need to get five swords for this. If you manage to get another 7 swords, you will make it to level four. Not only do you get another five free spins but your multiplier is x100.
The quality of the graphics is one of the key highlights in the game. There is a real story line to it, which will keep your interest in the game. When a scatter or bonus symbol of some kind comes along, the game gets noticeably more exciting. It has high entertainment value and a great soundtrack. There is a chance for some larger wins in the game too, which adds to the overall excitement.
It is a high volatility game. While not as bad as some others that are similar to it, be cautious about how much you bet and how much you’re losing or winning at one time.
