Micro Knights Slot Review – ELK Studios
ELK Studios had a big 2019, thanks to their successful ‘GOLD‘ slot series. Which includes ‘Ecuador Gold’, ‘Tahiti Gold‘ and ‘Voodoo Gold‘. Each game has unique features all paired with exciting gameplay and high variance on offer. Now 2020 has arrived and ELK Studios has begun announcing new titles. The first is titled ‘Micro Knights‘, set to release 25th February across all sites.
This game has a theme of valiant knights and dragons. The background is filled with beautiful green scenery, with rivers and buildings in the distance. I think the artwork/ visuals are beautifully made and glad ELK Studios have decided to do a grid game. There are 3 knights around the grass and a dragon at the bottom of the grid, which come into play in various features.
Micro Knights has a grid setup of 7 reels by 7 rows, this includes cluster wins of 5 or more of the same symbol. This game is medium variance due to the max win capped at 2,500x and set RTP of 96%. ELK Studios has rated this game 7/10 based on volatility. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.
Micro Knights Symbols & Paytable
This game has 10 symbols in total, this includes 4 low paying symbols. These are represented by hams, wells, archery targets, and mushrooms. There are also 4 premium symbols, these are represented by rabbits, frogs, goats, and cows. In addition to these paying symbols is a crown scatter and wild symbol. The highest paying symbol is the cow premium, which pays 250x for 20+ symbols in a cluster.
Micro Knights Features
While spinning there can be a ‘Queue’ of symbols to connect on the grid to form winning clusters. Symbols of the same type are grouped together. ‘Charging Knight‘ will randomly move one row of symbols to the Queue, excluding wilds and scatters. The ‘Smashing Knight‘, will randomly increase each symbol counter in the Queue by one. During spins, there is a ‘Meter‘, which is filled by winning cluster symbols. When the meter is full a feature flag is awarded. The feature flags are ;
Inferno – Removes all low-value symbols from the symbol grid.
Extra Wilds – Places 3-15 wild symbols on the grid.
Super Size – Drops a big symbol randomly on the grid.
Charge – Moves 2-5 rows of symbols into the queue.
Epic Charge – Moves all symbols into the queue.
Boosted Queue – Use all symbols in the queue to form winning clusters.
Central to Micro Knights is the Bonus Game. This is activated when you land 3 scatter symbols. This will award 5 Free Drops, The queue and the meter are persistent between all free drops.
Overall, this game is definitely something different from ELK Studios and I think it will be a very successful launch. This game is very exciting in both the base game and bonus feature thanks to all the features on offer. Be sure to try the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
