Special Features 101
Black Knight serves as a wild in this online poker machine. This symbol stands in for other gaming symbols to complete winning combinations. Unlike other slots, this wild substitutes even the Feature symbols, which is represented by Black Knight logo. The symbol appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4 and does not feature any other features worth mentioning.
There is only one bonus offered by this game, free spins bonus round. To trigger free spins, you will need to land at least three feature symbols anywhere in view. You will be rewarded with 7 free spins. If you happen to land any wilds on reels 2, 3 or 4 during bonus games, the wilds will expand to cover entire reels and also remain locked until free spins end. You are in for an enormous win if you manage to get free spins early while playing base game.
Paytable & Wins

Crown, Black Knight’s Ring and map among other regular symbols pay between 0.45x and 9x for landing between 3 and 5 of a kind. High value poker card symbols J through Ace pays the lowest; 0.07 coins for every three of a kind and 0.75 coins for landing five of a kind.
