Knights of Gold Slot
- An enjoyable medieval theme running throughout
- Two reel sets with one game, and available both online and in betting shops
- A range of intriguing bonus features to trigger
We’d be lying if we said that the Knights of Gold slot brings a unique theme to the forefront of things, because it doesn’t. The idea of knights and medieval times has been done in a plethora of online slot games already, and this plays more like Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold rather than anything entirely unique. However, even with this being the case, NextGen Gaming manages to do something a little bit different with the Knights of Gold slot. This is clearly evident from the moment that you load the game up, with two reel sets being on display. One of them is much larger than the other, as far as height goes. The slot itself is playable from £1 per spin, although this amount is able to be increased up to a maximum of £100 per spin. Therefore, you have some nice customisation features to enjoy whilst spinning the reels of this one. The betting shop version on the fixed odds betting terminals has different stake options due to gaming regulations, however you can play up to £2 per game on the FOBT’s, which is more than enough for the £500 jackpot version.
The Knights of Gold slot features a layout of five reels and three rows for its main reel set, while the secondary one stands at five reels and 12 rows altogether. Across these reel sets, there’s a collective total of 100 pay lines for you to wager on. These are not something that you have the option of customising one way or another. Upon the reels of the slot though, you’ll find some familiar symbols, like the lower paying playing card icons. While those symbols which provide higher pay-outs exist in the form of such additions as the knight’s flag, the golden chalice and the helmet. Different symbols will provide you with different pay-outs, of course.
And speaking of the symbols, these are all designed with very high-quality graphics, ensuring that a visual treat is had by all who choose to play the Knights of Gold slot.
Knights of Gold Bonus Games
It’s not only a base game that this one brings forth either. There’s a selection of special features that are also incorporated into the gameplay of it. And once you trigger such, the Knights of Gold slot really starts to pick up.
Free Games Bonus: The bonus symbol that is included on the reels of this slot comes in the form of the axe and hammer crossed over. You need to bring three of these into view in any location on reels two, three and four in order to activate the Free Games round (there is a YouTube video showing the free spins in action). Once you activate this, you have five different Free Spins options to choose from, which are:
Three Free Spins and a 10 times win multiplier
Six Free Spins and a five times win multiplier
10 Free Spins and a three times win multiplier
15 Free Spins and a two times win multiplier
30 Free Spins and a one times win multiplier
Before the Free Spins round begins, you are given four flags to choose from. This will then show one of the following results:
Royal Wins Rimes 2, meaning that all 10, J, Q, K and A symbol wins are doubled
Remove Royal Symbols, which will take all of the playing card symbols off the reels
Wild X2, meaning that any wilds featuring in a winning combination will multiply the reward by two
Start Free Games, which begins the round without an extra bonus perk
- Shield Surprise Bonus: If you bring three or more of the shield symbols into view anywhere on either of the reel sets, you’ll activate this feature. This sees the five reel, three row reel set transform entirely into shield icons. Simply pick one of these shields in order to win a cash prize reward. You basically get to carry on picking from these until you uncover a ‘Stop’ image.
- Bonus Symbols Re-Spin Feature: If you bring two of the bonus symbols into view anywhere on reels two, three or four on the main set, the reel that doesn’t have a bonus symbol on it will then automatically re-spin for you. This gives you an extra chance to trigger the Free Games bonus round.
Knights of Gold is an ok slot, I doubt the long-term playability is there for a lot of slots players, however in the short-term it is good fun.
