Are you a lover of history and warfare? If you, you are surely familiar with the medieval crusades and some of the great battles of the period and one of the leading software providers in the iGaming industry has decided to revisit this very battle and give us all a chance to take part in it.
Coming from Elk Studio, Crusader is a spectacular video slot release coming live to online casinos on March 17th. The slot is set to take us into the past, to the historical Battle of Acre, the Crusader’s last stand in the Holy Land against the mighty Saracen armies.
The Acre is a theme that we saw often mentioned in numerous historical TV shows and movies and now every slot player will have a chance to take part in it and add his contribution to the crusades on either side of the battle.
Crusader slot features some familiar gameplay mechanics, along with a few less common ones. The game starts out with 26 paylines in total, scattered across the five reels. Each spin can award Crusader Wilds on reels 1 and 5, which are stacked wild symbols which re-spin and nudge until they appear fully on the screen.
The appearance of both Crusader Wilds activates the Crusader slot’s bonus game. During the bonus game, reels 1 and 5 are blessed with static wilds and expansion symbols appear on the reels. The bonus game starts out with 8 free spins and each expansion symbol adds another free spin and adds one additional symbol to its row.
Both regular wild symbols and all other symbols appear on the reels in stacks, making it possible to generate massive wins when stacks of matching symbols appear across the reels. The maximum possible win on the Crusader slot amounts to 2.500x your stake, with the bets ranging between 20 and 100 coins, making the maximum possible bet per spin EUR 100.
Elk Studios have released a number of impressive games over the year, but Crusader seems to be the kind of game that will climb high to the top of their portfolio pretty fast. Not only will the game feature a fun historical theme that many are already familiar with, but its dynamics and gameplay mechanics also make it a great candidate for all slot lovers to enjoy.
According to the developers, the game was designed using the latest in the web technologies and with support for Canvas and WebGL it will be able to adapt to any device and screen size regardless of whether it is a mobile phone, desktop computer or any other type of gadget. Crusader is hitting the casinos in just over a week now and the massive historic clash is bound to make slot fans jump up from their chairs in excitement and joy.
