The Sword and The Grail is a higher volatility jackpot slot from Play’n GO.
The story of King Arthur
The Sword and The Grail from Play’n GO draws its inspiration from the legendary story of King Arthur which is a popular theme amongst many slot players. This iteration is an August 2019 release which follows the story of King Arthur, Guinevere, Merlin and Lancelot. Our challenge is to answer the call for the chance to become King of the Knights within Arthur’s Court – for king and glory!
The slot has an RTP of 96.53%.
The Sword and The Grail : Game Highlights
The Sword and The Grail high volatility slot from Play’n GO is designed as a 5×3 grid slot which unfolds on 20 paylines. It adapts a very popular theme about King Arthur into a slot which offers multiplier wilds of up to x100 and free spins containing progressive multiplier wilds of up to 100x. We can win up to 10,000x bet in our quest for honour and glory!
The game begins in a stone court chamber which is presumably located within the mythical walls of Camelot Castle. The art work for this game is beautiful, using crisp graphics, colourful images and a creative design. There are four high-value symbols based on characters that were previously mentioned and five lower-value royal flush symbols. The soundtrack is no less impressive, keeping us on the edge of our seat as the reels spin.
Players will find the slot compatible with mobile, tablet and desktop. We can take it with us on Android or iOS devices.
Grail multiplier wild
The slot features two big attractions, the first of which is the Grail wild symbol. It can appear on any reel and form winning paylines of x3, x4 or x5 which can pay upwards of £250, £500 for £5,000. There is also a multiplier wild version which can apply a x2, x5, x10 or x100 multiplier to a winning payline. The maximum amount that we can win is £500,000 from five x100 multiplier wilds on the same payline but that will require a £100 wager.
Features include multiplier wilds and free spins with progressive multiplier wilds.
Free spins with progressive wild multiplier
The sword Excalibur acts as a scatter symbol that can land on any of the reels. While the slot does not offer any scatter pays, three or more of the scatters will trigger 5 initial free spins with Grail x2 multiplier wild.
The free spins are played out on up to 4 levels. It is only by collecting swords that we progress to the next level. Collecting 6 swords will award an extra 5 free spins and increase the Grail multiplier wild to x5. Collecting 11 swords will advance us to the third level for a further 5 free spins and increases the multiplier wild to x10. Finally, collecting 18 swords advances us to the fourth and final level, awarding an extra 5 free spins and increasing the multiplier wild to x100.

The Sword and The Grail verdict: Legendary slot
I should start by saying that this is a high volatility slot, so it is not for those with a serious heart condition! So what does that mean? Well, it means that there is a chance to unlock higher wins but it comes at the trade-off of requiring a higher bankroll so that we can play long enough for the best opportunity to trigger a large prize.
Since I enjoy high volatility, I can say that I did enjoy this one since it makes the most of the limited features that one finds. The multiplier wilds and free spins have a decent hit rate meaning that it is not next to impossible to trigger them and I did manage to collect wins with the x100 multiplier once or twice. The theme, artwork and sound effects are fantastic, and I would recommend giving this one a try.
