‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’ hit the big screen back in 1975, the first movie from the team that bought you the famed ‘Monty Python’s Flying Circus’ TV show. Based on Camelot and King Arthur, the classic comedy introduced you to characters such as the ‘Black Knight’ and the ‘Knights Who Say Ni’. This Bally gambling machine brings the same zany humour, colour and fun to the casino floor.
If you enjoy pokies with a range of bonus features and big winning opportunities, Monty Python and the Holy Grail makes an ideal choice. This game is not just about the crazy features, it also includes some significant progressive jackpot prizes. Here are the standout features:
While many pokies offer just a single free spins bonus feature, here you’ll find two.
Killer Bunny Free Spins Feature – To enter this feature you’ll need to land the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5. The award is 8 free spins with an immediate 2x multiplier applied to every win. However, your winning chances are quickly enhanced. Every second spin sees between 1 and 5 wilds added to the reels and these will remain sticky throughout the feature. By the end of the feature you are guaranteed to have between 5 and 10 sticky wilds on the reels.
Black Knight Free Spins Feature – This feature is activated by landing the Black Knight symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5. You’ll start with 8 free spins, but you have two added bonuses. First, you’ll find a ‘free spin’ symbol added to reel 5, which adds 1 to your existing total. Second, a multiplier symbol also appears on reel 5. This will see the multiplier rise from 1x, through 2x, 3x, 5x and 10x. Every time the multiplier increases, the Black Knight loses one of his limbs!
Progressive Jackpots – To enter the progressive Jackpot feature you’ll need to land the ‘Holy Grail’ on reel three. You’ll be entered into a game featuring a series of gold tiles, which you’ll pick one by one. Each tile will reveal one of the five progressive jackpots – Mega, Major, Maxi, Minor and Mini. The larger the jackpot, the more of those tiles you’ll need to reveal.
Randomly Awarded Features – You can be awarded one of the entertaining on-reel features at any time during your play through the Mystery Wheels system. Three wooden wheels will appear displaying the extra features and one will be selected.
Examples of these bonus features include raining wilds (between 3 and 8 wilds added to the reels), added multipliers (a multiplier of between 2x and 20x is applied to a win) and symbol swap (where one knight can transform into another to enhance a win).
This Bally designed pokie features a 5×4 reel set up. The standard symbols include King Arthur and four different coloured knights, as well as J, Q, K and A symbols. The single wild symbol boosts your winning chances on any spin, substituting for any other symbol apart from the bunny, the knight and the holy grail.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail plays out on Bally Pro Wave game cabinet featuring a curved LED screen. This display enables the pokie to show off the Monty Python madness in all its glory, with fantastic animation sequences based on the best moments from the movie. With soundbites too, this game is sure to appeal to all Python fans, but even if you’ve never seen the movie, this pokie is sure to grab your attention.
Pokies are all about entertainment and Monty Python and the Holy Grail has this in droves. The moment you hit spin, you’ll be laughing at the on-screen action and wondering what is coming next! All of the features awarded throughout the game continue the Python-style action – you’ve got killer rabbits, knights losing limbs and cows raining down on knights who decide to run away! With free spins and progressive jackpots too, Bally have come up with a sure winner.
