Knights Quest takes you on a journey back to the middle ages with this medieval themed offering from Novomatic. With 5 reels and 20 paylines, you can spin away on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from as little as 20p to as much as £50 per spin.
Graphically, Knights Quest features a castle in the backdrop. Symbols of the reels include swords and shields, horses, the princess and of course, the Knight. The latter is the highest value symbol with 10,000 times your line stake payable if you manage to get 5 on a payline. The wild is the Jester which is important in the bonus features described below.
When it comes to bonus feature, it has 4 which is high for a Novomatic title. Look out for the scroll bonus symbol as 3 of them anywhere in view will trigger the Feature Selection Bonus – here you can choose from 3 bonus features which are described below.
You have the Free Games feature where you will receive 15 free spins – you cannot trigger anymore free spins but you can benefit from stacked jester wilds on all reels.
The Knights Quest feature sees a jester spin the wheel to guide the Knight on the quest for his fame and your fortune – it’s a cash trailer where wins of up to 250 times your stake can be won.
Lastly you have the Juggling Jester feature where the jester can juggle your winnings to dizzying heights – he juggles the balls until 1 remains. There’s a multiplier for that ball which can go up to 250 times your stake.
Furthermore, Knights Quest offers you a Pick & Win Bonus feature which is played when you get 3 or more dragon symbols anywhere on the reels – this feature requires you to simply choose 1 of the dragons to win a cash prize.
I really like Knights Quest as it has a diverse range of bonus features and is in the medium to high variance bracket – I’ve gone plenty of sessions without winning very much but also had the odd time when I’ve won over 600 times my stake in the free spins feature. In terms of the Juggling Jester and Knights Quest features, I’ve won 250 times my stake once on each – I tend to opt for the Free Games feature due to the stacked wilds!
If you like knight-inspired slots, there is no better game online, in my opinion, than the highly volatile Black Knight II from WMS Gaming – it has a brilliant Free Spins feature where you can get sticky expanding wilds on up to 3 reels.
