Enjoy Free Spins, Stacked Symbols and Multipliers in this Lancelot Inspired Slot
Sir Lancelot is one of the famed ‘Knights of the Round Table’ and for many, would be the first name that springs to mind. He was known as the greatest swordsman of his era and the greatest companion of King Arthur. However, his adulterous affair with Queen Guinevere would see his own downfall as well as the end of King Arthur’s kingdom.
The Lancelot online slot game focuses on the relationship between Lancelot and Guinevere – in fact, the slot could equally have been called ‘Lancelot and Guinevere’, as the queen features every bit as much as the knight.
Lancelot is a slot for those of you who enjoy historic legends, here are the key reasons to check it out:

Usually to activate a bonus feature you’ll need to land a set number of scatters, although it’s very different in this game. Starting with the leftmost reel, you’ll simply need to line up between 2 and 5 wild Lancelot or Guinevere wilds in a row. These can both be Lancelot symbols, both Guinevere symbols or a combination of the two.
As well as the generous number of spins on offer, any win during the feature will be multiplied by two. Line up two or more wild symbols during the feature and you’ll retrigger, adding the newly won number of spins to your existing total.
The free slot Lancelot features a slightly expanded 5×4 reel configuration. The number of win-lines is set as 40 by default, although players can choose to play any number between 1 and 40.
Both Lancelot and Guinevere are stacked three high. Acting as wilds, they will substitute for any other symbols in the game. They are also the joint highest paying symbols, each worth 500 coins for the maximum five in a row. A combination of the two wilds across a win line pay 250 coins. Strangely, it’s all or nothing for the two main characters – you’ll win the top prize for five in a row, but nothing for any less!
Also featuring on the reels are a host of Camelot related symbols. Merlin is next on the pay table and is worth 150, while a knight dressed in green in full battle mode pays 125 coins.
The low end of the pay table features eight different symbols that each pay 100 coins. Castle Camelot and Excalibur stand out as the two most eye-catching and relevant symbols in the mix. These are joined by a crown, two golden rings, a battle helmet, a shield, flowers and a pair of acorns.
The backdrop to the reels of this historical fiction-based slot feature the rolling hills of the English countryside, with trees scattered around. The view is obscured by the reels, maybe trying to hide the exact location of Camelot, which to this day remains a mystery.
Being stacked three high, both Lancelot and Guinevere are the stand out symbols on the reels, while Merlin and the fighting knight add a sense of mystery and action to the game. The soundtrack is a generic one in the base game, while moving into the feature will see this upgraded to a more heraldic and resounding sound.
Despite perhaps having a title that should relate to both Lancelot and Guinevere, this slot is an enjoyable one. It’s not often that you’ll find a game where a feature symbol also acts as a wild, and it’s even less common for there to be two! This gives the game a unique feel throughout. The number of spins in the feature can be impressive, while the 2x multiplier is always a handy touch. Overall there could be more variety, with a second screen bonus in addition perhaps.
