Quickspin slots are known for their original bonus features, smooth gameplay and beautiful graphics. The medieval themed Mighty Arthur slots scores high marks on all those points and as such, can be classified as a typical Quickspin slot.
It looks great, has some unique and entertaining bonus features and the reels turn as smooth as a magnetic train gliding over the tracks.
Mighty Arthur gameplay and features
This slot has a 5 reel, 20 fixed pay line setup and is themed around the legend of King Arthur and Merlin the wizard. The minimum bet is just 20p per spin, and the maximum bet is capped at £100 per spin. The artwork is quite stunning, with gorgeous drawn images of Arthur, Merlin, princess Guinevere and various items that belong to the average wizard/king such as magic books, helmets and wine cups.
The theoretical return to player is an outstanding 96.94%, which is very impressive. Mighty Arthur doesn’t quite make our top 15 of best-paying slots but comes very close indeed, and that is good enough for us.
The variance of Mighty Arthur is on the low side of medium, another typical Quickspin quality.
Symbols and payouts
The wild symbol substitutes all other symbols except for the scatters and pays out 7.5 x your total bet when you get 5 of a kind on an active pay line.
The Princess is also worth 7.5 x your bet, closely followed by King Arthur which will pay 6 x your total bet when you line up a five of a kind. All other premium symbols pay out 4 x your bet, and the card symbols are worth 2.5 x your stake.
Arthur Expanding Wild
Every time Arthur shows up fully stacked on the 3rd reel, you win the Arthur Expanding Wild feature. The full 3 middle reels will turn wild, often leading to significant wins.
If only a part of Arthur is showing on the reels, he might get nudged to the centre and activate the feature. This nudge mechanism is very similar to Quickspin’s big hit Sakura Fortune.
Merlin Random Wild
Should Merlin appear fully stacked on any of the 5 reels, the Merlin Random Wild Feature is activated. Merlin turns wild and adds 2 – 6 random wilds on the screen, for extra winning combinations. The nudge feature can also be triggered on this feature.
Free Spins Bonus
When 3 scattered bonus symbols appear on reels 1, 3 and 5, the free spins bonus is activated. You are awarded 10 free spins. This may not sound too exciting, but the main draw of this feature is that the nudge feature will automatically be activated on any Merlin or Arthur symbol that appears on the reels.
The free spins cannot be retriggered and can be a bit of a hit or miss, depending on how many time the nudge feature is activated.
