Alexander Dumas’ classic novel about The Three Musketeers, those infamous guards of the French court, has spouted numerous films and TV shows, but what about a slot game? Fans are in luck, because software developer 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 online slot 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 have been decorated as a makeshift theatre in the French countryside overlooking a castle. This beautiful sight is 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.
As for betting, players can bet between 0.01 and 100 per line. The paylines are adjustable, meaning you can start spinning from as low as 0.01 to as high as 5000. As usual, the slot has handy shortcuts for betting the maximum and auto play. What’s more is that you can speed up the spins using Turbo Mode. This is a perfect way to make the most of your playing time.
As you’d expect, the Three Musketeers slot has some exciting tricks up its sleeve. Look out for the Wild, which only appears on the middle three reels. This symbol can substitute for any other symbol to complete a payline, except the scatters. 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 bonus depends on the musketeer you’ve landed and can either be a respin with a random wild on reel 2, 3 or 4; a cash prize or a respin with an entire reel covered in a Wild. This increases your chances of winning significantly. If you’re lucky, there is also the chance of striking it rich by hitting 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.
As you can see, this exciting slot game does not only look good, it also offers plenty of entertainment and chances to win big.
