Black Knight II is the title of this medieval themed online slot game created by the developers at WMS Gaming. This slot has been created as a sequel to the first Black Knight online slot, and Black Knight II contains updated graphics and 10 more paylines than the original game.
The game plays out over 5 reels and 40 paylines and contains plenty of royal imagery, as well as main bonus features like a traditional free spins feature, stacked reel symbols, and stacked wilds on the game’s 3 centre reels.
Themes and Design of Black Knight II
The design of Black Knight II is based on the legendary royal castles of medieval times, when kings, queens and knights were commonplace across the land. The backdrop of the game is a castle balcony, and golden light can be seen to either sides of the reel set.
The reels themselves are deep blue in colour, and on them is a variety of regal symbols, including the inhabitants of the castle and the king’s royal possessions. Along with these colourful, detailed symbols are classic playing card icons, which have each been accessorised with crowns, diamonds and fleur de lis to match the theme.
Symbols and the Stacked Symbols Feature
The symbols on the reels of Black Knight II include character symbols, which are the higher paying symbols in the game, and card symbols. The character symbols are a king, a princess, a jester, a golden crown on a velvet cushion, an ornate ring and the king’s sceptre. The playing card symbols are J, Q, K and A.
One of the bonus features in Black Knight II is the stacked symbols feature, which applies to all of the higher paying symbols. Each symbol may appear stacked on all of the reels throughout the game, helping to create more matching symbol combinations with each spin.
Black Knight II Scatter Symbol
The Black Knight’s shield and crest forms the scatter symbol of Black Knight II. Landing 3 or more of these symbols on the reels starting from the first reel will trigger the slot’s free spins feature and also award scatter pays, depending on how many scatter symbols triggered the feature.
Free Spins Bonus Feature
Landing 3 or more shield and crest scatter symbols from the first reel will trigger the Black Knight II free spins feature. Once this feature has been triggered, players will be awarded a total of 7 free spins. There are no multipliers that apply to winnings in this feature.
Stacked Wild Symbols Feature
The wild symbol in Black Knight II is the Black Knight himself riding on a horse. This wild symbol can substitute for all other symbols in the game. Interestingly, the wild symbol can also substitute for the Black Knight II scatter symbol, which is a unique feature when it comes to online slots Canada.
Furthermore, this wild symbol appears stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4 during the base game to create extra winning combinations.
