Mighty Artur is the latest slot machine to feature a theme that is inspired by the legends of King Arthur. There is obviously a decent list already available, of slot machines that have this particular topic, but one more can’t hurt since it’s such a popular theme and the designer in this case is Quickspin.
The game that Quickspin came up with has a total of 20 lines present on 5 reels. The game will have expanding symbols, random wilds, mega symbols, free spins and scatter symbols. The game appears to have a maximum reward of just $750, but with a theoretical RTP which is pretty high.
Betting and Prizes
In the case of Mighty Artur, the player has a betting range between $0.20 and $100 to choose from. The full list of bets can be accessed by clicking on the Bet section, at the bottom of the screen. The line bets that you will use vary between $0.01 and $5.
The big prize of Mighty Artur will come via the symbol with Lady Guinevere in it. Have five symbols form a combination, and the payout could reach $750. The average RTP is good, being set at 96%, so the lack of a huge jackpot isn’t as much of a problem.
Mighty Arthur Slot Machine Features
One of the memorable wild symbols of Mighty Arthur is the one that’s showing you the main character, Arthur himself. This is normally showing up only on the 3rd reel, in stacked form. Should it cover the full reel with its symbols, it will then expand to the two neighboring columns, ending up as a mega wild which occupies a 3x3 area.
Second, there is Merlin’s Random Wild feature. Merlin Wilds are offered on all the reels, and once again they are stacked wilds. Have a full wild appear on one of the reels, and 2 to 6 additional wilds will be placed on random spots around the reels. The extra wilds will bring an additional payout, on top of whatever was offered for the symbols previously there.
Bonus symbols are scatters here, reserved for three reels (1, 3 and 5). All three reels have to get these symbols, or you can’t use the feature that they can bring you. This feature consists of 10 free spins. You can get both 3x3 wilds and Merlin Random Wilds during each free spin. You can’t retrigger this feature unfortunately.
I found the spread of features to be a good one. You’re not going to get unique features here, but they’re different enough from the usual ones, that they help make the game more enjoyable.
Theme & Design
Since the game uses King Arthur’s legends as inspiration, the look that the developer has gone for is a Medieval one. You see a magical forest in the background, with a green fog filling the space behind the reels. Moving on to the reels, you have some Medieval looking Royal cards, while the regular symbols display images of goblets, helmets, crowns, spell books, Merlin, Arthur, Lancelot and Lady Guinevere.
The game has a good design, modern looking and covering its Medieval theme rather well. As I’ve come to expect from Quickspin, this side of the slot is thoroughly enjoyable.
Mighty Arthur looks like it could be one of the most memorable slot machines that Quickspin has designed in 2017. I especially enjoyed its features, in addition to the high quality graphics.
