SlotsMagic Casino has added a brand new online slot from Barcrest to their casino, Wild Knights King’s Ransom slot is the natural successor to Wild Knight’s and comes packed with more great features than the original.
It is also worth noting that for some player markets the slot may go under the name King’s Standard II.
The Barcrest slots are generally quite volatile so approach with caution, as a result, you can expect that this slot has some serious win potential too especially when using the Big Bet features.
Wild Knights King’s Ransom slot
The slot features a regular 5×3 reel layout with 10 fixed paylines, with the minimum bet being 0.10 credits. This time round there is 2 Big Bet options available at 20 and 30 Credits too.
In the base game, there are a couple of features to look out for, the Gauntlet Bonus which will randomly appear on a non-winning spin and change the symbols to create a win, and the Wild Times feature which again can be randomly awarded on a spin and adds a Multiplier Wild symbol to the reels increasing or creating a win.
In the base game, there is now a Pots bonus, players familiar with Barcrest slots will instantly recognise this feature, the Pots only appear in the base game and on reels 1,3,5.
Landing 3 Pots on the reels triggers the round where players must pick a card to reveal their pot which is a multiplier value times your stake, in big bet mode this can get very interesting!
Free Spins Round
In regular mode players must land 3 of the Crest Shield symbols on reels 2,3 and 4 which will then trigger the free spins mode, the colour of these shields will also determine just how many knights are awarded for the free spins rounds as follows, the more the better!
- Any colour – Awards 1 Knight
- Blue Shields – Awards 2 Knights
- Red Shields – Awards 3 Knights
During the free spins round, you have unlimited free spins until the Black Baron appears on Reel 5, if you have triggered the round with more than 1 Knight the process continues until all Knights have been used.
During the free spins round the Wilds become Stepping Wilds, when a wild (which are stacked during free spins) lands on the reel it will then step down 1 position on the next free spin, here you are looking for the Wilds to land at the very top of the reels so that you get the maximum number of stepping wilds on successive spins.
Big Bet Modes
There are 2 Big bet Modes this time round which cost 20 or 30 credits, selecting these grants 5 spins are then played at 2 credit stakes, but with many benefits.
If you are contemplating playing Big Bet mode make sure you have the bankroll to match it, it can be very rewarding but also decimate a bankroll!
In the regular game during the 5 spins any of the scatter shields symbols which land on the reels are then held in place for the remaining spins, this obviously makes it much easier to trigger the bonus round.
Along with this feature, you also unlock the Round Table Bonus which can be triggered in the base game and gives an extra chance to trigger the free spins or a multiplier to the win, at the highest Big Bet mode there will also be a Pot Symbol active on the wheel.
Due to all the different play modes, there are actually 3 RTP levels, which are based on the best strategy, the only real strategy present is to choose whether to take wins on the Round Table Bonus or exchange for the Free Spins mode.
The 3 RTP levels are as follows,
- >2.00 Credits RTP is 96%
- Big Bet Mode RTP is 98%
As you can probably tell there are lots of nice features packed into this 10 payline slot, you can test out Wild Knights Kings Ransom for real or play money at Slots Magic Casino.
