The general layout and gameplay of 10 Swords are considered to be classic; not only does this slot have a 5x3 game field with 20 paylines, but there is also a single bonus game that is very simple to play. It is playable between 0.10 to 100 and the RTP is 96.45%. The max win is 5,000 times the stake.
The Ante Bet can be activated between any basic game spin, and maintaining it incurs a 20% surcharge per spin. The advantage of doing so is an increased chance of triggering the bonus round, although this possibility is not specified. However, the RTP increases marginally when the Ante Bet is activated.
The mid- to high-level symbols pay between 10 and 40 times the wager for 5 of a kind winners, while the low-level symbols pay 4 times the wager. The Eagle Emblem Wild can appear on all reels and substitute for other symbols to help complete and/or enhance wins. If three to five wilds appear on a payline, they pay the same as the highest-paying Caesar icon.
This game's immediate scatter prize symbol is the Sword Symbol, which can appear in any position during all game stages. You win 2x, 5x, 10x, 25x, 100x, 1,000x, or 5,000x your wager for seeing 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10 sword symbols, and the prizes are heaped on the left.
The Bonus Round is activated when at least three Shield Scatters appear anywhere in view, and three scatters award eight free spins. 4 scatters trigger 10 free spins with 2 low-value symbols already transformed into Sword symbols, while 5 scatters trigger 12 free spins with all 4 low-value symbols transformed into Sword symbols.
You must accumulate four Shield symbols during the bonus round in order to transform a low-value symbol into a Sword symbol for the duration of the feature. You receive +4 additional spins for the first successful conversion, +3 additional spins for the second successful conversion, and +2 additional spins for the fourth successful conversion.
