Mighty Arthur, from Quickspin, follows a story that has been popular for a lot of years now, and not just among pokie developers. King Arthur and the people that were part of his story are used as some of the symbols in this game.
You can see the King in one of the major symbols, while Guinevere, Merlin or Lancelot are shown in others. There were others that could’ve been included as well on this list, but the developer chose to have a bunch of poker cards and goblets or helmets shown instead.
I enjoyed what I saw, so I’d say that the design quality is pretty good. Look at the background, and there you will find a green forest, thick with trees and cliffs, which isn’t necessarily giving you an idea of what goes on in the game.
Based in Sweden, Quickspin has created three dozen pokies so far, and they’ve all been better than average for the online industry.
The company’s roots are in one of the most popular developers around, in NetEnt, but also in Unibet, if we’re talking about the ones that are running it. I have a number of favorites in their collection, but I would especially mention pokies like Big Bad Wolf or Spinions Beach Party.
How To Play It
By selecting the Total Bet display, at the bottom, the player gets a new menu to open up, which will have all the bet values that are possible. You have a complete range that will start off from $0.20 and will go as high as $100 from there. For the game’s 20 lines, the line bet varies between $0.01 and $5.
You are playing a game with 5×3 reels, which relies on 20 active lines. The features might be out of the ordinary, but the rest of the game isn’t.
A very special feature of Mighty Arthur is the one that is based on the actual symbol that’s showing us this character. King Arthur’s symbol is going to land reel sized when it makes an appearance, so up to three positions are occupied by it. It is only used on the third reel of the game, but if it lands there it expands next, taking over the reels 2 and 4 as well. You end up with a giant sized wild this way, which occupies 3 reels and a total of 9 symbols.
Merlin is another character that gets a big role in this game. It’s another wild symbol that can occupy an entire reel, but this time you can’t get it to take over other columns as well. On the other hand, the Merlin Wild is allowed to appear on all columns, not just the 3rd one, so it’s going to come in handy a lot more often. Besides its regular appearance, Merlin also adds 2 to 6 extra wilds in random positions around the reels.
With the Crown Shield Bonus symbol you can trigger 10 free spins, provided that you got three of them total, on the 1st, 3rd and 5th columns.
A regular combination can pay $750 in this game, which doesn’t sound like much, but you have to consider how often wild symbols can help you out in this game, with expanding, random and mega wilds all being offered.
Mighty Arthur doesn’t have the most interesting story, despite the popular theme, but it makes up for it with its wild based features.
