Introducing Wilhelm Tell slot machine

Wilhelm Tell is not for the faint hearted, after all could you shoot a crossbow at your own son’s head? Admittedly you would have an apple to aim, and as the story goes this is exactly what Wilhelm Tell had to do in order to save his own life. From the developers at Yggdrasil the slot offers 20 pay lines plus an extremely generous 97% pay out percentage. The slot is complete with an array of features that include free spins, stacked wilds and re-spins and these can certainly help you to land some big wins. Continue reading for more information.

Design and Theme

One of the more popular themes for online slots is folktales and although you may think that you have seen every folk tale ever covered there are more and more slots being released that show how much more slot developers can continue to come up with. Wilhelm Tell from Yggdrasil is one such slot as I have never come across this tale in any slot and I would like to think that over time I have tried out most of them.

Swiss legend describes Wilhelm Tell as a folk hero who was also a highly skilled marksman. By using his talent, he defeated from Albrecht Gessler whose was the despicable and cruel leader of the House of Habsbourg. Wilhelm Tell has been used in countless stories starting from the 14th Century and probably most notably, he inspired Rossini’s William Tell Overture – which is also the soundtrack that features in this game.

The graphics in this slot are brilliantly executed and distinctive to Yggdrasil as a developer and it has the same design and low paying symbols which can be seen in many of the other slots from this developer. The characters that feature in the slot have detailed facial expressions and retell the legend of Wilhelm Tell in this online slot.

How to Play & Win

There are 20 pay lines on offer to play with in Wilhelm Tell the slot, and players are offered a broad bet range that starts from just 0.10 coins to a maximum of 50 coins per spin. There is an auto play function that you can activate should you want to sit back and watch the game play out in front of you. With the auto play function, you can set it to play infinite spins however make sure you keep your eye on your bank balance to ensure that you keep within your spending limit.
The return to player offered in this slot is stated at 97% and this is a higher pay out, as the majority of online slots start at around 95% and the percentage of even the most generous of online slots tend to top out at 96.6%.

When it comes to landing wins in Wilhelm Tell you need to land three or more of the same symbols in any of your pay lines. The highest paying symbol in this slot is the villain Albrecht Gessler who pays a prize that is equivalent to 7.5x your stake. Whilst this may not initially sound like very much with this high percentage pay out the wins can really add up.

Game Features

The wild in this slot is represented by Wilheim Tell’s son Walter and he will appear on the reels stacked on the reels so that you can land wins more easily. Walter can also activate the nudge feature if he fails to appear fully on your reels as a fully stacked wild. Fill your entire screen with fully stacked wilds and you will land a huge pay out of 150x your stake.
If you land three or more if the scatter symbols the free spins bonus round will be activated and you then have the choice from the following three options. You can choose 10 free spins with a 5x multiplier, 5 free spins with a 10x multiplier or 1 free spin with a 50x multiplier.


Wilhelm Tell can be played for free and this is a brilliant feature as you can really get to know the way the game plays and features work without having to risk any of your own money. When it comes to placing real bets, you stand far more chance of landing the big wins.
This slot can be played on all devices whether tablet, PC or smartphone which gives you the freedom to play wherever and whenever you want to and whether you are playing on a small or large screen the game still looks fabulous and will take you on a great journey as you spin your reels. Better still there is no software to download as the slot runs completely in your web browser.

Final Thoughts

Wilhelm Tell is a slot which is designed to an incredibly high standard which Yggdrasil and the game play is not bad either. The best part is the top win giving you the potential to win 7,500x your stake and you then choose the option for one free spin and a 50x multiplier. This is an incredibly crazy choice as the volatility goes through the roof with just one chance of winning, but the wins are huge if it does.

The slot offers everything that you need to have an enjoyable gaming experience, the graphics are superb, the game play dynamic and the bonus features great too. Which asks the question how much more do you want?
Ok, there is the return to player which is above par and at 97% and there are endless winning possibilities up for grabs. I really enjoyed the fact that this slot featured the classical music for the soundtrack as it put a unique twist on what could have been just another common themed slot. Then there are the stacked nudging wilds that provide even more free spins bonuses to offer some interesting wins.
