Pledge Yourself to the Castle!
There’s a layout featuring five reels and three rows worth of icons, which is a fairly substandard offering in terms of interface. The developer has also included five different pay lines, none of which are able to be customised. However, players are able to switch around the amount of money they wager per spin, which can be altered from the minimum of $0.05 up to the maximum of $10. There is the inclusion of an ‘Auto Start’ button, which allows all players to play up to 100 consecutive rounds at the same wager level. A ‘Max Bet’ button increases the amount up to the very top.
As it stands, the reels are filled with icons that are relative to the title. So, of course, there’s definitely been the addition of a few different knights, one wielding a yellow striped shield, another with a green cross shield and the other a half blue, half white shield. In addition, you’ll find the regular A, J, K and Q symbols. Making up the remainder are icons of armour, a sword, a grand castle and a helmet. All icons are expertly animated whenever they are included in a win, presenting an entertaining and fun game.
See What Rewards the King will Grant You
Knight’s Life, like many other products from this provider, has a gamble feature included in it. This is triggered at the end of every winning combination with a pay out less than $140. It allows players to either collect their winnings as they are, or gamble them to try and increase the amount gained. Choosing the latter option will present two different games to you, either the ‘Card Gamble’ or the ‘Ladder Gamble’.
If you select the card gamble, this provides a deck of playing cards to you, with several already turned over. Your job is to guess what colour the next playing card to be turned over will be. Correct guesses will double your winnings, while incorrect ones will see you lose everything. The ladder option provides a selection of different values, with a flashing light switching between two of them. Here, you’re required to stop the flashing light on a value higher than your current standing.
In addition to this, there’s a wild icon included, which is represented by the wizard. Should this be included in a winning combination, it will double the pay out amount. Acting as a wild, it will stand in for all other icons on the reels in order to create a win.
The noble steed acts as the scatter symbol for this game, and this will trigger the freespins round when three or more show up on the reels. If you spin three scatter icons, you’ll be rewarded with 10 freespins, while four will offer up 15 freespins, and five will provide you with 30 freespins. Should you manage to spin two scatters during the freespins round, you’ll receive an extra freespin on top. Furthermore, during this round, the three knights will be turned into wild symbols, providing even bigger chances of winning combinations being made.
The Life of a Knight is a Good One!
This game is one of Merkur’s finest creations, offering up a welcoming and pleasant experience for all players. The special features are nicely adapted into game play, and the ability to have icons altering into wilds during freespins is a great addition.
