Black Knight slot: Win 2,500x In A Spin
The Black Knight slot machine is the crown jewel of WMS, a slot machine with five reels and a total of 30 pay lines. We spent so much time watching Hollywood blockbusters inspired by Marvel comics that superheroes feel like our best buddies.
However, this particular hero is a different type of Dark Knight, albeit loosely inspired by the Caped Crusader. OJO is a bit jealous, but then again how can you hold it against such a mighty fighters on his path to vengeance.
Released in 2011, the Black Knight slot is one of the most established slots in the WMS catalogue now supplied by Scientific Games. Read on for the lowdown on how to play the Black Knight slot for real money, what bonus features the game has and how to win. After all, OJO’s place is the fair online casino, and winning is part of what we’re about, amigo!
How to play Black Knight slot
The Black Knight slot is a 5-reel classic slot with 10 fixed paylines. You’re aiming to match 3 or more symbols to unlock a paytable win. Combinations must be made on an active payline, left to right, starting with reel 1.
If you’re just getting started, you can experience Black Knight slot free play using the Black Knight demo version. Once you’re up to speed, fire the real money version for your chance to plunder the Black Knight’s treasure!
Once you’ve mastered the Black Knight slot demo, it’s time to play the Black Knight slot machine for real. Simply toggle the Total Bet selector to choose the right bet size for you and your online casino bankroll.
Be sensible, gaming should always be fun, and you should stake only what you’re happy to lose. If you need any advice on managing your gaming, read our guide to responsible gaming.
You can bet between 10p and £500 per spin when you play the Black Knight slot at PlayOJO. Remember that there are 10 win lines, so your stake is split evenly between them.
If you’ve got a bit of carpal tunnel or want to conserve battery life, use the autoplay feature to play the Black Knight slot for up to 100 spins without the need to click or touch. Lazy gaming FTW!
Black Knight slot rules
The Black Knight slot machine is one of the easiest games in the OJO collection to learn, so you only need to peer through your helmet for paytable wins, Wilds and Free Spins.
Black Knight slot win combos start at 5x for 3 sceptres and rise quickly to 100x for 5 crowns, 250x for 5 queens and a mighty 2,500x for kings. As well as the paytable wins, they’ve snuck a random 500x win in there for when you spin 5 bonus symbols anywhere on the reels.
In the Big Bet Game, paytable wins are smaller as you get 5 spins combined for 1 bet, so 5 kings nets you 500x this time. The game’s official max win is £250,000 but that’s generally for the folks who play the Black Knight slot for high stakes.
Return to Player
Just as we found with other slots supplied by SG, there are various tiers of Black Knight slot RTP depending on your stake and which game you play.
Bet less than £2 when you play the Black Knight UK slot machine online and you get a modest 95% Black Knight RTP. Once you’re over £2, it rises to a very respectable 96%. Play the Big Bet Game however, and it tops out at 97.75%, a fine return in anyone’s book!
As well as a healthy RTP, you also get money back on every spin when you play the Black Knight slot at PlayOJO. That’s OJOplus for ya!
Black Knight Wilds
In the standard game, any Black Knight you see during a base game spin acts as regular Wild, and substitutes for all symbols except Bonus. As you’ll see in the Big Bet Game, they behave a little differently.
Free Spins Bonus
OJO believes that good things come in bunches but in this case you’ve got a single Black Knight slot bonus game. Nevertheless, you can make the most of it when you get 3 bonus symbols scattered on the reels.
Seven free spins will pop up and then cover all the reels, triggering more bonus rounds, which makes this a great online slot game for low limit players.
Land 4 bonus symbols and you’ll trigger 12 free spins. But we’re not done yet, as the Black Knight himself has a role to play.
Hit a Back Knight during any free spin – on reels 2, 3 or 4 - and he’ll expand to fill the reel and stick in place for the rest of the free spins rounds. That’s a Sticky Expanding Wild to you, chief!
Big Bet Game
Like many SG slots, the Black Knight slot machine has a Big Bet feature which enables you to bet a larger fixed amount, in this case £20, for 5 spins, autoplayed until they finish and where all wins are combined and paid at the end.
During Big Bet spins, any Black Knight symbols are wild, substituting for all symbols except the Bonus. As we mentioned in the RTP section, you play this version of the game with a higher Return To Player too.
Black Knight slot design
WMS’s Black Knight slot remind us of the great classic UK slots from another veteran games developer, IGT. Kings, knights, and queens are among the regal symbols that populate the reels of this medieval themed game.
At the cornerstone of every good knight story like our Black Knight online slot, there is a damsel in distress or a hidden treasure.
An impregnable castle lies behind the reels and the Black Knight is tasked to protect it at any cost. The Black Knight slot machine’s epic music, majestic visuals and overall competent sound effects brilliantly succeed at capturing the very essence of those times.
Let’s fight for the treasure! Grab your helmet or borrow one from OJO and enjoy our Black Knight slot free play or play for the big bucks – it’s your call!
One thing’s for sure, this WMS slot will keep you on the edge of your seat. Trigger the bonus round and claim free spins which can be re-triggered and always keep in mind the juicy jackpot!
