Legend of the Sword Review
Legend of the Sword is a 5-reel, 3,125 ways to win slot developed by Snowborn, a studio under the wing of iGaming giants Microgaming. This quirky title, inspired by King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table features a 5-tiered prize ladder that can see players win up to 10,000x their initial stake when landing Excalibur scatter symbols. In addition to this, there's a highly lucrative Camelot Free Spins feature also offering a prize ladder that can offer players unlimited free spins.
One of Legend of the Sword's biggest flexes is its gorgeous design. The 5x5 reels are set upon an unrolled scroll of parchment which is set in front of a beautiful fictional Kingdom of Camelot. The game's prize ladder is displayed on a bright red flag that's hanging just behind the legendary sword buried deep into a stone.
Low paying game symbols are gilded card suits, clubs, spades, diamonds and hearts. High paying symbols include a shield, a knight's helmet, a golden goblet and King Arthur's crown. The Excalibur scatter symbol appears as you guessed it... The sword, Excalibur! The free spins symbol features King Arthur himself.
During the Camelot Free Spins feature, whenever players land an Excalibur Scatter symbol one of the famous Knights of the Round table will appear, resetting the spins. These include King Arthur, Sir Lancelot, Sir Percival, Sir Gawain, Sir Percival, Sir Bors the Younger, Sir Lamorak, Sit Kay and Sir Gareth.
In terms of the soundtrack, Legend of the Swords boasts a high-octane mythical score that inspires bravery, confidence and willed us on towards big money wins! It's nothing out of the ordinary for this style of game, but it worked well!
Legend of the Sword is all about the 5-tiered prize ladder. Of course, it's important that players pick up wins featuring great combinations of high-value symbols, but what players really want to aspire to is landing a full set of Excalibur scatter symbols.
In terms of navigating this slot, all of the game's buttons can be found on the right-hand side of the game reels. From top to bottom you'll find sound settings, autospin, spin and turbo spin, stake selection and game settings.
This high volatility slot has an RTP of 96.12%, which is fair in our eyes. In addition to this, it offers players maximum wins of 10,000x their stake. Interestingly, it's probably more likely that you'll win the maximum stake during base gameplay, however, it will be a bit of a grind! That's not to say that big wins aren't achievable in the Camelot Free Spin feature, because they really are... Especially with the increasing win multiplier that comes into play during this time!
Personally, we're big fans of games that revolve around prize ladders and scatter jackpots... Big wins somehow feel a bit more achievable when playing them. All in all, Legend of the Sword is a decent slot, it might not offer anything particularly groundbreaking, but it offers solid gameplay with big 10,000x wins and an enjoyable aesthetic.
