A Camelot Inspired Slot Featuring Free Spins with Expanding Wilds
Black Knight is a slot that transports you to a medieval court. On the reels you have the stately looking King and his lady queen, King Arthur and Guinevere perhaps? A smiling court jester in blue lightens the atmosphere on the reels, while a sceptre and the sovereign’s orb appear too. A map depicting England and France also appears, with a red cross near Paris – this is possibly the setting for the slot, or even the point of invasion! The black knight himself appears as the wild symbol. This mysterious character leaves his seal on both a ring and a shield bonus symbol too, showing his influence over the realm.
Black Knight is a slot for history fans out there, with the following range of features:

The feature symbol shows a shield set against a purple cloth background. This shield is black and features a golden knight chess piece, the symbol for the black knight himself. Land this symbol on 3 or more adjacent reels from left to right and you’ll win entry into the free spins feature.
You’ll be awarded with 7 free spins in the feature. However, wins are that much easier to come by during the free spins. The wild symbol, represented by the black knight himself, becomes an expanding wild during the feature, filling the whole reel when appearing. This wild, which appears on the centre three reels, can fill all three, ensuring amazing win opportunities. This free spins feature cannot be retriggered.
Black Knight is a five-reel slot featuring three symbols on each of the reels. The game pays from left to right and has a total of 30 win-lines. For ease of play, you’ll find a ‘Quick Bet’ option where you’ll find a slider featuring a series of boxes displaying different stakes – simply click on the stake to spin the reels. If you like the standard way of playing, you can set the stake manually, as well as change the number of lines using the ‘classic panel’.
A look at the pay table shows you that the King is the highest paying symbol in the game, worth 2,000 coins for the maximum five in a row. Close behind is the feature ‘Black Knight Shield’ symbol wins you 1,500 coins, as well as activating the free spins too of course. The Queen and the Jester represent the mid pay symbols in the game, each worth 500 coins foe the maximum five.
The lower end of the pay table features a red cushion and a crown, the black knight’s ring, the map, the orb and the sceptre.
During the base game, the black knight acts as a standard wild (not expanding as it does during the feature). This wild appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only and will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the feature symbol.
If you look beyond the reels of Black Knight you’ll see a brilliant purple sunset. To the left scene is a hill with an imposing castle sat atop it – possibly Camelot itself. The reels themselves are framed in gold – and feature a tan colouring as a backdrop.
You wouldn’t consider this to offer the most modern design – the symbols are somewhat basic and there is a lack of animation. However, the jester on the reels injects character and fun onto the reels, while the black knight adds an air of mystery. The soundtrack is pretty generic, where something a little more regal might have worked better.
Black Knight is a slot that will appeal to players who enjoy a standard, easy to follow set up. With free spins and a wild symbol, there is nothing real original here, so you’ll know exactly how it plays from spin one. The free spins feature adds a boost too, as the wilds suddenly become expanding, offering the opportunity for mega wins. This is a solid no-frills game. Look up Black Knight 2 for a similar gaming experience, but with enhanced sound and visuals.
