Mighty Black Knight Features

The knights are mighty, the reels are mighty—sounds like Light & Wonder is trying to overcompensate for the smaller payouts! However, to be fair to them, there is a free spins game, that comes courtesy of the Mighty Knights, and those Mighty Reels that can expand to bring more paylines. Let's take a closer look.

Mighty Reels

Triggering the Mighty Reels comes thanks to the wild symbol, which is of course a Mighty Knight. When this stacked symbol lands in full view on the reel, it will expand to produce wild action all the way to the top of the castle and brings up to 100 paylines in the process. Any wins that are now in view, are added to your balance before the portcullis closes for business and the reels return back to their regular size.

Free Spins

You can play this game for free up to 20 times by landing bonus symbols. 3, 4 or 5 will award 8, 12 or 20 spins respectively and it is possible to get extra spins by landing further bonus symbols during the feature.

Unfortunately, if you trigger the feature while the portcullis is open, this will close as you enter the bonus round and it begins with a regular board.

The great thing about the bonus is that any part of a wild symbol in view will trigger the Mighty Reels and help to bring extra winning ways.

Mighty Black Knight Review

The Wonder 500 range is still in its infancy and is being met with mixed reviews from both slot reviewers and fans alike. The natural highlight is that you can play for smaller stakes and have a better chance of hitting the top prize but the downside often comes with less intricate features and dare we say it, lower production value.


It feels like this game is taking us back a decade to enjoy/despair at regular arcade sounds rather than a soundtrack. The animation does kick in slightly as the portcullis opens but apart from that, it is a bit underwhelming. The reels are set within the castle walls and the regular symbols are made up of card suits and other regal trinkets.

Game Play

If you don't find a wild symbol, then you are going to lose patience fairly quickly with this one. The Mighty Reels are the only modifier to show their face and nothing much really changes during the free spins bonus apart from the ability to trigger the mighty reels with just part of a wild symbol in place.

Win Potential

Some games get a slightly less than favourable write-up throughout the gameplay and design section but make up for it with their stats here in the win potential area. As you can probably guess, it isn't going to happen this time. There is still medium volatility to contend with and a top 500x win is only going to appeal to a very niche selection of players. The RTP always seems to suffer with these games as well and sits at 94%.

Our Verdict

We appreciate the ethos behind the Wonder 500 range but this shouldn't mean that the production value is lower than players would expect from a modern slot. Nobody is expecting the latest features and massive payouts when they pick up one of these titles, but we do expect a bit more effort to create an exciting adventure. On the plus side, you might see the max 500x win happen during your session and if you are playing for the top £2 per spin, you could still get a decent bit of cash to spend at the weekend.
