Coral present Game of the Day: Spamalot

| 23.02.2015

Hello and thank you for joining us for another installment of game of the day – where we bring you new of the latest, greatest and most exciting casino games around. Today, god be praised, we have a quest; to find the Holy Grail for King Arthur with Monty Python’s Spamalot – a 5 reel, 20 payline slot built by Playtech.

The Monty Python comedy troupe included such luminaries as Graham Chapman, John Cleese and
Eric Idle, and left us with some infinitely quotable classics like The Life of Brian and The Meaning of Life. This slot is most closely based on the all time classic “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”, using symbols from Arthurian legend – Sir Galahad, the Lady of the Lake and King Arthur all appear. The Holy Grail itself acts as a wild symbol, substituting for any paying symbol to create winning paylines.

Spamalot contains no less than 4 bonus games, but they are all played in sequence any time
you land the bonus “Monty Python” scatter on reels 1 and 5. First you “Storm the Castle” with 6 brave knights, but the crafty French inside will try to catapult a cow to prevent your assault. You choose from 6 positions to attack from, revealing a prize each time. If the cow hits you lose but, if it misses, you proceed and pick another position. Afterwards you’ll be challenged by a Ridiculously Brave Knight (a nod to the Holy Grail film) and have 4 attempts to chop off 1 of his limbs. For each of your 4 attempts which are successful you gain a cash prize.

Next you present the Knights Who Say Ni with shrubbery and wait for them to make you an offer.
You have 3 opportunities to decline their offer and hope for a better price – but be careful as you have to accept the final one. Finally the bonus round ends with a search for a Killer Rabbit; you pick a rock and throw a grenade behind it, before 1 of your 6 brave knights crosses over. If you killed the rabbit your knights will pass safely, if not they get eaten! Each knight to reach the other side safely earns you a cash prize.

Spamalot has successfully taken on the style and humour of the Pythons to create a slot game that is both fun and very funny. The bonus rounds are a non stop highlight reel of some of their most iconic sketches, which is bound to bring a smile to anyone who has enjoyed their work before. Remember, he who is valiant and pure in spirit may find the Holy Grail in the Castle of aaaarghhh, but if you don’t know where to find it then Spamalot, available in our Games Tab or downloadable client, is a good place to start!
