Netent Excalibur Video Slot Review

In Netent video slot Excalibur, the many stories about the legendary medieval King Arthur are the centre of attention. The legends around this person, although opinions differ about if he ever really existed, are inspiration for many cultural expressions such as poems, theatre, books, paintings, movies etc. So it must have been the fame and notoriety of the King Arthur story that inspired Net Entertainment to base a timeless video slot on the saga, named after his supposed sword, Excalibur.

One of the most famous legends from the Middle Ages is the one about King Arthur. The story of this British king however seems to be quite simple; around the late 5th/early 6th century, he supposedly won an important war to prevent the Saxons from invading Britain. Through the centuries the legends about his courageous actions have been heavily supplemented and mixed up with other (unrelated) legends and stories.

As young boy, so it’s told, he managed to pull a sword out of an anvil to prove he was the rightful heir to the throne of Britain. He also, as chief of the Knights of the Round Table, is said to have received a magical sword, Excalibur, from the Lady of the Lake that would protect him, as long as he would leave it in the scabbard. Another story that includes King Arthur is one about the search for the Holy Grail that, in the end, would be found by one of his vassals, Sir Galahad.

Either way, whether King Arthur really existed or not, fact is Net Entertainment has managed to create an exciting video slot on the legends with which you can win chivalrous prizes.

Video slot Excalibur has 5 reels, with 3 rows and 20 adjustable bet lines. On the reels, various protagonists and items from the stories are depicted, such as the wise wizard Merlin, the Lady of the Lake, of course King Arthur himself, the sword in the anvil, the Holy Grail and the magical sword Excalibur.

The Wilds in video slot Excalibur replace all other symbols (excluding Scatter symbols) to create winning bet lines. Winnings formed with these Wilds pay out double. The Golden Wild can only appear on the 3rd reel and substitutes other symbols too, but winnings formed with these Wilds pay out x 4.

With 3 or more Scatter symbols, anywhere on the reels, you’ll receive Free Spins. Winnings out of the Free Spin rounds are multiplied x 3. During Free Spin mode, Wilds and Golden Wilds can appear and, when winnings are generated, both the Free Spin and the Wild multipliers are applied. More Scatter symbols will generate more (extra) Free Spins.

Video slot Excalibur is a very amusing Netent video slot that, besides many pleasant casino gaming sessions, can bring you legendary coin winnings. Try the game for free on the Excalibur video slot tutorial page or play the game “for real” in one of the reliable online casinos on our site.
