Monty Pythons Spamalot
We’re massive fans of the Monty Python films, so hearing about this game slot was super exciting and had us imagining reels being squished with massive foots and an armless and legless knight next to the reels. Safe to say then that we had some pretty high expectations. Here’s how the reels actually fared when we put them to the test.
What’s it all about?
This game features 5 reels and 20 payline that are stuffed full of Monty Python characters; here you’ll be spinning reels that feature King Arthur, Sir Lancelot, Sir Robin and Sir Galahad, to name but a few.
Any Bonus Rounds/Special Features?
The Bonus Games
Spinning the Bonus symbol on reels 1 and 5 at the same time will see you triggering the bonus games. The main game here is very much built like a theatre show that has four separate acts. Each act is therefore represented by a different bonus game, with them all being triggered in the same way. Here’s the order in which the games shall run:
– Storm the Castle Bonus
– None Shall Pass Bonus
– Knights Who Say Ni Bonus
– Killer Rabbit Bonus
Storm the Castle Bonus
During this round the knights are storming the Castle to get at the French. Here you’ll have a choice between 6 strategic spots, then the French will throw a cow at you. If you’re not hit then you’ll win a cash prize and get to choose a spot once more, if you are however you’ll be returned to the main game.
None Shall Pass Bonus
Here you’ll need to take swings with your sword at the knight blocking your path. Managing to hit a limb will win you a cash prize, however if you make an unsuccessful attempt your multiplier will be lowered (this multiplier begins at 5x).
Knights Who Say Ni Bonus
During this round you’ll need to collect a Shrubbery and take it to the knights who will then reveal the cash value of it (you can choose to try again, where they’ll give you a new value, up to a total of three times).
Killer Rabbit Bonus
Here you’ll be attempting to cross a path where a Giant Killer Rabbit may be hiding. To kill the rabbit you’ll need to throw a grenade at one of the 5 displayed rocks. If you guess the rabbits location incorrectly then the knights will be eaten and the round will close. If you choose correctly however you’ll win a cash prize for each knight that crosses the path.
The Free Games round is triggered by the spinning of 3 or more of the Monty Python Scatter symbols. This awards 10 free games.
The Holy Grail Jackpot Game
During the game you will collect ‘The Holy Grail’ symbols where they’ll then be displayed on top of the reels. Collecting 5 will launch the Jackpot game. Here you’ll then need to follow the path to the Holy Grail, going through 6 levels. At every level you’ll need to make a choice to proceed. You can win instant cash prizes all the way, however if the dreaded giant foot steps on you then that’s the end of the round.
Making it to the top will see you win the progressive jackpot, which (at the time of writing) stood at a staggering £1,500,000!!
How does it look?
This game looks exactly as you’d expect it to if you’ve seen the Monty Python films before, and if you haven’t then you’re in for a real treat. This great design is coupled with some seriously well thought out bonus rounds.
This game is amazing on all fronts and when all of this is teamed with what can be one of the biggest jackpots we’ve ever seen we’d say that we’ve found ourselves a new favourite slot game. Overall this is one slot that you should be checking out today!
