Ancient legends are fertile ground for game developers looking for a juicy theme and Play N Go has decided to explore the medieval period where swords and knights meet magical spells. It’s a tall order but Play N Go has managed to pull it off with style.
There is plenty to discover in The Sword and The Grail, and indeed we will get to all of that in our slot review below.

A nice touch and one that we think adds an extra layer of interest to this casino game.

The Sword and The Grail bonus features
The Sword and The Grail makes us feel as though we have just stepped into a vast medieval banquet hall. You can almost smell the mead! Play N Go has done a great job of creating authentic visuals that match the time period of the legends at the heart of this game.
There are A, K, Q, J and T symbols, which are low value, and look to be either coins or shields. The character symbols are more valuable. We can see Merlin, Lancelot, Guinevere and King Arthur as individual symbols, with Arthur being the most valuable. He awards 25 times the stake for 5 on a payline.
The grail – a bejewelled chalice – is the Wild symbol and it can substitute for any other symbol except the Scatter. It pays out fairly well too, awarding 50 times the stake for completing a winning payline. The grail also comes with a built-in multiplier, which can be x2, x5, x10 or a huge x100 the stake.
We’ve met the Wild grail and now we can take a look at the Sword symbol. This acts as the Scatter and landing three of them anywhere on the reels will activate free spins with 5 free rounds. During this feature, each Grail Wild has an x2 multiplier.
The objective is to collect as many sword symbols as you can to progress through each of the four stages. To move from the first to the second stage, you will need to collect 6 swords, which award 5 extra spins and multiplier Wilds at x5.
Stage 3 is activated with 5 more swords, which award 5 free spins again and multiplier Wilds of x10. Finally, collecting 7 swords will unlock stage 4 with another 5 free spins and the Wild symbols will have a whopping x100 multiplier attached. This all adds up to a potential 20 additional free spins in total to be won during the feature.
