Play’n GO Releases The Sword & The Grail Pokie
After the successful launch of Rise of Merlin in June, Play’n GO are back with yet another King Arthur themed pokies game. This time, the focus is on the King himself and his search for the Holy Grail.
The Sword & the Grail went live on the 6th of August and the pokie is set to challenge players to rise through the ranks of squire to become the king of Knights. Packed with amazing graphics, symbol animations and rewarding bonus features, The Sword & the Grail is set to be yet another successful production by one of the world’s leading game developers.
A 5-reel Medieval Adventure
The Sword & the Grail features 5 spinning reels with 3 rows and 20 paylines. Before the start of each new spin, you can set the coin value between 0.01 and 10.00 for a minimum bet of 0.10 and a max bet of 100.00. On the reels, the high paying symbols include King Arthur himself, Queen Guinevere, Sir Lancelot and Merlin who you should recognise from Play’n GO’s previous medieval game. For the lower paying symbols shields have been used to represent the high card symbols.
The Grail is the Wild symbol and can substitute for any other symbol except the Sword. Finding all five can yield a payout of up to 150x your total stake. The grail can also appear as a magical multiplier Wilds in the base game and in the Free spins round. When it appears, it can award a 2x multiplier, a 5x, 10x or a massive 100x multiplier, so it is worth looking out for.
Rising Through the Ranks
The most important symbol in The Sword & the Grail is King Arthur’s sword Excalibur. This is the Scatter and will trigger the free spins bonus round when three or more land on the reels at the same time. The idea with the free spins is to climb up the levels to the top and achieve the highest Knight award, being the 100x Wild multiplier. When you start on level 1 you get 5 free spins. Whenever a sword symbol appears, it goes into the collection.
If you collect 6 swords, you move to stage 2 and receive 5 more free spins and a 2x Wild multiplier. If you collect another 5 swords, you move to stage 3 with more spins and a 10x Wild multiplier. Finally, if you collect a total of 18 swords, you get another 5 spins and the Wild multiplier set at the maximum of 100x.
The Sword & the Grail look set to be another successful release from Play’n GO and can be enjoyed on desktop and mobile.
