Free Black Knight 2 Slot Machine Game
WMS found the Black Knight legend so fascinating they decided to use it as a theme not once, but twice. Having proven his skills in the original title, the Black Knight is back to once again fight for his king and the fairy maiden. You’ll find him equipped with same weapons at a battle field expanded by 10 additional paylines.
Black Knight is a legendary character featured in medieval literature, particularly that associated with King Arthur. Tales about this intriguing warrior are filled with acts of bravery. While in one he's portrayed as a jealous husband tying his wife to a tree for having exchanged rings with Percival, another describes the Black Knight as a brave teenager going against Sir Lancelot, one of King Arthur's best warriors.
He's supposed to be a son of a Moorish princess and therefore known for his black skin which, together with the colour of his armour and shield, explains the name.
Black Knight 2 plays and pays over 5 reels and 40 lines, though you're free to activate less and thus adjust the size of your bet. One can wager between $0.01 and $3 per line and spin the reels for a minimum of $0.40 (with all lines in play) and a maximum of $120. Winning combos will be formed by at least two occurrences of King Arthur, and a minimum of 3 Princesses, Jesters, or related icons such as the Crown and the Ring. The Black Knight himself, said to be a strong man gifted in combat, acts as a Wild card. He'll show up on 3 middle reels and stand in for any of the other symbols including Scatter. You'll be happy to know he's four reel positions tall and may land fully or only partially displayed.
Scattered Shield is a feature icon which will need to appear at least as a consecutive triplet, starting with the leftmost reel, in order for you to claim 7 Free Spins. An alternate set of reels is used, though symbols and payouts remain identical to those used during the base game. While you're spinning for free, all Wild symbols landing on the reels will nudge up or down to cover their reels entirely and hold their positions for the duration of the feature. Even a single one could help deliver respectable amounts, so can you imagine what 3 simultaneous Wild reels could do for your balance?

So how much can one hope to win when joining the hero in one his epic adventures? The game features an RTP of RTP 95.91%. Land 5 Kings while betting max and you'll collect $1,500 as a result; do the same with Scattered Shields and the game will pay its maximum prize of $6,000. One can additionally pile up hefty amounts during the bonus round thanks to locked Wilds stretching over entire reels.
One of the reasons the original became so popular was that it was initially available at land based casinos. Having achieved success in the virtual world as well, it was only natural for the developer to milk it by producing a sequel. When you keep all the elements appreciated by players to begin with, and add more of a good thing, success is pretty much guaranteed.
The question is, has WMS made the new release sufficiently different to attract existing and new fans? Black Knight 2 does feature better graphics and 10 additional paylines, but the rest is pretty much the same as in the original title. Players will benefit from more win opportunities at a price of slightly lower RTP and a smaller jackpot. Is this a fair trade-off? You be the judge.
