Excalibur Unleashed slot REVIEW
Excalibur Unleashed ReviewWe always thought King Arthur pulled the Excalibur from the stone, but apparently it was given to him by some mysterious Lady of the Lake. Either way, this legendary sword was said to have magical powers, but it’s not quite clear what the word ‘Excalibur’ actually means. Some say it means ‘Lightning Sword’, which sounds kind of cool. It plays a central role in Excalibur Unleashed either way, which is hardly surprising given the title of the game.
The animal twist to the usual medieval knight theme may give this game a less than serious appearance, but the volatility is no joke. Your bankroll will usually get drained between bonus rounds, but the feature comes with an above average 1 in 179 spins hit rate. The game revolves around full reel multiplier wilds on reels 1 and 5, and they are sticky with an increasing multiplier for the duration of the bonus round. This can lead to payouts up to 5,000x your stake, and it comes with a solid hit rate of 1 in 500K spins.

Excalibur Unleashed Slot Features
The premium symbols pay between 5 and 25 x your stake for 5 of a kind wins, and all symbols pay both ways in this game. You can land Wild symbols on reels 1 and 5 only, and they step in for pay symbols to help complete wins. Wilds always expand to cover the full reel when they appear, and wilds can also come with a multiplier of x2 to x10, x12, x15, or x20. Multiplier values are added together before being applied if more than one wild is part of the same win.
The Bonus Round triggers when you land wilds on reels 1 and 5 in the same spin, and this gives you 6 free spins. The triggering wilds expand to fill both reels, and they remain sticky for the duration of the bonus round. The wild multipliers of the sticky wilds increase by +1 when the wilds take part in a win, and you also get +1 extra spin when both wilds take part in the same win. Finally, non-UK players, and anyone eligible, can purchase the bonus round for 85x the stake. The triggering wilds will have a multiplier of x1 to x20.
The 200 Spins Excalibur Unleashed Slot Experience
You get a decent taste of the base game before we purchase and trigger the bonus round at 1:24 into the 3:40-minute highlights video. We got an x3 and x4 starting multiplier for the triggering wilds, and you can see for yourself how we fared by hitting the play button below.
There are plenty of King Arthur slots out there that take themselves oh so seriously with fancy knights in shining armors. Excalibur Unleashed goes in the opposite direction, and the animal angle may come across as refreshing to some players. It may come across as a bit silly to others, but the game itself is enjoyable either way. The full reel multiplier wilds are hardly super innovative, but you cannot deny the effectiveness of this tried and tested feature.
The spin that triggers the bonus round can lead to a decent payout as well, since you get full reel multiplier wilds up to x20 on both reel 1 and 5. The feature triggers every 179 spins on average, which is decent, and the 5,000x potential comes with a solid 1 in 500,000 spins hit rate. The volatility is high though, and you will get plenty of dead spins with low wins sprinkled in-between in the base game. Excalibur Unleashed is a solid game overall, without being revolutionary in any way.
