Based on the novel by Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers is the story of the King’s Guards Athos, Porthos and Aramis in Paris. Quickspin adopts this endearing theme to present the 5-reel, 3-row and 20 fixed paylines slot where a payline win can reach up to €600 with five of a kind on a payline or even higher with multiplier wilds!
The slot uses cartoon style drawings to act as symbols starting with the lower paying four poker symbols, but then it’s on to seven different characters that represent the middle to higher level paying symbols. The game background is creatively decorated in roses and the shadow of trees and fields appear in the background. The cherry on the cake are the reels that have an almost regal appearance to them. The accompanying music seems fitting for the period reinforcing the theme along with some sound effects that build anticipation.
Sword scatter, nudging expanded-wilds with multipliers
With a Three Musketeers theme, you would expect to find symbols reminiscent of the story and you find exactly that starting with the sword symbol, which acts as a bonus scatter that unlocks 10 free spins and a 3x multiplier when the symbols appear in sets of three. Additionally, you will find expanded joker wild symbols that can occupy up to an entire reel. The wild symbols have the ability to nudge either up or down to create winning combinations during free spins while also acting as a randomly selected 1x to 4x multipliers. What’s more the three expanded Musketeer symbols have the ability to substitute for each other during free spins.
All for one!
The theoretical return to player (RTP) for The Three Musketeers is 96.64% and stakes can range from as petite as €0.25 to as grand as €100 if you’re a high rolling player. The variance is around a medium with less frequent wins that tend to be smaller in magnitude. Payline wins are awarded based on the amounts in the paytable. Individual payouts are not overwhelming if you overlook the wild multipliers topping out at 6x your total bet which is rather disappointing. This means that you probably need to rely on multiple payline wins per round which is not unrealistic given 20 paylines, expanded wild symbols and the features we already outlined during free spins. This game may appeal to you if you’re a fan of the story and Quickspin does a nice job of appealing to the senses with the graphics and sound effects and if you would like to try the slot before playing for money you can do so online.
