Monty Python’s Spamalot Holy Grail Jackpot is a 5-reel, 20-line video slot that was released back in 2012 by Playtech. The game’s theme is built around the movie, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The characters in the game are straight out of the movie, along with many symbols that made it popular among comedy fans. The original creators of the movie actually worked together with them on the project. This is how new animations by Terry Gilliam found their way into the game, in addition to the score by John Du Prez and the voices of several original actors from the movie.

Although it is a simple 5-reel, 20-line slot at its core with denominations ranging from 0.01 credit to 1.00, Spamalot Holy Grail Jackpot brings a whole lot more to the table. The game consists of four different acts (the bonus rounds but more about that later) that can be triggered in a random sequence whenever the player can spin enough wild symbols. Making money in the game, without triggering the bonus rounds, is possible, but the fact that the game has all kinds of special symbols in its repertoire, the player will feel like they are one spin away from triggering something interesting.
The wild symbol is the Holy Grail itself. As a wild, this symbol is capable of substituting symbols to create winning combinations for the player. There is one symbol which the wild cannot be substituted for, and that is one of the game’s three scatter symbols, the Monty Python logo.
There are as many as three different scatter symbols in the game, and they are represented by the Bonus scatter with the word “Bonus” on it, the Jackpot Game logo with the text, “The Jackpot Game”, and the third scatter which is represented by the Monty Python logo. That third symbol acts as the main wild, it does not have to be in a sequence and can be anywhere on the five reels, still creating winning combinations for the player.
When three or more appear at the same time, the game launches its bonus game, where the player will be awarded 10 free spins. The player also gains access to the Holy Grail Jackpot game where they can win the game’s biggest prize which is a progressive prize. The second highest payout is dubbed, the Slightly Less Holy Grail Jackpot, and that can amount up to a maximum of 5,000 credits.
Holy Grail Jackpot Game
The jackpot level can be triggered during the bonus game which can be launched by spinning three or more wild symbols. Once in the free spin game, the player has to collect 5 symbols ‘Jackpot Game’. Once this has been achieved, the jackpot game loads. It consists of six levels and the players can only win the big prize if they can climb all six by correctly choosing between the two possible items. Once on the sixth level, the player will either win the constantly accumulating progressive jackpot or 5,000 credits.
Spamalot bonus features
Each of the four bonus features can be triggered with the Bonus symbol, which can appear anywhere on reel 1 and reel 5 simultaneously. When that happens, any of the four bonus rounds can appear.
Storm the Castle Bonus: The player can choose one out of six strategic spots to defend the castle from flying cows. If the cow does not hit the player, they win cash prizes.
None Shall Pass Bonus Feature: In this bonus game, a brave knight will block the path of King Arthur. The king will try to strike down the knight four times, and if he misses all four tries, the player will get a hefty multiplier.
Knights Who Say Ni Bonus Feature
There are three rounds in this particular bonus game in which the player will collect various items. The bonus round will end after the third round regardless of the player’s winnings.
Killer Rabbit Bonus Feature
Inspired by a funny scene from the movie, the Killer Rabbit Bonus Feature is about a bloodthirsty rabbit who tries to kill the brave knights. There are five rocks on the screen but one of them is the rabbit. The player can throw grenades at one of the five rocks, hopefully finding the rabbit, otherwise they will be killed trying to cross the path.
