Mighty Arthur Slots REVIEW
Based on the legend of King Arthur and the infamous wizard Merlin, Mighty Arthur is one of the latest Quickspin slots on the market. It is a 5 reels, 3 lines, and 20 paylines video slot playable on mobile, tablet, and desktop devices, for both Android and iOS, offering a variety of features ranging from random wilds and expanding wilds in the base game to Free Spins as a Bonus feature.
Visually, the feel of Mighty Arthur is more of medieval-like or fantasy-like – the entire course of the game’s action takes place in a lush forest which is visible through the transparent reel set placed in a gold frame. With all the detailed graphics and visual effects, the Swedish-based game studio Quickspin have gained a reputation for creating one of the best visually looking games on the market.
Following the theme of the game, part of the symbols on the reels, i.e. the higher value symbols, in ascending order, include three symbols of identical value – the Holy Grail, Merlin’s spell book, and a knight’s helmet - followed by Sir Lancelot with unsheathed sword in his hand, and, finally, Arthur’s beautiful red-haired queen Guinevere and the Wild symbol, as the highest-value symbols. The low-value symbols in the game include the standard slot symbols 10, J, Q, K, and A, all with identical values.
A golden Wild, accompanied by two golden dragons facing each other, placed against a purple background is the game’s Wild. There is another wild representing Merlin casting a spell, and one additional expanding symbol representing King Arthur with Excalibur in his hands. Finally, there’s the Bonus symbol represented by a golden Bonus placed on a red shield with gold crown on it.
How to play
As with most slots, operating Mighty Arthur is very straightforward since all the buttons are placed at the bottom of the screen. The game offers 12 coin-sizes ranging from 0.20p to 100 Euros. You can choose your total stake either by clicking TOTAL BET and selecting one of the 12 coin-sizes or by using the UP and DOWN arrows on the right-hand side of the TOTAL BET button. The number of paylines is fixed and cannot be changed. To get the reels spinning, all you have to do is click the Spin button – circular arrow at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. The Autoplay feature – two inverted circular arrows on the left side of the Spin button - allows you to have the game spin a pre-set number of rounds automatically. The remaining number of rounds is displayed on the screen while Autoplay is active. You can stop Autoplay by pressing the Stop button. The Fast Play feature – “>>” button – gets you the shortest round possible.
How to win Mighty Arthur
Winning payouts in Mighty Arthur, as with other video slots, are dependent on which symbols are landed and how many. A winning payline runs in succession from leftmost to right. The overview of the winning combinations and their payouts, as well as the fixed paylines, can be accessed at any time by clicking the “Menu” button just below the leftmost reel of the set. All winning combinations and winnings in general, are paid out according to the Paytable.
One of the Wild features in Mighty Arthur is the Arthur Wild symbol which can appear only on reel three during the base game and Free Spins Bonus round. When landed, it will cover all positions on the reel and will expand onto reels two and four making them fully wild. During this feature, you are guaranteed to get a winning combination.
Merlin Random Wilds is the second Wild feature which is found both during the base game and Free Spins Bonus feature. Merlin wild can appear on any of the reels of the set and it will produce from 2 to 6 additional wilds which are placed on random positions on the reel set. Merlin wild can be landed on multiple reels and will fill up the screen with wild symbols.
Definitely the main attraction of this video slot is the Free Spins Bonus round which is played when the Bonus symbol is landed simultaneously on the three odd-numbered reels – 1, 3, and 5. When this occurs, you are rewarded with 10 free spins. The Bonus symbol cannot be landed during this feature, so this feature cannot be retriggered and no additional free spins can be won.
Mighty Arthur is another typical slot from Quickspin; it is a high-quality game with smooth gameplay, looks good, and has various bonus features which can be very generous when triggered. The game advertises an RTP (Return to player) of 96.94%.
