Black Knight is a Worthy Sequel to the Original
Black Knight II is the much anticipated sequel to the original Black Knight slots game. The sequel has given players an enhanced version of the original. Black Knight had only 30 pay lines, whereas the new edition has 40 pay lines, and 5 reels. Black Knights II has stunning graphics and good sound effects, and is altogether a smoother version of the original. This game also comes with locked wilds and expanding wilds in the bonus round.
Black Knight II has an antique setting, where the Black Knight fights not only for the kingdom, but also for the beautiful maiden, whose hand he hopes to win by gaining many rich rewards. The Black Knight has his origin in literature of King Arthur and his Knights, and this has led to the adoption of his character in many films and games. The reels in this game appear to be on top of an ancient building, which is probably a palace. There are also many symbols which relate to the old legends, like the Black Knight himself, of course, and his shield. There are symbols of the King, the lovely Princess, a Jester, a Crown and other jewels, like a Bracelet. The background sounds are also better than in the original slots game. In this sequel the sounds represent the noise of fighting warriors with the clashing of swords
The Bonuses of Black Knight II
Black Knight II does not have a lot of unique slot machine features. The Black Knight is the Wild symbol, and he substitutes all other symbols on the reels, to form winning combinations. The Black Knight will only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Like the original slot, the Black Knight II icon wields a great influence on the game and in this sequel he comes with a Free Spins round that comes into operation when the player finds three or more Feature symbols like the Black Knight Shield Feature, scattered on the reels. This will trigger seven more free spins, with a multiplier of doubling the bet. The Black Knight remains the wild even during the free spins, and will only appear on the reels 2, 3 and 4. Whenever the player lands a wild on any of these reels, then that wild will expand to cover the entire reel, and it will also remain locked in place for the remaining free spins round s. When the player has all three reels covered with the expanded wilds, which are also locked in, some really huge prizes can be won. There is unfortunately, like in the original game, no chance of obtaining another round of more free spins.
Black Knight II has more Winning Potential
Although Black Knight II is a lot like its predecessor, there are some advances made in this one. There is the additional row of symbols, which does give the player has a lot more potential in the free spins feature of winning more often and bigger jackpots. Up to twelve sticky wilds can now be won. All scatter pay awards are already multiplied by the total bet placed.
The win potential in Black Knights II is definitely greater than in the first edition of the game. The appeal of the big wins in the free spins feature is what drives this game.
