King Arthur themed slots never tend to go out of fashion, so it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that this is the theme Quickspin has chosen to go with for their Mighty Arthur slot.
Unusually for an Arthurian legend themed slot, though, there is a mix of fantastical and fitting imagery on the reels. Sure, you get the Holy Grail cup, and what is most likely Guinevere, but you also have glowing magical books, which seem slightly out of place.
Quickspin are known for their ability to offer cracking graphics in their slots, but these seem to have gone walkies from this release.
The graphics certainly aren’t bad by any stretch, but they aren’t 3D, which is something we have come to expect from this developer of late. As for the gameplay, the slot has been kitted with a decent array of features, befitting your average Quickspin video slot.
How to play
This is a game which offers a basic, 5-reel, 20-line format. Those lines are rigid, so don’t expect to be able to alter them at will.
Instead, a total bet button will see your stakes range from just $0.20 per spin up to $100 a spin on this game, which in theory makes Mighty Arthur affordable for all players.

Expanding wild symbols: Arthur can appear as an expanding wild symbol. More importantly, it can also crop up as a colossal wild. Although it only appears on the third reel in both the base game and the free spins bonus, it can expand and occupy adjacent reels, which does wonders for players hoping to land sizeable jackpots.
Random wild symbols: A second type of wilds in this game are random wilds. They appear as Merlin, the fabled wizard of Arthurian legend. Merlin wilds can show up on the all 5 reels in the base game and the free spins bonus and can generate between 2 and 6 random wilds anywhere on the reels when they do so.
Standard wilds: Alongside both random and expanding wilds are standard wilds. These single icon substitute symbols can replace all symbols barring bonus icons, just like their more adventurous sister wilds.
Bonus symbols: These crest/shield emblems have a crown and the word “bonus” written on them, so they shouldn’t be hard to miss. They can appear on the first, third and fifth reels, and will trigger a free spins bonus when they appear on all 3 at once.
Free spin bonus: Players get to enjoy a total of 10 free games in the bonus round. There is nothing overly special about the free games feature, although being able to continue to prosper from three types of wilds is rather nifty.
The standard wild symbol (the purple emblem) is the joint best-paying symbol in Mighty Arthur. It (alongside Guinevere) can offer up wins worth as much as 7.5x your total bet when 5 such symbols appear on a winning line.
Mighty Arthur is a generic King Arthur themed slot, and a generic Quickspin slot to boot. There isn’t too much to get excited about in relation to its theme, but the triple wild symbols which appear in this game will certainly send players giddy.
For that reason alone, it’s a fair bet that there will be a lot of attention devoted to the latest Arthurian legend slot to hit online casinos.
