The date is April 9th, 1291 in medieval Acre. The Knights Templar has suffered a devastating attack by the power-hungry Mamluks and by evening, only the Templar Fortress holds out, harboring hundreds of women and children. Above all, Edward, their leader, is determined to save these innocent lives and has ordered one final stand against their adversaries…

According to the developers at Elk Studios, the bigger the controls, the better (*chuckles*). Expect to see huge buttons on each end of the grid, with the menu button on the top left corner, a bet selector on the bottom left corner, and auto-spins button on the top right corner, and huger than the rest, the spin button on the bottom right corner.
As for the symbols occupying the grid, they are all related to the lifestyle of the crusaders. Expect to see symbols such as crusader goblets, rosary boxes, forge knives, and 3 different shield designs, which together with the usual blackjack fillers, offer rewards of up to 10 times your bet.
Moving on to the ELK Studios-patented betting strategies, we think they work perfectly with this slot’s mechanic, putting you at an advantage over someone who is not using them. Take the jumper, for instance… it will help you maximize on the respins-triggering crusader wild (discussed later) as it increases the bet gradually when there are consecutive wins.
The Crusader Slot comes with two wilds, which as usual, possess substitution powers to help you complete winning combinations involving the regular symbols. While the first one is a typical wild card appearing on any position, the second is a stacked icon of a crusader appearing on reels 1 and 5 to trigger the central feature in the Crusader Slot.
A partial hit of the crusader symbol will trigger re-spins as the symbol forces its way through the entire reel — just as the crusaders would use battering rams to force their way through gates. And if there happens to be a crusader in full view on reel 1 and 5, the bonus round is triggered.
8 free spins are issued gratis. Here, the expansion symbol can land and make the reels to extend 8 positions upwards, increasing the win ways from 26 to a whopping 98. This, together with the sticky wilds on reels 1 and 5 make triggering pennies from heaven beyond easy!
Siege the Crusader Slot
Like most ELK Studios slots, Crusader is user-friendly, generous, action-packed, and functions readily & smoothly on all browsers. Whether playing at the lowest bet limit (€0.20) or the highest one (€100), you will find this game exciting and rewarding at the same time.
Give the Crusader Slot a spin and see if you got what it takes to dine with the knights. Deus Vult Punters! (Translation: “God wills it punters!”)
