On the Trail to the Holy Grail
You won’t need any more than a single guess to figure out what this new Playtech release is all about, as Monty Python’s Spamalot is literally as self explanatory as it gets. The entire game is themed around the famous West End show, so you can expect to find plenty of both familiar and weird imagery on screen. The backdrop of the game is made up of an open field, with just a cow stood in it. Yes, Monty Python’s Spamalot is just that barmy a medium variance game.
Things only get more baffling when you head onto the reels, as a selection of famous images make an appearance. From the Holy Grail to Sir Galahad, the game stays true to the original production on this front and thus is likely to appease fans of the franchise. Graphically, Monty Python’s Spamalot is a well polished looking gaming that does the original West End show justice.
Following Sir Galahad
Gameplay wise, Monty Python’s Spamalot is a mix of the bland and the brilliant. Spread across 5 reels and 20 paylines, there is very little out of the ordinary to be found when spinning the reels of this title, which is a tad disappointing. Even the betting limits in this game are notoriously predictable, as the minimum wager to cover all paylines is 0.20, with the maximum bet coming in at 1000.00, so there is at least little bit for high rollers to enjoy here.
What does bump Monty Python’s Spamalot up a notch in our opinion is the progressive jackpot attached to it. Allowing any player to possibly bring home a life-changing sum of money, there is nothing quite like a progressive jackpot within the world of real cash slots.
Super Silly Scatters and More
Hammering home just fun this game is, Monty Python’s Spamalot is loaded with bonus features, of which all are well worth exploring. Across the course of the game you’ll find free spins, wilds, multipliers, scatters, with all of this being partnered up with no less than 4 amazingly fun bonus games. There is way too much on the bonus front to cover in this review alone, so we suggest you check this game out for yourself, as there is a huge amount of action to get suck into here.
Staying Within the Franchise
Monty Python is such a unique license and entity that finding something similar wasn’t always going to be the easiest of tasks. So, with that in mind, we felt that the best place to start is within the same franchise. Little may some players know that there is actually another real money slots title that carries the Monty Python name, with this title developed by Ash Gaming. Monty Python Life of Brian features the very same madcap reels and largely the same gameplay approach, so it’s well worth a look.
Monty Python’s Spamalot Steals the Show!
Monty Python’s Spamalot could have been yet another cash-in on the famous film, TV, and stage show franchise, but it has actually turned out to be so much more than that. Outside of a few below par gameplay elements, this game really is a cut above the rest in our honest opinion. Packed wall to wall with features, with a progressive jackpot also thrown into the mix, any player looking for laughs should certainly take a look at Monty Python’s Spamalot!
