This game incorporates a great theme into it on the whole, which leaves enough room for intriguing speciality rounds. The question is, has Barcrest added any to Wild Knights? Well, it does provide players with a wild symbol
, to begin with. This one will provide a substitute for all other symbols on the reels in order to form a winning combination. The only exception to this rule is the scatter shield icons. This being the case, wilds can be very influential in helping you to form wins across the reels.
You will also find that the reels contain scatter icons, which comes in the shape of shields. There’s a red one and a blue one. These can show up only on reels two, three and four. Any combination of three of these icons showing up will trigger the unlimited freespins round. However, if you spin three of the red scatter shields into view, you’ll begin with three lives. Three blue shields allow you to begin with two lives and a mixture of both provide a single life. During this round, if a wild icon comes into view, the reel will step down one position when the reels next spin. You will lose one of your lives whenever a dragon appears on the fifth reel and the freespins end when no further lives remain. This freespins feature also contains Jousting Reels, which sees two of the reels re-spin to generate a win. And furthermore, there are expanding wilds in it too. This provides a random chance for wild icons to expand across the entire reel on a losing spin.
Finally, any wager of $2.00 per line or more will also provide you with the chance of triggering the Knight Times feature. This can come into play at random and requires you to spin a wheel of fortune. Rewards from this wheel will allow you to trigger the previously spoken of freespin round. The icon that the wheel lands on will determine how many lives you start the freespins with.
