Knights Quest Slots
Dames, knights, dragons and steeds: the perfect recipe for an adventure. Knight’s Quest is a fantastical medieval themed slot machine by Novomatic which has a very modern design. There are 5 reels to spin and 20 paylines with which to win.
What’s more, there are a number of bountiful bonus games to activate, making this slot machine a very exciting prospect to those brave punters who dare to play. Bravery is indeed rewarded since the maximum standard play jackpot is worth a whopping 5,000,000 credits from a 10,000 credit bet.
A Long Time Ago In A Land Far Away…
Knight’s Quest is a contemporary video slot machine and as such, it boasts a very attractive aesthetic well as some sound effects befitting a medieval adventure. Players are transported into a fantastical realm with 5 reels made from rich mahogany wood over a backdrop which shows an ancient castle kingdom.
The most basic game symbols are generic playing card icons such as 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. These icons are the basic bread and butter of the game – they won’t pay out out a huge amount but they will appear more frequently than other symbols to top up the betting balance. The more valuable symbols are represented by characters and objects associated with the kingdom. There is an image of a sword resting on a shield as well as a knight’s trusty stallion, both of which will reward up to 250,000 credits if 5 appear on a pay line after the maximum bet is placed. The next most lucrative symbol is a beautiful dame, who will reward 1,000,000. The biggest bucks will be rewarded whenever 5 knights appear, giving out 5,000,000 credits. Yes, really!
Modern Game Controls
This game differs quite drastically from most slot machines at online casinos because it has a simplified set of game controls. Instead of finding a control pad below the reels, players will have to open the “Menu” which appears to the right hand side of the game screen. On this menu they will be able to activate up to 20 pay lines and select the size of the bets per line. The available bet amounts range from as little as 1 to 500, meaning that there are many different total stake amounts to fiddle around with until players find the one that best suits their betting strategy. The maximum total wager is capped at 10,000 – which is one of the bigger bet limits in the business.
Spinners will also be able to view the “Paytable” from this menu. The good thing about this is that the winning values will automatically update depending on how big the total bet is. What’s more, players can increase and decrease the bet by using some simple keyboard commands while viewing the paytable. Up and down arrows will change the number of active paylines while the left and right arrows will alter the bet size.
Pick Your Bonus Bounty
Knight’s Quest offers a few special gameplay features to ensure that every spin is filled with winning possibilities. First of all, there is a wild joker symbol which will replace all of the normal game symbols; 9, 10, J, Q, K, A, the sword, the horse, the dame and the knight. There is also a fearsome dragon symbol. However, players will want to stumble across 3 or more of this icon because it will give players the chance to choose a random prize.
There is also a scatter, which is shown by an image of a scroll with the word “Bonus”. These symbols only pop up on reels 2, 3 and 4 but if you find all 3 on any one spin then you will receive 100 points and a bonus game. There are three bonus games to choose from:
- 15 Free Games – this simply awards the player with 15 free spins of the normal reels with stacked wilds to increase the chances of winning some lucrative loot.
- Knight’s Quest – in this bonus game, players have to guide the knight to glory by spinning a wheel of fortune to take him up a path of multipliers. This wheel has values up to 6, which will determine how far along the path the knight goes. If the wheel lands on “Collect” then the bonus game will finish.
- Juggling Jester – this game doesn’t require any player participation. Instead, a jester will juggle multiplier balls. The thing is, this jester isn’t a very good juggler so he keeps on dropping the balls until only one remains – the multiplier which your total qualifying bet will be subject to!
Ye Olde Slot Machine
Knight’s Quest is a prime example of a modern slot machine designed by Novomatic. It is optimised for online and mobile play thanks to simplified game controls which are really easy to use. There is nothing simple about the game’s bonus features, however, all of which provide a little something different for players who like their slot machines to be filled with excitement and adventure.
