ELK Studios’ Micro Knights Slot Review

The Micro Knights slot is from ELK Studios and is played on a 7x7 grid. Playable from 10p to £100 per spin on all devices, this cartoon, medieval themed slot is all about forming clusters to add symbols to the queue – this will lead to 6 flag features being applied which remove rows, add wilds, remove low value symbols and add super sized symbols. This applies in the Free Drops Bonus Game feature too. With a 96% RTP, you can win up to 2,500 x stake on each spin/drop.

Micro Knights Theme/Symbols

Micro Knights has a medieval theme and is looks like a computer game graphically. With fields and a castle in the backdrop, you’ll see a 7x7 grid. Symbols include meat joints, wells, target practices, mushrooms, rabbits, frogs, goats and bulls. The gold goblet is the wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols bar the bonus scatter. The most rewarding symbol is the bull with 20 or more giving you 250 times your total stake.

Being a Cluster Pays slot, winning combinations are formed by getting 5 or more matching symbols in adjacent positions – they need to connect vertically or horizontally. When you get a win, an avalanche will occur meaning winning clusters are removed – this allows new symbols to land which can lead to consecutive wins.

The Queue

When you form a win, a row of symbols might be moved to the queue when there’s no more winning combinations. Symbols are added to the queue from left to right and the same type of symbols are grouped together. The row whose symbols can be removed are indicated by the Charging Knight.

The symbols in the queue are used from left to right and connect with symbols on the grid to forming clusters. Symbols in the queue can contribute to several clusters in the same drop – they also remain in the queue until they are part of a winning cluster.

Flag features

Each symbol in a winning cluster adds to the meter to the right of the symbol grid – when the meter is full, a randomly selected flag feature is awarded with the meter resetting. Here’s what to expect:

  • Boosted Queue feature – all symbols in the queue can connect with the symbols on the grid to form winning clusters
  • Charge feature – between 2 and 5 rows from the grid are moved to the queue.
  • Epic Charge feature – all rows from the grid are moved to the queue.
  • Extra Wilds feature – between 3 and 6 wild symbols are randomly placed on the grid
  • Inferno feature – all low-value symbols are removed from the grid
  • Super Size feature – a big size, either 2x2, 3x3 or 4x4 in size, is randomly added to the grid to give you a winning cluster

Free Drops Bonus Game feature

Look out for the crown symbol as this is the bonus scatter – 3 of them will trigger the Free Drops Bonus Game feature. With 5 free drops/spins awarded, you can retrigger the feature to give you 10 in total. Beginning with an empty meter and queue, you can benefit from all the flag features outlined above.

Micro Knights thoughts

The Micro Knights slot in colourful and entertaining – the key is to get consecutive wins which adds to the queue so they flag features are applied. The best one is the Super Size feature as a 4x4 symbol will result in a guaranteed payout.  Medium to high variance, the RTP is 96%. The most you can win is 2,500 x stake per spin or free spin.

Like other ELK Studios slots, it will take some getting used to – a few spins in demo mode will help. Micro Knights is quite simple really – form wins which adds to the meter which then results in flag features being applied. This game will appeal to gamers though as it does have that kind of feel.

If you like grid slots, Dragonfall by Blueprint Gaming would be my suggestion – alternatively, Cygnus by ELK Studios is their best slot of late.
