English legends are among the most fascinating and if we are to choose one that we enjoyed since kids, it’ll definitely be the one about King Arthur. Arthur and his knights were the theme selected by the developers at Synot Games for their slot machine. They definitely wouldn’t make the legendary king mad with their creation.
Together with Arthur, you can also expect the other ingredients from the story of Avalon. There's Merlin, the golden chalice, and, of course, Excalibur. After all, what would the legendary leader be without his famous sword?
The Game’s visuals
This time SYNOT Games gave their best and visually, Mirror Shield is top-notch. The beautifully drawn graphics are nicely stylized into the medieval times and we really liked it. The graphic designers not only played with high symbols on the reels but they’ve also played with the lower-value symbols. It isn’t usually common and the lower-value symbols don’t usually get a lot of attention as it’s given elsewhere. Since it’s not like that here, we appreciate it. The sounds and music are also very pleasant. Playing the Mirror Shield online slot machine was very soothing and one just needs to spin the reels for the first time and you’re instantly transported to the medieval times.
Basic game properties
5 reels, 3 rows, and 10 winning lines. The Mirror Shield slot machine is a classic. It works based on the proven template from SYNOT and there’s basically no reason for it to be different. Wins are, of course, paid out only in case a winning combination has at least 3 symbols from the leftmost reel as a chain towards the neighboring reels. But this only applies to the basic game. With the bonuses, this changes a bit.
You can increase your prize by simply taking a page from Arthur’s book and having some courage. After each winning round, you can take a risk and use the Risk (Gamble) function. Then, guess the correct card and your prize will be doubled. But if you’re wrong, you’ll lose everything. Not always though. If you divide your prize after a successful guess, you will only lose half.
As with every good Synot slot, the Autoplay function is also present and so is Max bet.
Bonus elements of the slot machine
The Mirror Shield slot machine combines the most common and often appearing bonus elements, the Wild and Scatter symbols into a single symbol represented as a shield with the logo of a castle. If you spin it while playing, aside from the benefits you also have a guaranteed addition to your account.
The basic function is, of course, replacing missing symbols in a winning combination. But all you need is for this symbol to show up anywhere on the playing field at least 3-times and you’ll immediately receive 10 free spins with a special expanding symbol.
Free spins start by a single random symbol being selected as a special expanding symbol. During the game, it expands to the entire reel. While playing the free spins, we were pleased by the option to win even in case the symbols on the winning lines aren’t adjacent, meaning that they don’t start on the leftmost reel. And on top of that, for the duration of the bonus game, you can win additional free spins with another expanding symbol being selected. If you’ll be lucky, you will manage to expand several symbols and you’ll increase your chance of a fine prize.
Rating the Mirror Shield slot
We’ve had plenty of fun with the slot machine on the path through English legends. This simple slot machine entertained us with its visuals and mainly with its bonuses. We recommend that you at least try it.
