How to Play
This Quickspin slot will bring you through the magical adventures of King Arthur, and you will encounter his friends like Merlin, Sir Lancelot, and Guinevere along your quest for the Holy Grail. Getting on the adventure is surprisingly easy. Quickspin has really simplified things like coin sizes and bet levels for players. All 20 lines are active, and there are no coins to deal with. In Mighty Arthur, all you have to do is adjust your total bet size. It starts from $0.20 a spin, and for the ones who are lucky and loaded, you can take your bet per spin all the way up to $100. After that, hit the spin button. The Auto Play button is located just at the top left of the spin button, and there you can set the number of rounds you want the game to spin by itself. From highest to lowest, Mighty Arthur’s symbols are:
- Wild (Purple Crest)
- Sir Lancelot
- Knight’s Helmet
- A, K, Q, J and 10
Special symbols are:
- Bonus Scatter
- Merlin Random Wild (Reel)
- Arthur Expanding Wild (Reel)
Graphics and Sounds
Mighty Arthur has a medieval theme and everything is smooth. The game is set in a magical forest, and the characters are all finely drawn, and the reels can get fiery at times as bonus features are about to hit. However, overall the graphics and animation are nothing really out of the box but it’s pleasant enough on the eyes. The soundtrack is majestic and builds up with your anticipation, topped off with celebrating trumpetss with winning paylines.
Mighty Arthur has a fixed jackpot of $750. This is not a lot, but notice this is in real world currency, not in coins – so it’s a bit more than it sounds, although still not astounding. The jackpot is won when you spin 5 Wilds, or 5 Guinevere symbols. 5 Lancelot symbols pay $625. So while this isn’t a huge jackpot, the second highest value symbols still pay a decent amount, compared to many other pokies where it’s a bit of a sharp drop in payout if you don’t hit 5 of the highest value symbol.
Mighty Arthur has two things going for it – Wilds and Free Spins.
Arthur Expanding Wild
During both the base game and in Free Spin bonus games, the man himself, King Arthur, becomes a Wild Reel, on reel 3. It can expand to adjacent reels and fill a significant portion of your screen with more wilds for winning paylines.
Merlin Random Wild
This feature can also appear in both the base and Free Spin bonus game. Here, Merlin can appear on any one of the five reels, and transform an entire reel into Wilds, and then add another extra 2 to 6 additional Wilds to top it off. Needless to say, lots of wins when this magician comes on.
Free Spins Bonus
Spin 3 or more Bonus Scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5, and you’ll get yourself another 10 extra spins.
Mighty Arthur is a fine video pokie from Quickspin, but don’t expect anything too groundbreaking. That having been said, there are plenty of Wilds and Free Spins to be had, leading to frequent wins and pretty ok sums of money.
