The Three Musketeers has always been a popular theme, and one I personally enjoy. The online video game version, created by Playtech is equally just as riveting as the magical story that inspired it. This highly animated version is based on the novel from Alexandre Dumas. You will instantly notice the characters of the Musketeers and the Queen’s Diamond when the game starts. Depending on one’s level of knowledge with the story, you instantly see certain aspects that illuminate from the story.
Even though there are familiar elements, the gaming community has put their own spin on this tale for the players to enjoy. Instantly I was taken in by the graphics and music. This game is pure enjoyment from the beginning. I have played numerous games and found some that were just mundane; this one doesn’t fit into that category. Some games become some complex that the story is lost within its rounds. I found that the interface on this one is user friendly. It is also customizable; the win lines are adjustable to the player’s comfort. You can bet anywhere from a penny up to a dollar. That gives a player about five thousand credits per spin. However, this is just given account for the two extremes. There are many different amounts that can be played; it’s all about how much you want to spend.
Like any good online game or story, there are heroes. Look for and hope to get
D’Artagnan, Aramis, Athos and Porthos, as they will trigger the bonus section. Getting all four will certainly send you to the bonus round, but each individual one also has that ability. Porthos and his sword will trigger a bonus, and this will allow a re-spin. On the re-spin round, one reel is wild. During the wild reel, the point values increase and the fun intensifies. When the luck of the drawl rings Arthos, it also triggers a wild round. However, this time the wild round is on all the reels, not just one. When Arams appears, the bonus round allows you to have a choice between two sacks. Both are filled with an instant pay prize. This prize is proportioned to the amount being bet. If a person is only playing one cent, then it is not going to yield as much. Nevertheless, those who are spending a dollar per round will see a significantly larger cash pot.
The symbol that you need to get is the Queen’s Diamond Bonus. This one occurs when two of the D’Artagnan symbols appear on the reels. This bonus is multi-staged and has five different sections. If you select the right paths, then you can collect more lives. This practice play section allows a person to get 120 times their total bet. This is where you hope that you have placed a decent bet and are taking home the big win. This is a fun game that offers a free practice round and plenty of adventurous twists and turns to keep it engaging.
