Knight Rider Overview
It’s been quite a while since NetEnt released a new slot game. The last one was more than 2 months ago and was Silverback Gold. But now NetEnt is back with a new title and it’s also a big title for sure. Knight Rider.
If you don’t know, Knight Rider was a TV show which runned from 1982 to 1986 starring David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight and his talking car KITT. This show was very popular and has stayed well-known for decades. Also because the Knight Rider soundtrack is one of the most iconic soundtracks from a TV show ever.
Now NetEnt has released their new game surrounding this theme.
You will find a background image of the TV shows opening credits with KITT on the left of the reels. And will also see all sorts of famous images, including Michael Knight and the big truck that would deploy KITT.
Knight Rider comes with 5 reels which are 4 symbols high and uses 26 lines. The game features wild symbols on all reels and bonus symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Knight Rider Features
Walking Multiplier Wilds
Wild symbols will have a multiplier that is the same as the reel it appears on. So when a wild symbol lands on reel 3, it will have a x3 multiplier.
When a wild symbol is used in a winning combination it will move to the right one spot for the next spin and also increase the multiplier to correspond with the new reel.
More than one multiplier in a winning combination will multiply each other.
Turbo Boost Feature
At random KITT might come in action and add 3 or 4 random wild symbols to the reels, after this the reels stop spinning.
Free Spins Feature
If you get all three scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 you will trigger 10 free spins.
During free spins there will appear special knight symbols on the reels. These symbols are collected during free spins.
Each time you collect 3 of them you will move up a level. This will award 2 more free spins and will add 1 random wild symbol during each spin.
In total there are 4 levels. When you reached this final level, 3 random wild symbols will be added during each spin.
By the way, these wild symbols work the same way as all other wild symbols, so with the added multiplier and walking over the reels.
Some casinos will offer the option to buy the free spins feature for 140 times your bet.
I’m very happy that NetEnt has finally released a new game again. It’s been too long.
And what a game! I think the Knight Rider brand works great and is a theme that a lot of providers would have liked to have.
Knight Rider feels a lot like Drive – Multiplier Mayhem, another NetEnt game. This also features the multiplier wilds and almost the exact same free spins feature. The only new thing is the walking wilds and the fact that you can now buy the bonus.
But I don’t mind it at all. Drive is already a pretty old game and this theme is just amazing and there are some subtle updates.
Knight Rider is a great first new release for the new year. I’m hoping they keep it up and we can expect even more amazing games from NetEnt.
