Playtech has quite a few online pokies in its portfolio that that are based on hilarious branded themes. Pink Panther and Ace Ventura are immensely popular, but not as much as Monty Python’s Spamalot. It is live at Australian online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.
Monty Python’s Spamalot was a 2005 Broadway musical that was a spoof on King Arthur’s Camelot. The online pokie uses graphics and audio content from the play. The high paying symbols on the reels are the characters from King Arthur’s court that are portrayed as a bumbling lot through caricatured depictions and irreverent win animations. They are King Arthur, Sir Lancelot, Sir Robin, Sir Galahad and the Lady of the Lake. You will roll over laughing as Sir Lancelot dances in drag and when the Lady of the Lake has her blouse ripped off. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons. There are three special symbols – wild, bonus and scatter.
Visual richness is not the only highlight of Monty Python’s Spamalot online pokie. There are excellent gaming features as well. Every time the bonus symbol appears on reels 1 and 5, you play one of four bonus games in sequence. In Storm the Castle the French knights throw a cow at you. If they miss, you win a bonus and the game is repeated. If you are hit, the bonus ends. In None Shall Pass you get up to four strikes on a knight. You win a bonus and a multiplier that depends on the number of strikes you take to dismember the knight. The Knights Who Say Ni has you to find a shrub for a knight and win a bonus award. If the bonus is not to your liking you can pick again. You get three picks in total. In The Killer Rabbit you try to knock out a killer rabbit with a rock for a bonus.
Monty Python’s Spamalot also has a two-tier progressive jackpot that can be won through the free spins bonus. The free spins feature is triggered by landing three scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You are awarded 10 free spins in which Holy Grail symbols may show up. If you are lucky enough to collect five of these during the free spins, you get to play the six-level Holy Grail Bonus. You then have to reach the top level of this feature where you are assured of winning one of the two progressive jackpots. These are irreverently named as the Holy Grail Jackpot and the Not So Holy Grail Jackpot.
