Introduction Arthur’s Fortune Slots
Yggdrasil, a Swedish based developer, brings forward a new slot called Arthur’s Fortune, a medium to high variance slot with the potential to pay out up to $750,000 in a single spin, or 7,510 times the stake. Aside from some incredible features and incredible visuals, the potential wins give you a buzz!
This slot is shown as a five reel and three row slot, with a total of 20 pay lines. Instead of conjuring up the Norse gods, as we would assume from this developer, they have developed this slot around the concept of the Arthurian legends of Prince Arthur.
Originally names as Camelot Gold, this slot had a last-minute change of name, rebranding as Arthur’s Fortune, which we believe is just the first incredible decision that went into making this slot. The rest of the slot’s incredible features come in the form of bonuses and graphics, with typical Yggdrasil high quality. They have shown they can really bring to life the graphics of the Middle Ages in Old Britain, with all the romanticised glory.
Playing this slot on a mobile device, the screen is almost entirely taken up by the reels but once you play on a desktop, the player is shown a stunning green landscape with mythical Camelot perched beautifully on the hill overlooking the reels. This stunning theme is brought to a head with a theatrical backing track.
The betting range for this slot is from $0.04 up to a maximum of $100 per spin, giving all players, regardless of how experienced they are in the slotting industry, a fair chance at winning with this slot.
The top prize is 7,510 times the stake meaning there is a top prize of $750,000 up for grabs. This is achieved through Wild Transformation and a stunning Free Spins feature. There is ample opportunity for the player to enjoy impressive pay outs from this stunning slot.
With an RTP of 96.20%, this slot sits a little above average, with a hit ratio of 22.17%. Therefore, you can expect, even with the medium to high volatility, to be winning every 5 or 6 spins.
The lower paying symbols for this slot are the card royals of Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10. Each of these is beautifully designed with the old English looking font. These are accompanied by a number of higher paying symbols.
There include the blue knight, the green knight, the turquoise knight, Guinevere, the wild (also the scatter for this slot) and King Arthur himself who is the premium of the symbols when five land on the reels – this gives the player 25 times the stake they bet.
The wild that is mentioned above can substitute for all pay symbols and is worth 27.5 times the stake for five of a kind. This also acts as the scatter for the player, which helps with the features, explained further below.
The player can trigger the Wild Transformation feature on any of the spins in the main game. You can score a maximum of 10 wilds in this feature. Above the reels, there is the main characters, each with their own slot. When the slot lands on that symbol, that symbol will be transformed into a wild. Not a bad first feature for this slot.
The next is the Free Spins feature which takes place in the bank vault of King Arthur. After testing this slot, we found that we triggered the free spins feature on average every 145 spins, which is a substantial number, however at a bet of $0.04, it would not be all that bad.
The Free Spins is triggered by 3, 4 or 5 scatters landing on the reels, or a single Orb symbol. For three scatters, you will be awarded 7 free spins and a wild symbol, while four scatters, you will win 10 free spins and a total of two wild symbols. Finally five scatters will award 14 free spins and three wilds.
The Wild Symbol Conversion is activated during the Free Spin feature and should two of more scatters land you will gain extra spins. Two awards 1 spin and a wild conversion, three gives 2 spins and two wild conversions, four gives the player 3 spins and 3 wild conversions, and finally five scatters award four free spins and four wild conversions.
In theory, this slot by Yggdrasil looks complicated but as soon as you begin to spin the reels, you get into the rhythm of the reels and get the hang of it quickly. The most important playing symbols of this slot is the wild. But obviously keep an eye out on the Orb symbol, which is Merlin’s Orb. It can appear on any given spin. If it appears in the main game, you can get 25 times the stake; when it appears in the free spins, you get 1-14 free spins.
No matter whether you love the old English scenery, or the Middle Age design, this slot has something to offer all players, with incredible features and pay outs to match.
With up to 7,510 times the stake, or $750,000, to win, there is everything to play for. Pairing the romantic design and the fortune of Camelot, this slot is stunning from design to gameplay. Play to win big, or just to embrace the stunning design, either way it’ll be enjoyable for you!
