While the US and Canada celebrate Labour Day in September, the rest of the world pays tribute to International Workers’ Day today, on May 1st. Of all the tales, myths and legends we all heard growing up, few match the level of hard work as it took to pull the Excalibur out of the rock, am I right?
No matter how powerful the men were and how much effort they put into it, nobody could pull it out except for a young boy that would later grow up to be King Arthur. What better way to commemorate today than by bonding with the mighty sword in the newest release from Pragmatic Play – Excalibur Unleashed.
Will you struggle to succeed or turn out to be the King Arthur of 2023?
Enter a New World
As always, I’ll start off by taking a quick look at the graphics which are really great. Pragmatic Play pulls you into a different world by creating a relaxing atmosphere with the help of both soothing colors and a magical soundtrack.
It sets the tone right from the very beginning and manages to give your mind a well deserved break from daily life.
The biggest feature in the game and the one that is prominent in all areas of it is the Expanding Wilds. As soon as you score a Wild symbol, you will get a random multiplier on the first or last reel.
As far as the values go, you can get any of the following: 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 7x, 8x, 9x, 10x, 12x, 15x or 20x.
These multipliers will be applied to all of your winning combos and as you can imagine make a massive difference in terms of winning.
Excalibur Free Spins
I wasn’t sure how Free Spins were triggered but it didn’t take long until I found out. When you get a Wild symbol on reels 1 and 5, it’s time and you will get 6 Free Spins to play with. While you get ready to spin, the backdrop changes from daytime to nighttime.
The beauty of reaching the bonus round is that your multiplier swords will stay put until the end. If you can get one of them involved in a win, the multiplier will get a +1 boost.
If you think that’s good, try to get them both involved because this will not only give you a bigger win, you will also be awarded an additional Free Spin.
How to Buy Free Spins
Some slots really make you work hard for Free Spins and it can feel like an impossible task. That’s not the case here, or at least it was fairly easy during my trial run. With that said, there is the Buy Bonus feature available if you feel like speeding things up.
It will cost you 85x your bet, which is pretty steep but it can sometimes be worth it. Then again, you’ll never know until you know what the outcome of your bonus round is if it was worth it or not.
Your initial Wild multipliers will be random though and can start at 1x up to 20x.
Excalibur Unleashed Is Worth the Effort
Despite the world giving you a day off today, I think it’s worth going to work on Excalibur Unleashed. The glowing swords throwing multipliers your way makes it a joy to play and the wins seem to come fairly easy.
Great graphics, features and game play is a dynamic trio for a slot and I believe this game has all of them. Could I see another feature being implemented? Of course, but there are enough to make things fun and I really think you’ll enjoy it.
