Play’n GO is one of the most prolific game developers when it comes to pushing out new video slots, and with multiple new games coming out every month, it is easy for some of their games to get swept under the rug and forgotten about. We don’t expect this to be the case with The Green Knight, however – and this brand-new release from the software provider is proving popular already, attracting some serious play-time.
The Green Knight slot is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot, and, like many of the game developer’s slots, there is 20 fixed paylines in play. You are unable to adjust the number of paylines active. When it comes to RTP, The Green Knight comes in on the higher end of the RTP scale in today’s online gambling world at 96.27%.
In this The Green Knight slot review we are going to give you an overview of what the game’s all about and what you can expect when trying out the slot for yourself.
The Green Knight Slot: Theme, Design, and Layout
The Green Knight may seem like another fictitious slot theme – but the software provider has actually built the game around quite a unique character who was present at the now-infamous round table alongside King Arthur. This character is called Sir Gawain – and he is actually King Arthur’s nephew, despite him not making much of an appearance in films and TV shows around the legendary knights. Lord Merlin and The Lady of The Lake slot is in the same vein.
When it comes to betting options, like the vast majority of Play’n GO’ slots, The Green Knight offers a wide variety of betting options and you can play the slot from between 0.10 and 100 credits per spin at all new bingo sites. You will find an autoplay function along with a quickspin mode – although these functions may be unavailable to players from certain countries.
When it comes to the symbols in The Green Knight, the game developer has opted to use playing card values, including 10, jack, queen, king, and ace to represent the game’s lower-paying symbols.
The high-value symbols are a bit more theme-specific, and you will find an Axe, The Green Knight’s Horse, Morgan le Fay and Sir Gawain himself. The latter is the game’s higher-paying symbol, awarding a payout worth up to 25x your stake for a 5-of-a-kind combo.
Special Symbols, Bonus Features, and Gameplay
There’s a couple of different ‘special’ symbols in The Green Knight, and it is actually the wild symbols that make up a large part of the game’s action. The wild – which is depicted by a giant Shield symbol – substitutes for all other symbols. When they land in view they carry a multiplier of 2x, 5x, 10x, 25x or 100x; this multiplier is then applied to any win that wild symbol helps to form.
The Green Knight Slot: Bonus Features
The main bonus round within The Green Knight is triggered by landing 3, 4, or 5 of the scatter symbols anywhere in view – and these scatter symbols are represented by The Green Knight. When you manage to do so you will trigger the main free spins bonus, and this sees you awarded with 5 initial free spins.
On every free spin, at least one wild symbol is guaranteed to land – and the multipliers attached to the wilds increase on each subsequent free spin. For example, on the first free spin the wild that lands will carry a 2x wild, the second free spin’s wild will carry a 5x multiplier and so on, until the final free spin which sees a 100x multiplier landing in view.
During the bonus round, if you manage to land two of The Green Knight scatter symbols anywhere in view, then you will trigger what is known as the Shield Spins feature. This awards you 5 additional free spins – and for the duration of those spins, the current multiplier that was active during the spin during which the scatters landed is then ‘locked’. So, for example, if you managed to land two of the scatter symbols on the 5th spin – where the 100x multipliers are active – then you would receive 5 Shield Spins with 100x wild multipliers landing on each spin.
The Green Knight slot is a great-looking game from Play’n GO, and we really like how the game developer has chosen to stray away from the 5,000x maximum win cap that we find in many of the software provider’s slots. With The Green Knight offering you the chance to win as much as 10,000x your total bet, there’s some insane win-potential on offer – and most of this win-potential is found during the game’s free spins bonus, mainly on the last spin, when the 100x wilds can land in view.
We also like that there’s big win-potential within the base-game – and we love how the 100x wilds can land in the base-game so it is not all centred around the main bonus round.
It is a great-looking slot, it offers significant win-potential, and with an exciting bonus, it should not come as any surprise that The Green Knight is already proving incredibly popular among players; another great release from Play’n GO.
