Coral present Game of the Day: Wild Knights
Today in Game of the Day we prepare to return to an age of chivalry and do battle for maidens fair with Wild Knights, a 5 reel 10 payline slot game designed by Barcrest Games. This game is not a sophisticated modern video slot, quite the opposite, its whimsical theme, simple play style and great wins are what keep bringing customers back. Check it out for yourself now!
The game itself uses a backdrop of chain mail, with gentle lute music, charging horses and crowd noises creating an image of the jousting arena of a Medieval castle and uses a knight, shields, coat of arms and standard playing card symbols to award prizes. If you’re playing the standard game the maximum prize is 500x your bet for a row of 5 noble knights, but if you’re playing as a “high roller”, with a stake per spin of over £2, that same arrangement would net you 1000x your line bet.
One of the games most generous features is the ability to win unlimited free spins by finding the correct shield scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4. The game uses 3 shield symbols; red, purple and green. The colours of your shields determine how many lives you start with in your free games; 1 life is subtracted for each time the flaming dragon appears on the 5th reel.
If you found 3 mixed colour shields you start with 1 life, 3 blue shields give you 2 and, should you start with 3 red shields, your free spins begin with 3 lives. If you’re playing for high stakes, triggering the free spins bonus is easier as any qualifying shield symbols are held until you either trigger the bonus, or 5 spins have elapsed.
There is also a coin wild, which can substitute for any other paying symbols to make a winning combination, but does not affect shield scatters.
Wild Knights is not a complex game, but its engaging setting and regular wins will keep you coming back. Of course if you enjoy all action video slots with progressive jackpots and 4 bonus games this isn’t for you; but if you want to sit back, relax and enjoy a high calibre slot experience Wild Knights is worth checking out.
