Whats not so hot?
With 20 paylines and 5 Reels this medieval slots machine is ready to bedazzle you. The game has 5 bonus features but to tap into these exquisite riches you must beguile the ‘Archery Picker’-here you can win a whopping top jackpot cash prize of 200 times your stake. Of the 5 bonus modes the biggest wins occur during ‘Joust Free Spins’ feature where you’ll receive 7 free spins.
Due to all the bonus rounds the slots comes highly recommended and offers a return to player payout percentage of 96.5% which is higher than your average slots. Be whisked off to a time of nights in shining armour, funny court jesters and pretty damsels in distress-yup you guessed it it’s a medieval themed-slots.
Symbols that appear on the reels are kings, queens, knights, wilds, jester hats, pretty princesses and the scatter symbol. The Medieval Money logo is symbol that offers the highest jackpot-5 of them pays 1,000 times your stake. Graphics wise the symbols look sharp and colourful and the slots is quite entertaining to boot.
In typical IGT fashion the coin range is pretty diverse, bets can be made from as little as 20 pence per spin up to a robust £600. Before you fire away make sure you’ve selected the right coin range otherwise you’ll wager more cash than you intended to. An ‘Auto Play’ feature automatically spins the reels for you if you’re busy, or if you want to make a quick cup of coffee and don’t want to interrupt your play.
Wild The target is the bonus symbol, when 3 of them pitch on the 3 centre reel the Archery Picker bonus mode is triggered. A screen opens up displaying 9 targets, click on all of them to reveal a bonus mode.
Money Bags Picker
Three money bags appear but you must only choose one to reveal the cash prize you’ve won-you can win anything from 2 to 50 times your stake.
Joust Free Spins
The free spins mode is triggered when the red and blue Knight Helmet wilds appear on the same payline, 7 free spins will be awarded. The red and blue knights will then enter into a jousting contest. If the blue knight wins the blue icons between the Helmet symbols are turned into wilds. Should the red knight win, the red symbols become wild. The key here is to get the two wilds on the 1st and 5th reel.
The Spell Picker
A wizard appears with 5 mystery bottles each containing a spell-if you picked the right bottle you can win as much as 100 times your initial bet. So make sure you pick the right bottle, the wizard also offers you a bottle but you can decline it. It safe to say work on wins of up to 20x your stake during this bonus mode.
This is the last bonus mode, here you must spin the reel which contains numbers, the number you’ve spun determines the path you must follow. If the wheel lands on a skull the bonus round ends and you’ll return to the main game. The cash prizes increase as you work your way up the path, you can win as much as 200 times your stake if you successfully plunder the Dragon’s treasure pile.
Medieval Money is quite an entertaining slotsand hats off to IGT for coming up with something unique for a change. The 5 bonus modes keeps things interesting especially if those wilds pop up during the free spins feature. Of the two bonus modes the Dragon’s Path and Joust Free Spins feature offer the best payouts.
