Another slot release based on Arthurian legend by Play’n Go this time taking inspiration from the poem, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. With a simple game mechanic and some great bonus features including a random multiplier Wild, The Green Knight shows the potential to return green $’s for players that are willing to risk it.
The backdrop of this game is exactly like anyone with experience in these ancient stories would expect, an overgrown dark forest with the sun poking through holes from the canopy. The floor is a carpet of grass with ancient rocks strewn here and there, although the game takes up a lot of the screen there is much to see behind it. The reels themselves are helped up by a decorated, metallic structure below which the stake options from NZ$0.10 to NZ$100 along with the spin buttons. Above the reels lays a great longsword that spans the length of 3 reels, on its hilt is the game title with multipliers spanning across the blade from x2 to x100.
The 3-reels and 2-rows on which the game is played are slightly see-through, although not as much so that it distracts players from the symbols being spun. The lower value of which consists of the 10 – A royals carved into stones of various shapes and colours, symbols of higher value include an axe, a horse, the Queen and Sir Gawain himself. The hero of the story is the most rewarding paying out up to 25x the stake for 5 symbols across a payline. The RTP (Return to Player) of the Green Knight is 96.27% which is slightly above average for slot games like this, there is also a pretty high variance as you can imagine from a slot offering up to 10,000x the stake per spin.
The Green Knight includes some exciting bonus features that can help add more to gameplay and can be the source of some impressive payouts. There are 6 Wild symbols available on the green Knight that can substitute for any other symbols apart from the Scatter to make up winning combinations. There are also multiplier Wilds that when used to create a combination will also include a 2x, 5x, 10x, 25x or 100x multiplier to whatever is won.
There is also an exciting free spin feature on play here, when 3, 4 or 5 of the Green Knight scatters land simultaneously an instant 2.5x, 5x or 100x multiplier is added to whatever is won. After this, the free spins are triggered where players are given 5 free spins with a multiplier increasing from 2x to 100x after each spin. That’s a guaranteed 100x multiplier by reaching this round. During these spins, the Green Knight scatter is replaced by a special Green Knight, if 2 more of these are landed during the free spins another 5 spins are awarded the multiplier in play when they are unlocked.
The Green Knight is an entertaining slot with great visuals, everybody loves games set in Arthurian times and this is no different. The most exciting feature we found was the free spin multiplier round.
