Yggdrasil and Reelplay embark on epic quest in Towering Pays™ Excalibur


Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Yggdrasil and ReelPlay are travelling back to the land of King Arthur in Towering Pays™ Excalibur.

The five reel, increasing paylines slot sees the Towering Pays™ mechanic return to the offering, with King Arthur himself acting as a wild.

When Excalibur lands on the reels, it will transform into stacked matching symbols for increased win potential.

If Excalibur symbols are present across a winning combination, players will progress to the next stage, which sees the reel set expand, adding an extra row atop the grid, which can continue until the grid is 5×8.

During base play, players can also purchase a Quest Bet, enabling a hold and spin feature, costing 15 units. This is then triggered if six or more shields occur on a single spin, or through the feature wheel.

Three feature wheels landing will activate the game’s wheel in full, with four levels of wheel available. These will award a variety of free spins, better feature wheel or win spins.

The Avalon feature is triggered when Excalibur lands on each of the first three reels in the 5×8 grid, offering huge win potential on every spin.

Four separate forms of free spins are available, Lancelot, Merlin, Arthur and Camelot, all of which have increasing prize multipliers, extended spins through the presence of Excalibur, and more modifiers for mammoth wins.

In certain jurisdictions, players can also progress straight to the bonus round through the Buy Feature.

Towering Pays™ Excalibur is the newest YG Masters release from ReelPlay and Games Labs, with the two working together to provide standout content across the initiative.

The title is powered by GATI, with Yggdrasil’s state-of-the-art technology enabling partners to employ the preconfigured, regulation-ready, standardised development toolkit to produce consistently cutting-edge content followed by rapid distribution.

Stuart McCarthy, Head of Product and Programs at Yggdrasil, said: “Towering Pays™ Excalibur is another exciting addition to our offering that’s packed with modifiers, stages and features to appeal to players of all tastes.

“This truly epic quest allows players to wield the magical power of the legendary sword, Excalibur, as they are transported to the lands of Arthurian legend in search for big wins.”

David Johnson, CEO at ReelPlay, said: “Our collaboration with Games Labs has seen us create some incredible games and Towering Pays™ Excalibur is no exception. The engaging, immersive and feature-filled game takes players on a thrilling journey and offers an unforgettable experience.”
