The Wild Knights slot machine is a Barcrest title from 2014 although the graphics would make it seem as one of the earlier slot games. It’s a fun slot game packed with features, so any player would be advised to look past the awful graphics and try this one out. It’s available to play both in the bookies and online.
The Wild Knights slot machine has 10 fixed paylines, with the bet per line ranging from £0.01 up to £40, which means the minimum bet in this slot machine is £0.10 and the maximum is high rolling stake of £400. There is another way to spin the reels too, Hi Roller, in which case you’ll pay for 5 spins and you get to choose how much, from £20 to £400 online, and £20 or £30 on the FOBT’s. This is definitely the best way to play the game as the theoretical RTP increases because your chance to enter the free spins game is much greater.
During Hi Roller spins on the Wild Knights slot machine, each of the three Scatter symbols is held when you land it on reels 2, 3 or 4, and you need to land one on each reel during those five free spins, which is a far better proposal than playing the base game where you need to land three Scatters in the same spin. However, the trade off is that the rewards for winning combinations of symbols are far diminished during the Hi Roller game, so you are holding out for the free spins only.
Wild Knights Slot Machine Bonus Rounds
Knight Times bonus can be awarded anytime if your bet is £2.00 or greater, and you’ll see a wheel with prizes, some of them giving you an option to take a prize or start the free spins game with one, two or three lives. This feature will get triggered quite often and is a nice touch as it’s often only seen in the bookies on slots such as Rainbow Riches Pots of Gold.
That’s one way to reach the free spins bonus, the other is to land three Scatters on your reels in the base game or to hold three Scatters during the Hi Roller spins. Three Scatters of mixed color will give you one life for the free spins bonus, three Blue Scatters will give you two lives, and three Red scatters will give you three lives. The Blue/Red Scatter substitutes for either color. A life is lost when the Dragon appears on the last reel, and other than that, the number of free spins is unlimited.
The Wild Knights slot machine has several more bonus features such as randomly triggered Jousting Reelswhere two of the reels will re-spin to generate a win. The randomly triggered Expanding Wilds feature where Wild symbols will expand when they appear in a losing spin.
The Wild Knights slot machine has three different return to player (RTP) settings, these settings listed are based on the online slot. If you bet less than £2.00 per spin, the payout will be 94%, if you bet equal or more than £2.00 the payout will be 95%. The maximum payout is 96%, and you’ll get that during those hi roller spins which can be played for a minimum of £20 for 5 spins, the equivalent of £4 per spin.
All in all, Wild Knights is a fantastic slot game although it’s unclear why Barcrest would release a slot in 2014 with such horrible graphics. But still, it’s a very fun slot game and very rewarding.
