Wild Shield and Scatter Castle
The 5 Knights wild symbol is the shield and has the ability to substitute for all of the symbols with the exception of the scatter symbol. The scatter symbol is the castle and will pay out 100 times the total bet if 5 appear on the reels. For 4 scatter symbols players will receive 10 times their bet, 3 scatters 3 times their bet and for 2 scatters players will receive 1 times their bet. The scatter will pay out in any direction and will be multiplied by the total amount that is bet.
The slide-a-wild feature is a good way to increase wins. The slider is situated above the reels and players can move this slider onto a particular reel. If a wild symbol lands on that reel players will win multipliers.
If the wild appears on reel 1 players will receive a multiplier of times 2, reel 2 will reward players with a multiplier of times 3, reel 3 a multiplier of times 4, reel 4 a multiplier of times 5 and if the wild lands on reel 5 players will receive a multiplier of times 6. If the wild symbol appears on the reel that players have selected the wild will be stacked and cover the entire reel. At this time a knight will appear from the side of the screen and will be pushed back by arrows.
Free Spins Round
The scatter symbol will trigger the free spins round when 3 or more appear on the reels. When the free spins round is activated players will receive 15 free spins and all of the wins will be doubled. The slide-a-wild option is active during the free spins round. The free spins round can be reactivated if 3 or more scatters appear on the reels.
Take a Gamble
The 5 Knights gamble feature will become active when there is a winning spin on the reels. To select this option players must click on the gamble button which will light up when it is active. Players can double their win if they correctly guess the colour of the playing card or they can quadruple their win if they correctly guess the suit of the card. If players guess incorrectly they will lose their current winnings.
5 Knights will take players on a medieval quest with the opportunity to gain extra wins with the slide-a-wild feature, free spins and multipliers and the option to gamble.
