5 Knights Slots

5-Knights5 Knights comes from NextGen Gaming and it’s a wonderfully designed game, with a number of cool features also being part of it. Themed around Medieval Europe, 5 Knights has warriors and ladies among its symbols, plus weapons and pieces of armor. While the graphics are an important reason why this game is fun to play, you will find that there is a lot more to it than this.

5 Knights has 5 reels and a total of 25 paylines. Among the features offered there are some regular ones, with free spins, multipliers, scatters and stacked wilds, but there is also something called Slide a Wild, which can bring you multipliers of up to 6x. As for the biggest prize offered by NextGen, it’s worth $6,000.

Features of 5 Knights

Besides the two regular features, the wild and the scatter, 5 Knights also has free spins with multipliers. A feature called Slide a Wild allows you to decide where the wild symbol is located, on which reel, and as a result you decide what its multiplier will be.

Slide a Wild

One of the things you will enjoy about this game is the ability to decide on which reel the wild will show up and what multiplier it will use on its wins. You use a slider to move the location of the wild. It can be on the 1st reel, where the multiplier for it is at 2x, or it can be on the 2nd (3x), the 3rd (4x), the 4th (5x) or the 5th reel (6x multiplier). The reel you choose will have stacked wilds as well, not just those multipliers.


As for the wild, it has the image of a Shield and it is capable of substituting for regular symbols, the Castle scatter being the exception.

Free Games Feature

Free spins are also available, as long as you have the required 3+ scattered Castle icons during the same spin. 15 free spins are offered if this happens and the prizes will all be doubled.


On top of the free spins, you will be offered a cash prize. For two to five scattered Castles, present anywhere on the reels, you will be offered prizes of 1x to 100x the total bet.

Betting options and jackpots

You may only use one coin on each bet line, but you can vary the number of active paylines. The denomination of a coin starts at $0.01 and reaches $2 when it’s at its maximum. With 25 lines, wagers can go up to $50.

The slot’s biggest reward is valued at 3,000 coins normally, meaning up to $6,000. There are of course some very big multipliers, coming both from the free spins and the wild, which can go up to 12x.

Design and symbols

As you can see, the theme is Medieval related, with damsels in distress and knights which are just waiting to save them. With various weapons and armor pieces which are also used as symbols, the game manages to make itself pleasant to the eye. It has a very attractive design, with a background which simply shows you a beautiful view of nature.


Symbols: Shield (wild), Castle (scatter, 100x total bet), Knight (500 coins), Lady (250 coins), Sword and Halberd (150 coins), Armor Glove (150 coins), Ace (100 coins), King (100 coins), Queen (75 coins), Jack (75 coins), 10 (50 coins) and 9 (50 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

I’ve enjoyed both the design of 5 Knights and the features, especially the multipliers of up to 12x which can be obtained by mixing free spins and 5th reel wilds together.

5 Knights can be found at any NextGen casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
