Black Knight Slot
Black Knight is a 5-reel, max 30 pay line slot from WMS (Williams Interactive). Like many of the online slots provided by WMS, this is a rendering of one of their more popular real world slots that are typically found in Las Vegas casinos. Black Knight has proven to be one of their most popular offerings – so popular in fact that it has spawned a sequel: Black Knight II.
This slot is exceeding simple, which could be one explanation for its popularity. There are very few symbols – just a royal couple, a jester and the Black Knight himself. The other symbols are all suitably golden – a crown and a ring for example – plus a map of France with a large red cross over Paris. Perhaps Paris is where the Black Knight seeks his next plunder?
To play the game you need to select how many lines you wish to have in play from one to the maximum number of thirty, and the size of your 'bet per line' from 0.01 to 5.00 in 0.01 increments. You can simplify things by selecting the 'QB' option which gives you a range of bet sizes to choose from. When you're ready to don your armour, his the 'spin' button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest winning payout in this game is for two kings which doubles your bet per line. The jackpot is set at 1,500x for five golden knight 'feature' symbols.
The Black Knight is the wild symbol in this game. He substitutes for all other symbols but only appears on the middle three reels.
That golden knight symbol mentioned above appears on a black shield and acts as the 'feature' symbol in this game. If you land three or more feature symbols on adjacent reels in the game starting from the left-hand reel, then you are awarded seven free spins. During your freebies any wild symbol that appears expands to fill the entire reel and becomes 'sticky' – it remains in place for the entirety of your free spins. The only downer to your freebies is that free spins cannot be retriggered.
That's about as far as it goes for gameplay in The Black Knight. The only real bonus is the free games feature, so if you're looking for a slot with lots of extras, then you'll have to look elsewhere. Don't tell him that we said so, but we think The Black Knight is a bit of a let down.
