Legend of the Sword Our Verdict
Snowborn Studios has given us stunning visuals and breathtaking views in terms of theme, but it feels like Legend of the Sword is missing some key parts.
The Excalibur Scatters Feature is exciting, and it definitely has potential to deliver some big wins if you give it a chance, but some may pass it by because it does seem a bit average at t imes
Statistically, the 96.12% RTP seems good, and the 10,000x maximum win potential seems even better. If you reach anywhere near this maximum win figure you’ll undoubtedly sing Legend of the Sword’s praises, but for the most part we think it will get an average reception from players
