Everyone knows that sequels are generally bad. Well, High5 Game studios prove this point in this Golden Knight II slot game.
Head to a time to where princesses were beautiful and looking for their white knight charging on their noble steed across green fields to the castle beyond.
The Golden Knight II slot theme could have been romantic and alluring, but it feels old and dated. The few animations are crude, and even the graphics feel fuzzy and cheap – the older Knight’s Keep slot looks better.
In short, we weren’t sold on the theme, and adding some red curtains to frame the background of the 5 reels and 4 rows of symbols didn’t help.
And to confuse things there are two types of wilds that look almost identical.
The first is a banner and has a big WILD on it, as well as the highest paying symbol of the lot. The second looks like a banner but with a little ‘wild’ word on it, and doesn’t pay on a payline, but pays like a scatter instead.
They both replace other symbols, but it doesn’t matter, because the Golden Knight II paytable is only just ok at best.
What you want is those wild scatter symbols, because they payout regardless of how many there is, and anything from 25 to 10,000 coins. You can even get the charging knight to go across the screen and multiply the wild amount by 1x to 10x its value. Not bad hey?
The problem is that those wilds don’t pay out anywhere near often enough to make up for the lack of action in the base game.
So maybe the Golden Knight II slot free spins will save the day? Well, whilst it’s true that you do get more wild symbols in the bonus games, the value of the scatter wilds significantly decrease.
You wait, and wait, and wait, for a handsome prince to rescue you, and in the end, they can never live up to your ideals, right girls?
You are better off saving yourself and read the Aztec Warrior Princess slot review, where you’ll get empowered and richer. As for the guys, girls love to laugh, we’d suggest you play on Monty Python’s Spamalot slot to get a few jokes in your repertoire.
Because this Golden Knight II slot will not make a prince or king out of you.

We are not fans of this Golden Knight II slot on mobile by High5 Gaming. Maybe it doesn't deserve the 1-star review, and we were tempted to give it 2 stars because... we're nice?
But we don't see ourselves ever opening up this real money casino game again, with poor features, free games that never hit, and wilds that pay randomly and weirdly.
We suspect that there are big wins here if you play it out, and it's probably fairly volatile, but we don't have the budget or the patience to try and find it.
Golden Knight II is a 5x4 slot machine with 40 paylines, stacks of wild symbol that pay as scatters, scatters that trigger free spins, and a nudge feature.
