Play ‘N Go’s The Sword and The Grail Video Slot Review

The Sword and the Grail: Demo

Go on a quest for mediaeval treasure in The Sword and The Grail, a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot from Play ’N Go. Like most of their video slots, The Sword and the Grail is a volatile one. Look out for wild multipliers that can boost payouts by up to 100x as well as a dynamic free spins round where the wild multipliers increase the further you progress. Play on all devices from between 10p and £100 per spin.

The chamber of a castle forms the backdrop to the action here. On the reels you’ll see an assortment of lower value coins as well as member of the royal household. The king is the top standard symbol, paying 2.5, 5 or 25 times your total bet if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

The grail is the wild. This replaces all of the standard symbols. It pays 2.5, 5 or 50 times your bet if you find 3, 4 or 5 of them in combination. The grail can appear as a multiplier wild on any spin and boost a line win by 2x, 5x, 10x or even 100x.

The sword is the scatter. Land 3 of them on the same spin and you’ll trigger the multi-level Free Spins feature. You’ll start with 5 free spins with all wilds coming with a 2x multiplier attached. To progress through the levels, you’ll need to collect sword scatters. Once you have 6 of them (that includes those from the triggering spin), you’ll receive 5 more free spins and the wild multiplier increases to 5x.

Collect 11 swords and 5 more free spins are added with all wilds coming with a 10x boost. To reach the final stage, you need to collect 18 swords through levels 1, 2 and 3. Again 5 extra free spins are awarded. From then on, all wilds come with a 100x multiplier!

The Sword and The Grail ticks all the boxes for a Play ’N Go video slot. The design is nicely done and the gameplay though relatively simple is hugely volatile. The key to success is landing the free spins then quickly working through the levels. That’s easier said than done of course but the multipliers can really come into their own if you do.

The payouts for the symbols are lower than in most Play ‘N Go games but the multipliers more than compensate – the 100x multiplier can lead to wins of 10,000 times your bet on every free spin. If you like the Middle Ages theme and super high variance play, then The Sword and The Grail is a quest to consider. If you want big wins of 10,000 times your bet per spin, Play ‘N Go’s Wild Falls also offers them.
