Excalibur's Choice is a ‘book of…’ type of slot from Barcrest with some high-paying symbols. This 5x3 slot with 10 paylines has a fantasy theme and decent potential.

We wouldn’t say Excalibur’s Choice was packed with features - there’s just one symbol to look out for, which is Excalibur itself. It acts a both the wild and the scatter. Land three or more to trigger free spins with an expanding symbol, a feature familiar to all fans of ‘book of…’ slots.

The simplicity of the gameplay means it’s perfect for beginners, who also stand to land some lucrative wins with symbols worth up to 500x your stake. It’s optimised for mobile gaming, and you can try some practice spins of this Barcrest slot demo right here at Slots Temple.

Theme, Graphics & Soundtrack

The mighty Excalibur is the sword of the legendary Arthur, who drew it out of a stone when he was a boy. Another legend says Arthur was given Excalibur by the mysterious Lady of the Lake - when he lay dying he ordered Sir Belvedere to throw the sword back in the water, where a hand rose up to catch it and take it back to the depths.

In 2017, seven-year-old Matilda Jones was playing in Dozmary Pool, reputed to be the lake of Arthurian legend, when she found a sword on the lake bed. Could it be the legendary Excalibur? No one knows...

Excalibur’s choice is who shall be king, but in this slot it’s a little more prosaic with the Excalibur wild/scatter symbol choosing whether to award you with multiple wins or free spins. It’s a nicely crafted symbol, and there are some good win animations of the knight on his horse, the castle, Excalibur and Arthur himself.

This could have been a good-looking slot were it not for the garishly coloured wilds that make up most of the reels and land for dead spin after dead spin. Unfortunately, they undo all the good work of the other well-drawn symbols. There’s no soundtrack - just a casino jingle on loop and a boogie-woogie piano for Arthur wins, which is just weird.

How to Play Excalibur's Choice

Barcrest have stripped away the game controls to the bare minimum, so this user interface is easy to handle. Here’s how to play:

1. Click the ? at the left end of the bar to view the paytable and game rules.

2. Click the gear-shaped icon on the row below the user interface to mute or unmute game sounds.

3. Use the + and - buttons to select a total bet for your spins in line with your session budget.

4. When you want to play, either click the spin button or the autospins button to its left to play up to 100 games with mandatory loss and win limits.

Remember to always have a session budget in place that lets you enjoy your game while protecting your bankroll. And take some breaks every now and again when you are playing.

Bonus Features

This game is all about the Excalibur symbol, which is the most powerful one in play. Taking the place of the wild and the scatter, it can create multiple wins across all paylines and trigger the free spins feature with 10 free games up for grabs.

Excalibur Free Spins

Once free spins are triggered, a symbol is chosen at random from the paytable. That becomes the SPECIAL symbol that expands and pays on all active lines. These symbols don’t have to be adjacent to win.

The free spins round can be retriggered.

Overall Review: Our Verdict

This is a traditional-looking slot, and the gameplay is similarly unexciting. Having said that, there are some big wins on offer, and it’s a great game for new players to have a crack at some big wins. The gameplay is standard ‘book of…’ stuff, so turning a high paytable symbol into an expanding one can offer rich rewards.

We also recommend the Mighty Arthur online slot from Quickspin that offers players a 96.94% RTP plus two special wilds, free spins and a mystery nudge feature.
