Lancelot Slot Machine
In Arthurian legend, Sir Lancelot was perhaps the most famed of all the Knights of the Round Table. He was said to be the greatest swordsman in the Kingdom and known for his gallantry and great courage. Lancelot would have a love affair with Guinevere, the wife of King Arthur, which would see the downfall of the Kingdom, Lancelot living out his days as a hermit, while the queen lived out her days in an abbey as a nun.
This slot by WMS features the romance between Lancelot and Guinevere as the main subject of the game. The two characters are both stacked and will take up entire reels and in a twist from your average slot, they act as both the wilds and the symbols which activate the feature rounds of the game. Another aspect of the slot which differs from the norm is the fact that there are four symbols shown on each reel as opposed to the more standard three.
Lancelot and Guinevere
Lancelot and Guinevere are the two symbols which dominate this slot. Firstly they are the highest paying symbols and if you manage to land 5 in a row on a win line of either of them, you’ll win 500 coins. A combination of the two five times in a row will see you pick up a win of 250 coins.
However, both of these symbols are perhaps more valuable in other ways. Firstly they are both wilds, so will substitute for any other symbol to give additional wins. When you consider that there are two wilds and they are both stacked, you’ll understand that this could lead to some very big moments, where you’ll gain multiple wins at once.
Should Lancelot and/or Guinevere appear on both of the first two reels; the feature of the game will be activated. The feature starts with an image of the sword emerging from a lake before you are taken to the free spins round. You’ll have 5 free spins (unless you landed the scatters on more than just the first two reels, where you’ll now win more) and all wins are doubled during the feature.
Visually the slot is a nice looking one. Both of the main protagonists are striking, with Lancelot stood in his golden battle armour with his sword drawn ready for action, while Guinevere looks demure wearing a plain green dress and golden jewellery. They are joined by many other symbols relevant to the theme, these all set against a grey, stone backdrop. These symbols include a shield, a helmet, yellow roses, Camelot and a crown. Dressed in a purple cloak, Merlin also appears on the reels, alongside a fighting Knight. The soundtrack to the slot isn’t one that really benefits the slot, just a very gentle tune playing alongside each spin – although this improves during the feature where the sound becomes much more rousing.
This 5 reel slot has 40 win lines. All 40 are in play as a default, but you’ll have the option of playing any number between 1 and 40. There are two ways to set the amount for the spin. The classic panel allows you to set the number of lines and the coin value, the combination of the two giving you your total bet size. The quickbet panel shows you a number of boxes displaying various total stakes for the spin – just click on a box and the amount is set.
Lancelot Slot Conclusion
This slot is certainly one that catches the eye. It is filled with rich colours and the Lancelot and Guinevere symbols are the highlights, with both of these being stacked. The gameplay is good and somewhat original, although the slot is slightly lacking in features – with this kind of subject there could have been scope for much grander ideas. Having said that, this game will appeal to many – it looks great; it plays straightforwardly and will pay out often.
