Arthurs Fortune Slot Review – Yggdrasil Gaming
Yggdrasil Gaming is one studio who create unique games and very popular in the casino community. It has been a long time since I actually reviewed a new release, the last was back in March. Not for any particular reasons, there are just so many studios to keep up with in the casino industry now. But with the world dealing with a pandemic, many of us are in lockdown and studios are slowing down with slot production it seems. The last slot I did review is ‘Multifly‘, which I really enjoy playing in my own time and love the unique gameplay thanks to the wild multipliers. A new game has just launched by Yggdrasil Gaming, titled ‘Arthurs Fortune‘, available to play now across all sites.
Arthurs Fortune has an interesting theme, based on the Arthurian legends in the British isles. With the visuals bringing the middle ages to us with a modern touch. The background is a beautiful landscape, with a castle on top of a hill and tents in clusters in the fields with other small details. There are small noticeable animations within the sky and flags as 2 examples. The most detail is within premium symbols. I think Yggdrasil Gaming has done a good job with creating these visuals which relate to the theme very well.
This slot has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 20 set pay lines. Arthurs Fortune is a high variance game with a set RTP of 96.2% and max win capped at 10,850x. You can bet from £0.04 – £100.
