Yggdrasil Gaming’s Arthur’s Fortune Slot Review

Arthur’s Fortune: Demo

We saw a slot called Arthur’s Fortune and thought at last, a game based on the classic 1980s comic creation and ultimate wheeler dealer, Arthur Daley. Arthur’s Fortune is instead about the legendary English king and his knights of the round table that has been created by Yggdrasil Gaming. In our Arthur’s Fortune review, you’ll find out that this virtual trip to Camelot comes with superb design and plenty of extras. Standard symbols can randomly convert into wilds on any spin. Trigger the feature for 7, free spins with symbols turning into wilds. There’s also a special bonus symbol that can award cash prizes or award free spins.

Arthur’s Fortune Bonus Features 

There are some slightly unusual extras in Arthur’s Fortune. Look out for transforming wilds, special bonus orbs and free spins where even more symbols can turn wild.

Transforming Wilds feature

Above the reels you’ll see a carousel made up of segments that relate to the symbols below. If the pointer on the carousel lands on a symbol, it will transform it into a wild. It’s possible to transform multiple symbols on any spin. In fact, you could in theory see up to 10 symbols transform from standard to wild.

Land 5 wilds symbols on a payline and you’ll receive a payout equal to 27.5x your total bet. These wilds are active for 1 spin in the base game. They revert to their original state for the next spin. Things are slightly different in the free spins round.

Free Spins feature

Land 3 of the scatter wild on the same spin to activate the Free Spins feature. You will then receive the following free spins and symbol conversions.

  • 3 scatters = 7 free spins with 1 symbol conversion
  • 4 scatters = 10 free spins with 2 symbol conversions
  • 5 scatters = 14 free spins with 3 symbol conversions

All symbol conversions are active for the whole of the free spins round, not just for a single free spin. Retriggers are possible here too. These add more free spins and extra symbol conversions.

  • 2 scatters = 1 more free spin + 1 symbol conversions
  • 3 scatters = 2 more free spins + 2 symbol conversions
  • 4 scatters = 3 more free spins + 3 symbol conversions
  • 5 scatters = 4 more free spins + 4 symbol conversions

Merlin Bonus feature

Keep a special eye out for the white orb that can land on reel 5 only. When it hits, it awards an instant bonus prize. This varies depending on whether you’re in the base game or the free spins round:

  • Base Game: up to 25 x bet cash prizes, 7 to 14 free spins with 1, 2 or 3 wild symbols in the Free Spins feature
  • Free Spins feature: up to 50 x bet cash prizes or between 1 to 14 extra free spins

Arthur’s Fortune Theme – fantastic recreation of Camelot

Yggdrasil Gaming are among the top developers when it comes to slot design and they’re really excelled with Arthur’s Fortune. The sound and visuals here are terrific. The reels in the base game are set against a backdrop of Camelot Castle and fields filled with tents.

In the Free Spins feature, you’ll head to a chamber within the castle that’s guarded by knights in suits of armour. It’s all very impressive. Those wooden-framed reels are made up of A to 10 royals as well as 5 members of the royal court. Arthur is the most rewarding standard symbol, paying 12.5x your total bet if you land 5 on a payline.

The soundtrack in both the base game and the bonus matches the Arthurian theme perfectly. This really is a superbly designed slot.
