When it comes to how the Legendary Excalibur slot game appears, it looks slick and smooth without being particularly striking. The quality of the graphics is definitely above average, but there is nothing about them that particularly sticks in the mind when you have finished playing. The reels are set in a golden picture frame that hangs in front of a grey castle wall. There is very little additional detail to help draw you into the world of the game, and we were left a little underwhelmed by the slot’s appearance overall.
The sound effects left us with a similar impression. A nondescript tune plays when you open the game, and it continues while the reels spin, unless you choose to mute it. There are no other significantly interesting aspects of the game when it comes to sound. Little flourishes of music play when you record a win on the reels but, once again, there is nothing especially distinctive about these effects.
Watch out for Stacked Arthur Sliding onto the Reels
The symbols on the reels are detailed and look sharp but there is little that is really outstanding or distinctive about them. The lower value symbols are the usual array of letters and numbers, so you’ll see 10, J, Q, K and A on the reels. The higher value symbols are all items associated with the legend of King Arthur. You’ll see Arthur himself, as well as a goblet that could be the Holy Grail. There is also a helmet and a rose. Arthur can appear stacked on the reels.
The game’s wild symbol is the enchanted sword Excalibur. It is stacked, taking up 3 spaces on the reel on which it appears. It can substitute for all other symbols to create winning combinations for you. It also plays a role in the game’s main bonus feature, something that we’ll look at in the next section of this Legendary Excalibur slot review.
