This is not how many of us imagine medieval times: Princesses with mobile phones, steeds wearing headphones, smashing knights with sparkly teeth, bright colours and a triumphant soundtrack. But that is what you get with Chain Mail. And then some.
The fun and colourful symbols are arranged on five reels and three rows and offer a total of twenty paylines. Even in medieval times wild and scatter symbols were around to enhance your chances at winning. Should you be so lucky and get three or more scatter symbols on the reels, they will trigger the 5 level bonus game.
Once you find yourself inside the bonus game, you have to be a true knight and move from level 1 to level 5 to rescue the princess, evading the king at all cost.
You will encounter three relevant symbols within the bonus game: the Win All symbol, the Free Spin trigger symbol and the Angry King. Each of the five levels has one Win All symbol. One Free Spin trigger symbol can be found on levels 3, 4 and 5, which is also the case for the Angry King symbol.
Since there are seven objects on each of the five levels, the remaining doors that are not hiding any of the three main symbols award cash prizes instead.
On each level you will either need to win the Win All symbol (which, of course, shows the Princess) or a value amount, which requires more cunning that heroic efforts. Keep a look out for The Angry King symbol inside the bonus game. It acts as a booby trap here, meaning the bonus feature will end, defeating the knight and his sparkly teeth, sending him back into the base game for another attempt.
You consolation prize comes in the form of free spins. When the Castle Bonus feature comes to an end one way or another, the free spins will be come into play, providing you’ve collected any. Since each Free Spin trigger symbol awards 10 spins and a 2x multiplier, a total of 30 free spins can be awarded, if all three symbols have been picked up.
Alas, outside of the bonus game, no free spins can be triggered by any means.
The fortune that your heroic knight can win amounts to 120.000 coins, which will most definitely enable you to outfit the princess with a new mobile phone and your steed with a pair of headphones.
The graphics are very colourful and richly detailed, adding to the overall fun and atmosphere of the game. The soundtrack is just as upbeat as the design of the game and has been inspired by medieval music, which will easily get you into the groove of the game and may even have you jiggle your feet whilst spinning the wheel.
