You’ll recognise this Excalibur’s Choice mobile slot as it’s a 10 payline game with wilds, free spins and expanding scatter pays. But there’s one important difference.
Anyone who has played gambling fruit slots for a while will recognise the mechanics here, mostly because they’ve been taken straight from the Book of Ra Deluxe slot.
The problem here is not the wins or the mechanics, but how much you have to bet to make it pay.
Which is the main reason this Excalibur’s Choice slot got 3 stars, where others may have gotten 4 or 5-star slot reviews.
If you bet less than 2 a spin, the RTP lowers to 94%. Which is very low. If you bet more than 2 a spin, it increases to 96%, which is much more gratifying.
And we hate casino games that do that or hide this information. You can technically be a casual gambler, thinking you’re playing a copy of your favourite Book of Ra game at 0.10 a spin, but not know how few chances you have of winning big.
Granted, for a game about the ancient myth of King Arthur and the round table, this isn’t that impressive in looks either.
You have 5 small reels, with generic crowns, rings and a king that looks more like D’Artagnan than any old King of the Brits.
But if you can bet 2 a spin or more, and hit the free spins, there are good wins to be had in this real money slot game, because expanding scatters pay well in the bonus games.
That said, if we have a choice, we’d pick any of the ones we mentioned above over this tall tale.

Wilds: The Excalibur sword is the wild and the scatter symbol and replaces any other symbol to create a win over the 10 payline.
Free Games with Expanding Scatters: 3 or more Excalibur swords on the reels will award you 10 free spins.
You will then get one random symbol chosen to be a special symbol. This special symbol will expand to cover the reel and pay out like a scatter.
They don't need to be adjacent to each other to pay, just anywhere on the reels.
Will the lady of the lake gives you the famed sword, and with it, wins to make you rich as a king? Almost definitely.
But only as long as you are willing to bet your fortune to get it, as otherwise, the RTP of this Excalibur's Choice slot on mobile lowers to unplayable.
You get all those expanding scatters and free spins, but better graphics, betting range and wins.
The Excalibur's Choice is a 10 payline slot wild wilds that are also scatters, and triggers 10 free spins with expanding scatters symbol pays.
