ABOUT THE THREE MUSKETEERS AND THE QUEEN'S DIAMOND SLOTS
Join Porthos, Athos and Aramis on their quest to find the queen's diamond that was stolen from the castle and you will experience some amazing adventures along the way. Young D'Artagnan is also on hand to help as he bring some fresh blood to the three ageing musketeers, but they act as a very good unit and should ultimately get the job done. Play your part in helping the four men locate the diamond and you, too, will be showered with presents by the grateful queen.
One look at The Three Musketeers video slot will tell you this is one of Playtech's most accomplished works as the graphics and game play do look quite impressive. The game is played at five reels and fifty paylines, while there is one special feature linked to each of the three musketeers, plus slot players can take advantage of The Free Musketeers Free Games and five-level The Queen's Diamond Bonus.
HOW TO PLAY
Even if the game contains no less than 50 paylines, players can activate between one and fifty lines, although playing at the maximum will give them the best winning chance. Meanwhile, line bet ranges from $0.01 to $100, meaning they can wager up to staggering $5,000 per single spin of the reels. Bet max, auto play and turbo mode options are supported.
Wild symbol is stacked and it appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. It is used to substitute for regular game icons whenever it is possible to form a winning combination, but it cannot replace the five feature symbols that include four musketeers and a Free Games icon. Porthos, Athos and Aramis all act as Scatters, whilst D'Artagnan is the Bonus symbol.
You won't find many games with better extra features selection than The Three Musketeers, seeing as how the game contains no less than five of these. The Mighty Musketeers Features include Wild Muskets of Athos, Splendid Sword of Porthos and Golden Daggers of Aramis, while things get really exciting once you unlock The Free Musketeers Free Games and The Queen's Diamond Bonus.
The Queen's Diamond Bonus is the main bonus game and it is triggered when two D'Artagnan icons occur in any position on reels 2+4. Your quest begins with two hearts, with additional hearts and gold coins collected during your journey. Each correct pick ensures you progress through to the next round and keep all the accumulated prizes. There are five stages that you need to complete for maximum winnings.
One or more Free Games icons on reel 1 and one or more Free Games symbols on reel 5 activate the Free Spins round. The player is awarded 3 free games for each Free Games icon that triggered the feature. More free games can be won indefinitely.
Athos, Porthos and Aramis icons all act as Scatters, multiplying total bet 2x and 7x for two and three symbols appearing anywhere, while each of those also unlocks a mini feature. Wild Muskets of Athos is activated when muskets symbol appears to the immediate right of Athos icon, with one re-spin awarded where Wild is randomly distributed on reels 2+3+4. Sword icon appearing to the immediate right of Porthos symbol awards one re-spin where en entire reel turns Wild, whilst golden daggers occurring to the right of Aramis symbol allow you to choose one of two bags of gold for instant prize.
With all those special features on display and not that difficult to unlock, it is not difficult to understand why base line payouts are far from impressive. The top payout stands at mere 250 credits and it is awarded when five matching high-value symbols occur on an active payline. High-value symbols include sword, muskets and golden daggers, or the favourite weapons of the three musketeers.
