The Three Musketeers Slot Review


The adventures of Porthos, Athos and Artemis have become the stuff of legend and the Three Musketeers are as well known in English literature as they are in their original French. Created by Alexandre Dumas, they have become immortalised in TV series, film in both live action and cartoon form and they are now part of the selection of fantastic slots you can play at Bet365 Games developed by the giants at Playtech.

This new slot tells of a fresh adventure for the trio as they attempt to locate the stolen Queens Diamond and the slot plays out like a mini adventure as you attempt to help the three swordsmen complete their quest. The game is a selectable 50 payline game on a 5×4 reel set.  Bets start at just £0.01 per line although you can really ramp up the size of the bet to £100 per line, meaning a minimum bet of just £0.01 (£0.50 to play all paylines) and a maximum possible bet of a huge £5,000.

What is interesting about this slot is how the symbols are organised on the reels. There’s a number of lower value symbols, all artefacts to do with the Musketeers and the Royal Court, but there are also three scatter bonuses, one for each Musketeer, plus another Bonus feature triggered by D’Artagnan. There’s also a Wild which appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only and which can substitute for the lower value symbols. There is also a Free Games symbol which triggers up to 24 free spins in the Musketeers Free Games bonus when landed on reel 1 and 5 on the same spin.

Three Musketeers Bonus Features

Land the 3 Free Spins symbol on reels 1 and 5 (you can land more than one on a single reel) and you can trigger up to 24 free spins of the Musketeers Free Games. You can retrigger an infinite number of additional spins in this bonus feature as well as being able to access the Queens Diamond Bonus game if triggered.

Each of the Three Musketeers also has their own bonus game which is triggered when you land three or more of their own scatter symbols across the reels. The Wild Muskets of Athos offers 1 respin with Wild symbols randomly distributed on the middle reels. The Splendid Sword of Porthos sees one respin awarded with one reel entirely wild and the Golden Dagger of Aramis is a pick me game where you select one out of two bags of gold as your cash prize.

To get at the top prize however you need to land D’Artagnan on reels 2 and 4 on a single spin. This triggers the Queens Diamond Bonus and this is played out like a game where you need to collect hearts and coins to move through the stages. There are five stages to play through and each stage sees you pick one out of three options in order to progress. Pick the right option and you go to the next stage with the prizes you have won, select the wrong option and the bonus game ends. Progress through the five stages to stand the best chance of winning a bigger prize.


Editor's Review

This is a charming and hugely enjoyable take on the Three Musketeers Story, brought bang up to date and infused with a touch of humour by designers Playtech. Play through the storyline to advance further into the slot by completing tasks and moving through the stages triggered when you land D’Artagnan on the second and fourth reels. With bonus features for each of the three Musketeers (Porthos, Athos and Aramis) and a superb free spins round, this is as enjoyable a slot to watch as it is to play.
