Chain Mail Slots

Chain-MailChain Mail is a bit of a weird slot machine, mostly because of how it combines the fast food theme with the Medieval look. The inspiration seems to come from some kind of Medieval themed fast food joint, where you have people dressed up as knights and princesses, with various modern fast foods that have weapons or crowns incorporated in them. The game certainly manages to be funny looking, and there are a lot of details placed in the symbols, so Microgaming certainly seems to have put a lot of work into it.

There are a lot of things going on in Chain Mail, and they’re all taking place on 20 lines and 5 reels. The bonus game is interesting, but the scatter is also fun and profitable to get, while the wild is as always capable of awarding the top jackpot, of $15,000.

Features of Chain Mail

There are three types of features that the game offers. The wild symbol would be one of them, with multipliers attached. The scatter symbol is second, capable of triggering prizes and that’s about it. Finally, we have the Castle Bonus Game, the one that’s most interesting out of the three.

The Chain Mail Logo appears to be the wild in this case. As usual, it has two different roles, acting as the wild when it’s on its own, and as a trigger for prizes when multiple symbols appear on the same win line. The payouts go from 4x to 6,000x, for two to five wilds creating a combo of their own. However, if the wild is simply a substitute for another regular symbol, and a combo appears as a result, the payout that results from it will be worth twice as much. It can’t substitute for the bonus or scatter symbols.

The Mail Bag symbol is a scatter, which has only one role in this game, to trigger some very interesting payouts. You need a minimum of three Mail Bags on the reels, which will give you the minimum payout of 2x the bet. With four symbols you get 20x though, while five will award 100x the bet.

Castle Bonus Game

This is another scatter symbol, which has to be present at the same time on reels 1, 3 and 5. It has a B Logo on it, and when it is in those three positions I mentioned it will give you a bonus game.


In this bonus game, you have a screen filled with doors. You pick doors, and behind them you will find three types of symbols. The first one would be a number, which is the prize you get from it. The second one would be the Princess, which wins you all the values shown on the same row. The third one would be Uncle Mordread, which will end the bonus game.

Betting options and jackpots

The game uses up to 100 coins, 5 of them for each of the 20 lines. You can pick the denomination, the range being $0.01 to $0.50. Line bets reach $2.50, while the maximum bet is worth $50.

There are 6,000x line bet multipliers advertised as the slot’s top jackpot, and in this case that means up to $15,000.

Design and symbols

While the game went for the humorous angle in this case, it didn’t go for crude looking symbols, so you actually have a chance of being entertained by it. The Medieval look is there, and you actually have to look twice in order to figure out that it’s about a fast food joint, and not the real thing. They didn’t use playing cards, which I appreciate, and they seem to have worked a lot to make every symbol as fun and quirky as possible.
