Riding the Crest of a Wave
Barcrest has been making waves in the gaming industry for well over 50 years, and you can trace Barcrest slots all the way back to 1968 when pubbers, clubbers, and casino patrons couldn’t get enough of the UK’s best fruit machines. The popularity of these land-based casino slots continued well into the 1990’s and beyond, but it was also in the 1990’s that Barcrest decided to expand their portfolio of slots to include online slot games.
In 1998, IGT decided that Barcrest games were so popular that it wanted to buy the company, and for 13 years they continued to increase the popularity of the Barcrest brand. So much so that in 2011 Scientific Games couldn’t resist adding them to its growing repertoire of software providers. Since then, fun themed slots and exciting innovations, bonus games, and features have continued to be part of the Barcrest package. Their most famous online slots are the Rainbow Riches slots which now includes Rainbow Riches Free Spins and Rainbow Riches Leapin’ Leprechauns. They also have branded slots such as Monopoly On The Money and Monopoly Big Event. If you like the look of Barcrest slots, you can also try many Barcrest slots for free.
That Mighty Reel Feel
Mighty Black Knight may have a medieval theme but there’s nothing medieval about this slot. Stakes of 0.5 coins to 250 coins for playing all 50 paylines in the base game should have universal appeal, whilst don’t forget there are 100 paylines when playing Mighty Reels.
This slot’s five reels are situated at the entrance of a castle, with the portcullis halfway up, or halfway down if you’re that way inclined. There are 25 reel-positions below the portcullis and another 25 reel-positions behind it. When you initially spin the reels into action you will only be playing the bottom half of the reels. However, when a wild knight raises the portcullis you’ll be playing all 50 reel-positions and all 100 paylines. Wild symbols may also appear as stacked wilds during Mighty Reels.
You’ll also want to keep an eye on the movement of the golden knight chess piece that is the game’s scattered bonus symbol. Hitting three of these symbols awards eight free spins, whilst four awards 12 free spins, and five awards 20 free spins. At any time, you can also opt to use the big bet. This allows you to link 5 spins, and prizes are doubled. The big bet also offers the highest RTP of 98%, whilst playing over 2 coins a spin offers an RTP of 96%, and below 2 coins an RTP of 94%. It’s also possible to play a free Mighty Black Knight slot or you can play for real money.
What to do on Other Nights
If, as a player, you enjoy certain aspects of the Mighty Black Knight slot, then you may also want to consider playing other slots that offer similar themes or features.
If you’ve enjoyed playing the mighty reels aspect of Mighty Black Knight, and you love music, you may want to try a few demo spins of the Kiss slot by WMS. This slot actually has a standard set of reels and a colossal set of reels. There’s also a special Kiss Feature which can award up to 20 free spins and 20x your total-bet. You can even enjoy all this slot has to offer whilst rocking along to classic Kiss hits like Shout It Out Loud, Rock and Roll All Nite, and Detroit Rock City.
However, if it’s the medieval theme that you’ve enjoyed – then it could be time to play Wild Knights by Barcrest. There’s no Gene Simmons or Paul Stanely to rock along to but you can lose yourself in the bard’s harmonious lyre music. There’s also lots of bonus and feature fun with wild nights, a knight time bonus, expanding wilds, free spins, and a jousting bonus.
If your quest for similar games continues, then you might also want to try the fairy tale themed Giant’s Gold slot by WMS. This slot is based on the Jack and the Beanstalk, complete with symbols such as Jack’s cow, magic beans, golden harps and the goose that lays the golden eggs. Indeed, golden eggs can be laid all over the place, with three triggering five free spins and every additional egg awarding one additional free spin. There’s also stacked wild beanstalks that quickly sprout all the way to the top of the standard and colossal reels. If you enjoy these stacked wilds, your quest may then lead you to play more slots with stacked wilds.
Mighty Good Fun
If you’re looking for some medievally themed fun slots that will get you away from the grind of a normal slot with five reels then you might find Mighty Wild Knight opens up a whole new world of slots with mighty reels or colossal reels. Of course, that’s not all it offers as it also has free spins and a big bet with double prizes – which is why we think it’s mighty good fun!
