Wild Multiplier

During any random spin, whenever a Wild symbol is present, 1 of 5 Wild Multipliers from the meter above the reel set can be applied to it or them if there is more than 1 Wild in view. Wild Multiplier values: x2, x5, x10, x25, and x100. The Wild Multiplier value will automatically multiply all wins the Wild symbol is a part of by its value.

Return of the Green Knight Free Spins

Landing 3, 4, or 5 Green Knight Scatters across the reels in the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 5 Free Spins and a payout of 2.5x, 5x, and 100x your bet respectively.

During Free Spins, all Wilds that land in view will have the current Wild Multiplier value applied to them. The Wild Multiplier will climb with each Free Spin until it reaches the x100 Wild Multiplier value.

Landing 2 or more Green Knight Scatters during this time will award +5 Shield Spins and another payout per your bet. Once Shield Spins is active, the Wild Multiplier value is locked, and all Wilds that land are held for all 5 Shield Spins.

Green Knight Scatters do not appear in Shield Spins, and the round cannot be retriggered whilst in Shield Spins. At the end of Shield Spins, the Free Spins round will pick up where it left off unless there are no more Free Spins left.

Return of the Green Knight: Our Verdict

Return of the Green Knight is a chip off the old block but with one exciting exception. The Green Knight was generous enough to offer up 10,000x as a max win cap, but here you can walk away 40,000x better off.  There are a few noticeable differences in the design as well, but Play’n GO has kept these to a minimum.

With Play’n GO sticking firmly to their decision to avoid Bonus Buys, Return of the Green Knight requires a certain amount of oomph if it is to keep players ticking along. Although gameplay is quite simple, it has a certain amount of flare to it which is instantly boosted by the success of the first release.

The Wild Multiplier values haven’t budged since The Green Knight, it’s a shame really considering this one has a huge amount of potential to offer its players.

The Free Spins round in The Green Knight was quite tricky to come by, but it seems Play’n GO has had a slight change of heart and made this more achievable, or it could just be that we had a good run during testing. 5 Free Spins doesn’t feel overly generous, but good things can happen during them, especially if you manage to trigger Shield Spins on the x100 Wild Multiplier meter.

All in all, we welcome the Return of the Green Knight with open arms, and we hope he does the same for us this time round!
