Microgaming's Sir Winsalot Video Slot Review

February 1, 2013

 

Sir Winsalot is a game that centers around a group of guys who party a lot. They also happen to be knights. The name of this game accurately describes its style of play. You will get a lot of wins with this game because it has a paytable that is designed to pay out often instead of paying out big. People who like short sessions that don't have huge swings will really get a lot out of this game because that's essentially what it's designed for. Players who prefer longer sessions will appreciate the bonus features and frequent wins that come from the atypical wilds.

This slot has five reels and a maximum of 20 available paylines. You don't have to play with all 20 paylines activated, so you have a lot of options on how much risk you want to take on. With coin sizes between $0.01 and $0.25, you'll have a maximum bet of $25 per spin since you can bet up to five coins on each of the 20 paylines. This game is clearly not designed for high stakes players. Instead, this game is designed for low stakes and medium stakes players who want frequent wins.

The Sir Winsalot symbol is the wild symbol in this game as you might expect. These wilds are stacked on all five reels, and that makes it possible to get a lot of small and medium wins on the same spin. Five of them on the same activated payline gets you the maximum regular payout of 1,000 times your line bet. This might seem small, but what's important to realize is that getting five of a stacked wild on a payline basically guarantees that you'll pick up a number of other wins as well. In theory, you could get 20 of the 1,000x payout at the same time by covering all 15 spots on the reels with wild symbols to get a 20,000x prize.

The Party All Knight scatter symbol is the key to the Beer Fest Bonus. This is a pick a box style game. You can also get a free spins bonus feature by hitting up the Free Spins Castle scatter symbol. Three or more Party All Knight symbols gets you the Beer Fest Bonus round, and three or more of the Free Spins Castle symbols gets you 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier.
