Expert's review Toby Nisbet

Slot tested

An Arthurian legend is unearthed in The Sword and the Grail from Play’n GO. Joined by familiar faces of fable, Arthurian Romance is now given the video slot treatment. Enter a medieval kingdom where magic, mystery and multipliers abound.

An Epic’s Visuals

Fir for a saga so expansive and eternal, The Sword and the Grail has graphics that are fit for a king. A subdued backdrop of an ominously lit Camelot interior is the setting for the base game. All long cast shadows, flickering torch flames with just a hint of the supernatural provide a compelling atmosphere, while also being a touch on the eerie side.

King Arthur, Sir Lancelot, Lady Guinevere and Merlin form the ensemble for The Sword and the Grail. Illustrated with flair and majesty, Play’n GO have rendered these iconic characters in distinctive tones, providing high-contrast symbols that are easily differentiated.

The less than colourful interior is punctuated with symbol design incorporating neons and luminous flashes, elevating the somewhat dour colour palette to one with hints of luminous enchantment.

The Sword and the Grail music comes courtesy of demonic chanting, sentimental melodies and a moody horn section providing a sinister, foreboding atmosphere.

Symbols of the Sword

For 5 on any of The Sword and the Grail’s 20 fixed paylines across a 5x3 reels, symbols pay as follows:

  • King Arthur - 50x
  • Lady Guinevere - 25x
  • Sir Lancelot - 15x
  • Merlin - 15x
  • A - 6.40x
  • K - 4.80x
  • Q - 4.80x
  • J - 3.20x
  • T - 3.20x

Only the highest wins pay, from left to right.

Fabled Features

True to Arthurian form, there’s more than originally meets the eye with The Sword and the Grail slot. With Holy Grail Wilds, Holy Grail Multiplier Wilds, Excalibur Scatters and Free Spins, players have the potential to be rewarded handsomely without the need to wrench a cumbersome sword from a stubborn stone.

Holy Grail Wilds

Resplendent in gold and adorned with gems, the Holy Grail of Wilds is Holy Grail Wilds. Replacing all symbols minus the scatter, landing 3, 4 or 5 awards players with 2.5x, 5x and 50x your wager.

Also coming with random multipliers, Holy Grail Wilds can come with 2x, 5x, 10x all the way up to a massive 100x. Positively magical - and we didn’t even have to get Merlin out of bed.

Sword Multipliers

Supersizing multipliers, the random sword icon has the potential to max out your winnings. Sword Multipliers, bring players more action and perhaps more importantly, more fun.

Excalibur Scatters

Land 3 or more Excalibur Scatters and players enter the Free Spins round. With 5 Free Spins to your name, each Holy Grail Wild comes with a 2x Multiplier.

Free Spins

Once you enter the Free Spins round, there are 4 separate levels of Multipliers:

  • Level 1 = 5 Free Spins with 2x Multiplier Wilds
  • Level 2 (after accumulating 6 scatters) = a further 5 Free Spins with 5x Multiplier Wilds
  • Level 3 (after accumulating 11 scatters) = a further 5 Free Spins with 10x Multiplier Wilds
  • Level 4 (after accumulating 18 scatters) = a further 5 Free Spins with 100x Multiplier Wilds

Bets and Payouts

High volatility The Sword and the Grail comes loaded with a 96.53% RTP. Minimum and maximum bets are set at £0.10 and £100 respectively and maximum win potential sits generously at 10,000x.


Fans of medieval-themed slots are going to love The Sword and the Grail from Play’n GO. Ticking all the thematic boxes, graphics are outstanding, the music fits like a glove and gameplay is pitched perfectly.

All the medieval projects we had to do at primary school kind of puts me off this period slot. Sure, the graphics are gorgeous and the gameplay way above average but I can’t shake the memory of my 5-year old self trying to stake awake during history class.

As good-looking as the base game is, it would have been nice for the features to be more featured. Otherworldly and breathtaking graphics aside, this slot could have benefitted by a bump in features.

There could have been a bit more going on when it comes to features. But, the multiplier wilds on offer with the tiered multiplier Free Spins is a really nice touch and keeps gameplay ticking along nicely.

Hard to fault, The Sword and the Grail raises itself above other medieval-themed slots. This slot is an exemplary all-rounder, both stylistically and mechanically strong. Much like King Arthur himself, there are plenty of reasons why this slot reaches legendary status.

    I like long strolls on the beach, walking in the rain and dancing like no one's watching... Well, okay, perhaps that's not 100% accurate. A casino connoisseur and a poker brain, I've worked in various forms of iGaming from offline casinos to poker TV shows to online operations.
