Alexander Dumas’ classic novel about The Three Musketeers, those infamous guards of the French court, has spouted numerous films and TV shows. Playtech have looked to the sword-swinging trio and their rookie D’Artagnan for inspiration for this devilish slot.
The Three Musketeers and the Queen’s Diamond is a beautifully animated game with a whopping 50 paylines over 5 reels, featuring the titular heroes as they battle against the evil Cardinal Richelieu to uncover the Queen’s stolen treasure.
The game is rendered in stunning 3D graphics, the reels decorated as a makeshift theatre in the French countryside overlooking a castle, accompanied by a fitting regal soundtrack. The symbols of the game are also relics of the era – from parchments of royal decrees to crowns and jewels, as well as weaponry like duelling pistols and cutlasses.
Look out for the Wild, which only appears on the middle three reels. The three musketeers, Porthos, Athos and Aramis, appear as scatter symbols. If they appear on certain reels accompanied by their chosen weapon on the right, it triggers a bonus round. The chosen musketeer will leap from the reels onto the ground, and slice a rope, covering one reel in a Wild for the next spin. There is also the chance of striking it rich by hitting on all three of the musketeers.
Not to be left out, if a player lands the musketeers' trustee trainee D’Artagnan on reels two and four, this unlocks the Queen’s Diamond bonus round. Players are granted two lives at the start of their quest, which are spread out over five stages. In each stage they can win more hearts. If they manage to get to the final stage, they have a one in three chance of uncovering the queen’s diamond, which could multiply the total bonus win by a factor of seven.
