The second release of this series in 2021, following Lord Merlin & The Lady of the Lake, this title centres around the famous story Sir Gawain and The Green Knight, a tale based on chivalry and bravery.
As usual, Play’n GO has taken an established narrative and given it its own unique twist, making it into the perfect story for a slot adventure. It also expands the universe of this series of games, introducing players to secondary characters with their own stories to tell instead of relying on more famous figures like King Arthur and Lancelot to repeatedly be the focus, as many would.
While it is part of a series and closely linked to other titles in their library of content, this has a different focus and potential to the other titles, giving a new experience to a popular line of slots.
The focus here is on the potential. Not only is it possible to achieve 10,000x your bet in this slot, but players also receive a guaranteed spin with a x100 multiplier in the free spins round, and the possibility of triggering Shield Spins with the x100 multiplier in play, giving a chance for huge wins.
Exploring with narratives is a great way to bring fresh ideas into the slot market, according to CPO Martin Zettergren:
“We are always looking to innovate; be that varying the shapes of the grid, introducing new features, or playing with different themes too.
Many others overlook narrative, but we believe that the story is an integral part of entertainment. You look at any popular game, film, or book, and the foundation is telling a great story.
Once you have that, you can build a great game around it, and anything is possible.”
The Green Knight is released across multiple regions today.
