The Black Knight 2 Video Slot Game Reviewed

Black Knight 2 is the sequel to the original Black Knight video slot game by WMS Gaming. Both versions first became popular as land based slot machines and have been just as great a hit online. Even though the theme of both slot games have the same basis, the Black Knight 2 video slot has been overhauled and has some new and improved game features, brighter and more colourful graphics and slightly more realistic looking characters than the usual cartoonish imagery of the original.

The Black Knight 2 online video slot has a total of forty pay lines which are ten more than its predecessor had. The video slot features the standard five reels and unlike the three rows of the original slot this one has four rows to make space for the increased number of pay lines.

The Medieval Story of the Black Knight

The Black Knight 2 centres on a historical Arthurian style tale where the brave knight fights for his king, his kingdom and the honour of a fair maiden. All of the visuals of the game portray a medieval setting and the sound effects add to the theme with sounds of fighting warriors being played in the background. All of the symbols upon the reels relate to the story of the game and show images of the knight himself; the king; the princess; a court jester; a crown; jewels; high valued playing cards and more.

Three or more standard symbols need to land in a row on an active pay line in order to pay out and they must run from the furthest left reel towards the right. Bets per spin can start at a value of 0.40 up to the maximum value of 120 when all forty pay lines are activated and pay outs are paid according to the game’s pay table.

The Black Knight 2 Slot Wild Symbol

The Black Knight 2 wild symbol is represented by the knight himself. The knight symbol will only ever appear on the second; third and fourth reels but when it does it can act as a substitute for any of the symbols, including the bonus scatter symbol, when a winning combination is possible on a pay line. When the knight symbol lands on any of the middle three reels it will expand to cover the entire reel to add to the possible winning combinations.

The Scatter Symbol and Free Spins Round

When three or more of the scatter symbols land in any position on the reels the Black Knight 2 free spins bonus round is triggered and seven free spins are awarded with 1x multipliers. The scatter symbols are the ones that display the knight’s golden shield. During the free spins bonus round the wild knight symbols also become expanding wilds and cover the entire reel of which they landed on. When this happens on a free spin the wild reel will become sticky and remain wild until the end of the free spins bonus round. More free spins cannot be re-triggered during this bonus round.
