King Cashalot Review

king-cashalotWe are not quite sure where King Cashalot fits into the classic Arthurian myths, but we are fairly certain if there was a knight or king by that name seated around the Round Table, the place may not have been so melancholy.

Obviously King Cashalot has nothing to do with the romantic days of Knights and Damsels. In truth, it is one of the fine, five reel offerings that players will find on sites that make use of Microgaming technology. King Cashaolot is in fact one of the most popular slot machines in cyberspace.

As the name implies, this particular machine is based around a medieval theme. The images that flash in front of the players are of kings, queens, knights and damsels. Basically anything that would not seem out of place at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino will be built in the graphics of King Cashalot.

This game is a progressive slot, so the jackpot that is offered may start at $100,000, but can grow to absolutely massive numbers. Since its introduction, Microgaming estimates that the jackpot is hit, on average, around the $500,000 range, but in the past, it has exceeded $1,000,000. To win the jackpot a player must be playing max coins and get 5 king symbols on the 9th payline.

This game also offers some special symbols as well as bonuses. Symbols of particular interest to the players are as follows:

  • The King as a Wild Symbol. The King symbol serves as a wild symbol as well as multiplier symbol. This means that it can be used as a substitute for any other symbol in order to complete a winning combination. The exception to this rule is that it cannot be used as the Jester symbol in order to complete scatter winning combinations, or the Dragon symbol to activate the bonus game.
  • The King as a Multiplier Symbol. If the King symbol is used to complete a winning combination, the payout is doubled.
  • The Jester as a Scatter Symbol. The Jester is used as a scatter symbol. This means it is in play wherever it appears. It does not need to appear as part of a particular payline to win. As long as two or more Jester symbols appear somewhere, you win.

This game also offers a rather nice Bonus Feature. If you want to play the Treasure bonus game you will need to score three dragon symbols. The triplet of dragons must be scattered on reels 2, 3, and 4. The King symbol cannot be used in place of a Dragon.

The bonus game itself is very straightforward. You are offered a number of treasure chests to choose from, and you get the contents of the one you click on. The amount of money in the chest is multiplied by how many coins you bet per payline and the number of paylines you had in play. Obviously the biggest bonuses are won by those playing max coins and max paylines. The bonuses in the past have proven worth the investment.

You can play this game for real money at LuckyNugget.
