To help you get started playing Grail Maiden, here is a review and breakdown of the game play and rules:
Theme: So, for all you “Camelot” lovers out there, Grail Maiden video slot is sure to satisfy that Medieval urge. The reels are packed with castle towers, jousting horses, goblets, the maiden Gwendylyn and King Arthur himself.
Playability: The greatest thing about the Grail Maiden slot is the feel of the reels. In other words, unlike the fast spinning reels, these go a little slower as if they have more weight. They even bounce up a little each time they hit. The music that accompanies the spinning reels is a frolic number of chamber music. Although it’s not for my personal liking (I think it sounds more like a merry-go-round), you can turn it down low or simply open a live music stream and play your own classical music! The game controls allow you turn it on and off. Furthermore, this a very simple game, permitting just one coin size and not requiring lines to win (see rules below), thus eliminating the confusion of tracking crisscrossing paylines all over the paytable.

Rules & Structure: Grail Maiden is a five-reel slot with 3 “lines”. Not your typical paylines, winnings are based on which symbols show up on all reels in any position. In other words, paylines do not determine winnings. Whatever symbols show up on the screen is the deciding factor for the winnings. For example, 3 Gwendylyn’s showing up at once will pay 50 credits, while 5 King Arthur’s will pay 750 credits. See the chart below for all payouts.

Since Grail Maiden offers bonus video slots payouts, and since it doesn’t pay winnings on paylines (which generally are twenty and up), wagers are made in multiples of 25 coins, up to 100 coins total. This would be the same as betting 5 coins on all paylines of a 20 payline machine (100 coins total). Coin sizes are $0.01, $0.05, $0.25, and $1.00, giving a minimum bet of $0.25 and a maximum wager of $100 per spin. Keep in mind that all wins are multiplied by the chosen credit multiplier. For example 25 coins will be paid according to the above payout chart, while a 50 coin wager will return 2x each value on the chart and so on.
The most important symbols on the reels are the Chalice cup, which serves as wild for all symbols except the scatter symbol (Grail Maiden logo). Getting a scatter on reels 2, 3 AND 4 (only) will trigger the bonus round of six free spins. Five additional spins can be retriggered. See the chart below for details, including the Bonus Feature symbol combinations.
