King Arthur is a lot of fun to play, although it has taken the minimalist approach when it comes to bonus features. This just means every time you do hit the bonus, it means that much more.
Microgaming has done it again in the King Arthur pokie. This one transports you back to the time of King Arthur, and is sure to provide legendary entertainment.
You may not find the Holy Grail or end up with the Round Table if you play this game, but for bettors looking for an entertaining slots game with potential payoff, King Arthur is worth taking in. The game is a product of Microgaming, a company that not only gave the world it first online casino, it continues to be a provider of high quality gaming software. King Arthur pokie is a 3-D, 5 reel, 20 payline pokie game,where players can place bets ranging from one to fifty cents. The game features both video and audio effects, with 3-D buttons used for reel spinning and placing bets. Its largest jackpot is $50,000, which is non-progressive.
The game's “plot” follows highlights from Arthurian legend, and players are directed to choose different paths (sometimes with intervention from King Arthur himself) that results in different rewards for the players. Touchstones from the legends, such as the Holy Grail and the Sword In The Stone can result in payouts of varying amounts, and if players follow the path to Camelot itself, additional rounds and winnings are possible.
The game's symbols all reflect the Arthurian theme, which include the Round Table, Camelot, Merlin, Arthur, the Holy Grail, and Excalibur (sword) in addition to letters and numbers. The Arthur symbol multiplies all winnings by two, the Merlin symbol can be substituted for all other symbols with the exception of scatter and bonus ones, and the Camelot symbol indicates this game's one bonus round. Players with five King Arthurs can win a line jackpot of $10,000, while players with five Merlins can increase the value of their line bets by $5,000. Excalibur serves as the game's Scatter symbol, and landing on it can increase winnings by thirty-two percent.
The game's single Bonus Round involves the entry of players to Camelot. To trigger this round, players must come up with three or more Camelot icons. Once in Bonus Round mode, players are given the choice of “guiding” King Arthur home via four separate paths. Each path has a separate prize amount, which can be increased by four percent, depending on choices made by players.
This is one of the best offers around for playing pokies for real money.
