Knight Rider was released by NetEnt in 2022 and was the biggest release of the year.
It uses the very popular TV show which aired from 1982 to 1986 as the main theme. The show starred David Hasselhoff, who later starred in Baywatch, as Michael Knight. And he has a talking car called KITT which helped him with solving crimes and injustice.
Knight Rider uses 5 reels which are each 4 symbols high and comes with 26 lines. The game features wild symbols on all reels, which are also walking wilds. And comes with bonus symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 which will trigger the free spins when all three appear at the same time.
The game comes with a walking multiplier wilds feature during base game and free spins and also comes with a random bonus during the base game.
All wild symbols come with a multiplier of x1, x2, x3, x4 or x5. This depends on the reel the wild is on. A wild on reel 2 will have a x2 multiplier, a wild on reel 5 and x5 multiplier.
After a wild symbol is used in a winning combination it will move one spot to the right and its multiplier will increase to match the new reel. After reel 5 the walking wild will be removed.
More than one multiplier in a winning combination will multiply each other. So a x2 and x3 will become x6.
At random KITT might come in action and add 3 or 4 random wild symbols to the reels, after this the reels stop spinning.
Getting all three bonus symbols will award 10 free spins.
During free spins you will no longer see the normal scatter symbol, but now a special knight symbols will comes in its place. Every knight symbol appearing will be collected.
Each time you collected 3 of them you will up a level. A new level will award 2 more free spins and will add 1 random wild symbol during each spin.
In total there are 4 levels. You start at level 1 with no random wild. If you reached the final level you will have 3 random wild symbols during each spin.
After the final level you can no longer get more free spins or random wilds.
Some casinos will offer the option to buy the free spins feature for 140 times your bet.
I think the Knight Rider brand is a great theme for any slot game.
Knight Rider does feel a lot like Drive – Multiplier Mayhem, another amazing NetEnt slot game. This also features multiplying wild symbols, but these don’t move over the reels. And it comes with the same free spins feature.
I think Knight Rider is a great NetEnt slot game that a lot of players will enjoy. Even of you don’t know the original TV show.
