The Crusader could have been yet another leprechaun-themed slot (St. Patrick’s Day falls on March 17th) but instead, Elk opted for releasing a title that would not fell in oblivion on March 18th.
The Crusader is high volatility, 5-reel slot, offering 26-98 paylines. It is payable across desktop and mobile devices and accepts bets in the range 0.20-100 per spin.
The symbols you will land are represented by Royals on the low end, as well as better-paying cross, dagger, box, and a grail. All symbols may appear stacked. The crusader symbol appears on reels 1 and 5 only, and acts as a substitute to any regular pay symbol. If the crusader symbol lands partially in view, you are given a re-spin. If two crusader symbols fully cover reels 1 and 5, you are granted 8 free spins.
The wild symbols that triggered the free spins remain locked in place for the feature duration. A new symbol, called the Expansion symbol comes into play. You are granted a free spin for every expansion symbol you land. An extra row is also added to the reels. In the best-case scenario, you get 98 paylines and 12 rows,
Elk set the bar high with the Ecuador Gold slot, and players expect the Crusader to be nothing short of spectacular. Will Elk manage to outperform itself? We will find out on March 17th when the Crusader hits all Elk casinos.
