Medieval-themed slots aren’t perhaps the most popular genre of online slot games, but you still see a fair few of them, and Black Knight, which is brought to you by software developer WMS, is exactly that kind of title. Jesters, kings, fair queens and all sorts of regal paraphernalia is what you will be looking at on the reels here. The graphics, as you will be sure to notice, aren’t quite up to the latest standard, but that’s not to say that they’re bad either, just lacking the 3D touch and high definition gloss. In addition, there is no soundtrack to enhance the theme and accompany gameplay. Instead, there’s a really rather basic, generic sound you can hear in pretty much any other game when you spin the reels.
As far as the setup goes, let’s first have a look at the layout. It features your regular grid of 5 reels and 3 rows. And it comes with a total number of 30 active paylines. However, players have the freedom to adjust the paylines to their liking. And this also reflects on the betting range, which is, by the way, fairly comfortable. The minimum bet you can place in Black Knight is only 1p per single spin, and the maximum possible amount you can wager is £150 per single spin.
The Black Knight symbol on these reels acts as a Wild, and as such, it will be able to replace any of the other icons when creating winning combos. Hence, it will be able to boost your winning opportunities a fair amount. However, the Wild doesn’t offer any payouts of its own. And on top of that, it can only land on the middle reels: 2, 3 and 4.
Be sure to keep an eye out for the Scatter symbol as well, though. This icon will be responsible for triggering this game’s one and only attraction – the Freespins Feature. To do this, you will need to land 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols on adjacent reels simultaneously during a spin. This will award you a total of 7 free spins.
Now, during the bonus feature, the Wild holds a new benefit. Whenever it lands on the reels it will turn into both an expanding and a sticky wild. In other words, this means that once you land a Wild on the reels, it will cover the whole reel it appears on, and on top of that, it will also remain there for the rest of the free spins.
On the downside, though, we should point out that you won’t have the opportunity to re-trigger the free spins bonus round.
Black Knight may not offer all that much in terms of visuals or special features, but it is undeniably a classic. It’s still pretty popular with players today, even though it has been around for a while now. As for the variance, we’d have to put this title somewhere in the medium to high range.
