Monty Python’s Spamalot Review
|Our Rating:||3.5 / 5|
- Great theme. Appropriate medieval imagery perfectly matches the game setting well.
- Plenty of interesting bonus features.
- Massive wins available.
- Those who aren’t familiar with the British comedy institution that is Monty Python might struggle to enjoy the game.
The top jackpots during Monty Python’s Spamalot are all inspired by King Arthur’s court. Landing five-of-a-kind across any win line will pay the following for each:
- Holy Grail (wild) = 5,000x the pay line bet.
- King Arthur = 600x the pay line bet.
- Lady of the Lake = 400x the pay line bet.
- Sir Lancelot, Sir Robin, or Sir Galahad = 300x the pay line bet.
Without doubt, one of the strongest features of this slot machine is its extensive bonus rounds. There’s loads of different ones to activate, and they really add a great deal to the replay value of the machine.
Land the “Bonus” symbol anywhere on reels one and five simultaneously during the main game and you’ll trigger one of four different bonus games. Each bonus game is treated like a different act in a screen play. They follow each other sequentially.
Storm the Castle Bonus
During this bonus game, players must select one of six strategic posts to storm the castle from. The castle is occupied by the French forces who, for whatever reason, think it’s good military practice to launch cows at their attackers. After the player picks a position, a cow gets flung.
If it hits the soldiers, the bonus ends, if it misses, a cash prize is won. This continues until the soldiers are defeated.
None Shall Pass Bonus
In this game, a brave knight blocks King Arthur’s path. We must attack him for cash prizes and a multiplier. There is a total of four opportunities to strike the knight, and each portion of their body awards different prizes. Striking successfully increases the prize, missing decreases it. After four attempts your total is tallied and awarded.
Knights Who Say Ni Bonus
Players must collect a shruberry and bring it to the knights. The knights will then reveal the cash value of the shruberry. If the prize is a good one, it can be collected immediately, if players think they can do better, you can take another try.
There is a total of three attempts that can be made at picking a high value shruberry. Players have no choice on the last pick. Whatever the value, the prize must be collected.
Killer Rabbit Bonus
During the Killer Rabbit bonus, the six knights must cross the path without getting maimed by a killer rabbit that lays in hiding. Players must throw grenades at one of five rocks then attempt the crossing. If the grenade missed the rabbit, the knight will be eaten and the next one will take a turn.
If the player manages to hit the rabbit, all remaining knights will cross safely. Each knight that crosses the path successfully will win a cash prize.
Monty Python’s Free Games
Landing three or more Monty Python’s “scatter” logos anywhere on the reels will trigger ten free games with additional random wilds, and potentially the Holy Grail Jackpot Game. During free games, after every spin up to five Holy Grail wild symbols are randomly distributed across the reels – increasing your chances of a big win dramatically.
Holy Grail Jackpot Game
During free games, collecting five “The Jackpot Game” symbols will win entry into the Holy Grail Jackpot games. The Jackpot game will automatically begin following the free games round.
The path to the Holy Grail Jackpot has six levels, at every turn players must choose an item in the next level to win a cash prize, and a chance to proceed to the up the levels.
After every level, a giant foot may appear from the sky and step on you. This ends the game immediately. The final level has just two objects to select from, and each has a different jackpot under it. Players should note that the higher their bet is during the main game, the greater the chances they have of receiving a larger jackpot.
In addition to the characters from Arthur’s court, there are several other symbols that pay lesser prizes in the game. These have been taken from the top end of a standard deck of playing cards (A, K, Q, J, 10). Hitting five-of-a-king for each of these will pay as follows:
- Ace, or King = 200x the pay line bet.
- Queen, Jack, or ten = 120x the pay line bet.
Players have the freedom to adjust the number of win lines played on the slot, and the amount bet per line. There are twenty win lines playable, and the maximum and minimum bet on each are £50, and 1p respectively. This makes the highest possible bet per spin an impressive £1,000, and the lowest just 1p.
What We Think
Monty Python’s Spamalot is a great game with plenty of nods to the movie’s that inspired it. Those who are fans of the classic British comedy will certainly appreciate this slot. Unfortunately, a great many of the jokes will be lost on those who are unfamiliar with the franchise.
That said, the extensive selection of bonus features could provide enough enjoyment without the need to understand every reference to the original material.
