SlotRank: Play’n Go’s The Sword and The Grail hits right note in Germany

Continuing CasinoBeats‘ series of updates from SlotCatalog‘s SlotRank leaderboard, which highlights the popularity of online slots based on casino lobby position, this week’s focus is on Germany and Play’n Go’s new hit The Sword and The Grail.

Last week saw The Sword and The Grail make an early climb into the SlotRank leaderboard, peaking at no.4 as the game continues to slug it out with classic names such as Play’n Go’s Book of Dead and Big Time Gaming’s Bonanza.

The positions in the SlotRank leaderboard are calculated on a daily basis by scanning the lobby positions of hundreds of online slot titles across hundreds of online casinos in a wide range of markets.

The table above has shown that despite only being released a few weeks ago, the slot has made an early entry into Germany’s top 5. The Arthurian-focused slot draws upon the legend of King Arthur, and so it will be interesting to see whether its early surge in popularity will continue in the weeks to come.

It does tend to be a feature of the SlotRank leaderboard, however, that many of the older classic games such as NetEnt’s Starburst or Bonanza tend to maintain their fixtures in casino lobbies.

Taking Bonanza as an example, one of the most recent releases in the top five – albeit still launched three years ago, back in 2016 – has consistently maintained a spot in the top five in Germany, and appears to be striking the right balance with players; so the new slot has a lot of work to do to stay in the top five.

Elsewhere in the leaderboard in Germany, NetEnt continues to dominate the pole position on the leaderboard, with its 2012 release Starburst yet to be toppled from no. 1.

Gonzo’s Quest has dropped slightly to no.5, while Pragmatic Play’s Wolf Gold has just missed out on a top-five position. Tiki Vikings from JustForTheWin has made a jump up to no.8, while Big Time Gaming’s Extra Chilli rounds off the table at no.12.
