Black Knight 2 Slot Review
The sequel to a popular video online slot by WMS, Black Knight 2 slot remains close to the original’s gameplay while giving the graphics, animations and other effects an overhaul.
The game features five reels and 40 paylines, as well as a number of bonus features. Among them are stacked symbols including a Wild and free spins.
A dark and gloomy ancient building is the setting of the game, which also features a soundtrack that would not be out of place in a Hollywood sword and sorcery film.
Symbols on the Reels
The Black Knight 2 slot reels bring together a mix of higher value symbols that reflect the game’s theme, and lower value symbols that reference playing cards.
The knight on horseback is the game’s Wild symbol, while the symbol showing his shield and the game logo is the Feature symbol. The high value symbols include the king, a princess, the court jester, a jewelled ring, a crown on a cushion, and a mace, while the lower value symbols are the letters A, K, Q, and J.
A special feature of the themed higher value symbols is that they can appear stacked on the reels. This means that symbols can land on top of one another, as a way of increasing the chances of forming winning combinations.
Powerful Wild Symbol
In most online slots with a Wild symbol, the Wild can substitute for all reel symbols with the exception of the Feature or Scatter symbol. That is not the case in Black Knight 2 slot.
In this game, the Wild can substitute for all the symbols, including the Feature symbol. This means it can help form winning pay table combinations, and it can help trigger the online slot’s free spins game.
The Wild symbol will only be found on the second, third, and fourth reels, but, like the higher value symbols, it can appear stacked. This combined with its power of substitution could make for many more wins.
Black Knight 2 Feature Symbol
The Black Knight 2 slot bonus game is a free spins round, and to access it, players need to land at least three of the game logo Feature symbols on the reels. The first of the symbols landed needs to appear on the first reel, which is the one on the far left of the screen.
The Wild symbol can help activate the free spins game by substituting for Feature symbols.
The free spins game sees players receive seven free spins, which are played at the same bet as the spin that triggered the bonus game.
Black Knight 2 Autoplay
Players who find even selecting bets and clicking the Spin button too strenuous a task can use the Black Knight 2 slot Autoplay feature to get the game to do all the hard work for them.
After setting a few parameters using the controls, the game will play itself. This can be done by programming it to spin the reels a set number of times, or until specific conditions are met, such as the jackpot being won, or players’ credits reaching a certain limit.
