Xcalibur Online Slot Basics
Xcalibur is an online slot game creation from renowned casino software provider Microgaming. The game features 5 reels and 50 paylines in a game that is based on the legend of King Arthur, his Lady Guinevere and the Knights of the Round Table, as well as the King’s mighty sword Excalibur, for which the game is named.
Xcalibur online slot includes 2 different bonus features, as well as scatter, bonus and stacked wild symbols. Players can trigger a Free Spins feature that instantly awards 12 free spins, or activate a Key Bonus feature in which they can win up to 10x multipliers on their wins by choosing up to 8 bonus doors to unlock.
Game Setting and Graphics
The game is based in Medieval England, and the scene is set against a backdrop of misty blue mountains, with the castle Camelot just visible in the distance. The game screen is fringed with an ornate wrought iron border complete with dragons and glowing purple orbs, and the reels themselves are simple and designed in a solid white colour to draw full attention to the theme-related symbols of the game. These detailed and brightly hued symbols include 3-dimensional depictions of King Arthur and Lady Guinevere, as well as a fearsome dragon and a few weapons that King Arthur may have used to keep his enemies at bay.
Xcalibur Reel Symbols
On the reels of Xcalibur are the ornate and colourful playing card symbols J, Q, K and A, as well as higher paying symbols that tie in with the legendary King of Camelot, including King Arthur himself, his lovely blonde Guinevere, a wrought iron helmet, a matching shield and swords and a snarling green dragon.
Stacked Wild Symbol
The sword Excalibur serves as the game’s wild symbol, and can substitute all other symbols in the game with the exception of the scatter and bonus symbols. This wild symbol is also a stacked wild, and may appear to fill entire reels during the game.
The wizard Merlin is the Xcalibur scatter symbol. Landing 3 or more of these scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the Free Spins feature.
Xcalibur Free Spins Feature
Once the Xcalibur Free Spins feature has been activated, players will automatically be awarded 12 free spins with which to play. Additionally, all winnings won during this feature will be doubled thanks to a 2x win multiplier.
The bonus key symbol activates the second bonus feature in Xcalibur online slots. This symbol appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4 during the base game, and players must land a bonus symbol on each of these reels to trigger the Bonus Key feature.
Xcalibur Bonus Key Feature
When the Bonus Key feature is triggered, the symbols on the reels will transform into 8 wooden doors. Players can choose to unlock doors at their leisure, and each unlocked door will award a win multiplier of between 1x and 10x players’ stakes. This bonus feature will end when players select the door that reveals a ‘Collect’ symbol, and players will be returned to the base game with their winnings.
