How to Play Wilhelm Tell Slot

Wilhelm Tell slot is already becoming another Yggdrasil favourite, having received the thumbs-up from thousands of players, since its release in early 2020. Let's dive into how to play this awesome slot. 

Betting levels & payline activation

The betting options on Wilhelm Tell slot are extensive, with 17 coin sizes (€0.004 – €2.00) meaning you can bet from €0.10 to €50.00 across 20 paylines. The paylines are automatically fixed to 20, meaning you really just need to ensure your coin/bet size matches your budget (the game spins with a default €2.00 bet unless you change it). All payouts at Wilhelm Tell slot sites are based on your selected coin size, with wins as high as x7500 coins possible on the luckiest spins.



You can easily optimise your gaming sessions when playing Wilhelm Tell, by clicking on the Settings 'Gear' tab at the bottom left of the interface. In addition to changing the music and sound effects, it's easy to boost the spin speed and set the slot to max losses on autospin. Next to the spin button on the main interface, you can also set the game to 10-1000 autospins.


Understanding game symbols & base game payouts

Wilhelm Tell slot features the Duke, Wilhelm Tell and Knight symbols as the high paying icons – backed-up by four standard Heart, Spades, Clubs and Diamond symbols. Payouts in Wilhelm Tell are awarded for spinning 3-5 of the same icon, across one or more of the 20 paylines. The Duke pays out x20 for three symbols, x50 for four symbols and x150 symbols, with Wilhelm Tell having a max reward of x120 coins, and the Knight x100 coins. The lower value icons can payout between x6 to x50 coins. Any coin win is multiplied by the coin size active in the triggering betting – which can range from €0.005 to €2.00. This means that the max base game win in Wilhelm Tell could return between €0.75 and €375 depending on the coin size selected. The potential for bigger wins up to x7500 and €376,000 (on the max bet), come virtue of the bonuses.


Bonus rounds

Wilhelm Tell slot has some fun and powerful bonus rounds – including the chance to go-interactive and decide your fate using luck and nerve:


Free Spin Mode: The Free Spin Mode is launched when you land 3+ Free Spin icons, letting you choose a reward of either 50x multiplier with 1 Free Spin, 10x multiplier with 5 Free Spins, or 5x multiplier with 10 Free Spins.


Free Spin Symbol: Landing the Free Spin symbol in the base game also rewards you with a coin-based rewards; 2 Free Spin symbols award x40 coins, 3 Free Spin symbols award Free Spins + x40 coins, 4 Free Spin symbols award Free Spins + x400 coins, and 5 Free Spin symbols award Free Spins + x10000 coins.


Wild Symbol: Wilds are three symbols high and can move up and down the reel if awarding a win. Wilds boost win potential and replace all normal icons in both the base game and free spins.


Strategy tips

Finding a lucky Wilhelm Tell slot session could theoretically leave you with wins up to x7500 coins – a max of €376,000 for the rare high-roller using a max bet.


Realistically, you're more likely to experience a range of luck and hopefully land some nice wins, regardless of your overall spend.


One strategy that makes sense, is playing with a high spin volume, to try and trigger the Free Spins which have an average hit rate of 1-167 spins. This doesn't mean your spend needs to be higher – you can adjust the coin size to help you get more spins from your budget.
