Chain Mail is one of Microgaming’s older video slots, though over the years it has lost none of its charm. Perhaps harder to find today than it was a couple of years ago, this slot is actually about food, if you’ll believe it. Chain Mail is played over 5 reels and 20 lines, and features a very basic wagering menu, which allows players to select coin sizes of just 0.01 to 0.50, with the ability available to wager up to 5 of them per line. Wagers in this slot are pretty fair, with a minimum bet costing you just 0.01 per line, per spin. At its most costly, Chain Mail will set you back just 50.00 a pop.
This non-progressive offering allows you to double your wins, whenever wilds feature in winning combinations. Wilds are also the best paying symbols, and should you find 5 of any active line, you’ll bag a win worth 6,000 coins in all. Wilds cannot replace scatter and bonus icons, but they can replace all other symbols.
The mail bag is Chain Mail’s aforementioned scatter. If a player locates 3, 4 or 5 of them, they’ll win 2x, 20x or 100x their total bet, respectively. This scatter icon does not offer players a free spins bonus, though. Instead, the honour of triggering a bonus round is given to the drawbridge looking bonus icon. Even then, there is no free spins bonus for you to play in Chain Mail.
The bonus icon in Chain Mail is also a scatter, of sorts. It can only appear on the first, third and fifth reels. When it appears on all three at once, it will trigger the Castle Bonus. To begin with, players are required to select a door from the main available on screen. You will bag cash prizes for your picks and if you locate Princess Roxy, she will offer you the winnings of an entire row. You can keep working your way up through the screen, select doors and winning cash prizes as you go.
One word of warning, though. If you locate Uncle Mordread, then the bonus round ends and you collect your winnings. You will then be returned to the base game. As good as this bonus is, you can’t help but think that a free spins bonus round would have been nice.
