Where to play
Design and Symbols
When it comes to the symbols, the high-value ones feature characters and objects from the legend of King Arthur. 10- A make up the low-value symbols. In addition, all symbols can appear stacked on the reels. The scatter symbol is a golden crown with the words bonus on it; when three of them land, they will award you 10 free spins and the symbol can only land on reels 1, 3 and 5.
The background music of Mighty Arthur reminded us of warrior music played in some film as soldiers were going to war. We guess this ties well with the theme of Mighty Arthur if they are really making their way to Camelot after picking up Excalibur.
Even though the special features are randomly triggered, the good thing about them is that they are triggered often enough to award you some wins.
Special Wilds Feature
The Mighty Arthur slot has two special wild symbols which can cover an entire reel. There is the Merlin wild and the Arthur wild, both can substitute for all symbols apart from the scatter.
- When Merlin lands stacked on a reel, he will add between two to six wilds randomly on your screen. More than one Merlin symbols can land at the same time, and thus the wilds added on screen will be grander, just like your wins!
- The King Arthur wild can only land on reel three. If it covers the entire third reel, then it will expand to adjacent reels. Thus reels two, three and four will be fully wild.
Finally, both Arthur and Merlin will always nudge to help trigger the features. By nudge, we mean that if a partial Arthur or Merlin appear on your reals, they will move to cover the entire reel and trigger their feature.
Free Spins Bonus
To trigger the bonus you need to land three scatters simultaneously on reels one, three and five. This will activate the free spins round which awards 10 free spins. Once you move into this round, your screen will change and you are taken to the legendary Excalibur scene. You can not re-trigger the bonus, however, both the Arthur and Merlin wilds are active during the free spins round.
Reviewers' thoughts on Mighty Arthur
What we found entertaining within the game is the special features, like the special wilds, which are not really noticeable in other slot games. One thing that we found a bit disappointing is the potential maximum win of this game; however, as a medium to low volatile game, we were not expecting much out of Mighty Arthur. When taking the volatility of the game into consideration, the king Arthur special feature took quite a long time to trigger. The merlin special feature triggered often enough to award you decent wins though.
