This is definitely one of the more popular online slot themes, and certainly one of NextGen’s favourite theme styles. 5 Knights follows the adventures of these brave warriors of the crown and is done up nicely with some good graphics and a few fun animations.
The sound effects and backdrop add a more fun and relaxed historic view and make the spinning a real treat. The symbols on the reels are all related to the theme and include some really nice artwork. With 25 pay lines and a range of coin sizes to pick from, players will be afforded quite a betting range. Add this to a few of the bonus features included in this pokie like the Wild slider feature, where players can adjust the Wild symbols effects. Plus there are some free spins to be won, NextGen’s favourite bonus feature.
Physical Features and Theme of 5 Knights
With a theme like this one it is actually quite tricky to assemble a working and coalescing slot appearance as the lore on which to take from is so large and broad. However NextGen opted for a more cartoon styled and fun slot theme with this medieval tune, so players will be welcomed to the slot through animations and some really cool symbols and backdrops. Whilst the other aspects of this 5 Knights slot are definitely thematically appropriate, it is the symbols and their animations that make for the real theme setup.
With the symbols on the reels players will find the likes of a Princess, the Hero Knight, trying to save her no doubt, a Gauntlet and a pair of crossed weapons. Added to this is a selection of playing cards, ranging from 9 to Ace and all displayed in medieval archaic writing. All in all, these symbols make for some fun and immersive gameplay on this 5 Knights slot game.
The betting situation is also pretty broad, featuring the 25 pay lines and an adjustable line bet with a fair range. This is intended, in NextGen fashion, to allow as many online players to engage and enjoy.
5 Knights Medieval Bonus Features
Some bonuses are just too crucial to the slot experience that to neglect them would be almost a crime. This is the case with everybody’s favourite Wilds, which fortunately have been included in this 5 Knights slot game from NextGen in the form of a Shield symbol. Except here there is an interesting feature alongside this symbol, called Slide a Wild. Players can select a reel before each spin on which Wilds will perform better in Canadian online slots. These range up from a 2 times multiplier on the 1st reel, up to a 6 times multiplier on the 5th. This just means that players can pick from smaller more often wins to increase or the bigger, less likely wins.
Additionally, in the chosen reel the Wilds will also appear stacked and consume the entire reel.
The Scatter bonus takes the form of a Castle in this slot and 3 or more will win players 15 free spins. These can be retriggered, include the Slide a Wild feature and have a doubled pay out. Overall not bad from NextGen and 5 Knights slot.
