Highly playable and hugely popular, Lancelot Slot is by WMS Gaming, the makers of the popular slot Zeus 1000. Based on the well-known member of King Arthur’s legendary Knights of the Round Table, a close friend of the famous monarch and lover of Queen Guinevere.
There are five reels and four rows, a generous number of Paylines (40 in all), plus an equally bountiful free spins feature. Travel back in time to a mystical world where there are untold riches to be discovered! All to a musical backing track that’s been described as ‘nice if not particularly Arthurian’.
Interestingly, King Arthur himself is notable only by his absence from this game.
How to play
Straightforward enough for the newest player to get their head around, Lancelot Slot suits all level of gambling experience. Coin sizes range from a penny to £200. You’ll find the usual Spin and Autoplay buttons and have the option to adjust the coin value and the number of Paylines played.
Symbols include acorns representing the oak tree where our hero and heroine would hold their trysts, yellow roses, a crown, a shield, two rings and a helmet. Among the higher-paying icons are Excalibur, Camelot, Gawain and the Green Knight and Merlin.
Lancelot slot special features
Lancelot and Guinevere are the main characters in this game and serve as its Wild icons. They also appear stacked on the reels, which can only mean more winning combos!
Both can help you launch the free spins round described below, payout identically, and replace all other symbols on the reels. And, by the way, these icons also double up as the Scatters.
Lancelot Slot offers the customary free spins feature, and it’s the main bonus offering here. Launch it by landing just two of the Lancelot or Guinevere Wild stacked symbols on consecutive reels, beginning from the left-hand side. You can then enjoy freebie whirls as follows, winning more the more Wilds you land, as follows:
- 5 Lancelot or Guinevere Wilds = a whopping 50 free spins
- 4 Lancelot or Guinevere Wilds = 20 free spins
- 3 Lancelot or Guinevere Wilds = 10 free spins
- 2 Lancelot or Guinevere Wilds = 5 free spins
Any wins during this round are doubled, and the feature can also be retriggered, allowing you to win more spins as shown above.
If both Wilds form part of the five symbols making up a winning combo, half the standard 1,250-coin jackpot is yours.
Return to Player (RTP)
With an RTP that’s really quite low at just over 92%, you’ll want to make the most of that free spins round.
Low rollers and new players who aren’t keen on excessive risk-taking are likely to particularly appreciate Lancelot Slot. That’s because you can play with just a single Payline and minimal stakes yet still win free spins. (That doesn’t mean more experienced players won’t enjoy it, too.)
Clearly you’ll also want to check this one out if you enjoy history-themed slots and classic tales. It’s been said that, in itself, Lancelot Slot doesn’t bring anything particularly new to the slots space.
But it’s got a great design with some nicely detailed graphics, and you’ll want to try it out if you’re keen on its theme, especially if you’ve already enjoyed the likes of Avalon II, Excalibur and King Arthur.
