Black Knight 2
This video pokie is slightly more complex than its predecessor, although there is still a great deal of unoriginality about the title. WMS Gaming’s Black Knight II is a treat to play if you loved the original, although if you are unfamiliar with either, it may appear a rather bland release. Black Knight 2 is full of jesters and jewels, princesses and princes, and everything else you would associate with a medieval monarchy themed pokie.
The highlight of the game is that there are over 40 paylines for you to wager on. Even better news is that you can adjust those as you see fit. You can also adjust your line bet, with coin sizes of 0.01 up to 3.00 there for you to use. Minimum and maximum wagers in the Black Knight II pokie stem from a low of 0.01 per line, per spin, up to a high of 120.00 per spin.

Wild symbol: The Black Knight himself appears as a wild icon in this pokie. Funnily enough, it is also a stacked wild. Wilds can appear on the second, third and fourth reels only, but can replace all other icons, save for feature symbols. Unfortunately, the wild only counts as one symbol, even if it covers more than one spot on the reels. This doesn’t really make it that much use as a stacked wild, then.
Feature symbol: The Black Knight II’s feature icon is a crest and swords. When it appears 3 or more times consecutively cross the reels, the player will trigger a free spins bonus game. Players can also pocket wins worth 2x, 10x, or 50x their total bet, for lining up 3, 4 or 5 respective scatters on the screen.
Free Spins bonus: This free spins bonus is about as plain as you can get. Players will begin with a total of just 7 free spins. You cannot retrigger the bonus, although the bonus round is played on a separate set of reels, which might just increase your chances of landing favourable wins, though not by much.
Funnily enough, we’ve already covered the maximum win you can pocket in this game. The top paying icon is the feature (scatter) symbol. Should a player land 5 of these across the reels in any position, then they will win the non-progressive jackpot worth 50x their total bet. It’s not a huge win, but it is still appreciated.
First and foremost, The Black Knight II is an improvement on The Black Knight. That much must be said in the favour of this title. However, WMS Gaming simply haven’t done enough to make The Black Knight II anything more than mediocre medieval themed pokie. There’s a serious lack of excitement to get your adrenaline pumping. There’s nothing inherently wrong with The Black Knight II, it just doesn’t offer you as much as you may find in other online pokie games. You can find better pokies with similar themed out there.
