Return to an age of chivalric codes and holy quests as you await the healing power of the holy grail, the only substance with the power to cure what ails you. A very interesting take on the Arthurian legend, Fisher King is a standard 5×3 video slot, with up to 20 possible paylines. You can choose exactly how many paylines you want in play, as well as coin values and how many coins to bet on each line. So the betting is very adjustable.
The basic symbols (in order of value) are the king, prince, and queen, as well as the A, K, Q, J, and 10. The wild crowns can substitute for any symbol, except for a scatter, and you get paid for combos running left to right of 3, 4, or 5 of the same symbol along any of the various paylines that you have activated with your bet. The mostly filled heart encased in gold is a scatter symbol. 3, 4, or 5 scatters will trigger 10, 15, or 20 free spins respectively.
During the free games, each reel has a broken heart under it. A holy grail icon on that reel will fill half the heart. A holy grail icon on a reel that has a half-filled heart will fill it completely, triggering a payout. The more hearts that are filled simultaneously the greater the payout.
One heart is 3x your bet, two hearts is 10x, three hearts is 50x, four hearts is 500x, and all five hearts is a massive 2000x payday. These broken hearts are meant to represent the crippling injury done to the Fisher King, which only the chosen can heal. He is called the Fisher King because all he can do because he was crippled during the course of his duties is fish.
Aside from the broken hearts being refilled, you have the normal game going on during free spins as well, and as an added bonus the wilds are stacked. You can also trigger additional free spins by hitting three or more scatter symbols during the free spin period.
Risk Game Feature
Finally, Fisher King also has a ‘Risk Game’ feature, where you can try to double your winnings by competing against the computer to see who can draw the higher card. Pick right and you will double your money but pull the wrong card and your winnings will disappear.
The Fisher King is a pretty good slot. While the actual middle ages were probably a pretty awful time to be alive, the idealized versions from legend are a world of honour, loyalty, and service.
The broken hearts minigame within the bonus rounds is a neat and innovative feature and the graphics and musical accompaniment are decent without being over the top
