The medieval genre is a crowded one in online slots. But that didn't scare off WGS Technology from making Grail Maiden, a 5-reel, 243 Ways to Win slot. This game is eye-catching because the graphics remind one of illustrations in old books about knights, maidens and castles. What else does Grail Maiden slots have to offer you? Find out as we cover this game's symbols, betting and features.
Symbols and Betting
Grail Maiden's symbols include a coat of arms, castle tower, horse, knight, maiden, grail and generic letters. As mentioned before, these symbols look like they belong in an old fairy tale, or even something from a church stained glass window. While these aren't the most-advanced slots graphics, they look really unique when compared to the industry.
If you're unfamiliar with 243 Ways to Win slots, they give you 243 paylines. This being the case, you must bet a minimum of $0.25 to spin the reels. The largest bet that you can make is $100.00 per spin. We don't really think that this game will appeal to high rollers, but it's at least nice that players can bet big if they want.
Grail Maiden Features: Grail Bonus and Multipliers
The grail is the wild symbol, appearing on reels 2, 3, and 4 and substituting for everything except the coat of arms. The coat of arms is the scatter symbol, multiplying payouts by 2x (3 symbols), 10x (4 symbols) and 50x (5 symbols).
The most-prominent feature in this game is the Grail Bonus, which can occur through one of two ways:
1) Knight on reel 1, one or more grails on reels 2, 3 and 4, and a maiden on reel 5.
2) Maiden on reel 1, one or more grails on reels 2, 3 and 4, and a knight on reel 5.
You receive 5 free spins in the Grail Bonus, and triggering grail symbols become expanded wilds and fill up an entire reel. The Grail Bonus can be re-triggered on reels where there aren't expanded wilds. While the Grail Bonus isn't a detailed second-screen round, we have to say that it's more exciting than your average free spins round.
Play Grail Maiden Mobile
Grail Maiden is available on Android, iOS Apple and Windows products, allowing you to take this medieval adventure anywhere on your smartphone or tablet.
In summary, we think that Grail Maiden ranks above average for a medieval online slot. The graphics are unique and there are enough non-generic symbols to keep this game interesting. We also like how the Grail Bonus gives you expanding wilds during free spins. The only thing we can see wrong with this game is that it doesn't have enough bonus features to compete with newer games. But other than this, Grail Maiden is a solid slots game.
