Legend Of The Sword Technical Features
Anyone who has played on Microgaming’s 9 Masks of Fire, or even other Snowborn titles like Egyptian Tombs is going to recognise the scatter collection mechanic on display here.
For five or more scatter symbols, players will receive a payout as displayed on the left-hand side of the reels, with 10 providing the biggest payout.
Other than this, there is nothing too notable about the base game. The action takes place on a slightly larger than normal 5x5 grid, giving the slot a slightly different reel. The high number of paylines is definitely something worth noting though, with the game offering 3,125 different ways to win.
As far as starting the game is concerned, the minimum bet is set at £0.20 and the maximum is at £24, giving this is a fairly low betting range. The RTP for the title is listed as 96.12%, and the title is rated as being medium volatility.
Legend Of The Sword Bonus Features
There is just the one main bonus feature in the game for players to take advantage of - a free spins round with a few added twists.
As is standard in most top online slots, you will need to land three scatter symbols in order to trigger the free spins. The scatters need to land on reels 1, 3, and 5 here to get things going.
When the round launches, players will be given three spins. Whenever a sword scatter symbol lands on the reels, players will then be rewarded with one extra free spin.
The round will continue until all of the free spins have been used up. As well as this, there is a progressive multiplier in place that increases by one every time you land a scatter symbol as well.
Finally, during this game, the scatter payout doesn’t reset after every spin. Instead, it collects during the round and pays out when the round is over. All of these bonuses do mean that there is a good chance of getting your hands on some big wins during the free spins round here.
Legend Of The Sword Theme And Design
By this point, we all have an idea of what to expect from a title themed around the Legend of King Arthur, and Legend of the Sword delivers more of the same.
The reels take place on an unrolled scroll, with a castle sitting in the background, and, of course, the sword in the stone sitting on the left-hand side.
Eagle eyed Monty Python fans will spot a white rabbit underneath the reels, presumably in reference to the killer bunny in their King Arthur parody, Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
While it’s not particularly groundbreaking from a visual perspective, it is well-designed and as a result, very easy to use.
Conclusion And Verdict
The tiered scatter pay system has proven to be a hit with online gamblers in recent years, so if you’re looking for more of the same, then Legend of the Sword will tick a few boxes.
While the title doesn’t offer a huge deal of anything new, it does what it aims to do fairly well. The increased number of paylines does help it stand out, and the winning potential of the free spins round should be enough of a selling point for some players.
